Finding Home: Livie and Jake (True North #1) – Allie Juliette Mousseau

“When you’re lost… True North”
The North brothers were hell on wheels-adrenaline-junky bad boys. You’d think they had a death wish – every one of them – but they didn’t really, they just got off on the thrill of pushing every limit, that gravity or any other force told them they couldn’t conquer. What they weren’t prepared for were the women that would steal their hearts.
Book 1 True North Finding Home Livie and Jake
Livie Morrisey is dreading seeing Jake after his heroic homecoming from Afghanistan. She’s been in love with Jake North since she was a little girl, but he was three-and-a-half years older than her and her big brother’s best friend. She was always nothing but the off-limits little sister – until the night before Jake left for the Army, when he’d given her her first kiss. They’d kept in touch for a year, but once Jake was deployed to Afghanistan, he’d cut off contact suddenly and she’d never heard from him again. For the past three years Livie has kept herself distracted with homework and her university studies, but now Jake’s going to be up close and personal. And Livie can’t decide if tonight’s finally the night to prove to Jake she’s all grown up or the night she should let him go forever.

MY REVIEW
I adore Allie Juliette Mousseau and her writing style, she brings everyone of her characters to life with such great detail. Her plots draw you in and fill you with such emotion bringing the story to another level of enjoyment.
I have fallen in love with the North family and their extended family having read The Ink and Steel Brothers books, you just cannot wait to get your hands on the next family members story.
Olivia and Jake have shared a secret attraction over many years and the small glimpses we saw of how they spent time together in secret before Jake joined the army were beautiful.
I really enjoyed how the story unfolded with Jake and Olivia trying to restart their relationship, and im really glad they had to work at it, that Allie didnt make it a easy road for them, it made it so much more interesting.
Along their up hill struggle Livie really stepped up to push Jake through the hard times to help him overcome the serious issue many service people face when trying to fit back into the civilian mould.
Jake and Livie’s story is one of those that proves true love is out there, they had young love, a separation and then that love was rekindled ten fold.
