This has been in my bookshelf for quite some time, and it shouldn't have! The blurb made it interesting enough to buy but apparently not interesting enough to read immediately, which is a shame. This books blew my expectations big time!
I love how Lila’s abilities is a part of her and not this big weird thing that’s somehow talked about in a different sense than she is. It’s as natural as breathing, for her and for me. She has superpowers, so what? Completely normal. She’s an all around very lovable character, she has her strengths and her flaws. She stubborn to the point where it puts her in danger but she’s strong enough to handle it. Also, she’s in love with her brother’s best friend, which could either be the best thing that’s ever happened to her or it could end in complete devastation.
Let me just say, I sooo get why she love him. He has everything you could ever want in a guy except one thing. Flaws. I wouldn’t want a completely perfect boyfriend, wouldn’t that make me feel inferior in every way? Anyhow, while reading, I can completely overlook that. I mean, he’s gorgeous. And awesome. See my point? I totally get why she loves him.
This book has an intriguing plot, a little bit of love, a whole lot of action and superawesome humans, what’s not to love?
As a completely irrelevant side note, can I just say that that both the cover and Sarah are gorgeous? No? Oh, okay. Did it anyway.

I started reading Hunting Lila after I read the prequel novella, short story, ‘Catching Suki’. I had stayed away from reading any spoilers or even really knowing what Hunting Lila was about as I wanted to read it totally fresh. ‘Catching Suki’ is this irresistible teaser short story that had me hooked. I cracked Hunting Lila open, got told off by hubby at 2am for having the light on and finished it off later in the morning. In other words this book is hard to put down.
This book has momentum. It is fast paced, exciting and you just love all the characters whether they are the goodies or the baddies, cause sometimes it’s hard to tell who is on the bad side of the fence.
Lila is a wonderful, smart character who is almost as stubborn as her brother Jack. She is carrying around a secret with her, well two, but one is written all over her face. She has fled London to see her brother and Alex and lands herself smack bang in the middle of a situation. Her father is not impressed.
Jack, her 22 year old Special Ops brother and Alex his best friend, are on a mission to ‘contain’ people of interest in the death of Jack and Lila’s mother, but it is much bigger than that. This Unit, is so secret that even the President doesn’t even know about them.
Jack and Alex are the two swoon worthy guys in this book, built like GI Joe dolls, all muscle and tightness in all the right places, totally loyal to the cause and to each other. They are total babes and Jack knows it.
Jack is the more volatile of the two, stubborn and totally focused on containing all persons of interest, following orders to the letter.
Alex is the calmer, easier to reason with who can come across as the more wise of the two when sometimes you have to sit back, take stock and question where you are headed.
Did I mention Alex rides a motorbike and knows how to ride fast?
Demos, Amber, Alicia, Ryder, Nate, Suki, Bill and Harvey are great sub characters. In ‘Catching Suki’, you really get a feel for these characters and they hooked me into wanting to know more.
Nate is sweet and funny. Suki means well but manages to let go of a few faux pas and Amber and Ryder are totally in to each other.
Sarah has a wonderful YA voice. She has great word power. Scenes get described so well that you feel like you are the one with your arms wrapped tight around Alex’s waist as you hang on while he gets you to safety on the back of his bike ( or here’s wishing..hehe). I felt like I was watching a movie rather than reading a book. This is how good her word power is. Everything she writes flows so well in this book. It is this massive fast paced ride from start to finish and I want another ticket for Losing Lila.
Sarah has left us on the edge of our seats.
