Being the wild child has worked for Mallory Vandaveer for most of her life. She’s the good time girl, up for anything–and everyone in her small town knows it. But when her sister came home after years of being away, long hidden secrets came out. Turns out, Mallory isn’t who she thought she was. And now everything starts to feel like a lie. In order to figure out who she is she’ll have to set out on a journey to find the one man who holds the answers.
Everett Boone is in hiding. Hiding from his past and the press and the demands of a career he put on hold after tragedy struck. When a young woman with secrets of her own blows into town and rents the apartment next to his, he’ll have to face the past he was trying to escape in order to understand his feelings for her.
They’ll both have to dig deep inside themselves to discover whether or not they’re capable of being enough for one another. Finding the person you’re meant to love isn’t the problem. Sometimes the hardest person to find is yourself.
Finding You (Escaping You) by Elizabeth Lee
My Rating 3 out of 5
Cute and enjoyable read. I actually liked Boone more than I liked Mallory. She had her moments but for me Boone was the star of the story. He isn't an alpha or a bad boy, just a guy trying to deal with life. No real drama, just some outbursts from Mallory and the fallout from her lie. One of Mallory's bad moments - the "Bar Scene". I totally agreed with Boone's reaction. I think the story needed just a little drama just to shake things up a bit.
Overall a good read and I loved the epilogue.
About the Author
Born and raised in the middle of a Midwestern cornfield (not literally, that would be weird), I’ve spent my entire life imagining stories. Stories where the right guy always gets the right girl, first kisses are as magical as they are on the big screen and anything is completely possible if you believe.
If I’m not reading, writing, enjoying drinks with my amazing group of girlfriends or chasing around a sarcastically funny kid, I’m probably watching television shows that were created for teenagers, while my husband teases that I’m too old to watch them.
