5 Star Review---Finding Us by Megan Smith



Jasmine Jennings is running from her past, something she never wants to deal with again. Starting out fresh in a new city, life is finally looking up.

That is until she meets him — Knox Mitchell. She tries to elude him, but he’s everywhere. When she finally gives in, he begins to avoid her.

One tragic night, Knox’s future was ripped away. His body and soul crave revenge from the man who took everything away from him, but when Jasmine crashes into Knox’s muddled life, he’s torn. What is he supposed to do about falling for the girl who was to be part of his plan for retaliation?

When all secrets are revealed can they move forward without the past destroying any hopes of having a future?


When I first started reading Finding Us, I didn't know what to expect.  I couldn't figure out what was going on with Knox and why he was SO ANGRY! Jasmine had the life that most people would love, minus the parents who only loved themselves.  Jasmine lived life to the fullest and made her way out of the hellish life that she had to live once she graduated college. Jasmine left her life and started a great life in New York with her best friend and in come Knox.

Knox is a businessman who faced a lot of difficult things in life. His life was hard because of loss but also a little fulfilled with the friendships that were more like family. Knox is a strong man who always gets the things he wants. He has a lot of demons that makes him who he is and at first you fall in love with him and then you hate him and then you love him even more. That is how I felt throughout the book.  I loved all of the characters and when I met a character at the end of the book, my love for Jasmine and Knox grew even more.

I am recommending Finding Us to all readers and I will follow all of the books that will follow.  Kudos to Megan Smith!!!!!

Later that night Knox takes me to bed. He helps me rid myself of clothes and I do the same to him. We climb into his bed and lie facing each other. Knox pulls me closer to him and puts my arms around his neck. I cradle him to my chest, content in this moment.

“I’m falling hard, Jas.” Knox says with so much emotion in his voice it makes me want to be a girly girl and cry.

My heartbeat picks up. I run my hand through his hair, comforting him. “Me too.”

“I’m still trying to find my way out of this nightmare I’ve been living in.” Knox sighs deeply.

“I’m still trying to find my way in life.” I place a finger under Knox’s chin and tilt his head up. What I see in his eyes is like a mirror of my own. “We’re both lost. We’re trying to find our way and we’re working on finding us.”

Knox’s breath hitches before he crashes his mouth to mine. “We’re finding us.”

I bite down on my bottom lip and Knox reaches up and releases it with his thumb before he kisses it. Something in this moment changes between us. We both admitted that we are finding us, finding our way to be with each other. This road is going to be bumpy as hell but it will be worth all the damage once we get to the other side. I hope.
