Gavin MacCormack found the one. He fell in love. Hard. Until one night he ran out for some ice cream and came back to an empty dorm room, closets bare and nothing but a quick hand-written note saying, I’m sorry. Those two words taught Gavin the meaning of heartbreak. A feeling he never wants to encounter again. And as the lead singer of a Grammy award-winning band he’s had plenty of opportunities for casual, no-strings fun, which is just the way he likes it.
Dani Winters has had more names than birthdays. On the run with her father for nearly as long as she can remember, she’s lived her life by three rules—always plan for the worst, maintain a low profile at all costs, and never let anyone get too close. Except she broke that last rule once and her heart has never forgiven her.
One chance encounter changes everything. Seeing Dani resurrects feelings in Gavin he thought were long buried, and this time he’s not letting her disappear without getting some answers. But Dani’s life is the definition of complicated and she’s playing with fire by letting Gavin back in. When the time comes to run again, Dani needs to decide if a life without love is worth living, or if it’s time to stop running and fight.
I did things the other way round-I read this book first before I read the first two.
The way back to us wasn’t my favourite second chance romance- I’m not saying that it was bad, I actually quite enjoyed it. But to tell you the truth, the entire time I was reading this book I had the greatest sense of pity for Gavin; his undying love for Dani even after all this time.
On a lighter note, this book was written beautifully, with just the right amount of angst and suspense. I liked Dani but for me, the star of the show was Gavin, his tenderness, love and dedication towards Dani was beautiful!
All in all, a wonderful second chance romance, if not a tad ‘unfinished’ (atleast for me). Maybe an epilogue would have sealed the deal for me because after that last chapter, it felt anti-climactic and unfinished for me. Sorry!
