Lost in Me is the first book in the Here and Now trilogy, a spin-off of the New York Times and USA Today best-selling New Hope series. It is not a stand-alone and is intended to be enjoyed with books two and three, Fall to You and All for This.
The last thing I remember is having drinks at Brady's and trying to avoid eye-contact with my life-long crush - the gorgeous, unattainable Maximilian Hallowell. They tell me that was a year ago, but I have no memories of anything since then. What I do have is this ring on my finger that Max says he gave me, and this much-thinner body I've dreamed of most of my life. Aside from a case of retrograde amnesia, everything seems almost... perfect.
But the deeper I immerse myself into this new world of mine - planning a wedding to a man I don't remember dating, attempting to run a business I don't remember starting - the clearer it becomes that nothing is as it seems. Do I have the life I've always wanted or is it a facade propped up by secrets I don't even know I have?
I need answers before I marry Max, and the only person who seems to have them is the angry, tatted, sexy-as-sin rocker Nate Crane. And Nate wants me for himself.
Lost in Me is not a standalone novel, as the story continues in Here and Now book two, Fall to You.

Was worried in the beginning as the book started off slow but damn if this book did not grab me and suck me in. So emotional and NATE.... He is the man! Loved his character so much and can't wait to see where the next book takes us.
All i can say is i am already downloading the next book. A must listen!
I've read this book, and I've listened to it. I enjoyed both equally. The narrator was really did a great job bringing the characters to life.
I love Hanna. Hand's down, she's amazing. BUT I've also got a soft spot for the sexy rocker, Nate Crane.
The very last one, because it had be DYING to get to the next book!
What if you woke up with the life you've always dreamed of? How hard would you look beneath the surface?
Lexi Ryan NEVER disappoints. Her writing is fantastic, her characters relatable, and her plots twisty and sexy. I can never get enough!
Hanna Loves Who?
Lexi has a writing style all her own. It translates to well to audio.
I read Lost in Me before listening on Audible. Piper delivers Hanna's story in just the right tone.
Hanna and Nate are by the river and she finds out who he is to her for the first time. Nate...sigh...
I've read all of the books in the Here and Now trilogy. I can't wait to listen to the other two!!
Yes, because it is an amazing story that draws you in from the very first page.
Trying to figure out what was happening in the story and where Lexi Ryan was taking the story.
She lets me experience the book from a different perspective. You can just listen to the story and you see things in a different way than if you were to just read it.
This book will leave you on the edge of your seat, biting your nails waiting to find out what happens next.
This is an amazing trilogy. You will love all the characters in this book that you will be sad that it ends.
I love being swept away by a new romance and thankfully Audible's ever growing Library means I get to indulge myself over and over again
Oh what a fantastic twisted delicious love triangle this is as Lexi Ryan cleverly spun an intricate web between Hannah, Max and Nate.... Hannah woke up, then Max was there, then questions, insecurities, secrets, then Nate was there. More questions.... more insecurities, more secrets but this time heartache and a tear-filled dilemma too. But this story is way way more than just a mere love triangle.
This is such a well written and developed plot and, as is slowly unfolds, you have NO idea where the story is headed so you have to listen to the heartbreak, the drama, the emotional roller coaster and the romance as it all brilliantly plays out. And you get caught up in the tension, the twists and the devastating turmoil in everyone's lives. It's sensual and sexy yet there's been no 'coupling' but lots of 'other' activities.
Then, oh boy, then came the Nate's WTF declaration and a gasp, mouth open HOLY SH*T of a cliffhanger"...... that I just didn't EVER see that particular one coming. But the best, ahhhh and sigh the best, is that the whole trilogy is available now..... no tear your hair out waiting, no forgetting parts, no will they won't they - no, just this quick review then straight into books 2 then 3.
Worth the credit? This is a series that any romance fan would love love love as I did so YES YES and shouting it loud YES creditworthy. Great narration too which made ever single chapter, every single paragraph and every single word just perfect.
Books Make Me HAPPY
What a twist on the common amnesia story line. I was absolutely enthralled with the entire book. The narrator, the characters and the plot continued to develop throughout. I could not put it down! Already purchased next in the series and will be encouraging my book club members to read/listen with whispersync!
Be careful of 2 things! First, this book ends like a soap opera that sucks you in. There is no way you will be able to not listen to the next book! It ends with lots of things unknown and unfinished. The second thing is that you simply cannot stop listening!!! Don't start until you have extended time to listen. It is suspenseful & intriguing.
Lexi Ryan tells a fantastic story in Lost in Me and Piper Goodeve brings Ryan's words to life with her emotional narration of Hanna's flashbacks and current situation. Piper allows listeners to experience the aftermath of Hanna's accident, her frustration over her missed memories, her feelings for two men who seem to both adore her, and her heartache as things become clearer, and truths are exposed that Hanna might wish had stayed lost in a way that we feel everything Hanna's feeling and can't help but be wrecked by her reactions.
Hanna is a very relatable character to a lot of readers. All of her life, she has struggled with her weight, which immensely lowers her self esteem. She has never felt good enough due to her mother’s comments and the beautiful people who surround here. Her life seems too good to be true and perhaps it is because as Hanna slowly regains her memory, secrets and truths are revealed that send her life spiraling out of control. When the final puzzle pieces are put in place, who will Hanna choose and how will she move on, knowing that her life will never be the same?
Lost in Me is a fantastic read and listening experience. I love how Lexi Ryan presents Hanna’s memories as flashbacks, so we, as readers and as listeners of Piper's narration, experience them right along with her. As Hanna is trying to solve the mystery of the last eleven months, all of her thoughts and emotions are shown clearly through Lexi Ryan’s explanations. Where Hanna’s story is going to go is anyone’s guess because readers are left with a bit of a cliffhanger but one thing is for sure, it’s going to be a hell of a ride…with two love interests, a memory not fully learned, and a variety of other complications, there is still a lot to be revealed, and I, for one, can't wait to see how it all plays out.
I definitely hope Piper Goodeve continues to narrate Hanna's story because she does a great job!
A complimentary audio file was given by the author in exchange for an honest review!
5 poison apples
I busy myself living life, chasing smiles, and enjoying adventures!
The story was written in such a way that I felt as if I were trying to put the pieces together along side the main character (Hannah). I couldn't stop listening if I tried simply because, while so much happened in this book, there was still so much left unknown. I was pleased with the fact that there were tons of holes in the story (essential information) yet I had enough story to feel intrigued and invested. I am eager to read the next book to continue the plight for answers, yet I didn't walk away saying "what was that about!?!" I read this book in one day because the storyline flowed so smoothly that there wasn't an obvious spot to pause. I bought this book on a whim and I was pleasantly surprised!
