Overview

***NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER***


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.

    I loved this book!

    This book was amazing! I loved the characters, especially Jesse. I also liked the messages that the story had like believing in yourself and to quote The Perks of Being a Wallflower to not "accept the love we think we deserve" but the love that we need and is right. I liked the warm country feel the story had and how kind the Walkers were. While reading the story I was able to get in the moment and enjoy what the characters were going through. And of course like any other woman out there I liked the physical relationship between Jesse and Rowen. I mean what's better than a sexy, gorgeous, hunky, kind, tight jean wearing cowboy? Ummm..... NOTHING! But overall this book was amazing and cute and was more realistic than most romance books. I could not put the book down and I think everybody should read this book.

    On a side note I think the song "Bound to You" by Christina Aguilera is perfect for this book. The song talks about how they are bound together and can't let go like Jesse and Rowan. It aslo talks about walls she has built up and how she is unsure if she can trust. It is perfect for this story you just have to listen to it.

    A GREAT RIDE!

    I couldn't put this book down! The characters are so real, the story line exciting, this author certainly knows how to draw the reader into a reading frenzy! The entire time I was reading this, I pictured it as a movie with Cameron Diaz as Billy!

    Don't switch roles!! Please!

    I absolutely loved this book!! Could not put it down! When I heard she is write a second one for this love story i almost had a heart attack with excitement! The one thing i hope she doesn't do with the second book is switch the roles of who's telling the story. I've read books that do that and i honestly don't like it as much as the first one. I want her to keep Rowen as the narrarator because I really like Rowens thoughts being explained because as she said in the beginning of the first book she is beyond complicated. I, personally, think no matter what she writes it will be a great read because she is a great author! :)

    4.5 stars Hello Jesse Walker, and those tight pants of yours!

    4.5 stars
    Hello Jesse Walker, and those tight pants of yours!



    This book was an absolute thrill to read! And it was also a nice change of pace from the other kinds of NA/YA I've been reading lately.
    Well, it’s different in the fact that the swoon worthy guy is a bit different from the guys I usually like to swoon over. That’s right, let’s take a
    step back from those bad, bad boys with those cocky mouths and arrogant egos. And let’s enter Jesse Walker!!

    Okay, so not only was Jesse Walker pretty much amazing in Lost and Found, but every character that Nicole created for this story was a
    thrill to read about. She knows how to create unique characters, characters that really go with her stories. Characters you just help to
    love, or in Garth’s case, you just want to beat over the head.

    Rowen was definitely the kind of female character I do enjoy reading about. She isn't perfect and she makes mistakes; however, she
    doesn't let others walk over her. She takes a stand when she must; she fights when she must, even if she goes about it the wrong way
    or is too stubborn. Rowen started out with dark looks and a dark outlook on life, and then she really showed strength, she became
    someone she could be proud of. It was amazing reading about this character’s development.

    As I mentioned before, Jesse Walker is unlike any fictional boy I have read, okay, there are a few I have read that are close to him, but I
    felt that Jesse Walker just had a little bit more awesomeness than the others. Anyways, like Rowen he isn't at all what he seems. With
    those tight jeans and amazing looks he could leave a trail of broken hearts, but that isn't Jesse. No, he is a very sweet and caring guy,
    but still, like Rowen, stubborn. Other than those tight jeans, I really enjoyed that Jesse didn't judge Rowen by her appearance. He loved
    that about her. And he challenged her, saw her for who she really was. I think Nicole did a great job making a guy that was equal to Rowen,
    that was perfect for her.

    The whole Walker family was a joy to read. I wish I could go away and stay with people like them. They love and cherish others, and do
    not judge people on how they look or act. That brought a good support system to Rowen and Jesse. Then the setting of Lost and Found
    was incredible. I say that because I do not read anything cowboy related. I just can’t, it really isn't something I’m into. However, Nicole
    made me love the cowboy looks, the lifestyle and the tight pants. Oh, the tight pants!! Did I mention the tight pants?? 

    The plot, along with the pacing was really done great in this book. Nicole made it were I couldn't put this one down, page after page, I
    had to keep devouring it; I had to keep reading. I think the reason why I enjoy Nicole’s books so much is because her characters seem
    to challenge each other within the story. They fight, they argue. They are intense, but you can feel the ‘real’ in that. Even though the
    characters are fictional, they are still very much real in their emotions. That makes Nicole’s books that much more enjoyable to read.

    I definitely recommend this book to any New Adult book lovers, and especially if you enjoyed Nicole’s other books, heck, even if you've
    never read anything by her give this one a try. Lost and Found is about overcoming obstacles in life, finding the place one belongs, and
    finding not only love, but family.

    Well, first of all, I liked the sound of this book so much that

    Well, first of all, I liked the sound of this book so much that I forgot I’d signed up for this tour and purchased to book when it came out this week.  Then when I started reading it to review it, I was so into it that I stayed up until 2 in the morning reading it.  On a night that I had to be at work at 8 in the morning.  Did I mention that I put off making a punch for a coworkers last day and cleaning the kitchen to read this book?




    So, to say I liked it would probably be a bit of an understatement!




    Rowen is a bit rough around the edges, but whatever you do, don’t call her a freak.  But the most amazing thing is that from day one, Jesse seems to see right through all the outer trappings and really gets her. The real her.  The really cool thing is that no one has EVER done that. At first Rowen doesn’t know what to make of that, but slowly she starts to let her guard down and its amazing what happens as that guard goes down, really really good things.




    Jesse is truly one of the good guys and the relationship that develops between him and Rowen is pretty special. I really liked this one and enjoyed this book a lot. It was a great read and a great story.

    ..........

    I am from the country. Born and raised on a farm. So maybe that is why i found this book so horribly bad. Like it was written by someone with no real insight into country life other than google and westerns.... Jesse comes off as the posterboy for hot cowboy but is also portrayed as so damn naive its annoying. Garth was obviously put in to shake things up but his appearance in the story seemed forced and pointless.

    Fantastic book!

    Lost and Found was a great read and is now one of my favorite books! Although it was a little cheesy at times, the characters are so deep and the message of this book is so positive! Nice feel-good book that always put me in a good mood.

    Ehhh

    This book was way too cheesey for me. The plot was sometimes unrelistic. It kind of made me mad at most parts. No wonder it was 4 dollars. It was sloppily wirrten aswell. Thumbs down for this dull summer read!

    Nicole Williams creates characters you want to know and stories that you can't read fast enough! I am happy to hear there is another book to continue this riveting love story. Can't wait for July!

    Nicole Williams does it again!

    I love all of Nicole's books and this one is no exception. This was originally a stand alone novel but after fans demanding to find out what happens next Nicole decided to carry on Jesse's & Rowan's story with another novel coming out later this summer! I can't wait to read to see what happens next!!!!

    Love!

    Once again, Nicole delivers an exceptional read! Thank you for creating characters that are captivating and a storyline that draws you in. I hope that this is just the beginning of Rowan and Jesse's story. I know that I would love to read more. And not just about them, but the entire Walker family. Even would like get to know, the very dark and brooding Garth a bit more. :)
