✯Blog tour w/review✯ "True North" by Allie Juliette Mousseau

Author: Allie Juliette Mousseau

Release Date: March 17, 2014

Summary from Goodreads: "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...

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's 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.


5 Stars!!!!
Eeekkk! I LOVE Jake North! Is it possible to fangirl over a fictional character? Well, if it is, I am seriously doing so right now! He is so damn close to perfect it hurts. Hot sexy military man covered in tattoos. YUMMY!

Livie has been in love with Jake (Her best friends brother) since she was a little girl, but those feelings were never touched throughout the years since he was a few years older than her, and also her brother Nate's best friend. When she was 15, Jake left for the military. The night before he was to leave, things between them changed. 

"I will see you again. I will kiss you again," he promised, and I noticed his eyes got watery just before he shut the door.

Four years later Jake returns to town. Four years since Livie last saw him; 3 since she last heard from him. With the chemistry at an all time high, can things between them pick up where they left off? One thing is for sure, they have one hell of a bumpy ride. Jake is not the same happy go lucky guy he was before he left. He has returned back with some deep rooted emotional scars which has you praying that he will be able to overcome the past few years and find his way back to the person he once was. The story of Livie and Jake is one which every little girl dreams of having for themselves. 

"Jake, I know you, the guy you are, who you were, and the man you want to be. I'm not afraid of you or that scar."

Allie Juliette Mousseau did an exceptional job of portraying the emotions and fears of those suffering from PTSD. I cannot even begin to imagine what someone in the military must go through on a daily basis, let alone when they are at war. When I was finished reading the book, I almost felt as if I knew the characters in real life. They were completely down to earth and very lovable, and extremely easy to relate to on many levels. One of my favorite things in the story was how Jake used music to convey what he wanted to say and express emotionally to Livie. I am big into music, and every time a song was mentioned I was hearing it play out in my head as I read the scenes. There is only one word to describe Allie's writing and this story and that is BRILLIANT!

I will be sitting here anxiously awaiting the day when I am able to read the next book. I am dying to know what will come of Jules and Nate! Please please PLEASE tell me they will FINALLY get together! ARGH!!!!!!
