An Au Pair girl and a Football Star! I love unlikely romances so I was happy to give this one a go.
Anabel is somewhat lost and drifting after school so she agrees to a new opportunity to leave home and travel to America for a job. Will Price is a star athlete and determined to help his team win the Superbowl. He’s all in and ready to try for romance when he meets Anabel, but unfortunately, she’s skittish and confused so he has his work cut out for him.
Lost & Found is told first person so I had the opportunity to be caught up in both Bel’s and Will’s head. Gonna be honest here, Anabel tired me out. She was hot & cold, angsty beyond need and I wanted to give her a swift kick in the butt to just knock it off with the attitude. I honestly couldn’t see what had her so off-putting with Will. I get that there was an expiration date since she had to go back home to Croatia eventually, but seriously, she liked him and wanted to be with him so why act like Croatia is Pluto or that there’s no communication out to America?
But, the redeeming side of the story is Will for me. He’s got the hot athlete things in spades, but he’s not a jerk and is well grounded when it comes to his celebrity. He wants a real thing and he sees that in Bel even when she’s being frosty or sending mixed signals. I was really cheering him on to get his happiness.
The pair of them had some sizzle for sure. I liked that the author made Anabel a Croatian as a nice change and I enjoyed the cast of characters surrounding Bel and Will especially Sienna.
So, while Anabel drove me nuts until she finally decided to try with Will, I thought this a moderately engaging, sweet, and passionate romance that I can recommend to New Adult and sports romance fans in particular.
