Blog Tour for Lost in Us by Layla Hagen

Lost in Us by Layla Hagen
Publication date: February 17th 2014
Genres: Contemporary, New Adult, Romance

Serena has learned to live with her past, locking her secrets and nightmares deep inside her. But when her boyfriend of six years abruptly leaves her, she’s catapulted back into pain, nursing a broken heart. When indulging in mountains of chocolate doesn’t work, Serena decides the best way to deal with her shattered heart is to indulge in something else. A rebound . . .

The night she swaps her usual Sprite for tequila, she meets James. The encounter is breathtaking.
And best not repeated.

James is a successful entrepreneur in Silicon Valley. A man who has amassed a fortune by taking risks. A man who has shunned commitment completely, and still does. He’s the exact opposite of Serena. But sometimes opposites attract. Sometimes they give in to burning passion. Sometimes opposites are perfect for each other.

James is everything her damaged soul could want. His kisses are intoxicating, his touch out of this world. He makes her forget. He grants her peace from her pain. But as they grow closer, Serena discovers she isn’t the only one with a past. James carries the scars of a past much darker than hers. One that has left him damaged, hurt, and wary of love. A past that gives him the power to shatter her.

Now James and Serena must find a way to mend one another. Or risk losing each other forever.

Review by Gia:
I loved reading Lost in Us.  If you haven't read the prequel novella Lost, I suggest you read it first.  You don't need it to read Lost in You but it helps with character development.   After reading Lost I knew had had to read Lost in Us.  In Lost we meet James and Serena and learn a little about their pasts.
Lost in Us is James and Serena's story.  It's starts with Serena meeting James while out drinking a bar.  Both James and Serena have pasts that have damaged them.. They seem to be their own worst enemies when it comes to their relationship.  I first I wasn't a big fan of James, but as I read on James won me over.  
I loved James' friend Parker.  He had some great insightful stuff to say to Serena towards the end of the book.  I can't wait to read, Found In Us, Parker and Jessica's story.
Lost in Us is a great story and an easy book to pick up and get lost in.
