Chase Halloway's father is the president of Atlas, the drug dealing motorcycle gang that terrorizes most of our desert town. 

My stepfather turns out to be a rival drug dealer, and I'm pretty sure he killed my mom two years ago. 

I'm not supposed to fall in love with Chase. He's not supposed to know I even exist. 

But when he finds me, he can't let go. 

And when I find myself in his arms? 

I hold tight. 

I have to. 

Because if I don't, I might just die. 

With or without him.

  • Love at First Sight!

    By AngSmith98
    Finding Allie is a great beginning to this series. Allie is fighting for her life and her freedom from her obsessive stepfather. After meeting Chase during a bar fight, he becomes her knight in shining armor! I can't wait to read the next book where Allie finds herself fighting to get away from a scary drug cartel wanting to sell her body for profit. All thanks to her stepfather's promise to trade her virginity for payment. You gotta check it out to grasp her raw desperation in finding the truth to it all.

    A modern Romeo and Juliet take with lots of twists. Allie is trying to escape her step father and Chase is trying to escape the life his father wants for him. When they meet sparks fly and the connection is immediate. As they think things are under control a curve ball is thrown their way. A story filled with passion, love, ruthless family, and loyalty. I can't wait to finish the series!
  • Heartwarming Story

    By Mrs TCA
    I received an ARC in exchange for an honest review. Finding Allie is book one in the Breaking Away series. Warning, I suggest downloading books 2 and 3 before starting to read Finding Allie because you will want to continue the story. From different yet similar worlds, each has found their soulmate in each other. Set against the backdrop of motorcycle gangs and drug dealings, the odds are against the couple. Meli Raine has crafted a love story between Allie and Chase that weaves its way into the heart of the reader.

  • Not Your Typical MC Romance

    By GLaurie K.
    Finding Allie is the first volume of this trilogy in Meli Raine's Breaking Away series. You're pulled in from the start, uncovering the background that has led Allie to her currently desolate and hopeless state of being. Having recently turned 18 and graduated from high school, Allie is working for her vicious and sinister stepfather, Jeff, at the bar he owns in their one-horse desert town. Allie believes that her mother's tragic death, two years earlier, wasn't the accident Allie's stepfather claims it to be, and she hasn't seen her beloved older sister, Marissa, since prior to her mom's death (when Marissa moved to L.A.). Allie's dream is to save up enough money, from the pittance Jeff pays her, to escape her current situation and join her sister in L.A. Then Allie unexpectedly meets Chase, when the motorcycle club he belongs to barges into her stepfather's bar and violence erupts and he protects her from harm. Even under those violent circumstances, Chase is the first person, since her mother and sister, who makes Allie feel safe. And similarly to Allie, Chase's ambition to become a motorcycle stuntman would require his desired break from his current lifestyle and move to L.A. Unfortunately, Chase and Allie's instant mutual attraction and desire to develop it is vehemently opposed by both stepfather Jeff and Chase's father, the MC president, Galt, enemies who know one another through shared illegal connections. Although I'm not usually a fan of MC related stories, this book doesn't appear to get too heavily involved into the motorcycle club interplay of drugs, violence and other illegalities. It is primarily the story of the developing relationship between Allie and Chase, the damages caused to each as a result of their family circumstances, and the mystery behind the deaths of both of their mothers. It's a quick and easy read and there is a lot of really good descriptive writing that involves you into the story. I also liked that it isn't your typical romance storyline. I was a bit put off by the unrealistic speed by which Allie and Chase's deep connection and claims of being in love with one another was developed, but given that this is supposed to be a modern day Romeo and Juliet type of story, I guess I may be looking for something that does not follow that drift. There is a cliffhanger ending, but I pretty much expected that as this is Volume 1 of a trilogy. I was more than sufficiently interested to read on and learn what occurs next. Fortunately, unlike many other trilogies I have read where you have to wait months for the release of the next volume, it appears that all 3 volumes will be released simultaneously, or in very close proximity of one another. Thank you for that, Meli! And thanks for the opportunity to read your ARC and provide an honest review of this book.
  • LOVED this story!

    By JennaferD
    A must read! Chase and Allie is a great love story you do not want to miss! Chase, in a way, is the knight in shining armor Allie has wanted. She's stuck in a life she doesn't want and doesn't deserve. In walks Chase and sees something isn't right. He practically falls in love at first sight when he sees Allie. This is book one and ends in a cliffhanger but I highly recommend this book and finish the three book series. Well worth the read!
  • Absolutely LOVED this book!

  • Finding Allie

    By Wrightrrc
    I happened upon this author while looking at suggested authors from a friend. So very glad I did! A story that starts out with Bob Seger's emotional and social rollercoaster of a song, "Turn the Page", should be enough to let you know what kind of a story this is going to be. Broken, beauty, yearning, and many more things. I HAVE to finish this series.
