Lost For You by BJ Harvey (Lost #2)
Expected release: July 23, 2013
What would you do if you were told that everything you had ever believed in and everything you had ever known, was a lie?
Elle’s life is altered forever after an unexpected phone call and an unwelcome visitor. Trying to put her life back together, Brax’s last words continue to echo through her mind. Why she is being followed and why is she suddenly in danger? The fact that Brax knew about it all and still left her alone, breaks her fragile heart all over again.
Brax will never forgive himself for leaving Elle at a time when she needed him the most, even if he believed it was the only way to protect her. As he makes his way back to her life, he is determined to win her back, regain her trust and help rebuild her for the second time. His return proves he is the same man, yet Elle sees in his eyes a haunted look she knows all too well.
When a confession leaves Elle reeling, her entire life unravels around her. She begins to understand that the people she trusts the most have put her in grave danger and the people who have been protecting her actually want to cause her harm.
Elle soon discovers that the old adage is true, you have to become lost before you can be found.
“Shh dear, you’re okay. You had surgery. You were shot. I need you to calm down for me sweetheart” I hear an older woman’s warm voice talking softly beside me. Her voice sounds very maternal and it is calming me down. She continues, “Elle, you are okay now. You are in the hospital and you’ve just had surgery to fix up your chest. Do you remember where you are now?”
I nod my head ever so slightly, seemingly wrestling my eyelids to open of their own accord. They feel like they’re stuck together. I try again and get the smallest glimpse of light coming from in front of me.
“That’s right Elle, nice and slow now. We’ve turned the lights off so that it won’t be so painful for you. You just need to relax and try breathing normally. Slow and steady breaths” I hear her say from my left hand side. I turn my head towards her voice.
“W….Water” I rasp, my voice barely audible.
I hear something knock against the bed beside me, startling me. “We need to take it slow Elise, ice chips to start off with okay. Open your mouth slightly.”
I oblige and feel a cold spoon on my parched lips and the cool smoothness of the ice chips as they melt on my tongue. I moan. It feels so good to have some water, even in ice form.
I gesture for more, nodding carefully when she brings the cup back towards me.
“Okay. One last lot before I check your obs again” the nice woman tells me.
I point to her name badge, my hand shaking as she puts another small spoonful of ice chips into my open mouth.
“I’m Beverly. I’m your nurse for the next three hours until I finish my shift.
No wanting to hurt my throat again I give her a small nod and smile.
I feel a small warm hand gently grab my wrist then the ripping of Velcro while a scratchy cuff is pulled up to the top of my arm. Beverly turns my wrist outwards, pressing two fingers on my pulse point while I feel the cuff start to inflate and tighten. “You gave us quite a scare there for a while. Especially in the OR.”
I clear my throat. It feels so dry and rough but I’m still feeling really confused and wary. “W…what happened?”

About the Author
Having always loved reading, and having been befriended and inspired by some awesome self published authors and book lovers alike, I decided to start writing my first novel, Lost in Distraction in December 2012. It was a conscious decision that started with a song, then the prologue and then catapulted from there. I love music too, like REALLY love music, if there isn’t music playing, something is wrong. Out and Proud Vampire Diaries fan as well.
I’m also a wife, mother, full-time university student and I do contract work for myself from home.
