Alayna Withers has only had one kind of relationship: the obsessive, crazy stalker kind. Now that Hudson Pierce has let her into his heart, she’s determined to stay away from her past tendencies and develop their love into more than just amazing sex. At least Hudson is as dedicated to her as she is to him, though she could do without his new found jealousy and need to control everything. To complicate matters, Hudson has his own baggage including a penchant for mind games and a hateful alcoholic mother who’s set on destroying any happiness he might find with Alayna.
Needing insight, Alayna turns to an unlikely source—Celia Werner. Celia’s been in love with Hudson herself and knows how to ride the rocky waves of the emotionally closed-off man. But when Celia’s true motivations behind their friendship are revealed, Hudson’s commitment might not be as solid as Alayna thinks, and even their all-consuming passion for each other isn’t enough to fix their mistrusts. This is the first relationship where Alayna hasn’t spiraled out of control. And she might lose Hudson anyway…
My Rating: 4.5 Stars
“Our pasts will always threaten to come between us. But nothing can come between us unless we let it.”
I was so happy to get to spend some more time with one of my favorite couples, Alayna and Hudson. Found in You picks up immediately where the first book left off and I felt like I had only just finished the first book, though it was months ago. The story and the characters had stuck with me and the author immediately brought me right in to the moment: into Alayna’s whirlwind emotions and the amazingly sexy, domineering presence of Hudson.
This second book in the series completely lived up to my high expectations. We really got to see growth in these two characters as they continue to struggle to find trust and stability and a real, solid relationship. It’s absolutely clear how they feel about each other: the chemistry is beyond sizzling, the sex HOT, and their love towards each other is genuine. Old habits and insecurities get in the way as more past secrets are uncovered. Alayna in particular shows how far she has come in her handling of the precarious situation and volatile emotions. It made me like her even more: she’s far from perfect but recognizes her her issues and does her best to deal with them. She may be neurotic and a little insecure but her strength and determination to move past it is admirable. And Hudson, well he’s Hudson. Sexy as all hell and I can’t help but feel like his dark past makes him even more alluring, especially now that he too is trying to move beyond it.The story holds some definite surprises and I was rooting for this couple all the way through.
This book is romantic, super sexy and moves along quickly and smoothly. It’s not without darkness and angst but it’s well-balanced with humor and warmth. I truly enjoyed getting deeper in to this couple’s lives and reading what felt like a natural progression for these characters. I am eagerly awaiting the next installment in this series.
*I received a complimentary copy of the book in exchange for a fair and honest review.
