What would you do if you were told that everything you had ever believed in and everything you had ever known, was a lie?
Elle’s life is altered forever after an unexpected phone call and an unwelcome visitor. Trying to put her life back together, Brax’s last words continue to echo through her mind. Why she is being followed and why is she suddenly in danger? The fact that Brax knew about it all and still left her alone, breaks her fragile heart all over again.
Brax will never forgive himself for leaving Elle at a time when she needed him the most, even if he believed it was the only way to protect her. As he makes his way back to her life, he is determined to win her back, regain her trust and help rebuild her for the second time. His return proves he is the same man, yet Elle sees in his eyes a haunted look she knows all too well.
When a confession leaves Elle reeling, her entire life unravels around her. She begins to understand that the people she trusts the most have put her in grave danger and the people who have been protecting her actually want to cause her harm.
Elle soon discovers that the old adage is true, you have to become lost before you can be found.
Lost for You - BJ Harvey
“Darlin’, I was bewitched well before I met you and not once have I ever lied to you about my feelings. My heart started beating the moment you came into my life.”
I have fallen in love with Braxton (Brax) James. He’s protective, hunky sweet, tortured on keeping things from Elle, and has fallen hard for this young woman that he’s supposed to be protecting from harm.
For almost a year now, Brax and his partner, Shay have been protecting Elle from the person/people who are after her. Harry Brimstone was her father’s best friend, business partner and he’s Elle’s godfather. Is it him that’s behind hurting Elle? Or someone else? Harry is the CEO of Brightlight Industries, the company that Elle has inherited since her parents and younger sister were murdered. He’s asked her to sell the company to him; Elle is against selling; but if something were to happen to Elle, he then would get the first option to buy her stake in Brightlight.
Is Harry the only threat to Elle’s life?
Will the secrets end this love in it’s early stages?
“Don’t write me off, sweetheart. Don’t give up on us. Please, don’t decide anything until you hear the full story. When you’re ready to hear it, I’ll be here.”
If you’d like a summer read that has romance, a lot of suspense, who’s really after Elle & many surprises/secrets revealed….then this is the book to read. I didn’t expect what this book uncovered for me throughout reading it. Sometimes, I found myself saying “Wow….didn’t see that coming!” This story flowed and I really liked it. Brax can no longer keep the secret from Elle that he’s come into her life because he was sent to protect her from harm. Will that mean the end for these two? Elle is still a very fragile young woman who has experienced a horrible tragedy with the deaths of her parents and sister. She doesn’t allow people to get close to her. I think that may be because of the fear that she may loose them, too. But Brax has wormed his way into her life.
Along with the suspense, there is romance……..it’s sweet, true and deep. I loved the way this author mixed everything together. She added a little dab of this and a little dab of that. And I wasn’t prepared for what takes place near the end. And that’s all I’m going to say besides “Enjoy this book as much as I did!”
I highly suggest reading “Lost in Distraction” first before this book. It gives you the background of how Brax and Elle meet and under what circumstances.

Having always loved reading, and having been befriended and inspired by some awesome self published authors and book lovers alike, I decided to start writing my first novel, Lost in Distraction in December 2012. It was a conscious decision that started with a song, then the prologue and then catapulted from there. I love music too, like REALLY love music, if there isn't music playing, something is wrong. Out and Proud Vampire Diaries fan as well.
I'm also a wife, mother, full-time university student and I do contract work for myself from home
