Review Running Back to You By, Suzanne Sweeney

cover38813-mediumJuliette Fletcher is a girl with a plan. Not one to sit back and wait for life to happen, she moves back home after graduation and begins to carve out a life for herself.

Evan McGuire is desperate for a fresh start. His career in the NFL depends on it. Years of partying and carefree living have caught up with him. After buying a beach house in need of renovations, he begins to rebuild his life and his reputation.

What Evan doesn’t expect is a chance meeting with Juliette out on an early morning beach run with her dog. A strong mutual attraction draws them together, but fear of scaring her away keeps Evan from revealing his true identity. Evan finds himself in an unfamiliar situation – forced to work harder than he ever has before to prove himself worthy of her affections.

Tragic misunderstandings and unexpected obstacles threaten to derail a fragile relationship. Someone is watching, waiting, and tormenting Juliette, desperate to destroy everything. Can they find the strength to overcome jealousy, insecurity, and fear before it’s too late?

Just ok.

The story started off really slow, too slow. It barely held my interest and it wasn’t until Evan entered the story that I became invested in it.

Running Back To You is about Jette, a 23-year-old girl (yea, what is with that name) who just graduated from college with a Baking degree (awesome) and has just moved in with her gay best friend Auggie. I wanted to like Jette but I just couldn’t, she didn’t have much of a character, and I couldn’t really relate to her. In contrast I loved Evan he was sweet, and hot, a former football player, and he really liked Jette. He was perfect. So then why couldn’t Jette see that?

I hate when the female character is the one messing up the relationship in the book. Authors do this a lot. They paint this beautiful male character, and pair them with this crazy, self sabotaging main female character. While I like to have a swoony love interest I need to also like my female lead. And I just didn’t in this book.
