Publisher's Summary

The stories were all wrong—Hook was never the villain.

For two centuries, all of the Darling women have disappeared on their 18th birthday. Sometimes they’re gone for only a day, some a week or a month. But they always return broken. 

Now, on the afternoon of my 18th birthday, my mother is running around the house making sure all the windows are barred and the doors locked. 

But it’s pointless. 

Because when night falls, he comes for me. And this time, the Never King and the Lost Boys aren’t willing to let me go. 

NOTE: The Never King is a reimagining of Peter and Wendy. Characters have been aged up for this darker, grittier version. If you like your enemies to lovers romance with hot, ruthless, morally gray love interests, you’ll enjoy The Never King. You can expect hate kissing, fighting, bickering, and "touch her and I’ll unalive you" vibes. Book one ends on a cliff.

Loved everything!

From beginning to end this was a masterpiece!
These Lost Boys have me in a chokehold! Smut with plot and tropes that I adore! 5 stars all around!

Not that great

At first I was genuinely interested in the storyline, a dark Peter Pan with a bit of spice. Unfortunately it reads like a cheesy erotica novel. Some parts are truly cringe. Wasted potential for a really good read. Never thought I’d say the smut ruined the story but in this case it really does. The voice actors are surprisingly good.

Looking forward to this series

This is an interesting twist on the Peter Pan fairytale. Keeps you engaged and wanting to start the next book right after finishing. There's plenty of steamy scenes that are wonderfully done by talented narrators.

it's just an erotica. big waste of money

bought it thinking it was a romance and more of a darker side to the Peter pan story but its just basically a degrading erotica and wouldn't have bought it knowing that.

If you want pure sm*t here’s the book for you

I wish the characters were fleshed out more. And some scenes made me cringe. The storyline is actually really interesting but all the s*xual scenes took away from it. Basically the main character is the lost boys s*x doll but the twist is … she likes it!

I don’t though. But the plot was good enough for me to be interested in buying the next book.

Waste of time

Honestly the idea of this book seems great! I would love something like this with an actual story to it.

Meh!

I don't know if I'm interested enough in the story to use 3 of my credits on the other three books. Wjy could the four books be made into one book or a book of novellas as they are short. I enjoyed the performances though

Good listen, but needed more

I feel like I was hoping for more from this book. Not as spicy and dark as some reviews make it out to be (guess it depends what your other reads are!). Felt like it was all over really quickly. Still, a good bit of dark fun.
Narrators were good, I just didn't like Bash's voice.
Good bit of mystery to the story. Finishes on a cliffhanger so I will listen to the others to find out what happens!
