‘Six Years Gone’ by Jessica Gouin, is a book with a bit of everything form teen angst, first love and second chance romance that you just can’t let slip you by again. This was a first by this author but a real treat to read, 4 stars.

This book is the first in a two part series. This one in particular focuses a round Sawyer and Lachlan and the second one will feature two other characters. This was a great book which encompasses different genres, so if you like young/new adult books, first loves or lost loves coming together for a second chance then this book is for you.

Struggling to cope in her small town where everyone knows her business and she puts on a front of being this badass girl that is bitchy and hard. On the inside she is crumbling under it all and uses drugs to get her through the day numbing her feelings and emotions. It is not until Lachlan comes into her life does it start to be bearable, even if they are keeping things a secret it doesn’t matter because he just makes her feel things she never thought she could or would.

Lachlan is a rich kid that sees something in Sawyer that everyone else doesn’t bother to notice. The harsh exterior is tactic to keep others away but unfortunately for Sawyer that only make Lachlan want to know her more. He sees that there is someone loving and caring who is hurting.

Just when things should be good and they plan to come clean with people Lachlan has to leave but he promises to return. Never did Sawyer think he would desert her for six years so you can understand her hostility. Of course there are reasons behind his absence, things beyond his control and secrets that will come out but its whether they will get the second chance or not that keeps you reading.

I really enjoyed this book and will be looking out for the next one. The other characters were great and you want to know more about them too. The book will have you frustrated at times because of circumstances and missed chances but that is why you read this type of book. Great read.

Author Bio

Jessica Gouin hates talking about Jessica Gouin. Especially in the third person. 

I’m a fairly normal person from Windsor, Ontario. I was born here, grew up here, met my hubs here, and had my children here. I really couldn’t imagine living anywhere else. 

More than anything, I love watching my children grow every day. They amuse the hell out of me. I swear they were sent to earth to provide my life with comedic relief. My babies (I say babies, but they’re 5 and 8, still and forever will be babies, am I right?), and my husband, are the reasons why I get up every morning and continue to fight the good fight. 

When I’m not enjoying my mommy-life, I’m writing. Writing is my stress reliever. I go a little mad when I’m not creating an escape path for the characters in my head. I love, love, love to read. I’m a reader first, always have been. I try to branch and read all types of genres, but I always seem to come back to those epic love stories. I’m a sucker for a great kiss. When I need breaks from the literary world, I have a few shows that I watch with the hubs; The Walking Dead, The Vampire Diaries, Chicago Fire, and Grey’s Anatomy are my favs. I love rain storms, a good laugh, strong coffee, sleep, and anything with chocolate. I hate mean people, the outdoors, heights.

I genuinely become ecstatic when I receive a like on my Facebook page, or when someone reaches out to say they liked my books. So, thank you for stalking me because I love it!
