Series: Destination Love #3
Publisher: Forever
Format: Trade Paperback
Price: $14.99 USD

Being adopted never made Jane Smith feel unloved, just unlike the rest of her family. As her twenty-fifth birthday approaches, she is struck by an overwhelming longing to finally find her place in the world. So, in a very un-Jane-like move, she books a last-minute ticket to Greece to find her birth father and the real Jane. All she knows about him is that he was a tour guide named Dimitri. Armed with this knowledge and several surprise boxes of condoms from her mom (not embarrassing at all), Jane takes off.

Within minutes of landing she makes two important discoveries. First, everyone in Greece is named Dimitri, and second, fate might be playing a sick joke on her when a sexy tour guide called Dimitri comes to fetch her from the airport. After failing to find concrete information about her father, Dimitri offers to help Jane with her search – if she’ll go on an adventure with him. Stable Jane would never risk a steamy vacation romance, but real Jane might finally be ready to listen to her heart. Will Jane find her biological father, or will she end up finding something else entirely?

REVIEW

After reading the last  Jo Watson book I was thrilled to  pick up the next one so when I  got  a copy of  Finding You I was so excited to dig into this  story and I loved it!

In this book we follow  Jane , Jane has always felt  like  she was  out of place and I did not  belong and one of the main reason is because  she was adopted . After tracking down her mother she decides to Track down her  father ( his name is  Dimitri )  too and   this  leads her to Greece where  she  then  meets   Dimitri the tour guide( Just so there is no confusion in this book there are two Dimitri's on is Jane's Father and one is Jane's Love  Interest)  and this  is really where things take off in this story .  I have always wanted to  travel to Greece so see Greece  through janes  eyes was just so  much fun . I loved the romance between Jane and Dimitri it was fun , sexy and so very swoonworthy . Jo Watson writes such unique  romances  that's always Leaves you feeling  all  warm and fuzzy. On the inside .We get to not only see Jane Fall inlove but get more comfortable in her own skin .  The search for her father  gave her so much more than what she originally thought she  would get . There was never a dull moment in the story and  I was constantly turning to the  next page needing to know what would happen next  .This book is officially on my favorite books of 2016 list.

Finding You was a sexy , funny , quirky , swoon worthy , heartwarming romance . That reminds you  again and again that you should never give up on the love .if yout love all these things in your stories you should defiantly pick up this book as soon as you can .

Top 5 Book Boyfriends/ Girlfriends and your reason for picking them

So… I’m not a massive reader, and I don’t actually read much romance either - to be perfectly honest. (Maybe I write too much of it!) So I really had to think hard about these ones!

  1. Silver Linings Playbook- I loved both the characters in this book, they’re amazing. The book is much better then the film too- definitely give it a read if you haven’t. I love these two because they’re both deeply flawed and screwed up and both come with such excess baggage. I also like books that deal with real issues like mental illness. And I like characters that need to grow and change in order to be happy and have a real meaningful relationship. I think it’s more reflective of real life.
  2. Hannibal and Clarice- Hear me out on this one! Hardly anyone has read these books- and they’re actually very good. In the end, unlike the film, Hannibal and Clarice end up falling in love and running off together. I loved the complexity of the relationship, how she’s initially hunting him but ultimately falls in love with him. The monster who seems too unredeemable as a character, is redeemed through his feelings for her. I love stories like this. He is the ultimate bad boy, if you’re into that sort of thing (like eating brains)!
  3. Memoires of a Geisha- This is probably my favorite- and one of the only- romance book that I’ve read. I loved the setting and history lesson you get while reading it, and the relationship between the characters is beautiful. It felt like fate was pulling these characters together throughout the book and you really root for them to finally get together after so, so many years.
  4. I recently read a YA book called, “By the Time You read this, I’ll be Dead,” by Julie Anne Peters and really enjoyed it. It’s a gut-wrenching story of a teen who is determined to commit suicide in 23 days. During this time she meets a young guy called Santana, and the two start a sort-of relationship. He’s also facing death, but not because he wants to die. I really enjoyed this well written, complicated relationship. The book poses -in my view -the ultimate romantic question; is love enough?
  5. Can I say my book ‘Burning Moon’? I loved Damien and Lilly from my first book, the reason is that they are both based on parts of me- does that sound wildly narcissistic? I think what I’m trying to say is that their relationship, and Lilly’s constant overly-dramatic mental monologues were in many ways my own. Damien too was also based on parts of myself- the way I think and the way things have shaped me. It was fun to write about parts of myself that I usually wouldn’t really admit to having.



EXCERPT

He stepped toward me. My heart stopped pumping. He leaned in close and pulled my hand from behind my back and placed his card in the center of my palm. My nerve endings prickled and the hair on the back of my neck stood up.

“Just in case.” He repeated the words and they sounded so loaded.

In case what? In case I decided to lose all common sense, judgment, control, my mind (although that was already up for debate) and call you for a midnight beach romp. I’ll be sure to bring my watch so I can take note of how long it takes you to make me start screaming your name in wild ecstasy…Oh God, that sounded good!

I took a large step back. He took a large step forward. Back. Forward. Then he leaned in again. Holy Crap! He was coming in for that double-cheek kiss again and I wasn’t sure I’d be able to remain cool and calm and controlled this time.  Only he didn’t. He did something far, far more odd and unsettling. He pulled my sunglasses off, placed them in the same hand as the card and then closed my fingers around them. He squeezed my hand closed while looking into my eyes in a way that rattled me to my very core.

My head started spinning and suddenly I felt a tad unsteady. I hoped to hell that I wasn’t about to be knocked off my feet by my raging hormones and fall into his arms. He gave my hand one last squeeze, and then… he was gone!

What the hell did that mean? You can’t just take off a person’s glasses, put them in their hands, stare into their eyes meaningfully and then mysteriously walk away without saying a word. What the hell was he playing at?

And why was it so hard to keep myself from falling for it?
