Finding Flynn by Alexandria Bishop
My rating: 3 of 5 stars
Ashtyn is ready for a great family vacation, but when she arrives at their destination her mother breaks the news that it will be just them. Not only will her father and sister be staying at home, her parents are getting a divorce and her mother wants her to stay in Oregon after the summer ends. What has quickly become the worst summer of her life begins to turn around when she meets Flynn at the local pub and they hit it off. Although neither of them are looking for a relationship, their instant connection pulls them together and they begin to spend more and more time together. But Flynn is keeping a secret from everyone, including Ashtyn.
Finding Flynn is the first book in the Marlowe series. This new adult romance novel has a great story and it kept me wanting to read, but the beginning and ending had some sexual scenes that were a distraction and a large turn off for me. Bishop could have made this book enjoyable without such graphic pieces in the story. Readers know that New Adult is edgier than Young Adult, but this edginess seemed forced and unnecessary. If readers want (or can get past) these two small sections, then the book itself is well worth the escape it is meant to be.
