Finding My Way Blog Tour: Book Review + Giveaway

Welcome to my stop on the Finding My Way Blog Tour hosted by InkSlinger PR. I'm thrilled to be a part of this tour because I am a huge fan and I absolutely h e a r t this series to outer space and back! So, any chance I get to shout at the top of my lungs how awesome Heidi McLaughlin and the Beaumont series are, I'm taking it!

For today's stop, I've got my thoughts and feels to share with all of you, as well as the tour wide giveaway so do not go anywhere because there's a lot of epic going on, for sure! Without anymore delay...

About the book:

Title: Finding My Way (Beaumont, #4)
Author: Heidi McLaughlin
Publisher: Self
Release date: April 14, 2014
Age group: New Adult
Genre: Contemporary Romance

Liam Westbury has the world at his feet. He’s the quintessential golden boy. He’s the superstar quarterback for Beaumont High. His girl, Josie, is head cheerleader. He has his choice of colleges just waiting for him. Except he’s suffocating from all the pressure he’s under and no one understands.

Liam Page is the heartthrob he never wanted to be. He’s successful, smart and in demand by record companies and his adoring fans. Music is his passion, his love, but something’s missing. His nights are lonely and he longs for the girl he left behind. Seeing her in every face in the crowd haunts him with the knowledge that she hates him. Going home has never been an option until now.

Be there when Liam Westbury becomes Liam Page and follow the highs and lows of the Quarterback turned Rockstar as he finds a way back to Beaumont in this prequel to Forever My Girl.

My thoughts and feels:

Heidi McLaughlin’s Beaumont series has always been a huge favorite of mine. All the books in the series have blown me away and each time, I couldn’t stop wanting more and more. The same thing happened with Finding My Way; I would love a prequel story for Harrison and JD. McLaughlin’s storytelling and her way with words never cease to amaze me. It’s mad genius and every time after I finish one of her books, I’m left in a daze, just reveling in her awesomeness.

Finding My Way sheds a whole new light on Liam. Right after I finished FMW, I opened up Forever My Girl (to refresh my mind a bit) and it was like seeing everything with a whole new pair of eyes. In FMW, you really come to understand Liam. His life, his parents, his friends, Josie, football... you grasp what they all mean to him. For the first half of the book, I felt for him so hard. Numerous times, I wanted him to just say what he wanted to say or to just do what he wanted to do, yet I knew why it was hard for him. I understood the pressure he was under from his dad, the absence of his mother, the pressure of being the town’s golden boy, the pressure of not letting Mason down, the pressure of being the perfect boyfriend to Josie. I felt the weight on his shoulders like a shit-ton of bricks that wanted to pound him into the ground.

Damn, I used to love this view
Sit here and drink a few
Main street and the high school lit up on Friday night
Down there it's another touchdown
Man, this year's team is stout
I can hear them goin' crazy
And up here so am I
Thinkin' about you sittin' there sayin' I hate this, I hate it
If you couldn't stand livin' here why'd you take it, take it

Give me back my hometown
'Cause this is my hometown

All the colors of my youth
The red, the green, the hope, the truth
Are beatin' me black and blue cause you're in every scene
My friends try to cheer me up get together at the Pizza Hut
I didn't have the heart to tell them that was our place
These sleepy streetlights on every sidewalk side street
Shed a light on everything that used to be

Give me back my hometown
'Cause this is my hometown
Yeah, yeah, ooohh, yeah, yeah

You can have my grandma's locket
The knife out of my grandpa's pocket
Yeah my state champion jacket
I don't care you can have it
Every made memory
Every picture, every broken dream
Yeah everything, everything, everything

Give me back my hometown
'Cause this is my hometown
Yeah, yeah, ooohh, yeah, yeah
