Bring Me Back by Jennifer Collin
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.
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.
