About Return to You:She will never forget their past...
He can't stop thinking about their future...
James Montgomery has achieved everything he'd hoped for in life...except marrying the girl of his dreams. After a terrible accident, Selena Ainsley left ten years ago. She took his heart with her and she's never coming back. But it's becoming harder and harder for him to forget their precious time together, and James can't help but wonder what he would do if they could ever meet again.
This was a really cute book. The premise, the family elders playing matchmaker to marry their kids and nieces and nephews off, that I just love. I also really liked the characters and how they interacted with each other. Chemistry was off the charts, both in terms of sexual chemistry and interacting with each other on an everyday basis. And not just Selena and James. The secondary characters were really great, too.
However, the plot lacked originality. I love second chance romances, and the reason for the first separation doesn’t need to be anything spectacular. But if it’s going to be something as dramatic as it was in Return to You, there should be an aspect of originality. Off the top of my head, I can think of at least two books that I’v read semi-recently with the same reason for separation.
About Samantha Chase:
New York Times and USA Today Bestseller/contemporary romance writer Samantha Chase released her debut novel, Jordan’s Return, in November 2011. Although she waited until she was in her 40’s to publish for the first time, writing has been a lifelong passion. Her motivation to take that step was her students: teaching creative writing to elementary age students all the way up through high school and encouraging those students to follow their writing dreams gave Samantha the confidence to take that step as well.
When she’s not working on a new story, she spends her time reading contemporary romances, playing way too many games of Scrabble or Solitaire on Facebook and spending time with her husband of 25 years and their two sons in North Carolina.
