Rating: FIVE STARS
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.
I received this book for an honest review from the author. Thank you!
Lucas is the first book in the series Preston Brothers, a More Than This spin-off series by Jay McLean. But you can read Lucas as standalone. Lucas is one of my favorite series and I loved everything about this book. I love the couple Lane and Lucas and their beautiful story.
“They love each other. You said loved. 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.”
Lucas is in high school and he is the oldest of his five brothers and he takes care of his brothers. He is a hero for his little brother Lachlan and he enjoys to care of him. He meets Laney when he was eleven years old and they become best friends. They have a special bond that has been maintained throughout the years.
“Because if it’s only your looks they’re attracted to, then they’re not the one for you, Lo. You can do better. You will do better.”
For Laney, Lucas is everything, her best friend and her love. Lane always loved Lucas as more than a friend but she wasn’t sure of the feelings of Lucas for her so she kept her feelings for herself. Laney was always there for Lucas and her brothers.
Lucas… He loves me, wants me, emotional and physical scars, and all.
Both of them make mistakes in this book but they always found their way to each other and they don’t lose the special bond between them. They through heartbreaking moments in this book but their love for each other help them to heal and move forward.
I’ve loved you forever, Laney.
The story of Laney and Lucas are complex and beautiful. I loved Lucas because he was patient and loving with Laney. Lucas is not just a love story, it’s more, it’s about mistakes, family, friendship, and forgiveness. Lucas by Jay Mclean is one of my favorite books and I recommend everyone to read this book.
We love hard, love fierce, and love right. And we’re learning Luke. Always learning.
