It's Liam... what more can I say?

I hesitate to even write this review. While I LOVE this series, I just didn't love this book. I spent most of my time annoyed at Liam. I love Liam in the other books,but I just feel that he is so selfish in this one. Even though I know how the story between Josie and Liam ends, I still cringed during this book. I loved the parts where Josie was still in his life. I disliked the parts when she wasn't there. This is teenaged angst at its best. I love the writing style. I didn't give this book only ...more

I've read all of the other "Beaumont Series" books, enjoyed them, and was looking forward to this one.

I'm going to assume that if you're interested in this book, it's because you've already read Forever My Girl, but if not, there are SPOILERS to follow.

I thought the first half of the book was terribly depressing. It was all about how much Liam LOVED and ADORED Josie……even though we know he walked away for 10 years. It was also about Mason/Katelyn, which was nice, except I thought this too was k

I really wish I could purge the Liam in this book from my brain because I already had issues with him. I tried to understand him and his actions but I just...couldn't. No empathy or sympathy from me. Too bad he didn't miss more than 10 years of Noah's life. Harsh but true.


He and Sam would make a great team.



The 2 stars are for Harrison and Mason.

This was a great companion novel and it contained completely new material which was refreshing. I really came to understand Liam's decision once I saw the backstory. I had read some of the reviews before starting, and was afraid I would hate him after reading this, but I didn't. I actually really felt for him in the first half.

Mason's decision was really shitty and while I had been looking forward to meeting him, he wasn't a very good friend. He was mooning over Katelyn and no one else seemed t

So when I read Forever My Girl years ago I really didn't think I cared about the time Liam was away making a rockstar name for himself.

I also didn't realize that this series went on and on after the first 2 books I read years ago so here I am finishing up the series....albeit a bit late.

When I started this book which takes us back to the time that Liam left Josie, I really wasn't all the excited about it amd figured I'd just fast read through the book so I can get to the next one to finish the

This was a nice read. At least going through it I knew that everything in the end was going to work out. Although, it was nice to see how he went from football player to musician. I hated his father. He was such a jerk thankfully his grandma was there for him and let him find his true passion in life.

Finding My Way es una precuela de la saga de Heidi McLaughlin si bien el orden de lectura no es antes de la historia inicial, aquí conocemos a Liam Westbury, el jugador de futbol americano y músico famoso.

Cuando lees el primer libro de esta saga Forever My Girl conoces la historia del presenten de Liam y Josie, pero no sabes exactamente que fue lo que vivieron ellos, y que fue lo que hizo que Liam tomara la decisión de irse por 10 años y regresar cuando sucede algo trágico con los amigos de ell

I am a series whore and I absolutely FLOVE this series! I was very excited when I heard we were getting a book about how Liam Westbury became Liam Page. In Forever My Girl, we meet Liam and get flashbacks of his younger days and the choices he made but never specifics. This book is ALL LIAM, ALL THE TIME! I didn't think I could love him more. The writing is outstanding in this book. Heidi tells a heartbreaking story that made me cry more than a few times. We get to see a younger Liam with issues ...more

Me propuse terminar esta saga, porque hace poco me enteré que hay una segunda saga dedicada a los niños de Beamount, y me moría de curiosidad, sin embargo me imagino que esta segunda saga es más un Young adult, como este libro... Y si la autora escribe así el género, no estoy convencida de que sea de mi agrado.

Liam es un patán, que tapa sus hormonas con el cuento del amor. Jura amar a Josie, pero en todo el libro lo único que adora es su belleza y sus habilidades en la cama, nunca habla de otras

This book was utter perfection for me. Nope not even kidding a little bit. Finding My Way was all I had hoped it to be and more. I guess I should share that I adore this Beaumont Series so much and so if I could give it more than 5 stars I so would!! This may be number four in the series but it’s really the prequel to the entire series and puts into place the 10yrs that Liam Page Westbury spent away from the people he loves the most. If you haven’t read the rest of the series, what the hell are ...more

I'm not a big fan of a story being told from a different point of view. Usually there isn't enough new stuff to seem like a new book. That is not the case with this one. Yes we know what happened, it was covered in the first book with a few flashbacks. But this book is firmly set in the past and we can see why Liam did what he did, how the walls were closing in and how his family and friends, yes I mean Josie and Mason, weren't supportive of him and the new things he tried, his music. The last s ...more

Once again Heidi Mclaughlin doesn't disappoint. In general I am not a big fan of prequals. I would rather read the whole series in order. But because I love this story I read it. It was nice to get inside a young Liam ' s mind. And I may be the only one who feels this way, while I love Liam a little more, a dislike Josie a little more. I understand why Liam left now and I can't say I blame him. Heidi Mclaughlin is an auto but for me.

I rather would have read a book about their wedding and the future more then this...I already felt as though I understood Josie and Liam in forever my girl..it made me not really like Liam and I loved him in forever my girl and the rest of the series...plus it made me not really like his grandmother and so of the things mason did effected other people....if anything please write about the future!!!

Nope. Just couldn't do it. DNF'd at Chapter 11. I just didn't like the way it was written.

I love this series! At times this one was tough for me. I felt old reading about these kids but was turned on by the sex scenes (ha ha). Liked getting some insight into the characters.

Although this is book 4 i read it second bc of my love for Liam and Josie

I was given a ARC copy in exchange for my honest review.

If I could give this book more than 5 stars I would. I was blown away. Once I received it this morning for the blog tour I stopped EVERYTHING I was doing and I could not stop once I picked it up. I have been waiting for this for what feels like an eternity. We get to meet high school Liam and we got to see and feel the emotions he went through and struggled through. He loved football, but that was who his family and friends, Josie expected

When I think about Liam my first thought is, poor poor pitiful me. That is all he did was moan about how bad his life was and that no one understood what he was going through.
Never once did he explain himself to Josie so that she could understand. He always agreed with what ever was said instead of explaining how he was really feeling.
In the first book in this series, if I remember correctly Liam said that he only had one night only with Sam and yet in this book he had a relationship with her. T

Definitely 4.5 stars.

I neglected to read the synopsis before reading this book because I've been enjoying the series. I'm not usually a fan of the alternate POV, but this book definitely swayed me.

It gave me lots of insight as to how Liam felt and why he did the unthinkable things that he did. I was actually cheering for him during certain parts. Getting more info on him helps to see where the other books are headed and one of my favorite things was that we get to meet Harrison and find out the

I'm so torn when it comes to rating this book. On one hand I loathe selfish only care about myself Liam. On the other hand I am so angry with Josie and her "Liam will be a football star" blinders. She made no effort to read between the lines and see how much he was struggling. Having read Forever My Girl and knowing that Josie did try to contact Liam about Noah helped ease my anger towards Josie. But still there was so much unnecessary angst between these two over their 10 year separation. I am ...more

The Beaumont series is one of my favorite series, I was hooked up from the first book when I fell in love with Liam.I was really happy when I found out about this book.I wanted to know more about Liam and his reasoning for the choices he had made and I got my answers in Finding My Way, although I had some moments when I wanted to slap Liam.I recommend this book.

Even through I loved this series, I did not love this book. I thought Liam was too selfish, but with parents like his, who wouldn't be at the age of 18. I expected more from Liam in this book.

El libro es impresionante como siempre, pero en mi opinión debió ser el primero de la serie ya que después de leer los anteriores sabemos lo que pasa. Pero en fin, me lo disfruté bastante.

Although this is the 4th book in the series it gives you the start that tore Liam from the place he grew up and the only women he's ever loved. So I chose this to read this book second, I wanted to see how Harrison ties in before he falls head over heels with one of the girls from the group that Liam wants to surround himself with the most. Not only do get a glimpse of Liam before graduation you get to see why he went from Beaumont's golden boy turn rock start. Not being a romance reader I still ...more

I really enjoyed "Finding" My Way" by Heidi McLaughlin. I thought this was a fantastic look back at how the story began. The first half of the book was somewhat repetitive and could have been shortened - when I hit the second half and Liam was in LA.... that's when I kept on the edge of my seat. I tend to have a love/hate relationship with prequels especially one that is this deep into the series. I found myself wanting to go back and re-read the first book. Looking forward to continuing on with ...more

I didn't know what to expect when I started this book. I'm glad that I read it though. I love Josie, but after reading this, I wanted to slap her a little. But then I remembered her age in this book. This is when Liam and Josie first started dating all the way through his return to Beaumont when Mason died.

Liam was having a break down. He was 18, he shouldn't have had so much anxiety. The fact that no one that loved him even really noticed that he was struggling, hurt. It didn't help him at all

Insightful

I swear, this story just about broke me. Of course I've read the other books in the series and know how Liam and Josie reunite, but this is the story of how it all falls apart, before the reunion and honestly, I can totally believe it. I think at one time or another we have tried to live up to someone else's expectations and been pressured or put pressure on ourselves to fulfill those expectations. So Liam's journey actually broke my heart because he did try to show Josie that he was c

Knowing how this story ends did not help with how this book read - depressing.

It's sad and dramatic. There is no HEA or happy anything really, except for brief rays of fleeting sunshine sparsely sprinkled here and there. However, I loved seeing young Harrison and Liam's grandmother. Liam on the other hand, he's a tough character to like, even more here than in previous books. He's young and his actions do not always lead him down the right pass. He makes lots of mistakes along the way, trying t

What would usually take me one day has taken three. I thought this book was a great concept but it was so long, so repetitive and way beyond inner dialogue. Yes, I almost did not finish it but I fell in love with the first book and Liam's story. I felt compelled to finish and I'm pretty sure I would never have moved on from book 1 if I knew the others would be like this. After lots of skimming and hating myself for continuing the book, I've finally finished it. Not something I'd recommend or som ...more
