Lost in You - Book Tour and Giveaway

Official Summary:
Ryan Stone is a less than average teenager. He doesn’t have fancy clothes. He doesn’t carry around the latest smartphone and he definitely doesn’t have an MP3 player. Instead, he goes to school, does his chores and dreams of a new life away from Brookfield where he’s expected to follow in his blue collar family’s footsteps.

Hadley Carter is America’s Pop Princess. A successful recording artist living her dream with a sold-out tour and a handful of Grammy’s there isn’t much that she wants for, except love. But finding love on the road is near impossible when all she longs for are romantic dinners, a nighttime stroll on the beach and holding hands with someone who isn’t going to exploit her.

When a chance encounter introduces Ryan to Hadley, will he be like her adoring fans looking for a way in, or will it be Hadley who pursues Ryan even though it might cost her the only career she's known.

Lost in You is a story about following your dreams, taking risks and getting lost in love.

My Summary:
Ryan is just starting Senior year, with nothing much to expect out of life.  All Ryan wants to do is get out of Brookfield and make something of his self.  Ryan’s best friend, Dylan, drags him to some concert she won meet and greets for.  While sitting in the corner at the meet and greet, Ryan finds himself attracted to a girl for the first time.

Hadley is living the life.  She’s a popstar with sold out shows all over the world, with fans fawning over her every move.  Hadley has learned to protect her heart after a messy public breakup.  At one of her usual meet and greets Hadley finds herself drawn to a guy for the first time in years.
Hadley and Ryan run into problems.  Ryan is stuck in high school, while Hadley is touring the world. To make matters worse, Ryan is only seventeen, while Hadley is twenty-two.  Hadley’s life is under a microscope, she’s constantly followed by paparazzi.  Keeping their relationship out of the papers is challenging when all they want is to be together.

Hadley and Ryan bid their time, counting the days till Ryan turns eighteen so they can be together.

My Review:
I loved this book, it was a refreshing change for Young Adult.  The book switches between Hadley and Ryan's POV, so you really get to know each character.  There are times you want to shake the characters into sense, but I just shook my ereader, but the characters are easy to relate to and like.  This book will run your emotions through the rinse cycle, and will leave you tears in your eyes.  Overall the book was endearing, though frustrating at times, but I would read it again.
