Promo Tour, Review & Giveaway!
Lost In Me (Here and Now #1) by Lexi Ryan

Amazon | Barnes and Noble | Goodreads

LOST IN ME is on SALE for just .99 cents the first week of release as a fan appreciation from the author!


LOST IN ME is the first book in the Here and Now series, a spin-off of the New York Times and USA Today bestselling New Hope series. This sexy amnesia love triangle is intended for mature readers.

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.

LOST IN ME is not a standalone novel, as the story continues in Here and Now book two, FALL TO YOU, releasing in June.

MrsNorthman's 5/5 Fangs Review
Since signing up for the cover reveal a few months ago, I have been really looking forward to reading this book.  I was expecting this to be a good one and I wasn't disappointed.  What an AMAZING story!  I couldn't put it down for even a second. 
Hanna wakes up in a hospital room with retrograde amnesia and a gorgeous rock on her finger.  No one is really sure what happened, but she was found at the bottom of a flight of stairs all banged up.  She has no memories from the last 11 months of her life, but she feels like she's living in a dream.  She suddenly has everything she's ever wanted.  She's lost 50 pounds, has her own bakery and is engaged to Max.  She grew up with Max and has been in love with him for as long as she can remember, but she always felt that her twin sister, Lizzy, was more his type.  Hanna never felt skinny enough or pretty enough to go after him.  She's pretty shocked to find him being so loving and attentive with her, because she can't remember being in a relationship, let alone getting engaged.  Can you imagine?
A few nights after being released from the hospital, she wakes up to someone kissing her neck, but it's not Max.  It's a sexy stranger with a hulk tattoo that's found his way into her bed.  She has no memory of who this guy is or why he would even be in her apartment.  When he sees her engagement ring he gets upset and bolts.  Turns out the sexy stranger is famous rocker, Nate Crane.  Hanna doesn't understand what's going on, would she cheat on her dream guy, Max?
Hanna finds out that things aren't always as perfect as they seem.  I really liked Hanna and connected with her character.  I think sometimes it's easy to get down on yourself and feel like you're not enough.  Gotta love a heroine that was able to overcome that and realize she deserves more.
"Every time I say goodbye, I tell myself that's it.  That I'll end it.  Because you deserve that.  But I'm weak and selfish as shit and keep calling you back because I can't get enough of you."
I thought it was so genius how the story unfolded.  As Hanna regains bits of her memory here and there we get a glimpse into her relationships with Max and Nate.  A little bit of how things ended up the way they did, but not the full story.  There are a lot of unanswered questions and a HUGE cliffhanger at the end that has left me dying to read to the second book!  I am TEAM NATE at this point, but I want more of Max's story, even though he's a jerk.  I can't wait to get my hands on Fall To You.
"You're like the sun-completely blind to your own beauty because you are so busy making everyone around you shine.  No matter how far we hide in the shadows, you share your light.  That's how you stole my heart when no one else could find it."

About the Author

Once a college English professor, I now write full time. I live in rural Indiana, where, when I’m not writing, I get to hang out with my husband and two kids–a six-year-old boy and a two-year-old hellion, er, girl. Not surprisingly, reading and writing remain my favorite activities, though both come in bits and pieces these days, not the big hunks of time I enjoyed before I had children. When I’m feeling virtuous, I like to go running (I use that word liberally. I’m really, really slow) or do yoga. Don’t worry, I’m always careful to balance out such activities with a hearty serving of ice cream or a chocolate martini.
