Finding Your Heart II was short and sweet in it's own way. Casey has come home to his hometown, and catches up with Paul, his former lover. Some words pass between them, they end up at Paul's hotel where they talk some more and then some sizzling sex takes place. Sounds like a 4 star review for sure, right? Nope. Here's why. I downloaded this and the Finding Your Heart I. Read this one first. Attempted to read the second one. What a cop out. All the author did was change he to she, him to her, cock to cunt..and put out a second book, second version. If this was an experiment by Ms. Valentine, it failed miserably, in this reviewer's opinion. If a book can so easily have the pronouns change, the gender of the main character, then there is nothing special about that character. By doing this with Finding Your Heart, Ms Valentine cheapened what had been a decent read to being nothing but another piece of smut with not rhyme or reason. Ms. Valentine has lost a potential reader in my, unless someone can convince me she's worth taking another look at. I hope she doesn't do this with another book. If so, I can assure you, I'm done. So. Finding Your Heart II, the one I actually finished reading comes in with a ** review. This is down from the intended **** review I had ready until attempting to read Vol. I. Bad move, Ms. Valentine. Bad move.
