"Lost" by Sarah Ann Walker Review + Giveaway

 Title: Lost
Author: Sarah Ann Walker
Genre: Adult, Dark Romance
Release Date: October 31, 2014
Cover Designer: James Freeburg
My name is Sophie Morley, and this is my story of loss. 

I used to be mature, professional, and stable. I used to have friends and colleagues who respected me. I used to be someone I respected. I knew the life I wanted, and I lived within my forever plans. I was everything I thought I should be. 
Then I met the man of my dreams, and everything changed in me. Everything I was and everything I was to become changed with his love. And I've never regretted one single moment of the life we shared. 

My name is Sophie Morley, 
and I am lost.

"I have to go. I'm sorry. I love you, Sophie," he said as he kissed my head and quickly walked away from me.
"What? Why?!" I croaked through the sudden tightness in my throat.
"The way I feel about you ties me in knots and makes me afraid of everything. I'm afraid you'll leave me, and I'm afraid you'll be taken away. I know you love me and I feel the same, but I have to go now. I know something bad is going to happen to you if you stay."
When he took his coat from the closet and walked to the front door, he paused for only a second. One second in which I had had the perfect words. I wished I could have said something to make him stay. I wished I could have said something. But I was stuck in a spinning, shaking, shocked world of total disbelief.
And I had no words.

I rated Lost by Sarah Ann Walker FIVE LEAVES!! 
This was my first book by Sarah Ann Walker. I can guarantee you I am now her biggest fan! Lost is one of the most intense and gut-wrenching stories I have ever read! Lost is extraordinary brilliant!! A captivating, mysterious, and intriguing love story with a twist.  This story was so additive, gripping, and incredibly well-written. I am going to try to keep this review very vague in an effort to keep the story exciting and mysterious for y'all.  It would be so easy for someone to ruin this story, but no one can put this story into words do it justice. There are hidden secrets that creep throughout this book, throughout Sophie's story and Peter's journey. This is a standalone read with a heart-warming ending with the way the story unfolds, you realize just how deep Sophie's love is (Disclaimer: have some tissues close by!!)

We meet Sophie. She is independent, smart, and beautiful. Growing up she was had goals and she knew that she was going to have her "forever" career and her "forever" love.  She had everything planned out for her just the way she wanted until Peter comes into her life. He will "forever" change her life.   Peter is the perfect man for Sophie and she knew from just a couple of times spending with him  he was going to be her "forever" love.  Peter made Sophie really love, live, and feel LOST. At first, I thought okay, Peter is just too good to be true. I kept bracing myself reading this book that I knew something would creep in about him that I wasn't going to like.  I felt like I was guarding my heart as was Sophie.  I cried so much in this book, I actually felt like I was Sophie. If you are lucky in life to experience full blown love, you will do anything and sacrifice to feel that kind of love. Love knows no boundaries, it makes you feel and hurts, do questionable things, love can be hard sometimes; but in the end those are the love stories that are most precious.  I felt every emotion Sophie was going through when she was with Peter and more.

Pick this book up and fall in love with characters.  I promise you won't regret this powerful story.
