Mallory's world has crumbled and she doesn't know who she is anymore. She decides to move away from home to go after her past. She may find more that she has bargained for. One rule she has for her life is to avoid complications and emotional entangles. Boone seems like all that and more. How will she keep away from temptation, when her body is hot-wired to his?
Boone has been running away from his past for the last three years. In fact, he has put his life on hold and has been only surviving one day at time. Hurricane "Molly" doesn't fit into his equation, but his traitorous heart doesn't get the memo. How to keep things simple, when life is so messy?
Finding You it's the perfect romance to read. The love story is beautiful without being corny, characters are multi-layered without being overly complicated, conflicts are well thought-out without being overly dramatic, and the climax is intense and breathtaking, without taking your belief in love away.
Ms. Lee knows her craft and does it well. Her plot is clean, with no weak points and perfect cohesively and her characters are easy to love, relate and connect. Ms. Lee's passionate scenes are classy but hot, and her hero is mouth-watering.
You may read Finding You because is romantic and thrilling. You should read Finding You because it will keep you guessing, but it won't crush your hope for love. You must read Finding You if you want to be awed and dazzled.
