We Found Love by Kade Boehme & Allison Cassatta

 It’s no surprise Riley Connors is dealing with issues. He was kidnapped as a young boy, and his parents abandoned him after his newsworthy return. He bounced from foster home to facility and back. Now an adult, ghosts from his past continue to haunt him. After a suicide attempt, he is locked away in Hartfield so that people can make him tune in to emotions he has tried to bury.

Hunter Morgan had the kind of love that spans ages. But the stress of college and adulthood became too much to handle, and the love of Hunter’s life turned to drugs. After he overdoses, Hunter finds himself soaring out of control on the same miserable path. His brother finds him and calls an ambulance, and the sister Hunter would rather not have calls it a suicide attempt, landing Hunter in Hartfield.

Finding love isn’t easy, but it can happen under the most dire circumstances. Together Hunter and Riley may be able to grow from their pain. But they will need to learn to live for themselves, letting love come second.
This is a heart wrenching story about Riley, a boy that was kidnapped and found four years later. And Hunter an alcoholic, that has escaped into pills and liquor instead of dealing with past hurts.

We start the story with a then ten year old Riley being found and taken to a local hospital. Flash forward eleven years, to Hunter being woken up in a hospital not remembering anything.  Hunter is court ordered into a mental health facility, were Riley has been for the last nineteen months. Hunter is placed in Riley’s room and this is where they start to form a friendship that over the weeks turns into something deeper. But how far can it go, when Hunter is getting out and Riley is a ‘lifer’?

Once again Kade and Allison (I feel I can call them by their first names at this point, since I spend so much time ‘with them’ well , there printed word) Have made another amazing story. So unlike all the other stories that are coming out right now, Riley such a broken soul and Hunter not knowing he’s damaged. I did find the beginning a little choppy and hard to follow, but that’s because you are in the mind of two broken people. So of course, broken thoughts! And it could have used one more edit, but I have found this true with most all DSP press books? This is not an author(s) fault esp. if they are coming out of a pubs house.  Maybe time for the pubs to relook at the editors?
