Sexy, Wild and Untamed!

We met Mallory, Whitney's younger sister, in Escaping Me. The bar hoping, trash talking feisty little southern girl who had her life change when she found out her mother had had an affair. That one night changed everything, her parents divorce and the little fact that the man she had thought all those years to be her father, wasn't.

This is her story. She has decided that she wants to get to know the man who fathered her, and why he just
Me gustó muchísimo! Si, no fue nada que me sorprendiese totalmente pero es una historia que se lee fácil y nunca deja de entretener. Realmente, hacía mucho tiempo que no leía a personajes libres de drama, las únicas situaciones "conflictivas" lo eran apenas, nada ex desquiciados, delitos y familias descarriladas, el único punto que hubo me pareció que siempre estuvo medido por ambos personajes y el final fue sumamente tierno, dejan a las cosas fluir en su debido tiempo y no aceleran su tiempo ...more

This book was everything I wanted in a follow up to Escaping Me and so much more! This is the story of Mallory, Whitney's sister, and her journey to finding herself and coincidentally finding Everett Boone! Mallory has been burned in the past and doesn't do commitment, she only does casual. After finding out her life has been a partial let, Mallory sets out on a journey to meet her father. Along the way she will have help from both Whitney and Cole. She also will meet a delicious young man named ...more

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. 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 ...more

I love it when I start a book and then look down a few hours later only to realize I've finished. Where'd the time go?? I got lost in this story and lost track of time. That's exactly what I look for when I pick up a book. Finding You was small town romance at its best. Mallory was a strong and mischievous female lead and I adored her. It seems like the boys always get the most recognition in books these days, but I'm pleased to say that Mallory was my favorite character in this story. With that ...more

Finding You (Escaping #2), is one story that I was definitely looking forward to since I met Mallory in Escaping Me (Escaping #1).
The sassy little sister to Whitney is back for her own story. And if you haven’t read Escaping Me yet, it is a MUST. Cole and his “hammer” awaits you. ;-P

A little about the story: Ok, so what can I say without spoiling any of the plot for Escaping Me...Mal leaves home in search for “someone.” During her search for this “someone”, Mallory meets Boone. The sexy profess

I fell in love with Finding You the same way I fell in love with Escaping Me. I started the book and couldn't put it down. Mallory and her sister Whitney are one of the best things about this book and I love their relationship. Their hilarious back-and-forth banter and interaction made me smile because they remind me a little of myself and my sisters, minus the looking-for-my-father part. They look out for one another and there is g

Boone took up goft himself and pushed himself to be the best, but after tragedy strikes, Boones left that life behind him, to live a quieter life.

This was such a fun, sexy, sweet story about second chances in love and life. Elizabeth Lee has some of the most intriguing female characters for her stories, and Mallory Vandaveer was no exception. Finding out that she was fathered by someone she’d never met, and having the only father she’d ever known walk out on her and her mother, left her feeling pretty much lost and unwanted by the men in her life. But she was strong and determined to figure out who she was, and a big part of that was meet

Elizabeth Lee is easily one of my favorite authors and I could've done cartwheels when I learned she was writing a book from Mallory's POV. I loved Mallory in Escaping Me and couldn't wait to get more of her story. And guess what? I absolutely loved it, even though it's hard to put into words why.

Finding you is the second book in the escaping series. Here is where we follow Mallory on her journey to finally find her father but she ends up finding so much more.

For months Mallory has been going to Charleston to meet her dad but she gets scared and backs out every time until a cocky bastard accuses her of something making her want to prove him wrong. Then all of a sudden she finds herself in the midd

Loved It...It Was a Page Turner

I loved Cole and Whit but Mallory shines in this story...well it was her story. It was nice to have a but if Cole and Whit mentioned in this one but I was glad to see that we learn so much more about Mallory. She's definitely a spitfire. Boone was much more emotional than Mallory but she has enough spunk in her to make up for him. All the characters were loveable. My only question is what happened to Zeke? I hope he gets his HEA too.

I have another fave author to add to my list, Ms Lee just keeps getting better and better.
I love her characters, they are tough yet sweet and soft hearted in different scenes.
Her writing style always hold my attention and gets me addicted to the story.

I truly enjoyed Finding You, it was just what I needed to get over my reading slump.

Just like the first one, I enjoyed this book just as much, read it on one sitting and even LOLed a couple of times, I really liked Mallory. She was upfront and knew what she wanted, and was kinda real to me in a lot of ways.

Finding You is the second book in Elizabeth Lee's Escaping Series, but this book can be read as a standalone. Finding You centers around Mallory, but fans of Escaping Me will get to see several familiar faces including Whitney and Cole. I really enjoyed Escaping Me and would recommend starting with that one, but it is not necessary. Mallory's story was really good, and I loved getting to know her better.

Upon finishing Escaping Me, the first book in the series, I could not wait to get my hands on this book! I instantly loved Mallory and her spunky, tough as nails attitude. She has had quite the bomb dropped on her in the previous book and now she is leaving town to hopefully get some answers in Charleston. Mallory is just one of those heroines that you can't help but envy. She goes after what she wants and doesn't let fear keep her from doing new things and taking chances.

This is the second book in the Escaping series, this time following the beautiful Mallory, Whitney’s happy-go-lucky sister as she steps out alone to find her father and herself along the way.

I really liked Mallory. She may come across as fun, carefree, sexually confident and hard as nails but not far under the surface she has vulnerability about her; she just wants to be liked or loved. She is scared of rejection so builds walls around her that are hard to penetrate and hides behind sex to mask

I really love this series! I loved the first book Escaping Me. And I knew immediately reading the prologue to this book that I would fall in love with this story as well.

We first met Mallory in Escaping Me and I LOVED her. Like loved-loved! She is honestly a great female character, one of my favorites for sure. Mallory has a great family with her Mother and sister, but what she really wants so desperately is to reconnect with her long lost father Vince. So she decides to pack up

Mallory was the wild child sister of Whitney that we met in Escaping Me. She found out that her father wasn't her father and decided she needed to find him and meet him. But how do you tell someone "hey, I'm your kid". Well she packs up and decides to go stay with Whit and Cole and drive up to Charleston to see if she can actually make contact with Vince, her father.

Finding You did not live up to my expectations. Which, honestly, is my own fault. I should've read the blurb, not just skimmed it. I expected Finding You to be about Mallory searching, and finding, her long lost father. The story opens up with her doing just that; she goes to look for his dad and when she finds him, she doesn't reveal who she is because she already had one fake father walk out on her, and now she wants to be sure this one is worth keeping. So she hides the fact that s

In Finding You we get to meet the sexy ex-golf pro emotionally wounded Boone and get a better look at exactly who the adorable sassy Mallory is. Mallory is struggling with news of finding out that her dad isn't who she thought he was. Not that her dad was ever a dad to her, but knowing that there is a man out there she's never met before who is her real father is something she just can't let go of. Mallory finds herself moving half way across the country with Cole & Whit just to be closer to ...more

Finding You is Mallory’s story and I couldn’t have been more anxious to get my hands on it. It was obvious from Escaping Me that Mallory was unmistakably different from her sister, Whitney. As I read Finding You, I was so completely satisfied with the way that Elizabeth has nurtured Mallory’s voice in order to tell her story. Every second of this book screamed Mal. Her personality, excitement for life, and overall energy radiates from each and every page. Elizabeth couldn’t have captured Mal any ...more

I think Finding You was one of the best books I have read in a really long time. Now, I read the series out of order. I thought I was going to be lost, but I am being honest, I liked Finding You BETTER!!! I think it was because of Mallory! She is fantastic!

OK, so Finding You follows the story of Mallory. She is coming into her own. Finding out things she never knew and dealing with them on her own terms. Recently, she has come to find out the person she thought was her dad her whole li

Finding You is Mallory and Boone's story. Mallory goes on a search to find her father. The last thing she expected to find was Boone. Boone has had a hard few years and is just trying to fade into the shadows, until he meets Mallory.

"She makes me want to come out of the shadows and get back on the course, because if you want something, you have to go after it."

Their relationship starts off as a means to an end. Two p

I met Mallory in Escaping Me and had been patiently waiting for her story ever since. And now that I’ve finally gotten it, I was not disappointed. Mallory heads out on her own to find her father, but she ends up finding so much more. Boone is a pro-golfer that has stepped away from the game due to a tragic event in his past. Initially, he wants nothing to do with his new neighbor, Mallory, but it isn't long before these two are drawn to one another. I love Mallory, she’s s

Mallory is dealing with some tough news about the man who she believed to be her dad for her entire life and news that he is not her dad. This is a beautiful NA story of self-discovery.
