My take:  Cora Kelly was adopted as an infant by affluent parents and lived a good life. That didn’t stop the need to know who her birth parents were and why they gave her up. When her search leads to her birth mother will she be prepared for the answers.
Cora, an art teacher, interviews at the school for troubled boys that was founded by Aiyana, her birth mother. The person who hired her is Eli, one of Aiyana’s adopted sons. Cora is stunned to know that her birth mother would let her go but adopt several sons. One more question that needs an answer. Eli will figure prominently in Cora’s story. They have an attraction to each other that neither bothers to fight. Lots of intimate scenes for these two. On one level that kind of bothered me. On another level it was understandable.
I thought the resolution of Cora and Eli’s story was surprisingly quick and pat. I can live with that. Finding Our Forever is the first in a new contemporary romance series by Brenda Novak. I liked it and look forward to reading the books that follow.

  1. Novak is one of those authors that I have a mixed reaction too. On one hand her books always pull me in but on the other there’s frequently an ick factor. I’m not sure how I feel about the adopted brother situation though I can see how there’s technically nothing wrong with it. I’m curious to find out the back story as it sounds intriguing.


    • Yes, I know what you mean. My issue wasn’t so much the adopted sibling aspect – they’re adults who never lived together in a family situation – but the motivation of their physical relationship. If you read this I’d be interested in your thoughts!


  2. Hmm questions to be answered, like that! In spite of a few holes that you noted it is always telling that it was still good enough to enjoy and want to continue on with the series.
