I wish someone would’ve warned me about the dangers of falling in love with your best friend.
I was no stranger to covering up my problems with meaningless sex and alcohol.
When Brea asked me for one night to help her forget, I craved being the man she needed.
Then she begged me to promise her nothing would change between us. I couldn’t bring myself to lie to her.
One broken promise.
I will never forget the night I fell in love with my best friend, and now nothing will ever be the same.
*Lost Before You is an interconnected stand-alone. You do not need to read Where I Found You to enjoy this book.*

The second book in the series, I think I fell in love with this book even quicker than I did the first. In Lost Before You we get the story of Mason and Brea. Best friends for a few years, they are headed into their senior year in college together. She has a boyfriend, he doesn’t need a girlfriend with his reputation and patterns he follows. When things break off between Brea and her boyfriend, she turns to Mason for one night to forget it all. She requests a promise that nothing will change between them. They can have one night together and still be best friends when the fog of the night before wares off. What Brea doesn’t realize is when she asks that of Mason, he will never be able to keep that promise. The chemistry between them is so unbelievable that you kind of wonder why the two hadn’t ended up together sooner. There is drama, emotion and lots of steamy between-the-sheets time that neither of them had planned on continuing beyond their one night together. When history, friendship and love mix, what could go wrong right? Wrong. This book packs so much into it that I am so excited to get the next story in the series. Brooke has done such an amazing job of telling a story that so many of us have been through in our life’s. Friends to lovers is always a fun read for me and I can’t wait to see these two pop-up in the next installment.

Where I Found You (Heart’s Compass #1)
How do you protect your heart?
Build a wall.
Lock it away.
Let no one in.
Everyone should have a childhood worth remembering. Only I remember mine for all the wrong reasons. Starting over in a new town is hard enough. When you are running from your past, it doesn’t get any easier.
I was ready to say goodbye to the burdens I have carried. The pain I’ve experienced is more than anyone should have to face.
Then I met him…
He takes my breath away. I can’t ignore the way he makes me feel. I know he has the power to destroy me.
And that’s what scares me the most
