Choosing to read this was one of the best decisions I've ever made.
Emi Lost & Found is a beautifully written, powerful, and  unforgettable  love story that made me feel every possible emotion.

This is a story that will stay in my heart forever.

This series took over my life. I've now been through three sleepless nights staying up til the wee hours of the morning to read 'just one more chapter'. I've cried almost harder than I've ever cried over a book

If you are even remotely interested in this series, then read this overview and ignore my individual reviews of each book.

For the past 6 days, I've been in a trance. Basically I was just so fully immersed in the Emi Lost and Found world I lost touch with reality.

So... where to start?



Here we go.

These books are not going to be for everyone. These books are for people who like to read in much the same way a seven course meal is for people who like to eat. If you want a pop-tart then you need to skip this series. This is serious business. For real, people!

1. Set your expectations: I didn't read any reviews before starting this series and, honestly, I wish I had. I went into this expecting a romance novel and all the cotton candy that is now associate

I read this book because it was supposed to be atypical, emotional, and life changing. I'm not that typical romance girl. My faves include Vain, Sea of Tranquility, and sempre #2. These are all emotional books with great supporting characters. A lot of reviews stated if you want a typical romance don't read this, that's why I read it. You know what I got? A typical romance with immature and forgettable characters.

First off the prequel was written wonderfully. I was pulled in from the beginning.
5 stars!

Emi Lost & Found is an experience, a journey. This beautifully written series is full of heartbreak, healing, and love. You will cry an ocean of tears, but feel so happy and fulfilled when it’s all over. This is the type of book that will stay with you for a long time, maybe forever. It will consume you. You will feel like you are a part of these characters lives, living their experiences with them.

If you haven't already read this series then I would totally recommend you put whatever you're reading down now and start reading this..! Like now!! Whatcha waiting for go NOW!!

I was thinking about writing a review for each book but then I figured a bulk one would work too so here it is...and I promise that I'll try not to spoil the entire series so here goes.

This is the Lost & Found Series by Lori L Otto.

I believe there are soul mates and there are true loves. I believe this is true for every person on this earth, that awe each have these in two separate persons. The feelings and emotions are the same but different, on different levels but on the same plane.

Most of the books lately are all about insta-love. These are not by any means. Lori Otto takes you on a journey of friendship, family, love, regret, loss, healing...just so many emotions enfolded into a beautiful story. You simply cannot read

I laughed, I cried, I experienced every emotion possible with this series, and I do not regret it.

This series is truly amazing, my absolute favorite of the year. I had to mentally prepare myself in order to meet and devote my time to these characters.

First, Nate. I loved everything about him. He was artistic and passionate and the most lovable screw-up I have had the pleasure of reading about. His impulsive nature just drew me in, and I couldn't get enough. He also managed to break my heart an

I wanted so much to like this book, having read all the glowing reviews about it.

Lost & Found started out okay for me, although I found it a bit slow. By Book 2 (Time Stands Still), I found it excruciating to read. Not in the sense that it was extremely sad, but that I found Emi so very unlikeable. I just couldn't relate to her at all. Like I read in someone else's review, I felt like I was on the outside looking in, and I could not sympathize with Emi at all. She seemed to bounce from grie

I had a permanent case of swollen eyes and tension head ache while reading this series. Seriously. Never in my life had a book caused me to feel SO MANY EMOTIONS at the same time. To say this was one hell of a rollercoaster, wouldn't even begin to cover it.

It all comes back to Book Bash. I've never been so excited to attend an event in my life. There were so many great authors appearing; most of them I had read their work or heard of them. I had a blast meeting and chatting with a good number of them and thought I had met all that I cared about. At the time, I was correct. My biggest regret is not discovering the Emi Lost and Found series before my Florida trip.
Through many contests and friends who like author pages, I had managed to like Lori Ott

Wow. Just wow. To be honest, I have so many things I want to say about these books that I am finding it hard to put it into words. These were some of the best books I have read, to date. They touched on every human emotion possible and at times I had to put the book down because I was so consumed with emotions.

I will admit that I had the Ugly Cry. Actually, this even goes beyond the Ugly Cry, if you can imagine that!!!! Parts of the books, I had a huge lump in my throat and others I was cheerin

You need to read this. I'm still a sniffling, crying mess, one second from total melt down but this book was everything. Emi was certainly not perfect but this book series was absolutely perfect. Each of the three books was written to perfection and each being a different pov was absolutely the best way to write this s

I love these books and I highly recommend them. <3

Lori does an amazing job. You will really get into the story and will go through each feeling the characters are experiencing. That's what I love about this story.

All the characters are very real, you will disagree with them at times, you'll be happy and sad, you'll cry or at least feel like crying, you'll heal and grow with them.

I believe it's an amazing story and you won't regret giving it a chance.

If you have not read this book you need to get on board ASAP. This is truly on of the best books we're not reading and not talking about. It's one of the best books I've read. There are some books that just take you "there". This is one of those books.

When I discovered the first book in this series, I honestly didn’t know what to anticipate, but my expectations were not very high. I had found it on a blog's list of freebies back when I first started reading Indie books. I mean…it was free. At the time, this was insane to me. FREE! Now, and partially in thanks to this book, I download tons of freebies and have found so many other hidden gems this way.

In the beginning, it seemed like it would be a typical, cute, “best friends turned lovers” typ

* This review is on all three books. I tried really, really hard not to include any major spoilers but it is very difficult to summarize this series without doing that.

And the award for making me do the UGLIEST CRY EVER while reading a series goes to Lori Otto! Definitely one of my favorite series ever! Me and my book besties were discussing the series....if Lori didn't personally experience some of the things that happened in this book then she is plain and simple a master at making you feel em

As a whole I am giving Emi Lost & Found Series 4.5 stars.

Book 1 had me extremely frustrated. Nate and Emi both drove me insane. But, I was still captivated... I had to know what would happen. For all that Nate drove me bat-shit crazy, I managed to completely fall in love with him in the last 15-20%

Book 2-This is the masterpiece of this trilogy. And below is my review of book 2.. I felt it deserved a full review.. I could have written pages on the beauty o

I absolutely loved reading this series and I was pleasantly surprised at how much I loved it. Since I read all three books within a few days there were moments that I felt the story could move a bit quicker, it almost seemed to drag in certain parts but overall I thought it was fabulous! I seriously loved all three books!

This is the story about Emi and her quest to find her true love, and she does find it. She finds it with the most perfect man possible, Nate and I loved everything about

Lost and Found takes us to Nate and Emi’s relationship about 10 years after meeting one another. They are both adults working in their chosen career fields. Nate is a fine artist, and Emi a graphic artist/designer.

Nate, the quintessential player, dates many women through his 20s. Emi, does date a bit, but not near to the scale that Nate does. When Nate’s girlfriends begin to show tendencies of jealousy toward Emi, Nate makes some difficult and potentially damaging choices where his friendship wi

In Life you have soul mates and true love and this book express both. Emi and Nate was meant to be but through life they remained friends above anything until they could not fight the attraction for each other that everyone knew and anticipated. I fell in love with their banter, laughed when they laughed, cried when they cried (even when they didn't), and celebrated the coming of life and new adventures.

I loved them all, and my heart broke for them constantly.
