I am finally free.
This is my chance for a fresh start.
My chance to live the way I want to.
Boston is my destination.
Just when I think things are going to get better from here, I meet him.
He is the image of masculinity, with rough edges I would love to soften. Although I wonder what it would be like to be with a man like him, I know it would never work. But, I do know two things, ever since I met him, I’m happy and he makes me feel safe. Both of those things lured me into taking a chance. I mean what’s life without taking any chances? It’s not much of a life without the risk of getting your heart broken.
I imagine that for Malcolm Davis, falling in love with someone would be akin to a hurricane; anything that stands in the path of what he wants; gets demolished.
Well, I guess my theory will be put to the test.
Finding a Way is a wonderful debut novel by TE Black. I wasn’t quite sure what to expect, as the synopsis was somewhat vague, but it intrigued me nonetheless. I was immediately hooked to the storyline once I started, and I was interested to see where the author would take all of her characters.
“There’s no stopping when love creeps up on you.”
From the moment we were introduced to Callie, I knew that I would be able to relate to her in so many different ways. Whether it was overcoming demons of her past or just discovering where she wanted her path to go in the present, she had a special quality that drew me to her. She was so independent and loyal that you can’t help but admire her more and more as the novel continues. Mac was such a complicated character that I really haven’t worked out how I feel about him yet. There were moments that I adored him and felt a soft spot developing. However there were other times where I actually hated his behavior, which in turn made me dislike him. For the most part though, I appreciated how possessive and adoring he was.
“Yeah, that’s what I’m feeling right now. Desire. Lust. Hope. All of the things I know are bad for me.”
I think my biggest drawback in this novel was the insta-love factor. I have a really hard time with the believability factor when that is present. While I understood their connection by the end, I did find myself sometimes rolling my eyes and scoffing at how fast paced their relationship progressed. Also, being as how the story takes place in Boston, as mentioned in the synopsis, I was really looking forward to that being an integral part of the story – especially since I’m from there. However, I felt like it was missing that scenery and culture and so I was a little sad. That could totally be a personal preference, but it still did leave me a little disappointed.
“I swear, I feel like she’s part of me. Her heartbeat is my heartbeat.”
Overall, I was quite impressed with Black’s debut novel. She has a knack for storytelling and pulling you into the world she wants to create. Her characters are also relatable and even the secondary personalities make you feel like they need a story. I am looking forward to seeing how this author grows and matures because I expect her to go far. I can’t wait to see what she will deliver in her next book.
I think my cock was hard before I even met her in person. Sierra wouldn’t shut the fuck up about how good looking her damn friend was the past two weeks. She kept making Evan promise he wouldn’t even pass her a second glance. Me, I planned on giving her plenty of glances if she had any of the sexy attributes Sierra described. Who knows, maybe I’d even give her the night of her life.
When she walked out her front door though, My mouth hit her perfectly maintained driveway. Sierra’s vivid description didn’t even do this girl justice. She was beautiful. It’s rare I use the term, but it was the only way to describe her. Light skin complemented by long auburn hair which cascaded down her back. Killer chest with a tight, flat stomach, followed by wide hips and thick short legs. She’s every man’s wet dream. Those damn blue eyes drew me in the minute I saw them. A mixture of dark and light that reminded me of the ocean—or some other sappy shit. She’s the perfect woman, and I knew I would have to have her sooner or later.
