I wish someone would’ve warned me about the dangers of falling in love with your best friend.
I was no stranger to covering up my problems with meaningless sex and alcohol.
When Brea asked me for one night to help her forget, I craved being the man she needed.
Then she begged me to promise her nothing would change between us. I couldn’t bring myself to lie to her.
One broken promise.
I will never forget the night I fell in love with my best friend, and now nothing will ever be the same.
*Lost Before You is an interconnected stand-alone. You do not need to read Where I Found You to enjoy this book.*
I haven’t read anything by Brooke O’Brien before, but I am so happy I found her! Friends to Lovers’ books are some of my favorites, and I LOVED this one!
Mason and Brea have been friends for a long time, but the two have harbored secret feelings for a while. Both have issues with trust, and Brea even more so because of her ex. She decides to throw caution to the wind and takes comfort in Mase for one night with no commitments. She can’t bear to lose him as her friend, and she knows Mase doesn’t do relationships. Of course, one night will change them! They have to finally deal with the feelings they have for one another, and it won’t be easy.
I couldn’t help but love Mase even if he was a player! He ALWAYS put Brea first. I loved the dual POVs because it gave me insight to their most personal thoughts. Despite his reputation, he was unsure of Brea. He knew he wanted long-term with her, but he was scared of getting hurt. I loved seeing that vulnerable side to him. Brea grew so much as a person throughout the book. She was so hurt by her past, and it greatly affected her. By the end of the book, she was someone different, and I liked her even better. She definitely proved she had a wonderful, forgiving heart. I thought she and Mase were perfect together, and I hoped they realized it before it was too late.
Lost Before You was a perfect title for this book! Mase and Brea were definitely lost before they found one another. Each had issues with their families, and together they were able to help and support one another. I can’t wait to read more in the series!!!!

Where I Found You (Heart’s Compass #1)
How do you protect your heart?
Build a wall.
Lock it away.
Let no one in.
Everyone should have a childhood worth remembering. Only I remember mine for all the wrong reasons. Starting over in a new town is hard enough. When you are running from your past, it doesn’t get any easier.
I was ready to say goodbye to the burdens I have carried. The pain I’ve experienced is more than anyone should have to face.
Then I met him…
He takes my breath away. I can’t ignore the way he makes me feel. I know he has the power to destroy me.
And that’s what scares me the most

Brooke O’Brien is the author of the Heart’s Compass series. Her debut novel, Where I Found You, released in May 2017. The second book in the Heart’s Compass series, Lost Before You, will release on October 27th.
Brooke lives in the Midwest with her high school sweetheart and their three children (both human and furry). Growing up Brooke always had a love of writing; she started out writing poetry when she was young and began journaling her thoughts as she grew older. Diving headfirst into a good book has always been therapeutic for her. Now her two passions have collided.
She believes you can cure any bad day with chocolate. Brooke enjoys going on long drives with no destination in mind. She’s found that’s when her characters talk to her the most! If she’s not reading or writing, you’ll probably find her spending time with her family, watching NBA basketball, going to the movies, or collecting signed paperbacks.
