I am always a sucker for second chances.  Life, love, it doesn’t much matter, I’m there rooting for a better this time around.  The author’s books are always emotional and this one is no exception.  It showcases the ups and the downs and draws you in and makes you invested.  They both had a lot of baggage they were bringing to the relationship and you have to wonder if it was just too much to overcome.

I liked Stephanie and Mike and really rooted for them.  I liked the writing style, it made the book easy to read and wasn’t an obstacle to enjoying the story.  A lot of sweet and some spice makes for a great romance.

About the book:

Stephanie Hawley is my greatest weakness.

The red-haired hellion who both infuriates me and lights me on fire.

She’s also my wife.

One alcohol-fueled night in Vegas, we made a commitment, one she wasn’t ready for.

Nothing like a marriage to destroy a relationship.

Yet, I can’t quit her. Despite being broken up, whenever she knocks on my door, I let her in without question.

But when she shows up looking for something else entirely—a date to her sister’s wedding—I take a chance. I’ll be her date, if she’ll be my wife—for real this time.

Now we’re living in the same house, going home to her chaotic family, and trying to put the pieces of our relationship back together again.

With everything on the line, I’m starting to wonder if we can rise above the pain of our tortured pasts or if our heartache will tear us apart for good.

Can Mike and Steph learn to open their hearts and trust each other or will their relationship end up another painful memory? Find out in their steamy, emotional, second chance small-town romance.

Running Back to You is full of fiery, passionate moments. Recommended for readers aged 18+
