Publisher's Summary

When two people's lives are spiraling out of control, can coming together pull both of them back up?

Alexis Woods knows who she is - or at least, she thought she did. She's number 17, point guard, MVP, all-star, co-captain of the Lady Raiders NCAA Division I women's basketball team. But there's a darkness growing inside of her, a darkness that started the night her beloved died in her arms, and if she doesn't turn things around soon, the darkness just might swallow her whole.

Graham Griffin knows a thing or two about darkness. That's been her zip code ever since the car accident that took her boyfriend's life - the car accident she caused. When she meets Alex, she sees a reflection of her own sorrow. And she can't help but want to fix it.

A Cathartic Joy

This author is expressive and articulate. In "To Have Loved & Lost", she draws you into a deep relationship-oriented plot line. Her beautiful, flawed, tough and sensitive characters are raw, deep, and happen to be lesbian. It is wonderful and realistic how the characters being lesbian isn't the main focus of the book and being lesbian isn't their identity, but just a piece of who they are. I find it refreshing to discover an author, who can portray real women in real friendships as real people. Thank you, Eliza Andrews! I HIGHLY recommend this author and her first book categorized as LGBT fiction. Hopefully, it will encourage, warm, thrill, and entertain other readers as much as it did me!

Sleeper Hit!

Bought this title because none of my favorite authors had anything new out. I was pleasantly surprised. Good writing, lovely story, well fleshed out characters--a lovely journey.
Narrator was talented and well suited for the story. I was very pleased. I hope to hear much, much more from this author and narrator.

Loved it!

This isn't your normal cheesy romance. It's a true novel based on lesbian characters. I will be getting every book Eliza does from now on. Finally someone that sees how unrepresented some us are. Solid work Eliza you have a new fan!

Great Book!

This is a great love story. I know the LGBT community would love it but I also think straight people would enjoy it. You forget the story is about two women and it becomes a story about how two people finding each other and growing together. It's a simple message that we all have baggage but when you find the right person, it doesn't matter. Loved it!

Buy this if you want to fall asleep fast

What disappointed you about To Have Loved & Lost?

The story is so slow and boring. It is like watching paint dry.

Would you ever listen to anything by Eliza Andrews again?

Doubtful. I think her family gave this book good ratings.

Would you be willing to try another one of Angela Rysk’s performances?

No. Her voice made me sleepy with the story line.

If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from To Have Loved & Lost?

Hard to say. I could not get past the scene with the girls making out in the ally behind the club. What was the point?

Any additional comments?

Wish I could get my credit back.

Interesting Sport Romance, stuff story to tell!

Not your traditional lesbian romance, which is not a bad thing. Usually I first read the book before I buy and listen to the audible version. This allows me to compare the reading to the listening, and whether or not I feel the narration fits the story and characters. I did not do that this time around, because I wanted a long story to listen to while I travelled. I was not disappointed in the story and I do love sport theme novels. I will recommend it to my lesbian sport friends. I am a college women's basketball fan and especially NCAA Division I schools (Go OSU Beavers, Ha!). Hard to determine the exact timeline, beside it being sometime between 2002 and 2017, the epilog I am assuming is sometime into he future.(by the way I don't see them going back to 1:1 free throws rule of the 1970's. I hated as a player and referee). I liked the story line and plan to go back to read the eBook version soon, so I can dissect it better. I plan to read the author's non-lesbian fiction too. I look forward to book 2. It would be nice to see where Alex and Gram are as a follow-up to the epilog, and see all that happened to Alex and Arnica in the 13 year lapse period in the epilog. The narrator did a real good job, I like the voice and attitude. A 13 year epilog is interesting and not sure why the large gap, but I am hoping book 2 ties that all together.

A New Favorite

I love me some lesbian fiction and I am not lesbian. Just a fun opportunity to leave my world and go back into the world of women's basketball. I once lived this life and saw many of my coaches and teammates within this story. I love that we ended with more than one story it too us into the future and I felt satisfied once the book was over. Worth the credit or cost.

literally the best WLW romance I have ever read

And I have read a lot! Not just a formulaic mills and boon type - has a really quite compelling plot and the characters have fully formed backgrounds, realistic strengths and flaws. LOVE LOVE LOVE this book and will throw money at this author for anything else she writes!!
