Finding Haven by T.A. Foster Review


Power. Money. Control. Love.
He has all but one.

When movie star, Evan Carlson, discovers his girlfriend’s picture with another man splashed on the cover of gossip magazines, he decides he’s had enough of his fishbowl life and attempts to outrun the media frenzy his relationships have become. Driving until the road stops, he ends up on the remote and quaint Perry Island, where a heartthrob can blend in like the locals and be a beach bum as long as he wants. All that changes when Evan meets Haven Owen, aspiring songwriter and the girl he just can’t get enough of. A summer romance turns into something much deeper and Evan gets tangled in his own web of lies to keep Haven in his life. But when his ex tracks him down, Evan learns there are some things you just can’t outrun.

Is the cost of love, losing all control?


Finding Haven was a great read for me. I really enjoyed the characters and seeing them interact and grow as the story progressed. Haven Owen was just a young woman trying to follow her dream while being stuck in her hometown on an island. Working for her parents in their supply store was not where she wanted to be but because she was able to leave the island and attend school, this was her way of paying her family back. But the minute she had paid them off, Haven planned to leave the small island and head off to write her songs. Dealing with the secret affair of her dad makes this time at the store with him seem endless. When a new problems arise and Haven is told she needs to find someone to cover some shifts, she gets lucky when Jay Grady steps up to take the offer. Evan Carlson or right now Jay Grady, needed an escape from the life of Hollywood and after his latest girlfriend was caught cheating, he knew he had to get away. Meeting Haven and working at the store was not what he had in mind but after seeing Haven cry, he couldn’t find a reason not to offer. Just being there this summer was supposed to be a time for him regroup and figure out his life but fate had other things in store and while these two start a summer fling, feelings grow and so do secrets. Will Evan be able to tell Haven who he really is or will the secrets he has turn out to be too much for her to handle?  Like I said this was a really enjoyable read and I would recommend it!
