Fantastic sexy series!,
This review is from: True North Book 2 Finding Us Jules and Nate (Kindle Edition)
I wanted Nate to want me for me. Geeky, book smart, gentle me."
I was beyond thrilled to receive an ARC of this little beauty. When it landed in my inbox Sunday morning my original plans for the day came to a screeching and dramatic halt. I was no longer an in-demand-mummy. I wasn't a cook, a maid or a wife...I was a completely enraptured audience of one.
Finding Us takes place a year after Livie and Jake from the first book finally got together. This time we follow shy and introverted Jules North on her quest to get the love of her life, playboy bull-rider Nate Morrisey to realise how in love with our heroine he actually is- And my god how he loves her, he just suffers so much internally with an inferiority complex perpetuated by the abuse dealt at the hands of his alcoholic and now jailed father that he doesn't believe he is good enough for wealthy and innocent sweet Julia.
Nate is a sweetheart in this book. He's beautiful, broody, uncommunicative and often down on himself but you really feel his conflict in trying to protect Jules in the long run by staying away from her and Jules too was a protagonist I could instantly identify with. Nineteen years old and wanting the euphoria of attaining her first love but just a little too shy to try (unless alcohol and a bit of Jessie James get you pumped up to deliver the goodies!!). She loved Nate enough for the both of them, to fight for a chance at being 'them' in turn allowing her as a character to grow and come into her own personality.
It's another fantastic bit of writing from Allie Juliette Mousseau. She knows how to keep dialogue to the point, witty and steamy- a perfect combination in any N.A novel. You connect with the characters, especially all the North boys and a fantastic new addition in the shape of Barrel racing Piper, a feisty and mouthy red-head (can't wait to see more of her).
In addition to a brilliant book there is also a mini soundtrack and playlist. I don't know about you but I love when authors include a playlist but even better Allie has added original songs written and sang beautifully by her, which just resonates wonderfully within the goings on in the book and heightens emotions within certain situations.
Finding Us is similar to the rodeo show the gang compete at. You just jump right on into the story, hold on tight for all your worth as the highs and lows buck your emotions and just pray that you make it through to that HEA at the end. I honestly can't get enough of the North brood and I'm super excited to get to the next book in the series after having devoured each book so far inside a day.
Beautifully written and a definite 5 stars.
