The Summary

Brianna is lost for the fourth time in her life. Each time was unexpected, and each changed the course of her future. The first life-altering event occurred when her mother died, and she moved to Minnesota to live with her father.
The second was when she was kidnapped at the age of seventeen and forced to be a slave. She would never forget those ten months. Brianna thought her life was over.
Everything changed again the day Stephan steamrolled into her life and brought her home to live with him. She had no idea what to expect—what life with her new Master would hold. That first month with Stephan was, in some ways, more confusing than the prior ten. As a slave, she’d known her place. With Stephan everything was new and different. He’d given her freedom and so much more.
Five months after Stephan rescued her, Brianna once again finds her life flipped upside down.
In this fourth, and final, installment of Finding Anna, Brianna must unearth strength she never knew she possessed. Stephan can no longer protect her from the outside world. She must learn to trust herself, embrace who she is, and discover who she wants to be. Only by facing her demons can Brianna find true happiness and peace.

~ Excerpt ~

“Do you love her?”
I opened my mouth to reply, but no sound came out. The answer was simple. Yes, I loved Brianna. I always would. Things were complicated now, however. And even though my feelings for Brianna weren’t in question—at least for me—I didn’t know if I should share them with anyone. It didn’t have anything to do with trust. I trusted Sarah. The reality, however, was that if worst came to worst and I was charged, Sarah and anyone else who knew me could be called to testify. For their own safety, I had to keep things to myself.
Luckily, my cell phone started ringing, giving me an excuse not to answer her. I looked at the caller ID. It was Oscar. “Hello?”
“Are you able to come by my office today?”
I glanced over at Sarah, who was waiting not so patiently beside me. “Sure. When do you need me there?”
“As soon as possible. Emma called. She wants to talk to the two of us.”
Before I knew it, I was on my feet. Sarah followed after me, a look of concern on her face.
I ignored her as my sole focus was on Oscar. “Is something wrong? Is Brianna all right?”
“Calm down, Stephan. As far as I know, Brianna’s fine. Still living with Cal Ross. I didn’t get the impression something was awry, more that she wants a discussion. “
I took a deep breath, feeling the tension ease. “I’ll be there within the hour. Will that work?”
“That should be perfect. I’ll call Emma and let her know.”
Pocketing my cell, I walked behind my desk and began closing everything down. I would go see Oscar and then work from home for the rest of the day. There wasn’t anything here that needed my immediate attention.
Once I had powered down my computer and had the papers I was taking with me in my briefcase, I looked up to find Sarah staring at me with a smug look on her face. “What?” I asked, not understanding her expression.
“Well I guess that answers one of my questions, at least.”
“What question is that?”

“Stephan Coleman has finally fallen in love.”

Four Stars

This was an absolutely wonderful end to a gripping series!! I have read and reviewed every book in this series and I am thrilled that they are all out now because I guarantee you won't want to stop once you start this beautifully emotional ride!

I am going to give a brief recap of the previous books so you are not completely lost here....

In the beginning we meet Stephen Campbell, we are not really sure what to make of him except we know that he is a Dom, but believe me, he is a good guy, they best! When a friend contacts him to let him know of a man who he believes is holding one of his so called 'slaves' against her will, he asks Stephen to pose as a buyer with interest in acquiring a slave to see if he can help this girl. Stephen does as his friend asks and when he meets with Ian he immediately knows that Brianna is being held against her will and offers to and ultimately purchases her to get her free and safe. Now I know this sounds shady but Stephen believes he will save this girl, set her up in a safe place and help her get back on her feet and that is the end of it. OMG! That is sooo not the end. Stephen takes Anna home with him and discovers she is completely broken. Ian and his filthy fucker friends beat, raped and humiliated her over and over for months. Now Stephen is not sure what to do but he needs to help her and over time(the next three books)and a lot of judgement from friends and family, Stephen and Brianna fall in love and he helps her, albeit slowly, to learn to live, love and trust again. 

When we pick back up in this fourth and final installment we find Anna has moved in with Cal and Jade to try to protect Stephen from being even more persecuted by the press and the authorities. I don't want to give to much of the story away but now that Ian is in custody, word has gotten out that Stephen actually purchased Brianna you can imagine that most everyone has something to say about this. Even Brianna's old friend Cal stands in judgement of Stephens lifestyle and is determined that he has brainwashed Anna and is controlling her. That they aren't really in love, blah, blah, blah. 

Now, I am only going to spout off a little here about how nobody should stand in judgement of the life choices of consenting adults. I know people are always going to judge things they don't know or understand but I don't have to like it!! Ok, all done. 

The issue I think the supporting characters in the story have here is that it takes them a really long time to come to the conclusion that both parties involved ARE consenting adults and that Stephen, whom even his family knows is a good man, are having trouble realizing just how much Stephen loves Anna. He would give his life for her kind of love. 

Everyone does come around eventually in the end and the bad are punished and they Hero and Heroine of our story get the HEA they so incredibly deserve but there is a lot of pain and struggle to get there. I will end by saying again just how much I loved this story and taking this journey with Stephen and Anna. I will also encourage anyone who hasn't read it to definitely pick it up, especially now that the entire series is out!! I promise you'll enjoy this story about just how strong the human spirit can be when surrounded by love, friendship and family!

 About the Author
Sherri spent most of her childhood detesting English class. It was one of her least favorite subjects because she never seemed to fit into the standard mold. She wasn't good at spelling or following grammar rules, and outlines made her head spin. For that reason, Sherri never imagined becoming an author.
At the age of thirty, all that changed. After getting frustrated with the direction a television show was taking two of its characters, Sherri decided to try her hand at writing an alternate ending and give the characters their happily ever after. By the time the story finished, it was one of the top ten read stories on the site, and her readers were encouraging her to write more.
Seven years later, Sherri is the author of seven full-length novels and one short story. Writing has become a creative outlet that allows her to explore a wide range of emotions, while having fun taking her characters through all the twists and turns she can create.
