Return to Newport

Summary small

Eve is ready for a clean slate. She nearly lost the love of her life in The Return. Now Eve must confront the people refusing to let her go quietly into her happily ever after with Jake. Returning to Newport to tie up loose ends may be the biggest mistake of her life.

Jake wants one thing – and one thing only – Eve. He is ready to build a life with her, and spend the rest of his days loving only her. But his surprise visit to Newport makes him question everything he thought he knew about her, including her love.

At the center of the turmoil is Eve’s ex-husband. Intrigued by the changes he sees in her, Brad is determined to sabotage Jake and Eve’s relationship – and take Eve back.

Jake and Eve must face their demons, and battle the outside forces that seek to destroy their future. Can their love survive the Return to Newport?

My Reviewsmall

This book starts up right where The Return left off. I said that book one didn’t evoke any emotions from me. Not the case with this book. I was so angry and frustrated with Jake.

I like Jake and Eve even though they like to jump to conclusions like their life depends on it! I also like Eve’s kids. Her oldest daughter is pretty funny. I think as exes go, Eve’s is the worst!

I was also shocked with The Big Thing happened #nospoilers. I feel like I should have seen it coming but I didn’t. Not like that at least. I do agree that something drastic needed to happen to get Jake’s head out of his ass.

I enjoyed reading these books and seeing how these two came together. They are proof that love isn’t enough if you don’t put forth the effort and work for it. Also that ending a relationship badly doesn’t mean every person will treat you as the other had. Sometimes you just have to have faith.
