Received ARC of this book for an honest view.
After reading the first book in the Back to Life series I must say I was excited when Danielle asked me to review this one as well. I loved the first book, so I was nervous about the second; would it live up to my expectations? Would Sahara go for the Tyree the guy I was rooting for or would she go to Manny her childhood love?
I must say Danielle Allen didn’t disappoint me, throughout the book there was a good amount of drama, love and sex. Although I was kind of hoping in this book Sahara would be a bit of a stronger character she was still struggling to find herself and quite weak.
The relationship between Sahara and her best friend is back to what it used to be like, they are stronger than ever and even when Sahara runaway again she told her where she was going and what she was doing.
My favourite part of the book was near the end when Manny and Sahara sing a love song together, even though I was rooting for Tyree in that part of the book you could really feel the chemistry between the characters and see them both come to terms with their feelings.
What I did find about the book was that Sahara writing letters was a bit repetitive. I know that her therapist told her to write her feelings down in a journal, I just wish Sahara was strong enough to face people instead of hiding behind words, tell everyone to their faces how she really feels, because for me it was just a sign of how weak of a person she is and at the end of the book although she made a choice and is happy, the final letter made me feel as if she still had so far to come before she would be strong.
Overall I give this book 3.5* I didn't enjoy it as much as the first one, but that doesn't mean it wasn't a great book.
