Lost Boy by Ker Dukey. ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

Lost Boy by Ker Dukey

My rating: 5 of 5 stars.

When Willis Langford, the infamous serial killer, dubbed the Hollywell Slayer, enters Lizzy West’s life, he leaves blood and pain in his wake—kidnapping his son, her best friend, Jack, and killing those who try to stop him.


After witnessing unimaginable evil, the echoes of that day haunt Lizzy into adulthood.


Fifteen years later, Willis is still at large. When new bodies start to pop up with the infamous Hollywell Slayer’s signature written all over them, Lizzy’s life turns upside down.


Death now stalking her at every turn, Lizzy isn’t prepared for a ruggedly handsome mystery man, Clark entering her life, making her question everything she thought she knew. The intensity between them is palpable, but there’s something that isn’t adding up, and one thing Lizzy knows all too well, monsters don’t lie in wait. They hunt you out.


Life is a game of survival.


But who is the hunter and who is the prey?


This is a psychological romantic suspense standalone title.

The setting: Chicago

The Hero: Clark – Recently moved in upstairs from Lizzy and Charlotte who both work at the local coffee shop and attend college. Clark is always watching Lizzy and showing up where she is.

The heroine: Lizzy – only months apart in age and brought up together by single mothers, Lizzy and Jack were best friends. Jack is kidnapped by serial killer Willis Langford (his father) when they are eight years old. However, Lizzy still relives the trauma in nightmares and anxiety and Willis Langford was never caught.

The Love Story: Lizzy has been having fantasies about the new neighbor upstairs and when he seeks her out they find they are attracted to each other and share a connection.

I loved the darkness, mystery, and suspense that this book contained. It was pretty romantic, but also somewhat scary and a bit crazy too. I also loved the supporting characters. Charlotte was a hoot, especially in dealings between her and Lizzy’s friend Steven.

I like serial killer books when they are mixed with romance because you just never know who is a good guy and who is a bad guy (or girl). This book was romantic, steamy and quite unpredictable. I loved every minute of it. I wished it were longer.

I voluntarily read & reviewed an advanced copy of this book. All thoughts & opinions are my own.
