New Release & Giveaway: Finally Found by Nicole Andrews Moore

***This is the sequel to Hiding Out

Where one story ends, often another begins. For some reason, Adam Davenport can’t see past the ending. The hit and run has forced him to slow down and stop running from the pain of losing his parents. He has tried to hide behind meaningless, superficial relationships and even more shallow friendships, but the time has come to face his loneliness. Now he is finally ready to start being a family with his brother Sam. However, Sam and Haley, who was once Sam’s personal assistant, are too busy basking in their newfound love. Though breaking the rules for the first time ever has changed Sam’s life for the better, Adam has always broken the rules, strayed from responsibility, and done as little as he could get away with.

One of the main reasons that he refused to believe that Cammie was more than friend material was because she was impervious to his charms. She was so driven and determined to make her new catering company a success that she couldn’t see past her own dreams. Suddenly, Adam found himself behaving in ways he never imagined. He was working to impress a woman, but more than that, he was working to help make her dreams come true. He soon realizes that there are times in life when giving is more important than taking and when helping someone else is more important than what that person can do to reciprocate. He also learns there are times that the biggest risk is to stop hiding from emotions and to start allowing love to finally be found.


Thirty was supposed to be this banner year.  Now it was looking like a huge wake up call.  He had discovered earlier in the day he had no meaningful relationships, as evidenced by the fact that this was his party and other than Sam, Haley, and now the bartender, no one had even spoken to him.  They were enjoying the free food, the free booze, the nice music.  The loft had never looked better…except maybe for that time with the one girl who came home with him from.  Well, crap.  One more name he had forgotten.  There was something about this bartender. 

“So, do we know each other?  Have we ever been properly introduced?”  He was really starting to feel badly about his life.  On the bright side, at least he had over half his life to be better.  This woman was better.

“No,” she said, biting on the inside of her cheek.  “We’ve never really met.”  She was laughing at him.  He could tell.  That’s what the cheek biting was about.

“Are you sure?  There is something very familiar about you.  We never…?”  He decided to use his tried and true method of recognition.  He squinted at her.  Then he looked at her with one eye open. 

She crossed her arms over her chest.  “What are you doing?” 

“I don’t believe you.  You have just a hint of bitter that usually only comes from a one night stand with me…in my experience.”  He gave her a challenging look.

“Don’t you mean your vast experience?  Seriously.  What’s the tally?”  She wiped the counter, walked a few feet away, passed out a couple of sodas and then returned to him.

“I don’t think the tally matters,” he said straightening.  “I think that you have made your point.”  He wanted to stay and talk to her, but he was already feeling low enough.  He decided instead to walk away.  Walk away now before he had anything else to regret.  In some ways, he was sorry he had never noticed her before.  He’d show her.  He wouldn’t hook up with anyone tonight.  And if he did, it would only be with her.
