Come Back to Me by Mila Gray Book Review

Come Back to Me (Come Back to Me #1)
Publisher: Simon Pulse
Release Date: December 8th 2015
Genre: Young Adult, New Adult, Contemporary, Romance, Drama, War, Fiction, Death

In this heart-wrenching tale of love and loss, a young Marine and his best friend’s sister plunge into a forbidden love affair while he’s home on leave.

When a Marine Chaplain knocks on her door, Jessa’s heart breaks—someone she loves is dead. Killed in action, but is it Riley or Kit? Her brother or her boyfriend…

Three months earlier, Marine Kit Ryan finds himself back home on leave and dangerously drawn to his best friend Riley’s sister, Jessa—the one girl he can’t have. Exhausted from fighting his feelings, Kit finally gives in, and Jessa isn’t strong enough to resist diving headfirst into a passionate relationship.

But what was just supposed to be a summer romance develops into something far greater than either of them expected. Jessa’s finally found the man of her dreams and Kit’s finally discovered there’s someone he’d sacrifice everything for.

When it’s time for Kit to redeploy, neither one is ready to say goodbye. Jessa vows to wait for him and Kit promises to come home to her. No matter what.

But as Jessa stands waiting for the Marine Chaplain to break her heart, she can’t help but feel that Kit has broken his promise…

Riley or Kit? Kit or Riley? Her brother or her boyfriend? Who’s coming home to her?

I was grabbed by this book and finished it in one sitting. The characters are well developed and make you get all sorts of feels.

Jessa was one of my favorite characters in recent books that I have read. Her father is tough and hard to relate too. Unfortunately for Jessa, the person his anger and hatred is most directed at is Kit, the one person who has pulled at her heartstrings for many years...he also just happens to be her brothers best friend. Even with everything against them, they find a way to keep their romance hidden, something not easy considering the odds that are stacked against them. Both Kit and Riley have joined the military, and when they leave for Afghanistan it is heartbreaking.

The author does a fabulous job of weaving different plotlines and keeping you reading to find out what happens. I would recommend it.
