I adore Allie Juliette Mousseau and her writing style, she brings everyone of her characters to life with such great detail. Her plots draw you in and fill you with such emotion bringing the story to another level of enjoyment.
I have fallen in love with the North family and their extended family having read The Ink and Steel Brothers books, you just cannot wait to get your hands on the next family members story.
Olivia and Jake have shared a secret attraction over many years and the small glimpses we saw of how they spent time together in secret before Jake joined the army were beautiful.
I really enjoyed how the story unfolded with Jake and Olivia trying to restart their relationship, and im really glad they had to work at it, that Allie didnt make it a easy road for them, it made it so much more interesting.
Along their up hill struggle Livie really stepped up to push Jake through the hard times to help him overcome the serious issue many service people face when trying to fit back into the civilian mould.
Jake and Livie's story is one of those that proves true love is out there, they had young love, a separation and then that love was rekindled ten fold.
Jake is the solider in this story and Livie is his shining beacon of hope in a world filled with darkness and pain. Their love story was nothing short of beautiful to read unfolding through each page and over each and every hurdle and there are som doozy's. Jake is magnificent in this story, your heart literally aches for him, all you want to do is take his demons away for him, heal him- much like our heroine Livie wants and attempts to do. She too was a terrific character- stunning, strong, unyielding in her life-long love for Jake no matter how dark it or he got and simply just a beautiful person inside and out. Even the secondary characters add something to True North, Jules, Nate, the North brood and Livie's alcoholic dad and absentee mother. There is so much love and emotion here as well as added spice and a great chemistry between the two main protagonists. (Loved the drinking game at the homecoming party! Hawwwwt.)
I really don't want to ruin the entire story for you but at one point when I thought one thing, something completely different and gobsmacking happened and I don't know if I was the only one who didn't see it coming, but holy hell! You'll know what I'm talking about once you read the italics and don't blame me if your Max Factor waterproof mascara becomes a black Max Factor waterfall down your cheeks, I forewarned you! If you're looking for a beautiful romance that packs an unbelievable wallop of angst, epic love and emotion, buy True North.
Allie Juliette Mousseau's writing is wonderful. She knows how to bring fun and laughter to a situation (A certain concert scene 'Now it's a party') but she can bring the seriousness just as well, and manages it all with such aplomb and understanding of the topic that you take a minute at the end of the book and think 'S***, this is real-life. This happens every day.' That makes True North all the more poignant...
Definite Book Hangover material right here. Jake has just been added to my top ten book heroes of all time, and that's a damn selective list to be on. Great story, great writing, great characters...need I say more?
Mousseau seems to address some very important and serious issues in her books, this adds a depth to these NA romances, which usually only bring sex-appeal to the table. In Finding Home, Jake has returned home from the Afghanistan war suffering with PTSD, and Livie is Jake's-best-friends-little-sister who has been in love with Jake since she was a kid. The book is quite a bit steamier than I was expecting (I was expecting Romance, and got Erotica - not that I'm complaining). Overall, it was a decent read, I liked the characters, I liked the darker elements to the story and I'm looking forward to the next book in the series.
