If we didn’t know darkness, we couldn’t fully appreciate the light.

Garth Black’s more familiar with this concept than most people are. He hadn’t just lived in the dark for the majority of his life—he thrived in it. With a mom who’d bailed on him and a dad whose understanding of coddling started and ended with a bottle of whiskey, Garth had never been expected to rise to any sort of occasion other than following down the same dead-end paths.

That changed when he fell in love with Josie Gibson. After years of pulling each other closer before shoving the other way, they finally stopped shoving. Josie’s love is like nothing Garth’s ever experienced. He holds it close. He holds it sacred. He would do anything to preserve it and keep it from pollution, even if that means removing himself from the picture.

Garth might have been allowed a temporary furlough to bask in the light, but that pass has been revoked, and he’s been swallowed again by the dark. Will he revert to his old ways of hurting those he cares for most? Will he go back to the same destructive patterns . . . or will it be worse this time?

We can’t know light without first knowing dark . . . and Garth Black’s about to get acquainted with the dark in a whole new way.

This book has left me with a loss of words.  I don't know where to start or how to accurately describe how I feel about it.  If it was up to me, I'd give this book 10 stars, or an infinite number.  Even then it wouldn't be enough.  I knew when I started it, Garth Black and Josie Gibson were going to experience some tough times, but I had no idea how tough.  I went from a moment of elation to moments of fear and pain for the both of them.  Hearing him tell this next chapter in his story could've only been enhanced if Josie got to share her experiences too. I really truly love Garth Black.  That man has not had it easy his entire life.  Just when he and I think he's golden, something happens that throws him back into the dark place he just recently came out of. This time it's not just him but Josie, her parents, even Jesse and Rowen who are all affected, and Garth is torn between pushing everyone away and pulling them closer. I completely understood his desire to push everyone away.  I even understood his reasoning why. When you love someone beyond reason, it often makes more sense to let them go, then see them suffer and miss out on what they could've had if they stay with you.  That doesn't mean I wanted him to succeed in pushing everyone away though.  I hated seeing Garth struggle with his reality.  Like Josie, I too was hoping for a miracle. I wanted Garth to fight with everything in his being instead of giving up so easily. The resolution of certain conflicts Garth had in Finders Keepers didn't happen, and I was really hoping they'd happen.  Instead, I understood he had larger problems at hand then a bunch of prissy no-good city boys who were trying to be country.  I still wouldn't have minded them getting a beat down.  And before you judge me for being blood thirsty and mean, read Finders Keepers and you'll understand my sentiments, if not agree with them.   Even with Garth and Josie facing some unprecedented challenges, I love how Josie NEVER gave up on Garth.  She loved and fought for him with everything in her.  I can't tell you how hard or fast my heart was beating come the climax of the book.  I'd stopped hoping for a miracle at that point and just started hoping things wouldn't get worse for the two of them.  Of course Nicole Williams pulled a twist or four that left me reeling. Thankfully there is a happy ending.    I'm sincerely hoping Heart & Soul isn't as draining on me emotionally as all of the books in this series have been.  Of course, who am I kidding?  It doesn't matter, because I'm going to read it anyway.  It was wonderful to see Jesse and Rowen again. Those two also have some major challenges coming their way.  I'm also hoping Nicole Williams decides to write stories featuring Jesse's sister. There was a certain revelation that had me raising my eyebrows.  Either way, I loved this book.  It made me ugly cry in public and I didn't even try to hide it.  Of course I didn't know I was crying until I realized I couldn't see the screen of my e-reader.  Nicole Williams has written another fabulous tale you won't be able to put down.  It's certainly one of my favorites.

Wow.  This book was hard on me.  It was emotional and tear causing.  It was "I'm gonna slap Garth into a batter heap" causing.  It was also right.  I have some personal struggles that come entirely too close to this and I cried.  At first, I wasn't sure I could read it.  But I had to.  The book was meant for me to read.  I flew threw it and I smiled at the end. I have loved this series from the start.  I love that there is more Jess coming after this one.  I love this Montana community and these characters.  They feel so real to me.  I want to hug them. This type of story could have been depressing but this one wasn't.  Between Garth and Rowan's sarcasm and the true love Josie has for Garth, I was so cheering them on.  I so wanted them to find that happy and to be content. If you've been reading along with this group of friends, don't miss this one.  If you haven't, make sure you give them a try because this is real New Adult.

I was as surprised as anyone when I fell head over heels in love with "bad boy" Garth Black during Finders Keepers. A fan of the series from the start, I didn't find much redeemable about Garth in the first two books. The third book, however, was a totally different story. I love when an author shows me a side to a character that I never expected to see. I loved Garth and Josie together and cheered them through all the tough times during Finders Keepers. Unfortunately, it turns out life isn't quite done kicking Garth around. There's still another challenge in store for him during Losers Weepers.  I was nervous when I first read the synopsis for this book. I was afraid to find out what happened to drag Garth back down into a dark place again. I didn't see what happened coming a mile away. (Ok, truthfully, I asked a friend who read it before me to spoil it for me so I could be prepared going in. But when she told me, I thought she was kidding. She wasn't.) The unexpected twist damn near broke my heart.  Losers Weepers is an emotional book. It wasn't an easy read. It was really tough to watch Garth and Josie go through what they did during this book. I thought they had found their happily ever after. To watch it get ripped away was downright painful. I want to be careful to avoid spoiling the book for you, which is difficult because so much of it takes place AFTER the thing that happens and it's the characters' reactions to it that made me simultaneously love the book and want to chuck it against the wall.  While I had to suspend beliefs during some parts of the book, the one place I never had to was in the actions of Garth and Josie. I think they way they each behaved – regardless how frustrating at times – was real and honest and perfect for their characters. Garth showed his maturity and selflessness. (Even though it made me want to scream sometimes.) Josie showed how much she loved him and how serious she was about him and the life they were building together. Together, they made me feel all the feels. ALL OF THEM. There were more than a few tears.  I didn't like to see life kicking these two characters around, but I ultimately ended up really enjoying the story. It was sad at times, but hopeful overall. Seeing Jesse and Rowan again was a great bonus. They both played an important part in Losers Weepers, helping Josie and Garth when they needed it most. I'm (more than) a little terrified to see what happens next for them. The blurb for Heart and Soul has me all kinds of freaking out. I need it now.  I received a copy of this book from the author in exchange for an honest review.

When we last saw Garth Black, he was finally with the one he loved.... But life for Garth is never easy.  Garth is finally living his dream... he's with Josie, has a ring to give her and is competing to head to Nationals... until tragedy strikes. My heart instantly broke for Garth, again. I had hoped that life for him would be a HEA with Josie, but life is too bumpy for that. Its hard to say too much without giving spoilers.  The book centers around how life can take a turn for the worse and how the people around you can be there for you, no matter the cost to themselves.  'It means you rise, I rise; you fall, I fall. You hurt, I hurt; you succeed, I succeed.' Garth starts to feel that he is not what is best for Josie again. 'We justify it because we want the best for them, and we realize we're not that.'  We get a peek into Jesse and Rowen and how life is for them.  'sometimes life needed to be laughed at instead of feared.'

4.5/5 stars I don't even know where to start with this review to be honest. Should I tell you my eyes were full of tears for a good majority of this one? Do I warn you of the emotional punch that it will deliver to you? Or do I tell you point blank how much I love and adore Garth Black and Josie Gibson? Let's start with the latter. Oh, those two. They made my heart SING in this book. I loved seeing them fall for one another in Finders Keepers and I was so happy to be back in their world. I don't want to reveal too much, as I think you really need to go in and experience this one and the events that play out completely blind. Something huge happens to Garth and Josie, something so unexpected that my mouth literally dropped open when it came. I was in utter shock and I was terrified of how Williams was going to resolve everything. Garth and Josie's world is completely upended and it's how they deal with the aftermath that will really tear you up. Williams does such a beautiful job with their story and even though my heart felt like it was shattering over and over, the unfailing love and devotion is what really made this one soar. I do think the story was a bit underdeveloped in some places and I couldn't help but want more. I felt there was a bit missing between a few major events toward the end that would have been better resolved had the in between been beefed up a bit more. I realize this is so vague and doesn't make sense, but Garth makes a really big decision and he doesn't play either. He is keen on following through, but then something happens that all of a sudden makes him realize he never should have doubted and that it's all going to be ok. I get his change of heart, but I feel there needed a bit more conversation between him and Josie in between that moment and the ending of the book. And maybe a sexy scene thrown in? ;) Regardless, this is minor to the overall plot. I loved that Williams gave us more to Garth and Josie's story and that she decided to continue it and end it the way she does. In addition, Rowen and Jesse make a really strong appearance in this book. This ends up playing a key role, as they are also getting one last book called Heart and Soul! I am excited for their last hurrah and also really nervous based on new information we discover in this one. I love Rowen's feistiness and how she calls Garth on his crap. It's definitely fun to watch those two banter! Losers Weepers is a little sexier than Finders Keepers was, but it wasn't overdone, so those who like their New Adult books on the lighter side, this series is a great one to read. I love Garth and Josie, their banter and their love and devotion to one another. Josie is absolutely a stand-out character in this one and her resilience and unwillingness to give up is what really made an impression on me. "Love wasn't simple. It didn't come naturally or instinctively or easily. It had to be earned and fought for and could drive a person to insanity just as quickly as it could drive them to greatness, but in the midst of all of that confusion, I knew one thing: I loved this woman. And she loved me."
