Bring Me Back (The Evans Trilogy 3)  Jennifer Collin
Review from Jeannie Zelos book reviews
Genre: Romance.
I hadn’t read the first book in this trilogy, but its one of those where each story is complete and the stories are connected by characters only. I loved the second one Open My Eyes, and recall vaguely Andy and Annie from there.

Annie’s steampunk style of dress – I love it. she’s a great friend to all of Andy’s family, with his sister Emily being her best friend. She is almost part of the family – they regard her as such, but she’s had such a lack of love since her mum died that she doesn’t seem to feel she deserves anything good, and holds part of herself back all the while. This shows up in her boyfriend stance, casual only, nothing permanent or serious. She’s always felt guilty as Andy disappeared while she was watching over him, he’d been beaten up by his drug dealer, and after they’d all been out for the night and found him everyone else was busy, so she was watching over him and fell asleep. So she’s searched out constantly since then, feeling so guilty. Now she’s in Oamaru for the weekend for her work, and she spots him and doesn’t let go!
Andy – he was in a bad place when he left, an addicted rock star, he’d been in rehab unsuccessfully, caused much worry to his family and owed his dealer a substantial sum, hence the beating. He knows that this time he needs to get away from everything and everyone if he’s to pick up his life, and does a complete disappearance. Since then – six years on – he’s had lots of cash jobs under an assumed name, and its only by co-incidence that he’s in Oamaru at the same time as Annie. He always liked her, though showed it by snark and snippiness, thanks to his jerky junkie personality,  Annie was attracted to him but due to her foibles and past never let it show. There’s something they’ve both done that’s really sweet when its revealed, and shows just how much they cared.

Annie is a lovely person, very one off original and I’d love to be her. Andy in his reformed personality was fabulous, he was ready to come back, and probably would have been before, but wanted to keep his family safe. We see behind the man he was. I love his family – the closeness of them, loved seeing how Emily and Ben have progressed since the last book, and was pulled into the story. Loved too how Annie came out on top at the end over her awful uncle and his wife, who’d done so many horrible things to her.
It’s a lovely romance, with a bit of a suspense and mystery attached, and I enjoyed it though I didn’t love it as much as Open my Eyes. Still a good read though if you like a real romance that’s full of story and not simply sex on every other page…

Stars: Four . a solid romance read with plenty of story.

About jeanniezelos

I'm an avid reader, love my kindle and I have my head in a novel for hours daily : ) Mum used to say I'd read toilet paper if it was printed- it wasn't, so i had to contend myself with the back and sides of the cereal packets. I've always Needed to read and we had few books when i was a child hence my penchant for reading anything including adverts then... I review mainly contemporary, erotic and paranormal romance books though dystopian and urban fantasy also appeal. I'm currently rated around the 300 mark on for my reviews. I try to keep them structured and to say what I do and don't like about a book so other readers can use my review as a guide to whether they may enjoy the book.
