FW_72BOYFRIEND BOOKMARK RATING:★★★★

Sex is all I have ever known.
It started at an early age, and never stopped.
Men, women, threesomes, foursomes, orgies. Fuck it, whatever goes.
Twenty eight years old and nothing to show for my life but a fat bank account, and an impressive porn catalogue; all featuring yours truly; Starburst Bloom.I’m at a crossroads, and I have a choice to make. I choose salvation.
I choose life. I choose myself, for the first time ever.

I will find her. I will find the life I was forced to give up.
I just pray that he stays out of my way.

Finding Willow is for 18+ audiences. There is a mild abuse flashback, which may not be suitable for all readers.

STEPHANIE:★★★★

Star is probably one of the strongest characters I have ever read. But the thing about those strong characters is that she has no idea how strong she really can be.  But before I begin my review, if you have not read, Hers, please stop reading. I am going to give away stuff from that book because that book is the foundation to Finding Willow.
One bad night causes Star’s world to spin off it’s axis, but it is the only thing that is going to give her that final push to be the person she wants to be and to find the only person she wants in her life. Star knows in her life she has only known love from one person in the world, her best friend, Seven. She knows that she will never be more than exactly what she is. The only thing that will make her complete is not money or her job, but her daughter. Seven lived a lifetime of torture because of the same person that her best friend hates with a passion. Seven’s older brother, Blue, has been causing problems for these girls for a very long time. Seven hates him and doesn’t have any idea excactly how much damage he has caused for her dear friend, Star.
But when the secret cannot be kept anymore, Star does the one thing she needs to do. She seeks out her daughter, Willow. Star was forced by her parents to give will up when she was just hours old. But now, no one will stand in her way of finding her daughter.
But this journey takes her back to the one place she really has no desire to be for very long. But once she gets there, things happen, people happen and her life finally begins.
This book was a great follow up to Hers. A beautifully damaged girl just looking the one thing she has been denied all these years. It is learning to accept your past and put it behind you. It is about finding self-worth and value. It is about allowing yourself to love and to be loved. This book was beautiful and disturbing all at the same time. The things Star has live through are just heartbreaking, but finding the one person who can change how she feels about love in the process of searching for her daughter just makes it a fabulous story.
Dawn Robertson did such an amazing job with this book. She showed us terribly flawed people can become more than there pasts and she did it in a very hot and steamy way.  This book was so much more than a romance novel. It really pushed thinking on so many topics that we are not used to thinking of and I appreciated that Dawn went there with this book. It was hard to read some of the events from Star’s past, but Dawn told her story in such a beautiful way. I was taken by this book and didn’t want to put it down. I had to find out if Star finds Willow and if she finds a little true love in the process.
Beautiful story about such a beautifully flawed girl.
Finding Willow is the second book in the Hers series.

Dawn Robertson is a twenty-something indie erotic romance, and mother.  She lives in sunny senior citizen packed Florida, where she wrangles her kids, and Pitbull puppy.
Dawn can normally be found swearing like a sailor, making late night drive-thru appearances, arguing with her kids (or being run over by their power wheels),  reading a steamy romance while hiding in her bathroom, writing her little heart out on her laptop (or dragging her Macbook to the Genius bar praying they can save her latest work in progress), or sipping on a smoothie. She loves to hear from her fans, readers, and authors alike. Feel free to drop her a message.
Dawn rarely takes life seriously, so be sure to expect heavy sarcasm from her. She is also the life of the party, so be sure to meet up with her at one of the many author events she will be attending in the next couple months. Buy her a shot of whiskey, and she will love you for life.
