I'm speechless... This book hit me so hard.

Everything about this story is perfect. The characters, the dialogue, the steamy moments.

I couldn't put this down. Honestly, it's one unforgettable story about true love.

I'll admit it... I was in tears at the end of the book.

I absolutely loved the mystery between the characters. There is also a pinch of an unexplainable element, but the story is not an over the top fantasy. I don't want to ruin this book for anyone, so I'm just go

I really had no idea what this book was going to be about. Somewhere in my head, I was convinced this story was going to be about a nanny who seduced the hot older widowed father; I think TL Swan planted that idea into my head and then forgot to tell me that wasn’t the story she was writing. Or maybe I just really was wanting a younger girl/Silver fox story, but that is NOT what Find Me Alastar is about.

After Em finds herself wanting more from her life, something she can’t quite explain – but j

Some authors are natural born storytellers, and TL Swan is one of them; for all their faults, I love her books. Unfortunately, their faults are many. Find Me, Alastar reminded me of a patchwork quilt whose core story has been lovingly crafted, but then bits and pieces have been carelessly sewn around the edges with mismatched thread. Astonishingly, when it's held up and the reader sees it from a distance, it's breathtakingly beautiful despite all of its flaws. It's not fair! I so desperately wan ...more

Oh my word, what a book! I didn't think T L would be able to top my love for Joshua Stanton but she absolutely did!! I don't want to say anything about the storyline as you need to go in blind and just go with it, but I will say that this book is swoony and romantic yet is brimming with mystery, suspense and smoking hot scenes. I laughed, chuckled, fanned myself, gasped, cringed, swooned and cried, and I couldn't put it down. As always, after reading a book by T L Swan, I was left with a book ha ...more

Wow this is truely a unique journey that TL Swan has taken me on, packed with mystery, angst, love and tears. A definitive roller coaster of mixed emotions that will have you guessing and on the edge of your seat until the very end. Even at the end of this book it will have your imagination running wild.

Alastar and Em's story is hard to put into words in a review without spoiling the journey that I highly recommend you take. This is not like anything I have ever read before.

Things I learned in 5th grade writing class....

1. Start a new paragraph when a new person begins to speak. 2. Use a new paragraph and/or chapter when you skip to a new place, time or topic. Just something to think about.
Now WTF did I just read? It's like the author forgot to finish the story. I read freaking romance novels for the HEA! Now I have this freaking depressing unfinished ending stuck in my head! Thanks a lot and here is your one star. If I could give this crappy ending negative star

Warning- this is a true love story!
Wow! Yes this is a change in direction for TL Swan but it proves her versatility. Having just finished reading this story I feel I need to take a few breaths! This book really has an impact on the reader.
It is a strong, well thought out plot that lures the reader in, making them want to know the secrets behind the story.
I loved the strength and yet vulnerability of the characters and honestly wonder how anyone could not fall a bit in love with Alastar! The inte

Wow! Find Me Alastar is just WOW. This is my first book by T.L. Swan and it blew me out of the water. I was entranced throughout the entire book and, sad to say, neglected everything I had to do for the day to finish this book.

Emerson Mathews is our female lead, who feels as if something big is missing from her life. For reasons unknown she is pulled to London. She thinks it is for an internship at an auction house and a possible new start with Mark, but she couldn't be more wrong. Fate is what

Sometimes I wish I was more articulate, it has never been a talent of mine to get my thoughts across in a way that will express what I feel. Often I end up with foot in mouth disease.
That being said, I would like to tell you about my feelings for “Find me Alastar” – however badly it may come across… This has been one of those books that had me from beginning to end. It is one of the few books that will stay with me forever and ever. It’s one of those books that you can recommend with certainty

WOW! This book is very different! Once again, the author had me engaged from the very first sentence!! I enjoy a good romantic book but sometimes they feel repetitive- the same story different names- but this book is DIFFERENT! I'm trying to figure out how the author came up with this concept! It is thought provoking!! It is difficult to say more without giving spoilers- but you do NEED TO READ THIS BOOK! It has everything. Drama, mystery, romance, history and twists and turns!!

I was so fortunate to receive an early ARC of Find Me Alastar. What a story! Emerson's journey is quite an emotional one. Find Me Alastar fascinated me from the prologue to the epilogue, I didn't want it to end! As Emerson slowly discovered pieces of the truth, I became more intrigued and more involved, I absolutely needed to find out Alastar's role in this story! Was he just a hot, sexy, Irish god? Or, was there more to him? Alastar, good, bad, or evil? Emerson couldn't stay away, neither could ...more

Wow oh wow, TL Swan certainly outdone herself this time with her new release Find Me Alastar. I was fortunate enough to receive an ARC of this unbelievable book. Such a beautiful book, aperfect blend of romance, hot scenes and drama. There were many twists and turns and hidden lines, it made me feel every emotion I could feel. A truly unique book, the story line was so unique it had me hooked from start to end. I couldn't put it down. A must read.

I just finished reading this amazing book, and I am crying like a baby. Such a complex and wonderfully haunting story! The book starts with Emerson, the lead female character, (whose point of view is used to speak to us throughout most of the book), as she leaves her native Australia, with her best friend, Brielle, to go to London. Emerson goes into an antique store, and falls in love with an emerald and rose gold ring. She is told by the old woman who runs the shop, that the ring has markings o ...more

4 solid stars.
This author was a no-no for me after her “Stanton” saga. To much man-ho and doormat heroines.
This book was a total page-turner for me. It has suspense, romance- i like it a lot.
Triggers: sex without condom, cheating (heroine for 1 year was flirting and writing over internet with another man, and she was still in relationship with her long-term bf), no cheating bw H and h though.
I liked MCs and some of SC also. Heroine was not a doormat for me, she made the H grovel, he was sleeping

I adored TL Swan's work before but after receiving an early ARC of Find Me Alastar, I can truly say I am in love with this author!!!
This wonderful tale begins with a woman moving countries to find herself and she ends up finding something truly amazing!!!!
To merely say this story is a love of the ages, would not do it the justice I think it truly deserves.
TL Swan takes you away into the depths of Alastar and Emerson's souls, and then some, with this seductive story that almost steps into the re

First let me say I have the utmost respect for authors. There's no way I could sit down and focus enough to write a short story, let alone a novel. T.L. Swan is a rock star in my eyes, just because she does what she does. That being said, "Find Me Alastar" was pretty awful. I find it hard to believe any mid-20's adult would be as juvenile as the characters in this book. The writing was rocky, dialog was really strange and there were a lot of editing fails. The storyline itself (once I realized w ...more

This book WOW. From the very first line you are drawn into its powerful grasp and your not let go until the very last line. This is one of those stay up all night, forget to eat, drink function like a normal human being until you have finished it books.
The way this books is written every tear from a character travels down your cheek. Every smile finds itself on your face.
Can't wait to see what else comes out of this authors magnificent mind.

Once I started, I could not put it down.
I created so many scenarios in my head of how I thought this book would end, none of which came close. It's the kind of book that you finish and are still thinking about days later.
T.L. Swan is an amazing author and this book blew my mind!!
I loved it and I am impatiently waiting for the next one.

This has been by far one of the best books I've read this year.This has my rating on ten twinkle stars. As you all know I'm a book blogger I read plenty but, this was something else. I have two more books to get through I don't know how I'm going to let go of this one. It's one of those books that will stay with you and you'll want to re-read it over and over again.

“Find Me Alastar” has everything that makes for a great story- romance, suspense, angst, mystery, true love and a bit of heat ;)! This story was not at all what I had expected, it kept me guessing. I had so many thoughts as to where it was headed- none of which were correct! I can’t really expand on that because it would give too much away. It’s best to just jump right in knowing as little as possible.

I easily connected with both of the main characters, Alastar and Emerson (Emmaline). I feel as

Loved this book Find me Alastar had me gripped from the prologue and only took me two days to read it into the early hours where sleep had to take a back seat. I was lucky to get a ARC copy and would recommend it to Any reader who a loves romance mystery with two leading characters you know have serious chemistry together.

T.L Swan has done it again!!!! This book should come with a health warning as it will leave you with a serious book hangover. Totally different from her Stanton series but such an amazing book, it will stay with you long after you've finished reading. This author is a genius and her characters are brilliant. I loved the story but as another reviewer said, you totally need to go into this blind. No spoilers please folks, Find me Alastar is an experience not to be missed!

I voluntarily reviewed an advanced reader copy of this book.
Find Me Alastar. What a fantastic read T.L.Swan kept you enthralled through the whole book, wanting to see what would happen next for Alastar and Emerson. It is so well written and full of emotions, made you laugh, made you cry, made you fall in love with Star.
The characters so strong, the storyline so interesting, didn't want it to end. Another success for T.L.Swan.
