Title: Finding You
Author: Elizabeth Lee
Age Group: NA
Genre: Contemporary Romance
Scheduled to Release: 10/20/14
Being the wild child has worked for Mallory Vandaveer for most of her life. She's the good time girl, up for anything--and everyone in her small town knows it. But when her sister came home after years of being away, long hidden secrets came out.
Turns out, Mallory isn't who she thought she was. And now everything starts to feel like a lie. In order to figure out who she is she'll have to set out on a journey to find the one man who holds the answers.
Everett Boone is in hiding. Hiding from his past and the press and the demands of a career he put on hold after tragedy struck. When a young woman with secrets of her own blows into town and rents the apartment next to his, he'll have to face the past he was trying to escape in order to understand his feelings for her.
They'll both have to dig deep inside themselves to discover whether or not they're capable of being enough for one another. Finding the person you're meant to love isn't the problem. Sometimes the hardest person to find is yourself.
What a great NA story. I was floored when everything came out about Mallory in the first book. I mean floored, not only because of the truth, but because of the way it came out. Not exactly the way you want to find that truth. But..it sets her on her path, her journey to find her truths. Along this way, she finds Boone. I laughed at their interactions. They were so.. odd. It is the best way to describe it. But it was such a beautiful love story. When he went back on tour, I honestly thought Elizabeth was going to leave me broken. Leave me wanting more for these two. But then, Mal makes the ultimate gesture. I loved it.
Elizabeth does a great job of writing such beautiful love stories. They have just enough personal drama to keep you addicted, but not overwhelm the over all story of the relationship itself. And she has this way of just getting you so involved in the story, you don't realize you have read the majority of it, until it's almost over.
I give this book 4 hearts
Genre: Contemporary Romance
All she wanted to do was forget. Forget the memory of walking in on her boyfriend in the middle of, well, another girl. Forget how she had her entire life planned out. And, forget about being perfect all the time. Unfortunately, she was Whitney Vandaveer and despite the fact that she moved to the middle of nowhere – she couldn't.
He always knew he would never be more than nothing. No job, no money, no future. Cole Pritchett had accepted the fact that he would always be the screw up and he was okay with it. Until he met her. Here's the thing they quickly found out – sometimes we all need a little help escaping who we think we are.
I'm going to admit, I started this book kind of not liking Whitney. She just sounded so conceited and so stuck up with how she talked about her life with her dad. I know it wasn't her fault, but she did sound like the prissy one. And at first, I didn't think she was going to adjust well to where her sister and mom live, but boy was I wrong. Mal sure did bring her right in, didn't she. Then we get to see the real Whitney. The one she hid from everyone, because she was trying to be someone else. And I really liked her. I really like her with Cole. I liked how they brought out the goodness in each other.
I love the way Elizabeth writes. She just gets me all involved in the story and i feel what the characters are going through. And I love how her stories are about the characters finding themselves, and love at the same time.
I give this book 4 hearts.
Born and raised in the
middle of a Midwestern cornfield (not literally, that would be weird), I’ve
spent my entire life imagining stories. Stories where the right guy always gets
the right girl, first kisses are as magical as they are on the big screen and
anything is completely possible if you believe.
Although this journey
began years ago, it recently took on a whole new life. After years of devouring
hundreds of Romance, YA and New Adult novels, I had an epiphany... I should
write a book. And I did it!
If I’m not reading, writing, enjoying drinks with my amazing group of
girlfriends or chasing around a sarcastically funny kid, I’m probably watching
television shows that were created for teenagers, while my husband teases that
I’m too old to watch them.
