About The Book. About The Author. It really just cuts to the chase and gives you what you want to know anyways. Favorite character and why: She made such strides in character in this story.
She was so determined to rescue her family and bring down the bad guys with little concern for her own safety. Most hated character and why: Plus, she tried to make moves on Alex in Losing Lila!
No one gets between Lila and Alex! Scene that made us the angriest: Alex sat up too and took my hands in his.
The scene where Lila misread something with Alex, all I have to say is, thank goodness for Suki and her mind reading skills! I also just felt generally bad for Amber and when Jack put the blanket around her shoulders while he was comforting her, my heart was touched. Scene that made us most happy: Most liked secondary character: General Thoughts and Final Rating: My rating: Losing Lila was a perfect follow-up to Hunting Lila.
It was action packed fun from the first pages, we got to see a matured Lila using her awesome powers, so cool, by the way. Sarah Alderson really likes to write scenes with shirtless HOT men , count me in! Added bonus: I really hope we get to see another story, maybe centering on Jack next? Would you recommend this book?: A must read for Lila fans or anyone looking for pure unadulterated fun.
And no matter what Jasprit says, she does not have dibs on Alex! We already settled on shared custody! If you want to read Jasprit's answers and thoughts just click here. View all 15 comments. Jul 22, Didi rated it liked it Shelves: The sequel to Hunting Lila was a little disappointing.
Not in any adventure, action or on-the-edge-of-your-seat senses, but more on the why did it end so abruptly sense. It started out with a bang, very exciting and I couldn't put it down.
Everything was great, the action, betrayal and secrecy. Things were revealed and I was guessing at points as to what would happen. Bad guys became good and vice versa.
Really good stuff. Breaking into a billion dollar facility and wiping out 3. Breaking into a billion dollar facility and wiping out another billion dollar defense empire is not an easy thing to do, but it gets done, with little to no glitches. A little unbelievable right? Right, but this is YA and YA tends to gloss over details and specifics.
Explanations you demand are not given and you're honestly expected to go with the flow. There were many instances I was like, " yeah, right! So really, I shouldn't rant because I know this! Anyways, on with the review. I loved how Lila came into herself and discovered the full gamut of her powers--very, very cool. We're talking X-Men cool, and I love that kind of stuff!
So the story although at times highly unrealistic, was extremely entertaining. And of course we can't forget Alex. He was pivotal in helping the group accomplish what they needed. He was a great guy, but almost not guy-ish enough? He was way too honorable for my tastes, refusing to 'take advantage' of Lila and not sleep with her.
Again I know this is YA, so no sex or any of the good stuff, but come on!! The guy is 23! She's turning 18 soon, and they love each other and want to spend eternity with another!! It drove me crazy!
I was honestly expecting a closed sex scene or something at least, although it was very subtly implied that they would towards the end, but STILL!! I thought Jack and Amber may have hit it off, I was getting that subtle vibe again, but it was never explored, made me sad.
The ending was very abrupt. I felt cheated out of many things I can't mention or I'll spoil the book, but let me say, HUGE plot threads were ignored. Oh, yes, we were given a quick closure line but it was completely insignificant.
It did nothing to answer questions or at least tie off the story well. For that reason alone I had to round down to 3 stars, even though I thought this book was better than the first one which I rounded up to 4 stars.
Anyways, we're given a short story from Alex's pov after the book ends, and while it was supposed to be good and thirst quenching for those Alex lovers out there, it was a little disappointing as well. I expected more on his 'moment' with Lila but ended up getting a condensed version of what I already knew about the unit.
Despite all that I really liked this series, even if I wanted a little more clean steam and more attention to detail, but there you have it. View all 16 comments.

Written superbly, Losing Lila is heart pounding from the very first chapter. Continuing on with the storyline from the first book, Alderson once more expands on her world with shocking secrets and unexpected revelations.
All the characters we loved from the first book are back together again to continue their fight against the Unit and the shady Sterling Enterprises once again. Losing Lila was such a thrilling read. The action is heavy and the relationships between the characters form the perfect balance between non-stop action and high stakes danger with romance and emotion. It was really lovely to see Lila really begin to accept herself in this book as well as embrace what she can do.
As her abilities grow and she begins embrace her part in Demos little group, Lila is becoming a stronger person. It was interesting seeing the tables turn for Alex a bit in Losing Lila and see him doubt himself. As someone always so sure and capable, it was nice seeing Alex appear vulnerable; even if he was questioning whether Lila needed him or not.
One of the things that makes their relationship so strong for me is how rooted in the past it is. As I raced through it, unable to put it down, it became clear that Sarah Alderson had penned another winner here and I personally wait for more from this series!
Oct 31, Eunice rated it really liked it Shelves: Who wouldn't love a book when the author goes straight and throw you right away with an action-pack and heart pounding opening? Sarah Alderson sure knows how to capture her audience. Right from the start she had me already really excited and thrilled and I'm very happy to say that she was able to keep it throughout the course of the story.
Losing Lila is fantastic sequel with amazing plot, kick-ass characters, thrilling scenes and shocking twists. I absolutely enjoyed it. I seriously adore Who wouldn't love a book when the author goes straight and throw you right away with an action-pack and heart pounding opening? I seriously adore this girl even if she could be really so stubborn sometimes. She's impulsive and quite reckless yet I love how she's so willing to take risks for her loved ones and be brave and strong with it.
I understand the insecurities he showed here especially after being the only human in their group who isn't a psy.
But Alderson still made his character so purposeful. He became the brain of the group.
He was the one who thought of strategies and planned their actions. And clearly, he played an essential part in the group. Alex and Lila's relationship is, of course, one of my favorite parts in this book.
It was sweet, touching and absolutely swoon-worthy. They had fights and misunderstandings but I love how it grew and developed. The secondary characters are so great. I love how almost all of them made an impression to me especially Nate and Suki! The tandem of this two is just so entertaining and fun. Key too felt like a very warm person, someone who is so easy to talk to and confide with.
Also, I think I developed quite a crush on Jack. And wait, did you notice how thoughtful he'd been to Amber during the last parts? Ooh, I can totally see the two of them together if there would be a third book! D And one more thing! Sarah Alderson never fails to impress me with her ability of writing awesome action-packed scenes. I can so vividly imagine it and it was kick-ass. The stunts were amazing and I love how she describe them with such vigor and energy This is such a outstanding and fantastic book from an excellent and talented author.
She'd proven it in Hunting Lila and with Losing Lila she'd given us a lot more reasons why we have to look forward to more of her books. A third book of Lila will absolutely make me really really happy!
And I want a lot of Jack, please. I recommend this. D This review is also posted at Book Overdose View all 10 comments. Dec 18, Sarah rated it it was amazing Shelves: It's no secret that I was a massive fan of Hunting Lila that's a quote from my review on the front cover of Losing Lila after all!
I wasn't worried though and Sarah Alderson not only met them she surpassed them - everything I loved about the first book is multiplied in the sequel. Losing Lila is an action packed read full of adventure, a heroine with kick ass psychic abilities and a sexy hero who puts the steam into steamy.
Oh boy is the r It's no secret that I was a massive fan of Hunting Lila that's a quote from my review on the front cover of Losing Lila after all! Oh boy is the romance to die for! After the shock ending of Hunting Lila I couldn't wait to see how things played out in this book.
Lila and Alex are on the run from Alex's old unit, their former enemies are now their only allies and they're having trouble staying one step ahead of the military. Lila is terrified for Jack and has no idea what happened to him after his capture, she also knows that her mother is being held prisoner and she is determined to find a way of rescuing them both. But it isn't going to be easy to break into a military base and even if they get inside there is no guarantee that they will make it back out again.
Even with the psychic abilities of Demos and his crew there is no way of knowing if Jack and her mother are still alive - unless Lila is prepared to risk discovery by going undercover. Lila has really come into her own in this book, she proves just how much she is prepared to risk for her family and is brave enough to put her own life in jeopardy to rescue them. She has come a long way towards accepting her abilities and is working hard at learning how to use them to their full potential.
Lila is willing to fight for what she wants - her family reunited and a life for herself with Alex. She has come to rely on her new friends which is good because she is going to need their help.
Alex is as gorgeous as ever and their connection just sizzles off the pages - it is completely obvious that they are meant to be together. I just can't get enough of Alex and Lila - they really are a swoon worthy couple! I love the fact that although Alex is super protective of Lila and will do anything to keep her safe he also accepts that she has the right to be involved in the attempt to rescue her family. In fact, she is better equipped to deal with certain situations than he is.
It goes against all of his instincts to let her face danger without him by her side but he trusts her to do what needs to be done. The story has a satisfying ending and could be left without a further sequel but I'm really hoping that we haven't seen the last of these characters. There are so many directions that the author could take the series in and if I find out she is writing more I will be first in the queue to buy the next instalment.
Whatever she comes up with next Sarah Alderson is on my "must buy immediately" list of authors and while I wait for her next release I'll be singing praises for this series from the rooftops. With Lila's brother and mum in the hands of the Unit, Alex and Lila must work with Demos and the other psy to form a plan to rescue them without falling back into their clutches. It was quite slow and boring, there was a little more action towards the end an 2.
It was quite slow and boring, there was a little more action towards the end and Lila wasn't completely incompetent in the big showdown but it didn't make up for the rest of the book. Overall it was all fairly predictable. Lila's inner monolgue was grating - it was Alex this and Alex that and oh he's so gorgeous and oh he's making my heart race and my nether regions tingle.
Honestly most of the time she had no coherent thoughts - why would I want to read about how 'hawt' Alex is over and over and over again?
I don't, once is more than enough. Their romance for most of the book was one sided - Alex rarely showed what Lila meant to him and that just made Lila seem like a silly little Alex fangirl.
I was a baffled as to why Lila kept referring to her mother as mum instead of mom when she was American - sure she lived in London for a few years but her mother wasn't even in London with her. So when would Lila have gotten a chance to call her mother mum instead of mom? All the other American characters kept saying mum instead of mom - it was odd.
I didn't think Americans said mum. Apparantly in YA land a female can't possibly know when she's ready for sex, only a guy can tell them when they are - it's such utter rubbish. I HATE reading those cheesy, sexist scenes when the heroine is all: It's a lazy, cheap way of trying to show that the randy hero truly wuvs and respects the heroine when he manages to say no to having sex with her because the heroine means more than just sexytimes to him - ugh, it makes me sick.
I'm more interested in Demos and Lila's mum relationship than Alex and Lila's - it sounds more entertaining. I enjoyed Hunting Lila but this one fell short of my expectations.
It wasn't as gripping, mainly because of Lila's dull voice and the weak plot. I'm still interested in the series and I'm hoping the next book will have a stronger storyline and a more interesting Lila.

This fast-paced sequel is definitely not experiencing the second-book-syndrome or whatever is it called. The plot: What to expect? Seriously cute scenes. Hilarious and lovely characters. Predictable betrayal.
Shocking twists and revelations. Action-packed adventure. The characters: She became slightly less annoying to me but still Gaaaah Lila.
Worry about your virginity after you get out of trouble! I find her clumsiness rather funny though. Her tricks, her lies to get off trouble!
And let me tell you- it was A. I'm sure you want to kick his ass, but oh, what a shame, you're in coma. Do you know the feeling when you read a book and there's this guy who doesn't even try but still managed to make you all gushy gushy? Well, that is Alex right there. And he was very honorable. I liked this overprotective brother thing going on. It's too adorable. But probably I won't be that glad if I'm in Lila's place. And the secrets about him He jumps off the stool. Again I stare at him in silence, thinking of all the girls Jack has laid fingers and much more of his anatomy on besides.
Poor Lila. You go girl! I really liked her quirky and fun personality. She and Nate are quite a force when they're together. The ending: What is that? Is there another book after this?
It feels kind of open-ended to me. So that is why I'm giving this 4 stars. Anyway, this was definitely entertaining. Certainly better than the first one but still not without flaws. Recommended with reservations. Who else comes up with the plans? Suki frowned at him.
We've talked about this. Oct 31, Giselle marked it as to-read.
It has a cover! Feb 20, Tamara rated it it was ok. I hate everything about this book but the actual idea behind the whole gifted abilities. I can't even write a review. All I can say is that Alex is so beyond vulnerable, Jack is a character that's suppose to seem overprotective, but he just seems like a control freak, and Lila is this obnoxious combination of ever BAD thing a character can posses.
I have more awful things to say, but I am trying to stay away from spoiling View 2 comments. Nov 05, Jess rated it really liked it Shelves: Review soon. Jan 06, Mada rated it it was amazing Shelves: Breathtaking and amazing. I just loved it.
I need more Alex, Lila and Jack. Sarah Alderson is a genius. Hope there will be at least one more book in the series.
I'm so obsessed. Aug 24, Jena marked it as to-read. View all 4 comments. They shot her brother. The Unit hunts down those with supernatural abilities, and performs experiments of them — whether for a cure or military gains, no one is sure. Alex and Lila are holed up in Mexico, high on the adrenaline of evading the Unit, and their newfound love for one another. That book had everything — from a sweet, unfolding romance between Lila and Alex, to a kidnapping plot and revelation after jaw-dropping revelation … I ended that book with sweaty palms and racing heart.
Oh boy, did it ever! Alderson hits the ground running. An itchy feeling of eyes on you pervades the page, as Alex and Lila use every tactic in his Unit-trained arsenal to evade capture and plot a plan to save those closest to both of them.
I loved it — all the angst and a few revelations about him had me really sitting up and paying attention to Demos, and had me kinda hoping for a prequel or an adult spin-off series?
Wars will happen regardless. Man has always found a way to inflict harm.
This way we get to at least choose the winning side. We get to make the world safer, Alex. You know your problem, Alex? You could do with losing a few scruples. Aug 23, Brodie rated it it was amazing Shelves: It's no secret I love Sarah Alderson and her crazy addictive novels, so my expectations were high for Losing Lila They get involved in some crazy shit.
They It's no secret I love Sarah Alderson and her crazy addictive novels, so my expectations were high for Losing Lila They then meet up with Demos and the team again and get involved in more crazy shit. And so the cycle goes on until you're about to burst from the epicness of it all. We get to explore their personalities on a far deeper level, I can't explain how much I grew to love them or how often the likes of Suki and Nate had me giggling! Despite how much I clearly loved this book, there was one major element that I hated and she goes by the name of Lila Loveday.
I took a step backwards, my shoulders bumping the grille behind me. Alex rolled the sleeve of his T-shirt up and lifted the blade to his arm. And then the door flew open. A priest in black robes was standing there, his mouth gaping as he took in the scene before him — Alex holding a knife and me clutching a gun. He grabbed the rosary hanging around his neck and started squawking loudly in Spanish, his eyes rolling heavenwards.
I glanced at the chapel behind him. Several people had turned to stare. The priest shouted something to our backs as we slipped out of the chapel and made our way towards the central aisle of the cathedral, which was now heaving with people.
I clutched the gun against my thigh and tried to look inconspicuous, but I could feel the ripple of eyes and the swivel of heads as we passed. Alex skidded to a sudden stop in front of me, almost yanking my arm out of its socket. I glanced over my shoulder at the entrance. Six men in black combats had burst through the crowd gathered there. They stopped to let their eyes adjust to the gloom and we took the opportunity to hustle our way down a length of pew and disappear into a pack of tourists standing and admiring the altar.
I risked another backwards glance over my shoulder. Two of the men from the Unit had headed off to the chapels on either side of the entrance, two more were heading to the other side of the church away from us, and the last two were moving down the central aisle straight towards us.
One of them was holding a small palm-sized device which he kept glancing down at. With a final push, we shouldered our way through the crowd towards a little side door behind the altar. Alex reached for the handle and I took a final glance round the cathedral.
I spied what I was looking for in a chapel on the far side, away from where the crowds were gathered. A statue of a saint stood in a little alcove high above the entrance. There was no one below it so I said a little prayer then tipped the statue off its plinth. It fell with a splintering crash that rocked through the muttering quiet of the church like a tidal wave. Instantly people started screaming, and running towards the exits and, in the blur of noise and chaos, Alex and I slipped silently through the little door.
The room we came into was some kind of dressing room. A giant crucifix dominated one wall and choir robes hung from hooks on two other walls. Several candles were burning beneath the crucifix. He pulled the sleeve of his T-shirt up once more and I watched in horror as he ran the blade quickly through a candle flame before pressing the tip of it into the skin of his arm.
He grimaced, and I grabbed a long scarf thing hanging on a hook behind me and handed it to him. Alex held the knife out towards me. On its bloody tip was a tiny metal ball.
He crushed it underfoot before grabbing the cloth out of my hands and wrapping it round his arm, tying it in a knot. We ran again, through doorways, beneath arches and through empty rooms, until we reached a heavy wooden door that came out at the side of the cathedral. The sun was starting to go down and the shadows were lengthening, spiking the square with oblongs and pyramids of dark.
We hung there, in the shadows, waiting. Alex pressed against me, sheltering me against the wall. After a minute he shifted position. I peered out from under his arm, spotting the men from the Unit as they came running out of the cathedral, like spiders disgorged from a nest. They scanned the square, searching for us, people scattering in panic out of their path. The one holding the black device in his hand was frowning and shaking his head.
We watched as they headed over to a black van that had pulled up on the far side of the square, and climbed inside. After another minute it drove off and disappeared into the flow of traffic. He shook his head. I studied his face. He looked grim. Alex was now busy sorting through the bag, laying everything out on the bed next to me. I was watching him. There was about fifty thousand dollars, give or take a few thousand; three guns; several clips of bullets; our passports; and a change of clothes for both of us.
Alex repacked everything, emptying a pile of dollars into his wallet. I reached out a hand and stroked up his arm. He stopped what he was doing and looked down at me. Then he pushed the bag aside and lay down on the bed, putting his uninjured arm round me.
I curled into him. How was I doing? It just shut down like a clam wherever I poked it. I was trying not to think about anything else other than Alex right here, next to me, holding me. I tried to stop them, but they just kept coming.
His fingers went under my chin and he forced it up so I was looking him in the eye. Jack would have done the same thing. He would have wanted you to be safe.

The ballast shifted inside me. From the expression on his face it was clear who had found us. How on earth had they found us?
Nothing happened. Move fast, keep down. Was he trying to make me feel better? What are we going to do? You think they planted a tracking device on you? I mean, in you? We need that bag.
