VBT Review: Lost Without You

ost Without You
By: Heather Thurmeier

Zoe Oliver never wanted to be on another reality TV show… until Chip Cormack made an offer too good to refuse. He’s guaranteed her a payday this time and a chance to redeem herself in America’s eyes. But Zoe worries she won’t be able to focus as her desire for Chip grows and her strength to resist him weakens. When she learns she’ll be roughing it in the woods with Chip and without luxuries like indoor plumbing and electricity, she’s instantly on edge, feeling naked and terrified that her scars will be exposed and her secrets revealed. When Zoe’s past turns up on the show, she fears she’ll lose not only the life she’s sacrificed everything else to have, but also the affections of the only man she’s ever trusted with her heart.

Review Rating: 4 LIGHTNING BOLTS

Review:  I fell in love with the first book in this series, and couldn't wait for more!  The heroine in Lost Without You, I will admit, I did NOT like! Zoe drove me nuts, her attitude made me want to smack her, and I wondered when i heard she was getting her own story how the author was going to redeem Zoe.

Starting off in Lost Without You, I picked up the same annoying vibes from Zoe. She acts so high maintenance and irked me. But as I got to know her, I noticed most of her attitude was a facade. She hid some things which she wants no one to know about. So when she comes face to face with a person from her past that could expose it all, Zoe freaks.

The hero of the book is Chip. We also know him from the other books in the series. I was always intrigued by him and had hoped we would get another glimpse of him, and sure enough, he got his own story! Hey, I won't complain about that.  Chip has always kind of looked out for Zoe, and I was surprised when they were paired together as a match. It got quite...interesting many times throughout the story, as they fought their attraction.  Both Zoe and Chip learn things about the other that surprise them and help to bond on a deeper connection.

As always, the author writes in a light, humorous style that keeps the pages flying and the smile spread across my face.  Lost Without You is another fun, light contemporary romance that's sure to win readers over. If you like to read about heroines that deserve a little redemption and a hero that's sexy and fun, check out Lost Without You.
