Review| Now That I Found You – Brooke O’Brien

Last month I read and reviewed Until I Found You and fell in love with those characters. Now That I Found You was released this week (yesterday in fact) and I got to read and review this one as well! This is technically a novella you can read without reading all of the books, but I really do recommend reading the first book Where I Found You! My review for that was posted on the blog yesterday!

Title: Now That I Found You
Series: Heart’s Compass Series
Author: Brooke O’Brien
Genre: Romantic Suspense
Release Date: March 15, 2019


All I’ve ever wanted was a family…
For so long, I had been walking through my life alone. Loss and heartbreak taught me not to wish for something because the moment you do, it can all be ripped away from you.
The day I met Callum, everything began to change. Falling in love with him and becoming his wife, I finally started to picture a future I never thought I would have.
Life has a way of testing me. My life is about to change in ways I never expected. 
… now one man threatens to take it all away from me again.

I finished reading Where I Found You recently and was really happy that I had a chance to read more about these two not too long after that. Ellie and Callum are two characters who really find a place in your heart after the first book. Getting to enjoy them a little longer isn’t something I’ll ever complain about.

Novellas can be a hit or miss though. They’re pretty short, so I’ve had many times where I felt like there was a lot of story missing or that it was rushed. That wasn’t the case with Now That I Found You! This story picks up some months after the ending of Where I Found You.

Ellie and Callum have been through a lot in their relationship, but it seems like things are finally looking up for them. I love the two of them together and things can definitely get pretty steamy! Ellie had a heartbreaking childhood, so it’s nice to see her get some happiness.

It’s clear the events from Where I Found You still have an impact, but Ellie is learning to deal. When a day at work turns Ellie’s world upside down, we’re not sure if she will get her happily ever after. I have to say that Brooke is really good at making you feel all the tension and suspense surrounding these events. I couldn’t put this novella down.

I don’t want to give too much away, because this novella isn’t really long. If you’re a fan of characters who just fit together, romance, humor, steamy moments, great friends and some suspense, Now That I Found You is definitely the book for you! This author really knows how to pull on your heart strings!

“This story is a fantastic addition to the series. It had me feeling all the feels, as usual when reading a Brooke O’Brien story. I couldn’t be happier with how this novella turned out.
