Blog Tour:  Come Back to Me by Mila Gray – Review and Giveaway

In this heart-wrenching tale of love and loss, a young Marine and his best friend’s sister plunge into a forbidden love affair while he’s home on leave.

When a Marine Chaplain knocks on her door, Jessa’s heart breaks—someone she loves is dead. Killed in action, but is it Riley or Kit? Her brother or her boyfriend…

Three months earlier, Marine Kit Ryan finds himself back home on leave and dangerously drawn to his best friend Riley’s sister, Jessa—the one girl he can’t have. Exhausted from fighting his feelings, Kit finally gives in, and Jessa isn’t strong enough to resist diving headfirst into a passionate relationship.

But what was just supposed to be a summer romance develops into something far greater than either of them expected. Jessa’s finally found the man of her dreams and Kit’s finally discovered there’s someone he’d sacrifice everything for.

When it’s time for Kit to redeploy, neither one is ready to say goodbye. Jessa vows to wait for him and Kit promises to come home to her. No matter what.

But as Jessa stands waiting for the Marine Chaplain to break her heart, she can’t help but feel that Kit has broken his promise…

Riley or Kit? Kit or Riley? Her brother or her boyfriend? Who’s coming home to her?

I could’t find a trailer, so here’s a song!




MaryAnn-2015I absolutely adored the story of Kit and Jessa in Mila Gray’s Come Back to Me.  The story opens up with a cliffhanger, and then starts at the beginning, recounting the moment we read in the beginning and onward.  I loved it!  What a way to start a story…

Jessa has been crushing on her brother Riley’s best friend, Kit Ryan, for some time now.  For years, it has been one-sided…admiring him from a far until the party being held for Riley, who is on leave for a month from the Marine’s (as is Kit).  Now Jessa notices that Kit’s looks are little more lingering, his smiles a little more flirty… and when Kit admits to her that he has feelings for her, one of the most romantic, memorable romances starts to bud.

Kit does everything he can to prove to Jessa that he has the ability to be the best boyfriend in the world, and that he’s not at all the player that he once was.  The only problem?  If Jessa’s brother and father find out, he is D.E.A.D.  And why Jessa’s father loathes the very existence of Kit is a mystery to him and pretty much everyone else.  So the relationship flourishing between Jessa and Ryan is done in secret, but as we all know, when two people have a true connection, no matter how hard you try to hide it, someone will notice.  It’s undeniable!  The sparks that fly between Kit and Jessa are so electric it’s impossible to ignore.

I can’t go on!  I can’t tell you anymore!  Going beyond that will just spoil everything else altogether.  Trust me when I tell you that you need to read this book.  And when you do start, be sure to bring some tissues.  It’s one of those reads that you just can’t stop reading!  The love that starts to grow between Kit and Jessa is reminiscent to me of The Notebook…powerful, unforgettable, soul changing.  It’s one of those stories that makes you fall in love all over again, or wish that you could find a love like Kit’s and Jessa’s.

Not only is this a story about love with a capital “L”, it also deals with PTSD, which is something that is so important to deal with and talk about.  Seeing Jessa’s father trying to deal with it on his own without any professional help is a scenario that is all too real.  Again, I can’t say too much, because even the littlest details will give away the whole of the story!

Fans of emotional, heart wrenching reads will fall head over heels in love with Come Back to Me by Mila Gray.  If you love reads that will make your soul cry, don’t hesitate to grab a copy ASAP.  You have been forewarned though, dear reader…this is definitely a tear jerker and just might leave you with a super huge book hangover…
