5 Star Review: Finn by Ahren Sanders

I thought I knew what love was, but I didn’t have a f*%king clue. Now, I’m in the fight of my life to win over the woman who owns my soul. ~ Finn Black

The face of an angel…
The heart of a saint…

One look, one smile, and I didn’t stand a chance. The instant my eyes landed on Presley Chambers, I was a goner. She was a force of nature that turned my world upside down. Sweet, sassy, and sexy as hell, she brought me to my knees.

But she isn’t just any woman, she’s a gift, she’s a goddess, she’s my disease… and I’ll fight like hell to erase her fears.

Sometimes fate has other plans. Now our future is in her hands.

I can only hope she’ll give us the chance we both deserve.

The idea that someone could possess me was insane… until I met Finn Black.~ Presley Chambers

The face of Adonis…
The heart of a hero…

Finn Black infiltrated my safe world the minute he breathed my name. He broke down my barriers and convinced me to take a chance. For the first time ever, I was living my life with a man who promised me a future only dreams are made of.

Sometimes the line between love and longing are tested.

He’s asked me to trust him, to trust us, but the fear of losing him became too much.

Now I must decide if I’m willing to take a leap of faith, and hope he’ll be there to catch me.

My Review

I received an advanced copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.

A few things happened while reading this book. The first thing to happen was that I cried my eyes out, while reading the first couple chapters. Then I went on FB to yell at Ahren for making me cry right away and to also tell her that she is very clever and also a bit mean. ;-) The second thing to happen was that I fell in love with Finn pretty much from the moment he was introduced in the book. That dude is the ultimate book boyfriend. **swoon** The third thing was that we were introduced to Finn's friend and I decided that I want to Weird Science (yeah, i'm using that as a verb) EVERY SINGLE ONE OF THEM.

From the moment Finn meets Presley, he is drawn to her. He can't explain it, but when fate intervenes and he sees her again, he knows he has to do something about it. And while Presley feels the same way about Finn, she is hesitant to start anything with him. She has a habit of playing it safe with her relationships and starting one with Finn would be the opposite of that. Finn's nickname is "Hero" and he was given that name for a reason. He is everything Presley should run away from, but everyone in their lives, and I mean EVERYONE, can see that there is something between them.

Finn. Finn basically perfect. When he asks Presley out and she turns him down because she has a standing date with her niece Winnie, he doesn't hesitate to join them. So Presley and Finn's first date is at a Chick-fil-A, with a four year old. And if that isn't enough to warm your heart, this exchange happened:

“Hey, what about me?” She puffs and waves at herself.
What happens next will stay in my brain forever.Finn reaches across the table and takes her small hand in his, at the same time his grip on my shoulder tightens.
“Pardon me, little miss, I meant I’m lucky enough to have two dates tonight, Presley and Winnie.”
Her little face lights up, and she nods approvingly at me.
Instantly, my heart melts.
Me too, Presley. Me too.

And that isn't the only time Finn does something like that. Throughout the course of the book, he not only tells Presley how much he cares for her, but he is constantly showing her. Their path to a happily ever after isn't easy and they have to go through some difficult stuff to get there. They both do things that had me yelling at my e-reader and telling them to get their shizz together and stop acting like children, BUT I never once doubted the feelings they had for each other. 

This book is a stand alone, but some of the characters were introduced in Ahren's Surrender series. (Full disclosure: I have not read the Surrender series so all the characters were knew to me. I HATED Raven. So much that I don't even want to go back and read her story. Okay, maybe I will some day, but as of right now I just can't. Haha.) So if you enjoyed that series, you will want to pick up Finn. But you don't have to have read that series to enjoy this book. So go ahead and scroll on up back up the page and click on your platform of choice and meet Finn and the gang. You won't be disappointed. 

Ahren spent her formative years living in an active volcano. There her family made collectible lava art. She studied rock collecting at the Sorbonne in France. There she met the love of her life-her pet pig Sybil. She returned to the states and started writing. She is happily married to a guy who used to live under a bridge and she met while pole-dancing. They have one amazing daughter.

Now, meet the real me. I grew up in the south and consider myself a true “Southerner”. Most of the special locations mentioned in my books are reflections of my favorite places. Living on the Florida coast, my family spends a lot time at the beach, which is where I usually can be found with a book in my hand.
