I’ve had those kinds of dreams since I was a kid. Each one of a beautiful girl, who is my best friend. We grow up together on a sunny island surrounded by water that’s as blue as her eyes. We share all our hopes and fears until we realize we belong to each other in every way one person claims another. She is my own personal serenity. Sweet story, eh?
Well, forget about it.
The cold, harsh reality is that I’m a twenty-year-old, Manhattan bred, manwhore, who uses his fists to solve his problems. The only comfort I find is inside a bottle… and the dreams. But the dreams are my illness, not my cure. Just when things look the darkest, the sun slaps me square in the jaw. I spot a picture of a scenic island surrounded by the bluest water – my island.
If the island exists then so must the girl, right?
So I’m headed to Serenity, Texas to find my girl and make some sense out of the chaos that is my life. Feel free to tag along, but this journey comes with a steep warning — dreams can turn into nightmares in the blink of an eye.
My name is Jason Flynn and this is our story.
Title: Lost Years
Author: MK Schiller
Published: September 16, 2019
Publisher: Entangled Publishing – Embrace
My Rating: 4.5 stars
In five years I’ve only done a review like this one perhaps once, maybe twice. I wish every reader who is caught up in that Cover Description of LOST YEARS would look no further, just go on instinct and purchase the book. I firmly believe if a reader goes around reading reviews they will be aware of things that should come naturally within the storytelling. That’s my opinion and I’m sticking with it.
LOST YEARS is breathtaking in telling a story of love in such a way that you may begin to believe in fate, in soul mates, in possibilities that you never would have considered before. There are plot twists where you think you’re going in one direction only to take a sharp turn in another. It’s one of those stories that when finished you’ll be tempted to do a re-read immediately with your new-found knowledge so you can see what you may have missed earlier.
I was captivated by Jason and Scarlett’s romance – and I strongly believe you will be, too. This is a story to take a chance on, I do not believe you’d be disappointed should you take that chance and pick up LOST YEARS and discover this love story all on your own.
*I received an e-ARC of this novel from the publisher via NetGalley. That does not change what I think of this story. It is my choice to leave a review giving my personal opinion about this book.*
