Lucas {Preston Brothers #1} by Jay McLean – Book Review

Lucas (Preston Brothers, #1)Lucas by Jay McLean
My rating: 5 of 5 stars
➳Cries, laughter, hatred, and angst… All the feelings and actions Jay McLean makes you feel when you read Lucas’ and Laney’s story…

➳After reading the synopsis you are instantly swoon over if you are a huge fan of Jay’s or simply like dramatic, love at first sight type of stories. Jay found a way to mix those two together and bring an excitement out of me with tears and heartbreak. Lois, also known as Laney is new to town when she meets her dad’s boss and the rest of the Preston family. She is instantly drawn to Lucas, the oldest brother of all five Preston boys (Lucy being the oldest… remember her from More Than Enough?)

➳Lucas and Laney are so sweet those first fee years of their friendship when they were just kids. But even at such a small age Lucas was a romantic. He couldnt express his love towards Laney at such an age cause he would believe he wasn’t cool enough. But internally he knew that his love for her is stronger than any other;

➳”And so without meaning to, without wanting to, I started to fall in like with a girl who would become my best friend.
My confidant.
My courage…
… A girl who would pater crush my heart and destroy me.”

➳Something that I found rather fascinating is what Jay brought to mind about opposite gender friendships that evolve to wanting to be more than friends, is the fact that Laney and Lucas change their thoughts of simple hugging to wanting more. Touching, smelling, tasting… 😉
All with good intensions of lust and love. Though problems arouse, and Jay did a wonderful job by acquiring those problems with a message against sexual abussive relationships as unfortunately Laney had to go through a period of time…

➳Overall, I enjoyed this nice and sweet story. It made me cry so hard but it lacked some things that could be altered in other areas. Thank you Jay for letting me read the book as an ARC!
