Book Review - Found in You (Lost and Found Series) by K.L. Ruse

ABOUT THE BOOK


Twenty-three-year-old Camryn Singer never imagined that she would return to the place where she lost everything. To grant a dying wish, she moves back to the small Jersey beach town where she grew up, hoping to somehow find the missing pieces of her life. Determined to keep her wounds unopened and her heart guarded, she instead slams head-first into Cole Stevens.

Sexy surfer Cole has always used the waves to numb the pain of his past. But when he runs into Camryn on the beach one day, he wants nothing more than for her to heal his scars and light the spark back in his life.

Will Camryn and Cole be ripped apart when the ghosts from their pasts come back to life, or will they discover that it’s not until you’re lost, that you can be found?

REVIEW


This is a really well written book and the characters are well developed. However, there were parts of the story that just felt forced. Overall I think it was really sweet, and would definitely read another book by the author.

I found the pace of the story a little too quick and found it difficult to believe that the characters would really fall in love so quickly. I don’t think Cam would have been as willing to give Cole a chance so quickly, especially since she was trying to protect her son from getting hurt. Sure she is hesitant throughout, but I think she would have initially put up more of a fight.

I also felt like the characters all felt more “grown-up” than they really were. I know they have had life experiences that would have matured them, but all of them were in their early 20’s and acting like they were in their 30’s.

OVERALL RATING - 4 STARS!
MATURITY RATING - 18+ a little steamy

ABOUT THE AUTHOR

I am a middle school teacher who recently traded in my chalk for a laptop to follow my dream of writing contemporary romance novels. I live with my husband and two daughters in the suburbs of Philadelphia. When I'm not writing, I spend my time reading and relaxing with my family at my home-away-from-home, the Jersey shore.

After I graduated from Villanova University in 2003, I never imagined my path would lead me in this direction. Writing was a hobby, an outlet for me to live in a world of happily ever afters. Now as I watch my dream become a reality, I believe that happy endings do exist.
