"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:
This book touches on some very real life issues that are difficult for some to read about. I believe it is also hard to accurately depict but I was pleased with how this author came about with dealing with it. This book is a love story but it allowed us into the world of war and how it affects those who fight for our country's freedom on a daily basis. 

I loved this story from the beginning. We are allowed to see the characters before the events that made them who they are today. Before war changed Jake. It was a sweet story that was at times very gritty and also very sexy!! The author allows us to form attachments with all of the family so that we will want to read more about them. Which I do. I can not wait for more of Nate & Jules! Their story is going to rock my socks! 

An amazing book with lots of emotions. Must read!!
