My pain started when I was just ten years old, it was the day my mom got that dreaded phone call. My life has never been the same...

I’m all kinds of broken.

I have known Logan White forever, he was my brothers best friend and my secret protector. I used to have nightmares that drew me into a dark place, and when the nightmares got too much... Logan was by my side. The nigh

"Cluster f*ck doesn't even describe what I am thinking right now." -Yep Neva, you literally took the words right out of my mouth regarding this book!

Before going into this I already knew that there was going to be a love triangle. What I did not expect was:

1)ALL OF THE CONSTANT CRYING AND SHEDDING OF TEARS BY NEVA, LOGAN, AND ANGEL

2)Neva to frustrate me to no ends!! "I love him but I love him too."

She admits that she loves both guys but whenever she's with Angel (e.g. kissing, having sex) sh

First off, don't let this cover fool you! I don't know if there's some big change in how the characters interacted in the next book but there was nothing even remotely threesome-like going on in this book! There was lots and lots of out-of-control crying, sobbing and breaking down going on. On and on, endless crying, sobbing and breaking down... I think you catch my drift!

I didn't lose my father in a car accident when I was 10 so can't speak from experience but the way Neva reacted into adultho

Finding You is an angst ridden love triangle. And just so you know I am team Logan White. As with all of my reviews I do not give spoilers. But there were a few times I wanted to choke Neva and smack some sense into her. As I was reading I was pissed off at a certain point in the book so much so that I reread the scene a few times to make sure I was reading it right. After reading the whole book I am left with such unease waiting and wondering what the future holds for all involved and be prepar ...more

Cheating, sex, booze, virginity loss, drama, lies, betrayal - pretty much your usual NA college drama.

My feelings about the ending (which is a huge cliff hanger)
Michele Realitybitesblog
Holy Hell!!! Cliffhanger Alert!!!! And not just a small one...a HUGE monumental one! One that I did not see coming!

I am the first to admit, I took quite a bit of time to cool off before writing this review. I hate cliffhangers and when this one had it...I was angry and crushed. BUT I don't want that to deture you from this book. I have to day it was really really good. So here we go.

Are you Team Logan or Team Angel????? (Me...Team Logan--I'm a sucker for the BF)

“My heart and soul, they were bruised, broken and shattered, my mind tumbling back to places I wouldn’t even want an enemy to experience.”

It’s been ten years. Ten years since Neva James’ life had changed; turned from bliss to a complete nightmare. Tragedy will do that to a kid…now, she’s twenty and still carrying around a pain only few know about. Doing h

Finding You was a wonderful debut novel. This book was full of angst, heartbreak, and one amazing cliffhanger. Neva James is a 20 year old college sophomore with a love and talent for music. When she was 10 years old her and her brother Tate, lost their father due to a tragic car accident. The pain and heartache of seeing the moment her father dies in the hospital and the guilt that she should have bee

OMG! What the hell did I just read?? I mean seriously!!!
The choice between the bad boy and the man-whore! Your best friend or the sexy stranger? How could you possibly choose between the two....and here is the problem that Neva is facing!
She has had Logan as her brothers best friend and her protector for as long as she can remember, she has watched him work his way through many girls and never felt anything about it. So why now is she suddenly feeling like this? Why is his kiss the only one th

Well, well, well...what to say. First, I can understand the pain Neva was/is going through...but she bothered the hell out of me. She is a sniveling, cry baby that is sheltered by every single person around her. She isn't fragile...she's weak. I hate these kinds of characters. What she does to Logan is disgusting, and her "reasons" make absolutely no fucking sense. I wanted to like Angel, and in a way, I really do. You don't get to see what a weak person he is until the end, and I kind of had a ...more

Oh How I hate A Cliffhanger!! An how many times I tell myself I'm NOT gonna read another story no matter how good the ratings are if it's not a complete set- But then I do.it.again.anyways! This is a love triangle between two gorgeous guys Logan- the heroines childhood bestie and the protector of all her nightmares..And Angel Walker a deliciously sinful broken soul like herself that uses music as A balm to rid away their demons..towards the end I figured part of it out ..but Not like it ended!

WTF JUST HAPPENED?? That ending was NOT what I EVER expected to happen!!

I'm disgusted at one of the guys (even if I didn't think too highly of him before anyway).


Then that disgust quickly turned into disbelief and I'm still in shock trying to get over that ending!!


On to the next book as I literally am on the edge of my seat after that cliffhanger.

First off let me tell you when I saw this cover a few months back I knew I was going to LOVE this book! It was full of angst. I felt every emotion while reading it. One minute I was laughing then I was yelling "WHAT ARE YOU DOING", then I found myself tearing up. I absolutely loved this book and I HIGHLY recommend it! I will say there is a cliffhanger at the end and I can't wait to see what happens!! Don't let this stop you from reading!! S.K. did a wonderful

Great story. Very disappointing ending. So mad that she chose the wrong guy!!!

Holy mother of all cliffhangers – this one is brutal – but the story is soooo worth it. I knew it was brutal before I started reading this story so the whole time while reading it I was scared to finish and basically looking like this….



Let’s start with the storyline and then we can dig into the characters for a bit. So we have our leading lady, Neva, who is typically college girl trying to have fun and live a carefree life but carries around the baggage that attached to her 10 years ago when her

I had been wanting to read this book since I first discovered the author's Facebook page and then I took part in her Cover Reveal! I desperately wanted to read the story behind the hot cover, so when I saw Blog Tour sign ups, I quickly signed up! I started this book shortly after I got my ARC and then I had a hard time remembering what had happened in it when I went to write my review, so I re-read it! I really enjoyed this book, but I did have some issues with it as well! The plot of this book ...more

I was going to wait a while and digest this book before trying to formulate a review for it, but after thinking about it for about five seconds, I decided I didn’t want to wait. No thinking needed. I am super angry about this book and I am not sure even that will do it justice. This book was amazing!

Neva has always known pain. She lost her father at such a very young age and has never really recovered from her pain. Her daddy was her best friend and she was defiantly wrapped around his little fi

Holy eff. Of course there was a cliff hanger at the end of this book, and of course it's a book that I am absolutely dying to read RIGHT NOW, and of course I have a huge book hangover so I can't get into anything else right now because of it. 4.5 stars

This story consists of three main characters:

Angel - exotic, blue eyed, sex god that she feels a pull to. She sensed him long before she ever lays on him, an unexplained draw.
Logan - Her brother’s best friend and her protector since a child.
Neva - the guilt ridden young woman who is haunted by the nightmares of her past. Shaped by the death of the one man she loved. She is a bit messed up and obviously confused by her attraction to two men.

My Thoughts:

Though at times I wanted to slap Neva for he

Great debut novel for S.K. Hartley. This story was so full of angst and had my emotions all over the place.

Neva is attending college with her brother Tate, her best friend, and her brother's best friend Logan. She is fighting personal demons for the past ten years since an accident shattered her world. Logan is the stereotypical good looking playboy jock has been by her side since the very beginning, being her rock and support when she needed to fight those demons.

Enter Angel Walker. He is the

Where do I begin? This book is definitely a heart wrenching story. I was left with a huge "WTF just happened" feeling in the end.
The story starts out with Neva and her brother Tate and his best friend Logan all attending school together. Logan is the star of the football team and gods gift to women, (coughs) man whore.

Enter Angel, rock hard body, loves music, has a voice of an angel and as Neva's BFF calls him, "Sex on a stick." So what better way to spend your academic year, than falling for

DNF but feel I didn't need to, think I made it to 80% two months ago. Wasn't a book that made a lot of sense. Most times I couldn't imagine the scenes that were set, how things came about, how the main female character could still be so distraught after 10 years. A lot of people have had loss in their lives and yes we cope differently but this was seriously OTT drama that just made you constantly think WTF she's crying AGAIN... Her guy bestie had a few tears as well, again with the crying but I

I'm team Logan on this one, Neva annoyed me too much the constant moving between Logan and Angel was too frustrating for me, I get that she was traumatised by her fathers death, but really being with Angel made her feel like she was living her life??
On a plus it was well written but I could see the twist coming at the end, it's not original enough for me.
Ends on a bit of a cliffy have to wait for the next book for the conclusion.

I am wrecked, that ending was brutal had I read some reviews I would of known about the cliffhanger and I don't think I would have read it till book 2 came out, this is going to be torture waiting. I need My Logan!

You have ripped my fucking heart out, Neva and what's worse is that I love you far too fucking much to hate you for it

Holy freakin cliff hanger! OMG! What an emotional rollercoaster. I want Neva with Logan so badly...I am glad the author allowed us to see Neva's conflicting emotions. It allows you to understand her "messed-up" choices. How long do we have to wait for book 2...please tell me not too long. That cliff hanger is insane. Wow!
Dena
This story fucks with you so much you have no idea where you are. I absolutely loved it and couldn't put it down. Neva is weak and in love with 2 men one protective the other one weak and cowardly it's up to you to figure out which one. I fell in love with everyone and I couldn't not like any of the characters. This is worth the money and time.


Overall it fucks with you and makes you cry.
