Robert McClellan was forced to serve as a soldier in a war he didn’t understand. Liberated by McKay-Taggart, he struggles every day to reclaim the life he lost and do right by the men he calls his brothers, The Lost Boys. Only one thing is more important – Ariel Adisa. The gorgeous psychologist has plagued his dreams since the day they met. Even as their mission pushes him to his limits, he can’t stop thinking about taking his shot at finding a life beyond all this with her.
Ariel Adisa is a force to be reckoned with. Her performance in Toronto proved she’s more than just a brilliant mind, but Robert still acts as if she is a wilting flower who needs his protection. Joining him on the mission to Munich should be the perfect opportunity to test their skills and cement their relationship. She and Robert are an excellent match. But when a stunning secret from Robert’s past is revealed, their world is turned upside down and nothing will ever be the same again.
While they chase dark secrets across Europe, Robert and Ariel realize that the only thing worse than not knowing who you are could be discovering who you used to be...
The Action and Suspense Continue
Lexi Blake's Masters and Mercenaries: The Forgotten series is winning big with me. Not only is each book a look into the 'after' for each of the Lost Boys, men that have been rescued from the clutches of Dr. Hope McDonald, but there is romance and suspense galore, plus the very Lexi stamp on each one that makes them all fantastic.
Robert McLellan and Ariel Adisa have a deep connection, one that Robert is afraid to explore, and Ari can't wait to pursue. Burdened by the things he was forced to do while under Dr. McDonald's control, and unable to remember his life before, Robert wants to protect Ari by keeping her at a distance. Ari, though, is definitely more than able to hold her own, with a past that has made her the strong woman that she is. When the two are paired to go on a mission to Munich, facts about Robert and the other Lost Boys become known, and the foundation is laid for more revelation as the series continues to unfold.
Like all of Lexi's books, LOST IN YOU is a sort of team event, in that, not only is the focus on the main characters, but on all of those that support them, as well, giving readers the opportunity to get to know everyone. This is a big help for me personally, because there are just so many of them, and this keeps everything fresh for me. This book can be read as a standalone, but it truly does help to have read the original series, as well as previous books in this one, to understand what's what. That being said, LOST IN YOU, like the rest of Lexi's books, is non-stop action and suspense, with plenty of romance and serious steam to boot. 4.5 stars for this one...I can't wait to see what's coming next for the team.
Lexi continues to wring every emotion form me with each book! I love the ride and anxiously await the next trip! 💜
Left Me Wanting for More!

Lost in You
Kindle Loc. 201
This is what I look for in Lexi Blake’s stories—the hidden wisdom (an Easter egg if you will)—spoken through the character, but meant for the reader. Sighs.
Lost in You is the third installment of Lexi Blake’s The Forgotten series and focuses on Lost Boy Robert McClellan and the love story between him and psychotherapist Ariel Adisa. As with all of the books in this series, it is not a standalone. Any reader new to the series is well advised to read (at the very least) the two prior The Forgotten novels. I’ve read all of Lexi’s fabulous Masters & Mercenaries series, and even with all that, it took me a good thirty percent of the book before I could settle in and just read the story. And this story is one great ride!
Both Robert and Ariel are well-written—the reader gets into their heads quickly. The story is full of action and packed with some serious espionage thrill. Characters from Dallas and London return to aid Robert and Adisa, and finally, one huge secret is revealed (my lips are sealed). My only disappointment is the way it ended—without spoiling, let me say that I felt there was more to Robert’s story that should have played out in this book.
Lexi Blake fans will love this installment. I certainly did.
