Alex and Lila are on the run, desperately trying to stay one step ahead of the Unit, which somehow is managing to track their every move. Whilst Alex is determined to keep Lila safe and her ability secret at any cost, Lila’s only thought is of finding a way back to California so that she can rescue her brother and mother from the military base where they’re being held.

Struggling to control both her growing power and her deepening feelings for Alex, Lila decides the time has finally come to stop running and start fighting. Together with Alex, Demos, and the people she’s come to think of as family, Lila plans not just to save her brother and mother, but to completely destroy the Unit and everything it stands for.

But the plan requires Lila to return alone to California, make friends with the enemy, and to risk losing everything - Alex, her family, and even her life.


BOOK REVIEW by Michelle :


Alex was standing behind me, bare-chested and in jeans, his hands resting lightly on my shoulders. 


Excuse me while I take a moment. This was the third sentence in the book.... giddy up! 
I'm trying to show the vibe of the first chapter

The opening chapter was like something out of the Fast and Furious 5. Holy batman! We were off and running on rooftops over Mexico City in the sweltering heat. I was on those rooftops jumping and running too. Bullets whizzing past me ...errr.... Lila, and Alex as they try to escape from, The Unit. 


See now, you have to work with me people, it's the rooftop action I am talking and the guns . What can I say, it seems funnier in the native tongue of Brazil. The Rock is like one of The Unit guys ......Paul Walker is like Alex and so forth....bahahaaaaa!!



This is supposed to be the 'feel' of the opening chapter.
All explosive and exciting. 
Made me consider doing more cardio in my life!!
My imagination is doing overtime
Big Guns ..check!
Big Boys..check!
The Unit......kinda...check!

Out of one boiling kettle, into the hands and trust of Carlos and his drug den.

Lila and Alex are our main character’s busting their chops to get Jack and Melissa out of The Unit’s clutches with Demos and Key playing ...errr... key parts.

Nate and Suki are uber gorgeous doing their part. Nate is more, out- of-body. I would love a little novella with Suki and Nate’s little adventure to help their crew out. Suki did manage to stop off and get herself some new shoes.


 Girlfriend knows how to work those heels.

Nate and Suki together, ogling Jack and Alex, are rather precious. They are very funny together, feeding off each other’s dialogue.

Lila is coming in to her own, really working her powers, starting to learn control. Plans are being formed for the next death defying scheme, attempting to infiltrate the marine base where Jack and Melissa are being held.



Who can they trust? 

OMG the twists! 

Loved them! 

I personally would have liked more Alex and Lila action. Hunting Lila was very ‘hot’ and smexi..... and that was just the tension. In 'Losing Lila', Sarah teases us with nuddy scenes! Not that I am complaining.
 Visually it did wonders in my head J

Happy Days J

I luuurrrvvved every time Alex knelt down in front of Lila to talk to her....* sigh* , the attention he gave her was dreamy.

Sarah has left me craving more, and I am uber nosey to find out about a couple of the characters and where Sarah will take us with them. It all just got switched up another notch. 

Oh, Demos and Harvey you little devils.

I looovvved the spesh bonus Alex POV at the end of Losing Lila. Alex is just a hunk of lad...* sigh *.

From the opening action scene to the crazy ‘break out’ scene, Sarah will capture your attention, the pages will turn, you will be left gasping, and gripping your book. The twists will come, and Nate and Suki will have you belly laughing. Sarah will have you wanting more nuddy swimming, *wink* and for Lila to hurry up and have a birthday....hehe........ what?


FAVE QUOTES:

'.....What will we do for eye candy now? Were you thinking of Nate at all? Were you thinking of me?'


   'I can't believe you elbowed me out of the way,' Nate yelled from the corner where he was sitting, watching himself on-screen.
   'Nate, they wanted someone pretty in the shot. That's why they interviewed me.'
