Ten years ago, Lucas Benson fell into my life.
We lived like nomads together for years, traveling the country, never looking behind us, living for nothing but each day and each other.
But then everything fell apart… especially my heart.
Five years later and my wanderlust years were behind me. New York was now my home.
I had everything, including a new man and a plan.
At least I that’s what I thought… until Lucas walked back into my life and stole my breath away with one cocky smile.
A smile that could change everything…

Review by Tara
“If this was what he could do with just a kiss, I would regret going any further with him. One touch, one taste, and he was already under my skin. If I allowed him inside, I would never be able to let him go.”
LJ took my heart on a rollercoaster ride with Before Us….There Was Him. Each page was filled with ups, downs, twists and turns.
“My head was at odds with my heart, knowing that this day with him could lead to a decision that would change the rest of my life. One day that didn’t seem like enough. “
After Riley lost her family, she never felt at home. On a girls trip, Lucas catches her eye and her heart. Deciding to take a risk, Riley joins Lucas on a cross country trip, where they learn, love and make memories. But walking away isn’t easy, and Lucas needs to set Riley free. Time supposedly heals all, but as Riley and Lucas grow, apart from each other, their lives changes in so many ways. Can their hearts recover? Can time apart help them move on?
“No secrets. That was the promise we’d made one another a long time ago. If we went against that, everything we’d built would begin falling apart, and I wouldn’t survive losing him in any capacity.”
Before Us…There Was Him is an incredible coming of age story. Not only do we get to see Riley and Lucas’ journey, but we get to see the changes that their friends go through as well. Smiles, tears and cheering will be only some of the things you will do while reading this book. LJ is a master at taking us on an emotional journey through life and love.
“She was my everything. My world. My heart. My soul.”
Meet the Author
Lou Stock has always lived in a world of her own, continuously lost in her imagination. Whether in the forests that backed up to her home in Aberdeen when she was only six years old. The unique landscape of Singapore she discovered at eight, or the rolling woodlands that rolled up to Dartmoor during her teen years, there have always been new worlds to explore.
Now an adult living in Oakhurst, Texas, she lives with the forest surrounding her, encouraging plenty more stories to tell. She now has too many. When she’s not writing, Lou can be found hanging out with her family—playing with her crazy cats and pup or sitting at the computer lost in the creativity of her successful graphic design business, LJDesigns.
