Review: RETURN TO YOU by Julie Cross

The third installment of Julie Cross’s Letters To Nowhere series titled Return To You is just as engaging as the first two. As with the other two books, Julie’s writing is so emotionally charged that you feel everything the characters feel. Their pain. Their joy. Their confusion. Their loneliness.

Letters3 (2)Julie does a fantastic job with each of these short stories (Return To Sender and Return To You). There is enough mini-story in each of these to keep you interested, while continuing the overall storyline. I really enjoy each of them so much and while I really want more once I am done with each short, I am okay with where they leave off. I don’t feel as though I am completely left high and dry. There is some closure to things or at least the hint of it.

In Return To You, Jordan and Karen are still at camp and experience new highs and lows in their relationship among some other situations in their lives. TJ and Stevie play more active roles in Return To You which makes it quite entertaining. I still don’t know what I think about Stevie. I sense there is more to her than the tough-girl act she puts on. If anyone can pull it out of her it is TJ. I am curious about my feelings for him as well. While he says what he feels without much of a filter, he is still a bit of a mystery. I hope to learn more about them a bit in the future episodes. If you have already read the first two books in the series, you will really enjoy Return To You. If you haven’t yet, give it a try!  You will be taken on quite an emotional journey. It is a series like no other.

Book Summary:

How many dreams can you chase at once?

Even with bad boy, TJ, disrupting their morning workouts, Karen and Stevie’s daily battles with each other are sure to bring both of them closer to a national title at next month’s championships. It’s the kind of feud that creates winning results.

Until a fall from the uneven bars shakes Karen’s rock-solid confidence. Not only does she balk every time she so much as attempts a routine, she’s also facing all this without much support from Jordan. After receiving some bad news, Jordan’s reluctance to listen to reason causes Karen so much frustration she begins to avoid him, needing space to deal with her own issues. He needs someone to force him to make the right choice, he needs his dad to intervene and Karen knows this, but is torn between her loyalty to Jordan and her concern for her coach’s son. Even though both paths lead to the same person—Jordan—it feels like she’s choosing between two different people.

And then there’s the growing tension between TJ and Stevie. They’re obviously on the verge of either ripping each other’s heads off or ripping each other’s clothes off. It’s hard for either Jordan or Karen to tell where those two are headed. Tension is building from every possible outlet and there’s bound to be an explosion of some kind in the very near future.
