Links to the book:
Alayna Withers has only had one kind of relationship: the obsessive, crazy stalker kind. Now that Hudson Pierce has let her into his heart, she’s determined to stay away from her past tendencies and develop their love into more than just amazing sex. At least Hudson is as dedicated to her as she is to him, though she could do without his new found jealousy and need to control everything. To complicate matters, Hudson has his own baggage including a penchant for mind games and a hateful alcoholic mother who’s set on destroying any happiness he might find with Alayna.
Needing insight, Alayna turns to an unlikely source—Celia Werner. Celia’s been in love with Hudson herself and knows how to ride the rocky waves of the emotionally closed-off man. But when Celia’s true motivations behind their friendship are revealed, Hudson’s commitment might not be as solid as Alayna thinks, and even their all-consuming passion for each other isn’t enough to fix their mistrusts. This is the first relationship where Alayna hasn’t spiraled out of control. And she might lose Hudson anyway…
There are so many books of this kind that it is more and more difficult for a book to stand out. Found in you is definitely a must read, especially if you are one of those who simply love dominant billionaires with huge egos. You know exactly what I am talking about, right? There is no need to explain. You can find Hudson right next to Gideon, Christian, Gabriel, Jesse and James. I am pretty sure that they would be great friends.
I was more or less bored with this genre and with this type of books as they are more and more similar each passing day. I started reading this one and I knew that it was something special. I would like to thank Atom tours and the author for providing me with a copy.
I am not going to tell you that this book is just as good as Gabriel’s Inferno or This Man trilogy, because it is not, but it is close to being that good.
What truly makes this book stand out it the plot which is quite unique and most importantly the characters. Hudson is like no other character. While reading the first book, I had a hard time believing that he could be the kind of person everyone made him out to be. Now, after discovering so many new things and I can truly see that he is or at least was that cruel.
I was so scared for Laynie as she was starting to become the person she was before. There were a few signs that she was going to have a relapse. I loved seeing her with H, but I was a bit apprehensive. I started to doubt that she belonged with Hudson especially after some other secrets were revealed. I was so proud of her when she reacted better than expected when she finally learnt the truth about Hudson. His secrets were really, really dark and most sane people wouldn’t have reacted nicely. It was a welcomed surprised to see that Laynie was able to handle knowing the truth.
The relationship between H and Alayna changed dramatically from the one they had in the first book. They are becoming closer and they started learning things about each other. Their relationship is a bit more stable and they are moving forward as individuals and as a couple.
I loved the new characters. I was nice seeing Hudson with his family despite the fact that his family is dysfunctional.
The title is perfect, the cover as well.
Overall, I would definitely recommend reading this book as it is well written and quite different from the other books out there.
