Lucas (Preston Brothers #1)

In a sprint, every millisecond counts. When youre 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 dont 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. Its also the exact length of time it took to lose her....

    SIXTEEN CLICKS.

    Eight seconds.

    That’s how long it took me to realize I’d been in love with her for four years.

    Eight, life-changing seconds.

    It’s also the exact length of time it took to lose her.

    So, before I review this book I have to admit I was completely at fault. See, for some reason, maybe the First name being the title, I mistakenly thought this was by Jay Crownover...think RULE, which I absolutely loved. I realize it's by Jay McLean, but, for me the distinction is paramount. Why? I haven't had much luck with JM's More Than series. I loved the first book, liked the second a lot, and reluctantly liked the third. Then I just stopped, noticing common themes with this author that aggr ...more

    There's a certain magic to Jay McLean's story telling that leaves you little choice but to surrender and just lose yourself within the pages of whatever world she's created. And when you do, you'll likely be thinking about her books for days, months, or even years after you've finished one. Lucas is no different.

    We meet Lucas in the More Than series as Lucy's brother. That series is a huge favourite of mine, so if you haven't read it then of course I highly recommend that you do. Lucas can be r

    FOUR LANEY STARS.

    "She’s too much. She’s everything."



    Jay McLean loves to take her readers on a nail biting adventure full of romance, angst and pure, undiluted coming of age drama. Whenever I start this authors books I always have huge expectations, mainly because I'm fully aware of the talent and time that gets thrown into the pages. 'Lucas' was one of those books that I couldn't wait to get my hands on, the anticipation was half of the enjoyment and although it didn't knock me off my perch co

    Overall I found the book to be ok. Both characters were likable I just wish they could have gotten their crap together sooner and that Laney would have opened up quicker. Granted, I understand her reasons and I can't say that I would do much different in her situation.

    It was nice to finally read about a Hero who was celibate since being with the heroine even though they weren't together. I also don't blame Laney for moving on with Cooper. She waiting a long time for Lucas and just when she thoug

    When was the last time you read a book that made you forget the time? Something that pulled you in so badly, you never noticed you've been reading the entire day?

    It was last Sunday for me and that's when I read Jay Mclean's LUCAS. And just like those days I read Kick Push and Coast, starting a JMac was easy, letting her books go... that's hard. Very hard. And another problem is, I badly need to take a little break after reading this book, because I'm feeling like whatever I pick up would be sec

    Wow, this book started with a BOOM!!!

    We met Lucas Preston, bloody and all sitting at a hospital, remembering how he met Lois “Laney” Sanders. From there on the story enfolds in past and present segments, beautiful memories about him, Laney, and his family. They grew up together, spent more time together than he did with his siblings. But never crossed into the relationship zone. Apparently, he felt he wasn't good enough for her, and she thought he didn't want her as a girlfriend.

    *This review contains mild spoilers*

    I was pretty excited for this novel. I really enjoyed the More Than series, and Lucy & Cam's book was by far my favorite, so I was ready for this spin-off featuring Lucy's brothers. Unfortunately this one just didn't work for me the way the others have. The beginning was awesome! I got all the feels that I expect when reading a Jay McLean story. My heart literally aches when I read her words. She is a sensational writer and even though I didn't love the

    "I wouldn’t be able to crawl into her bed whenever I felt the need to be close to her, but I'm positive she'd fill those nights with date after date, guy after guy. All of them not me. That thought alone has my stomach doing somersaults and my heart beating wildly. I almost thump at my chest, mad and frustrated with myself, because I have one year. Just one year to make her want me the way I want her."
    The final straw for her is when they finally sleep together and he's ready to commit. (view spoiler) And that I understood. But he could've called Laney and told her, instead of just showing up the next day and leaving her to her own assumptions. There were a lot of things he could have done differently. Ultimately, Laney was just tired of being second-best. He dated and had sex with other women before this. I didn't love it, but during this time, he's a fifteen-seventeen year old guy, they're known for being stupid. He's young, so I could kinda, sorta get it. It wasn't so much about safety concerns, and I actually got pretty excited because I thought this would be a story about both of them growing up and realizing her worth. Because she put up with far more than she should have.

    Laney goes on to have a serious boyfriend, Cooper, who she claimed to really love and she never gave an indication of pining after Lucas. And even though it seemed fast, I was fine with it because I thought she'd come to see how she deserves to be treated, but in the end, I didn't really understand the relationship. It just seemed like something to move the story forward. It plays a big, very spoilery, part in the end. And there's a dynamic to her relationship with Cooper that makes it hard to compare to Lucas, but I just didn't see the growth from her that I was expecting.



    But the main reason for my confusion was Lucas. When he was younger, he dated and had sex with other people, talked to Laney about these things (and she waited for him), forgot about her in favor of doing other things, and got another girl's number in front of her on a "not" double date with her, Lucy, and Cameron (his sister and her boyfriend). And like I said, it was less a safety issue and more a case of confusion. Because he's never mean about it. I just don't understand... how does the guy who says...
    "My home doesn't feel like home unless you're there."
    "I've loved you forever, Laney."
    "Especially when it's connected to a girl you've been in love with before you had a grasp on what love was."
    "You her boyfriend or something?"

    "I should be so lucky."
    - Lucas
    "God, Laney, you looked so beautiful. You literally stole my breath."- Lucas talking about their "non" date years later
    "Our eyes locked and I think, in a way, they've never left. It's been years, Laney, and I've never stopped looking at you, looking to you, and I don't want to stop. Not now. Not ever. And I need to see your eyes and I need to hear your laugh and I need you. I need to love you. And I need to love you right."
    ... is okay having random hookups with other girls? At one point he says he has "to make her want [him] the way [he] want[s] her." << He has another girlfriend, of six months, when he says this. How does that lend itself to making her think you want to be with her?



    And then there's this thought...
    "Rachelle was the head cheerleader, the hottest girl in school (excluding Laney, of course) and she was interested in me!"
    Why would he care if he loved Laney? It would be one thing if he claimed to never realize how he felt, if his love didn't develop until they were seventeen. But I don't understand claiming to love her the whole time and doing this. It makes no sense to me (like I've said fifty times already lol). He said he just didn't know how she felt, but how would dating others help his cause? Again, I know he's still a teenager and that this could conceivably happen, but it just never clicked for me and made sense.

    And I really hated how he got pissy about the few dates she went on. I could understand him stewing internally, but to actually say it out loud to her when she had to put up with his relationships for so long? Yeah, not a fan of that...

    I'm not trying to make Lucas sound like an asshole, I don't think he was. He was incredibly sweet at times. Yes, he was young, and he did learn to not take Laney for granted. But he made too many references to the past and about how he loved her so much, even while being with others. It just felt like he was two different people in regards to that, and not in the cohesive way where he developed from point A to point B. Many readers loved Lucas and this book, this just confused me way too much.

    And the "twist" at the end was too much for the last 20% of the book. There was so much to that and I think it should have more time to develop. Honestly, I would have preferred that to have been left out and the things I mentioned above to be more built upon.

    Even though I didn't love this, I did enjoy most of it, and I think if you're a fan of this author and the punch-to-the-gut feels, I'd still recommend giving it a shot! ;) The writing was beautiful and I highlighted a bunch...
    "Love hard, love fierce, but love right."
    "Good is the enemy of great."
    "She laughs and this time, reality doesn’t shift. Doesn’t change. Because reality is perfect. She’s perfect."
    "I'm beyond great, Lucas. I'm in love."
    "We're not lame. We're just in love."
    "Love doesn't die just because one heart stops beating. When you love someone, you have the same heartbeat and it's still there, just not as strong. So no. There's no loved. Dad still loves her."
    "But gossip is like dust, floating in the air, temporarily marring the things it lands on. It's not forever. It's not us."
    I still love Jay McLean and can't wait for the rest of the series. Lachlan especially... God, that kid killed me, I freaking LOVE him. It feels weird to want his book because he's like seven years old in this one, but I really can't wait :))



    I think I laid out a lot of the safety issues, but if you have other questions, PM me :) I definitely wouldn't recommend it for those of you who hate OM/OW drama and miscommunication, that's primarily what this book is about.
