I was drawn to Back To Us because of Justin's military background and the topic of PTSD. My husband is a veteran who served 20 years in the U.S. Navy and stories that honor our servicemen and women, while showcasing their sacrifice and the aftermath of their service, are near and dear to my heart. Roman did a wonderful job of portraying Justin and his struggles in a realistic way. My heart ached for him as he tried to come to terms with his new reality. He was angry and bitter at times, at both his situation and the life he imagined but would never have. Jessica was also a likable character, one who had worked hard to overcome a horrible childhood. While she was independent and hard-working, she still carried insecurities from years of emotional abuse and the parents who basically abandoned her. I loved seeing these two characters get to know one another and start to open themselves up to a new relationship even though they were both hesitant to take a chance. While I would have liked to have seen more depth to both their characters, this was still a heartfelt and emotional story that I enjoyed and recommend.
The love story between Jess and Justin was a sweet case of instalove, but how can you blame Jess. She was abandoned at an early age and was starving for someone to love her. With love comes trust, and Jess struggles with that part of the picture. Miscommunication , hurt feelings and secrets drive the story to a climax, but eventually Jess and Justin learn to move past their pain and begin to enjoy life together. The epilogue ties the story up nicely and leaves you smiling as you close your kindle.
Jessica and Justin are both young lovers who have issues to deal with on their own without adding the problems associated with a romance. Jessica is a college student working hard to put herself through school on her own. Justin is a former Navy medic who lost both legs in an IUD explosion in Afghanistan and is trying to learn his own self worth. Both have issues with their own image of who they are and what they can accomplish. Their romance is made even sweeter when they learned to love themselves.
Cute love story. Easy and quick read.
I'm not usually a reader of romance, but this was a good one, and I read it in one sitting. Written in Jessica's first person point of view, Ms. Roman does a nice job of getting into Jessica's mindset, but she also does well exposing Justin's insecurities and emotions. I would have liked a little more development at the end between Jessica and Justin's mother, but it didn't detract from the growth of the two main characters and how they came together. I never doubted they would, but it was a joy reading how they got there. Good book.
