People come into our lives. Some stay, and many go. Some build us up, while most tear us down. They become our friends, our enemies, our lovers, our tormentors. Christian Davison came into mine, and I knew I’d never be the same.
To Elizabeth Ayers, New York City had always been a dream. She’s worked her entire young life to make it here.
Groomed to one day take over his father’s law firm, attending Columbia University was Christian Davison’s only option.
Neither wanted anything more until they sat across from each other at a café table after being paired as study partners. Christian wants her, but Elizabeth knows better than to give into their intense attraction. Yet there is little she can do to stay away.
Lost to You and Take This Regret can be read as Stand-Alone Novels. Recommended reading order: Lost to You, Take This Regret, If Forever Comes.

This book may be unsuitable for people under 17 years of age due to its use of sexual content, drug and alcohol use, and/or violence.

I had just finished reading a fantastic couple of books that left me on a book buzz high. This was the perfect short sweet novella that let me continue to ride the wave for a little while longer.

Lost to You is a beautiful story about two equally beautiful people. Christian and Elizabeth are both at college, studying the same course but that is where the similarities end. Christian comes from a family of privilege. A thirst for success and society’s good opinion drove his family. Cold and indifferent to Christian’s feelings, they doled out their tough love in the most insensitive way.

Elizabeth and her family were the complete opposite. They were hard honest working people who did whatever was needed to support each other. Love was the precious element that held their family together. Her inner beauty and friendship found Christian craving her closeness in a way he had never felt before.

“It’s a date,” I hurried to call after her.

She swung the door open, shaking her head with a small laugh.

“No, Christian, it’s not.”

Love is infectious and impossible to ignore and often confused with lust. Elizabeth values their friendship over everything else. Desperately missing her family and feeling the lonely void of not having them close, having Christian’s companionship is too good to risk losing.

For a story based around first year college students, there was an overall air of maturity despite the naive moves both stumbled through. Each time getting back on their feet and learning from the error of their ways. Confronted with several challenges, they found themselves drawn closer to each other to the point they couldn’t resist their love for each other.

Lost To You has been a book I have been meaning to read for a while. A story packed with emotion, friendship and lighthearted moments. It’s the prequel to Take This Regret which I read a few years ago and I have an inkling I am going to read it again soon 🙂
