    Loved it

    Brenda Novak kicks off a new series with another fantastic read. I absolutely loved this book. Every little thing about it. Simply could not put it down. When Cora Kelly shows up at the New Horizons Boys Ranch, Elijah Turner has the feeling that there is more to why she's there than just a job. Never one to trust easily, Eli plans to keep an eye on Cora. Of course, no hardship there since she was very easy on the eyes. As time goes on the two get closer but Eli is more certain than ever Cora is up to something. Will she ever let her secrets out? Will those secrets tear Cora and Eli apart? I definitely recommend this one.

    Finding Our Forever by Brenda Novak

    Finding Our Forever by Brenda Novak Adoption. Are the children instinctively wired to try to find their birth mothers? While this is a beautiful and touching romance, it was also tense waiting for the unfortunate time when secrets are revealed. We don't want people to be hurt by our actions, but lies and secrets are often the catalyst for pain. Superbly written covering all the family dynamics of adoption and abuse. And romance. I'm looking forced to more of this series. Excerpt: “As promised, in a short time, he had her vehicle completely unloaded. “Thank you,” she said as he put down the last box. “See you later.” His conscience appeased, he started toward his truck. “Eli?" He stopped again. “Yes?” “I—I have a boyfriend. Sort of.” He felt his eyebrows slide up. Then he almost laughed. She was assuming he had an ulterior motive for helping her. “I’m sorry if I gave you the wrong impression,” he said. “I was only trying to make your move a little easier.” Her cheeks bloomed red. “Right. Of course you were. I’m sorry.” Cora’s face burned as she watched Eli drive off. “What’s wrong with you?” she muttered to herself. “Of course he was just trying to help. It’s not as if he asked for your number.” That blunder actually said more about her than it did him, she realized. He hadn’t been anything but circumspect. She was the one who’d had a difficult time keeping her eyes off him. She was so aware of him on a sexual level that it was hard to act as if she wasn’t, which was odd. She couldn’t remember having such a strong reaction to any other man. That was the reason she’d suddenly tried to throw up a barrier. She’d been hoping to give him a reason to look at her differently—or stay away entirely—and wound up making a fool of herself instead. “I told you I didn’t need your help,” she grumbled to him even though he was gone, and cringed at the prospect of having to face him at the staff meeting in a few hours. “You had to do that on your first day here, Cora?” she said as she started to unpack.” Excerpt From: Novak, Brenda. “Finding Our Forever.”

    Great start to this series

    Not having been adopted (or even been close to anyone that I knew was adopted) it is hard to imagine what kind of questions Cora has about herself. To finally be able to put that restlessness behind her is a temptation she can't pass up. Eli comes from kinda the opposite point - he knows where he came from, it just isn't a happy place. Their pasts have left both of them with some baggage that they have to figure out how to handle. Baggage that is only complicated when they start to fall for each other, thanks to their ties to Aiyana. This is not the first of Novak's books I've read ... and it DEFINITELY won't be the last. I love how she somehow makes Finding Our Forever real and pretty drama-free, but still engrossing. There is so much growth and discovery for both Cora and Elijah and yet when everything comes to a head they don't let things overwhelm them. It would have been so easy for Novak to have them weighted down with hurt feelings and damaged pride, but instead they handle things with grace and sensitivity. There are so many possible options for where to go with future books and, as a fan of damaged heroes, I'm looking forward to all the possibilities! *** I voluntarily read a Review Copy of this book. All opinions stated are solely my own and no one else’s. ***
