Review: Come Back to Me by Mila Gray


In this heart-wrenching tale of love and loss, a young Marine and his best friend’s sister plunge into a forbidden love affair while he’s home on leave.

When a Marine Chaplain knocks on her door, Jessa’s heart breaks—someone she loves is dead. Killed in action, but is it Riley or Kit? Her brother or her boyfriend…

Three months earlier, Marine Kit Ryan finds himself back home on leave and dangerously drawn to his best friend Riley’s sister, Jessa—the one girl he can’t have. Exhausted from fighting his feelings, Kit finally gives in, and Jessa isn’t strong enough to resist diving headfirst into a passionate relationship.

But what was just supposed to be a summer romance develops into something far greater than either of them expected. Jessa’s finally found the man of her dreams and Kit’s finally discovered there’s someone he’d sacrifice everything for.

When it’s time for Kit to redeploy, neither one is ready to say goodbye. Jessa vows to wait for him and Kit promises to come home to her. No matter what.

But as Jessa stands waiting for the Marine Chaplain to break her heart, she can’t help but feel that Kit has broken his promise…

Riley or Kit? Kit or Riley? Her brother or her boyfriend? Who’s coming home to her?

Military romances have been a new type of novel I’ve been reading lately and I’m really enjoying the drama and heartache involved in the stories. Come Back to Me drew me in from the first page and I couldn’t stop reading to see what would happen with these characters I began to fall in love with.

Kit and Jessa were very sweet characters. Jessa is very innocent and sheltered and Kit is the first guy who catches her eye. They have a forbidden romance because Jessa is the sister of Kit’s best friend Riley. Also, Jessa’s dad doesn’t like Kit and her dad is very difficult to live with because of his own issues with PTSD.

I liked reading from the perspective of a girl who is surrounded by military men. The author did a good job of portraying the heartbreak of not knowing if the man you are falling in love with will make it back home alive. The prologue is a tearjerker and that tension over whether Riley or Kit will be a war casualty is present throughout the story.

The romance was very slow building and it worked for the story. I liked that Kit was a nice guy but his character didn’t always grab me in the same way Jessa’s did. I did enjoy how committed they seemed to one another early on and how they tried to see each other as much as possible before Kit’s deployment.

The ending was very emotional and gut wrenching. The author has a great writing style and I can’t wait to read more of her work.

Rating: 4.5/5 Stars
