Title- He Found Me
By- Whitney Barbetti
Publication Date- May 29, 2014
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 façade 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.
He Found Me is the first book in the series of the same name by Whitney Barbetti. The story revolves around Cora, who ran away from her abusive uncle at the age of seventeen and now, years later, she lives in my home state of Colorado under the name of Andra. Andra then meets young author Julian, and the two of them seem to be the perfect match for each other.
While I did think the love story between Andra and Julian was a little quick, I liked the progression and interaction between the two of them. They did actually seem to mesh perfectly and complete each other. I would like to know much more about Julian's secrets and I do hope they are explained in later installments of the series.
Overall this is an excellent debut novel and I highly recommend it to romance lovers. I guarantee you will fall in love with Julian and want nothing more than to stand beside Andra as she struggles to overcome her demons. Very well executed debut.
I am married with two boys. When I’m not changing diapers or cutting food into tiny bites, I escape to Starbucks for hours.
I love music and have a playlist for everything.
I like watching creepy shows when I am home alone but then I instantly regret them once my mind starts breeding irrational fears.
I have about 20 bacon things in my fridge.
