Alayna Withers has only had one kind of relationship: the kind that makes her obsessive and stalker-crazy. Now that Hudson Pierce has let her into his heart, she’s determined to break down the remaining walls between them so they can build a foundation that’s based on more than just amazing sex. Except Hudson’s not the only one with secrets.My Review:
With their pasts pulling them into a web of unfounded mistrust, Alayna turns to the one person who knows Hudson the best—Celia, the woman he almost married. Hoping for insight from someone who understands all sides of the story, Alayna forms a bond with Celia that goes too far—revealing things about Hudson that could end their love for good.
This is the first relationship where Alayna hasn’t spiraled out of control. And she might lose Hudson anyway...
I loved Fixed on You (see my review), and upon finishing it, immediately started Found in You. I wanted to see where Hudson and Alayna went next, because a girl with stalker tendencies and a guy with multiple unknowns adds up to a whole bunch of mystery to unfold. The path to Hudson and Alayna's couplehood is not easy or light. They both have personal issues as well as messed up pasts. Celia, one predominant factor in this book, is just as mysterious as Hudson, and makes for quite the interesting read, trying to figure out what is real or not.
I worried more about Alayna this time around with her side of crazy. The choices she was making... well, you knew they were going to blow up in her face at some point. But I still completely love Alayna's "voice", the crazy thoughts and all. I find her completely fascinating. And even when she was doing things I didn't agree with, I loved seeing every side of her, messy or not. Hudson remains ever the illusive, yet appealing, mystery.
I also worried that they were all physical, and were missing the other factors that make relationships last. But reading this brings out more depths to them together, more depths to their attraction beyond the physical. And despite the brevity of their relationship, I find the two of them really connecting in exciting ways beyond sex (because they've got that base more than covered). I like that they are both a little messed up but somehow find a kindred spirit in the other. I'm looking forward to the continuation of their story.
