Sad to say
Truly it pains me to read. I am an absolute fan of Sawyer Bennet. Her first books continue to hold me as a fan as I read them over and over. I'm not sure how this particular book got any such good reviews. This is flat, the storyline and characters fell flat. Not the usual "meat" to her books that make them so Sawyer and so,SO good. It is almost as if she is under pressure to crank out books and you can feel the lack of dedication and lack of her own feeling in this particular book. Come back Sawyer! Cranking out books to make a dollar will not keep fans. Cranking out books that are filled with Sawyer passion, intelligence, worldliness and gift for making relationship angst and passion pour from the pages will keep fans forever. Sadly, this is not an example of Sawyer's best. Truly I struggled to get through it. But I haven't given up on Sawyer. Hopefully she'll be back with more of the Bennet books that keep me engrossed from start to finish.
Absolute must read!
I wish there were enough adjectives to give this book the credit it deserves. I've enjoyed every book I've read from Sawyer Bennett. This one was spot on. I really felt for both Kyle and Jane. I could see both sides. The delivery was executed perfectly. I had a few smack my forehead moments. I shed plenty of tears. And many times I wanted to hate Kyle. I saw and believed his reasons. But still! I ended up loving him even though I wanted to punch him. Jane broke my heart. I'd be honored to have her in my life. She was just the epitome of the perfect woman. I just can't say enough. Except do not hesitate to purchase this wonderful gem.
An ATF Agent immersing himself in a dangerous biker gang to bring them down. He feels that he has lost his humanity and is undeserving of anything good in his life. He goes into hiding until the trials. This is when he meets Jane who kind of forces her way past his guard and into his heart. This book is so good. A sweet love story, a little danger thrown in. Hot sex for sure. A good, good story. This is a standalone book but if you've read other Sawyer stories you may recognize some people. It will make you happy to read this book.

I love Jane! She is a force to be reckoned with! She is an art teacher that works with middle to high school kids plus does her art free-lance on the side. She also tutors art students at her home. She has a love of movies and quotes movie lines and gives their movie title and release year! She puts in these little quips in with the conversation and Kyle just shakes his head at her. She is a riot! Jane is the eternal optimist and she is as tenuous as she is curious. Kyle her reclusive neighbor is a man she wants to figure out and she won’t take no for an answer.
Kyle is very taciturn and keeps to himself. The last thing he wants is to get involved with anyone from this small Maine town. He doesn’t plan on staying here long. He doesn’t encourage her invitations, but that doesn’t stop Jane. She keeps at him. Until he can’t deny their chemistry any longer.
There is so much to this story and I don’t want to give anything away about either Kyle or Jane. They have amazing chemistry and they both can’t deny what’s brewing between them. There is so much in Kyle’s history that he keeps secret and Jane tries to gently pry it out of him. Until it all explodes. My heart just dropped. Kyle and Jane both have a lot to work through. Kyle has to find forgiveness for himself and hopes Jane can forgive him and forgive his past.
I really enjoyed every page and I highly recommend this book!
What a great READ!!
I loved this book.. To see Kyle who seemed dead inside to just come alive when he allows a weird but sweet Jane into his life. Just made me smile. Ms Sawyer you are a Rock Star in my book.. She might write a story about Jane's BFF Miranda. There's a story there..
PS.. I enjoyed the quotes from the old movies.. I do the seem thing. But I don't know the years of the movies.. Lol
Undercover ATF finds his sunshine
Wow! What can I say, except how truly exceptional this novel was! When I first started reading this novel, I didn't realize it was about "KYLE", the Kyle from The Wicked Horse series. The Kyle that I cried over in Wicked Bond. Just WOW!
Kyle is hiding out in a small town when he meets Jane. Jane is sunshine personified! She's always happy, quirky, inquisitive, and can quote movies like nobody's business--except Tony Denozo from NCIS! She's also become somewhat of a stalker of her hunky, sexy, brooding next door neighbor. She can tell that he has secrets, she just doesn't know what they are. So she continues to chop away at the wall Kyle has built.
Kyle, knowing that he'll have to leave in a few months, is not looking for a relationship. Kyle worked deep undercover as a biker in a MC club. He's done heinous acts so he could bring down the club and doesn't think he's worthy of anything so good. So, he's rude and continues to push Jane away--until he can't anymore. He knows he's being selfish as he'll eventually hurt her when he leaves, but he wants this bit of goodness in his life.
When Jane's life is threatened and she's almost killed by a hit man sent to kill Kyle, he knows he has to tell Jane who he really is. Jane is devastated and can't believe Kyle's used her and been so deceitful. He leaves to finish his case and reconnect with his sister. His sister finally convinces him that he is worthy of goodness and happiness. She encourages him to fight for what he wants! Will it be too late?
I highly recommend this novel. It has been my favorite Sawyer Bennett novel to date. I laughed out loud at Jane's quirkiness, cried over Kyle's losses, and got the warm fuzzies at the end. I also appreciated Jane's ability to love so freely and help Kyle find his redemption of sorts. I LOVED it!!! I read a gifted copy and all opinions stated are my own.
I love Kyle!

Finding Kyle is a new standalone by one of my favorite authors, Sawyer Bennett. I have read all of her books and I love them all for different reasons. Finding Kyle is different than some of her other romances. It's not a flowery, lovey dovey story. We met Kyle in the Wicked Horse series and we saw enough of him to know he was into something big and that I had really strong feelings for him. If you haven't read that series, go now. Seriously. Go get it. Anyway, as I was saying…Kyle. He's a tough, tatted up unlikely hero. But deep down he's hurting over what he's done. He was deep undercover in the ATF and now he's hiding out awaiting trial. He wants to keep to himself and just pass the time until he leaves this small, picturesque town of Misty Harbor. The only trouble he's having is with his tenacious neighbor who won't leave him alone. She's hot, sexy and won't take a hint. He knows he should stay away from her since he's leaving and he might be in danger. The last thing he wants to do is put her in danger too. But she continues to show up with food, saying silly things and she gets under his skin. He's fighting his internal demons between the man he was forced to be while undercover and the man he truly is deep down inside. He doesn't believe he deserves to be happy and Jane is the sunniest, happiest thing in the world. Jane is so great! She cracked me up the entire book. Her relentless pursuit of Kyle was epic. I want to be her when I grow up. She's beautiful, funny, talented and sees something more in Kyle. She doesn't want to change him, she wants to know him. Will Kyle try to live in the moment and enjoy being with Jane? Will Jane stop herself from falling in love with Kyle? I loved this story. So much! I loved Kyle before and I'm so grateful to Sawyer for giving him his own story. It needed to be told. Honestly, I need more from Kyle and Jane!
I want to kiss her again, because it's Jane. She's not a woman who I ever want to face away from me.
It should be a sin to look that good, and it should be addressed in the Bible. Or maybe it is, because I'm pretty sure the way I'm coveting my neighbor has probably been written about a time or two.
"Thought I was hot, huh?"
"Oh shut up. You totally know you're hot."
Amazing!! Another incredible story by Sawyer Bennett that will carry you away, holding you mesmerized by her words and the scenes she is so skillfully able to create that you are lost to the real world, and the only thing that matters is reading the next page. I couldn’t get enough, until it was over and all I wanted to do is read it all over again. An emotionally charged and wickedly heated story about finding love and redemption when you least expect it. Watching Kyle and Jane fall in love was mesmerizing and oh so Swoon worthy.
Jane is everything Kyle didn’t want until he could no longer say no to his pesky, obnoxiously quirky, drop dead gorgeous, way to good to be mixed up with the likes of him neighbor. Jane can’t believe her good fortune when she sees her new neighbor. He is sinfully sexy, intriguing, and will make a great summer diversion for her.
Don’t miss this Intoxicating Intense and Deeply Seductive story! Enough heat to melt an iceberg! Do yourself a favor and start this one now! Another winner for Sawyer Bennett! Highly Recommended!
I voluntarily agreed to read an ARC and post a honest review.
This is another in a long line of amazing books from this author. This one gives us a look at a secondary character we've seen in other books, Kyle Sommerville. He's in hiding after completing a grueling three year ATF undercover assignment. His new sexy neighbor, Jane, has no idea what she's walking into when pushes her way into his life and god knows he can't tell her....or resist her.
As expected the writing and character development in this book are outstanding. Jane may very well be my favorite female character ever. The sweet but very sexy story will have you on an emotional roller coaster from the very beginning. Don't miss this one. I highly recommend it.
Another home run!!!
I just love Sawyer Bennett's books, I always know when I pick one up I'm in for a good time. Like all her books, this one is hard to put down and is a very enjoyable read!
Kyle Sommerville (Harding) undercover ATF agent is dark and brooding, from past things he's done feels he doesn't deserve anything good. Jane Cresson is an artist and art teacher at the local schools, she's quirky, cute, light and good everything Kyle is not. He doesn't think he deserves anyone like her, and he's not going to be around long. Kyle tries to resist the quirky artist/art teacher, but even he isn't that strong.
Kyle has small parts in other books Sawyer Bennett has written, most recently in Wicked Bond, and before that in Shaken Not Stirred. I was really glad to see him get his HEA. That's another thing I enjoy about the author's books is you frequently see previous couples reappearing, so you get those little snippets of how they are doing (you don't see any in this book, but you do in most of her books). While there are some dark themes suggested, they don't go into any detail for those that are squeamish about anything like that. I really enjoyed this book, and can't wait for her next book! Another homerun by Sawyer Bennett!!
