Mollie Malone's mom skipped out on her. Her biker dad, always loose and easy with the law, still was able to make her feel loved, and to keep her safe. But thirteen years ago, when his luck finally ran out and he landed in prison, Mollie found herself a new family - a group of friends in the sleepy little college town of Cavanagh, Tennessee, where now they all attend the local university. These girls know about the rotten roots of her family tree but accept her anyway, and the bond between them is so strong and supportive that Mollie is finally able to see past graduation to a future that is bright and secure.
But sometimes the past doesn't stay buried.
Suddenly, inexplicably, there's a shadow behind every step Mollie takes. Someone is lurking in that shadow, threatening not only Mollie, but also the new family she has claimed for herself.
And it isn’t just the past that has Mollie’s life in upheaval. Hunky former Marine Vaughn Winchester - who Mollie really would like to get to know much better - thinks Mollie is just a kid; he's made it clear she wouldn't ever be able to understand the demons haunting him. But if that's what he believes, then why does he keep sticking his nose in her business? And if he thinks she’s such a kid, why does he keep trying to kiss her?
Vaughn’s mind games are frustrating, especially since Mollie knows enough about secrets to be convinced that there's something he isn’t telling her, something he's so far been able to keep hidden. But when that secret is revealed, Mollie is forced into a situation that tests her loyalty and threatens even her closest friendships - just when the shadow of her past returns, and she's going to need them the most.
'Finding Serenity' is book two in the Seeking Serenity series.
(*I received a ARC for this tour. I'm not a paid reviewer and all thoughts expressed are my own*)
Wow.. just wow I thought it couldn't get any better than Eden's first book in the series Chasing Serenity but boy was I mistaken. I loved Chasing Serenity very much ..I mean really come on who can't help love a Irish rugby player.. so hot ( still is) but man Marines never sounded so hot until Finding Serenity..
Finding Serenity is told in third person as we follow the two main characters; Mollie and Vaughn. In Chasing Serenity you are introduced to Mollie and Vaughn a little but it of course didn't do any justice to their character until they got their own book. It was just fantastic! The story line was captivating and kept me turning page after page. I couldn't set it down! Mollie wasn't one of those annoying main girls you want to strangle. She is a strong and is able to hold her ground. She has a few friends who we all so saw in Chasing Serenity but one friend in particular I can't wait for her story..Layla. She is a riot and I could only imagine her story is going to be epic!
"Glittering, rugby-playing Edward Cullen clone."
-Layla Finding Serenity
Now of course Vaughn is freaking sexy as heck.. I loved his character instantly. He may have felt he was broken and a failure but he didnt let that stop him from trying his best to protect Mollie. At times he seemed like he would give up and not try anymore but in the end chose to go after what he truly wanted.
"I...I can't think when you touch me."
-Vaughn Finding Serenity
But it wasn't like Mollie didn't go after what she really wanted either because she did..
"I saw you that day on the Dash and knew you were mine."
-Mollie Finding Serenity
All in all Eden Butler's Finding Serenity was absolutely stupendous! So Far Mollie and Vaughn's story is my favorite in this series but they are all worth the read.. I can't wait for more..hopefully soon :D I would recommend this read for sure!
