Time for my second eBook review. This is for the sequel to the book Lost & Found, also by Nicole Williams. Near & Far is the continuation of Jesse and Rowen’s story. Rowen has decided that she wants to extend her education in art buy attending the community college a couple of hours away from Jesse and the farm. She has moved away and although they try to see each other as often as possible they still begin to grow apart in the way that young adult couples usually do when any type of distance is put between them. It is like things are changing for Rowen and she is growing as a person while Jesse stays the same because he is basically in the same place doing the same thing. As they begin to grow apart other trials take place that cause them to question their relationship, but just to follow the typical culture of romance novels, they find their way back to one another. I really did like this novel but I did not find it to be as amazing as the first. It was a good sequel that was enjoyable and a good extention of the first book. A third book about Rowen and Jesse is coming out in a couple of months and I hope that it will be as entertaining of a read as the first two were!
I normally blog about music but I thought that it was definitely time for a little change. Occasionally, I will be doing blog posts about eBooks that I have stumbled upon, read, and quite enjoyed. I don’t believe in negativity too much so I’m going to leave It out and only focus on the books that I liked. To start off with, I will write a short review on the book, Lost & Found by: Nicole Williams.
Lost & Found is a young adult (emphasis on the target audience due to latter themes) novel based around a troubled young woman named Rowen. Rowen faces challenges in her life and with her mother. In order to teach Rowen a lesson, her mother sends her off to live on a Ranch with he best friend from university. Upon arrival to the country side, she is greeted by a charming young cowboy named Jesse…and the rest is history (well its pretty typical). Rowen is gloomy. Jesse is positive and attractive. They fall in love despite their differences and they are better for it.
I really did enjoy this book for the fact that I was able to love both of the main characters. I loved the story line and way in which it progressed. I really have nothing that I would change about this book. The main thing that I liked was the reverse in gender roles. Rowen was more experienced in life than Jesse. This is an unusual theme in young adult books so it was refreshing to see a different perspective on youth romance.
I would rate this book a 9/10. It was really enjoyable and I recommend this read! I will post a review of the second one soon!
