Isn't it always when you think your life is looking up, that you have to be batted back down? You finally think you're climbing your way out of the hole, until someone steps on your hands.

I thought our relationship was evolving past benefits and into committed, until I realized that everything I knew about the man in my bed was a lie.

Call me a fool, but I help him anyway.


about Brandace || Brandace Morrow is a full time mom of four, and currently stationed overseas with her sexy soldier. Her recent obsessions are Maroon 5, rum and coke, and reading in no particular order. Despite being terribly awkward with social media, she's everywhere. Frequently subjecting the public to pictures of her minion's messes, and everything that is Momdom in the Morrow house.


{ excerpt }.

“I hate you.

“I want to take tweezers and pull all of the hair from your balls.

“Don’t think I’m doing this for you, you lying bastard.

“A pox upon your taint, Finnigan Brennick

“You are the biggest douche nugget I have ever met, and I’ve met a fuck ton, asshole.”

I’m yelling my rage in the overlarge cab of the monster truck I’m driving when my phone rings. I answer, but don’t say anything.

“Sadie?” Speaking of assholes.

I sniff in disdain and say as neutrally as possible, “Finnigan.”

“So it’s going to be like that, huh? Okay, did you have any trouble with the car?” Batty asks. I think about the Mercedes that I left in the ditch by his driveway. Stick shifts are harder to drive than I ever thought possible.
“Nope,” I lie. He’s quiet, like he doesn’t believe me.

“Well, that’s good, then,” he says skeptically. He definitely doesn’t believe me.

“Your destination is on the right,” the GPS’s automated voice says loudly.

“Listen, babe, I’m—”

“I have to go,” I cut him off. I am in no mood to hear terms of endearment. I disconnect the call with one hand and turn the wheel with the other to enter the school.

“Fuck!” I yell as I hit the curb.

{ review }.

First off... something I forgot to say in my FINDING SADIE/FORGETTING POPPER review -- what Batty and Sadie do is amazing.

...and it happens.

Working at a Children's Hospital, you get the opportunity to see these things. Have I seen a Batman on the HOT (hemotology, oncology, transplant) unit? No... but I've seen the countless athletes -- they tend to spend a lot more time on the long term units than they do on my respiratory/infant unit, but they're still there. I've seen the superheroes cleaning the windows. These things truly do happen, and the people who do them are amazing.

When Sadie breaks down and yells at Rachel's parents for not being there... Yep, that happens too. But in this profession, you are taught that you cannot form negative opinions.

Are there parents who drop off their kids and don't look back? Have had too much of their crying baby so they almost consider the hospital their day care? Absolutely.

Are there parents of the HOT kids that just need a few days to themselves? Yep -- can you blame them? These parents may have been in the hospital, day in, day out, for the last fifteen months. They need a break too. It's hard to sit and watch your perfect miracle slowly die.

Does Sadie have a right to be sad and angry with the parents? Sure she does. And the parents didn't owe her an explination. As readers, we are like Sadie and we don't know the full extent to Rachel and her parents' story, but it's hard to not have some sort of anger. On the flip side... they had to have been close by; they made it to her bedside quick enough.


We left off with Sadie learning that Finn/Batty had children... and what a shocker it was (to her, anyway). But she stands up and stays true to Sadie and she helps the man out.

Now... let me just get my "Oh, these two," out of my system...
I have been in love with Sadie and Finn from the get-go. These two are just so fun together. Finn, being this big-wig music executive guy, you would think he'd be all serious, all the time... but he has a playful, fun side whenever Sadie is around.
I love that Sadie is always Sadie to Finn, but I also love the Finn is Batty to Sadie... depending on the time and place, of course.
We get to see a whole new side to Sadie in this book. Gone is the sassy-mouthed, crappy clothes, scream-o girl of FINDING SADIE, and in her place we have a pretty well-rounded woman. She has her moments where she doesn't quite think things through to the point she should -- especially considering the majority of this book she's playing momma, err, Aunt Sadie.

She flips into the mom roll pretty well. She disciplines the girls appropriately, she learns their schedules... she's more on top of their lives than she had been her own. I'm not sure the whole, let's jump on a plane and go to LA thing was her brightest of ideas but...

When I loved most about FINALLY FINN was that although it was still told in Sadie's eyes, we learned a lot about Finn, and I gotta say, I love the man more.

I'm sad that this serial/trilogy is finished (or so I assume). I'd like to see where Finn and Sadie are a few years down the road, to be honest, when Sadie is even less reckless. She's come a long way in the months we've known her, though.
