Found by Claudia Y. Burgoa


All I’ve ever wanted was for someone to choose me. My mother didn’t. My father didn’t. The beautiful boy next door, who grew up to marry me, didn’t. Neither did the next man with whom I thought my heart was safe.

Back in the Bay area, three thousand miles from New York City, I can start fresh. Become one with the sea again, rise or fall on the tide of my own choices. But on the first day of my bright new life, the darkest shadows of my past follow me through my office door. The two men whose names are definitely not on my five-year plan.

If I let it consume me—my need for one man, my love for the other—the darkness will swallow me whole. I can’t let that happen. Not again. This time, the waves of emotion crashing against my heart won’t drown me. This time, I get to choose my happy ending.

Love triangle, love triangle, love triangle.  

Love triangles always make me as uncomfortable as I love devouring them.  Is it more uncomfortable with lies and cheating or is it more uncomfortable is so blatantly honest with "Hey, I love you, but I may love this person more so I need to figure it out."

Ouch, ouch, ouch either way.  God, I love it.

Either way.  We ride the ride with Hazel figuring it all out. Her past. Her present.  Her future.  Shit. Maybe she picks neither of them.

We finally get the story of Scott and Hazel and... Hazel's first-love.  Will he be her last too or will it be Scott?

Found is so much more than your basic love triangle.  Claudia dissects these characters and delves into what makes Hazel, Hazel and Scott, Scott.  

While my heart will always belong to Harrison Everhart and his story is my favorite, I can't disagree that this was a beautifully written and told story.  Don't get me wrong, this isn't all angst, drama, and heartbreak deciding between men.  We ARE talking about the Everhart brothers, which means a solid dose of humor.
