Read:: Far From Home (Home #2) by Megan Nugen Isbell

So we pick up about 6 months later in this book. Riley is back in Carver, she has realized that Jesse is not only her best friend but the one she should be with. She is trying to finish school and be with her friends.

Riley and Jesse will be going to college together, which they are excited about, they do not want to be apart. One evening when they are alone, no parents, able to spend time together, there is a knock on the door that will forever change them. Riley being 18 doesn't know what to do or how to handle the news. Megan does an outstanding job conveying Jesse's emotions even though we do not get his point of view during this book. You feel for his loss, you feel for his hurt, and you feel the pull that is happening between Riley and Jesse.

They only get a few months together when Jesse leaves. He leaves and Riley doesn't know what to do to get him back. I felt every emotion. Megan took you there, she did an excellent job going through every emotion. These two are lost and need to find themselves separately. When this book ended I just stared at it, waiting for Jesse to come back and say 'gotcha ya'. I couldn't wait to move to the next book. 

When Riley Regas moved from Boston to the small town of Carver, Kansas, she never expected the turn her life would take. She never thought she could be happy in Carver, especially after the betrayal she endured at the hands of someone she thought she loved. She was wrong. 

It’s been six months since everything changed. Six months since Jesse stepped in and saved her. Six months since she realized she’d been in love with Jesse all along. Six months of happiness and Riley can’t wait to take the next step in her life with Jesse at her side.

But one night changes everything and the life she envisioned with Jesse is turned upside down. Jesse has always been there for Riley, and now it’s her turn to be there for him. Will the love they fought so hard to find be strong enough to see them through this or will it ultimately tear them apart?
