Publisher's Summary

He's the hottest baller in the game. He'll risk it all for the girl no one sees. 

When I'm on the court, I don't just focus on the game.... I focus on everything, every minute detail subject to error, and it's my job to bring home that win. Throughout my life, that's all that's ever mattered to me - the win and the thrill of the game. 

But then I meet her. 

I meet Roxie and everything changes. She's the girl no one sees, completely opposite from the world I live in and the life I lead, but I don't care. She makes me better. She makes me see things in ways I never have before, and I think I do that for her, too. 

The problem is the complications in my life may see fit to end us, test her in ways I'm sure she's never been tested. My world doesn't come without trials, and with a history of my own faults, I'm completely exposed to her. 

I put it on the line for her, but I'm willing to do that and more to prove to her that she's everything. The issue has never resided in the pushback my life may bring because I'm willing to fight for us. I can handle whatever arises as the result of her and me. 

But can I handle what this girl may do to my heart?

Love the Story & Narrators brought it to life!

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

Absolutely loved this story. I haven't read anything by the author before but the description sounded interesting. It's about two college kids who are drawn together by unusual circumstances. She knew who he was; Griffin Chandler, captain and one of the star athletes on the Schools Basketball Team, popular and gorgeous. She (Roxie) kept to herself and tried to always fade into the shadows..... Until one night while doing laundry.
The author wrote the characters with great detail and they were very developed. Each person had their place in the story and played a great part in it. But the narrators gave it even more depth.
The story made me say "Awe", I even laughed out loud too. And the character of Griffin... WOW I doubt I will watch NCAA Basketball the same again.

Who was your favorite character and why?

I LOVED the main characters but Griffin was my favorite, however I think it's because of the narrator's voice. SWOOOOOON

What about Wen Ross and Kai Kennicott ’s performance did you like?

They were both AMAZING. They both gave the character's depth and emoted very well. I could close my eyes and picture the characters. As a female I will say that Ken's voice is VERY soothing. It's deep and rich, and he does the character's drawl effortlessly!! I will for sure look forward to listening to them both again!

If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

Can two people who are so different be so similar in ways they never imagined? Can trust, patience and Love conquer it all?

Any additional comments?

GET THIS BOOK... you will LOVE IT, just like I did!

Steamy Romance with a great storyline!

Would you listen to Found by You again? Why?

Yes. I enjoyed the chemistry between the two main characters. Though it took me a little bit to get used to the narrators, I did feel they did a great job in making the characters sound the way the story described.

What about Wen Ross and Kai Kennicott ’s performance did you like?

They didn't try to overdo the parts that were of the opposite sex. They did a great job of matching their voices to each others when reading.

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

I could have. I don't usually listen to books all in one sitting but the story definitely kept my interest.

Any additional comments?

It took me a chapter or two to get into the story because the characters seemed a little one dimensional at first, but once the story got going I began to really connect with them. I'm glad I stuck with it. I definitely recommend this for a listen.

Still Love it!

I really really enjoyed listening to one of my favorite books being read to me. I have read the story twice already and now I've listen to it being read to me. I still love this story. It is such a warm love story, I wish it was mine. Lol! Keep writing such great stories.

ok

I really liked this book and would have given it 5 stars if not for the use of God's name in vain. It had a great storyline and sexual storylines. A BWWM romance between an unlikely couple.

Female Narrator.

Couldn't they find a POC to read? Yes I can tell and it makes a difference.

Awesome Story made even more so by being audible!

I loved the story of Griffin and Roxy. I loved being able to hear the story unfold it definitely made me feel as I was in the story. Roxy and Griffin are a wonderful couple and I liked how I more involved in their relationship I felt by being able to hear the words rather than reading them. Wonderful job done by Wen Ross and Kai Kennicott.

Interesting story with stale writing.

There are three things I look for when listening to an audio book: 1) The story 2) The reader's performance 3) The writing from the author

This is one of those rare instances where the story is much stronger than the writing, but overall the story suffers from bland writing and that in turn affects the reader's performance.

The story is written like it's an instruction manual. He goes here. She picks this up. He feels this way. Things are dictated to you rather than the characters having any type of emotion or dialogue that truly affects them. A glaring example of this is when Griffin goes to the Chancellor's office. It's supposed to be a tense scene, but the conversation is pretty droll, and you get paragraphs of exposition telling us how Griffin feels rather than us actually discovering it ourselves with dialogue or character acting. It's like the author used the same 2000 words over and over again in different combinations. There are no variations in descriptions or creativity in the writing style. Which easily disconnects you and makes it so boring at times.

The readers do what they can with what they have, but often, it feels as if the sentences all have the same amount of syllables, which makes the reading feel parroted. It's very strange and disconnecting.

Aside from those huge aspects, the story is okay. Roxy and Griffin seem interesting and had the words been more creative, I would have been much more invested in their stories and them as characters.

There is one glaring thing that made me think the author either didn't research/consult, or is not a PoC. Its the part where Griffin wants to take Roxy back to his (his description) rural poor home in Texas, and this being his first interracial couple, Roxy does not say anything beforehand or wondering if there would be some discomfort in him showing up with a black girl. It only happens when she's been there a while and she just happens to recall herself being the only black person there. Come on. It seems her weight is more of a plot device than her race, and I find both weirdly handled.

I would think the fact that she's about 5'2" and he's 6'6" would be a more interesting thing to write about, especially when they are lovin' but nothing is really talked about it other than his 'size,' if you know what I mean. *sigh*

Overall it's not bad, but it's not super good or creative and feels like a waste of potential.

Loved it

I hope I get to read and listen to more or her books. Victoria H. Smith writes well I was caught up in the books. When I had to put it down I couldn't wait to pick it up again.

Loved It

This was a very good book. I loved the characters and the undying love they had for one another. I can not wait to read book two. I need the drama.
