Review - Lucas by Jay McLean


Blog Tour & Review
Title: Lucas – A Preston Brothers Novel
Author: Jay McLean
Release Day: November 1, 2016



In a sprint, every millisecond counts.
When you're waiting for love, those milliseconds can feel like eons.
High school senior Lucas Preston has it all: star of the track team, a scholarship waiting for him, an apartment to himself and a revolving door of girlfriends. He also has an older sister, five younger brothers and a father who relies on him to make sure those brothers don't kill each other.
His saving grace? Lois "Laney" Sanders, a girl he started to fall in like with when he was just eleven.
A girl who became his best friend, his confidant, his courage.
It took only sixteen clicks and eight seconds for Lucas to realize that his like for Laney had turned into love.
Eight life-changing seconds.
It's also the exact length of time it took to lose her.



My 5 Star Review

JAY FREAKING MCLEAN! OMG! I loved this book so freaking hard! I legit could barely even handle it. I wanted to jump into book world and leave it all behind for Lucas. I loved Lucas, I loved Lane and I freaking loved the Prestons!

This so much more than a friends to lovers story, because Lois and Lucas are so much more than friends. These two met when the were kids and experienced all of their lives' biggest and smallest moments together. When Lucas’s mom died Lois was there, she cried with him, her heart broke with him and her love helped heal him. Now it’s years later and things are starting to change between them. Lois and Lucas are at a point where they either move on together or risk their friendship being forever changed. 

The story is told from dual points of view and includes flashbacks so you can see every thought and important moments throughout their lives. You can see where their friendship has meant the absolute world to each of them and you can see as they get older how their feelings really begin to develop and become more. The most heartbreaking part, you can see how these two teenagers cannot adequately understand, accept and figure out how to make the next step. 

I read this books weeks ago and my heart is breaking and swooning all over again at remembering this story. This is a story of epic love and while I love funny books, nothing in the entire world is better than an epic love. I live for books about epic love and Lucas and Lois are the perfect example of a love that transcends time and never diminishes. A love that can heal, a love that can overcome anything, a love the changes you forever. 

This book is perfection to me. It’s everything I want in a book and more. It’s funny, it’s sexy, it has so much freaking heart, and just enough angst to keep me sweating a little, but not too much! If you have never read a Jay McLean book, you are crazy and need to fix that immediately because this lady kills it with every book! There a few authors with every release I think this is my new favorite, Jay is one of those authors and Lucas is one of those reads!
