Review of the Finding Me Series by Michelle Mankin

Find Me (Finding Me, #1)
Almost forty-one-year-old Annabelle Morris, wife to multi-billionaire record label executive Charles Morris of Zenith Productions, and mother of two is at a crossroads in her life.

Separated from her husband after walking in on him having sex in the public restroom of a charity event she was hosting, she has arrived on the island of St. John alone and rejected, determined to re-evaluate her life and her marriage. She's tired of being her husband’s showpiece while he pretends she doesn't exist. She's tired of trying to make their marriage work for the sake of their two teenage boys.

When she meets Johnny Lightning, a sexy but mysterious piano-playing, bearded sailor, she is tempted to break vows she has never before broken. But Johnny is much younger than her and seems to be hiding more than a few secrets of his own.

From the laid-back sandy beaches of the Caribbean to the elite circles of Dallas high society, Annabelle is forced to make critical choices.

Is a chance for happiness worth the risk of giving up the life she has always known?
Worth jeopardizing her own and possibly even her children's future?

In the end, will she stay on her present course or brave a new and uncharted one?
Find Me, Remember Me, and Keep Me is a full and complete novel in three separate parts.
A standalone Tempest spin-off.

My Review
Fin me is part 1 of the Finding Me Series
The Series is in 3 parts = Find Me #1. Remember Me #2. Keep Me #3
Michelle Mankin is a new author to me.. but after reading these amazing books, I now have to read all and every book by this very talented author
WOW... Michelle is a really talented lady
Find Me gripped me from page 1 and from then I just couldn't put it down
* One thing I noticed and loved about these books was that the author put the book Title definition at the beginning of the book... which kind of explains what the books meaning in... Loved It, a really nice extra touch <3
OK.. in Find Me we meet Anna, her best friend pushed her to take a short break away on the island of St Thomas, to regroup and find herself .
She just found out that her husband has been cheating on her and not for the first time.. so she is really down
Claire Anna's best friend books her a flight to Claire's brothers villa and tells her to go away and enjoy herself, in the mean time Claire will watch Anna's two boys... although un-happy to leave her sons, Anna boards the flight to St Thomas... and its there that she meets Johnny
OMG I think I have totally fallen in love with Johnny <3
Johnny has been hurt in the past by someone he truly loved... since then he has secluded himself to his Villa in St Thomas and he keeps himself guarded away from everyone... including his sister Claire
So when he arrives to pick Anna up to take her to his villa, he instantly puts up his guard
He see's her fancy clothes and perfect hair, and thinks she is just another typical rich bitch basically
Over the course of her time on the island, he gets to know the beautiful, damaged woman underneath the flashy clothes...
he really likes what he see's and finds himself wanting to know more about the broken Anna
Anna and Johnny are explosive... like WOW
Find Me had me swooning, laughing... (HAHA "Fancy Face") and also at times it was kind of sad.. it gave me all the feels
The Book kind of ends in a cliff hanger, so you will want to dive straight into book 2.. which thankfully is available now :) so you can dive straight in 
Overall... Find Me was a really awesome, gripping, Romantic read....
A HUGE 5 "Fancy Face" Stars
Well Done Michelle.... Amazing
REMEMBER ME - Part Two (Finding Me)
Remember Me (Finding Me, #2)
My Review
Find Me (book 1) must be read first
I absolutely devoured Find Me (book 1)... and had to dive straight into this book after finishing the first book... I couldn't wait to find out where the story would lead
In Find Me we saw how Anna met Johnny... but as you should know if you have read it... that ending what ARRRRGGGHH... NOOOOO !!!!! scream at your kindle kind of end...
But don't worry there is so much more drama to come in this book... oh boy :)
We also get a few surprises too.... OMG SHOCKER (Johnny)....
was not expecting that, I knew Johnny had some secrets... but omg that was a good one :)
Anna (and Johnny) goes through so much in this book, I really felt for Anna... she just felt kind of... stuck
and she felt as if she had no options and I felt so so sorry for her :(
If you fell in love with Anna and Johnny in Find Me.. oh boy your in for a real treat with Remember Me
Read it you will love it
p.s. OMG... Can I just say WOW what a way to end a book........ haha 
Michelle.. Love, Love, Love the way you ended this book, even though it is kind of a cliff hanger (which I normally HATE) 
But this was a good cliff hanger :) 
and..... book 3 is available NOW, so no wait.. you can dive straight into the final book in this epic series
Overall... Michelle did not disappoint with Remember Me
I absolutely loved book 1.. so I was nervous to start this book as sometimes the second book never lives up to the first book... But no, Remember Me just made me fall more in love with these amazing characters (well some of them) haha
You all NEED to read these books.. I cant recommend them enough 
5 HUGE "Remember Me" Stars 
KEEP ME - Part Three (Finding Me)
Keep Me (Finding Me, #3)
Keep Me is part 3 in the Finding Me Series
Wow, Just Wow... I am not really sure what else to say
After reading, loving and devouring Find Me and Remember Me, I was eager to start this final book to read how this amazing story would end... and It did not disappoint
In Keep Me we get to see Anna find the strength and courage to fight for her freedom and to start living by her own rules... not her husbands
We also get more Johnny... :) which is always a good thing 
Sigh.... I didn't think it was possible for this man to be any more perfect.. but he just keeps getting sexier and more swoon worthy, the more I read about him 
<3 I really love
In Keep Me we also get plenty or drama, suspense, lots of LOL moments and of course swoony romance 
This three part series has been emotionally brilliant, steamy, full of swoon and just a really amazing read
I honestly loved.. I spent two long sleepless nights, simply because I couldn't and wouldn't put the books down.. they had me from page one of book one and never let me go until the very last chapter... just amazing
Michelle has now become one of my fave authors 
I seriously want to thank her for writing these epic books for book addicts like me to enjoy and fall in love with <3
100* series.. I couldn't find I single thing I didn't like about these book (well except Anna's husband)... haha, but all great reads need a villain ;)
Amazing Must Read Series
