Near and Far by Nicole Williams
There’s optimistic. And there’s Jesse Walker.
If he wasn’t so charming, his sunny disposition and incessant grin would get old. Fast.
Falling in love with the broken girl who had at first seemed immune to anything resembling love was the best thing to happen to Jesse since the Walkers adopted him when he was five.
As Jesse’s life continues at the ranch and Rowen begins making her mark in the Seattle art community, they wonder where the middle ground is. Or if there even is one.
As push comes to shove, they’re forced to make choices neither are eager to make, and Jesse and Rowen have to face what their lives might look like without the other.
Can two people with such tragic pasts and different presents expect a promising future together? Whatever the answer, they’ll need a lot more than love to make it.
My thoughts on this book: This book is the second in a series and it really finishes up Jesse and Rowen's story well but I certainly hope to see more of them. The first part the book is mostly uneventful and the only real problems are the long distance relationship. I did find myself losing interest in the story for a chapter or two but that quickly changed and you had to really worry about both of them. This was Jesse's story more then Rowen's and it was his time to make peace with his past. It was sad and beautiful at the same time. I loved the ending and so happy for these two.
