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?
This is the first book in the Lost & Found Series and its a debut author.
When I got the email from Mark My Words looking for bloggers to participate on the tour for this book I quickly hopped on board because the book sounded really good.
One of the best things about reading a debut book is you have no idea how the author writes so you have no idea what to expect and I have to say that I really enjoyed the book and I will definetely look for future books from the author. Just a FYI if you plan on reading this you should make sure you have some tissue on hand because I was literally crying reading the book.
This book has everything you could want in a book, romance, anger, pain, heartbreak, and so much more. You will be on an emotional roller coaster for beginning to end.
One of the things I loved about the book is that it was very realistic and you could actually see this happening in real life and I am sure it has.
Five years ago Camryn left New Jersey with her son, Gavin in hopes of finding a better life for them in California. She has everything you could possibly want in life until Camryn’s mother dies. Camryn decides she should head back to NJ with her son. Back to the place and the people she left.
Out of the whole book apart from Gavin I have to say I fell in love with Cole. They went to high school together and he admits that he kind of liked her back then. I like hearing stories about high school crushes and especially if for some reason they manage to work out, perhaps not at the time but many years later.
It was nice because Cole is still dealing with things from his past just like Camryn. It showed that he wasn’t perfect and no one really is. I am a big believer of things happen for a reason and you could see that in this case. Perhaps it was meant to be or maybe it was with the little bit of guidance from Camryn’s mother, who had left little bits of tidbits for her daughter to find.
I was rooting for Camryn and Cole the whole time and I liked that the author didn’t give them a fairy tale life but put obstacles in their way and bringing people into their lives. This is the true test of a relationship. Can Camryn and Cole make it?
