Lucas (Preston Brothers #1) Reviews
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.
Type of Characters and my choices according to pictures :
Lucas or “Clark Kent” as per Kathy his mother
Lois or Laney as per the Preston family
This is such a beautiful story of boy meeting girl, being friends since the day the met at age eleven. How they grew up together, mistakes they ...more
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 ...more
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 ...more
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 ...more
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 ...more
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.
Many years wen ...more
*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 ...more
