I was unprepared to be as taken with this story as I turned out to be. I was immediately engaged by Mike’s endearing character, touched by the pain of his past, drawn in by his determination, and captured by his loving family. There was a simplicity about it all that made it feel easy, like reading a journal. When Mike sees Taryn for the first time, his reaction to her was so endearing and so intriguing – and hers was so carefully controlled (an yet not) – that I knew the pursuit would be both challenging and entertaining. Amy Gregory did not disappoint in that regard.
The beauty of this book – and, I assume, the remaining books in this series – is its simplicity and its utter sweetness. It’s surprisingly short, but the length perfectly suits the story and leaves the reader wanting more of this couple down the road, not unlike Bennett and Chloe in another endearing series. It is comforting in a way that’s difficult to describe. The characters are as well developed as they can be and the chemistry between all of the characters is charming. I loved Andrew and Scott as well. The humor and heart they brought to the story, their love for each other and for Taryn — again, simple, sweet and powerful at the same time. The sexual tension between Mike and Taryn is ever under the surface until “the moment” finally comes – and I nearly stood up and cheered, at that point.
I recommend this book – and the next one – to anyone who wants to truly relax and engage in a wonderful love story with a small-town feel, a caring cast of characters, and two imperfect heroes, learning about themselves by “becoming themselves” with each other. It is well worth reading and I look forward to more from Amy Gregory.
Mike's Way Back follows Mike, detective and cop extraordinaire, who has moved back to his hometown. He has this quiet strength about him that I really liked, and though he is still a cop, his alpha male side is controlled, sensitive or strong at all the right times. Plus his detective side allows him to see beyond the surface. He's been burned before, and old wounds die hard, but into his life walks Taryn, a woman to challenge him, but maybe even heal him. Taryn herself is passionate about her job, has created an exterior that has protected her over the years, but unknowingly needs someone to see past her walls and love her for who she is, letting her inner firecracker out.
I loved the pacing and interactions between Mike and Taryn. They have wonderful banter that helps open them up to each other, and beyond that the more they are with each other, even by phone or email, the clearer you can see their friendship forming, and blooming into more. Even within the limited time frame, it all felt very natural. I truly enjoyed their honesty, their genuine care and consideration of the other, their lack of game-playing, how well they worked together, the laughs they shared, and of course their chemistry (their hot chemistry).
Additionally, one of Amy Gregory's strengths in her RTL series was the great community of characters she brings to life. We're not limited to just the MCs or given some token one-dimensional secondary characters. In MWB, we once again gain some wonderful characters that I look forward to getting to know more and more. Everyone has a place in the story and it gives a lovely depth to this book.
Amy Gregory created a beautiful, sweet romance between two characters with incredible humor, heart, healing, and love. I'm so happy about the start of this new series, and I hope Mike and Taryn make appearances in the rest of the upcoming books.
Mike and Taryn have an instant attraction. But both have their demons and secrets. And quite a bit of distance. So they talk, A LOT. And flirt:) All the while falling for each other. It is a sexy love story. Before they even have sex!
Steam factor- WOW!
They also both have great backup-he has his family and friends and she has the family she has made in Andrew ans Scott. And a surprise friend in the grumpy book store owner Gabby- who also has an incredible story!
HEA story that makes you root for them and love the ending. Cannot wait for more stories from AG- Gabby and Andrew and Scott!
