Blog Tour & Giveaway for Finding Us by S.K. Hartley
Tate & Low's story.

I'm loud, I'm proud, and I like to bust balls in my spare time. At least, that's what Low Parker would do. But, she is just a mask, one that I have perfected over years of running. I am Willow Knoxx. Master of deception, secrets, and lies. I am the girl your mother told you to stay away from, and the girl your father fantasized about. I have been running for years, always looking over my shoulder. Now, the mask that I have perfected is about to disappear, and everything I have done to keep myself hidden is about to be revealed.

My Review

This book was so damn good and unique. We often see strong women in books but with this book the woman is badass and strong. I wouldn’t say she is the more dominate between the hero and heroine but she definitely has the ability to play that role.

Low/Willow has had a pretty rough life. She’s had to learn to defend herself from a really young age. I won’t say why but the life she had growing up has made her strong and extremely independent. She craves to lead a normal life but is in constant fear that her past will catch up with her. She’s finally found a resemblance of a normal life with Neva, her brother Tate, and their friends. That is, until she receives a message on her phone. Low still hides her true self. She still has to lie.

From the very beginning Tate has wanted Low. He is completely in love with her. He is the strong silent type but when pushed he damn sure lets people know his feelings. He understands there is something about Low that isn’t right. Although she has slowly opened up there are still parts of Low that Tate doesn’t know about. He’s willing to wait and be patient for when she is ready to reveal those parts to him.

S.K. Hartley has done such a fabulous job with this book. It draws you in from the very beginning and doesn’t let you go. Although Low is definitely capable of taking care of herself you still can’t help but feel sorry for her because of her situation. What these two characters go through is heartbreaking. The descriptions throughout the book leave you feeling like you are actually there witnessing the events. I absolutely loved the secondary characters, especially Jace, and I hope he has his own book. I will definitely be looking out for the next book in the series. This book deserves 5 captivating and outstanding stars!
“Enough room?” He growled, his brow arching at my comment. “Baby, I don’t think you get it yet. I want to consume your every thought, every movement, every desire.”

His hands suddenly cupped my face as he leaned in close, his breath caressing my lips like soft silk. My pulse skyrocketed at his closeness, as it did every time he was near, sending me dizzy with lust. I could feel the vulnerability snaking its way through my body, latching onto my crimson blood as it slowly seeped through my skin. I could physically smell my vulnerability as it permeated the air around us. I could smell it, taste it, see it. 

“Okay,” I squeaked, the fear of my secrets dripping from my soft voice.

“Listen, and listen good, Low. I will consume every part of you. I will consume every thought, every movement, every desire. You won’t be able to breathe without thinking of me, feeling me, wanting only me. Am I clear?”

Oh dear god.

I could feel the lump in my throat forming, choking me with every second that passed, seconds that felt like torturous hours.

“Yes,” I replied on a shaky breath.

Words had yet again failed me. I was sprouting one word answers because Tate did something to me that no man had ever accomplished. He made me feel. 

His lips suddenly crashed against my own, the power he held over me pushing boundaries I didn’t know were there. His teeth scraped against my bottom lip, pulling and tugging as if pleading for entry. My head screamed, begged, and bartered, yelling at me to stop, to push back and leave. But his lips and teeth held me captive, my heart jumping at the chance to finally overpower my head, all too willing to be his victim.
