Synopsis:
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 would like to thank the publisher for providing me with advanced reviewer copy for an honest review.

Come Back To Me is an emotional, passionate journey that will have you falling in love with both Kit and Jessa. The rotating POV’s really got you into their mindset and separate struggles in having a relationship. The opening chapter is powerful and will leave you dying to get to the end. I really loved this book!

The opening has the officers bringing news along with Kit’s dad, and he has been crying. Jessa knows it is bad and can only mean one thing, but which one was it? Her brother or Kit, the man she is now in love with.

The book goes back to 3 months before and shows how Jessa and Kit’s relationship develops. Both Kit and Jessa’s dads hate each other. Jessa’s dad takes it out on Kit, he has never liked Kit being Riley’s best-friend and would hate it if he liked his daughter.

Jessa has liked Kit since she was about fifteen but he never noticed plus with an over protective brother and father she never got the chance to have much of a life. Jessa is now eighteen but still is scared to not do what her dad wants. She still lives in a bubble, and doesn’t carry out any of her own dreams.

Kit can see how unhappy Jessa is and wishes she would stop letting her dad scare her into not living her life the way she wants. Kit has a plan to make her do things while he is home for eight weeks, he wants her to experience things she hasn’t been allowed to or scared to.

The scary part with Jessa and Kit spending all this time together is that time is running out. They both start to see the real person, and walls start to come down.

Just not what I expected from you.”
“I have a soft and sweet side. You just haven’t discovered it yet.

Kit has always been a player, never had a girlfriend. Riley and Jo laugh at the idea of him being serious about anyone. Kit feels different about Jessa and wants to be different with her.

“I like the way she sees me, I think to myself as I stare up at the million dead and dying stars above us. It’s someone worth striving to be.”

When they both agree to date and make this a relationship, time is coming close to an end, Jessa’s fears settle in. She lets Kit know how scared she is for him.

“Come back to me. Promise you’ll come back to me.”
“Always

Who comes back to Jessa, is it Riley or Kit? Will Jessa get the courage she needs to stand up to her father and live the life she wants? What happened between Kit and Jessa’s fathers? You have to read this book to find out.

I really enjoyed the way that Sarah grabbed me at the beginning of this book, it made me want to finish. The chemistry was great, very sexy. I would definitely recommend this book for an older teen due to some of the content. I however really enjoyed it and I can’t wait to read more. I am giving this book 4 out of 5 stars.
