Alayna Withers has only had one kind of relationship: the kind that makes her obsessive and stalker-crazy. Now that Hudson Pierce has let her into his heart, she’s determined to break down the remaining walls between them so they can build a foundation that’s based on more than just amazing sex. Except Hudson’s not the only one with secrets.

With their pasts pulling them into a web of unfounded mistrust, Alayna turns to the one person who knows Hudson the best—Celia, the woman he almost married. Hoping for insight from someone who understands all sides of the story, Alayna forms a bond with Celia that goes too far—revealing things about Hudson that could end their love for good.

This is the first relationship where Alayna hasn’t spiraled out of control. And she might lose Hudson anyway…

My thoughts…

I’m sort of conflicted about this book. After reading Fixed on You (book one) I didn’t think a book two was necessary, but I was excited to get more Hudson Pierce.

Immediately things started to frustrate me. Alayna was doing things that had me shaking my head. Literally. I couldn’t understand the point of some of her actions. There was a lot of back and forth with her decisions. I almost started to not like her.

Hudson though… Well, Hudson was awesome. The man is just delicious. I really liked him in the first book and that didn’t change within this one. Together I thought Alayna and Hudson were good for each other. They both have issues. Major issues, but I think that sort of bonded them together.

Hudson liked to use sex as a tool to solve their problems. Instead of talking it out he resorted to ******* it out. For reals lol

There are a couple twists and turns within Found in You that make it a more enjoyable read. One thing I didn’t see coming and was a bit shocked, but the other I suspected all along.

The sexual scenes were hot, plentiful, and well written. I had to fan myself several times.

Overall, Found in You was an enjoyable read. After finishing I can’t see a need for a book three, but there will be one. I’m not sure if I’ll read it or not. Most likely I will because I’ve already invested time in both book one and two. If you’re a fan of hot contemporary romance then this series should be right up your alley.

Stalking and restraining orders are a thing of Alayna Wither’s past. With her MBA newly in hand, she has her future figured out—move up at the nightclub she works at and stay away from any guy who might trigger her obsessive love disorder. A perfect plan.

But what Alayna didn’t figure on is Hudson Pierce, the new owner of the nightclub. He’s smart, rich, and gorgeous—the kind of guy Alayna knows to stay away from if she wants to keep her past tendencies in check. Except, Hudson’s fixed his sights on her. He wants her in his bed and makes no secret of it.

Avoiding him isn’t an option after he offers a business proposition she can’t turn down and she’s drawn further into his universe, unable to resist his gravitational pull. When she learns Hudson has a dark history of his own, she realizes too late that she’s fallen for the worst man she could possibly get involved with. Or maybe their less than ideal pasts give them an opportunity to heal each other and finally find the love their lives have been missing.

My thoughts…

It took me a little bit to get into this one, but after 50 or so pages I found that I could hardly put it down. The plot was really interesting and I enjoyed reading this story. It’s a humorous, sexy, and sometimes emotional read. I admit I teared up a couple times while reading it.

I liked both the hero and heroine and most of the secondary characters.

The heroine is Alayna. I really liked her. She’s got her issues. She tends to take things to the extreme where relationships are concerned. Stalking. Restraining orders. Yeah. Issues.

And the hero. Hudson. *swoon* Hot. Successful. Dominate. Manipulative. Sociopath? He too has issues. Lots of issues. Even though I still liked him. Together they pretend to be in love so Hudson doesn’t have to enter into a loveless marriage with his best friend. His mother desperately wants Hudson to marry her best friends daughter Celcia.

Hudson’s mother, Sophia, is a complete bitch. I loathed the woman and loved every second of Alayna putting her in her place. It was downright hysterical at times.

The sexual scenes were hot, hot, hot, and well written. I had to fan myself a few times while reading them. The chemistry Alayna and Hudson shared was electric. I loved them together and wanted things to work out for them in the end.

Overall, this was a great read. I’m really looking forward to reading the next book in this trilogy.
