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? (Goodreads)
Jessa and Kit have known each other for years, with Kit being Jessa's brothers best friend, they naturally because close friends as well. But as the years have gone by, their simple friendship has turned into secret crushes, which explodes into passionate and intense summer romance that blossoms into something so much more than either Kit nor Jess expected. And when leave is over, and Kit is again on deployment, tragedy strikes, and it's epic and threatens to tear their newly found relationship completely apart.
Seriously, this book gave me ALL THE FEELS. As I mentioned above, the relationship between Kit and Jessa, once discovered, was extremely intense and passionate. This book definitely did not lack in the sexy-times department, and boy were there a lot of them. But along with the romantic feels, this book brought up so many other feelings as well. I laughed and giggled along with Kit and Jessa and some of the situations they went through. I cringed when I thought their secret affair was about to be exposed. My heart broke in two when tragedy strikes and leaves everyone completely shell-shocked. I totally mean it when I say the book gave me all the feels. It totally did, and I LOVE books that do this. Also, the storyline for the book was completely engrossing and I totally adored a lot of the secondary characters in the story as well.
Overall; I really, really enjoyed Come Back to Me. I absolutely need the second book in this series, This Is One Moment, which is Jessa's friend Didi's story, in my life as soon as humanly possible, because I just know that it's going to be great as well!
