Book Review: Found In You

FOUND IN YOU (Fixed, #2) by Laurelin Paige: Alayna Withers has only had one kind of relationship: the kind that makes her obsessive and stalker-crazy. Now that Hudson Pierce has let her into his heart, she’s determined to break down the remaining walls between them so they can build a foundation that’s based on more than just amazing sex. Except Hudson’s not the only one with secrets.

With their pasts pulling them into a web of unfounded mistrust, Alayna turns to the one person who knows Hudson the best—Celia, the woman he almost married. Hoping for insight from someone who understands all sides of the story, Alayna forms a bond with Celia that goes too far—revealing things about Hudson that could end their love for good.

This is the first relationship where Alayna hasn’t spiraled out of control. And she might lose Hudson anyway…

TeriLyn's thoughts: Found in You was a great follow-up to Fixed On You. Hudson and Alayna are fixated on each other. They believe in themselves more and more because of the need they feel for each other. However, their relationship is a mess, in my opinion, because of Alayna's admitted insecurities. She is so vulnerable to Hudson and tip toes around their issues because she's so scared of her past coming back to haunt her. She works on managing a few wrong relationships in this story in an effort to protect her relationship with Hudson. She has put a force field around them because she holds the relationship so sacred. Her fear of losing him is overwhelming and suffocating her at times. And while Hudson too has an ugly past, here we see him becoming so much more than the ugly. 

I enjoyed Hudson immensely in this book. He's forgiving, he looks past her faults always, and uses his manipulations to keep her near not hurt her. These two characters are so unique from other's I've read. The both have some extreme sociopathic tendencies that they're constantly working to keep in check. They have found kindred spirits in each other and are finally embracing real love. The trials they face are proving that they can overcome their pasts. They fight a lot and their fights are some of my favorite scenes. It's when they're most open, vulernable, raw, and honest which leads to intense physical connections that are equally as great. The villains of the book are equally as entertaining. I could sense the plotting from the first meeting while the main characters are in the dark. There are a couple of twists but no cliff hanger, which I love, and the writing is really good. I'm excited to read the conclusion to Hudson and Alayna's story in Forever With You.
