Pressing Pause
In a random moment of clarity, after a very trying week, and only 5 hours of sleep last night, I remembered something. I have not said a proper "Thank You" to the people who have helped me and supported me in my blogger aspirations.  You have all given me the love an support of an army, and for that I am so incredibly grateful. This hardly seems like enough, it is but a small start...

Found in You
(Book 2 - Fixed Trilogy)
Warning: This book contains mature content and is not recommended for readers under 17.
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...
My Review
 I have huge love for this series. It will always hold a very special place in my heart, as it was my very first ARC. This being said, I didn't think it was possible for the second book to be better then the first, I was wrong. This second book surpassed my expectations.
 I fell in love with Hudson and Alayna in Fixed on You, and my love grew as I started devouring Found in You. Hudson and Alyana have their issues, both apart and together, instead of giving up and giving in, they surge forward. This does not mean that the journey is easy. The path they choose, is the more difficult of the two. Fight for each other, trust in the unknown and unforeseeable. Hudson still believes on some levels that he is unworthy of love. Alayna is unsure of her capability to stay on her own path. Maintaining her own identity and not going off the rails, so to speak.
Outside forces are doing their very best to tear these two apart. Secrets held by many threaten all the progress Hudson and Alayna have made as a couple. Both Hudson and Alayna struggle, but as their love deepens for each other,  they become unbreakable.
In the first book of this trilogy, secrets are eluded to, in this second installment, some are revealed. The reader is left wondering what could possibly happen in the next book? When all is revealed, how it will end?
Found in You has perfect amounts of sex, emotion, drama and intrigue. The writing is beautiful and realistic. This author has a talent for grabbing you from chapter one, and not letting you go.

I am beyond excited for the final book, Forever with You, which is tentatively scheduled for release January 2014.

Fixed on You 
 USA TODAY Bestselling Author 
 Laurelin Paige
Book 1 - The Fixed Trilogy 
Stalking and restraining orders are a thing of Alayna Wither’s past. With her MBA newly in hand, she has her future figured out—move up at the nightclub she works at and stay away from any guy who might trigger her obsessive love disorder. A perfect plan.

But what Alayna didn’t figure on is Hudson Pierce, the new owner of the nightclub. He’s smart, rich, and gorgeous—the kind of guy Alayna knows to stay away from if she wants to keep her past tendencies in check. Except, Hudson’s fixed his sights on her. He wants her in his bed and makes no secret of it.

Avoiding him isn’t an option after he offers a business proposition she can’t turn down and she’s drawn further into his universe, unable to resist his gravitational pull. When she learns Hudson has a dark history of his own, she realizes too late that she’s fallen for the worst man she could possibly get involved with. Or maybe their less than ideal pasts give them an opportunity to heal each other and finally find the love their lives have been missing.

This book became one of my very favorite reads of 2013, when I read it originally back in July, shortly after it's release. It's the reason I chose to feature this book and author first on my blog! Hard Love For Laurelin Paige, FanGirling!!!
My Review
Warning! This book is HOT!! Get a fan kind of HOTTT!!!!
I loved this book from start to finish Alayna has a troubled past, not a typical one though, she gets too attached. Hudson doesn't get attached at all, he isn't capable of love, or so he thinks...a proposal made, accepted, simple right?? Not so much, things get complicated pretty quick, when feelings get involved. Hudson's mother, is EVIL to her core. Hudson's father, sweet, and a bit of comedic relief. Hudson's sister, is so incredibly adorable and nice. Alayna's brother, selfish, and a bit cruel! The whole cast in this novel is intriguing. The writing is great, the romance, incredibly sexy!! Hudson is caring, domineering, possessive, "sex on a stick". Alayna is determined, feisty and extremely intelligent.The unexpected brilliance of this book came out of nowhere for me, but it had me riveted from page one, I couldn't put it down, literally. If you like contemporary romance with a lot of heat, heart, drama, tension, this is the book for you! I am eager to read the next book, Found in You as I can't wait to see where the author takes us next! What an absolutely brilliant debut. This author has a new fan, and I am willing to bet many, more will follow!

What FanGirl Book Blog Is All About
For my very first blog post I was told it would be a good idea to talk about what I aspire to be as a blogger and what I want my blog to be. I have always been an avid reader, but about a year and a half ago, my reading hobby, became my obsession. I discovered e-readers. I know that I was late to the party, but better late then never right? I am in an area, where there is not one proper bookstore. At the same time FSOG was exploding, and I discovered a new love for romance. I had long since drifted from the genre, having read myself sick as a teenager. With that one read I re-discovered my love for love stories and most importantly happily ever afters.
One thing you will never see here is negative comments or reviews. If I do not personally enjoy a book, you will not see a review here. I am seriously against bullying. I believe that the reason why we book blog is to share our love of reading and our love for their creators, authors. If I am asked to read a book, and do not enjoy it, I will express my concerns and constructive criticism with the author.
I'm a FanGirl first and foremost and will remain that way. If you love to read romance, then you may find some books here you enjoy.
Thanks so much for stopping by my little blog. Please be gentle with me, as I am still learning.
