Book Review of Finding Jordie (The Love Lies Bleeding Series Book 1) by HJ Harley


Jordie Spagnato was content raising her daughter on her own, and running a successful New York City hot spot. Enter Nathan Harper: tall, handsome, full of charisma and there to lend a hand when a drunken brawl almost lands Jordie in jail.
Late night walks, rooftop visits and breakfast quickly become their routine until Nathan’s future and Jordie’s past threaten to ruin their lives.

All the yes!

OK, guys. I seriously don't even know how to put my thoughts into a review. I enjoyed this book so much that I just want you all to go read it now!!! But first, take a gander at what I thought were the highlights.

My favorite aspect of this story were the characters! They were so relatable and genuine. Jordie was kick ass  but vulnerable all at once. She said what she wanted when she wanted lol. And Nathan...sigh. He's a wonderful man! Guys, even the secondary characters were on point. SO ENJOYABLE.

Another thing I LOVED was the flow of the writing! I couldn't put this book down. I was hooked from the very beginning. It was such a roller coaster of a ride that I didn't even want to put it down to sleep. #realtalk


OK- GO BUY IT NOW. You will not be disappointed!!! I can't wait to read more from this awesome author! Yay for discovering new authors!!! :)

HJ grew up in Bricktown New Jersey, less than an hour away from New York City. As a teenager and early twenties, she loved hanging out in the glamor of NYC. She was a "City Brat" so it was pretty difficult for her to pack her stuff and three cats in 2005, for a life changing road trip, moving to California. She's travelled around the country until she met her better half in 2005.
After serving twelve years in the Air Force, the man of her dreams ended his military career and they moved to Georgia in 2007. Since then, they've settled down in Leesburg GA, and had their first child.
No place has ever come close to replacing the magic of New York City for HJ. So when it was decided to try this romance writing gig out, naturally her first book 'Finding Jordie' would be set there.
HJ enjoys reading, and spending time with her family. Reality TV is a guilty pleasure and she's a sucker for romantic comedies and Robert Pattinson. HJ is a pro at goofing off, She talks with my hands, (She's Italian!) She drinks way too much coffee, and gets too little sleep. Oh, and she has a thing for Jackie-O sized sunglasses. HJ's has five furry kids and most importantly, one beautiful daughter. HJ is always striving to be the best Mom possible.
HJ's very passionate about the things she loves, that's why she was outraged when they cancelled SMASH and Southland! It should be considered a small miracle if you ever get to see a serious or pic of her posing all nice and pretty...She's not that girl. She's a spontaneous goof and believes the best things in life come naturally. Yes, that includes random no make-up selfies during a 2:00a.m. writing marathon.
