Romance author J.R. Barrett (a.k.a. Julia Rachel Barrett) does something a little different than her usual erotic romance in Come Back to Me. Herein Julia tells the story of Cara, a young woman who has a tough road to face. Raped repeatedly by her neighbor, snubbed by her mother she finds one love that ultimately ends at the hands of her parents’ and a few cops. They throw her in a mental ward where the teen faces more days of horror, yet finds one bright spot: A young intern by the name of James Mackie.
But Cara has her head all screwed on wrong by this point and though she returns home and to school, she’s already started down the wrong path. Her college years aren’t much better and find her falling headlong again and again into drug-driven and abusive relationships. James is always there, somewhere, pulling her out again, and finally—finally Cara gets it into her head that maybe he’s the one.
Until fate intervenes—again.
What happens? Well, let’s just say, Cara’s life is so turned around you wonder that you’ll have any nails left when you get to the end of her story. I felt so bad for Cara! But in a good way. I won’t spoil the story by telling you how it all works out, you’ll just have to try J. R. Barrett’s New Adult novel Come Back to Me for yourself and see—and you should! It’s incredibly good. If you’d like to add it to your to-be-gobbled—I mean, read—piles, it’s available at Amazon.
