Product Description

The sequel to Because of Lucy, the British New Adult romance from USA Today bestselling author, Lisa Swallow.

"She killed a part of me - the part that trusts when someone tells you they love you, and allows you to trust that person with your heart."

Ness and Evan return to Leeds from Europe, and begin their new life together. But the past Evan has buried for years resurfaces and threatens their future.

After fifteen years, Evan doesn't want any contact with the woman who abandoned him, but is unwillingly pulled into his mother's life.

Feeling pushed aside by Ness's focus on her studies and new friends, Evan can't confide in Ness about what's happening. This return to his old behaviour adds more distance to their relationship. When Ness's new friend Ollie picks up the pieces because Evan is away, Evan's insecurities threaten their relationship further.

Then the decision about the future of the relationship is taken out of their hands by something that could end things between Ness and Evan forever.

Praise for Because of Lucy: "Her uncanny ability to write a good heart grabbing story blows me away. This book was so sweet, but also had moments of pure heartbreak. ~ Bookalicious Babes Book Blog

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.

2.0 out of 5 stars This book annoyed me 9 November 2016
By Ana RC - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
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.

5.0 out of 5 stars Wonderful Story. Amazing Author 30 March 2016
By Jennifer B - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition
Finding Evan is the continuation of another story by Lisa Swallow called Because of Lucy. I loved because of Lucy and was a little skeptical about reading this next book as sometimes I feel disappointed because I really want the characters to be happy (probably a psych thing for myself). While I did feel this way, I think that Lisa was being realistic and showing that a happy ending isn’t really an ending at all. It is just one happy moment when an author can end a book, while the story continues with new, and sometimes old, sets of hurdles arise. Lisa Swallow is an amazing writer and I have yet to read a book of hers I do not like. Her writing style and ability to create characters and plots that keep readers interested is not parallel to anyone else I have read in a long time.
In my opinion, Lisa Swallow is a very unique writer. She uses situations that could really happen in real life to create her stories. I really feel like I am living the story with the characters. This puts off the feeling that the author is able to immerse herself into other people’s lives and write from a point of view as if she lived the situations herself. Or maybe she is using her own life as a source to get material. Either way, she uses her words to bring light to situations that most people don’t want to think about. Some people want to escape into worlds that are so unlike their own that they can lose themselves. I like to do that sometimes myself, but I think that there should be something said about an author who can use real life instances and convince a reader that they are living in the same world.
The plot in Finding Evan is similar to the plot in Because of Lucy if you look at the big picture. Evan and Ness are in a relationship now and maneuvering the new waters of living more similar lives and dealing with the slight changes to their relationships. While these two characters developed in Because of Lucy, they still had developing to do in Finding Evan. This is so realistic for me as I believe that not one person ever stops developing and changing until the day their soul leaves this earth. It is nice to see that Ness and Evan are still learning about each other and still have unresolved issues between the two that need to be worked out. I love the idea that love is never ending and that everything can be peachy. With that being said, Ness and Evan are in a real relationship dealing with real life situations. Jealous, secrets, frustration, hurt, and loneliness. These are all real life emotions that we are able to explore through Lisa Swallows eyes.
As with any of Lisa Swallows books, there are some very intimate scenes in Finding Evan. Yes there is some sex, but what I love most about Lisa is she has an ability to make a scene feel intimate without having to involve physical aspects into it. Finding Evan had some of these instances where I felt the raw vulnerability from the characters. This meant way more to me than having a book full of meaningless sex scenes describing every which way a couple can get it on. I felt closer to the characters through these scenes.
Overall, I loved this book. I honestly do not have a single bad thing to say about it except I wish it was never-ending. I laughed and cried right along with the characters. Maybe I am growing up and learning to like different types of books. While I normally love a happy ending, I would love to read more from this couple. I feel like they reflect what real life couples go through. Nothing is ever peaches and crème and I love that Lisa Swallow is not afraid to show that. I would 100% recommend this and Because of Lucy to my friends.

5.0 out of 5 stars Don't miss the continuation of Ness and Evan! 4 April 2016
By Shelley Haase - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition
Lisa Swallow has recently re-released this story. After re-reading it, I was still just as captivated by the characters. I was so emotionally connected and found myself being even more involved than the first time I read this!

This is the second book in the Butterfly series. Now that Evan and Ness are back from their European vacation, the reality of being back in school, dealing with Lucy and being in Med school all complicate their lives. On top of that, Evan's mother reappears in his life after abandoning him 15 years earlier, causing Evan to become distant and pushing Ness away yet again. Ness is questioning whether he will be able to break ties from his past so they can have a future together.

The characters in this book are well written and you feel the trials and tribulations they are going through. They are realistic and pull at your heart strings. This is a journey where each one must make changes for themselves before they can have the future they want. Definitely worth the read.

5.0 out of 5 stars The conclusion of a love story..... 1 April 2016
By Kitty (Catherine Hayward) - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition
This is the second part of this epic, and use the word curiously, love story. In the first we get the gritty, no holds bars description of life for Evan as the brother/ twin of a mentally unstable sibling. The own who has always took responsibility for keeping her alive and stable. Not an easy task were Lucy is concerned. The story is just as gripping and addictive as the first part , which you need to have read before starting this book. This is no less well written, the characters come to life with each turn of the page.
I love Lisa's writing style . She isn't afraid to tackle the hard subjects, but does so realistically and honestly but also with care.
At the end of the day though this is a love ory and you will not be disappointed with this story of love and hope. A definite 5 stars
I was given this book in exchange for an honest review
