Until You Find Me by Amber Hart
My rating: 5 of 5 stars
Summary from GoodReads
Raven Moore, a twenty-year-old college student from Michigan, feels out of place in the beautiful, treacherous jungles of Cameroon, staying in the habitat where her father gave his life to help protect endangered gorillas. He left home years ago; now Raven refuses to return home until she unravels the truth about his last days.
Raven certainly doesn’t count on crossing paths with a handsome young hunter—especially one as charismatic and intense as Jospin Tondjii. Instantly, she’s hooked. But Jospin is hiding a dark truth: He is the heir to a powerful poaching empire, part of a ruthless black market that is responsible for the dwindling gorilla population.
Their fathers may have been enemies, but Raven and Jospin forge a bond that goes beyond blood, a relationship that is tested as Raven draws closer to the source of her father’s death. Can she and Jospin bear the weight of the secrets of the wild—and the secrets of their pasts? Or will the rain forest destroy them both?
*Recieved and eARC from the publisher in exchange for an honest review*
Raven moves to Cameroon after her father's death. He used to help saving the gorillas but her grief and hatred doesn't allow her to see thebeauty of the endagered spieces. Everything changes when she meets Jospin, who harbors secrets of his own.
Firstly, I liked the fact that the author wrote the book about the gorillas; they are one of many endagered species and the plot surrounds this fact. The romance blooms between the characters, not the insta-kind but enough to have strong scenes. Also, the mystery thickens at the ending leaving enough spoilers for the next book.
Overall it's an enjoyable read with teachings about the value of life and nature.
