Publisher's Summary

I've always been lost . . .

Abandoned by a father who didn't want me. Cherished by a stepfather, though I wasn't his. Shattered by a boy who swore he loved me. But I belonged nowhere, to no one. Then I met Owen, the sweet-talking hockey player who made me love him. He gave me the courage to trust in someone besides myself. He showed me a love I longed for. When an unwanted ghost comes knocking on my door, my heartbreaking history threatens to repeat itself. But where do I turn if I lose everyone? And how do I find where I belong, when I'm still Finding Me?

Finding Your Sky Full of Stars

What did you love best about Finding Me?

I loved the sweet love story between Bella and Owen. Lauren Sweet brought the characters to life perfectly!

Who was your favorite character and why?

Owen of course! OT is a thoughtful, swoon worthy, hockey playing gentleman with a heart of gold. He'll definitely be inducted into the book boyfriend hall of fame.

What does Lauren Sweet bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

Owen's southern drawl! It was perfect and really added to his charm and character!

Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

I don't want to spoil the book/audio for any one, so I'll call it the conflict between Owen and Bella at his apartment the morning after the game with the hockey scout and the aftermath that followed. My heart definitely hurt for both of them as they tried to figure things out.

Any additional comments?

This was a very sweet and swoony romance with a wonderful cast of characters! I loved the story and narration and hope to listen to more titles from Stephanie Rose in the future!

Sweet Contemporary Romance

Bella has been burned by her Dad & Ex-boyfriend. Her Dad left her when she was young but her stepfather has taken care of her like she is his own. Her ex-boyfriend has humiliated her in front of her whole high school by cheating on her while away at college and having pics posted online where everyone could see.

When Bella leaves for college, she decides to keep guys at a distance but Owen slowly breaks her wall piece by piece. Owen is a sweet hockey player that steals her heart. There are some ups and downs but it concludes with a sweet HEA.

The narrator does a fairly good job bringing the story to life. Owen's accent was great and very fitting.

I'm looking forward to listening to more books by this talented author.

A Sweet Romance

I got this book via audiobook boom. I have always liked sweet romances that the H and h are nice characters. Owen and Bella's story is one of those. They meet in a class that Owen is having trouble with and he gets Bella to tutor him. The romance is up and down but Owen is very determined and does not allow Bella to get away. I really liked that the narrator was understated. She allowed the story to speak for itself.

Sassy Bronx Meets Southern Sexy!

It was so much fun catching up with Bella after I fell for the adorable little girl in Always You and the emerging young teen in the novella Always Us. This can definitely be read/listened to as a standalone though. In Finding Me, Bella is off to her freshman year of college. She is attending a school 4 hrs away from home to re-invent herself after a terribly embarrassing breakup with her ex-boyfriend. He made her believe she wasn't enough for him. This raised all kinds of insecurities of always being left behind, first from her father when she was small and now her first crush. When she meets Owen, a cocky hockey player with a sexy southern accent, she doesn't believe she is good enough for him. Owen was sick of girls only wanting him because he was on the hockey team. He liked that Bella was smart, independent, and beautiful. She didn't care how many goals he scored, she liked him for who he was and wouldn't let him get away with anything. He was patient and determined to break through her defenses and make her his. I liked how their relationship grew naturally, first as friends and study partners, then gradually into more. Bella liked how funny and sweet Owen was and enjoyed his teasing so much that she would finally give in to his southern charm. They were really great together and their chemistry was combustible. This story had several events and plot twists that tested their bonds, added suspense, and kept me engaged. The narrator, Lauren Sweet, had the perfect voice for young adult females but she was also able to effortlessly move to the male voices. She is a wonderful story teller. I thoroughly enjoyed this sweet, sexy, and exhilarating story.

Sweet Southern Charm and his City!

I really loved this coming-of-age story.
Bella has a lot to deal with in her freshman year away at college, in addition to your typical first year college stuff! Not only is she still getting over her ex-boyfriend's betrayal, but a ghost from her past decides to make an unwelcome appearance. Throw in Owen and the girl has almost more than she can handle! But she's one strong gal- which is thanks to her wonderful stepdad Lucas, who I just adored in this book.
Owen is such a sweetheart, I can hardly contain my love for him! He's so into Bella and it was just the swooniest thing. They have their moments of doubt and frustration, but you can just feel the love that grows between them throughout the book.
I laughed and cried, and swooned my little heart out reading this book.
And can we just talk about that epilogue for a minute??? I forgot how amazing it was until I listened to it again!

Lauren Sweet did a great job narrating this book! Loved her take on Owen's southern drawl and Bella's innocence.
