Synopsis

I’ve always been lost . . .

Abandoned by a father who didn’t want me. Cherished by a stepfather, though I wasn’t his. Shattered by a boy who swore he loved me.

But I belonged nowhere, to no one.

Then I met Owen, the sweet-talking hockey player who made me love him. He gave me the courage to trust in someone besides myself. He showed me a love I longed for.

When an unwanted ghost comes knocking on my door, my heartbreaking history threatens to repeat itself. But where do I turn if I lose everyone? And how do I find where I belong, when I’m still Finding Me?

Finding Me is a spinoff from the Second Chances series and can be read as a standalone.

Excerpt

I couldn’t quite make eye contact with Ethan since the last time I came back to the apartment with Owen before Thanksgiving break. We caught Ethan naked in the hallway—on a date and thinking they had the place to themselves for a night. I was no prude, but seeing junk not belonging to my boyfriend turned me three shades of red. I hadn’t even seen Owen’s, but I . . . felt it . . . a lot. On my leg, against my stomach, sometimes rubbing my back if he was holding me from behind. Why I was so bashful I couldn’t say, especially since I didn’t have a cherry to pop. But it was only one guy and only one time, shortly before he shredded my heart and then stomped all over it. Even though I couldn’t make my virginity grow back, I wasn’t quite ready to go there again. However, not being ready for sex had absolutely nothing to do with wanting it. Our time together always ended with a scorching kiss and groping against the nearest wall. Owen’s Southern gentility was probably wearing thin these past few weeks.

“Owen? The movie starts in a half hour!” I called as I strolled down the hallway.

“Hey, City. Give me a minute, practice ran late.” Owen had just stepped out of the shower and was dripping freaking wet. The V on his hips disappeared into a towel cinched around his tapered waist. Water traveled from the stray tangled locks at his neck and trickled down over his ripped chest and his abs before disappearing into the bunched up material at his waist. I licked my parched lips and tried to remember how to speak. How many damn abs did he have? Six? Eight? I was gaping at a wet, half naked Owen while the corner of the bastard’s mouth turned up in a smirk. I didn’t have the faculties to scowl back. My tongue didn’t want to work unless it was tracing the water trails across Owen’s body.

“Keep looking at me like that, baby. We won’t be going anywhere tonight.”

FINDING ME
Stephanie Rose

Finding Me by Stephanie Rose, did something that not many have been able to do while still capturing the love of their readers. Through Finding Me, Stephanie was able to bring us a spin off series in which we are introduced to a child in the original series, only to read about them as an adult in the spin off series. Stephanie was able to do this seamlessly. Having the chance to reconnect with characters from the original series brought an entirely new level of love to the book.

Aside from being able to write a spin off story in which we are able to connect with a child from the original series, Finding Me was a captivating story. Throughout the book I was met with a variety of emotions. I fell in love with characters, I laughed, I cried, I wanted to yell for the anger I felt, and most of all I felt an overwhelming sense of happiness as I followed the journey through the relationship we see between Owen and Bella.

Finding Me was an all-around amazing read and I can’t wait to see what Stephanie Rose gives us next.
