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.

A second chance is all it takes

The narrators are so stinking good on this they deserve top billing here.

This book is a good mix of rip you heart out, mace your face, kick you in the feels heartbreak and white hot passion. Adriana and Blake could melt the pants right off you.

Adriana is stronger than anyone should have too be. The meet cute between the characters is a fantasy I want to be a part of. But did I mention the tears?! Don’t listen while driving. You need wipers for you eyes. And Blake, oh Blake you were so very close to perfect.

I would recommend this for fans or second chance romance

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.

Love is enough

Kathy Coopmans story is devastating! A second chance at love story, Come Back to Me is an emotional web of grief, heartbreak, loss and redemption. Lacy's narration was amazing. She truly enhanced this book journey.

Author: Kathy Coopmans
Format: Audio
Narrators: Lacy Laurel and Logan McAllister
Genre: Romance, Second Chance
Standalone: Yes
Part of a Series: No
POV: Adriana and Blake
Steam Level: Slow Burn to Steamy
4.5/5

A second-chance romance with a twist. Adriana's pain and loneliness is palpable. Dealing with her sister's addiction and so much loss Adrian a continues to push forward and not give up. Kathy Coopman creates a strong yet vulnerable character in Adriana. The way she describes the push and pull, ups and downs of loving an addict is heartbreakingly realistic. Kathy Coopmans does a great job demonstrating how Blake had to live and struggle with his leaving and why made such a great story. Past and present combine to create a stronger future if Adriana and Hunter can survive the demons of what separated them in the first place.

I received this audiobook for free from Audiobook Obsessions. This is my honest and voluntary 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.

Adriana and Blake!

Adriana has endured more loss than anyone should have to, but she is strong and resilient and fights through the pain and despair with the help of her best friend. When she finds our she has inherited a house from her grandmother she decides that a fresh start is what she needs.

Blake has loved Adriana from the first moment that he saw her. He thought nothing could come between them but when left with an impossible choice he chose to protect her by faking his own death. Four years later fate brings them together once more and he is determined to convince her that they belong together but with the past standing between them will this be their second chance or is the pain too much to overcome?

This is a story about forgiveness, healing and second chances filled with emotion, angst and heat. I received a complimentary copy of the audiobook and thought the narrators were a good fit for the characters and the emotion of the story. 🎧AudiobookObsession🎧

Emotional listen

This was such a beautifully emotional romance. When I read this book it broke me but that was nothing compare to listening to it as the narrators brought all the emotions to life and broke my heart even more.

Told in dual POV and with two brilliant narrators. Kathy Coopmans has done an amazing job with this story. she has brought us two beautiful broken characters that have so much love for each other its beautiful and painful to watch considering what happens to them. Sometimes love isn't enough but it can also heal and rebuild if you get the chance <3

A 5 star listen for sure!!

I love Kathy Coopmans writing! She write such wonderfully beautiful stories with complex storyline and characters!

This one, deals with second chance love. Adriana has lost everything. Her parents died when she was 18, her sister couldn’t deal with their deaths and turned to drugs and alcohol, her husband dies in a car accident, her sister commits suicide in her home and then her grandmother, the only person she has left, dies as well. She is going through the motions of life, but not really living.

She moves to Michigan, where her grandmother, unbeknownst to her had a house built and left it to Adriana.

Also unbeknownst to her, her husband Blake, is still alive and living in the city she’s moving to. She is furious when she finds out he’s alive.

What happened that made Blake leave her? Why did he never let her know?

There are many secrets that have kept them apart. Can they overcome them? Will they find their way through them and make their way back together?

This book is a wonderful listen and worth every minute of listening time! I give it 5 stars (Jewels). I recommend it highly!!!

Logan McAllister and Lacy Laurel do excellent work with the characters in this! They are wonderful together!

Emotional!

I have had such a hard time reviewing this book. I really enjoyed the story, and it held my attention from the beginning to the end. It had twists and turns that I didn't expect. I didn't really love Adriana or Blake, though, and actually found myself annoyed with both of them at times. Both characters were flawed and had lost so much in the last few years. I understand why Blake did what he did but he probably could have done things a little different. Logan and Lacy did a great job bringing these characters to life.

Touching selfishness

I have to start out this was a trigger for me, that I never knew would be. My husband passed away from something similar to what happened in the book. With that being said Adriana and Blake’s story was amazing. Even though Blake had to leave to protect his wife he never stopped loving her. When fate had it, they met again and were able to show their souls. I am so thankful that my two favorite narrators preform this amazing story.

Second chance romance after tragic losses

This was hard to listen to at the beginning as poor Adriana had suffered so many losses, more tragedy in her life than I think I've read in any other book. However, this made Blake's redemption that much sweeter, I loved it when he came into the story and back into her life. Blake and Adriana made me cry, sigh and a little 'hot and sweaty'! Lacy did a great job narrating with so much of the feeling and heartbreak coming through in her voice, Logan took me a while to feel him as Blake but after settling in to his voice I liked his narration. If you love second chance romance with a lot of back story and a twist then you will love this. #AudiobookObsession

don't go in blind

I went into this book completely blind and I wish I had read the blurb first , I loved the story but it was a little confusing until I read the blurb , then It made a lot more sense , it was a great story , it was heartbreaking and I felt so bad for Adriana but she was a strong woman who overcame such heartbreak , and the love story that followed was beautiful .
the narrators were brilliant and made you really feel the emotions and like you knew the characters .
