Lucas (Preston Brothers #1) Reviews
So, before I review this book I have to admit I was completely at fault. See, for some reason, maybe the First name being the title, I mistakenly thought this was by Jay Crownover...think RULE, which I absolutely loved. I realize it's by Jay McLean, but, for me the distinction is paramount. Why? I haven't had much luck with JM's More Than series. I loved the first book, liked the second a lot, and reluctantly liked the third. Then I just stopped, noticing common themes with this author that aggr ...more
There is this feeling I get when I read a Jay McLean book. I can’t explain it. It’s a magical, all consuming feeling. I feel like every time I have a ‘favorite book’ by her, I read her newest release and think- this is my new favorite! Lucas is tied with Kick Push as my favorite Jay McLean book. And that’s some really high praises from me, because I legit LOVE all her books.
Lucas can most definitely be read as a stand-alone, but if you’ve read the More Than series, you already know w ...more
⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ 5 OUTSTANDING STARS!
McLean is vicious with a pen. Her writing just gets better and better. Look, I know this review might look long but trust me when I say I'm holding back to not give anything away. One would easily start this book thinking Lucas is going to be one of those sweet best friend to lover reads. And it is...well..kind of. The thing is, Lucas and Lois have a love story that sort of goes against the grain. Their path is waaaaay different than your average teen romance novel.
Genre: YA Contemporary
POV: First Person - Dual

Before reading any Jay McLean book I always try to emotionally prepare myself, because I KNOW what's coming. I KNOW I'm going to feel all the feelings while spinning round and round on a romantic, angsty, yet still somehow funny, merry-go-round. LUCAS wasn't any different.
From the prologue you are thrust into this serious situation. It makes you THINK you know where things will end up, but honestly you still have no flipping clue. Jay gives you a taste, but still keeps you guessing and anticipa ...more
A Million Love Hard, Love Fierce, but Love Right Stars
Jay McLean has written 11 books to date. She has shared her passion and her pains with her fans and most importantly she has given her readers something MORE.

Then there were those days she had us CHECKING the TIME. Now with her latest release she has s ...more

5+++++ STUNNING Lois Lane and Clark Kent Stars
I love Jay McLeans storytelling she just pulls you in and grips you from the beginning. Also there is no sugar coating the realness of her books, and this was just that. OMG I was laughing, crying, in pain then happy... a rollercoaster of emotions.
So what's it about?
This is a friends to lovers story, I just love these books and Jay has slow burn down to the T. Lucas is Lucy's younger brother from More than forever book which you don't have to read ...more
