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.
This book…OMG. I signed up to read this book totally 100% based on two of my book friends LOVE for this author. I thought, now is as good of a time as ever to read this author.
Jay McLean is a beautiful writer. Her words took me to a fictional world filled with angst, love, humor, and warmth. I loved every word and enjoyed these characters and their story. I found it hard to put down and continuously thought about this world when I couldn’t read.
A friends to lovers story filled with so much angst, I found it hard to sleep at night. Lucas and Laney took my emotions on a roller coaster ride, filled with laughter, smiles, and tears. To say this book gave me the feels, is a GROSS understatement. I loved the Preston family, I love the brothers. I love Lucas’s faithfulness and unwavering feelings towards not only his family, but Laney.
While I knew where the story was going over all, I was SHOCKED by the final twist. Holy heart failure. I texted one of my friends and begged her to tell me if this was a HEA…and it is. But it takes some time, and for me, lots of tears.
While I popped my Jay McLean cherry with this book, I can tell you now, I’ve added all her books to my TBR pile, and moved her to the top. Her words give me the feels, and that’s the ultimate reason why I read.
