Publisher's Summary

The New York Times best seller...

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 is the prequel to the best-selling romance Take This Regret. A new-adult novella, recommended for listeners 17 and up. It's unnecessary to have listened to Take This Regret to enjoy Lost to You.

Sappy

I started out liking the book, but then it got really sappy. We are to believe that the couple has such strong and overwhelming feelings for each other and they are only kids?

Nice start to the series

This was a good start to the series, I am curious to see what happens to Christian and Elizabeth now that they have finally gotten together. I have to say that I really disliked Christian's parents, I had hoped that at least one of them would be a good parent but sadly NO :(

This is the first book I have read by A.L. Jackson but I have a few other books of her on my TBR shelf and I just added the rest of this series so I know this will not be the last of her work that I read. :)

I love Andi Arndt’s naration, she is truly talented. She has has a gift in the way she can change her voice for each character and it’s so clearly done that there is no guessing about who’s POV she’s portraying.

I would definitely recommend this audiobook, which is currently available in the romance package. Happy Reading or listening, whichever you prefer.

Friendship...college years

When the only one giving your life approval is the one forbidden, the best you can hope for is friendship.
Faced with the obstacle of parental approval these young lovers learn how to grow without the support of his parents while relying on the love they share. Blending two different worlds with trust and friendship. College romance between the good girl and the bad boy.
When you meet your future far sooner than your ready for, you halt the process and beg for friendship instead. When life alters the course of your perfectly planned life throwing obstacles in the way you fight for it.

Narrator:
Solo performance by Andi Arndt. Andy is an excellent performer and I get why so many authors choose her. Yet she doesn’t have that male timber I desired. I would have loved to hear a male narrator perform the voice of Christian. I knew when purchasing this that Andi was the only narrator I just hoped she would have tried to change her tone to accommodate a male timber. As it stood I felt like Elizabeth’s point of view was strongest.

This was not performed word perfectly. In fact, Andi improvised in certain areas making it difficult to follow along with my ebook. I’m sure when this was written no thought went into having an audio companion. However, her ability to improvise improved the performance rather than hinder it.

Overall:
This had alternating points of view. I didn’t feel it was necessary to switch points of view. With using only one narrator this could have easily been a one point of view book.

This book was a short and quick read. Just when the reader becomes invested in their story it ends with a cliffhanger. Basically a few months of friendship is developed with an epilogue summarizing the last four years.

If I Were 18<br />

Love the author and Andi Arndt, narrator . But I had no idea this was a book better suited for high school or YA.

Redemption

1st off, I'm a huge A.L. Jackson fan... recently met her in person. So saying that I hated one of her books makes me sad. LOST to YOU was a bit of redemption for the first book in this regret series. HATED it so much, I almost did not read LOST to YOU, but it was already in my library so thought I might as well. Although short, it was much better and kinda tied the loose ends of the first book together. Made me feel slightly better about the relationships of these two. I did not realize it was a prequel to the story. I'm happy I decided to read it, but will not be reading any others in this series. Too much regret for me... Good thing I started my love of Jackson books with "bleeding rock stars". Her writing style has climbed to the top. And her characters have much more substance.

Emotional

A very good start to the Regret series of books. I fell in love with both characters and felt their love for each other.

The summaries spoiled it for me

Knowing the outline of the series beforehand, I kept growling at the stupid behavior of these two kids. But I have to look back on myself at 20 and remember how much of a ignoramus I was then too and try to be charitable.

I’m totally in love with Andi Arndt’s voice.

Too short but just right story of love

If I had to find a criticism for this book, it would be that it is too short. I needed more, at east an epilogue, although I believe there are others in this series perhaps. Ms Arndt narrated beautifully, handling both parts quite well. The storyline, while not cutesy nor wildly original, handily told the age-old tale of love-emotion-and-leave-em playbook type falling hard for "the one," when he finally allows himself to let love in. And how Christian humbles himself to Elizabeth was done remarkably well by author and narrator.

Beautiful story of young love

Christian and Elizabeth's story was gorgeous. Reading them slowly fall in love with each other, even though they tried not to. Another beautiful story by Al Jackson! And of course amazingly narrated by Andi Arndt.
