Review: Finding Juniper (Juniper Series #3)

So, back in 2016 I was in a book rut of epic proportions… everything I picked up I either couldn’t finished. Or they just let me blah… I was disillusioned with romance because a lot of authors were following the safe trend… I craved something different.
So I picked up a little book (ha if you’ve seen the print version you’d giggle at me calling it a little book… it’s a sweeping 700 page saga steeped in relatable characters and originality…) and since I have been eagerly anticipating the conclusion to Kyle and Juniper’s story.
You know what they say…. good things come to those who wait. Yes, we have had to wait almost 2 years for Finding Juniper. I know this irritated some people. Here’s what I have to say about that. You can’t rush perfection and patience pays off.
From the very first page we are brought right back into Kyle’s clockwork mind… yes, he’s not your typical orthodox romance book hero… to those of us who have read and loved Kyle’s character from the beginning you have to appreciate returning to his thought process. But there’s some changes in Finding Juniper. After the events of the second novel in the series his mind is whirling like a maelstrom. While he’s constantly telling himself that everything is the same… that he’s got this covered. That’s the thing about love… and letting someone under your skin. And this is played up in the first few pages of the novel in brilliant detail.
The first meeting of Kyle and Juniper went over like a ton of bricks haha for her especially and I loved the juxtaposition between their characters at this point. We see how things have changed but how they can’t deny the chemistry and magnetic pull they both feel.
And thus begins a unforgettable read. I won’t go into tons of specifics here but let me tell you the bouquet of locations and emotions and detail creates an exquisitely decadent story.
One of my favorite things about this author’s writing style is the level of detail she gives to not just the big cinematic moments, but to those small quiet moments as well. It all cumulates in to this spectacular ending that leaves the reader breathless and wanting more. I know when I read Juniper Smoke that it easily blew past the competition to claim the top spot on my Best Reads of the Year list and with Finding Juniper it leaps ahead of all the other books I have read this year to take its rightful place on the throne.
Tell your friends who aren’t typically “romance readers” let them know that this saga is so much more.
