The Lost Fisherman
Jewel E. Ann
It’s been five years since I’ve seen him. An unexpected event takes me back to the place where it all began.
But I’m no longer the naive young woman he once knew. And he’s no longer the man who took nearly everything from me.
Can this be our time? Or is it too late? Did I find myself only to lose him?
~ My Thoughts ~
It’s rare that in a series a author can surprise me from one book to the next. Jewel E. Ann though, she did and it was wonderfully spectacular and devastating at the same time.
“I think love—the good kind—holds an equal mix of wonder and familiarity. That feeling like you know someone, yet you also know parts of them are still a mystery that you can’t wait to slowly discover. If there’s no wonder, I think the love can die. If there’s no familiarity, I think the love already feels dead. If I were the one marrying you, I would be bothered more than I am. But you chose her.”
The second book is written as well, if not better than book one. The characters remain true to themselves. The emotions hit you like a full on raging storm that just knocks you off your feet.
The author adds to the complexity of the storyline in the second book of this duet. Continuing her sparkling way of telling a story, the second book includes the highs, lows, laughs, sighs, temptation, sizzle and family drama. It also highlights reality versus what we want and believe to be true. The feeling of loss, compounded by the heartbreak of the past. The hopes, dreams and desires of the future and the willingness to open your heart and your mind to society’s quickly and ever evolving stance on social issues.
Did the author surprise me, oh hell yes. I truly wasn’t expecting to feel all I did. I wasn’t expecting to realize the pain, hurt and growth of every character. I honestly never anticipated harboring such strong feelings, good and bad. And, if we’re being honest the author had me second guessing how the story would end.
“I told her I’m engaged to a woman I’ve known nearly my whole life. But I’m in love with a woman I’ve known for a breath, maybe two.”
In pure and open honesty, I read this book due to the high praise it was receiving in a group on Facebook. Everyday more and more people would post about this fantastic age gap romance. Usually, I tend to move on quickly from a book that receives praise at such a rapid pace, never 100% trusting those doing the promoting. There was just something about the comments regarding this duet. Pure, honest and raw feelings written by readers, not reviewers. So I took a chance on the Fisherman Duet and let me tell you, I’m thrilled that I did.
“A true second-chance romance. Falling in love with the same person twice. Each time, feeling brand new. No memories of the first time. Just … something about that person that makes you fall in love with them. Every. Single. Time. “That chilling kind of love that maybe does last more than one lifetime. The truest definition of soul mates.
