Power. Money. Control. Love.
He has all but one.
When movie star, Evan Carlson, discovers his girlfriend’s picture with another man splashed on the cover of gossip magazines, he decides he’s had enough of his fishbowl life and attempts to outrun the media frenzy his relationships have become. Driving until the road stops, he ends up on the remote and quaint Perry Island, where a heartthrob can blend in like the locals and be a beach bum as long as he wants. All that changes when Evan meets Haven Owen, aspiring songwriter and the girl he just can’t get enough of. A summer romance turns into something much deeper and Evan gets tangled in his own web of lies to keep Haven in his life. But when his ex tracks him down, Evan learns there are some things you just can’t outrun.
Is the cost of love, losing all control?
My Review: 3.5 stars!!!
This is a sweet, endearing read. The first book I read from this author, once I got connected to the storyline and got to know the characters a bit more, I really enjoyed it. While it started out slow for me, once the characters connected and the story started building up, I enjoyed it more.
I love to day dream. One of my recurring dreams includes what if I met a famous actor and we fell in love! This story is the basis of my day dream. A hunky, southern actor wants out of the spotlight and spends the summer in a secluded small town. Haven, the small town beauty doesn’t recognize him and they begin a summer romance.
Haven and Evan have an endearing relationship. The two main characters compliment each other and made me root for them. The story is predictable, but that didn’t prevent me from enjoying their relationship. One thing I would have liked more was if it was written in first person. First person stories connect me to the characters on a deeper level and I think that would have helped me connect sooner with these two love birds.
Finding Haven is a fun and enjoyable read for any new adult, romance fan. I’m excited to hear that there’s a next book… Red Lines, that should be FUN!
