Ness's parents have planned her life, but Ness is determined to control her own future. She turns down her place at medical school and moves to Leeds with her best friend, Abby.

Evan is struggling to escape too and throws himself into the student lifestyle to hide from the past following him. In Ness, Evan finds somebody who shares the need to walk away from what people expect him to be.

Another beautiful story by Lisa Swallow
Because of Lucy is a beautiful love story between Evan, a young and seemingly carefree guy who's living the college lifestyle and Vanessa (Ness) who's uptight and trying to escape her parents control by so not doing the college thing. Both are trying to run away from their past and its expectations. In doing so they find refuge in each other. As their romance blossoms there is the underlying question of 'who is Lucy?'
This novel is beautifully written and handles the question of 'who is Lucy' extremely well. It will keep you guessing for a good part of the novel but that is the intrigue of this story. I loved Evan and Ness and enjoyed watching their romance blossom and their struggle to find who they are! Again this is another 5 star read from Lisa.

I read this super-fast! Couldn't put it down. It was a smart, sexy and touching romance. The question of 'who is Lucy?' kept me guessing for a good part of the book! This turned out to be a gorgeous romance between developed characters, with the realism and sexiness of all this author's books. I particularly loved how the prickliness of Ness starts to soften, and the smooth hottie Evan has to actually work for something for a change. Definitely recommended for lovers of a well-written contemporary romance.

A sweet, sexy story about pasts converging with the present, but the future is still wide open because both Evan and Vanessa have their lives before them and plenty of choices (and mistakes) they can make.

I enjoyed this one, particularly as it brought to life student life in the UK. And then bought the sequel and devoured that, too...

Generally I don't read anything without an element of fantasy or paranormal, but I loved this book. The characters were so likable and the plot moved along at a perfect pace. A story about life, what it means to be human, and the power of love. Can't wait to read the sequel!
