For Finlay…Review

for-finlay-coverAbout For Finlay: Finlay Thatcher is a lost soul, guilt-ridden after the death of her twin brother. When Alabama’s football coach gives her the opportunity to work for him, she knows it’s her chance to move on, even if it means living her brother’s dream.

Caden Brooks is Alabama’s star quarterback. He’s got it all. The attention of adoring fans. A girlfriend who’d do anything to hold on to him. And a future in the pros. He’s getting along just fine until Finlay steps into his life, despising him at first sight and pushing his buttons like no other.

Unfortunately for Finlay, and her attempt to keep Caden at arm’s length, there’s nothing Caden loves more than a challenge. The problem with this challenge is she comes with a secret that has the power to destroy everything.



Review: I had extremely high hopes for this book. the way the blurb reads I was anxious to see a few things: 1. Why was Finlay so guilt-ridden? 2. How did her twin die and what did she have to do with it? 3. Living her brother’s dream, was she gonna play football?

I had to read this because I was intrigued. I got my answers but they weren’t as thrilling as I hoped. I am going to just assume that Finlay had a form of survivor’s guilt because that is the only logical answer to that question. After reading the book and then going back and re-reading certain parts I didn’t understand why she was so upset. Then again I don’t have a twin so that is a bond that maybe I don’t understand. I do have siblings and would be devastated if anything happened to them so I get that but…ah nevermind. So questions 2 and 3 I can’t tell you the answers to because I don’t spoil books but I will say that this book worked as a romance but it didn’t need the added drama of the death of the brother or her hatred of Caden in the beginning. When I found out the reason and then his explanation I rolled my eyes so hard I thought they were gonna pop out of my head. So for that, I am giving this book 3 stars. It totally works as a romance, but so many things weren’t needed that it took away from the story as a whole.

  1. Nathan is the author of the new adult novels For Finlay, Before Hadley, Until Alex, and Since Drew. When she’s not writing, she’s a total romance junkie! Add an alpha male who’s unlikable in the beginning…even better. Happy endings are a must. Love triangles and negative people are the bane of her existence. Her family, friends, guys in backwards hats, and watermelon margaritas are the light…
