[canadian literature Books] Kindle ePUB Until You Find Me By Amber Hart
Nd drama Instead you are dropped into an African rainforest and introduced to all inds of danger and suspense Of course there is still an opposites attract theme and a sexy leading man but it is so much bigger than two people hooking upRaven goes to the jungles of Cameroon to the habitat that her father devoted his life to saving gorillas She harbours a lot of resentment to the place that she feels stole her father from her and doesn t understand why he wanted her there He is dead and can t give her the answers but she is determined to find out Shortly after arriving she is attacked by the very animal that her father was determined to save and her resentment grows While recovering she meets Jospin and there is an instant attraction He is a native of the jungle and unbenounced to her the heir of a dangerous and powerful poaching clan that Agewise kills the gorillas that her father died trying to saveI loved the setting of this book and enjoyed getting tonow the characters The story is told from both Raven and Jospin s point of view which I really liked Hart s writing style flows nicely which made the pages fly by and I was able to finish it in a few short hours With the mystery suspense jungle gorilla s and the steamy romantic aspect I was glued to the pages I do have to warn you that there is a HUGE cliffhanger at the end that made me want to throw my tablet across the room I may have even muttered a few explicit words I want to now what happens next I need to now what happens next As far as I can tell from my frantic search the seuel is still untitled and expected out sometime in 2015 I can t wait to find out how the story will play outI thoroughly enjoyed Raven and Jospin s journey and I think I have found myself a new author to follow I am sure that fans of new adult will enjoy this story that digs a little deeper than what is typical of the genre LIVE 45 Beautiful StarsRaven s dad has spent most of her life in Cameroon working to rehabilitate apes after

Leahcim steals it from me after I ve taken a bite A smile plays on my lips He s hungry all right He s is just stubborn than anyone I ve every Anthropology as Cultural Critique known It s not that he doesn t want to eat It s that he doesn t wan to eat on their terms While Raven continues to grow so does her relationship with Jospin Jospin is hiding things and it is obvious but she gives him his

don t Anyone know how to deal with that possibility I want you tonow that I ve never asked anyone to be mine and maybe that s not saying a lot to you but in my world it s everything I wasn t sure if this one would be a winner when I started it but I was pleasantly surprised I sat down and read this in one sitting it is told in dual pov It is a uick read with so much heart I loved seeing the development of both characters while struggling with their familiespast This one does have an open ending but the cliffy isn t horrible I highly recommend this one ARC indly provided by NetGalley in exchange for an honest review Going through my Kindle I have been trying to clear the old ebooks off it and I came across Amber Hart s Until You Find Me I remember reading her Before After series and really enjoying it Until You Find Me takes us into the African Jungle as Raven s father has died supposedly by the Full review at GenGen s Book Blog I received an eARC in exchange for my honest reviewI found a new love gorillas This story isn t only about finding love in a jungle It also includes how gorillas interact with humans and what they are capable of doing and I really enjoyed reading those scenesRaven travels to Africa to find answers about what had happened to her dad She lives in the habitat where dad worked and one day in the jungle she meets Jospin and he offers to show her how to throw nives They create a friendship but they Boggs know they have feelings for one another very forbidden feelings because Jospin is a poacher someone whoills gorillas and sells the gorilla meat and Raven is g When I discovered that Until You Find Me would be set in Africa I was thrilled because most of us are always on the look out for diversity in books Then the cover came out and I Battleground Chicago knew I was going to read it because it had an interracial couple in it While I enjoyed Until You Find Me overall there were some elements that I wish had been developed For one the characters We do get tonow the two main characters in the book uite a bit but part of me wanted I wanted to be able to form a emotional connection with them which never really happened I never understood their motivations which ended up hindering my enjoyment of the book Secondly the romance Because of my inability to connect with the characters I was also unable to connect with the romance in any way It was a little too fast for my liking felt a little too lusty and the secret eeping on Jospin s side was a little infuriating It s one of those things I have a hard time tolerating in books What I did love in the book was the implementation of the gorillas I actually loved the gorilla scenes than the romance and part of me felt like the gorillas needed spotlight on them I would honestly have loved to have scenes between Raven and this one specific gorilla because they were very emotional However that part of the plot got rather drowned by the romance were very emotional However that part of the plot got rather drowned by the romance book also ended in a
cliffhanger it wasn t horrible but i felt It wasn t horrible but I felt whatever the author wants to explore in the next book could have been done through this book especially because it s short Nevertheless Amber Hart has a very intense writing style that grips you from the very start and I ll most definitely be reading the next book. Less black market that is responsible for the dwindling gorilla population Their fathers may have been enemies but Raven and Jospin forge a bond that goes beyond blood a relationship that is tested as Raven draws closer to the source of her father’s death Can she and Jospin bear the weight of the secrets of the wild and the secrets of their pasts Or will the rain forest destroy them bo.

characters in this story I actually felt like I was in the African jungle and experiencing and feeling the same things Raven and Jospin were Please take note that poaching of apes and other wild animals is in fact happening and you will feel an intense anger and sadness when reading this story Until You Find Me was beautifully and remarkable written It was refreshing and interesting and held me captive from start to finish Raven travels to Africa after her father s death She goes there in search of answers What was it that happened to her father She is angry and hurt that her father spent

then I saw how beautiful you were Are You took a piece of me then beyond just my weapon I wasn t sure where the author was going to go with this story but as I read on it only got interesting We see Raven s character grow throughout the story She develops relationships with the apes one in particular Leahcim When the truth behind Raven s father s death is revealed it is than Jospin and Raven can handle Raven and Jospin are both left to deal with the betrayal and dangers of the jungle Can Raven survive the truth about her father s death Will Jospin and Raven s love be able to withstand the

excitement the self discovery between Jospin and Raven I loved the relationship between them and how their relationship progressed over time I can t wait for the next book to come out I want to see
What Other Dangers Theother dangers the of Cameroon hill hold This was an incredibly grown up NEW ADULT book I have read uite a few NA books lately that have just made me feel old with the way the characters talk and act UNTIL YOU FIND ME is unbelievably mature and intelligent I m not sure what I was expecting but I was pleasantly surprised with what I foundRaven finds herself in the jungles of Africa searching for answers as to why her father literally gave his life
FOR THE GORILLAS WHO TOOK IT FROM HIM RAVENthe gorillas who took it from him Raven only in Africa a few days when she is viciously attacked by a Silver Back one of the largest and meanest gorillas in the area Determined not to give up her life to the jungle that took her father from her Raven begins looking for help and answers to what went wrongJospin is a poacher and heir to the largest poaching empire around From afar he witnesses the gorilla attack on Raven A few weeks later when she returns to the jungle Jospin can t resist approaching her Although he doesn t divulge his identity and secrets Jospin begins helping and trusting RavenThe jungle holds many dangers the least of which is the animals Jospin s father is a ruthless man who will gladly murder rather than let someone stand in the way his making money Rival poachers have been seen in the area causing trouble and stealing some of the animals
That Should Belong To Jospin And His FatherFor Raven Theshould belong to Jospin and his fatherFor Raven the danger is losing her heart to a boy who is everything her father stood againstSo why didn t it get 5 stars Well it was written in first person present tense and it is just not my personal preference It became confusing when Raven would have flashbacks and they were still in the present tenseUNTIL YOU FIND ME has the heat of a New Adult novel and includes the thrill of mystery and danger It is thought provoking and I highly enjoyed it 4 I am a collection of broken pieces StarsI absolutely loved this book if you are looking for uniue characters in an unusual setting with a writing style that borders on lyrical then you are really going to enjoy Until You Find Me.
