Bring Me Back by Jennifer Collin

11:30 am 2 Comments A+ a-

Andy Evans is on the move. For six long, lonely years, he’s been running from his past, leaving his family and his life as a drug-addicted rock star far behind. His latest move takes him to the sleepy seaside town of Oamaru, New Zealand, to sell cigar-box guitars to tourists. The only running he’ll need to do will be training for half-marathon in nearby Dunedin. But when Andy sets eyes on Steampunk HQ, Oamaru's main tourist attraction, he realises his days of running might not be over, especially if a certain Steampunk fan from his past catches up with him. 

Annie Martin is on the cusp of great success. Her career as a Steampunk academic is about to take off, as long as she can convince one disagreeable, New Zealand-based Professor to sign up to the anthology she’s putting together. Thankfully, Annie is a master at maintaining her poise and few people, no matter how nasty, can rattle her. Not anymore. In fact, it’d been a good six years since anyone had gotten under her skin, after her best friend’s brother had vanished into thin air. 

When Annie finds her future career on a collision course with her secret past, Andy Evans is the last person she expects to find tangled up in the mess. With a vengeful drug dealer or two hot on his heels, and a vindictive academic determined to ruin her credibility, can Annie bring Andy back to his family before it’s too late? Annie and Andy are used to being alone, but if they don’t work together, there’ll be much more at stake than her livelihood and his sobriety. 



Hey! Here's my review.

This is the third book in the Evans trilogy, but the first one I've read. I'm sure I would have a deeper appreciation of the novel if I'd read the first two books, but Bring Me Back held it's own. I actually forgot that it was the end of a trilogy while I was reading it and didn't feel like I had missed anything.

I loved Annie and her steampunk style. I enjoyed the romantic element and the suspense kept me turning pages. Sometimes the characters listened when I yelled at them and told them what to do, but sometimes they didn't.

I received this book free from NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.
