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.

His 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. 
I am a huge fan of this author and I fell in love with Lucas immediatelyThis is a spin off from the More Than series, and we met Lucas in Lucy and Cameron's book.  I have always loved Jay McLean's books because they are funny and sweet but also emotional and heartbreaking.  And this one is no different.  In Lucy's book we get to know some of the Preston family, but this one gets even deeper in there dynamic.  It made me feel like I was part of the Preston clan.  And Laney was amazing.  She was strong and sweet, but also vulnerable.  There was of course a time when I wanted to scream at them both!  And also several heart breaking parts, I adored the whole thing.  The relationship between Lucas and Laney was so complex and sweet and I loved being a part of it.
 Lucas is available now, and I highly recommend it!!
