Losing Me, Finding You 18+

The following review is for 18+ readers.

Losing Me, Finding You
3 of 5 stars false
Twenty-one year old Amy Cross's idea of a hot Saturday night is curling up with her favorite book boyfriend and secretly sneaking a bottle of her mother's wine. That is, until she meets Austin Sparks, the biker boy with a past that burns like fire and a gaze she can't look away from. Without knowing what she's doing or why she's doing it, Amy ends up on the road with Austin traveling from one city to another while learning things she's only ever read about in romance novels.
At first it seems like Austin is Amy's fantasy come true, but as their journey progresses, she starts to sense that Austin is running away from something. Amy knows that she'll do whatever it takes to help him find himself. What she doesn't expect is that she'll lose herself in the process and how good it will feel to be free


Amy is not living the life that she wants to live. Stuck in the middle of a god fearing town, with a mean, free with his fists preacher father and a brain washed mother, Amy pretends to be the good girl. Every year when the Biker fair happens in there town, she dreams of riding away and never looking back. Truth is , she is a 21 year old virgin who has never even been kissed,and who lives off the fantasies she has of her list of book boyfriends.
This years Biker Fair brings with it Austin Sparks, devilishly handsome, dirty mouthed, bad boy biker... and they strike up a surprising connection.
Losing Me, Finding you, really got me excited. The cover, totally hot, I mean who could resist that?
The actual story seemed somewhat lacking. It wasn't until the actual end of the book that I felt any sort of connection between the characters except for the sexual one. There was lots of sex in this book, but for me, it was really fast and not sexy at all. The story as a whole , characters and all, felt like it needed a bit more depth, background and just general fleshing out. With a bit more information this book could have been fantastic. We had tidbits of information of characters back stories, Austin's brother for example, but not enough for me to be emotionally involved, which I like to be when reading a book.
My disappointment may have something to do with the fact that I have come to expect a lot from my steamy hot biker books, but I don't think so. This one had all the potential, but just didn't quite get there in my mind. I was a good, but not great.
