[Read] ➲ Lead Me Back ➮ C.D. Reiss – 9facts.co.uk
Unlike some of the other romances I ve read lately that have had an annoying tendency to sag or lose their way in the middle, Lead Me Back started off on an enjoyable, 4 star level, but continued to build until by the end it was solidly in 5 star territory I loved this book The characterization of Justin, the bad boy lead singer of a boy band that spectacularly self destructed was particularly strong Initially Justin came off as a decent guy who d been corrupted by fame to the point where he took it for granted that the world should revolve around him and his needs When he meets Kayla, he just assumes that she has nothing better to do than to fall in line and do what he wants, regardless of her own goals and desires It comes as quite a shock to him when she figuratively gives him the finger and walks away Justin initially appear to be a spoiled brat, BUT, such is the magic of C.D Reiss writing that she slowly redeems him, showing the truly good guy underneath and having him evolve to the point where he becomes a worthy partner that any woman would be lucky to have As for Kayla, she was the type of heroine I love, strong, sure of herself and her own abilities, not willing to put up with any BS, and also not willing to sacrifice her own dreams and ambitions just because she happened to catch Justin s attention She never hesitated to stand up for herself or to back away to keep from getting swallowed up by the drama that seemed to swirl around him, no matter how much she was attracted to him The romance itself was kind of a slow burn which fit the story perfectly, since Justin needed to mature a bit before he became someone that Kayla could trust enough to be intimate with Overall, 5 enthusiastic stars I voluntarily read and reviewed an advance copy of this book All thoughts and opinions are my own. I want to thank Netgalley for this ARC in exchange for my honest opinion Lead Me Back by CD Reiss is a book that deals with the struggles of an young fashion designer named Kayla, who has to deal with the fallout of accusing her boss of sexual assault She by chance gets the number of Justin, who is a singer and movie star Justing convinced Kayla to take the calls that come and leave him messages if they re for him At the same time he gets her a job They keep meeting and the sparks fly high Both Justing and Kayla are characters that have so much depth to them I loved their characters, because they are so human Their feelings, the way they handle situations It was all very real The author writes about the fallout of the MeToo movement and the way that the victims are the ones that actually have to suffer Making it harder for women to come out and tell their stories I also loved how Justin supported his friends through everything while getting nothing in return Lead Me Back is a very good romance, it s a slowburn but the story is everything but dragging I loved the characters and the way they dealt with their issues I give this book four stars C A Twist Of Fate Proves Wildly Explosive In New York Times Bestselling Author CD Reiss S Smart And Sexy Hollywood Romance About The Cost Of Running From Your Past To Get To Your Dreams Cutting All Ties, Kayla Montgomery Drives Cross Country To Los Angeles New Start New Life And An Unexpected New Job Assistant To Justin Beckett The Justin BeckettThe Boy Band Rebel With The Cocky Attitude And Dreamy Bed Head Who Casts A Spell Over His Fans And Tests The Patience Of His HandlersNow At The Peak Of Mount Adulthood, He Has To Build A Clean Cut, Movie Star Image It S In His Contract No Partying No Attitude No GroupiesTo Tie It Together, He Needs A Normal GirlSuddenly, Kayla S Swept Up In Justin S Glamorous World, And His Arms But The Most Dizzying Thing Is Justin Himself Sweet, Generous, Reliable, And As Eager To Shed His Past As Kayla Is HersAbout That Those Ties She Thought She D Cut They Ve Followed Her Across The Country With Her Secrets In Tow, And They Re About To Test Kayla S Courage, Justin S Loyalty, And A Love That Wasn T Part Of The Deal [Read] ➭ Longbow Girl Author Linda Davies – 9facts.co.uk Kayla Montgomery Drives Cross Country To Los Angeles New Start New Life And An Unexpected New Job Assistant To Justin Beckett The Justin BeckettThe Boy Band Rebel With The Cocky Attitude And Dreamy Bed Head Who Casts A Spell Over His Fans And Tests The Patience Of His HandlersNow At The Peak Of Mount Adulthood [ Download ] ✤ On His Naughty List Author Jessica Jarman – 9facts.co.uk He Has To Build A Clean Cut [PDF] ✓ Fire Colour One ✪ Jenny Valentine – 9facts.co.uk Movie Star Image It S In His Contract No Partying No Attitude No GroupiesTo Tie It Together [Epub] ↠ Invisible Wounds Author Kay Douglas – 9facts.co.uk He Needs A Normal GirlSuddenly [PDF] ↠ A City Possessed Author Lynley Hood – 9facts.co.uk Kayla S Swept Up In Justin S Glamorous World [PDF] Her Husbands Mistake By Sheila O& – 9facts.co.uk And His Arms But The Most Dizzying Thing Is Justin Himself Sweet [PDF] ↠ Mr Dove Über Den Wassern Author Maurice Shadbolt – 9facts.co.uk Generous [Read] ➵ Squirmy Wormy ➱ Lynda Farrington Wilson – 9facts.co.uk Reliable [PDF / Epub] ✓ Honeymoon ★ Sacha J.
