A psychiatric facility is the last place anyone would think they could find love, yet that’s just what happens when Riley and Hunter meet.  The men’s problems may have brought them together but will they keep them apart in the end?

We Found Love by authors Kade Boehme and Allison Cassatta is an angst-driven story that touches on topics that may be difficult for some readers.  The story grabs you from the beginning with its intense main characters, and will hold your interest until the last page. 

Riley is a young man whose life was turned upside down when he was just a young boy, and never righted itself.  His story is one that could be taken from the evening news.  The authors did a good job making this character and his actions appear realistic.  I wanted him to find his HEA, yet, really did not see the possibility of him ever leaving Hartfield.

Hunter is slightly older than Riley and is having a hard time getting over the death of his boyfriend.  Hunter’s way of coping is one that many others have followed.  It’s not unrealistic to believe, like his siblings did, that Hunter was trying to kill himself no matter how hard he tried to claim otherwise. 

While I liked the connection that these two formed, I could not help waiting for the other shoe to fall.  When it does, be prepared for some tough scenes to follow.  My heart went out to Riley and Hunter and I am glad the authors found a way to bring their relationship together in a realistic fashion.  They also did a good job wrapping the story up in a way readers will like. 

We Found Love will take the readers on an emotional rollercoaster ride.  This is a book that has found its way to my keeper shelf, and I will be reading it again in the future.
