Overview

*Recommended 17+ due to strong language and sexual content*

Ness's parents are shocked when she turns down her place at Leeds University and takes on a full-time job in a call center. Determined to begin her adult life the way she wants, Ness moves to Leeds to live with her best friend Abby.

One night she meets Evan, who is everything she hates about guys. He may be hot but he's also drunken, arrogant, and on top of that, he apparently has sex with girls and forgets about it. But Evan isn't what he seems and Ness soon discovers they have more in common than she thought.

Evan is struggling to escape from his past too, and when Lucy appears she threatens his new relationship with Ness. Unsure if she can deal with the effect Lucy has on Evan, Ness makes a decision about her future which pulls them apart.

When their new lives don't go as planned, Ness and Evan are both faced with difficult choices.

Meet the Author

Lisa was born in the UK and she moved around Europe with her military family before completing a BA (Hons) in English at the University of Leeds. Her home is now in Perth, Australia with her husband and three children. Lisa has written since she was a child - moving from writing poems and short stories aged nine to writing novels in the last few years. With the encouragement of her family and local writers group, Lisa found the confidence to share her latest paranormal romance series with the world.

In between running her home based craft supplies business, looking after her family, and writing, Lisa sometimes finds spare time to do other things. This often involves swapping her book worlds for gaming worlds. She even leaves the house occasionally, enjoying walks with her dog and time with her family. She loves all things from the Whedonverse and preferred vampires before they sparkled.

Lisa enjoys reading both classics and modern fiction. Her favorite genres are gothic, paranormal and urban fantasy, but she also enjoys contemporary new adult. She is currently working on more books in the Soul Ties series, and has other projects lined up waiting.

    Because of Lucy is a book that has been on my iPad for so long t

    Because of Lucy is a book that has been on my iPad for so long that I forgot it existed until I wrote it on a slip of paper and put it in my TBR jar a few weeks ago. It was my second pull from my TBR jar. (Have I mentioned I kinda love this thing? It's giving me a chance to read books that have been long buried and forgotten about.) 

    All in all, Because of Lucy was a good, quick read. While I liked both Ness and Evan, I didn't really ever feel all that connected to any of the characters. Because of that, I fear it's doomed to be forgotten again pretty quickly now that I've finished it. There was an air of mystery to the book as it began because we knew Lucy had an impact on Evan's life, but we didn't know who she was to him. Both Ness and Evan had baggage and I liked watching them overcome that to be together. They were really good together and good for each other. 

    Because of Lucy held my interest throughout, even if I didn't ever fully connect with the characters. I wanted to know who the mysterious Lucy, who had such an important role in Evan's life, was. I enjoyed that portion of the story and the way everything was handled. This was a sweet and sexy book that had just enough drama and angst to keep me reading. There were some grammatical errors I found to be pretty distracting (and this wasn't an ARC) in the beginning, but I didn't notice as much in the latter part of the book.
