This is one of those books that I was so excited to read when I read the synopsis and I had huge expectations for. The Lost One did not let me down in any way shape or form. This read starts off with an intensity that does not let go throughout the entire book. Melodi and Abby are not only twins, they are best friends with bright sunny futures ahead of them. But when Abby dies, Melodi’s entire world is thrown into disarray. After struggling to accept her sister’s death, Melodi decides to move to NYC and find herself again. One night while at a bar, Melodi meets a very sexy stranger while she is tumbling down the stairs. Despite the awkward situation, the two share an instantaneous chemistry. Melodi is smitten but also wary, due to her sister’s death. She’ll quickly find out that the handsome man is actually her new boss, Corban. Corban does not believe in dating employees and Melodi is still dealing with her past. But there is something about Melodi that slowly makes Corban wear down her defenses. Just when the pair decide to solidify their relationship, the past comes calling. And as we all know, it’s never good when old ghosts show up. I fell in love with both Melodi and Corban. Melodi is so strong. She goes from the ultimate low to finding herself and love. Throughout it all, the reader gets to see her character grow and really come into herself and the person that she was meant to be. And then there is Corban. Hot, sexy, alpha Corban. This man will end up being one of my all time favorite book boyfriends. Corban is the man to piece Melodi’s broken heart back together again. This book is full of suspense, romance, drama and has some sexy thrown in. I ran the whole gamete of emotions while reading Melodi and Corbin’s story. I adored this story because you can actually feel these characters fall in love. I can’t wait for the second chapter in Melodi and Corban’s story.

A huge playful smile swipes across his face, which sets my chest racing.
“I’m sure you will be fine. Anyway, Melodi, I would love to stay and get to
know you a little better, but unfortunately, I have a meeting in about twenty
minutes, which I probably shouldn’t be late for.” He reaches his hand out like
he is about to shake my hand. You’re
seriously not just going to shake my hand!
Surprising me for the second time, he takes my hand, placing a gentle
kiss across my knuckles, and then pulls me close, pressing his lips to mine. I
taste him; boy, he tastes good. It’s nothing like our kiss the other night.
This is more…more sensual.
Savouring the moment, until his cologne drifting around me drives me
crazy, igniting a raging fire within me. My arms wrap around his neck, pulling
him closer to me. Our kiss becomes more heated.
I remember we are standing in the middle of the footpath when a car goes
past blasting its horn. I’m not sure if it’s at us or something else. I slowly
pull away, placing one more gentle kiss to his warm lips. Mine already ache
from the loss. We stay where we are, holding each other, neither of us wanting
