Oz (Finding Home, #1)

What happens when temporary becomes forever? Oz Gallagher does not do relationships well. Bored and jobless after another disastrous hook up, he decides to leave London for a temporary job in the wilds of Cornwall. Surely managing a stately home on a country estate will be easier than navigating the detritus of his relationships at home. Six months there will alleviate a bit of his wanderlust and then he can come back to London as footloose and f...

Reviews Oz (Finding Home, #1)

  • ☆ Todd
    This story made me laugh and laugh and laugh.From the revenge that Oz took on his posh, cheating boyfriend, to the way that Oz squared off against the lazy builders, to facing off against Silas' arsehole of an ex, to the snark and banter between Oz and, ooooh, let me see, ummm, EVERYONE, well, all of it had me smiling from ear to ear. Basically, after Oz kicked his pretentious ass of a boyfriend (who was also his boss, oopsie) to the curb, Oz's b...

    4.5 I’d thought the moment when I fell in love would be dramatic and full of noise and energy. Instead, it’s in a quiet bedroom where a soft song plays(...) Get ready for a wonderful romantic comedy in a beautiful setting with two truly adorable characters.Lily Morton gets better and better at creating characters that have great chemistry and this is no exception.From the moment they met,I adored Silas and Oz.If you want to read about two c...

    I absolutely loved the "Mixed Messages"  series, though the first book Rule Breaker is still my favorite. I loved the snark and banter in that one and Dylan is one of my all-time favorite characters. This book kind of reminded me of that one. I had just as much fun reading it ;)Oz absolutely made this book for me. I fell hard for him the moment I met him... as did Silas   Silas is Henry's brother and so some of you already know him from "Ris...

    Lily Morton is the Queen of Snark, no-one manages to inject just that right shade of sarcasm and humour into the biting wit which is the hallmark of her characters and in Oz Gallagher she has outdone herself.I loved Dylan and Gabe, fell for Jude and Asa, adored Henry and Ivo, but Silas and Oz have claimed my heart as easily as the Cornish landscape owns the narrative of this superb romance.There is such skill in making a book's setting be almost ...

    Good lord, there was so much to love about Oz by Lily Morton. In this first installment of the Finding Home series, we finally get Silas' HEA. We first met him Risk Taker; he's Henry's brother. Lily Morton has paired him with a sassy mouthed Irishman named Oz, who's hired to namage Silas' estate. What's not to love Some highlights:-Silas. Big, hairy, kind, patient, dirty mouthed Silas. I. Love. Everything. About. Him. -Oz. Who doesn't love a funn...

    Loved this one. Pretty much devoured it in one sitting.Banter is my jam. Combine that with no ridiculous angst and some scorching sex and I’m one happy girl! Lily Morton is a definite favorite author for me!
  • Ariana
    I smiled, I chuckled, I laughed out loud.Stellar banter, snarky humour and two incredible likeable MCs ... what more can you ask for!This is romantic comedy at its best!I admit it took me two ticks to piece together who Silas is (the brother of our Henry from 'Risk Taker'). But it wouldn't have mattered. This book can be read as a standalone, you don't have to know Henry and Ivo, although they are very well worth it! As are all the other books in...

    Gush, gush, gush. Love, love, love.This book was perfect! Lily Morton is synonymous with FIVE ★'s in my world. Oh my God! Really! I loved the Mixed Messages Series but really, I think this new series has the potential to outshine it. This was just everything. It was so sweet and so funny. It was so very hot and so very romantic. Henry and Ivo!I LOVED EVERY BIT OF IT!I never wanted it to end.I can’t freaking wait for Niall and Milo. CAN’T FR...

    I really, really LOVE this author.Her characters are so funny and adorable.The banter here is as good and entertaining as all her previous books.So. This is a spin-off from the 'Mixed Message' series.Silas is Henry's brother. He's an Earl. He lives in Cornwall, trying to restore his house/castle...He slept with his previous house manager and it didn't end up so well.. For the house AND him.And Oz... Has a habit to sleep with his boss... Try hard ...

    4.25 starsThis was such a fun book! Now I’m normally not a big fan of contemporaries without hurt/comfort, but this was a real winner for me.What made this book such a joy to read was how likable Oz and Silas both were. Oz was just amazing. “You okay?” he asks, kneeling and looking up at me like the sort of wet dream I’ve never been lucky enough to have.I swallow hard. “Peachy. This position is like most Saturdays for me.” I pause bef...
  • Chris
    I really loved this book - a perfect bend of sass, humor and love. Silas was the warm hearted Earl trying to change attitudes from the past, Oz was the snarky, sassy organizer who just couldn’t find his place in space. As Oz moves from London to oversee the restoration process in Cornwall he realizes a few things .... life, love, peace & joy. This really was a feel good story, no angst just happiness... loved it❤ I really loved this book - ...
  • Renée
    Very satisfying read. Not as much angst as previous Morton books, and the "big bad" was a bit ridiculous. Otherwise, loved the banter and love this author.
  • Amanda
    Ever since I read Rule Breaker by Lily Morton, I have been stalking her every release. This new series didn't disappoint at all with Lily trademark humor and endearing characters. In this book, we have power twink, Oz, the little Irish spitfire and Silas, the Earl of Ashworth, with the Cornwall as the backdrop. I mean, nothing is better than a beautiful scenery to set the mood. To be honest, Oz is quite the stereotype for sassy twink that I read ...

    4.5 stars. Honest to God, there's no one that writes characters like Lily Morton. Her books are always filled with humorous moments, amazing banter and snarky characters. I loved her Mixed Messages series so I'm not surprised that I loved every single moment in this book as well. Hands down, Oz is the star of this book. I could've read all day long about him and never be bored. There's enough humor and banter to make you want to snort and not r...
  • Teri
    LOVED this!!! Made me laugh, it was sweet, no major angst or bs, we got to see Henry and Ivo again, which was a plus. I adored Oz, he was just so perfect, I really like Milo as well, hope to see him again. Silas was a doll, so sweet. Highly recommend.
  • haletostilinski
    This was sooo good! Lily Morton has yet to let me down and I love that. She always packs the right amount of humor and romance into her books to keep me laughing throughout but also swooning over the romantic couple. Plus there is also some sense of levity, some realism packed into the humor, and I love that. Because people/situations can be funny in real life without it seeming to be unrealistic (unlike in comedy shows where usually the majority...
  • Sahitya
    It's always exciting to find that a favorite author has a new book out and you weren't even expecting it. That's what happened to me with Oz, because I just happened to stumble upon it and then couldn't wait to start reading immediately. In all my enthusiasm, I didn't even realise that this is Silas's story, who is Henry's brother from Risk Taker and that's just more icing on the cake.Oz is such a delightful character to read about that I fell in...
  • Snjez
    3.5There are things I really liked about this book. The writing was great, it was funny and the relationship between Oz and Silas was really sweet. However, I do feel the story was too light, more like a fairytale. I don't necessarily need drama and angst, but I wish there was more depth to it. It just didn't grab me the way I expected.
  • Joyfully Jay
    A Joyfully Jay review. 5 starsSo I probably say this after every Lily Morton book, but wow, was this story incredible! Morton has a way of combining warm, tender romances with snark and humor, keeping a reader in turns laughing and experiencing all the feels throughout the story. I was captivated from the very first moments and couldn’t put this one down.Before I go too far, Oz is the first book in Morton’s new Finding Home series, which is a...

    Oz 💜 Silas4.5 starsOz: Sassy spit fire who will cut you down with his tongue if you ever try talking down/doubt him. Underneath it all has a loving heart Silas: Kind hearted lover of animals who looks out for those around him. Stands up for others and sees people for who they are and not what they are.These two meet when Oz is hired as a house manager for Silas. When he enters the picture, the house is in disray and he has 6 months to put it t...
  • Marion
    This book was perfect. It was crazy romantic. It had snark and brilliant banter, and it made me laugh. Like I said, perfect.
  • Natalie
    I loved this! It was sweatpants, fuzzy socks and a cat in your lap comfort reading. Has to be a cat, because Ozzy has a few sharp, pointy bits but Silas is everything warm and soft. Ozzy is a marvelous character, his sarcastic humor and irreverent attitude playing perfectly against Silas’s more gentle wit and charm. They seem so opposite but they share some insecurities when it comes to relationships. There’s a fairly slow burn that blossoms ...
  • ~nikki the recovering book addict
    3.5 starsWell.... I might be one of the only ones who didn’t absolutely love this book. I was excited for the release but not completely going crazy over it. I love Oz from the very beginning and Lily Morton has always made me laugh with her dry sense of humour. I absolutely love that. But I there was one part on the book where I felt the “humour” and Oz’s sharp tongue got a little cruel. This was when they met Silas’ ex. I’m all for ...
  • Bev
    4.5 stars from me. Lots of snark and heavy on the romance, really enjoyed it. My favourite Lily Morton read so far, even though for me there were still a few niggles...the main one of which was that all the cars I've ever been in have seats not chairs [Silas teaching Oz to drive]. Not good really as it's been proof-read and edited 😕.
  • Angela
    This was really good. I’m going 4.5 stars because there was a repetitive phrase that started poking my brain and making me twitch. Each laugh, “he threw his head back and laughed”. Like 10 times. But other than that, I had a great time with these guys.
  • Zuzu
    4.5 starsLoved the MC's and I especially liked Silas' POV. Extremely funny. Even though I love to laugh and find quite most things funny, I rarely laugh out loud while reading. But I did several times while reading this book. Great read and one of the BEST epilogues.
  • Elizabeth
    This is a GREAT one. The banter, the snarky humor, the innate goodness in both men. This is an exceptional romance that builds into an epic romance worthy of the setting it is in. A beautiful, vast, enchanting home/manor/estate/mansion, that has been misused, and left in a battered state. With a little TLC it can be the great mansion it was meant to be. Much like the characters, they too have been bruised and battered but they find the missing li...
  • Sali Mes
    Loved it.Loved every thing about it. Both guys are awesome. Different but perfect for each other. Silas was kind and honest with a bit of snark. Oz was full of snark without it being too much, he cares. The romance was on point, no insta anything (well insta attraction), they took their time. It's beautiful to watch them fall for each other. We go on dates with them. They talk and spend time together. The sex is hot and the book is not full of it...
