Back to Life, Danielle Allen

"Before you, I just existed. I didn't really live. I didn't really feel. I was going through the motions. And then I met you..." I stroked his face and gazed up at him. "And you brought me back to life."

Danielle Allen asked me to read the ARC of this book for an honest view. I didn’t read the synopsis or other reviews before reading it, so I did not know what to expect. I found that this book was extremely well written, captured by attention for the first page and held it all the way through. I couldn’t put it down, literally, I read it in a day, and by the end of it I had the biggest book hangover.

Back to Life is based around the main character Sahara, who pretty much ran away from home after an accident changed her life. 10 years after she finally started living again, thanks to Tyree ‘The Game Changer’

I have never felt so emotionally drained by the time I finished the book, and I just want to read the sequel to find out what happens. Danielle wrote the book from Sahara’s point of view, so when she was drawn to Ty, I felt like I was, the way she described situations, feelings, experiences was beautiful. The way she wrote Ty’s character had me rooting for Sahara to choose him from beginning to end. He was loving, funny, sexy and worked hard to get to where he is. The dream boyfriend.

However, it’s not all smooth sailing which kept me interesting, Sahara had to return home because of unresolved issues, and of course she sees her first love Emanuel, which turns her world upside down. I was not a fan of Emanuel from the beginning as I knew he was going to change things between Sahara and Ty.

The book ending on a cliff hanger destroyed me, I just wanted to read the happy ending for Sahara and Ty but I couldn’t as it hasn’t been written yet. Reading their love story in this book gives me hope that it will continue and survive in the book/s to come.

I would recommend this book to anyone, as I think it is suitable for all YA and Adult readers. I give this book a 5* rating, I was really impressed.
