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 Boundless Stars
Lucas, is our introduction to the Preston boys. And if this is any indication of what this series is going to be like. I can’t wait for the next one.
McLean really has a way of telling a story. Really getting the reader involved with these characters. I love the Preston’s! they are genuinely good people. Who love and care for those they consider family.
This story isn’t without their saddest moments and their happiest. Lucas and Lois aka Laney, have been best friends since they were kids. They’ve honestly, loved each other the moment their eyes met. But they were kids, and you know how kids are. Growing up together, they really knew each other. But there are some things, that are left unsaid.
“.. She’s too much. She’s everything.”
I was only 12% in and I knew i would love this story with my whole heart. It pulled at me emotionally, to where I was laughing and crying within minutes. Only, so many stories do that. Those are the stories I’m grateful for. But if you do jump into this story. I would recommend going back to the More Than Series, really understanding where it all came from.
“..Love doesn’t die just become one heart stops beating. When you love someone. you have the same heartbeat and it’s still there. Just not as strong.”
This really was perfect to me, for many reasons. I think once you jump into this, you’ll understand. Overall, I fell deeply for this story. Lucas and Laney’s story. Of two people who ultimately knew they were made for each other. Five plus plus plus Boundless Stars all the way.
