REVIEW: Losing Us (One of the Sex on the Beach Novellas) By, Jen Mclaughlin

When it all comes crashing down...

Everything I thought I had with Austin Murphy—safety, stability, the normalcy I crave but my celebrity lifestyle rarely allows—was ripped away in one night. I wanted to surprise him, but the joke was on me. Now I don't know if I ever really knew him at all.

Someone has to pick up the pieces...

Mackenzie Forbes was everything I ever wanted and the one person I didn't deserve. When a past mistake costs me the girl I love, I'll do everything I can to get her back. We both have demanding careers and family secrets darkening our pasts, but I need Mackenzie in my future.

Sometimes everything you have to give just isn't enough...

Losing Us was an emotional read about a couple that has to face the challenges of fame, trust, and love. We are brought back into the world and romance of Austin and Mackenzie. A lot of things have changed for the couple. Austin’s fame is rising and the separation is really starting to wear on both of them. Now there are even more challenges and while they are trying to overcome them Austin is also trying to earn Mack’s trust back. Which isn’t easy to do with adoring fans that tend to cross the line.

This book was a quick read that was also highly emotional and raw. There were definitely some painful moments in this book. One of them is Austin’s past, it was completely heartbreaking. It was also hard to watch Austin and Mack work through their problems. The best part of this book is that it was a fluid relationship arc from Between Us to Losing Us. The couple had problems to grow out of and work through. It was sweet watching the couple work through their problems, build trust, and learn to have faith that their love can make it. This book was a great ending for this couple and I really enjoyed it.
