I always enjoy this author’s books. Sweet and/or sexy they are always engaging and they always entertain me for a good couple of hours. ‘Finding Kyle’ was well written and well developed with two main characters I liked from the very beginning, an interesting story line and a lovely romance. In other words – a fantastic read! If you like you heroes to be tortured, yet very sexy and sweet and your heroines delightful in every possible way, then for sure you will want to meet Kyle and Jane.
Kyle Sommerville had lived his last couple of years like a criminal, doing unspeakable things and losing himself in the process. An ATF agent, Kyle is in hiding, waiting to testify against the dangerous MC he was undercover with for several years. Kyle obviously doesn’t want to be found, wanting to keep for himself, not wanting to make friends or get attached to anything or anyone. Forced by circumstances to see and do despicable things, Kyle is tortured, having nightmares, not being able to forgive himself for what he did for so many years.
“Jane is a force of nature that has the strength of a hurricane, and f*ck if she didn’t roll right over me.”
Jane is an art teacher. She teaches middle, junior and high school, occasionally tutoring as well. She’s Kyle’s new neighbor, who from the moments she lies her eyes on him, she wants to know everything about him. Needless to say, Jane does everything in her power to get to know him, to make him talk, being friendly and cute as a button.
If at first, Kyle tries to resist Jane’s charms, as times passes, Jane slowly manages to get under his skin. Despite the fact that Kyle knows he should stay away from his tempting neighbor, he simply can’t. Jane makes him smile and most of all hope, getting him out of his shell and bringing him pleasure in so many ways.
I really enjoyed this one! The engaging story line, the intriguing, rough around the edges hero, the quirky, friendly heroine, everything was done really well. Withdrawn and anti-social, out hero was very easy to like. Sacrificing his life to bring down the notorious MC, Kyle is a broken man I sympathize with from the start. A good man, he believes he’s not worthy of a good life.
Jane was a fun heroine I adored from the very beginning. Her portrayal was fantastically done. I loved her colorful personality, her perseverance and her thoughtfulness. She’s quirky, funny and kind of a dork with her movie references and overall, a very endearing and refreshing heroine. Her wittiness made me smile many times and I loved her for the fact that accepted out hero with his past and everything, making him smile and giving him hope as the story unfolded. With Kyle she was sweet, understanding and quite patient not pushing him…too much to open up about his past.
“I couldn’t imagine doing something like this… all normal and romantic. It’s a completely foreign concept, and yet I’m drawn even harder to these things with Jane. My curiosity about this laid-back, normal way of life is piquing, and perhaps I’m even remembering a bit how to live this way.”
The way Jane got under our hero’s skin was enjoyable and entertaining and the way she torn down his walls was fantastic. I loved these two as a couple. What starts as something meaningless slowly becomes so much more, not only for Jane, but for Kyle too. Low in angst and drama, Kyle’s road to redemption and happiness was intriguing and well done, filled with many sweet and sexy moments that had me glued to the pages.
Personally, I wouldn’t have minded the story to have more suspense and/or action, but overall I liked it and found it to be enjoyable and well developed.
Overall, a fantastic read!
