I received a copy of this book for free and leave my review voluntarily.
J.S. Ellis is a thriller author. She has a degree in creative writing, English literature, and digital marketing. She lives in Malta with her fiancé and their kitty fur baby Eloise. When she’s not writing or reading, she’s either cooking, eating cheese and chocolate, or listening to good music and enjoying a glass of wine or two.
“Lost and Found.”
Phoebe lives with her best friend, Adele, while they both attend university. They are opposites in just about every way. Adele is bubbly and light, casual and flirty. Phoebe is organized and controlled. Phoebe doesn’t stand out, and she is rarely someone people take a second glance at. When a tragedy suddenly being Phoebe and Alan, her super-steamy neighbor and crush, together, the last thing she expects is to develop actual feelings for Alan. Especially now. But forever now has two different meanings.
This was fast-paced and intense from the beginning. It’s impossible to put down a book about friendship, secrets, desire, and people. There is a lot of emotion throughout this novel, and the build-up is intense.
The characters are well developed. Though, I found myself unsure about how I felt towards any of them for most of the book. The dynamic way the characters were described and presented was very well thought out and well done.
I read this book in a single sitting. The storyline was quick and twisted. The buildup leaves you thinking one thing, and then something else happens. The twists were very well done and extremely well played.
The big twist was so unexpected and added so much to the plot. This book proves that reading and processing all the details is monumental. This was a stellar start to a series, and I am looking forward to book two.
