Lost and Found

Saturday, June 15, 2013


There’s complicated. And there’s Rowen Sterling.

After numbing pain for the past five years with boys, alcohol, and all-around apathy, she finds herself on a Greyhound bus to nowhere Montana the summer after she graduates high school. Her mom agreed to front the bill to Rowen’s dream art school only if Rowen proves she can work hard and stay out of trouble at Willow Springs Ranch. Cooking breakfast at the crack of dawn for a couple dozen ranch hands and mucking out horse stalls are the last things in the world Rowen wants to spend her summer doing.

Until Jesse Walker saunters into her life wearing a pair of painted-on jeans, a cowboy hat, and a grin that makes something in her chest she’d thought was frozen go boom-boom. Jesse’s like no one else, and certainly nothing like her. He’s the bright and shiny to her dark and jaded.

Rowen knows there’s no happily-ever-after for the golden boy and the rebel girl—happily-right-now is a stretch—so she tries to forget and ignore the boy who makes her feel things she’s not sure she’s ready to feel. But the more she pushes him away, the closer he seems to get. The more she convinces herself she doesn’t care, the harder she falls.

When her dark secrets refuse to stay locked behind the walls she’s kept up for years, Rowen realizes it’s not just everyone else she needs to be honest with. It’s herself. - Goodreads

One thing that I love about reading? discovering a gem of a book unexpectedly. Lost and Found found a way into my system and settled there for quite a long time. It wasn't what I expected. It wasn't what I was prepared for but I was hooked from the beginning till the end. It was an enchanting and amazing read that I have a hard time forgetting it. This is not just a romance story but it is also a story of finding ones self. This is not about summer romance but is also about discovering new things and new loves and self worth. And again, I found myself walking into a new man to add to my elite list of book boyfriend, the ever gorgeous, sexy and good natured Jesse Walker. He's not a manwhore but is in fact a virgin. He's not a rock star but a country boy. He's not a badboy but a cowboy that wears pants that are too tight. He's not mysterious but is laid back and had no dark secrets to hide. He doesn't drive a Harley or any kinds of muscle and luxury cars. He has an old truck he named Old Bessie and a stallion  he named Sunny. He isn't what I go for but I found myself falling in love with him because of his goodness, loyalty and his good boy personality. 

Lost and Found is not the first Nicole Williams book that I've read. In fact this is already the fifth one but this had solidify Nicole Williams status as one of my favorite New Adult and Contemporary Romance author. How she created and weaved her stories are truly amazing.
