Publisher's Summary

When two people's lives are spiraling out of control, can coming together pull both of them back up?

Alexis Woods knows who she is - or at least, she thought she did. She's number 17, point guard, MVP, all-star, co-captain of the Lady Raiders NCAA Division I women's basketball team. But there's a darkness growing inside of her, a darkness that started the night her beloved died in her arms, and if she doesn't turn things around soon, the darkness just might swallow her whole.

Graham Griffin knows a thing or two about darkness. That's been her zip code ever since the car accident that took her boyfriend's life - the car accident she caused. When she meets Alex, she sees a reflection of her own sorrow. And she can't help but want to fix it.

A Cathartic Joy

This author is expressive and articulate. In "To Have Loved & Lost", she draws you into a deep relationship-oriented plot line. Her beautiful, flawed, tough and sensitive characters are raw, deep, and happen to be lesbian. It is wonderful and realistic how the characters being lesbian isn't the main focus of the book and being lesbian isn't their identity, but just a piece of who they are. I find it refreshing to discover an author, who can portray real women in real friendships as real people. Thank you, Eliza Andrews! I HIGHLY recommend this author and her first book categorized as LGBT fiction. Hopefully, it will encourage, warm, thrill, and entertain other readers as much as it did me!

Sleeper Hit!

Bought this title because none of my favorite authors had anything new out. I was pleasantly surprised. Good writing, lovely story, well fleshed out characters--a lovely journey.
Narrator was talented and well suited for the story. I was very pleased. I hope to hear much, much more from this author and narrator.

Great Book!

This is a great love story. I know the LGBT community would love it but I also think straight people would enjoy it. You forget the story is about two women and it becomes a story about how two people finding each other and growing together. It's a simple message that we all have baggage but when you find the right person, it doesn't matter. Loved it!

The title is perfect!!

This was a great book filled with all the feels and the excitement of basketball as well. I love sports but don’t get to watch it much, so this was very enjoyable to follow Alex in her venture. The love and loss for all the characters was a big challenge for them but they soon find peace within each other. I’m so glad that Eliza write this book and I hope she will write more lgbt+ books :)

Wounded Warrior Goddess Meets Princess

Darkness in her soul is leading Alexis Woods to drink too much and putting her college basketball career in jeopardy. Forced into therapy she meets Graham Griffin who also has darkness surrounding her eyes. Two women search for relief and healing. Great performance and story. Strongly recommend.

Great lesbian romance novel!

One of the better lesbian romance novels I’ve listened to. It’s believable and the author makes you feel like you’re in the book. The storyline keeps your attention and I never got bored with it. The only slight downside is the few intimate scenes. Maybe I’m greedy but with how good the author writes, I’m sure she could have tossed a few more wild encounters in there. Other than that, the story is awesome!

Written and narrated beautifully...

I wish I wasn’t reviewing so late, I finished this book in a day. I’d leave a much in depth review if I weren’t so tired. Listen to this book. The narration was the best I’ve listened too. The story, impeccably written. Great representation of the LGBTQ. Thank you Eliza Andrews and Angela Rysk.

One of the best lesbian YA romance novels ever!

Great novel with so much depth and realness to the characters! SOOOO relatable and well written! I initially hesitated because I'm not a big fan of sports, but at no point in the book was the incorporation of a college basketball team a turnoff. Can't wait to read the next book in this duology!

Wow.

I listen to a lot of audiobooks and read an embarrassing number of lesbian novels. I'd consider myself a connoisseur of lesbian stories of all kinds. To Have Loved & Lost is, hands down, one of the top 5 stories I've come across. The characters are engaging. The story is well written, well paced. It was distractingly good -- I didn't want to stop listening and rushed back as soon as I could. I loved the fact that the characters were fully developed beyond the fact that they were both women. Too often lesbian-focused stories keep coming back to the fact that the characters are both female instead of two humans learning and loving each other. Andrews gets it -- she's lived it and her writing shows it. I don't feel this review is really doing this story justice but trust me when I say this is definitely worth the listen. Oh yeah -- the narrator's voice is damn sexy. She could be reading the dictionary and I would listen to every word. It's the rasp. One more thing -- listen to the end. I already loved the book and then the author's note (I'm not sure what else to call it) made me love it even more. Representation matters. We all deserve to have our stories heard. Just listen to the book and thank me later.
