All I’ve ever wanted was for someone to choose me. My mother didn’t. My father didn’t. The beautiful boy next door, who grew up to marry me, didn’t. Neither did the next man with whom I thought my heart was safe.
Back in the Bay area, three thousand miles from New York City, I can start fresh. Become one with the sea again, rise or fall on the tide of my own choices. But on the first day of my bright new life, the darkest shadows of my past follow me through my office door. The two men whose names are definitely not on my five-year plan.
If I let it consume me—my need for one man, my love for the other—the darkness will swallow me whole. I can’t let that happen. Not again. This time, the waves of emotion crashing against my heart won’t drown me. This time, I get to choose my happy ending.
There’s just something about Burgoa’s writing that sucks me in. Found is a captivating and gut wrenching epic love story. It took me through all kinds of turmoil and emotions, constantly causing my brain and my heart to battle with each other.
While Found can absolutely be read as a standalone, we do meet Hazel and Scott in Flawed. From the beginning, I was dying for their story and begging for them to provide us with that epic love that we all were craving. Thankfully we got it. Is their story painful? Sure. So many raw emotions going on and too many factors that can easily confuse their situation but ultimately these two have to claw their way to each other.
I know that a lot of people don’t like love triangles. I personally love them. The character development in this story had me all over the place. I was always pulling for Scott but I can see the appeal of the other. True testament to the author. I want to feel something for both, just with a bit more for one and that’s exactly what happened.
“Of all the unforeseeable curveballs thrown my way, she’s the biggest, brightest and best I’ve had to confront in my entire life. She’s the most terrifying challenge and the most amazing reward.”
If you are looking for an angsty love that will war on you emotions yet leave you feeling full of love, then Found is the book for you!
