CHANGES & MERGER

Hello! I'm currently in the process of merging my 3 sites to make it easier for me to keep everything up.

So all book tours that have a ROMANCE title will be posted to the new site instead of here on Booksniffer Book Reviews. All non-romance titles will still be posted here.

Those posts can be found here: http://loveineverypage.weebly.com/

I'm sorry for any inconvenience this may cause, but it'll be better in the long run.

When I was seventeen, I disappeared. I walked out the door of my apartment with a backpack and never looked back. I left the life of Cora Mitchell behind, seeking freedom from my real-life nightmare.

But my freedom came with a cost. I lived a fictitious life for the next six years, never letting anyone close enough to see underneath the fa├žade that was Andra Walker.

I was content with my simple little life.

Until I met Julian.

And the moment I started allowing myself to open up, allowing someone to see through the superficial, was the very same moment the Monster from my past would return to find me.



THE GIST: It's been 7 years since Andra Walker left the Monster and her old life behind. She's now living and working on a friend's ranch in Colorando. Even with the threat of the Monster finding her again, she's happy with the life she's built. The only thing she doesn't like is the lies that she needs to tell people. She never thought anything was missing from life until she met Julian Jameson, an author staying at the ranch for the next month. What starts as a casual thing quickly develops into a deep love for each other. But the past is never far and Andra will have to choose if she's going to keep running or stand and fight back.

WHAT I LIKED: Andra is a character that I really liked and she's very easy to relate to. Not necessarily the circumstances, those can only be related to if you've gone through the same thing, but how she handled and overcame those circumstances so create her own life. I also really liked Julian. I thought that he was a really good match for Andra. They challenge each other in the best ways. I liked how the story is like a mystery within a mystery. There are so many questions still left unanswered, and I'm really wanting the next book to see what happens next. The title of the book has a double meaning that I didn't really see until closer to the end of the book, and then when I finally got the double meaning I thought that it was really cleaver.

WHAT I DISLIKED: You know, I honestly can't think of anything that I didn't like about HE FOUND ME.



Andra: Before, Andra was Cora Mitchell, but after her mother's death and years of sexual abuse by her uncle, she made her escape with Six's help and became Andra Walker. She guards her heart closely and doesn't do relationships, because she knows that she'd never be able to be honest with the one she's with. She loves her life on the ranch and doesn't plan to leave it any time soon. Somehow Julian makes his way through all of her defenses and she finds herself falling for him.

Julian: A mystery writer who is staying at the ranch for a month while his house is being remodeled to write his next book. He is instantly attracted to Andra and they start a casual relationship relatively quick. He's very observant and sees Andra better than she would like.

Six: An old friend of Andra's mother. He's the one that helped Andra escape from the Monster. He's like an older brother to Andra.


Rosa: A mother figure for Andra. She's also a really good friend of Andra's. She is one of the only two people who know Andra's past. She's the owner of the ranch.

Dylan: The head ranch hand. He and Andra had a night together years ago, but now they are just really good friends.










Sexual abuse is a terrible thing to experience, but I think that it's even worse when it's done to you by a relative, someone who is supposed to protect and care for you. The Monster is only related to Andra through marriage and there are a lot of things involved that even Andra doesn't know. Her mother's death is now suspect and there is mention of a lot of mony involved. I'm looking forward to seeing the bigger picture.



9 days. That is how long Andra and Julian have known each other. Their relationship starts out as a casual arrangement, but as they get to know each other, deep feelings start to develop. Though they've only been together for 9 days, as I was reading it felt like a lot longer. I really liked that even though it was such a short time, there was a natural flow to their relationship that made the 9 days seems like months or even years. Andra's situation made for a feeling a possible heartbreak ever present. Toward the end, I was really worried that something terrible was going to happen. Andra and Julian compliment each other so well and I was hoping with everything I had that they could make it work. The next book is really going to show us how strong their love for each other really is. I'm really excited.
