Book friends, are you ready for your next FAVORITE read of 2021?!?! If you thought The Naked Fisherman was great then you have no idea the brilliance on the way with The Lost Fisherman. PURE LITERARY MAGNIFICENCE!! Gosh Y’all! I get emotional just thinking about this duet. I legitimately have read The Naked Fisherman twice. The Lost Fisherman I have read three times already. I was pacing around waiting for it to hit my kindle and when it did I immediately disappeared to my quiet spot. Trust me when I tell you the conclusion to Reese and Fisher’s journey… It.Did.Not.Disappoint!!
The journey this book will take you on is so emotionally raw and beautiful and special and exciting and worrying. It’s every emotion under the sun. The characters are so different from who they were in the first book. From the first chapter that had my heart in my throat I knew I was in for a ride of emotions. This was carried out throughout the entire book. Lines tested, boundaries questioned! How far would you go, what sacrifices would you make for the one you love most?!
Reese is the most amazing person and more than I could have even pictured that she would become. The amount she matures is so astounding. But Fisher is so different too. I loved the journey of discovering who this new Fisher of today is. Learning about his strength and struggles and seeing some lesser confident sides to him this time around.
I refuse to give any details about this book away because you NEED to go in blind to fully appreciate the situations this book will throw at you. I will say in closing that this was one of my favorite diets I have ever read. I fell so instantly in love with these characters and this second book, their changes only made me fall deeper in love with them. Almost like falling in love with them all over again. Grab this phenomenal duet today!! 🥰🔥♥️🥰🔥♥️ Truly I would give it 10 Stars ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ if I could.
