My Review

You know looking at the cover of this book, I totally did not know what to expect. Funny, quirky, cussing ass characters?...definitely not!

Finding Us give us the story of Ella Daniels and Ian Nelson who have been fucking...*clears throat* I mean sleeping together for the past two years. They work together, can't really stand one another (not true) or so it seems. These two deciding that when they first started fucking...sorry, sleeping together, it would be no strings attached. Oh funny, how things start to change when folks start catching feelings.

When we go into this tale, Ella has decided that she must get her shit together and sleeping with Ian has to stop. Ian is use to temporary relationships but when Ella tells him that he basically has to get his shit and get out of her apartment, he is pissed and doesn't understand why. It's what he was expecting right? maybe not.

Ella has some fairy tale thoughts of how she thinks a man should be (daddy treated her like a princess issues) and Ian doesn't fit that mold and it's not like dude was a bad person. Ella made him into one because she couldn't deal with her own insecurities. To her Ian was a asshole, but he really wasn't.

Ian grew up with a mother who wasn't very much of one. He fought his way to the top in Hollywood becoming a well known and famous producer. Years of therapy has prepared him for rejection or did it? Ella breaking off their two year affair should have been okay...fine. So why is he so damn mad? Ian had is own issues, his mom pretty much fucked up his perspective early and as much as he hated to admit it, the man wanted to be loved (classic mommy issues).

The lines between these two especially Ella had be cracking up in my room. They were friggin hysterical.

"Ella's hand curled around the spatula she was holding. He'd eat it all, too. That's what really pissed her off. It was a shit of a omelet, like every shit omelet she'd ever made, but the big-headed bastard would eat it all." Ella

"If I make the the bed, you're just going to complain I didn't do it right. Which means I'll deny it. Which will only result in a fight and that's just a waste of time." She opened her mouth to complain more, but was stopped by him waving his fork at her. "You're making the bed means I get to finish my pie, which will give me more energy to go down on you longer." Ian

I don't think I laughed so hard while reading a book in a long while so thank you Ms. Eckford for that. Ian and Ella were good and bad for each other which in turn made them perfect for each other. I loved the realness of their "relationship"...how they argued back and forth and then would be texting each other about things. Finding Us is the perfect title for this story. Because these two? They needed to find themselves and maybe a little bit of jeezus too, lols.

Looking for a short, funny story with totally off the wall characters..you got it in Finding Us. Also, even though this is the fourth book in the series, I wasn't lost as each book deals with a new couple. I'm seriously going to have to go back and read the rest of the books.
