As most of you know AL Jackson is one of my favorite authors and Take This Regret is one of my favorite novels. I was beyond excited to find out that AL Jackson had written Lost To You, the prequel novella to Take This Regret. For those of you, like me, who just can’t get enough of Christian and Elizabeth’s story, you will absolutely fall in love with Lost To You, but I will warn you that you will Still.Want.More! Hint, hint Ms. Jackson 😉
I was completely hooked from the second I opened Lost To You, not only because I have fallen in love with these two characters but also because AL Jackson made me feel like I was right there in her story. Lost To You takes us back to where it all began with Christian as a typical 18 year old male university student and Elizabeth living her dream of going to university at Columbia not wanting to complicate her studies (or her life) with a relationship. Starting out as study partners, they both feel a connection, one that is more than friendship, yet they both deny it.
Christian and Elizabeth’s love story is one that will always haunt my thoughts. The love felt between these two characters is real and raw. I felt the connection between them right away, feeling they were kindred souls. I experienced so many emotions while reading Lost To You, even though I know how Christian and Elizabeth’s story ends. I had butterflies in my stomach with every glance or touch and, my heart ached when they were apart. I felt as though I was the one falling in love for the first time.
If you have not yet read Take This Regret I would highly recommend doing so before reading Lost To You. Even though Lost To You is Christian and Elizabeth’s beginning, and we know from Take This Regret what happens in the end, I feel the reader would miss out on how strong their love for one another truly is.
Lost To You is a beautiful and powerful love story, if you are a hopeless romantic like I am, you will not want to miss out on this amazing story. N. 5/5
