Jag Jensen and Ellen Love had been best friends their whole lives until he turned thirteen and started noticing girls his own age, but that didn't mean he stopped watching out for eleven-year-old Ellen. By his senior year in high school, baseball had taken the front seat in his life, with a scholarship to college and a pro career looming on the horizon, when sophomore Ellen caught his attention and they struck up their friendship again. Although Ellen wanted more, Jag didn't want to drag her into what he knew would be a crazy life, but love has a way of deciding one's future, and eventually they became a couple. Ellen followed him to California as he began his pro career, but his wild and hectic lifestyle screwed everything up.

Now Jag is lost, realizing he's never been without his best friend in his life. Learning to live without Ellen doesn't settle well with him, so while trying to remain at the top of his career, he also wants to get his girl back, which proves to be more difficult than he thought it'd be. Will Ellen give him another chance or does that sort of thing only happen in the sappy romance novels she always used to read? Jag hopes she's willing to try again as he puts his heart on the line for the woman he knows will always be his forever and a day.

This is the second book of the True Love Trilogy.

Due to language and sexual content, this book is not recommended for readers under age 17.

I LOVED this book as much as the first. Jag and El just can't seem to get it together and the tension it unnerving. I highly recommend this book to everyone.

The first piece of good news I noticed once I started reading is Finding Us is in Jag’s point of view. You know how I love a good male point of view and Jag does not disappoint. Jag’s thoughts are hilarious if the man himself is more stupid than a box of rocks. Such a male. I have this love-hate relationship with Jag. He’s freaking amazing and I loved being in his head. By 2% into the story he had me ready to cry because it was just so touching. I thought “finally, finally the man gets it”. Yet, as time goes on I started to realize that while Jag said he “got it” he didn’t really “get it!” if that makes sense. Jag spends Finding Us continuing to make stupid mistakes. He’s just such a moron, in that way that I think most men are. They just don’t look at the big picture of things, plus he’s new to the famous life and all the perils that come with it. Although, even with his stupidity I just felt for Jag. I wanted him to get his stuff together. I was just so mad at him at times I wanted to scream, but he’s still the sweetest dude ever and he really is trying. He just doesn’t “get it”. We get to see Ellen from Jag’s eyes in this book and I think it made me love her just a little bit more. Of course I’m completely on the sister’s side, I understood why she does what she does. Ellen and I “got it” now someone just needs to make Jag see it. Can you tell this book sucked me in? I was a big emotional mess. I don’t know what it is exactly about this story, but it just engulfs me. It would have been a solid five stars for me, but I found the beginning a little slow. There is a lot of Jag saying he did this, days pass, then he did this etc. But let me tell you once we get to the good stuff I couldn’t put this book down. I have to find out how things are going to end for this couple. Once I hit the end of Finding Us we of course get one of Harper Bentley’s killer cliffhangers, but I knew it was coming so I was prepared with book three, Finally Us. Will Jag finally figure it out? Will Ellen take him back? How will these two get there? Needless to say, thank God I already had the third book, waiting to start was the right choice because I would not have been able to handle the suspense if I hadn’t.

Rating: 4.5 Stars Finally Jag’s POV! One thing is for sure though: MAKE UP SEX IS REALLY HOT! I had wanted to get inside Jag’s brain the moment he renewed their friendship after five years. This guy had been nothing but amazing – a little gullible, and sometimes clueless, but amazing nonetheless. You know why? Because despite all those sexy, and beautiful model surrounding him – he was able to keep his d**k on his pants. Great, huh? He waited all these time for Ellen, why waste her trust? After putting down the first book, I immediately opened the second book. Trust me, you needed to read the first one, although this book offered Jag’s version of their story. The ending made me stop breathing – was it really happening? Were they saying, what I thought they were saying? Oh yes, they are. California, girls, practices, and insecurities apparently don’t mix. Ellen might have been constantly being reassured by Jag – but hey, this girl is just human. She is bound to experience insecurities no matter how unfounded they may be. Jag was a guy, he’s got some underwear model running after him, and Ellen thought she was just a normal-looking human being. So, I really didn’t have the heart to hate her. Although, there was a point where I wished, she would just have to think soooo hard before making any decisions or rush to any conclusions. Here’s Jag with his heart broken, trying his best to woo Ellen with the help of his friends: Russ, Amanda and Baxter. But a truck-full of Irises wouldn’t just buy you a forgiveness, a lot of semi-stalking, and groveling would PROBABLY do the trick. He tries to juggle it all – wooing the girl of his dreams, and his career. And just when everything gets to be perfect again, a deranged underwear model came into the scene once again just to ruin it all. Gaaahd, I wished Jag would have put this girl in her proper place. I’d smack her, maybe shove some senses up to her a**. Being a gentleman sure didn’t help him – because he was losing Ellen all over again – will this be for real, this time? Once again, I certainly can’t find my breathe as I await for the last installment in this trilogy! But I certainly hope Ellen and Jag will both get their HEA. There is no better lover, boyfriend or husband than your best friend. They have been through hell and back, they have been together for ages, so I’m crossing my fingers, pinning for this two as I patiently wait for the next book.  ¿ARC Copy was given in exchange for an honest review.¿

Great read. Enjoyed their love story. I want to punch El in the throat for her insecurities. I seriously hate cliffhangers. I wish I had paid more attention to when this book was released. I would have waited for the next book before reading. There is no telling how long I'll have to wait for the third book to come out. Overall it was a good quick read. I finished it within a two hours. 151 pages.
