About the Author: Tara Brown

I believe growing up in a really small town gives a person a little advantage when it comes to the imagination You need one or you go mad.Needless to say, mine saved me After it got me into trouble first, that is That s the problem with a vivid imagination, all the lies you tell.According to my age, I am meant to be a responsible adult, but it isn t going well at all I would still head off to Hogwarts tomorrow and I suspect there isn t a single wardrobe I haven t crept into, hoping to find the door to Narnia And don t even get me started on the King s Road, I get lost.Fortunately, I am an international bestseller so I have wormed my way into a quirky or eccentric category.Thank God for that.I am happily married with two daughters.I have two giant dogs, two savage cats, and a penchant for a glass of red.I am represented by Natalie Lakosil from the Bradford Literary Agency and am published traditionally with Montlake Romance and Skyscape Publishing.

    5 Heart Wrenching StarsThis is the companion novel to The Lonely which you should read first To be inside Eli s head was awesome He was so lost and broken and so very in love with Sarah This finishes past the point of the first book and ties everything up beautifully Would be good if Stuart had a book These two books are on my keeper list for sure Dark and intense but love wins in the end.

    Lost Boy was a great follow up probably better than the first book The Lonely The first book is told from the girl s POV, Sarah, and the second is the guy s, Eli It really is like two different books from each of their perspectives Not much repeating here What I really liked better with this book is the way the ending was handled not nearly as tedious and this one had a delicious Epilogue that gave us a glimpse at everyone s story, not just Eli and Sarah s.Certain parts of these books Lost Boy was a great follow up probably better than the first book The Lonely The first book is told from the girl s POV, Sarah, and the second is the guy s, Eli It really is like two different books from each of their perspectives Not much repeating here What I really liked better with this book is the way the ending was handled not nearly as tedious and this one had a delicious Epilogue that gave us a glimpse at everyone s story, not just Eli and Sarah s.Certain parts of these books are fairly dark Both of these main characters were abducted when they were children and faced many horrors And, their adult lives are almost just as horrible trying to deal with the memories and psychological problems that came from their abductions But, in the end they were both strong enough to heal each other as much as they could ever be healed.The writer, Tara Brown, did a wonderful job handling the complex situations presented in these books I would definitely read another book authored by her And, you know, there are enough tormented characters left in these two books that another one might be possible i.e., Stuart

    3.5I m so torn as to how to rate this one I cannot express how much I was anticipating Getting Eli s POV There was so much I wanted to know about what had been happening behind the scenes in The Lonely, and I wanted this tobe my holy grail of explanations Unfortunately, I didn t feel like I understood all thatafter finishing this book Don t get me wrong, I enjoyed it Eli was a character I both loved and hated in the first book, and learned to love evenin this one I just wanted 3.5I m so torn as to how to rate this one I cannot express how much I was anticipating Getting Eli s POV There was so much I wanted to know about what had been happening behind the scenes in The Lonely, and I wanted this tobe my holy grail of explanations Unfortunately, I didn t feel like I understood all thatafter finishing this book Don t get me wrong, I enjoyed it Eli was a character I both loved and hated in the first book, and learned to love evenin this one I just wanted to give the poor guy a hug I think he wasmessed up then poor Sarah I just wanted to understandabout his issues, and the way he coped before finding Sarah, about that bithch Jane, and a better explanation of what the theory behind her therapy was I wantedabout how Eli could go through with it And geez, way to raisequestions, about Sebastian and Stewart Overall It was a good book, and I would defiantly recommend it for fans of The Lonely, just don t expect to come out for it with a lot of loose ends tied up

    4.5stars Still as weird as book one but I loved Eli s story. I needed to skim through The Lonely first otherwise I would have been The Lost One Once I had reacquainted myself with the story it was all good I said at the end of the last book I was looking forward to getting into Eli s head and I wasn t disappointed X
