The Return by A.L. Parks

The Return by A.L. Parks
My rating: 4 of 5 stars



Eve is damaged, her husband made sure of that. He had an affair with his secretary and now they are divorced, Eve is off men totally, non stop, forget it!

She heads off to Colorado in a rustic house on a ski resort town to lick her wounds and reassess.

Enters Jake.

Jake has been having it pretty horrendous with his wife, nothing but arguments, so a setting now to bring Jake and Eve together.

But Eve doesn't want to fall in love, she doesn't want another relationship.......Jake has fallen in love.

The ending is not a cliff hanger of such, but you know its not over until its over.........
Can't wait for book 2.

I was given a complimentary book from the author to read and review, get my viewpoint on it.

I thought it was a lovely story, flowed well, really lovely to snuggle up on the sofa with a cup of hot chocolate and get lost in the book.


Eve Carlisle had a singular purpose - sell the rustic house nestled in the Colorado ski resort town. 

Tortured by her husband’s betrayal, the beautiful divorcee refused to give her heart to another man. But Jake had been a happy surprise, with his mesmerizing blue eyes, warm smile, strong but gentle nature – as well as being incredibly sexy.

She had convinced herself the relationship with Jake was nothing more than a fling. After all, she had a life in Newport, with society friends and a lucrative career as a family court judge. Still, Jake had a definitive hold over her, and she was finding it hard to think clearly where he was concerned. 

The demons of prior failed marriages haunt them both, and threaten to end things just as they are beginning. When Jake tells Eve he is falling in love with her, Eve refuses to believe it can last. Returning to Newport, the hollowness of her existence exposed, she must confront her fears before she loses Jake forever
