Ever had a dream so real it feels like a memory?
I’ve had those kinds of dreams since I was a kid. Each one of a beautiful girl, who is my best friend. We grow up together on a sunny island surrounded by water that’s as blue as her eyes. We share all our hopes and fears until we realize we belong to each other in every way one person claim another. She is my own personal serenity. Sweet story, eh?
Well forget about it.
The cold, harsh reality is that I’m a twenty-year-old, Manhattan bred, manwhore, who uses his fists to solve his problems. The only comfort I find is inside a bottle... and the dreams. But the dreams are my illness not my cure. Just when things look the darkest, the sun slaps me square in the jaw. I spot a picture of a scenic island surrounded by the bluest water – my island.
If the island exists then so must the girl, right?
So I’m headed to Serenity, Texas to find my girl and make some sense out of the chaos that is my life. Feel free to tag along, but this journey comes with a steep warning — dreams can turn into nightmares in the blink of an eye.
My name is Jason Flynn and this is our story.

This book sounded interesting, and in the beginning it was, but I can't say that I'm impressed with it. I just couldn't get into it. Jason is a Manhatten beachlor, living his not-so good life. He had some very serious issues in the past and problems with his behaviour. At night when he sleeps, he has a very vivid dreams that feel more like memories than dreams. To find a girl from his dreams Jason decides to visit a small Island in Texas where his aunt lives. There he meets the girl from his dreams, Scarlett and he also finds out some very interesting things. While this book was nice and I wanted to find out what was happening, it was also very confusing and that made it hard to read. It constantly goes back and forth between riality and dreams, and for me that was very confusing. Also, the paranormal aspect was something that I didn't like. I don't like paranormal romance in general so... Scarlett and Jason were fine couple and I think that I would've liked them if it wasn't for everything else that pulled my attention from them. If you like paranormal romance give this book a chance.
3.75 stars--LOST YEARS by M.K. Schiller is a contemporary, new adult, paranormal romance story line focusing on twenty year old Jason Flynn, and Scarlett Jones. Told from first person perspective (Jason Flynn) using memories, dreams and present day LOST YEARS focuses on Jason Flynn as he struggles with nightmares and dreams, and memories that may or may not be real or ever existed. Suspended from college for fighting, New York resident and spoiled rich kid Jason Flynn heads to Serenity, Texas, to spend time with the aunt he never knew, in an effort to ‘find’ the young woman who has haunted his dreams. Enter Scarlett Jones, wanna-be country singer, and the woman with whom Jason will fall in love. What ensues is the building romance and relationship between Jason and Scarlett, as Jason comes to terms with what has happened, and what will be. LOST YEARS is a story of what ifs and whys; a story of lost love, questionable memories, reality and dreams. We are introduced to Scarlett’s best friends Russell Foster, and Tommy Castings; Jason’s sister Anna and fiancé Keith, and their feisty diner owner, Aunt Rose. The premise is a psychological mystery with a little bit of heart break and emotional fall-out; the romance is sweet and passionate; the characters are colorful and captivating. LOST YEARS is a different kind of paranormal read, more contemporary romance with distinct elements of the supernatural. The reader will have to pay attention to the ‘time slips’ from present day to memories of the past.
This book had an awesome plot/story line. It took me a little while to get into the story, which I think was due to the way the dream sequences fit into the story, but once I got about a third of the way into the story it was hard to put down. MK Schiller wrote a thought-provoking story and I really found myself working hard to figure out exactly what was happening, how it was happening, and how it (the story) could possibly get to a happy conclusion. Great job!! I received an Advanced Reader Copy of this book in exchange for my honest opinion. I really enjoyed the book and would love to read more books by this author..
