His life has been a constant carousel of tragedy and disappointment, including his love life. Of course, applying the term “love” to Garth’s conquests is a gross misuse of the word. Some people were made to give and accept love, and others weren’t. Garth Black redefines the “others” category. He’s made a vow that the day he meets a woman who could sucker him into falling in love will be the day he runs away.
Garth’s plan has one flaw. What happens when he’s already fallen hard for a girl before the warning signs and red flags go up? What happens when the love he’s avoided his entire life brings him to his knees? What happens when Garth Black lets the dirtiest four letter word he’s ever known into his dark, lonely life?
This cowboy’s about to find out he can control some things, and he can’t control others. Number one on the what he can’t control list?
Okay, first up I have to admit, I didn't read book two in this series yet. I have it ready and waiting but just was not able to squeeze it in before I started Finders Keepers. *sighs* Such is the life of a blogger with too many books and not enough hours. I don't believe this affected my ability to read this book and follow along since it is Garth and Josie's book, where as the previous ones were Rowan and Jesse's.
Now on to my review....
I loved getting to see a softer side of Garth. Again, I can only base my feelings off the first book, but he had the bad boy persona down to a tee. He had a chip on his shoulder the size of Texas and not to mention, he slept with his best friend's girl. But underneath all that bad boy facade, is an emotionally damaged cowboy. One who only wanted the love and acceptance of the only parent he had, but instead only got bloody noses and black eyes.
After spending the past 21 years learning to bury all that hurt and rejection in a bottle and easy women, Garth may have finally found his reason to change his ways.
And her name is Josie.
The development of their relationship was sweet. You get a glimpse at just how long Garth has seen Josie as more than just a friend. But he kept those feelings on the back burner for so long because she was Jesse's girl. And then even when she wasn't, he didn't feel he deserved someone like her. But he finally sees a chance to go after what he has wanted so long.
But can a tiger like Garth really change his stripes? Will Josie be willing to trust in him enough for them to make a go of it?
Well, you are just going to have to read Finders Keepers to find out. And believe me, you want to read Garth's story!
Side note. There were a few errors that stuck out in the book, such as with names being incorrect. And sample would be Clay Black, Garth's father, being referred to as Clay Walker. It happened just enough times for me to find annoying.
I'm the New York Times and USATODAY bestselling author of the CRASH series (HarperTeen, S&S UK), LOST & FOUND series, UP IN FLAMES (S&S UK), The EDEN TRILOGY, and a handful of others. I write stories about everyday kinds of people who find themselves in extraordinary kinds of situations. I tell love stories with happy endings because I believe in making the world a better place, and that's one tiny way I can make it so. I'm one of those people who still believe in true love and soul mates, and would rather keep my head in the clouds any day over having my feet firmly on the ground.
