What did not work.
Too much forced angst. This trilogy should have been a duet. There is nothing in the third book that adds to their story.
ALJ writes angst very well. You know what you are getting with her. However, at times, she has a tendency to just keep it going on and on and on. It became exhaustive. Don't get me wrong. I love angst. Just keep some sense of relatability. There was nothing in the third book that added to their story. It should have ended with this book.
For the love of all things 21st century, lose the virgin heroine. A single mother in her 20's not having a date, a relationship and/or a friend with benefits over a prolonged time period (5+ years this time) is an unhealthy and archaic double standard.
Elizabeth was not written as a likable human being. Every facet of Elizabeth (both inner thoughts and actions) were about Elizabeth, not Christian, and certainly not about her daughter. And he was no charmer before he found them again. At least he was honest and put in a good faith effort to change. Elizabeth is portrayed as immature, histrionic a martyr, and a shrew.
“Elizabeth.” A chill ran down my spine as his voice penetrated my ears, seeping through my body. The sound came like warmth rushing through my veins, leaving a shock of cold as it passed. My head snapped up, meeting his face, his blue eyes intense, emotion pouring from them as he looked from Lizzie to me. It was all I could do to keep from falling to the ground as I felt the world I had built come crashing down around me.
“Christian, no,” I said, snaking around him to give my debit card to the woman. “Elizabeth.” His voice managed to hiss and plead at the same time. “Just let me pay. Please.” I shook my head in stubborn petulance. “I don’t want your money, Christian.” Darkness clouded his expression, and he lowered his voice, inclining his head toward me. “I know, Elizabeth, you never have. You never even asked for what was yours.” Disarmed by the sadness I saw in his eyes, I found myself too shocked to resist any longer. I stepped back and self-consciously tucked my card back into my shorts pocket, terrified at how easily he’d just persuaded me.
I was all excited in the beginning until I became very mad and upset with Christian, forcing Elizabeth to choose like he did, but as time goes on it turned into a great story all the way through to a great ending.
This book was awesome, the characters were perfect and Lizzie is the cutest little thing ever. So five stars for me.
Elizabeth had every right to feel wary & resistant with Christian’s advances. She not only has to protect her heart again but Lizzie’s as well. The uphill battle to regain her trust has only begun for Christian. I like how he never gave up, even when Elizabeth was being stubborn & hard-headed. It was very sweet to see an innocent child willingly open her heart to a man who abandoned her & her mom, and Christian protected & guarded her trust in him. He knows he lost the best thing in his life, and he’s not going to give up until he has his family back.

I wanted to shout at Christian in the first chapter, I just couldn't believe how he acted, poor Elizabeth........I just couldn't put the book down.
This is the second book to Lost to You and worth the read.
I loved Christian and Elizabeth's story from the beginning but did not like the 5 year jump after the first chapter however never mind about that.
Anyway as the books description 5 years later Christian is living the life that he always thought he wanted.........but he can't shake the shame and guilt he feels for letting Elizabeth go all those years ago. Knowing he has a child out there somewhere, he feels his life is incomplete. When he gets an opportunity to relocate with his Father's law firm to San Diago he takes it, as he always wondered if Elizabeth ventured back to the home town where she grew up. With a chance meeting of a small child in a supermarket, he can't shake the feeling that the child is his. Taking the initiative to seek out the truth that's been haunting him, he looks up his ex girlfriend to find she only lives a few miles away.
From here we see a heart wrenching story unfold......so sad a tear came to my eye.
The only slight issue I had was sometimes Elizabeth annoyed me towards the end of the story, Elizabeth's denial of how she felt grated after a while. I can appreciate that she was guarded and scared of letting in him but come on, he was so trying. Won't say anymore you have to read it, you will not be disappointed.
Again the author has done an excellent job here, can we have more please.............
What Christian did at the beginning of the book was a betrayal of the worst kind, but OMG he paid for his sins. And MAN did he pay. Over and over and over. I really did sympathise with Elizabeth the first half of the book but by the time I got near the end that woman had got On. My. Last. Nerve. Yep, The. Last. One!! GAH I wanted to slap her upside the head so many times!! Yes she had a crap time when Christian gave her the ultimatum, but what she seemed to conveniently forget is it took TWO to tango. Not once did she bear any blame for the circumstances she found herself in.
"I know I did Elizabeth, but I can't take it back. God knows, I wish I could, but I abandoned you and there's nothing I can ever do to change that"
Christian lived with guilt that should have crippled him. But it was not only his guilt to bear.
The fact Elizabeth got to me SO bad that I had palpitations says what an awesome book this is. And in spite of this he adored both Elizabeth and Lizzie.
Yes I was angry with her the second half of the book but there was also beautiful, tender moments that had me smiling and really feeling good about life. Lizzie ..... such a beautiful child, inside and out. The love she had for those around her
"You're the best daddy"
And what had me sobbing
"Please stay with me Daddy".
OMG this book tore my heart in two, stomped on it and thankfully put it all back together again.
An amazing book that had me glued from the first page to the last. Awesome, awesome read.
I'm going to read the prequel to this story, hoping to get a better insight into Elizabeth's n Christians relationship. It has to be one of my favourite books that I've read so far in the past year. A well deserved 5 stars.
Christian and Elizabeth's lives then take completely different directions to what they had both planned, and they are both hurting in different ways. Elizabeth cannot forgive Christian for the choice he forced her into, but it means he is no longer in her life. Until circumstances change again, and Christian finds himself in Elizabeth's home town and wondering how her life has turned out.
More love, heartache and warring emotions leave you hoping for one outcome that you don't think is possible - will they work it out or not?
A real breath if fresh air in this genre. I was on the edge of my seat all the way through hoping that it was going to go the way I wanted it to, swift rug pull and I'm back in the will they won't they zone!!
You should definitely read the prequel though, it sets the scene perfectly for this 1, and gives you a better understanding of why things go the way they do in this one.
It is so packed with raw emotion, it will stay with you long after the pages have stopped turning.
The difference with this book....? This actually can and does happen in real life, so the reality of it really helps to capture you and draw you into the characters.
There's not enough words to tell how good it really is.... so just read it, seriously you WILL NOT be disappointed. I loved it with a passion, and will definitely read it again.
