Finding Willow by Dawn Robertson: Review

Synopsis:

Where do you turn when all the bridges you have built in life have gone up in flames?
When the ones you love don’t protect you from the monsters lurking in the dark?I never thought at twenty-eight-years-old I would have nothing to show for my life.
A child given away for strangers to raise.
A childhood ruined.
A life full of dead ends, drug abuse, and one night stands.I’m at a crossroads, and I have a choice to make. I choose salvation.
I choose life. I choose myself, for the first time ever.

I will find her. I will find the life I was forced to give up.
I just pray that he stays out of my way.

I am Starburst Bloom and this is my story.

Finding Willow is the follow up book to Hers from Dawn Robertson.  In this installment, we take a look at the life of Starburst Bloom, aka Star, from her point of view.  I honestly can’t even imagine having grown up under the conditions that Star has endured.  Born to hippy parents, Star lived the nomad life, never living in one set place for very long.  She was not shown real love by her parents, had to listen to the sounds of her parents participating in their “swinging” lifestyle and only thought that she found love in her best friend, Seven (the main character in Hers).  Unfortunately, the unthinkable happens to her at the hands Seven’s older brother Blue.  Star then continues on this unhealthy relationship with Blue and ends up pregnant.  Their parents make the decision for her that her baby, Willow, will be adopted by a couple from their commune.  Obviously, Star struggles to recover from the choice that was made for her and she turns to a life of pornography, drugs and alcohol.  Finally hitting rock bottom, Star goes back to where she last saw Willowin hopes of finding her and starting life over again.

“My journey to freedom would bring me right back to my little girl.  Come hell or high water.  I would find Willow.  Or I would die trying.”Back in Woodstock, NY, Star sets out to try to figure out her next step in life and awaits word on where Willowcould be.  She gets set up in a hotel and literally runs right into motorcycle gang stud, Chrome.  Can I just say:  how cool of a name is Chrome???  Dawn picks some great names for her characters!!!  Star and Chrome hit it off sexually right off the bat.  Chrome sees something in Star that he hasn’t felt in a long time and Star starts to feel love, which is something she has hardly ever felt!  Will Star find Willow and have her happily every after?

Finding Willow is another extremely sexual book from Dawn Robertson.  Her words will be considered a little abrasive by some, so be forewarned.  Dawn finds a way to mix hot sex with an emotional and intense storyline. At one point, I thought the story was going in one direction and I was pleasantly surprised when it took a different turn.  The next book from Dawn in Kink the Halls, a continuation of Seven and Star’s stories.
