There’s optimistic. And there’s Jesse Walker.
If he wasn’t so charming, his sunny disposition and incessant grin would get old. Fast.
Falling in love with the girl who had at first seemed immune to it, was the best thing to happen to Jesse since the Walkers adopted him into their family when he was five. But loving the girl who has her fair share of secrets is about as easy as that same girl loving the boy who seems to have none.
As Jesse’s life continues at the ranch, and Rowen begins making her mark in the Seattle art community, they begin to wonder where the middle ground is. Or if there even is one.
As push comes to shove and choices aren’t only needing to be made, but forced to be made, Jesse and Rowen have to face what their lives might look like without the other.
Can two people with such tragic pasts and different presents, go on to expect a promising future? Whatever the answer, they’ll need a lot more than love to make it.
Near & Far was a great read! I liked it much better than the first book. The Lost & Found felt like it had every imaginable inspirational quote added into it. N&F just seems more realistic, painful, and angsty. The angst was almost palpable, especially Jesse's side of the story. I liked that Jesse wasn't the golden boy in this book, too! The two struggle to maintain their relationship along with their personal lives. When a surprise from the past shows up, it may just unravel the thin thread that has kept them together!
The swoonworthy factor of this book was not as high as the first, which makes me a bit sad, but it was balanced out with a well placed cocky cowboy. I am a sucker for the bad boys, and I loved Garth Black's part in this story.. I can't wait to see if he will have a story! It'll have to be one tough girl to wrangle that cowboy in!
I love the cover to this book, it is darker than the first and suits the feeling of the book! The story seemed short, because the plot was faster paced. I am a big fan of Nichole's writing, especially her Duel First Person POVs. Overall, it's a one sitting, angsty read, that I'd happily recommend!

I’m the New York Times and USATODAY bestselling author of the LOST & FOUND series, the CRASH series, and a handful of others. Basically, I get to do what I love. Every single day. I write romance because I’m a sucker for a good love story, and I write happy endings because there are too few of them in real life.
