Come Back to Me

The story in this audiobook shows the strength you have even when you think you have nothing left to live for. I loved this book and it's hard to pause and put it down.

Undecided about Blake 🤔

First off I did enjoy most of this book. It's high on the drama and some of the characters are not very likable. Fortunately Adriana the heroine of this story is a admirable character with tons of strength. After loosing so many people in her family from various deaths.. It's a wonder this woman didn't fall apart. Her evil witch of a sister Alexis wasn't a tragic loss for me.
But dealing with all this tragedy on her own was a hard to listen to.

I'm on the fence with Blake he fakes his own death stays gone for 4 year's all while constantly professing his love for Adriana. I feel like I need a pair of boots to navigate my way through all of Blake's far fetched BS. I mean I get why he left, but come on.. if he loved Adriana so much, why didn't he come back when she really needed him? I feel like he had opportunitie's that he just didn't take. And then I have to address the way he came back in her life well, that was a bit of a unrealistic 💊 to swallow. The chances of a situation in real life happening this way is probably about the same chance you have of winning the lottery lol. For a while the only good thing Blake had in his favor was the fact that he was celibate while he was away.

Though it was hard for me to warm up to Blake, I will say that what his character lacked in compassion for his wife he more than made up for between the sheets lol. To be so melancholy and dramatic this book did have some pretty steamy scenes in it (I'm certainly not complaining about that). Blake's uber hot bedroom antics definitely earned him a few brownie points with me. Yeah.. my ears were seduced by the sex and it made me want to foget what I didn't like about his character.

The narration was great! Lacy And Logan did a very good job acting out the characters with plenty of emotion and feeling. Lacy has a soft pleasant voice while Logan's is deep and sexy they complement each other perfectly.
This is my first Kathy Coopmans book though, I didn't care for all the characters.. I do like her writing style and will definitely be buying more of her book's in the future. I own a ton of book's and somehow this talented author had escaped my attention. I was gifted this book in exchange for my honest review. I wish we would have got more out of the epilogue, but I still think it was worth the time spent listening.

The narrators are great! The story? Not so much.

Okay, so I hate doing bad reviews. I try to find the positive in a book because I know bad reviews hurt.

So, let me focus on the positives:

-the narrators did a great job. I love Logan McAllister and Lacy Laurel, which is why I grabbed this audio in the first place.
-.............


Yeah, I'm out of positives. I wanted to like this, I really did. I just didn't. The characters annoyed me. I got tired of hearing the same thing out of their mouths. Oh, he left me, I can't forgive him. I left her to protect her, I will get her back. I just want to see her naked. I can't be with him because he lied. My sister is the most important person ever no matter how often she screws me over. Blah, blah, blah.

I cant' do it when the book constantly repeats the same mantras. Yeah, they may have used different wording, but it was a book full of the same things.

You may like this story. Don't let my review keep you from reading it. Honestly, maybe it just wasn't my day for romance. I did just come off a fantasy high. Maybe this wasn't the right book to follow up that epic-ness. I will never know. I do know I won't be picking up any more Kathy Coopmans books though.
But if this is your jam, if a husband faking his death to protect his wife is what you want to read about, then this book is for you.
If reading about a woman who is devoted to her druggie, lying sister is for you, then this book is one you should read.
If coming face to face with your dead husband and then denying you still love him--despite just going on about how much you love him--is your thing, then Come Back to Me is the second chance for you.

BUT THE NARRATORS ARE GOOD, I'm not narrator hating here.

Good story line

Lacy Laurel did an amazing job with her narration. Logan's part seemed to be computerized. The story line was so interesting that I continued to listen. I would recommend because the story was good, surprising at the end. May need to adjust speed on the male part.

Repetitive story and just couldn't get into it

Come Back to Me by Kathy Coopmans sounded really great from the summary. Unfortunately, it didn't wow me like I had been hoping. I found the story to be slow and repetitive and I didn't care for Blake at all. Blake put Adriana through the ringer and seems kind of unconcerned about that small fact. You know, the fact that he faked his own death and let her think he'd been dead for the past four years. So when they meet back up, Blake comes in and is like-Hey! That's my wife. I'm getting her back. Adriana is like-no, maybe, no, maybe, maybe, maybe, yes! Halfway through the book, almost four hours into it, and I feel like this first half could have been compressed into about an hour to an hour and a half max. Again, I just really don't like Blake at all. He's a jerk and I don't really care what happens to these characters. Adriana could have had a decent story, but unfortunately, she married Blake and not someone more interesting and not so jerky.

Lacy Laurel and Logan McAllister did a good job with the narration. Ms. Laurel does have a younger voice, as some reviews said she sounded nasally and young. This doesn't bother me, as I felt her voice fit well with Adriana's character. Mr. McAllister's Blake on the other hand, I wasn't as crazy about, hence the one star loss on narration. I think Mr. McAllister is very talented, but listening to him as Blake, there were many parts that Blake just sounded like a pompous a**. I'm thinking that likely affected my view of Blake as well and perhaps if it had been read a bit differently, I wouldn't have judged him (Blake) quite so hard? I still think much of my dislike of Blake is straight up due to the writing though. Mr. McAllister did just fine with the female voices though.

My recommendation would be to listen to the audio sample and make sure that you actually like the narrators voices before you purchase, because this seems to be a point of complaint for some listeners. If you like the narrators voices and think the story is something that you'd like though, give it a listen! Not every book is going to satisfy every listener. I was voluntarily provided this free review copy audiobook by the author, narrator, or publisher for an honest review.

I loved it!!

Kathy Coopmans was not lying when she said this is her most emotional book to date. Oh my goodness I was completely overwhelmed with emotions, both good and bad, when I read this book. If you’ve read the blurb, which you should, then you know this book is going to be emotional and completely gut you. I couldn’t believe how one person could suffer so much loss and still be the strong person that she is. That was what was so wonderful about this book. As much as our main character Adriana has lost and is grieving, she stays strong. I wanted to be mad at our leading man, Blake, but there was no way possible. He too suffered horrible loss and his love was never ending. It was that love that made him make the choices he did. All throughout the book you will hear the phrase “come back to me,” and this lets you know just how strong a love and just how strong the pull is to make things as they should be. A true love never gives up! 5 beautiful emotional stars!!

The narrators were wonderful and really brought the story to life!

Blake and Adriana

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

yes I would but I would also recommend that you listen to the audio sample first.

Did the narration match the pace of the story?

No they did not.

Any additional comments?

I had a hard time with this audio. The women narrator was very nasally and I just had a hard time listening to her. I am sorry. I hate to say that but it took me weeks to finish this book because of it.

Good narration. Confusing and unbelievable story

I enjoyed Lacy Laurel’s narration of Come Back to Me. Her depiction of Adriana, the heroine, as a woman drowning in her grief is spot on. Logan McAllister’s voice was wonderful to listen to.

However good the narration may be, the story itself is lacking. And I think the narration highlights areas where the book could have been improved upon.

The biggest challenge I had in believing this story was that the reasons for separating Blake and Adriana become somewhat of a non-issue once they are reunited. Poor explanations, unbelievable reasons and a lack of worry about retribution take a back seat. Worse, if it wasn’t for a chance meeting, Blake had no intention of seeking out Adriana, so his attitude of ‘we will be together because I say so’ rings false.

Adding to this is the confusion of both Blake’s and Adriana’s recollections of past conversations while in the present. Several times I had to rewind the audio because I thought I had missed something. That wasn’t the case. Sure, the background information was important in trying to understand people’s actions but it was introduced at the wrong time.

come back to me

overall book was good. there are times where you just want to slap him for not giving her a option before he came up with a fake death. what if she wanted to go on the run with him ?? felt so bad for her that he put her through hell amd back, made her cry and suffer loss. But once she forgave him and knew the whole story the book got really good with hot, steamy, sex between the two!! thank you for letting him be a hero who didnt have sex with any other woman and not a loser who would think twice about cheating on hid wife! i was given a copy of this book for free at my request and voluntarily left this review!

Good Listen

This was a really good second chance romance which is told in dual POVs.

This is a story about loss and finding the strength to deal with what life throws at you. This is also a story is about hope, forgiveness and betrayal.

I really liked the chemistry between Adriana and Blake and Logan McAllister & Lacy Laurel did a great job narrating and conveying this.

Review.

This is a very good story, I like this author and intend to read and listen to more of her work. The presenters are excellent, I always prefer a male and female presenter reading but I know that is not always possible due to cost. In this case having both works really well and makes all the difference.
