When you go to Greece to meet your family but end up making out with your smokin’ hot tour guide #sorrynotsorry
Being adopted never made Jane Smith feel unloved, just unlike the rest of her family. As her twenty-fifth birthday approaches, she is struck by an overwhelming longing to finally find her place in the world. So in a very un-Jane-like move, she books a last-minute ticket to Greece to find her birth father and the real Jane. All she knows about him is it that he was a tour guide named Dimitri. Armed with this knowledge and several surprise boxes of condoms from her mom (not embarrassing at all), Jane takes off.
Within minutes of landing she makes two important discoveries. First, everyone in Greece is named Dimitri, and second, fate might be playing a sick joke on her when a sexy tour guide called Dimitri comes to fetch her from the airport. He offers to help Jane with her search—if she’ll go on an adventure with him. Stable Jane would never risk a steamy vacation romance. But real Jane might finally be ready to listen to her heart. Will Jane find her biological father, or will she end up finding something else entirely?
Review: Finding You by Jo Watson is a hilarious romantic comedy. Every woman will enjoy following the main character as her life gets crazier by the minute. This was definitely one interesting read. I didn’t know what to expect. Especially, with Jane’s unexpected moments like having a meltdown and then booking a flight to Greece. Plus, her adoptive mother’s way of raising her is priceless. I couldn’t stop laughing. Readers like myself can easily relate to Jane’s feelings about not fitting in and having a family that makes one feel like an alien at times. Finding You is exactly as the title suggests.
Jo Watson has created a protagonist that I won’t be forgetting any time soon. Jane has it hard growing up within a family that has perfect looks. Whereas she has different skin tone, taller than her siblings, and is referred to as the plain Jane. Her life seems crazy and a bit boring. Like something was missing. Then, out of nowhere she decides to go to Greece. To find her birth father. But the question is will she find him or not?
Then there’s her biological parents. Both loved each other but do to circumstances…they lost one another. A lost love, a mother who gave up her daughter, and a daughter who may or may not find her own love. The emotional journey of a father who died and a mother that should have been there for her daughter was incredible. I cried. I felt hurt. The anger hit me just as hard as it did for Jane. Absolutely, a brilliant story. The plot was well-told. Finding You is a romance journey that readers don’t want to miss. It’s one that I highly recommend to readers worldwide.
