A Woman Lost (A Woman Lost #1) by T.B. Markinson

 DNF! DNF! DNF! And will never finish this one.

Elizabeth (Lizzie) Petrie is not flawed or funny, she is just plain disgusting and horrible. She is lusting after her brother's fiancée, Maddie; she is pushing away and leading on her very loving, understanding, trusting and romantic girlfriend, Sarah, at the same time; she is trying to and wanting to cheat Sarah; she makes a pass at Maddie; she lies to Sarah throughout; she only stops pursuing Maddie when Maddie slaps (physically) rejection in her face when she makes a pass at her; she decides she wants Sarah back in her life only after Maddie rejects her and Lizzie seems to be scared of being alone (so not exactly for love); she makes zero effort to get Sarah (whom she has hurt terribly all through their relationship and especially in the end) back or make amends. And yes, she seems to be emotionally leeching off her best friend, Ethan. 

We first read a book that comes much later in the series and were curious about how the romance between Sarah and Lizzie started. Plus we found Maddie interesting and wanted to know more about her. Yet, despite know how it has turned out in the future, we just couldn’t read this book.

Written around a single MC, Lizzie, this is a book and series supposedly tracing her growing up. But she is so utterly awful in this first book that we are assuredly NOT reading the rest of the series.

As much as we read, we were constantly hurting – emotionally and physically – for Sarah, who is a beautiful woman definitely not deserving of a dastard like Lizzie. We do not want to know more about this wonder woman remaining with the awful Lizzie and creating a family together over the series.

This is s definitely not for us or for anyone who has the slightest shard of belief in love or romance.

(We are so utterly repulsed by Lizzie that we can’t bring ourselves to give it any sort of star rating…a first for us.)
