Christian Davison came into mine, and I knew I’d never be the same.
To Elizabeth Ayers, New York City had always been a dream. She’s worked her entire young life to make it here.
Groomed to one day take over his father’s law firm, attending Columbia University was Christian Davison’s only option.
Neither wanted anything more until they sat across from each other at a café table after being paired as study partners.
Christian wants her, but Elizabeth knows better than to give into their intense attraction. Yet there is little she can do to stay away.
Lost to You, the prequel to the bestselling romance, Take This Regret. A New Adult novella, recommended for readers 17+. It’s unnecessary to have read Take This Regret to enjoy Lost to You.
Can A.L. Jackson write anything but excellence? Not in my eyes! Somehow, she always finds a way to get my insides twisted into so many emotions that I feel like it is all happening to me. I became quickly absorbed with Take This Regret and have been a huge A.L. Jackson fan ever since. And Lost To You, the prequel to Take this Regret, matched it’s 5 star perfection!
In Lost To You, we get to travel back to the point at which Christian and Elizabeth meet. Both have just started at Columbia University and were paired as study partners. There was an instant attraction for each but Elizabeth can tell that Christian is a love ’em and leave ’em kind of guy and refuses to put herself out there just to be hurt. Feeling different about her than any other girl, Christian is willing to do what it takes to be close to Elizabeth. They quickly form a strong friendship that each relies heavily on.
As time goes by, both Christian and Elizabeth find it hard to keep their relationship at a friendship level. But neither one is willing to risk it all. They have such different pasts, making them very different people. Elizabeth grew up with very little but had tons of love in her home. Meanwhile, Christian has lived a very privileged life but lacked the kind of unconditional love that he needed. His father has always been overbearing, making him feel like he is never good enough and his mother is more like robot than a mother. This life has come together to make Christian a bit on the selfish side.
The alternating perspectives allowed me to become so emotionally invested. And nobody does changing POVs as flawlessly as A.L. Jackson. I fell in love all over again with Christian and Elizabeth. There is something so pure and refreshing about their love, even though it constantly has major obstacles to overcome.
I was a little worried going into this that since it was a prequel and I already know the future story that I would have a hard time fully connecting. Boy, was I wrong! In fact, it was quite the opposite. I think knowing the “rest of the story” only made me connect even more. I loved everything about Lost To You and urge you to read this one, especially if you enjoyed Take This Regret.
Lindsay wants to share the love with a lucky reader. Leave a comment here, and on Sunday night (9pm CST), I’ll randomly pick one commenter who’ll receive the e-book version of both Lost to You AND Take this Regret. GOOD LUCK!
