~ Excerpt ~
Later that night Knox takes me to bed. He helps me rid myself of clothes and I do the same to him. We climb into his bed and lie facing each other. Knox pulls me closer to him and puts my arms around his neck. I cradle him to my chest, content in this moment.
“I’m falling hard, Jas.” Knox says with so much emotion in his voice it makes me want to be a girly girl and cry.
My heartbeat picks up. I run my hand through his hair, comforting him. “Me too.”
“I’m still trying to find my way out of this nightmare I’ve been living in.” Knox sighs deeply.
“I’m still trying to find my way in life.” I place a finger under Knox’s chin and tilt his head up. What I see in his eyes is like a mirror of my own. “We’re both lost. We’re trying to find our way and we’re working on finding us.”
Knox’s breath hitches before he crashes his mouth to mine. “We’re finding us.”
I bite down on my bottom lip and Knox reaches up and releases it with his thumb before he kisses it. Something in this moment changes between us. We both admitted that we are finding us, finding our way to be with each other. This road is going to be bumpy as hell but it will be worth all the damage once we get to the other side. I hope.

~ Review ~
Finding Us was my first read from Megan Smith…..yes I have her other books sitting pretty on my kindle but I just haven’t gotten to them. There was just something about this cover that sucked me and I just needed to read it. I am so glad that I did.
Jasmine has left her old life behind to start a life of her own in New York City. Determined to break free from her parents hold, it’s just her and best friend Summer making a go of it. It’s not until Summer meets her boyfriend Rex that we are introduced to Knox Mitchell.
Knox just about knocked me out! I looked forward to the end of each chapter to just get a little bit deeper inside his head. You could tell he was conflicted between his head and his heart but I enjoyed taking his journey see which one would win out.
There were a few twists and turns in the story. Some I saw coming and some I did not. Secrets are revealed and honestly I would have liked a little more angst and emotion. Jasmines acceptance of everything was not genuine enough for me. I understand the “love conquers all” theory and I would have been okay with it if it wasn’t resolved so quickly.
That being said, aside from that I truly enjoyed the journey with Jasmine and Knox and loved being introduced to the close knit group of friends that Knox has. I am hoping that we may get to see more inside the lives of Cade and Jeremy and soon.
