Book Review: The Return

The Return by AL Park: Eve Carlisle had a singular purpose - sell the rustic house nestled in the Colorado ski resort town.

Tortured by her husband’s betrayal, the beautiful divorcee refused to give her heart to another man. But Jake had been a happy surprise, with his mesmerizing blue eyes, warm smile, strong but gentle nature – as well as being incredibly sexy.

She had convinced herself the relationship with Jake was nothing more than a fling. After all, she had a life in Newport, with society friends and a lucrative career as a family court judge. Still, Jake had a definitive hold over her, and she was finding it hard to think clearly where he was concerned.

The demons of prior failed marriages haunt them both, and threaten to end things just as they are beginning. When Jake tells Eve he is falling in love with her, Eve refuses to believe it can last. Returning to Newport, the hollowness of her existence exposed, she must confront her fears before she loses Jake forever.

Lori's thoughts: Loved this book. Very well written. :) And, isn't the cover gorgeous?! Eve and Jake are an amazing couple and proof that when you least expect should expect it. Eve is smart, and tough, and has been through too much crap to want to start over. So it's hard for her to just pick up and go. She doesn't want to leave her home behind, and it takes going back home again to realize she really didn't have much to go home to. It would be hard to pick up and just move halfway across the country, but at least she had a home waiting for her, should she decide that's what she wanted to do. :) Bravo, AL! Can't wait to see what's up next for you!
