ARC Review: Finding Us (True North #2) by Allie Juliette Mousseau


Summary: Nathaniel Morrisey thought he had a handle on his affections for the one woman he ever cared about, Julia North, who happened to be his boss’s daughter and best friend’s little sister. But Jules is about to blow that calm self-control he's had a tight grip on all to hell. 

Nate's desire to protect Jules—especially from himself—and the overwhelming emotions he feels for her, have waged a war inside of him; having been abandoned and abused as a child, how could he ever love and treat a woman like Julia North the way she deserved?

Julia North knows Nathaniel Morrisey is the only one for her, but with a past like a dark shadow, Nate's as turbulent as the wild horses he rides.

Will Jules be strong enough to hold on unconditionally, or will she decide it’s finally time to let go?

Initial Thoughts: This was a really cute, yet also hard story that was hilarious at times and sad at times but a good story nonetheless.

The Characters: Julia (Jules) is a really sweet, shy, and funny character who could also be outgoing if her friends convinced her too. I loved how she was understanding of people and she was really easy to connect to. She is a very levelheaded nineteen year old and that made her a really strong character that really added to the story. She also has this secret which I thought was also a great part of the story! 

Nate is a great guy with some not so great moments. For instance, he's always like Jules but it took him awhile to own up to it, now there were reasons behind everything, but still!! Of course there are other parts to the story and overall, I thought Nate was an amazing person.

Livie and Piper. The first book is about Livie and while she isn't in this book too much, I still loved her because she has such a great personality and it's hard not too love her. Piper was so funny and I loved her very outgoing persona as well. Livie and Piper together = Jules not being shy = hilarious scenes!

The Story: Now that I think about it, it's kind of complex. It starts off as a story about two people who've always loved each other, yet never knew the other did, even though everyone around them could clearly see it. But it develops further than that because Jules and Nate do get together so after that, it's a lot about them just knowing each other further and learning to work together and get through difficult situations and it all made for a great story. I loved how well Nate and Jules were able to work together and handle themselves and really become better people through each other!

End Thoughts: Great story and characters. This book has really entertaining and funny but was also able to knock you down a few pegs when tough situations were brought up. You can read this book without having read the first one but the characters are all really great so I don't see why you should miss out on the first one either!! 4 stars.
