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.
Lucas and Laney have been best friends since they were children. Laney has been in love with Lucas for such a long time, but he just doesn’t seem to love her like that.
It was frustrating to read about how they loved each other, but things always got in the way. Things that in my opinion could have been handled and dealt with. They could have been together from the start, but it just didn’t happen. I wanted to shake Lucas and ask him why he wasted all this time and went out with all those girls when he had Laney. With Laney, I just wish she talked to Lucas before she made such rash decisions. I know she was hurt, but again, it could have been handled differently. I however do not blame her for anything that happened after that. It was not her fault. She was too young, and no one deserves what she went through. I think some people have to understand that you can’t just tell someone who is in a relationship like Laney was to just leave the person they are with. It’s not that easy. It was so hard for me to read about that. Laney was such a sweet, kind, and smart girl. She just met the wrong guy at the wrong time.
When they finally got together, I cried. It was about freaking time!
There are a lot more brothers, and I’m so excited to see what’s in store for all of them!
