Alex and Lila are on the run, desperately trying to stay one step ahead of the Unit, which is somehow tracking their every move. While Alex is determined to keep Lila safe and her ability secret at any cost, Lila's only thought is of finding a way back to California so she can rescue her brother and mother from the military base where they're being held. Struggling to control both her growing power and her deepening feelings for Alex, Lila decides the time has finally come to stop running and start fighting. Together with Alex, Demos, and the others she's come to think of as family, Lila plans not only to save her brother and mum, but also to completely destroy the Unit and everything it stands for. But the plan requires Lila to return to California alone, and to make friends with the enemy - and in doing so, she risks losing everything: Alex, her family… even her life.
My Thoughts:
What A Rush!!!

Ever since I read Sarah Alderson's Hunting Lila I completely fell in love with this world. So I'm thrilled to say that not only did Losing Lila not disappoint, it surpassed all my expectations.  Love love loved it!!

Losing Lila starts off eight days after the events at Joshua Tree. Alex and Lila are on the run from the Unit and trying to come to grips with the guilt that they not only left Jack in their hands but that Lila's mom has been alive the entire time. With the help of Demos, Suki, Key and Nate they devise a rescue plan as well as a total take-down of the entire Unit operation. That's only if Lila can get control of her powers and Alex can find it in himself to let go of Lila... 

Wow! What an amazing sequel! Sarah has done an incredible job of mixing heart pounding excitement and whirlwind suspense with one of the sweetest romances I ever had the pleasure of reading! 

I've always loved reading about X-Men kind of books but Sarah really owned this concept. I loved the unpredictability of it all and I loved all the twist and turns making this even more brilliant then I could possibly imagine!
I absolutely adore every single one of these characters! I loved Demos and the entire group. I love the serge of power and what they can accomplish as a team.

Lila is such an easy character to love. She wants nothing more then to protect her family. She's strong but vulnerable. She doesn't try to prove that she's this bad-ass Psys chick, she's more then willing to ask a little help from her friends. I adored her sibling bond with her brother, Jack. They provided some really fun banter and really funny moments perfect for defusing the tension. Always did love strong family ties and it just doesn't get stronger then this.

I thought I loved Alex in the first book but that was nothing compared to him in this one! He is just so dame sweet and caring and protective. He's been looking after Lila his whole life so it's been really hard on him now that Lila is this skilled kick-ass girl who can take care of herself. Apart of him doesn't feel needed and one would think that something like this would take a huge hit on his ego, but that's not what this is about. I think he was just afraid of not being enough and fighting everything he has in himself to protect and shelter the girl he loves. But through it all, he really believes in Lila and what she can do. His support and encouragement is just another reason to love him so much. Their moments together was completely smile, sigh and swoon worthy!

Bottom line, I loved this book. It's another instant favorite and by far my favorite Alderson book.  The plot explodes right off the pages, these characters are crazy awesome, the romance is snuggleable and warm and the writing will consume your imagination throughout this entire experience. 

If your looking for a book that will completely entertain and melt you at the same time, look no further, this book has it all!! Can't wait to see what Sarah comes up with next! Brilliant!
