Book Review for Finding Kyle by Sawyer Bennett


When you’ve lived your life as a criminal…
When you’ve done unspeakable things …
When your soul has become dark and stained…

The path to redemption begins where you least expect it.

Kyle Sommerville is in hiding and doesn’t want to be found by anyone. Certainly not by his quirky, free-spirited neighbor who’s managed to push her way past the walls he’s built around him. But Jane Cresson’s indomitable will and insatiable curiosity about her reclusive neighbor makes it impossible for Kyle to stay immersed in his dark world.

Little by little, she claws through his shell.
Day by day, she gets him to smile a little more.
Night by night, they both find pleasure they never knew existed.

When Kyle’s terrible past is exposed, Jane begins to think she’s in over her head. Can her love for this broken man finally clear his path to redemption, or will Kyle’s darkness finally extinguish every bit of hope she’s put into him?

"The tug-of-war this man plays on my emotions from second to second is disorienting to say the least."

I don't know how else to explain Kyle....but grumpy!!! Ok, probably not grumpy, but surly for sure. He had a two foot thick wall between his heart and his head and he was stubborn AF!! I mean, I completely understand he dealt with pure hell when he was undercover messing with Mayhem's Mission and all the stuff he had to do to infiltrate them, but...wooh!! He was dealing with some stuff. He had nightmares and he was constantly looking over his shoulder. He lost his moral compass at one point and he had a very bad self-image because of the horrors he saw and crimes he committed. I cannot imagine the demons he wrestles with on a daily basis.

But, little does he know Jane is there and she's going to break into his heart and mind and make him smile more than he wants. And let me tell ya, I loved Jane!! Jane was a quirky and fun introverted extrovert. What? Yes, sounds funny, I know, but I don't know how else to explain her. She was very secure in who she was and put herself out there with quiet confidence, and I loved the way she made Kyle shake his head. I laughed quite a bit during this book because of her quirkiness and her determination. She had a certain innocent naïveté to her and I know that scared Kyle away....but she was undeterred and the fact that she kept on wiggling herself right on into his life was too funny!

I want to point out that the buildup of these two characters was pure.
She's so happy
He's so gruff
They meshed really well!!!

I honestly questioned Jane's reactions when all hell broke loose, but I had to make myself stop and think from her point of view. Was it hard? Yes. Very much so, but again....that wasn't my reaction, it was hers. I wish she was a little more understanding of him and the reason he was so secretive. Clearly it worked out in the end. Overall, the story was a great story and I loved the epilogue. It gave me the chills and a goofy grin.

Finding Kyle was classic Sawyer Bennett. A guaranteed good read with a story that will make you fall in love with the characters and allow you the quick escape you are accustomed to. Once again, I got caught up in the world of Sawyer's men and their walled off hearts. I love it!

"Goddamn it, she's cute. That makes her seriously dangerous to a man like me."
