When you go to Greece to meet your family but end up making out with your smokin' hot tour guide #sorrynotsorry
Being adopted never made Jane Smith feel unloved, just unlike the rest of her family. As her twenty-fifth birthday approaches, she is struck by an overwhelming longing to finally find her place in the world. So in a very un-Jane-like move, she books a last-minute ticket to Greece to find her birth father and the real Jane.
All she knows about him is it that he was a tour guide named Dimitri. Armed with this knowledge and several surprise boxes of condoms from her mom (not embarrassing at all), Jane takes off.
Within minutes of landing she makes two important discoveries. First, everyone in Greece is named Dimitri, and second, fate might be playing a sick joke on her when a sexy tour guide called Dimitri comes to fetch her from the airport. He offers to help Jane with her search---if
she'll go on an adventure with him. Stable Jane would never risk a steamy vacation romance. But real Jane might finally be ready to listen to her heart. Will Jane find her biological father, or will she end up finding something else entirely?
"Top Pick! Almost a Bride put a smile on my face more than once. The dialogue was witty, the words were well-written and the heroine was one-of-a-kind." ---Harlequin Junkie
Finding You by Jo Watson is the third book in the Destination Love series. I have not read any of the previous novels in this series, but Finding You was so much fun that now I want to. Each of the novels in the Destination Love series can be read as total standalones. I don’t even think there is any character overlap, which is nice because they are true standalones that way. Finding You is the story of Jane, who goes to Greece in search of her birth father.
Jane basically has a name and an occupation, and nothing else to go on. She even picks the part of Greece randomly and sets off. Which is crazy, in my opinion and totally unlike the character of the Jane I got to know. (Which she readily admits is true.) Jane was a hoot and a half. I loved her and all of her quirks! She is a successful dentist and she knows trivia about all sorts of topics, and she can’t seem to help but spout her fun facts wherever she goes. I am with Dimitri, I think she is adorable.
And let’s talk about Dimitri for a minute. I mean is he not the epitome of a vacation fantasy. I mean part of what makes Finding You so fun is that it is like finding a prince charming. Jane goes off to Greece and finds a tall dark and handsome Greek model/tour guide/all around great guy. How good can it get? Jane has all the luck in this story. But she makes the story charming and hilarious because she is a little bit of a hot mess. The comedy aspect of Finding You is what made me love this story so much. The Greek setting was perfect for the romance in Finding You but the characters are what won me over. Dimitri is such a great guy. I loved how attentive and awesome he was with Jane, and Jane is my girl. I just loved her.
Bottom line: If you are looking to be swept away in a beautiful Greek romance with tons of humorous encounters and scenes along the way, you need to check out Finding You by Jo Watson. I really enjoyed this novel.Come find romance in Greece in this fun #RomanticComedy! @Bookbriefs #reviews Finding You by @Jowatsonwrites @ForeverRomance Click To Tweet
