After several days of sleeping in his car and parking in one of the employee's spots, he is confronted by police. Once brought inside he meets the lovely Jennifer, who proceeds to lend him some money because she is a kind hearted spirit. Their relationship starts on a lie and continues from there. They are both "madly in love" an decided to run off and elope after finding out they were expecting. Brian turns out to be everything she expected in a man, at least that's what she thought. Eventually Brians true self rears its ugly head and Jennifer is left wondering where she went wrong. On their way to visit Brians parents, an incident occurs and she is left stranded at a diner alone and pregnant. She ends up meeting a nice stranger who offers her a ride home. Does Brian change his ways for the girl of his dreams or does he continue on the destructive path he has been on his entire life? Is love enough to change a person or is all hope lost for Jennifer?
The book definitely had you yelling at Jennifer for being so blind, but who can blame her. Brian was handsome and charming, hid his lies well and had her falling hard. I definitely recommend reading this book, you will find that it is very realistic and heart breaking.
This was not your typical romance. The characters are presented in a believable situation. By having them believable it made the plot great.
Jennifer---She was very level headed and smart. The two qualities also make he a little naïve and innocent. At first this made her seem as a person that could be taken advantage of but the more I read the more she became a very well rounded character and also showed that she was a very loving person. I loved that she was willing to take risks and was adventures.
Brian---He is introduced by showing his struggles. This continues through out the book. Even though he struggles he does seem to try to make things better for himself as well as those around him. However, all of his struggles seem to catch up with him every time that he advances. With his struggles Brian doesn't really know how to handle the after math very well. So how does this Affect Jennifer and him? You will have to read to find out.
For Amy Stephens first novel this book was great. You can tell that she thoroughly thought through what she wanted to portray.
Don't Turn Back was a very enjoyable experience to read, and I will recommend others to read this book.
**I received an ARC for an honest review**
So why the love/hate relationship you ask. Let's start with Brian. I just wanted to strangle him at times, ok most of the time. Just when I was starting to like him and have hope for him he would turn around and do something that made me want to strangle him again. I know people have ups and downs in their life but he did not make good judgments sometimes.
Jennifer is working hard for her future. She is a nice girl and treats everyone with respect. She is an innocent girl and gives Brian many fair chances in their relationship. There were times when I wanted to tell her to open her eyes and see the things she needed to see.
I gave the story 4 stars because it did make me go through so many emotions while reading it. It is not often that you read a story that is realistic and believable just like you may be living it. Can't wait to see what the future holds for Jennifer and Brian.
We don't all have great jobs and great parents. We don't all break out of the bad and find the perfect happy ending. We watch others endure and go back to bad situations and wonder what the he'll they are thinking but this book shows how easily the cycle gets repeated.
I did not love or connect to either main character. I felt sorry for them. I got angry with them. They made stupid bad mistakes over and over just like real people in real situations do every single day.
I have to say, I don't know how this story will end and I'm intrigued.
