Back to You
That being said, I have to admit that while this book was ok, yes, nothing wrong with it at all...that is just it. It was OK.
This is a second chance love story for Vaughn Hurley and his model ex-wife Kelly. They seemed like the perfect ...more
Kelly Hurley is a successful entrepreneur, former model, wonderful mother and ex-wife to one very famous rancher-rock star Vaughn Hurley who shattered her heart. It’s been eight years since their divorce and she’s ready to move on and marry a solid, reliable man. But is he the right man for her?
He knew it was selfish and self-serving, but he still callou ...more
Lauren Dane has always been my go-to/one-click author. Anything she puts out I'm all over it. I adored this series and getting to see each of the Hurley brothers get their HEA. I have been waiting to get Vaughan and Kelly's story. It was obvious from the hints in prior books that their story would be an emotional journey. Boy was it!
While I enjoyed this book I was also exhausted by being in Kelly's head so much. Her hesitation to let Vaughan back into her heart was totally w ...more
This story just reinforces my fear of this lack of true apology. Vaughn never truly apologized for his behavior. He simply tried to excuse his behavior by saying he was young and stupid and ...more
The blurb made this sound like a real angsty, second-chance love story. Well, I was half right. It is indeed a second-chance love story but I found it lacking. I was looking for more emotion. I dunno. I just found myself skimming a lot. And I couldn't connect with Kelly at all and Vaughn was just meh. I loved Maddie and Kinsey, ...more
Hero is immature, spoiled, cheater, liar, coward, and irresponsible. They are divorced for 8 years and she plans to marry another guy, then suddenly he wants the family back.
He cheated on her with a groupie and made sure she witnessed everything and even let the family think the worst about her. He did not dare say that it was all his fault, he was a coward. The family treated her very poorly.
I like our heroine, she's a hard-working woman and a great mother. ...more
I should mention that I really really hate Vaughan. Not just because the concept of cheating in general infuriates me, let's put that aside and focus on what a complete piece of shit he ...more
Back to You (The Hurley Boys, #3) by Lauren Dane
OVERALL RATING: 4
WHAT I LOVED:
Although romance is definitely the main theme of this book, I absolutely adore how it also focuses on the dynamic between Vaughan and his family. It shows how strong there bond is that despite some misconceptions they still love each other.
I love how Vaughan and Kelly has grown from how they were eight years ago. ...more
In 54 pages (was actually 49 pages due to ridiculous ...more
BACK TO YOU is an intoxicating, story about a second chance at love. Kelly has been divorced from Vaughan, a famous rock and roll star for eight years and they have two young daughters together. She has just accepted a marriage proposal from Ross, a solid and steady guy who is the opposite of Vaughan. Although Kelly still loves Vaughan, she knows things will never work out between them and with Ross she can have a stable life, which is something she never had with Vaughan....more
This is the story of Kelly and Vaughan, a couple who had a whirlwind romance, got pregnant, then married all within a short time period. Vaughan is a rock star (which I will get to in bit) and Kelly was a famous model. They split up after the birth of their second child when Kelly caught him cheating on her. During the coarse of the novel, Vaughan now realizes what he lost both with Kelly and b ...more
too much missing and characters that just didnt connect. Very slow and a long storyline that really took too long to "get there". A number of times I had to backtrack to re-read something that didnt make sense how the sentence was worded. At times I felt that this wasn't the usual from Lauren Dane. I felt she was missing.
for someone who was meant to be a major rock star Vaughn came across more like a kicked puppy. I expected more from him. Stonger - af ...more
I've finally come to the end of the road with the Hurley Boys and I'm not quite sure how I feel about it. I have given quite a bit of thought to finding some of her other contemporary romances, however (I really want to read Lush (Delicious #3) Damien + Mary's story). I've really enjoyed my time with the Hurleys. For the most part.
I really, really wish that Back to You was book two in the series and not the final. Back to You doesn't have anywhere ...more
However Dane did something really interesting with this book. It was not a let's fall in love again book. It was a book about parenting. The sacrifices ...more
Full review to come at www.thebookpushers.com
Much better than book #1... I had no desire to read book #2 because both characters seemed annoying from book#1 ... I decided to give this one - the 3rd in the series - a try, because it is about second chances and finding love the second time around. It was cute! And the "second chance" thing worked,,, While i really hated what the hero did and what the reason for the divorce initially was, i think he has come a long way and manned up in the 8 years they've been apart.
Solid romantic read . ...more
In The Best Kind of Trouble and Broken Open we see glimpses of the subtle tension that exists between Vaughan Hurley and his ex-wife, Kelly. The ex-wife that everyone in his family treats poorly because they view her as a gold-digger who got preggers by their successful so ...more
I would think that this would be a bit of a difficult book for some people to connect with because of the subject matter, divorce and reconciliation. I have found that the reconciliation part can be very hard for people on the outside to understand. I'll admit that I've had some personal experience where all of this is concerned and therein lies the di ...more
I was really curious about how she'd reunite a divorced couple--worried, frankly--but man, that just worked for me. I liked the kids. I liked that it was a process. I liked that they worked both on their family and their relationship. I liked how goddamn adult they were when facing their pasts. I just really liked this so, so much.
♥ KELLY & VAUGHAN ♥
We all remember Kelly & Vaughan from the previous books in the Hurley Boys series ... and now - kind of at the same time as Ezra & Tuesday's story is taking place, we finally get to hear about Kelly & Vaughan.
We knew that they were married once - back when they were really young - and they had two adorable daughters - but somehow they ended up divorced and all of Vaughan's family seem to hate Kelly now. But of course that's all Vaughan's fault, he never really ...more
