Book Description:

There’s optimistic. And there’s Jesse Walker.

If he wasn’t so charming, his sunny disposition and incessant grin would get old. Fast.

Falling in love with the girl who had at first seemed immune to it, was the best thing to happen to Jesse since the Walkers adopted him into their family when he was five. But loving the girl who has her fair share of secrets is about as easy as that same girl loving the boy who seems to have none.

As Jesse’s life continues at the ranch, and Rowen begins making her mark in the Seattle art community, they begin to wonder where the middle ground is. Or if there even is one.

As push comes to shove and choices aren’t only needing to be made, but forced to be made, Jesse and Rowen have to face what their lives might look like without the other.

Can two people with such tragic pasts and different presents, go on to expect a promising future? Whatever the answer, they’ll need a lot more than love to make it.

About the Author

I’m the New York Times and USATODAY bestselling author of the LOST & FOUND series, the CRASH series, and a handful of others. Basically, I get to do what I love. Every single day. I write romance because I’m a sucker for a good love story, and I write happy endings because there are too few of them in real life.

My Review...

I wanted to like this so much because I love love Loved Jesse in the first book but here are some of my thoughts with this book:

1) Jesse either developed a mangina or lost his balls and became a bit of a pansy

2) Could Jesse really be that clueless about the opposite sex with Jolene .. Reallyyyyyy

3) Rowan became a stronger better version of her self 

4) Garth almost stole the show and became the new shining star and I hope that maybe that now that he has helped to settle a score that he will be free and clear for him to find love....Josie maybe :)

5) The dual martyrisms between Jesse and Rowan Ugh!!!! I wanted to bitch slap some sense into those two as this continuing theme was killing me. *whine* - no I love you but I have to protect you...blah blah - I am such a screw up you deserve better...blah blah.

You get my drift.  The sad part was Jesse's past to me wasn't even an issue as he didn't do anything wrong he just had a really bad childhood.

The first story was so well done and this one had such huge potential but some parts nearly killed me with a bit of disappointment but in the end I am still a Jesse lover even though he lost his balls and was happy with the ending of how it all played out.

Even though there were some points that didn't work for me I did still like the story. I was glad to see the growth of Rowan and Jesse with the love and support of the Walkers even though they hit some bumps in the road they found what is worth it and fought for it.

3. 5 Ball losing thumbs up!
