Cue: Lost Boy by Ruth B
“𝐅𝐥𝐲 𝐚𝐰𝐚𝐲, 𝐥𝐨𝐬𝐭 𝐛𝐨𝐲. 𝐈’𝐦 𝐧𝐨𝐭 𝐥𝐨𝐨𝐤𝐢𝐧𝐠 𝐟𝐨𝐫 𝐭𝐡𝐚𝐭 𝐤𝐢𝐧𝐝 𝐨𝐟 𝐭𝐫𝐨𝐮𝐛𝐥𝐞.”
Maybe it’s my love of Disney or my desire to escape to Neverland. Maybe it’s the intrigue of lost boys or the idea of flying into an adventure but I think the real reason I couldn’t put this book down was because Jenny Hickman’s writing is magical. This fresh, modern take on a Peter Pan re-telling is a world of fantasy and romance with a hint of science fiction and to me was one of my favorite reads of 2020 as well as one of my favorite stories of all time. Yes, you heard me right.
“𝐘𝐨𝐮 𝐚𝐧𝐝 𝐈 𝐬𝐡𝐨𝐮𝐥𝐝 𝐠𝐞𝐭 𝐢𝐧𝐭𝐨 𝐭𝐫𝐨𝐮𝐛𝐥𝐞 𝐭𝐨𝐠𝐞𝐭𝐡𝐞𝐫,” 𝐡𝐞 𝐬𝐚𝐢𝐝 𝐚𝐠𝐚𝐢𝐧𝐬𝐭 𝐡𝐞𝐫 𝐬𝐡𝐨𝐮𝐥𝐝𝐞𝐫 “𝐃𝐞𝐚𝐜𝐨𝐧…” 𝐡𝐢𝐬 𝐧𝐚𝐦𝐞 𝐰𝐚𝐬 𝐚 𝐬𝐢𝐠𝐡 𝐨𝐧 𝐡𝐞𝐫 𝐥𝐢𝐩𝐬.
Deacon is our leading lost boy with a naughty side so steamy that I would have gone to Neverland with him without even learning his name. Vivienne is our witty, strong-willed leading lady who finds herself landing in Deacon’s world as fantastical stories become reality. The reality is though that H.O.O.K is after her and the stakes are high. It’s fight or flight.
“𝐂𝐨𝐦𝐞 𝐰𝐢𝐭𝐡 𝐦𝐞 𝐭𝐨 𝐍𝐞𝐯𝐞𝐫𝐥𝐚𝐧𝐝, 𝐕𝐢𝐯𝐢𝐞𝐧𝐧𝐞. 𝐈 𝐩𝐫𝐨𝐦𝐢𝐬𝐞 𝐲𝐨𝐮 𝐰𝐨𝐧’𝐭 𝐫𝐞𝐠𝐫𝐞𝐭 𝐢𝐭.”
I might be 31 but I’m still hoping I have an Active Nevergene so I can be whisked away to Neverland. The minute I finished this book, I tossed everything else aside to read my ARC of the sequel, The HOOK where the stakes are higher and meeting Peter Pan does not disappoint. Buy it now. Revel in it with me. Become a member of The PANdom now!

Oh Hi! I’m Krysten (@ladyofbookshire). Wife. Mom to two fur-babies. Lover of Fiction, Fantasy, Romance and I spend every day (almost) trying to make Romantasy an actual genre. It’s my favorite. I call sunny Orlando, Florida home. That’s right… i’m 15 minutes from Disney World. I mainly only text in GIFs. I have a ridiculous sweet tooth. I’m originally from Maryland. The only thing I may love more than reading is coffee… this is still up for debate. I’m passionate about finding new stories and sharing them with others and am always open to having a reading conversation. Not a fan of love triangles unless they are done really well and I love dark romance… especially a dark romantasy. That genre will always call to my heart.
