Corban, obviously, is the best boyfriend in the world. He has all the right things to say at the right time (ermmm most men don’t lol).
The ending sucked big salty balls to be honest. It was so corny, I thought I was standing in a cornfield!
But if you can get past how quickly their relationship develops, then this book isn’t a bad read actually. There’s nowt graphic about it, it’s very Mills and Boon with regards to the sex. You know they are about to have sex, then they wake up in each other’s arms. So for a romantic story old style, this is a great book. If you like your love stories more angsty or down and dirty, then this isn’t the book for you.
It was very well written. Slightly flowery in writing style but all in all a fairly decent sweet tale of love after loss.
Three years ago Melodi’s sister went missing and has been presumed dead. Melodi knows her sister was going to break things off with her abusive boyfriend but the night she went to do it was the last time she saw her alive. Even though blood was found at his place because no body was found, and for lack of evidence, he got let off. After shutting down and just getting on with the day to day things of life her parents finally decide that it is time she continues with her dream she had shared with her sister to live in New York. Little does she know that this is the place were her life will begin again for the better.
Melodi has been given the chance to apply for a personal assistant position at Case Construction. Her interview panel is quite large and the person who is getting the assistant isn’t even there, just on speakerphone even though he doesn’t talk. What she doesn’t know then is that she will meet him later but in a not so professional manner.
Corban is a very easy man to fall for; you can see why Melodi would go head over heels for him. From the first time they meet you can see the instant chemistry flow between them. Well that comes after Melodi’s total embarrassment as she first stumbles up the stairs in a club, luckily Corban is there to catch her. When she gives her full name he instantly recognises her name from the interviews earlier and you can see that he is pleasantly surprised. When he tries to get her to go into his office, as he owns the club, she stops dead in her tracks.Read more ›
The Lost One is book #1 in the Lost Series, this is the first book I have read by this author and I was lucky enough to be gifted a copy to read for Gemma Reads Too Much.
This book is a grower, and it took me a while to get into it but preserve because it will have grown on you by the end.
I struggled with the writing style at the start of this book, it’s incredibly formal and I found it quite stilted. This does relax the further into the book I got and by the end I was into the story and I hardly noticed it.
I didn’t find Melodi very believable, I’m not sure how old she is supposed to be but I just couldn’t relate to her character at all.
Corban is an incredibly nice guy, he wasn’t dark and gritty enough for my taste but I can totally appreciate how sweet he is.
Honestly I found the romance a little convoluted and predictable, I think I’m over the whole insta love plot.
The most interesting this about this book is Abby and her disappearance, Jacobs is a terrifying villain there’s something about really evil about him.
There are parts of this book that are so saccharine sweet I was nauseous, then there was this brilliant creepy quality that emerged towards the last part of the story.
I loved the massive twist at the end although I totally saw it coming; it was still a massive hook and incentive to read the second book.
It took me a long time to get into this book but the mystery and intrigue dragged me in and now I need to know what’s going to happen next.
The Lost One gets 3.5 stars from me.
The premise of this story is a good one and I was intrigued from the start. Melodi has lost her sister, presumed dead, but a body has never been found and the boyfriend who Melodi "knows" did it, has got away scot-free. She moves in an attempt to get on with her life whilst still honouring her sister's memory. Things go a bit deeper when the policeman who approached Melodi and her family after the trial, turns up in her life again. Also the boyfriend turns up and starts threatening Melodi, saying he knows that her sister is still alive. Mixed in with this is Melodi and Corban's love story.
Corban has a lot of fans out there but I'm afraid to say that he did absolutely nothing for me. He knows that Melodi is a virgin but is happy to presume that she is "taking care of things". And when, in fact, he finds out that she isn't, he isn't prepared to do anything himself and instead just gets carried away in the moment.
The story itself was enjoyable and ends on a cliffhanger but for me, the main characters let it down. I couldn't relate to either of them and certainly didn't see the positive aspects that everyone else seems to. A good story for fans of Contemporary Romance but just not one for me.

I found Melodi really immature and her thoughts throughout the book irritating, how she became a PA I just don't see it. Then the end bit in the hospital, it read poorly. Read morePublished 7 months ago by L beaver
