NOW THAT I'VE TEASED YOU WITH A FEW TEASERS, HERE IS AN EXCERPT FROM LOST....
I see someone who looks vaguely familiar at the bar. She has long black hair and large round eyes. It bugs me that I don’t remember where I saw her before. I have a good memory when it comes to people. Especially women. And especially when they look like her.
It's only when she tucks a strand of hair behind her ear that it hits me where I saw her before, making that same gesture—last year at the award ceremony of that math contest I sponsored. She was the mentor. I grasp my empty glass firmly in my hand, remembering the details of that day. It took me long enough to forget them. I look around for that rat of a boyfriend who was with her then, but he isn't anywhere. The only person she seems to be with is the inebriated blonde sitting next to her at the bar.
I scrutinize her, trying to understand what she’s doing in a place like this. She doesn’t belong here. I’m not exactly sure where she belongs, but it’s not here. At any rate, she didn’t strike me as a particularly outgoing type of girl when she was on that stage. I think I know why she’s here. I've seen this look before in women. The hunched shoulders. The unsure gaze. Yes, she wears the unmistakable signs of someone who's been dumped, and who’s trying, but failing, to forget about it. These signs in women usually make me want to run in the opposite direction.
This time, it has an entirely different effect on me. It makes me want to do what I didn’t have the courage to do last year. Walk up to her. I wanted to make her smile then. The haunted look she had in her eyes back then isn’t as visible now, but it lingers there somewhere. Just like it lingers in me. When it takes over again, I want to make sure she has someone who can put a smile on her beautiful face.
And I still want to taste her lips and those delicious-looking breasts, just like I wanted back then.

And in case you're interested in MY review of LOST:
PERFECT. PERFECT. PERFECT. 5 STARS *****
Lost is the PERFECT prequel to Lost in Us. Just when we thought we couldn't get to know James and Serena more than we already had in Lost In Us, we find out in Lost that we can. We learn the origins of their angst - where it all began. We feel the pain of their loss, and we cry with them all over again. As Layla Hagen has proved in Lost In Us, and again with her prequel Lost, her story telling and writing rivals the best of the New Adult Authors out there - she rates right up there with Colleen Hoover, Jamie McGuire, Cora Carmack, and Abbi Glines. Look for her in the Top 10 New York Times Best Sellers' List, where I've no doubt she'll be in the very near future.
I can't wait for more from Ms. Layla Hagen.
