Royce Lemmi went from being the bullied little freak in high school to rock and roll demigod in the blink of an eye. While playing to packed stadiums filled with screaming fans night after night is a daily reminder of how far he’s come, most days Royce can’t help but see that tortured soul from before, anytime he looks in the mirror.

An attempt to escape some paparazzi leads him to a chance meeting with Kieran Hudson, who turns out to be just the photographer they need to help document the band on tour for a book that is to be released afterwards. Royce and Hudson are very attracted to one another and quickly realize that they are a great match. The problem is that while Royce is out to his family and friends, he is still living a lie to ...more

I was crushing my own f*cking heart...
I am such a fan of this series. I have fallen in love with these characters and I will be so sad when it's over. I can't get enough of them. The band members of Finding Nolan are family by choice, not by blood. They are all broken with painful pasts. They are outcasts, invisibles, and victims that see the good in each other but not in themselves. They are very supportive of each other, protecting each others secrets and willing to kick each others a$$e$ when

I've always been open to the idea of reading anything out of my normal genres. Already feeling safe and secure with KS' work, I jumped at the opportunity to expand my horizon. I've never read LGBT before and after reading Secret Hudson, I'll never close up the genre.

Coming from two completely different upbringings, Royce and Hudson find a mutual attraction for each other. In the midst of exploring their feelings for each other, they help each other to understand the stigma and labelling of bein

Royce wasn't very open to his fan about himself. He falls in love with Hudson. It takes him to make him see how he's not seeing himself. But things happen and cause a ruckus ... I absolutely loved this story. It's a powerful story about hiding in the closet & to scared to show the world who you are.

Original Blog Post: Happy Happy Release Day!!! eARC Review, Excerpt & #Giveaway: Secret Hudson (A Finding Nolan Novel #2) by K.S. Thomas

Before I begin this review, let me just say I have not read Lost Avalon (A Finding Nolan Novel #1), but I really don't need to. From what I had read of Secret Hudson, the two are different stories but connected and the drama of this installment is a far cry from the first. That said, this is a true stand-alone written masterfully by an author I am quite new

KS Thomas is one of those authors that you just gravitate towards because her writing is so pure and she tends to put her entire heart and soul into the story she tells so the emotions that the characters portray come through to the reader and you just connect on such a level that you feel like you are going through all of their trials and tribulations with them every step of the way.

Book Two Secret Hudson I think has to be my favorite and its definitely hard to pick a favorite when your talkin

While the first book in the Finding Nolan series, Lost Avalon, dealt with some pretty serious issues and had a lot of drama, I found Secret Hudson to be much more lighthearted, even though it covered its own complicated topics.

The banter between characters in this story was fantastic, and there was plenty to laugh about. I loved delving further into the Finding Nolan characters, and during Secret Hudson you feel like you're becoming even more ingrained in this family of friends. The addition of

Second book in the Finding Nolan novels. Royce has been in the closet since he was a teen he had been bullied, and shunned from his family. As far as the world is concerned he the hot sexy bass player in the group Finding Nolan. He has had his flings but has never stayed in a relationship with a man for long. Until the day Ava and Royce duck into a coffee shop to escape paparazzi. Besides discovering what an fantastic cup of coffee

Eek! I was so excited to hear that the second book in the Finding Nolan series was coming out. I love this group of rockers-Blaise, Royce, Angel, Derek-they each bring their own unique personality to the group. Throw in the band manager, Ava, and they're a totally messed-up, completely lovable family. After reading Lost Avalon, it's obvious that Royce is the glue that holds them all together. In Secret Hudson, we find out that Royce doesn't think he's as strong as all the others believe he is. I ...more

Wow! What an amazing follow-up to Lost Avalon!! This book is written so incredibly well!

This story revolves around sexy bass player Royce Lemmi who is hiding a pretty big secret from everyone but the members of his band, and best friend/manager Ava.

When Ava and Royce are on a coffee run first thing in the morning and run into paparazzi they escape into the nearest coffee shop and meet the extremely good looking coffee guy, Keiran Hudson. When Ava sees that Keiran is an amazing photographer she
This is the first book I have read by this author, and I really enjoyed it. This is the second book in the Nolan series, and while I haven't read the first book I had no trouble follow the story arc.

The story was gripping, emotional, and powerful while still being really funny, and it will make you fall for both Royce and Hudson. They're both insightful characters, which make for some strong feelings

I haven't read the first book in this series but I found I still liked this book alot. Instead of the typical out of control rock star this book actually has a fairly level headed MC. Although Royce is in the closet and it does cause some problems most of this book actually sets that issue aside to develop the relationship between Royce and Hudson. This was a nice sweet romance book for the most part with a cast of off the wall and colorful side characters.
Great cast of characters surround Royce and Hudson in this story! The band members are really like family and are always in each other's business, but it works! As far as Royce and Hudson, I thought they were great together. Can't wait to see Angel finally get his book!

I received an ARC via NetGalley for the purpose of an honest review. I was not compensated for this review, all conclusions are my own.

I loved getting to read the story of Royce and Hudson. The love story is seen thru all the characters eyes and you get to really see how Royce and Hudson struggle to get thru all their past issues and insecurities. K.S. Thomas has brought a funny great story while still showing the fierce love and loyalty that is throughout the Finding Nolan craziness!

This is the second book in the Finding Nolan series. Secret Hudson isnt as heavy as the first book but it does cover its own topics and demons that Royce and Hudson face.

Dog Lover who likes her pastries full of cream and sugar...oh...and I write some ;-)

Aside from being an author, I am also a mom to a beautiful little girl. I tell everyone I named her after my great-grandmother (because that's the mature answer), but really, I named her after my favorite princess - just so happens I got lucky and they had the same name...If I wasn't a writer, I would work on a hor
