Finding Us by @HarperBentley

: Finding Us :
Jag Jensen and Ellen Love had been best friends their whole lives until he turned thirteen and started noticing girls his own age, but that didn’t mean he stopped watching out for eleven-year-old Ellen. By his senior year in high school, baseball had taken the front seat in his life, with a scholarship to college and a pro career looming on the horizon, when sophomore Ellen caught his attention and they struck up their friendship again. Although Ellen wanted more, Jag didn’t want to drag her into what he knew would be a crazy life, but love has a way of deciding one’s future, and eventually they became a couple. Ellen followed him to California as he began his pro career, but his wild and hectic lifestyle screwed everything up. 

Now Jag is lost, realizing he’s never been without his best friend in his life. Learning to live without Ellen doesn’t settle well with him, so while trying to remain at the top of his career, he also wants to get his girl back, which proves to be more difficult than he thought it’d be. Will Ellen give him another chance or does that sort of thing only happen in the sappy romance novels she always used to read? Jag hopes she’s willing to try again as he puts his heart on the line for the woman he knows will always be his forever and a day.

Jag, Jag, Jag! One of the best things about this book was its POV. Jag is the narrator, though sometimes hearing his thoughts makes me shake my head (he is a guy) i liked the idea of a male POV. Jag and Ellen have known each other their whole lives before they take on a dating relationship. Jag is trying to handle a new pro career and Ellen at the same time….no surprise he fails miserable. Not your cliche book of love and lost and i was definitely intrigued on what off the wall idea Jag would come up with next. 
I didn't read book one so i only have Jag's side of the story so i recommend reading book one Discovering Us eventually. Be warned, this book leaves you on the worst kind of cliff hanger, you know the one your reading a high emotional scene and it says…you are the weakest link GoodBye! 
I want to know what happens. Overall, well written though Jag reminds me how stupid some of the things guys think of are (unfortunately realistic). I recommend reading book one either before or after reading Finding Us. 
Ill say give the books a read

I give Finding Us by Harper Bentley
