Meet Callie, a chubby-sexy nineteen-year-old girl who fears high heels, commitments, and has a love/hate relationship with her running shoes. Nine months of college down the drain and all she has to show for it is her freshman thirty. But alas, life has other crap plans for her--one that includes a strict regiment of "do this and do that" from her she-devil sister, all while trying to avoid the unavoidable. The unavoidable being Ky: the ex-best friend-turned-sex god who lives across the street. Meet Ky; a nineteen-year-old wanna be country music singer and a boy-turned-man who still wears a proverbial skateboard around his neck from wasted high school days. When Callie returns home, he realizes that she's exactly the muse he's been missing all this time. Now, if only she can stop running long enough to find out where their love could lead. 
FINDING HER WAY BACK is a new adult novel about finding love while learning how to love yourself. For all the chubby-sexy girls who tend to feel invisible, this one's for you!

“Okay. It’s settled. One date.” Lifting his palm, he pressed it against my cheek, holding it there. My skin tingled on contact, burning me in all sorts of ways. “But I think we need to try something out beforehand just to make sure that we know what we’re getting ourselves into.” “Um, what?” I stiffened, panicking at the possibilities of what he was saying. Sweat formed along the back of my neck, but I couldn’t move to wipe it away. Fuck. This wasn’t good. Without warning, he pressed his mouth against mine, taking my heart, body, entire soul by complete surprise. Ky captured me in all the ways a woman wanted to be captured by a man. And oh, what a damn delicious capture it was. I’d always wondered what it’d be like to kiss this boy. And it wasn’t because I saw him in that sort of light growing up either, just simple curiosity, to say the least But whatever preconceived notions I had about awkwardness and painful teeth clashing went out the window the moment his tongue pressed against my lips. Holy hell. Now this was a kiss. His fingers, strong and sure, tangled in my hair, releasing my ponytail with the flick of his thumb. Damn, he was good. My hair fell over my shoulders, shadowing my cheeks, as well as his. I scooted forward, pressing my hands onto the bareness of his neck, tracing the lines of his muscled skin on his shoulders like I’d wanted to do since I first got him in the room with me. I moaned, embarrassingly loud because yeah, this was beyond any kiss I’d ever experienced in the past. Slow, agonizing, and perfect. Ky made the act of kissing as sensual as having sex in a steamy shower. Not that I’d ever actually experienced hot, steamy shower sex or anything. But um, yeah, it was definitely on my bucket list.


4 Stars

Finding Her Way Back was a good book.  I enjoyed this authors writing ability to bring life to her characters.  Most of the time it was like I could feel the emotions coming right off the pages and sucking me in.  The story line flowed well and while you will feel a bit lost and you will be kept wondering what in the hell happened to make Callie the way she is, just be patient you will find out.  I am not a patient person and I was chomping at the bit to understand why the characters acted like they did.
Callie is a woman trying to run and forget the past but you can never really forget and it never helps to run, as she finds out.  Her, her family and her friends have been through a recent tragedy and something else happens as well that is quite unexpected. Same as in real life, some people handle things differently than others.  Some people do more harm to themselves emotionally because of this as well.
Her old friend Ky loves her and has loved her for a long time.  He is there to help her..help her heal, help her realize some things are beyond your control an no fault of your own.  He in essence protects her from her emotional wrecked self .  But will she get close enough to let him?  Will she come to terms with what happened and get through the near future with him by her side?  Can she find her way back to the carefree and loving teenager she used to be?
