I had been waiting for this book release (very impatiently) since reading Because Of Lucy. I loved BOL and was hoping the intense storyline and huge amount of chemistry would continue into Finding Evan. I wasn't disappointed. The only disappointing factor was having to stop reading it to do other stuff.
It's always tricky reading a second book in any genre other than paranormal, for me. It's hard to know if the intensity and content is still going to be enough to fill another book with the same characters, or whether it's going to fizzle out and spoil the memory of the first book. This was not something I needed to worry about with Finding Evan.
The book leads straight off from the end of summer where Ness and Evan have been traveling around Europe together. Ness is now also enrolled at Uni to do medicine and straight away I can see where some problems may lie in wait for the two of them. It has quite a fast paced speed to it right from the start and I didn't find myself page skimming or getting distracted at all.
There is a couple of new characters introduced in this book which spices up the storyline and causes a few problems for Ness and Evan. One of the new characters (Ollie) is fantastic and I would of loved to know more of his story, lots of secrets and brooding sexiness. Unfortunately it wasn't his story so I'll have to just wonder about him wistfully.
Of course after reading Because Of Lucy, a key factor of the first book is Lucy herself and a big question is whether she will be another onslaught of problems in this book, answer to that question is yes, she returns with a fresh set of problems for poor Evan and Ness.
I constantly spent my time backing either Ness or Evan. One minute in his corner then swinging to hers. They both act ridiculously, then I feel sorry for them. It's like a soap opera. It's quite sad their story has come to an end, it would be interesting to see where they are in 10 years time.
Great twists and turns, and a huge shocker I didn't see coming and totally didn't start welling up at. Much. The emotion is definitely present throughout this book, I seem to find myself frustrated and sad at the slightest thing.
I still love how these books are based in England, it makes a refreshing break from all the stories I read in the gorgeous sunshine of America and English slang is always understood a lot better. :)
A fantastic read, I always feel satisfied to know I waited for a book and it lived up to my expectations.

Enjoyed story easy reading
This book annoyed meReviewed in the United States on 9 November 2016
Prepare for spoilers. I read both books about the H Evan and the h Ness the same night. Maybe not such a good idea. I enjoyed the first book more. We have Ness who is from a wealthy family trying to get her independence, and not rely on her parents. Then decides to go back to to school to become a doctor. We have Evan a college student who has to deal with some heavy stuff, with a family member with a mental illness. Evan started to seriously get on my nerve. In both books he ignores or breakup with Ness and just seems to just let her go. He claims this profound love but he keeps ditching her and then not making much of an effort to get back with her. There is a character a medical student classmate, Ollie who I was actually rooting for to get with Ness. Then it makes me madder that Ness a supposedly smart and independent girl was so pathetic with Evan, ignore me, abandon me, and with no effort she was always go back. It got old and annoying.
