Lost In The Shadows was a great read. With the worst kind of villains and the best kind of hero.

This book definitely has some dark situations in it, but the hero and heroine stand out in this one.
Damien was determined, he was protective and he was all around a stand up guy wanting to bring down the bad guys. When he meets Penelope, it's not flowers and roses instead its danger and despair and I couldn't stop reading.

There are some truly heartbreaking moments in this book along with some momen

HOLY CRAP!! HOW HAVE I NOT HEARD OF THIS SERIES?! Lost in the Shadows is the third book in the Lost Series, and I was lucky enough to receive an ARC. I don't know WHAT I was expecting when I started this book, but I am absolutely captivated by Tracie Douglas and her amazing writing skill, and the story she was able to weave. Reading the first two books in the series probably would have been helpful (getting on that ASAP) but it wasn't necessary for me. There's enough background, without giving t

The Dizzy persona he has adopted to help him through life wont help him now. Now he's Tony, that is until he is Damien. Wearing so many hats gets exhausting but first he has to make it through the assignment. . . alive. This series is amazing and so is this authors ability to tell a tale so emotional and intense with these the perfect characters is just awesome sauce. Penny is not what you expect. After what she has narrowly avoided to be with Tony and be as much a help to his healing as she is ...more

Have you ever read a book that made you want to bust out in song while crying at the same damn time??? Yeah.... that was me with this one. This was my first read from Tracie and I can’t believe how hard she’s rocked my soul. Dizzy and Penelope were phenomenal like I don’t think I’ve falling in love with a couple this hard since my 1st Kristen Ashley book. This story is hard and it’s gritty but the love and fight that the characters go through is literally a masterpiece. I don’t know where Tracie ...more

Amazing!! This book has it all, Bad guys,hero’s and love. The connection Damian and Penny had was superb. It’s twisted dark and edgy! Recommend Read and definitely a five star review.

My first book from Tracie Douglas and will not be the last! This book had me crying, smiling, sobbing and shouting! It had everything, two broken souls finding solace and light in each other was captured perfectly, and the story was so amazingly written, yes it’s quite dark but so so worth it!!

Holy Hell this book was the best so far forbthis series. Each book keeps getting better and better. In the previous books there was some dark subject matter that was covered. But this one has the darkest subjects.
I was sucked in from page one. I just wanted to grab Penny and hide her away to keep her safe. And Damien, well you feel what he is struggling with internally from the start. These two are both damaged, but they both are survivors. It takes them finding each other and giving into their

My head and heart is in a spin

I have absolutely loved this series so far (in the hope that there is more to come!).
I have loved these beautifully broken men who fall hard and fast for the special women in their life's. Women who have experienced traumas of their own. They each believe that they do not deserve the light that these amazing women bring to their lives and each if them broke my heart a little more than the last.....but this......this book I think completely broke me before carefully

Damien is so stuck in the shadows, he thinks he is undeserving of love and family. Then in the most unlikely of places, he finds an angel. Penny has been sold into slavery by her stepfather and has changed hands several times. Fortunately she is very valuable as a virgin. Damien immediately makes a play to keep her for himself but only to get her to safety. Before they know it, things go sideways and he cannot bring himself to let her go. But the evil that meant to destroy Penny isn't through wi ...more

Title: Lost in the Shadows
Author: Tracie Douglas
Genre: Contemporary Adult Romance with Triggers

I didn't think I would like this book but it was a pretty good book. There are triggers so be warned. I was a tad disappointed the author glossed over the sexual abuse Penny endured. You get the impression and then when it is confirmed it is glossed over. That abuse is a big part of who she is. It is a big part of the story. Yes she was technically a virgin but she was still abused and then sold. Then

Great read!

I loved Dizzy. He was so well written. Penny was a little off for me as a young woman who leaves another country and has no accent and is so mouthy after what she's been through. The pace just goes a little fast for what seems to need more time for the transformation of Penny to the girl she is.

Wow, what a roller-coaster.

I laughed
I cried
I had my heat broken
And put back together again.

And all of that in the span of the first 25% of the book.

A beautiful story with heartbreaking characters, that come to life right before your eyes. Bring on the next book.

Lost in the Shadows by Tracie Douglas is book 3 in The Lost Series, a crime family romantic suspense series.
This was a great read, I don't tend to read a lot of mafia or family books but as this one was more about the victims then the mob family, I enjoyed reading it. Even though it is part of a series with interlocking characters, it can be read as a standalone.
I loved so much about this book, The espionage, the cat and mouse games, it has awesome plot twists and some great characters.

Loved this kind of backwards romace story

This being the 3rd book in the series I recommend reading the first 2 because not only are they good too but you have a better understanding of the story at the beginning and of the other characters in it. This story is about Penelope and Damien. We are all shaped by our past and it plays a big part in the emotional issues these chahave in this story. This is also not your typical romance story as in that it starts out being thrown together. I really enjo

By far the best one of the series! I fell in love with Penny and Dizzy right away. The first book to make me cry and laugh at the same time. I am looking forward to the next one!

Lost in the Shadows

This book is filled with darker material that if written any other way than the author did may have been too much to handle. Tracie Douglas crafted a world in her Lost series that leaves the reader satisfied to the final page.
