Title: Lost in Me (Here and Now #1)
Author: Lexi Ryan
Genre: Contemporary Romance
Release Date: April 6, 2014
Blurb: 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.

Oh god, where do I start? My heart physically hurts and the tears in my eyes are 100% real. 😭😭
When my friend told me this book featured a rockstar and that it was really good, she neglected to mention that it would tear my freaking heart in half and gut my soul. “I cant remember the end” yeah….right! Casey, 🖕😂.
So, to begin with I hated Lizzie and their mom. I was imagining that Liz and her mom cooked up a plan to push Hanna from the stairs because 1. Liz was major jealous of Hanna and 2. Because the mom wanted to teach Hanna a lesson for something since she’s super annoying and controlling. 🤔 yes, I realised that I let my imagination run wild far too often. 😂
I started to like Liz towards the end of the book even though I thought she stuck her nose in far too much and had an opinion for EVERYTHING. That was annoying. Their mom, well she was something else, many times I screamed at my book for Hanna to tell her to shut the fuck up! She was the only thing I really disliked about this book and how Hanna never stood up to her.
Max, I figured from the beginning that there was something odd about him but I didn’t know what. I even thought that maybe he pushed her down the stairs but after reading on, I realised just how ridiculous that was. I started to like Max far more than I did in the beginning, he was sweet and seemed like he wanted to give her the world. I really softened to him.
Nate, we didn’t get to see much of him but I definitely felt a connection to him right away. I would have loved to have seen more of her memories with him coming back. Hanna saved him and he loved her, he brought out a diffetent person in her, even i could see that just by reading their scenes. Both of the men broke my heart but I’m different way, Nate more so as I had become invested in him.
Hanna was obviously confused and frustrated after waking up with no memory of the last year and I really felt for her. She wanted to know the truth of the last year but the 2 guys in her life weren’t being honest with her and that annoyed me. She needed to understand what had happened and no one wanted to tell her. She came across as weak (not just physically) she never stood up for herself or demanded answers from anyone. I felt like the people around her were suffocating her though, her mom planning the wedding 2 days after getting out of hospital (like that’d the only things she needs to focus on) and her sister trying to force memories from her.
I loved this book more than I though I would. And that last sentence? Well, now I have to dive straight into the next book because everything I thought I knew makes no sense right now.
