Holly’s 4 Star Review

Finding My Way is a contemporary novel about – yep, you guessed it – finding your way. Told from the POV of Emma, Seth and Nick we get to see three different stories that overlap as their paths cross. With plenty of laughs, love, friendship and a huge helping of “WHO WILL SHE CHOOSE???” Megan Kieth has written a story that will capture your attention and leave you needing more.

The first chapter had me hooked straight away. Emma kept zoning out on the world around her – no matter who she was talking to – and day dreaming of sex, sex and more sex. This had me laughing a lot because i myself have a tendancy to go in to my own world, and because Emma just seemed like a real nympho and you wouldn’t typically expect that of her character. Dirty mind aside, she had gone through a break up with her long term boyfriend and she hadn’t yet moved on. she wasn’t really living her life and after she finds out that her ex is now seeing someone, she finally decides that now is the time.

Enter Seth. The gorgeous collegue that has been the center of her naughty thoughts since he started working there 3 months ago. He’s drop dead gorgeous and incredibly sweet. But maybe too sweet for me. I guess i like to have abit of drama but Seth was so . . . safe. He was all about the hearts and flowers and while i do love that, i need abit of excitment. He was so, so caring and especialy to his little sister who suffered nightmares due to her past and my heart competely melted seeing him with her. I really did love Seth as a character but he wasn’t the only guy after Emma . . .

Nick works at the train station that Emma uses to get to work so he sees her almost every day but Emma doesn’t notice him until she finally realises that she needs to get over her ex. Nick is a man whore. Plain and simple. He not only works the booth at the train station but he’s also a DJ at various nightclubs so he’s never short on offers from the ladies, and he never turns them down. I was so torn over NIck because i could tell thaat he had feelings for Emma but he was such a slut!!! I did really like him though. He was funny and underneath it all he had a heart a gold.

I was so undecided pretty much the whole way through the book about who i wanted Emma to be with. Both guys had their good and bad points and i will admit that very briefly i actually wanted her to get back with her ex but shhhh. I would have rated this book higher but for me, it was just too long! After reading for an hour i was only 9% in and was a little put off by the fact that it was 521 pages long. Don’t get me wrong, i love books in legnth but this just seemed to be too long and for a while i struggled with that but once i got past 50% and saw that the end was in sight, i really got back in to it again and enjoyed it.

Emma does date one of the guys in the book (no, i’m not saying who) but by the end, all three have found their way on their own and it is left open for book 2. And guess what?? I finaly decided which guy i love most!! So Megan Kieth, please PICK NICK. I look forward to reading the sequel and i really, really hope that she picks Nick!!
