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.

Review for Finding You

Review for Finding Me

OMG This is such an amazing series. And I think Finding Us just might be my favorite! 

In Finding Us we learn about Low (aka Willow Knoxx) and her relationship with Tate. However, a good majority of the story is about Low herself and how she became Low. This isn’t a bad thing. There’s plenty of hot Tate going on and I enjoyed their relationship a lot. But hearing about Low…it was…..special? I felt honored to be inside such an unbelievably strong, fascinating and courageous woman’s head and hearing her thoughts.

We learn all about Low and Willow, her childhood, her parents and who she is supposed to become. She is determined not to allow this - she’s not like her family. She’s in this situation almost alone, however she does have one person that knows exactly what she’s going through. I won’t spoil it but I was a little shocked! The things he does for her…simply amazing and so selfless. 

Her relationship with Tate, that she tries to fight but can’t, becomes her will, to not only survive, but her will to become something better than her family. What lengths will she go to to protect her friends? They are all she has and she can’t loose them, but if someone was to get hurt, would she crumble under the guilt? How will her friends take the fact that she’s lied to them for six years? 

I loved this series!! It’s so exciting!! It’s not about love and romance, well it not ALL about love and romance. The story and history and depth of characters are so huge that it makes the love and romance so much deeper and more meaningful. I also loved that it’s not about “normal” families. Families come in all sorts of packages and sometimes friends are way more important to you than your family.

I highly recommend this series and I want to give a huge shout out to S.K. Hartley for some seriously amazing writing!! LOVED!! 

“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.

S.K. Hartley is a mother, wife and a writer. Based in the not so sunny North West of England you can find her either glued to her computer desk, in the public library (Yes, they do still exist!) or floating around her favourite authors books signings.

S.K. Hartley has an unhealthy obsession with coffee, chocolate and retro computer games and a healthy obsession of stalking indie authors.
