Lucas by Jay McLean-Cassie’s Review

Why I Read It

Because it is Lucy’s younger brother from the More Than Series

What I Rated It

5 stars

What It’s About

In a sprint, every millisecond counts.
When you’re waiting for love, those milliseconds can feel like eons.

High school senior Lucas Preston has it all: star of the track team, a scholarship waiting for him, an apartment to himself and a revolving door of girlfriends. He also has an older sister, five younger brothers and a father who relies on him to make sure those brothers don’t kill each other.

┬áHis saving grace? Lois “Laney” Sanders, a girl he started to fall in like with when he was just eleven.
A girl who became his best friend, his confidant, his courage.
It took only sixteen clicks and eight seconds for Lucas to realize that his like for Laney had turned into love.
Eight life-changing seconds.
It’s also the exact length of time it took to lose her.

Cassie’s Review

In More Than Forever, we got the rise and set of the sun, eternity, and all sorts of those young love insights and proclamations. It was where we first learned about the Prestons in depth and most importantly FATE. Because time and fate my friends is the most important lesson you could get from this book.

Lucas. Seeing deep into the life the Preston’s lived sans Luce once she went to college was eye opening. You really see how Luke became the glue while still aspiring to do so much was just as inspiring as Lucy stepping up. His obsession of counting comes in handy and is probably the coolest aspect of this book. But he is also kind of a dumb teenage boy and you may or may not want to shake him a couple of times.

LANEY. Good girl extraordinaire. I think she is the most “naturally” introverted character that Jay has written to date. I love her crafty side. I love her patience with Luke, cause that boy needs it. Laney is the Kathy Preston of this generation.

Speaking of Kathy, I am so happy to have had more time with her in this book. To have seen how her legacy affected the others around her. She was a phenomenal lady and I see so much of each of the Prestons in her.

And I cannot write a review without some love for Lachy! That boy is the best. I also loved the look into Leo and Little Logan (the little a**hole)!

This book is more than young love. It is love that starts at its truest, purest, most honest, and most basic form and blooms into love in its rarest form. This book did not take More Than Forever’s place in my heart, but it definitely has been tattooed on my heart.
