Review:: Losing Lila by Sarah Alderson

Title: Losing Lila 
Author: Sarah Alderson
Publisher: Simon Pulse
Pages: 343
Format: Paperback ARC

A special Thank you to Simon Pulse for sending this book to review.

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.

I really enjoyed Hunting Lila and I have been eagerly awaiting what this next installment would bring. It starts off immediately where Hunting Lila leaves off. Alex and Lila are on the run and are heading for Mexico to wait for Demos and the other team members. I love the steamy moments between Alex and Lila and I was seriously wishing this wasn't a Young Adult book. Ha! They have great chemistry and Alex has a sort of Jason Bourne persona while trying to keep Lila safe. 

There is plenty of action and intrigue to keep you interested. There were a few shocking moments that got really excited to keep reading into the night. I really don't want to spoil anything about this story so I'll just say that I loved it! I'm hoping for a 3rd book but there aren't any plans for one at the moment. I wouldn't mind more Alex and Lila! 

"Damn Alex and his resolve. If I died a virgin, I’d never forgive him."
