I don't even know where to start with this review to be honest. Should I tell you my eyes were full of tears for a good majority of this one? Do I warn you of the emotional punch that it will deliver to you? Or do I tell you point blank how much I love and adore Garth Black and Josie Gibson?
Let's start with the latter. Oh, those two. They made my heart SING in this book. I loved seeing them fall for one another in Finders Keepers and I was so happy to be back in their world. I don't want to reveal too much, as I think you really need to go in and experience this one and the events that play out completely blind. Something huge happens to Garth and Josie, something so unexpected that my mouth literally dropped open when it came. I was in utter shock and I was terrified of how Williams was going to resolve everything. Garth and Josie's world is completely upended and it's how they deal with the aftermath that will really tear you up. Williams does such a beautiful job with their story and even though my heart felt like it was shattering over and over, the unfailing love and devotion is what really made this one soar.
I do think the story was a bit underdeveloped in some places and I couldn't help but want more. I felt there was a bit missing between a few major events toward the end that would have been better resolved had the in between been beefed up a bit more. I realize this is so vague and doesn't make sense, but Garth makes a really big decision and he doesn't play either. He is keen on following through, but then something happens that all of a sudden makes him realize he never should have doubted and that it's all going to be ok. I get his change of heart, but I feel there needed a bit more conversation between him and Josie in between that moment and the ending of the book. And maybe a sexy scene thrown in? ;) Regardless, this is minor to the overall plot. I loved that Williams gave us more to Garth and Josie's story and that she decided to continue it and end it the way she does.
In addition, Rowen and Jesse make a really strong appearance in this book. This ends up playing a key role, as they are also getting one last book called Heart and Soul! I am excited for their last hurrah and also really nervous based on new information we discover in this one. I love Rowen's feistiness and how she calls Garth on his crap. It's definitely fun to watch those two banter!
Losers Weepers is a little sexier than Finders Keepers was, but it wasn't overdone, so those who like their New Adult books on the lighter side, this series is a great one to read. I love Garth and Josie, their banter and their love and devotion to one another. Josie is absolutely a stand-out character in this one and her resilience and unwillingness to give up is what really made an impression on me.
"Love wasn't simple. It didn't come naturally or instinctively or easily. It had to be earned and fought for and could drive a person to insanity just as quickly as it could drive them to greatness, but in the midst of all of that confusion, I knew one thing: I loved this woman. And she loved me."
I’m the New York Times and USA TODAY 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.
