Title: True North
Series: Bad Idea Series #3
Author: Nicole French
Genre: New Adult Contemporary Romance
Release Date: May 31, 2018

They said I was a bad idea. Poor. Violent. Criminal. 

They said I’d amount to nothing, and I believed them too. 

Until I met her.

Layla saved me from my worst, but sacrificed her best to do it. Now the tables have turned, and it's time for me to bring her back to the land of the living.

But I might be too late.  

Because sometimes our worst demons are those we never expect. And sometimes getting rid of them isn’t a choice at all. 

The odds have always been against us, but this time is different. But how can I be her true north if I'm still finding my own direction? I'll never know if I don't try. And one thing's for sure: I'll try anything for her.

True North continues Layla and Nico's story, a realistic love story that shows how, despite every wall put in their way, these two find a way to be together. The realities they face are tough, they're very similar to the stories we hear from friends every day, but Nicole French weaves hope into each struggle and every trial they face is a lesson that makes them grow. Layla learns how to accept her past, finding a way to face what haunts her, but also finding a way to learn to lean on others and accept love. She's such an open, honest character, so it was sweet to see her both recognize she wasn't accepting as openly as she gave it and recognize that her love is strong enough to even affect the most stubborn of men. Nico as a firefighter is the best, come on, we're all thinking it. Not only is he Layla's knight in shining armor, but he is a public servant with a vigilante attitude. He's kind, sometimes a little arrogant, and more than loving to everyone he meets. He's compassionate and the sort of man anyone dreams of having. As a finishing novel a lot happens in True North, but more specifically a lot of character growth takes place. Layla and Nico not only accept themselves, but accept who and what they are together. You'll be swooning a lot. Plus, we get to see them really be a couple, a strong adult couple, and that's refreshing and more than great for them. It's the perfect last novel.

The title of this novel is so perfect and has a lot of meaning behind it, which I really appreciate in any storyline. It's a very well delivered romance with just the right amount of angst, definitely a series I'd recommend and will personally re-read again.
