✱✱Book Review✱✱ Finally Found You by Claudia Burgoa

 


From USA Today bestselling author Claudia Burgoa comes, a new secret baby forbidden love romance, featuring a broody billionaire and a much younger sassy heroine he never saw coming.

Being the single guardian for my fifteen-year-old cousin isn’t as easy as you’d think, especially when she runs away to find the dad, who has no idea she exists.

Lysander Spearman is broody, protective, and not at all who I should be falling for.

We’re nothing alike.

He’s got money in the bank, and I’m trying to make ends meet.

He’s much too old for me, and I hate his guts.

He’s quiet, and I can’t keep my mouth shut.

But when he shows up for his daughter.

When I see him care.

When he takes charge—I can’t stop my heart from flipping.

He’s offering me security that I’ve never dared to dream about.

When his lips touch mine, I know I’m done for.

I just hope he doesn’t break our hearts.

This is a highly emotional book that will take you on a rollercoaster ride of forbidden love, family drama, and the power of true love.



Momma Says: 5 stars⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐

I've been waiting for Lysander's story since the beginning, and it was definitely worth the wait. There have been hints all along about family secrets, so it's only fitting that the family secret keeper should be the one to find out about a secret that's been kept from him - for 15 years! Leave it to Claudia Burgoa to take the secret baby trope to the next level. Lysander also gets the age gap trope, which is one of my favorites. He and Camilla have such good chemistry and the kind of magnetic pull that is much stronger than either of them expected. On top of the chemistry for a couple you just can't help but root for, there are those earlier-mentioned secrets - secrets that some of us have been waiting for answers to since the beginning of the series. If you aren't caught up on the series, don't worry. Each book can be read as a standalone, and we're given enough information to understand what's going on with those questions I mentioned. That said, I strongly suggest reading from the beginning because this family and Paradise Bay will quickly get under your skin and into your heart, and you won't want to miss a single minute. But then, that's just the Claudia Burgoa way and one of the reasons she's in my top ten must-read list of authors.



Momma Says: 5 stars⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐

As if Lysander and Camilla weren't already a terrific couple in a series of terrific couples, we get Joe Arden and Stephanie Nemeth-Parker to bring them off the page and into our ears. I've had the pleasure of listening to both narrators several times, and they always give top-notch performances. In my opinion, you can't go wrong with any part of this one - author, story, characters, narrators, it all comes together for a must-read book (or must-listen, as the case may be).
