When you’ve lived your life as a criminal…
When you’ve done unspeakable things …
When your soul has become dark and stained…
The path to redemption begins where you least expect it.
Kyle Sommerville is in hiding and doesn’t want to be found by anyone. Certainly not by his quirky, free-spirited neighbor who’s managed to push her way past the walls he’s built around him. But Jane Cresson’s indomitable will and insatiable curiosity about her reclusive neighbor makes it impossible for Kyle to stay immersed in his dark world.
Little by little, she claws through his shell.
Day by day, she gets him to smile a little more.
Night by night, they both find pleasure they never knew existed.
When Kyle’s terrible past is exposed, Jane begins to think she’s in over her head. Can her love for this broken man finally clear his path to redemption, or will Kyle’s darkness finally extinguish every bit of hope she’s put into him?
“It sucked donkey dick being dead and having to hide.
This snippet from the prologue is the overall theme of Kyle’s life in Finding Kyle. Knowing he’s going to leave, knowing people are looking for him and he can’t allow anyone to make a place in his life, Kyle goes into full hermit mode. Was he a jerk sometimes? Yeah, but I could overlook it. He felt like he had to be, so whatevs. I will say, he is the one with shit taste in beer 😉 Oh, and on a side note, I think Kyle may be one of the most foul-mouthed heroes of Sawyer’s that I’ve read (and I liked it).
Jane is one of the most fun leading ladies I’ve read in a while. I loved her quirky, upbeat personality and those movie quotes! So much fun 🙂 Her relationship with Kyle is the perfect example of opposites attract. She is freaking sunshine and daisies to his overcast skies and cactus. Plus, her friendship with Miranda (who is SO fab!!) was another example of her outgoing personality. They are night and day, and, like with Kyle, it works wonderfully.
The suspense in this book is limited, the focus being on Kyle and Jane not his impending doom. While I love me some good suspense, it was nice to have it limited to the fringes of the story, not front and center all the time.
