Book on sale!! Lost and Found - Nicole Williams

Offerta speciale ragazze!!! Lost and Found di Nicole Williams a soli € 0,89,  formato ebook in inglese , è seriamente da non perdere!!

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.

Ho amato molto questo libro, ancora inedito in Italia, che "ovviamente" fa parte di una trilogia che si è già conclusa!non ho ancora letto gli altri due ma provvederò molto presto!!
Si tratta di un young adult e di una storia d'amore ma niente di sdolcinato o zuccheroso. è molto interessante leggere di come questi due ragazzi, estremamente diversi, riescono ad avvicinarsi e costruire delle basi per un giovane amore, ma soprattutto ad aiutarsi reciprocamente a crescere e accettare i propri errori anche se sembrano irreparabili. 
Stilisticamente non posso dire che sia un libro facile e tanto meno il livello di inglese; ma con un pò di pazienza si prende il giusto ritmo e inoltre la storia è davvero molto coinvolgente , questo motiva senza dubbio ad arrivare alla fine anche se può sembrare faticoso.
Ne parlerò ancora di questa autrice. adoro come descrive i personaggi femminili, mi ha sempre dato una grande carica e lo consiglio a tutte !!! 

“Sometimes we just have to cut off the dead branches in our life. Sometimes that's the only way we can keep the tree alive. It's hard and it hurts, but it's what's best.” 

“We don't deserve anything, Rowen. We don't deserve punishment, we don't deserve happiness, life owes us nothing. realize that." His voice wasn't gentle anymore; it was as strong as I'd ever heard it. "So we have to take what we want because life sure as shit isn't going to freely hand it over.” 

“I bit my cheek and tried not to smile. It didn't matter what I threw at the guy; I couldn't shake that darn sunny attitude of his. Worse of all, I was afraid it might be contagious. "Just so I'm prepared... are all cowboys like you?" I asked, stepping up into Old Bessie.
Jessie stepped between the door and me before I could close it. His body took up almost the entire door frame. "There's no other cowboy like me," he said with a smile.” 

“Why don’t you want to know that I like you, Rowen? Why don’t you want me to tell you I’m so damn attracted to you, I almost don’t trust myself to be alone with you like we are right now? Why don’t you want to know that I care about you so much…?”
