Overview

Emi Lost & Found series - Winner of the Best Happily Ever After of 2013 - HEA Bookshelf

“Intense doesn't begin to cover it. I cried. I sobbed. I bawled. A lot. Constantly. Take my word when I say that you and Emi will become one. I felt every emotion as if I was in the story. I could have been Emi.” - Kelli, Alphas, Authors and Books Oh My

Emi Hennigan could never have predicted her life would be like this. After wasting more than ten years being “just a friend” to her true love, Nate Wilson, Emi feels more than a little regret. Her future was set, though. Nate loved her as much as she loved him, and they were moving forward with a romance that took them both by surprise. They already knew their bad habits, quirks and the subtle nuances of expressions, but the love was all-encompassing and new to them both.

No man could compete, Emi thought, until one night – one evening, one party, one journey, one second alters her course completely.

That night, her brother’s confident best friend, Jack Holland, comes back into her life with a mission: to spend more time with Emi to prove he is the right man for her. A romance with him is the furthest thing from Emi’s mind, though, staying loyal and steadfast to a trusted man that she will always love.

In a year’s time, though, Emi must learn to make changes she’d never before considered after being impacted by unexpected events. While her fragile spirit takes time to heal, Jack slowly finds a comfortable place in her life. Only time will tell if it’s right for Emi – and enough for him.

Meet the Author

After an exhilarating, collaborative writing project, Lori L. Otto had an idea for an original novel. The characters and their rich stories would keep her awake at night, and even with barely any sleep, she felt more alert and alive than she had in years. Her days off were spent in cafés, sandwich shops and bookstores, feverishly trying to get all of the details out of her head and onto paper.

    Ok what a heart wrenching story. I cried and cried some more. Even though very sad I was still drawn in by the story, characters and Emi! Great follow up to book 1. Looking like my favorite series of 2012!

    Long

    The books in this trilogy are a little too long. It has a good story base but the author needs to figure out how to develope her characters and their lives without so much explanation and tiring conversations. You almost get the impression that she wants to include every fantasy she has ever had in her books. Be prepared to skip thru a lot of irrelevent pages to finish this series.

    At the end of the first book, my heart kind of stopped knowing something bad would happen. This book, wow, forget emotional roller coaster, I think I used a box of tissues and looked puffy eyed for a day or two but I read on and on and couldn't wait to get through it. Lori writes amazingly emotionally charged books that if there was a dry eye reading, I would say something might be wrong with the reader. Book 3 is a must read after this.

    This is the second in the Lost and Found trilogy about Emi and her journey toward finding her true love. In the aftermath of a horrific accident, Emi struggles to continue on despite he fact that her life is changed forever. You really feel that her loss is your loss, her struggles are yours. She is surrounded by those who wish to help her out of the darkness that hovers over her, but she must climb out of it on her own. During her journey of healing she discovers that it is OK to move on but not without the fear that she is leaving behind something she is not willing to part with forever. This book will challenge your emotional limits but you will be rewarded in the end! This book is unlike any other I have read and will leave you wanting more....of the characters, the story and yes those pesky downright heart wrenching emotion! One word of advice- tissues and lots of them for the beginning!

    Excellent series

    Be prepared to laugh, cry, and sometimes get a little hot and bothered. The author does get a little long winded with the details.

    Reviews for the prequel and first book can be found on my blog.

    Reviews for the prequel and first book can be found on my blog. Please note, this review contains spoilers. DO NOT read this review unless you want the series (not just this book) spoiled or you’ve already read it! You’ve been warned.

    Whenever I started this book, I was both eager to continue on with Emi and Nate’s story and worried because of the cliffhanger at the end of the first book. By the time I had finished the first chapter, I was absolutely heartbroken and wasn’t sure if I wanted to continue. How am I supposed to let go of everything Emi and Nate worked so hard for? Their time together wasn’t long enough. How can this book possibly continue on without Nate? Still, I continued reading.

    I spent the first few chapters in tears. Like, nonstop tears were streaming down my face. I was absolutely heartbroken that Nate was gone. How unfair for their love story to end before it was able to truly begin. By the end of the book (a little over a year), Emi was ready to move on and commit to Jack. While happy-ish for Emi (Jack hasn’t lived up to Nate in my eyes and I’m unsure whether or not he will by the end of the series), I was still mourning Nate. His love for her was so pure and true that it’s hard to picture her with anyone else, even though Nate is gone. Since the first book was from Nate’s perspective, I feel like it’s going to be harder for me to let their romance fade away than if it had been if the book had been told from Emi’s perspective.

    Much like the previous book, I had mixed feelings for Emi. In the beginning, I was with her all the way. I empathized with her over losing not only her soulmate, but her best friend. Of course, I wanted her to heal. I wanted her to move on and live her life. It would be cruel to want anything other than the best for Emi. I understand that. However, much like Chris, I am worried that Emi moved on and gave her heart to Jack far too soon. I’m keeping an open mind, though. I know that everyone grieves and heals differently. Perhaps it’s not too soon for Emi and Jack to live happily ever after. I wish happiness and love for Emi and Jack, but I will be greatly disappointed if Emi trivializes her love/relationship with Nate (which, on occasion, I felt like she did).

    It's nearly impossible to write a review for this book without s

    It's nearly impossible to write a review for this book without spoilers, so I'm going to write two reviews: A non-spoiler review and a spoiler review.

    My non-spoiler review:
    I'm going to come right out and say it. Book one gutted me, but I loved that it did. My own personal type of book crack are books that make me have insanely strong emotions and almost give me an anxiety attack. Twisted, I know. I think it's amazing that twenty-six letters jumbled into words, then formed into sentences can make me so happy, sad, and so incredibly angry in a span of a few hundred pages.

    One of the best things about series books is seeing how the characters change throughout each book. I didn't know how I was going to move on after book one. I had no idea how the characters were going to move on from what happened. But they did. They moved on and it was beautiful to see the character development and evolution play out on the page. I was amazed at Emi's strength throughout this book. Emi's stages of emotion from the beginning to end was very well done. Bravo, Lori Otto. I felt every emotion Emi went through, it was raw, realistic and extremely touching.

    I heard that several readers quit the series after reading the first book, but I would urge you to move on. Read the rest of the series. Read the prologue. Experience these characters and this story. This series deserves your time. I am so glad I took the plunge. Reading this series has been a highlight in my reading this year.


    My Spoiler-ridden review: STOP READING IF YOU HAVEN'T READ THE SERIES!

    After reading the last sentence of book one I thought, (view spoiler)I was too busy trying to sort out exactly what I was feeling. I was so sad I couldn't even cry. And yes, I was so very, very angry.

    I loved every second of it.

    Remember how I said I liked emotional book? This was exactly what I loved and craved. Otto turned the characters' world upside down and ripped it to shreds and in the process of doing so, she broke my heart.

    Time Stands Still opens with the biggest GOTCHA ever. I had the biggest smile on my face. I was even tweeting about my elation. Open the champagne, people. Let's celebrate! HOORAY!

    And then Otto pulled the rug out from under me and took away my rainbows. It was all a dream. There was no celebration. Go home everyone and give me all the booze. I need to drink myself into a coma.

    Emi wakes up to find herself in a hospital room. Emi family has to break the news to her about Nate, her fiance and best friend. What follows is one of the most realistic portrayals of grief and despair I have ever read. Otto did a brilliant job at portraying the emotions of a woman in complete shock and denial. Despite being told repeatedly, Emi continues to believe that Nate is still alive. Her mind hasn't caught up with reality. I was so heartbroken for both of Emi's losses.

    Emi and Nate's family and friends band together to help her cope. I was so touched to see the outpouring of love for her. I could feel how much everyone cared for her and Nate. After she is released from the hospital, she moves in with her brother, Chris. He tries to make the environment comforting for her but all Emi feels is numb.

    Emi's mother brought things from her apartment to make Chris's apartment seem more like home, but what was most noticeably missing were reminders of Nate.

    For some reason, this really got to me. The love of her life and best friend had just died. She didn't get to get to go to the funeral because she was hurt and she has nothing around her to hold on to. Anna, Chris's fiancee, saves the day and brings Nate's tie to Emi. This is where the water works began for me. I could picture this whole scene in my head. Listening to Anna empathize with Emi and tell her that if the tables were turned she would want something around that reminded her of Chris made me SOB!

    Let's talk about Jack. We met Jack in book one technically at the college party from Emi's college days, but most notably he was at Chris and Anna's engagement party. His little eyebrow raise towards Nate made me not like him. Whatever animosity I felt towards him melted away in Time Stands Still. He was Emi's savior and rescuer. He was her foundation. I fell in love fast with Jack.

    Jack's selflessness and thoughtfulness shone so bright in this book. He was persistent without being pushy. Loving without being intrusive or insensitive. He was Emi's friend during a time when she needed him the most, which then turned into something more. Jack wanted to take things slow with Emi, so they agreed to just hang out together with no expectations and no romance.

    For me, the reader, coming to terms with Nate's death was very difficult. Having read the Not Today, But Someday first, I got almost two novels of Nate's point-of-view and seeing Emi and Nate together. It was jarring to me to have him ripped from me so suddenly. But I think that only added to the emotional impact.
