Review: Found Underneath
Found Underneath (Finding Me Book 2) - KL Kreig

This is the exciting and long-awaited conclusion to the Finding Me series. The story picks up from where book one ended. In the previous book, Shaw Mercer had hired Willow Blackwell to be his fake girlfriend to help bolster his father’s re-election. Along the way the unthinkable happened, they developed feelings for each other. Shaw was not the type of person who believes in monogamous relationships so you can imagine how he struggled when he tries to reconcile his feelings with his beliefs. Willow has experienced pain and her way of dealing with it is to push away those who care for her. This was the reason for her ending her engagement a few years ago. Shaw Mercer stirred up emotions she thought was dead and buried and she did not understand how to handle these feelings. However, one thing was certain, no matter the fears; their love for each other was undeniable. Just as it seems they were both coming to terms with their feelings, a tragedy from the past was determined to derail their relationship.

Shaw is a domineering alpha and is used to getting what he wants. Women fall at his feet every chance they get, however only one woman has the power to bring him to his knees. He will do anything to have her stay in his life, even if it meant keeping the truth from her. I understood his need to protect her, but keeping the truth from her, not a good idea. He would discover the devastating impact that secrets have on relationships. Willow also played her part in keeping secrets in their relationship. I have to admit their actions were frustrating, which made wish I could knock some sense into them. Despite this, I enjoyed their interaction with each other. Their chemistry was undeniable, and they complemented each other perfectly. His patience in the midst of her stubbornness was commendable. It demonstrated the depth of his feelings for her.

Willow is a complex character. I admired her strength in the face of adversity and her willingness to forgive. Even though her actions were frustrating, I understood her unwillingness to trust and give herself completely to Shaw. Trusting your heart to someone can be scary, especially if you have experience loss in the past.

The secondary characters brought their own brand of flavour to the story. Willow’s best friend and roommate was a riot. She speaks her mind without apology. Her acerbic tongue had the power to cut a grown man down to size. I was not a fan of Willow’s ex-fiancée. He is determined to get her back, and he will play dirty to accomplish his wish. What he failed to realise is that such actions have far-reaching repercussions.

It's hard to explain the impact this story had on me. I enjoyed Lost in Between and I expected that Found Underneath would be no less enjoyable. What I did not expect was the emotional wringer I experienced. I read this in one sitting, there was no way I could put this down without finding out how the events would unfold.

The writing was beautiful, which made it easy to connect with the story. The flow was perfect, the pacing ideal and the descriptions vivid. It made me feel as if I were a part of the characters' lives. I felt every emotion that permeated the pages of this beautiful story. The books are lengthy but, it was worth every moment spent reading this story about family, love, healing and forgiveness, which delivered a satisfying and solid ending.

Overall, I enjoyed this conclusion to the Finding Me Series. It is funny, sad and addictive. If you enjoy romance that sizzles and engages your emotions then you will like this series.

Finding You, Finding Me - Bailey Queen

This is the perfect example how things that start out meh can turn into something utterly marvelous. When I read that Kleypas-y beginning I felt like rolling my eyes six ways to sunday. I thought this was going to become my next big mistake.

Only it wasn’t.



Yes, I’m pretty lame myself, choosing a book with a guy with retrograde amnesia. I plead guilty. The plot says it all: simple, obvious and straight to the point. The character is in a situation of vulnerability and lacking all the social and personal inhibitions that used to stop him from showing his real emotions. But once that obstacle disappears, there is only the raw longings and desires. And the object of such desire is… Yes! The other guy! As it should be.

Everything had a specific path and it was already written. Predictable, silly, definitely entertaining and of course with some PWP sex. Sounded like a plan!

I even made some popcorn. I was ready.

Only I wasn’t.

So, if you are looking for that book, you better start running now, because this is not a book for you.

This book lied to me on page 1 and I’m glad of that.

This book hides a beautiful story of two men with the enemies’ shots flying over their heads. This book is about jumping from planes and crashing into the ground and shutting down that afraid little voice in your head that begs you not to jump. This books is about weeks in the cold trenches in the middle of winter, with food running short, with supplies at the minimum and with only a dimming little hope to enlighten their hears. A hope that they will make it to Christmas, to the end of the hell on Earth. This book is about those liberty days secluded in a room and scratching a moment here and there. A one more moment together. A moment together alive. And about comradeship and death.

It’s not a heavy book, and it’s not long, either. But it’s definitely not the cheap version I pictured in my head when I decided to pick it up. Don’t let that cover fool you, it’s more epic than that. It’s much more than the amnesia easy plot. It’s of course not a PWP novel. The ending surprised me, in a good way.

It’s worth reading.

Embrace Your True Self
Finding Me - Dawn Brazil

I received an e-copy of the book from the author, via Goodreads, in exchange for an honest review.

 

Dawn Brazil’s Finding Me was like a reading about a young group of the Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. Except these supernaturals has a member with amnesia.

 

Finding Me was a creative spin on time travel and supernaturals. Brazil’s tale centers around a young girl who doesn’t remember she’s supernatural. She doesn’t remember anything about her life other than she’s a normal teen with a pretend boyfriend, snobby parents and snooty friends at an exclusive school. Once I got past all the name dropping (Louis Vuitton, Christian Louboutin, etc.), the story was good. Chloe wasn’t a fan of all the big designer names. It was the world she lived in and Brazil attempted to reveal that to readers. I think she succeeded especially when the seventeen year old received a brand new sports car for a birthday present.

 

Chloe and The Great 8 are fighting an enemy they’ve known all their life. Unfortunately, she doesn’t remember the enemy until the last quarter of the book. Her memories start flooding back and now we get a major cliffhanger.

 

Brazil wrote a hopeful story with a clear, positive message–when you embrace who you are, you’re unstoppable! That’s a great message for everyone and not just teens. I look forward to reading the next installment by Brazil.
