A Way Back Into Love
Nothing is perfect. Life is messy. Relationships are complex. Outcomes, uncertain. People, irrational. But love…well, that makes everything complicated. And when you are caught in a tangled web of secrets, lies, and complex affairs, someone is bound to get burned.
Emily Stevens is a spunky, spirited college girl whose life gets turned upside-down when she realizes she's in love with her best friend of fifteen years, Derek Thorpe. As Emily prepares to confess her feelings to Derek, something happens one night which changes her life forever. Five years later, Emily finds herself in Boston, alone and heartbroken. Will she ever be able to forget the past? And what will she find when she returns home...to the man she left behind?
I'll start by saying that I did wanted to know what was going to happen in this book. I keep reading and wanted to know how it turned out.
I did have a few issues with the book though, the text doesn't flow particularly well, it's almost as though someone has gone through what was there with a thesaurus and added more complex words. In some cases though they slow the text down, at some points, they don't even make sense with in the context. Once you get through this, you can ignore that. It is also confusing with the main Character and her sister having very similar names, especially when they are both referred Em.
On the whole this is a best friends love story. I have to admit that I did feel sorry for the sister, I'm not sure that there was any need to cast her as a rival. On the whole though it's a nice straight forward romance.
