Release Day Blitz & Review....Lucas by Jay McLean


Blog Tour & Review

Title: Lucas – A Preston Brothers Novel

Author: Jay McLean

Release Day: November 1, 2016





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.


☆☆☆☆ Five Stars

An emotional rollercoaster, friends to lovers to ? romance. I swear this book made me feel like I was losing my mind. I've never changed my mind so much about characters in a book. 

Eleven year old Lois meets her new neighbour Luke when her and her dad move for his new job. An instant connection forms between them and they spend the next few years been the bestest of best friends. Together through every high and low, nothing will come between them and they're each other's support system. With both of them having a massive crush on the other but both been adamant that the other doesn't feel the same, this story is full of emotional moments, regrets and mistakes. 

I gave myself whiplash reading this. 
I loved Luke, I loved Lois. I hated Luke and loved Lois. I hated Luke. I hated Lois. I hated Cooper. I wanted to like him but just couldn't. I wanted to slap some sense into Luke. I wanted to physically throw my fucking kindle at Lois' face and slap some sense into her (I was in a violent kinda mood *shrugs*). 

I've read a few books by Jay McLean and every one has got my blood pumping, but never has one had me so up and down like this one. I actually had to take a timeout because I was driving myself mad shouting at my kindle. 

Even though this is Lois and Luke's story, there are some fantastic characters been introduced in this book. Lois' dad and his girlfriend,
Luke's brothers and dad, and Coopers mum Vivian (who I'm so desperately hoping gets her own story) are all really likeable and add so much more to this story. 

A book that will make you feel, it'll make you laugh and it will, without a doubt, make you fall completely in love with the characters.
