Deni and Sienna are back together after two years. We learn what happened to Deni during that time only by his telling a summary of it. Spider seemed to not be what he should have been just by his actions in this one. I thought he was a very good friend to Sienna and wouldn't act the way he did even with the ways things were going with Sienna. I liked the romance between Deni and Sienna and enjoyed reading about their trip. Both of them experiencing a new place together was a plus. The reason for the 3 star was the fact that they were going after a sex trader by themselves. These are 2 teens in a strange country with no past experience in doing this. It seemed really reckless and off...

I was bummed to find out this was the second book to the series after I was almost finished, but glad I read it.  I related to the characters and enjoyed the authors writing style.  I also love the fact that this book brings up the topic of child trafficking. Great book!!!

NetGalley gave me this book in exchange for an honest review!

It only took 188 pages - a love triangle that spans three countries, huge language barrier issues, 3 mission trips, lots of rain, Cambodian sex trade relief, and of course a second chance.

If that isn't enough for an entire series of books......yet it is only in 188 pages (and that includes the author's notes.)

This author somehow was able to keep all of my many (ADD) attentions for the entire book. I was scared in the beginning because it seemed so predictable at first. The typical romance; but I was wrong - it was so much more than that. Not many romance-y type books can keep my attention, or surprise me;...

Ahhh! Be still my beating heart. This book truly touches your soul. As per usual i accidentally stumble into the middle of a series or in this case the second book before reading book 1. However, with this this book I didn't feel that you had to read book 1 for this to make sense but I highly encourage as I went back and read it and it really deepened my love for this set of books. 

The plot to this book was well written and I feel like the writer really did their research before hand. It gives you a more immersive experience into charities, how they work and the ups and downs of them. Seeing it from the perspective of the main character was quite nice. It feels like a peek behind the...

Where the sea takes me is the sequel to Where I found you. In the first book, Sienna found a way to kick-start her life after depression. She lost her mum and gave up on life. A trip abroad to work as a Good Samaritan was just what she needed. While there she met a boy, Deni he made her realise her life wasn't over. Now two years later, Sienna still dreams of her two weeks with Deni, but her own life has moved on. Her best friend, Spider wants her to be his, but she can't stop thinking of the boy that got away. Spider is the easy option. Her best friend and companion, but Sienna's heart is placed elsewhere. When Deni is presenting a film he made locally, Sienna gets to see...

Much to my dismay, about a third of the way through this book, I realized it was the second book in a series! I finished anyway because I was so far into it, but I definitely plan to read the first book because I missed A LOT!
Besides that, I did really enjoy this book. Sienna is a college freshman who lost her mom a couple years ago and also traveled to Indonesia after a tsunami to help the people there. Her parents did work like this before and her father continued it after Sienna's mother's death. While in Indonesia she met and fell in love with an orphan there. She could not stay and be with him and left to go back to California, heartbroken. In this book, her love Deni...

A Real Review:
Thank you to Entangled Publishing for providing the ARC in exchange for an honest review.

I got really excited when I read the description for this book because it sounded so unique and different. It's rare when there's a story told from the perspective of charity. So as soon as I received this ARC, I love into it.

Having read this one, it was definitely worth it. Even with it's weak points and soft spots, this is a story worth telling with a...
