Book Review: Take Me Back

 TakeMeBack_FrontCoverWe fell in love on a beach, got married in paradise, and I carried her off into the sunset. It should have been perfect, but saying “I do” doesn’t guarantee a happily-ever-after.

Two years later, I barely recognize either of us behind the walls we’ve built.

It’s time to bring it full circle. Back to a tropical paradise. Back to find out if we can still make this work.

I’m not willing to give her up, but to save us, I have to risk everything.

Two damaged people.

Countless secrets.

The fight of our lives.

We might be broken, but we’re not done.

“When the incentive is a gorgeous blonde I want more than my next breath, I think there’s a good chance I could rise to the challenge.”

From  the blurb, I wasn’t entirely sure what to expect with this story. I knew it was going to be a second attempt at love, but that’s really all we were given. Trust me when I tell you that’s all you want when you dive into this story. My review is going to be brief because there is so much I can’t tell you without ruining the experience for you.

First, I will say Kat and Dane are every troubled marriage. They have secrets, baggage, and they have ignored their problems for so long that now it’s like they’re just polite strangers living in the same vicinity of each other. It was refreshing to see an ordinary, everyday issue addressed with such clarity. I felt like Meghan did a great job of portraying the frustration and insecurity that goes along with finding your marriage on the rocks.

Then, just as soon as you think you know what’s up, in true Meghan fashion … you don’t. When all the secrets have been revealed, you find that maybe you didn’t know so much after all. You also understand completely why so many of the secrets were kept, even though they didn’t particularly need to be.

I will say there were some parts that weren’t my favorite — flashing back and forth from  past to present (although, this was done in a way I could keep track of where I was), some of the issues seemed to be resolved a bit quickly for my liking, and just some basic style issues that didn’t agree with me. But, overall this is a great story that will be enjoyed by many. Interesting storyline, complex characters, and just enough action to move beyond your basic “love story.”
