Book Review: Found in You

Found in You (Lost and Found Series, #1)
by K.L. Ruse

Twenty-three-year-old Camryn Singer never imagined that she would return to the place where she lost everything. To grant a dying wish, she moves back to the small Jersey beach town where she grew up, hoping to somehow find the missing pieces of her life. Determined to keep her wounds unopened and her heart guarded, she instead slams head-first into Cole Stevens.

Sexy surfer Cole has always used the waves to numb the pain of his past. But when he runs into Camryn on the beach one day, he wants nothing more than for her to heal his scars and light the spark back in his life.

Will Camryn and Cole be ripped apart when the ghosts from their pasts come back to life, or will they discover that it’s not until you’re lost, that you can be found?

TeriLyn's thoughts: **ARC generously provided by publisher via Netgalley in exchange for and honest review**

Found in You is a whirlwind romance. There are a lot of different subplots happening within this story and it times it was a bit chaotic for me. I found the writing to be a bit choppy at times and I'm not sure whether it's personal preference or the speed at which the story was flowing. Many things different things were happening without any real depth given to any of those different plots. I liked the setting and the basis of the story which is about a young mother who returns to the place where she grew up to face the truth about the hurt of her past. She does this as a last request to her mother whom has passed from cancer. One thing that I particularly liked about Found in You was the delicacy in which the author handled the death of a parent from cancer. It was truly unique how Ruse weaved Camryn's mother into the story through the notes and other things she left behind to guide Camryn through troubled times. I felt like I was in Camryn's head too much. There wasn't much space for descriptive narrative and depth. Her emotions branded most the book and with the back and forth nature of those feelings I felt conflicted on her. Cole is somewhat of a soft hero for my liking. There were times when I was looking for something huge to come from him and I didn't get it. Both of the pasts were interesting plots of the book they were under developed, in my opinion. I enjoyed all the secondary characters as well especially Gavin, Camryn's five year old surfing son. This book is easy to get through I think due to the fast pace of the story. And while I didn't not like it, it just didn't wow me.
