Little Boy Lost: Book Five
Finally together, Brian McAllister and Jamie Mayfield have risked everything in a desperate escape. Jamie is now free of his tormentor, Steven O’Dell… for the moment. But Brian and Jamie know that one wrong choice could lead Steven to their door.
With the strength of Brian and his friends to protect him, Jamie hides and finds the one person he is truly afraid of—himself. The long, lonely hours in the place Leo found for them to stay leave Jamie with nothing to do but think. He thinks about Brian, about the direction their lives should take. He thinks about his parents, about the industry he left behind. Mostly, though, he thinks about drugs. Jamie wants to feel good again, forget about his self-hatred, and stop the gnawing cravings that prey upon his mind and body even as he tries to start a new life with Brian.
One moment of weakness may prove to be fatal for them both.

All throughout my reading of Escaped, the fifth book in JP Barnaby’s Little Boy Lost series, I had one line running through my head. That phrase is simply two steps forward and one back. Then it would switch to one step forward and two steps back. Finally, it switched back. Brian and Jamie have come a long way, but with everything Jamie has suffered over the last two-plus years, he has so many miles still to travel.
For the first time since Abandoned, I shed actual tears for Jamie and Brian. My heart has broken too many times to count in reading these five books. However, so far only Abandoned has made me ugly cry. Escaped was close, however.
I am not giving you much in the way of plot summaries in these reviews because you can get those just by reading the blurbs. Anything else, you should read the series to find out. And yes, you need to read this series.
Previously, I have had to take breaks between a few of the titles. However, this time I don’t think I could stand to take a break. As soon as I finish this review, I will be starting Sacrificed. I need Jamie and Brian to be okay.
This review is based on a copy purchased by the reviewer independent of any review copies offered.
