Rating : 4 ‘Second Chances’ Stars
My Views : This book was an emotional whirlwind. The characters are fucked up, they will make you cry, they will make you bang you head on your kindle and they’ll make you scream like a Banshee with their stupid decisions. But this will lead us their HEA.
Style of writing : A. Meredith Walters is an author who paved her way to my heart through her outstanding writing and story. In ‘Follow Me Back’, her writing made me smile, cry, laugh and sometimes all ...more
"We can't go back to who we were.To what we were.
But maybe...we could try to be something better."
The truth is that this series isn't my favorite because I didn't connect with the characters in the first book. It really perplexed me and I couldn't justify many of their choices! However, I wanted to know how the story would continue and if Maxx and Aubrey will end up together.
This book takes place where the previous leave us, Maxx is rehab while Aubrey tries to make her life and start ...more
** "Follow me Back" is the sequel to "lead me Not" so in order to follow the story, this series will need to be read in order **
Love was ruthless. Love was pitiless. Love was cruel. Love fucking sucked.For those of you who read "Lead me Not," you'll know that it wasn't a particularly easy book to read... but then a book that centres around addi ...more
A. Meredith Walters is a fantastic writer – I have loved her prior books and although I am not a fan of this series, her talent still shines as a writer on these pages.
So what it really was that did me in was Aubrey. Her behavior drove me crazy. She was an enabler through nearly this ...more
This book is the follow up to the emotionally intense Lead Me Not, leading on directly from that devastating ending as Aubrey and Maxx fight to drag themselves out of the mess they were left in.
Beware that this review will contain spoilers for the first book.
Aubrey and Maxx’s tumultuous love story began when Maxx attended a substance abuse therapy group that Aubrey was co-facilitating as part of her College studies. Their strong attraction developed into soul-deep love as they threw them ...more
I have been waiting for this one to release, as the first one, Lead Me Not left us with Maxx overdosing and Aubrey devastated. This picks up right after that. Since it's told from both of their POV, we know what's going on in their lives, but of course neither one of them knows what the other is thinking or feeling.
Maxx admitted himself to rehab. He knew the two most important people in his life; his brother Landon and his love Aubrey, have made the decision to cut him out of ...more
Review original post:
When I read Lead Me Not I got into a bubble full of intensity and emotions. But when I got my hands on Follow Me Back, I realized that I haven’t seen anything yet. The first book swept off my feet literally and the second book just left me…… I don’t even know how it left me!
My fall in love with Maxx and Aubrey’s story was instant! Poof! In a blink of an eye I was soaring in a world of utter ...more
Let the book hangover begin! Oh how I have been waiting to get my hands on this book! Follow Me Back is one those books that makes a lasting impression. It is one of the stories that has become a part of me, and that will be staying with me for quite a while.
Follow Me Back picks up right where Lead Me Not left off. Aubrey is lost. She is devastated. Aubrey’s relationship wi ...more
AUDIOBOOK REVIEW: 5 STARS
O. M. F. G. This book broke my heart in every possible way. I knew this was going to happen because when I read/listened to Lead Me Not (Read my review here) I had a hard time reading it, loving the characters was so hard for me, but I couldn't help it but loving them so much. Their story was really cruel, they had to live through a lot and ending up together was just inevitable. That’s why I was so anxious about this book, because the cliffhanger from book one was aw...more
4 - 4.5 Stars
I enjoyed these two books more than I thought I would. It wasn't action packed drama, but I related to the characters and would like to have this story continued; both with Aubrey and Maxx, and also the side characters like Renee and Brooks.
Aubrey and Maxx left me reeling at the end of Lead Me Not, and since then I’d been anticipating Follow Me Back. These two were so very broken had experienced more than any couple should have to endure. I bled for them, but by the end of Lead Me Not, I felt hope that they would get their much deserved happy ending. This brings be to Follow Me Back and the conflicting feelings I felt for these characters and t ...more
This is the second (and I think final) book in this series. If you haven't read the first book, you need to because the two books definitely need to go together because they make up a single story. Also, this review will contain some minor spoilers for the first book so stop reading it now if you haven't read that first one.
This book picks up where the first book left off...with Maxx going to rehab. His brush with death has opened Aubrey's eyes too. She can't be his crutch and support ...more
When I finished Lead Me Not, I was an emotional wreck. Never before had I felt so conflicted on the future of two characters. I loved both Maxx and Aubrey, and even more than that, I loved their love for one anothe ...more
Picking up where “Lead Me Not” (book 1 in this series) leaves off, “Follow Me Back” follows the lives of Aubrey Duncan and Maxx Demelo as they both struggle to put back ...more
Follow me BACK actually picks up where Lead me not leaves off, that by itself is an incredible feat. I love when an author starts up right where they left off instead of fast forwarding it. It makes it so much easier to fall into the story that way.
These books are not books for the faint, while I don't consider them dark, they are ...more

Maxx and Aubrey's challenging love story continues in the second book of the Twisted Love series. The author provides enough information so that this book could be read as a standalone. However, I would suggest reading the series in order to get a better understanding of the relationship between the two main characters.

Follow Me Back was a fantastic conclusion to the Twisted Love series.
I really wanted to write a review to do it justice but not only am I lost for words right now, i’m in the middle of exams so I will write one when i re-read the series.
For now, here are some songs that I listened to when reading Follow Me Back

I had always heard such good things about A. Meredith Walters and unfortunately, until now, had not really had the chance to read one of her many works. Of course, when given the opportunity to read the Twisted Love series, I jumped at the chance. While I enjoyed Maxx and Aubrey's story in the first book, Lead Me Not, this book, Follow Me Back, was the book that I really fell for and connected with. Maxx's struggle and determination struck a chord and stayed with me throughout and l ...more

Lead Me Not was an excellent story, and I was so excited to continue this duology with Follow Me Back. These two books must be read in order as the second book continues the story of Aubrey and Maxx. Follow Me Back is told in the dual perspectives of the main characters and begins with Maxx entering in to a drug rehab program for 30 days. He is battling his addiction, and wants to heal for himself, as well as for Aubrey and his younger brother, Landen. In the meantime, Aubrey has bee ...more

Holding on to him had always been hard. But losing him was worse.”
“I want you to leave, Maxx, but I need you to stay. Please.” My lips trembled. “I’m such an idiot. I want the one thing that can hurt me the most. But I can’t help it. You’re in my blood, Maxx. You’re everywhere. In everything. I can’t escape you. I don’t want to escape you. You’ve destroyed me. But I want you to put me back together. Can you do that? Can you make everything right again?”
… “I will if you let me … I will do everything I can to make it up to you. I swear it, Aubrey.”
