Synopsis (Goodreads):
Secrets and Lies…
Everyone has them. Big ones. Little ones.

For Trevor Mayne and Jamie Vaughn, secrets and lies are how they’ve made their fourteen year friendship work. Don’t talk about it. Ignore it and it won’t be real. Pretend like everything’s fine between the two of them.

Jamie can’t live like this anymore. He’s in love with Trevor, his best friend who just happens to be straight. Tired of hiding his feelings, he decides to walk away. From their friendship. From his hometown. From his business.

But before Jamie gets a chance to leave, a freak accident leaves Trevor with amnesia. A new blank perspective leaves him confused about the inconsistencies of what he’s told his life should be vs. the feelings that he knows he has. Now those secrets and lies, that should be safer than ever, are suddenly front and center and changing everything between them.

Their world is at risk because their secrets and lies aren’t the only ones at play here. There’s a bigger lie out there and it could just destroy everything as they get closer and closer to the secret hidden in depths of the Snowcroft forest.
Thoughts on Snowcroft Lost: I don't know who I felt more for in this book: Jamie for his fears that he could so easily lose everything that suddenly lands in his lap or Trevor for what he went through. (And, yes, I'm going to remain distressingly vague about a lot of things in this review because I don't want to spoil anyone.)

(attempts to find vague way of saying things. erases entire paragraph and starts again.)

So. Trevor and Jamie. Best friends. Trev's a teeny-tiny bit of a man-whore. Frankly, he goes through women like new socks and is kind of confused about that when he wakes up with no memory. Because those lusty feelings he now has for Jamie feel right. They feel right, man.

Meanwhile, Jamie has a hard time reconciling having his dreams suddenly coming true. When a man you think is straight and you have a long history with suddenly wants you the way you want him, things get complicated. And confusing. The potential for heartbreak is sky high and yet Jamie can't deny himself a taste of that dream.

Throw in an investigation, a severely homophobic family member, and more secrets than you can shake a stick at and you have a winner. *thumbs up*
