A New Adult novel
Star Rating: 4 out of 5
Heat Rating: SPICY!
If The Goonies, Romancing the Stone and National Treasure could be made into a New Adult novel, it would be called Search Me. Reading Search Me was a fun-filled adventure ride with a side of steamy romance! It was a fast-paced read that left you craving more after every page.
Maddox and Lane have had a bumpy relationship of ups and downs, until one night they take it too far and everything changes. Maddox and Lane are reunited three years later working together all summer for Maudie, when once again their lives are turned upside down and they are forced to work together to uncover mysteries, decode clues, look for lost treasure and discover buried secrets.
I really enjoyed this story! I don't think Katie Ashley can write a dull book, I have loved them ALL (so I might be biased), but this one is becoming a fast favorite. If you read the blog you know I am sucker for friends to lovers story lines and this is a GREAT one with the added bonus of action, suspense, hidden treasure and steamy fun. Maddox and Lane were great characters, they were forced together by crazy circumstances and once they let down their walls and let go of the past they were able to see what they really meant to each other.
There was so much great stuff going on in this book! The dialogue was witty, emotional and honest; you fall in love with the characters early on and are rooting for them the entire story. I hesitate to say more (can't ruin the fun for you all) but this was a story that will make your Goonies lovin' heart sing! The pacing and writing were spot on and it was really hard to put down.
If you love a good romance you will know you are in for a treat with Katie Ashley, but if you have been wanting something different in your New Adult reading, Search Me is the perfect answer! Grab this book, get comfy and enjoy :)
