I wasn't sure what to expect from this book as the description was so vague, but I was intrigued and it was only 99p so I thought I'd try it! It is quite dark at times, but it shows how this girl, abducted at 2, finds her way through life, her coping mechanisms, her ocd, anxiety attacks, 'the lonely' makes being 'journal's a far away dream, but then someone comes into her life who knows her darkest secrets and changes her life forever. She has a lot to come to terms with from her past and for her future and the person from her past has as many issues. She also has this 'benefactor' who has come forward and given her a driver, paid for her to go to college and live, but he is controlling and a bit scary, she doesn't know who he is, but she has to trust that he has her best interests at heart, but it certainly begins to look like his intentions are anything but good, she finds herself abducted once more, facing her worst fears of dirt, dark and 'the lonely' just when she feels she has nothing more to lose, nothing left to live for, her world is turned on its head, but can she come back from it?

This book has completely blown me away not what I was expecting at all. There were so many twists and turns my head was spinning. I can't ever imagine goin thro life like Emalynn/Sarah being afraid of everything having your life ruled by her own compulsive behaviour. At the beginning of this book she was scared of everything and everyone with only her friend shell, Stuart and her mysterious benefactor to rely on. As the book goes we learn what she had been through and her behaviour makes sense. I thought I had sussed out who her benefactor was but got it completely wrong. Can't really say much more without spoiling it for anyone who hasn't read the book. You need to read this book absolutely amazing.

I absolutely love the way Tara Brown writes! I had the same feelings as Em crying when she left Sebastian the first time hating Eli yet feeling drawn to him and the day after I started the book I went buying some wipes and hand sanitizer! Didn't wanna put it down desperately wanted to see what happened with every single character not just the main one. Wasn't a boring moment twists and turns to the storyline that keep you to grips with it! Wish I had a best friend like Michelle someone who doesn't judge yet tells you if you're being an idiot. Addicted to Tara Brown she deserves more credit!

The Lonely is such a heart wrenching story. I feel for Em so much. It was not what I expected at all as I don't normally read the romance genre but it is a brilliant read it is so fast paced I couldn't put it down!
It is written so well that you feel all of ems emotions.
The sexy racy parts are just a perfect balance not enough that it takes over the whole story but enough to keep fifty shades of grey fans reading!

I enjoyed this book once all the jumbling around thoughts stopped however felt it was very rushed and ended short.

I normally read a book several times and was really looking forward to this book due to the good reviews however im now left wondering why its warranted such good review. Not one I will be rushing to read again in a hurry which is a shame because this book could have been great.

This book was entirely unexpected. There were so many levels to the story and not your typical romance. It very cleverly lifted the veil on the past to lead to you to realise why the characters are in their current mindset. The back story is surprising as the hints of the past never let you think the story is going to be as it appears. Loved its unconventional plot.

"No wonder the summary was so vague. it doesn't even begin to describe this book. I can't even say anything about this book as it will give away spoilers. Nothing like a typical college type book n not what you expect. although I question one of Em`s descisions towards the end of the book. A definately must read."

I already love books by Tara brown, but this one stands out from the rest.
Compared to the norm of supernatural romance novels this is a complete change of pace.
Emalyn is a college girl with a troubled past and a major OCD problem, until her benefactor turns out to be so much more than what he seems. Reliving a memory she thought she had shut down and finding her real identity becomes the making of her.
A truly romantic and quite kinky romance that is truly heartwarming. Another great book Tara :)

Wow this author can write an amazing story!! I was absolutely addicted from the very beginning. I am most definitely going to be re-reading this story again in the near future.

I'm not going to say much about the storyline as the blurb gives a fantastic description and there is a fabulous twist part way through the story that I don't want to accidently give away in spoilers. What I will say is that the characters are absolutely brilliant and this book is an amazing love story.

The second book is the lost boy, which is this book but written from the other main character's point of view and is also absolutely fantastic. I don't usually like reading the same book but from a different point of view, but the lost boy gives so much more than we don't get in this book.

Two amazing books, that I highly recommend. Out if the nearly 200 books I've read this year, these two are right up their with my favourites.
