FINDING MY WAY (BEAUMONT 4) by HEIDI McLAUGHLIN
I looooooove this series and though I am not much of a fan of Liam Page, I truly love how Heidi McLaughlin wrote everything from book 1. Finding My Way is Liam Page’s side of the story, a prequel to Forever My Girl. Told in his POV, we get to live the life Liam Page lived after he left Beaumont.
Like I said, I am not a fan of Liam Page. Why? Well, the fact that he did leave Beaumont & Josie the way he did made me hate him (in a way). And reading this book is like going through that scene over again. It was heartbreaking but enlightening at the same time. But just to get the record straight, I understand why Liam had to leave but I still hate how he did it.
Hands down to Heidi McLaughlin in writing this book with so much sincerity and genuineness from Liam’s side. I think she did a wonderful job in giving fans of this series the back story of Liam & Josie’s life in high school. Liam has always been a leader and being a leader comes with so much responsibility & pressure that at the end of this book all those expectations and pressure made him leave the place he loves and the only person he wants. Reading that scene made me furious and sad. I guess, it’s understandable but with him leaving and not knowing things made it very difficult not just for him but most especially to Josie.
This book tells a story of Liam & how he coped and pursued his dream. All the partying and girls was told in this book yet the other side of him that he left in Beaumont still lingers. It’s obvious he loves and will forever love Josie but I still hate him. HAHAHAHAHAHA! There was some fast forward scenes in this book and for me it was okay. I think it was necessary to connect all the dots in the story and it made more sense.
As a fan of this series, I am still hoping for the book about Liam & Josie where I can finally say that I don;t hate Liam anymore. I am still looking for more effort and grand gestures from Liam Page. I know he did some in Forever My Girl but for me it was not enough. I mean, I want more effort from him and a story that focuses on his and Josie’s life after FMG.
I recommend this book to be read after reading all 3 books in the series. This is not a standalone and I think fans will very much appreciate this book, especially those who are fans of Liam Page. I really hope there’s more though. *fingers crossed :)
