Thank you to Netgalley and Crown Publishing for my advance copy of Lost You by Haylen Beck! This book was released YESTERDAY, so you’re able to run out and get yourself a copy TODAY!
I dove in to this book knowing nothing…and honestly, I loved that aspect. I knew it was a thriller and I absolutely loved the surprise roller coaster ride this book took me on, so don’t expect much of a description on this book from me.
The main subject in this book is surrogacy. At first I thought this book took place almost like a dystopian place, where (paid) surrogacy is illegal. I became curious and so I googled the subject…much to my surprise surrogacy is NOT legal in all 50 states! This book highlights a couple living in New York (where it’s illegal to have paid surrogacy) going through an agency to obtain their own baby. They use the surrogate’s egg, husband’s sperm. Oh what a tale that unfolds!
The opening paragraph is a sneak peek at the ending…it doesn’t spoil ANYTHING for the reader, just makes you more curious once we start to meet the characters! At first I thought they had given the ending away and when I went back to reread it, oooooo, what a move…WHAT. A. MOVE. I couldn’t put this book down after that realization!!
Fantastic 4 star read. This was a fantastic, fast paced thriller with secrets and twists and turns throughout. The only thing that bothered me throughout the book was that NO ONE took into consideration the fact that this was the husband’s baby too. I would have to research more to see what all entails in this kind of situation, but man, what an eye opening read about the issue of surrogacy. I could absolutely see this kind of situation happening…never mess with a parent and their child! Hooked yet? Get this book NOW!
