Come Back To Me by Mila Gray
  

Sarah Broadhurst's view...

Mila Grey is in fact the Young Adult author Sarah Alderson. Now Alderson’s brilliant books are pretty risqué by YA standards so she’s adopted this pseudonym for her foray into the adult arena as this book really is pretty steamy indeed. Young forbidden love blossoms when 18 year old Jessa falls for her big brother’s best friend and infamous Marine Lothario Kit though her brother and father would kill them if they knew what was going on. But this isn’t just a steamy interlude as they both fall hard and soon, as Kit is redeployed, it isn’t just family that’s getting in the way of true love. A great, frothy, sexy romantic read.

If you like Mila Gray you might also like to read books by Amanda Prowse, Nicholas Sparks and Sarah Alderson.

Synopsis

Come Back To Me by Mila Gray

Come back to me. That was the very last thing I said to him. Always. The very last thing he said to me. Home on leave in sunny California, Marine and local lothario Kit Ryan finds himself dangerously drawn to his best friend's sister, Jessa - the one girl he can't have. But Kit's not about to let a few obstacles stand in his way and soon Jessa's falling for his irresistible charms. What starts out as a summer romance of secret hook-ups and magical first times quickly develops into a passionate love affair that turns both their worlds upside down. When summer's over and it's time for Kit to redeploy, neither Kit nor Jessa are ready to say goodbye. Jessa's finally following her dreams and Kit's discovered there's someone he'd sacrifice everything for. Jessa's prepared to wait for Kit no matter what. But when something more than distance and time rips them apart they're forced to decide whether what they have is really worth fighting for. A breathtaking, scorchingly hot story about love, friendship, family and finding your way back from the edge of heartbreak.

Reviews

'A captivating, heartfelt and sexy romance about the power of a love that won't let go.'

- Liz Bankes, author of Irresistible

'A perfect, heartwrenching love story.'

-Weaving Pages

'The sexiest, most romantic book I've ever read ... I couldn't put it down.'

- Becky Wicks, author of Before He Was Famous

'With the cover and story reminding me of the likes of Nicholas Sparks (which if you are a fan of then you will definitely love this book too), I think the author has done an excellent job with her storytelling, characters, and most importantly, with the powerful, raw emotions that came with those certain characters.'

'I can't tell you how excited I was to read it, I had high expectations for the story and she utterly smashed them. Just reading the prologue gave me goosebumps and put a knot of fear in my stomach ... Come Back to Me is intense, passionate, romantic and totally swoon worthy. It made me laugh one minute and sob my heart out the next, broke my heart but helped put it back together again ... Mila Gray captures the intensity of first relationships, that feeling of being head over heels I can't live without you in love ... This isn't just a romance though, it's also a story about family and friendship, about loss and grief but also about finding hope in the darkest times and realising that no matter how hard it gets life goes on.'

- FeelingFictional.com

'A relaxing, easy, entertaining love story between two characters who are figuring out their lives both apart and separate. If you're in the mood for first loves with a hero who can melt your heart and a heroine enamoured by him this book will definitely work for you.' -SheReadsNewAdult.com

'Wow I absolutely loved it. It's an intense, sweepingly romantic story with compelling individuals who flourish together ... I cried whilst reading it on the train. I cried on a packed train, and I didn't care because I was so entranced. Unmissable.'

-navigatornic.co.uk

'It's steamy, and heart-fluttering, and everything a good new adult novel should be. Kit and Jessa's relationship jumped off of the very first page ... I'm a sucker for forbidden love, and this one reeled me in without any hope of my getting away. I adored the characters and the journey they each took throughout this book ... it really was a great, great read. It's a heartfelt story I think everyone can be drawn into. Congrats, Mila!' -victoriaapresminuit.blogspot.co.uk

'I started reading it on the plane and was totally engrossed in it the flight literally flew by. Even from the first chapter I was hooked and needed to keep reading it ... The storyline had me on the edge of my sunbed, waiting to find out what happened. I loved it ... Jessa and Kit are fantastic characters who will keep you coming back for more. I actually sat by the pool and cried, thank goodness for the sunglasses!!'

'I love the characters in this book and find them to be some of the most believable people that I've ever read about. The relationship between Kit and Jessa is really admirable and just made me feel all fangirly (There were quite a few fangirl squeals). It also made me tear up on a few occasions which shows how invested I was in the story. This book was just PERFECTION and I cannot recommend it enough!'

-thebookishreviews.wordpress.com

'I was hooked instantly and found myself emotionally invested in the book from the get go ... A forbidden romance, a series of firsts, a friendship that turns into a passionate love between the both of them ... loved this story so much that I read it all in 3 hours, I literally couldn't put it down. It is packed full of raw emotion, extremely intense ... This book is breathtakingly good. I think Kit Ryan might just be my new favourite book boyfriend.' -mamamummymum.co.uk

'This book deserves more than 5 stars ... The only downside to this was book, was that fact that Kit Ryan was fictional. This book was filled with swoon worthy moments and there are plenty of cute things said by Kit to make you squeal. This book got me from jumping up and down out of excitement, to crying my eyes out. I totally recommend this book to anybody and everybody, 5.'
-Goodreads review

'I highly recommend it, you'll miss out a lot if you don't. This book had me laughing, gripped, crying and a bunch of other emotions but most of all it had me addicted 5*.' -Goodreads review

'I was so excited when I heard about this book and it did not disappoint. I literally could not put it down and ended up staying up late to finish chapters and sneakily trying to read it in work! This book has everything a good novel needs - romance, forbidden love, action, angst, buff guys and a whole lots of drama that will have you frantically reading to the end of the page so you can turn over and find out what happens and will have you re-reading passages to make sure you read that right and yes it did just happen! This is a book I will be recommending to all my friends and more than likely giving out as gifts to my fellow book loving friends. So what are you waiting for? Get this book now 5*.'

- Goodreads review
