Where You'll Find Me
Blurb (from Goodreads):
When Hanley Helton discovers a boy living in her garage, she knows she should kick him out. But Nate is too charming to be dangerous. He just needs a place to get away, which Hanley understands. Her own escape methods (vodka, black hair dye, and pretending the past didn't happen) are more traditional, but who is she to judge?

Nate doesn't tell her why he's in her garage, and she doesn't tell him what she's running from. Soon, Hanley's trading her late-night escapades for all-night conversations and stolen kisses. But when Nate's recognized as the missing teen from the news, Hanley isn't sure which is worse: that she's harboring a fugitive, or that she's in love with one.

16-year-old Hanley is shocked when someone speaks to her in her dark garage when she is trying to sneak out to a party, but then asks ‘garage boy’ for help when sneaking back in!
17-year-old Nate may be living in her garage, but slowly a connection forms between the pair, and Hanley realises that she is falling for him. Nate has secrets though, and so does Hanley.
What happened to Hanley to make her so sad? And what did Nate do that was so bad he ended up living in Hanley’s garage?


This was a sweet contemporary romance, with some other issues woven in.

Hanley was an interesting character. She obviously was still trying to come to terms with something that had happened to her best friend, and it was sad that she didn’t get the support she needed from her parents and sister.
Nate was also a sweet guy. It was obvious that he wasn’t really supposed to be living on the streets, or Hanley’s garage, but it was nice how the two seemed to help each other.

The storyline in this was okay. I liked how original it was that the pair met in Hanley’s garage, and I liked the mystery of not knowing either Hanley’s or Nate’s secrets.
The romance between this pair was slow-building, and I liked how they each tried to take care of each other. This wasn’t a sudden romance, and I liked how initially Hanley kicked Nate out of her garage and told him off, even though she then worried about him when it started snowing.
There were a few twists and turns which I didn’t see coming, and I liked how everything worked out okay in the end. It would have been interesting to find out what happened to another of Hanley’s friends in the end, even though it was fairly clear what choice she was going to make.
Overall; a good YA contemporary romance with a touch of mystery.
7 out of 10.

  1. I really enjoyed this one! I liked that even though there were serious issues addressed, the tone was kept light. And Hanley and Nate's relationship development was great. I don't usually like contemporary but this was a nice change :)
