Product Description


There are three reasons tequila is my new favorite drink.
• One: my ex-boyfriend hates it.
• Two: downing a shot looks way sexier than sipping my usual soda.
• Three: it might give me the courage to do something my ex-boyfriend would hate even more than tequila—getting myself a rebound

The night I swap my usual soda with tequila, I meet James Cohen. The encounter is breathtaking. Electrifying. And best not repeated. James is a rich entrepreneur. He likes risks and adrenaline and is used to living the high life. He’s everything I’m not.

But opposites attract. Some say opposites destroy each other. Some say opposites are perfect for each other.
I don’t know what will James and I do to each other, but I can’t stay away from him. Even though I should.

*This read is recommended for 18+ due to romance and sex and mature themes.The book was re-published with content changes on June 18th 2015.*

Lost In Us is another fantastic new adult romance. With hidden secrets, betrayal and different societies, can this unlikely duo get it together to overcome the most trying time of their lives? Layla Hagen has a wonderful prose and her characters are in need of our attention. They had troubled sad pasts that keep them from moving on and hopefully together they will forgive themselves. The growth of both main characters is inspiring, coming out of their comfort zones to overcome their fears. If only we could all do that!

Serena McLewis moved to America to live with her Mother’s best friend’s family. She needed an escape and this was a fantastic opportunity for her. Growing up away from her parents was hard, but trying to move on from tragedy was harder. Now in college and has almost graduated at the top of her class, Serena is looking forward to becoming a successful investment banker.

Serena’s long-time boyfriend, Michael decides life is short and takes off with another woman backpacking. Serena’s best friend, Jess is determined that she just needs a rebound and drags her out to a bar. Scanning the patrons, she locks onto James Cohen.

James is the golden boy of Stanford, with not only looks, but brains. He comes from a wealthy family and has created his own successful business. James is known for his womanising ways and his very handsome good looks. Serena doesn’t make contact, but James introduces himself to her and she agrees to see him again.

A driver comes to collect her and take to a surprise location. Once she arrives, Serena is taken to be dressed appropriately for the party. Dancing with James, he tells her that he doesn’t do commitment, but after a discussion they end up in a store room.

2.0 out of 5 stars Tedious 23 February 2014

Damn me and my inability to put down a book and throw it in the DNF pile!

I found both Serena and James insufferable. Their constant childish drama just grated on my nerves after awhile. Two things saved it from being a one star. First, there were very few typos or grammar problems. Second, I liked the part where Serena and James released the balloons, I found that very sweet.

James is a 28 year old entrepreneur. He's hot! He's reckless! He's rich! He's a manwhore! He's completely anti-commitment! He's........Zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz. Sorry, I'm already bored. This same character has appeared in many, many books, and nothing about James makes him stand out.

Serena has never recovered from her sister's death years before. She's about to graduate from Stanford, majoring in economics and computers, and is one of the top students in her class. Which is strange, considering she has the maturity of a 12 year old.

Serena and James meet, instant lust happens, and they go on about two dates and have a bunch of sex. But then Serena goes to James' apartment to bring him coffee and she finds him with another girl. A manwhore and commitment-phobe isn't being faithful? Surely you jest! And thus begins the annoying back and forth between them. They break up! They have sex! He can't love her, but can't live without her! She runs away again!

The problem here is that I cannot possibly get emotionally involved with these people who haven't even spent a full week dating each other! Three dates does not make a relationship. I never saw any connection between the two other than sex and the fact that someone close to them has died. There were red flags everywhere. He has major anger problems and she runs every time someone looks at her sideways. The best thing they could have done was run far away from each other. By the time the book ended, they have known each other about six weeks, and I bet they have spent less than six days in each other's company.

There are more books in this series about the secondary characters, but if they are as annoying as Serena and James, I'll be passing.

2.0 out of 5 stars's time to say this 6 April 2014
By Amazon Customer - Published on

30%. That's where I decided to stop and give this review. Spoilers ahead...but since I only made it like a quarter through who cares, right? So here it is. I can't decide if I ruined reading for myself or if there literally isn't another formula for a good or, dare I say, great romance book. To be fair in the case of this book, I did read the synopsis so I was aware this was another hurt/broken woman meets rich serial dater. I mean I knew going in chances were rough of finding a good story simply because this is what most authors are feeding us now. So here's what I know so far: Serena meets James at a bar. She had the usual ex-boyfriend who made her not trust again....yeah. This is THAT storyline. So yada yada yada James and Serena have insta attraction and have sex. She, being the weak ass heroine she is, decides that she is drawn to him and he of course must feel exactly the same. I mean, she could see it in his eyes you know. He doesn't call her so she moans and bitches and despairs on for a little while until she calls him. They go on the surprise date of his choice, which was...skydiving?!? Surprise skydiving. She overhears his friends dogging her out like she's another of his ho's but whatever, they go do that and then it became even dumber. The chocolate factory visit or whatever that was. I skipped through some of that. Then, since obviously I hadn't had enough punishment, I kept going. Well by this point she's in love. After maybe 2 dates? And after he pretty much tells her he's a no commitment guy. But I'm sure since she has this super power of being able to read his true feelings in his eyes, that she won't get hurt, right? All of these heroines have this ability. So she brings him coffee one fine morning and whoopsie!!! He's had a lady friend stay over and yes he banged her silly I'm sure.And after their magical, mystical carpet ride date of airplanes and Willy Wonka, how could he!?!? They are soul mates, right? Then we have the storm off on Serena's part...the explanation of "he's been hurt so bad in the past that this is all he can do cause he can't feel or part of him died" bulls***...which was a girl in high school dying and him being whatever, broken I guess. I'm surprised I read this at all because I did so much eye rolling at the total lack of creativity in this book. After Serena crumbles and withers away from the earth shattering and life altering realization that James is a d-bag, I put the kindle down. I can't read anymore sentences describe how she was hurdling into the abyss of despair or how she can't bear to hear this or that because it reminds her of him and she just further dies inside and is barely holding onto sanity. By the way, I would punch my friend in the face if she was ever as stupid and annoying as Serena. And while I'm sure they eventually get over their fears and decide to be psychotic together forever, I'll just have to pass on reading anymore. Think I'll take up another hobby and leave romance books alone for a while.

This book is like being on a hamster wheel....together, apart, together, apart. The zillionaire, wounded guy meets the scared, wounded girl. Blah. It's been done again and again and again. Skip this one. Unless you're a hamster. ;)

“Of course it is dangerous. But it’s also thrilling.” He presses the elevator button, and the doors open immediately. “It makes me feel like I live life at its fullest every single moment. And what’s the point, if you don’t live life at its fullest? There is beauty in risk, Serena. I can show you that.”

“I can’t wait,” I say, just before the elevator doors close, leaving me alone in the empty room.

Minor spoilers alert!!!

That quoted excerpt sums up college senior Serena McLewis and young entrepreneur James Cohen’s romantic dynamic pretty well.

POV: Serena’s except for the James’s POV in the Epilogue

What I liked about it?
Pretty much everything – the premise of two characters, damaged at an early age, finding each other and healing each other in a complimentary way, check; the immediate chemistry, double check; the timeframe (more than a couple of weeks), triple check!

What bugged me about Serena and James’s love story?
Their back-and-forth changing attitudes about what they wanted from each other. But that vacillating behavior is entirely normal for most twenty-something year old adults, so this was only a minor irritant. The typos here and there, particularly in James’s POV epilogue chapter, were also a little distracting, but hopefully they will be updated in the future.

I had a lot of favorite moments – the masquerade party, the penthouse weekend, the chocolate factory tour, and many smaller reflective moments that Serena had about grief, guilt and how her attraction to James was changing her for the better.

One standout moment for me:
“You deserve someone better. You deserve someone perfect.”

“I want you.”

You are perfect for me, is what I can’t say out loud. Because nothing but another broken soul could be perfect for me.

“You do?” he asks under his breath. “After everything I just told you?”

“Yes,” I whisper and without giving him any notice, I press my lips to his. For one frozen second I just stand like that, terrified that he will step back. Or push me away. But he doesn’t. He pegs one hand at the back of my head, the other one around my waist, taking over the kiss. My mind, my heart. Taking all of me over. Our bodies are pressed against each other in a tender passion, searching for gratification in every touch, every breath. Until we run out of breath. Literally.’

I love the feeling of being immersed in a love story even without dual POVs. It was a great way to spend my Saturday and part of my Sunday morning.

I’ve now read Caught in Us (Lost #3) and Lost (Lost #0.5), so up next for me soon is book 2, Found in Us. It tells Patrick and Jessica’s how I love to hate you turned love story , and I suspect it’s going to be another winner of a read for me.

We meet Serena p, a senior at Stanford, nursing a broken heart as her boyfriend of 6 years has decided to leave her. She's intent on finding a new man to distract her but ends up getting the attention of James. James graduated from Stanford a couple years before and has dine amazing,y well for himself in Silicon Valley. Serena feels way out of his league sad James is convinced that they could be good together.
There were parts of this book, that made me upset. They were both do wishy-washy in their feelings. One chapter they love each other, the next they need to take a break. It was hard to know who to root for because, at times, it seemed the correct answer was that they should be on their own!
Nonetheless, the book rights itself and I began to enjoy the characters again. I'm on the fence about reading book 2, although I am interested in knowing what's up with Jessica and Parker.
