I'm extremely picky about adult romance, so it says a lot that I'm a huge fan of every single one of Jamie Howard's romances. In the first two books in the Love Unplugged series, I fell in love with Gavin MacCormack -- particularly, his bantery bromance with Felix (star of Feeling of Forever). And I was intrigued about the mysterious woman from his past who broke his heart. So I was so excited for The Way Back to Us!
When Gavin was in college, he fell in love with a redhead named Dani -- only to have his heart broken when she vanished without a trace one morning, leaving nothing but a short note behind. Now, as the lead singer of the popular band, The Downfall, Gavin has put Dani behind him and is content playing the field. That is, until she shows up back in town and bumps into him. Now, Gavin wants answers about why Dani left and why she came back -- and why she's so hesitant to start a relationship with him now, even though it doesn't take long for the familiar sparks to return. But Dani has a dangerous secret, and letting Gavin back into her life could risk both of their safeties. She knows it isn't long before she'll have to disappear again, and she knows their relationship will only end one way -- in heartbreak.
I loved Dani. She is a total badass, and definitely not a damsel-in-distress heroine who needs saving. She can take care of herself. It was also cool that the usual brooding, closed-off romance character who didn't want a relationship was the girl this time -- a nice, refreshing change! Definitely one of my favorite romance heroines of all time. Why is it always the guy who gets to be broody and have secrets? Kind of a bummer that people are calling Dani "unlikable" when she acts just like many male romance heroes who get all the praise and love for their broodiness. If she is what people consider "unlikable," then give me all the unlikable women heroines, please!
I also loved Gavin. His dedication to Dani despite her coldness toward him was so endearing. He's such a great guy and I'm so happy he and Dani finally get their happy ending!
This second chance romance has a great romantic suspense element, and an awesome twist at the end. I loved it! I also loved seeing Ian and Bianca, Felix and Jules, and Ben and Rachel from the other books. Their friend group is awesome, and all the characters are so fleshed out and real. Best of all, I loved the return of my favorite Gavin-and-Felix banter, even though Felix lives with Jules now. I can't wait to read more from this author!
Everything is going to change when Dani and her father come to NYC. As they run into each other, they have to decide whether they can move forward- especially since their time is limited and Dani will have to leave eventually (she never stays anywhere for more than 6 months). However, as Gavin says, it's worth going to Hogwarts, even if you can't stay for very long.
As their relationship grows and we wonder about the mystery that keeps Dani constantly moving, the book completely sucks you in. I found myself unable to put it down as I became completely invested in Dani and Gavin. The second half is full of action and all sorts of events that I won't describe to avoid spoilers, but I will say that this is a heavily plot-driven romance. There are only a few hot and steamy scenes and the vast majority of the book focuses on their lives/events. I prefer it this way but I know some people prefer more intimate scenes, so I wanted to mention it.
Overall, it's a really fantastic and intense romance, and I'd love to read more from this talented author! There are so many great side characters that I would love to hear about in future books. Please note that I received an ARC from the publisher through netgalley. All opinions are my own.
It was nice to get some closure for Gavin. I was super curious to learn more about the girl who captured his heart and I was not disappointed in the journey to learn all about it.
Like The Feeling of Forever, this one has a romantic suspense vibe to it. Which was a little unexpected but kept me hooked and constantly coming up with new theories for what was happening. Of course, I was totally wrong so bonus points for that twist! But the whole premise gave this story a unique feel to it and I found it to be a refreshing take on the second chance romance.
My only complaint is that I wanted to see how these two fell in love. For me, it almost read like a sequel novel to their first book where they fell in love and this was the novel to wrap it all up to see if love can conquer all. I'm a reader who likes to be shown those romantic moments where couples fall in love. It doesn't always work for me to be told why these two love each other as they battle the dramatic plot lines.
However, it did work here in a way. Obviously, these two make a great pair and I loved them together. As I reader I definitely got why these two would fight everything to be together. In that aspect Howard succeeds in her writing. But I wanted a little bit of that "so called" first book of theirs because I'm a huge fan. I wanted to see them meet and establish what is a great relationship and partnership instead of seeing it already exist. We get little tidbits here and there but I craved more because I just loved these two characters so much.
**I received an ARC of this book and this is my voluntary review.**
