“People say to appreciate the life you have because things can always be worse, but how can you do that when your life is the kind everyone else compares theirs to in order to make themselves feel better? I hoped and prayed so many times for as long as I can remember for things to be different, for my life to be different, but when it finally happened, and my life changed, ...more

I LOVED this book! This is the first thing I've ever read by Stephanie Summers but I'll be looking for more in the future. It starts as a high school romance between Evie and Jet. But because Jet's father is a crime lord, Jet knows he has to leave Evie so that she won't get hurt. After 10 years, they meet on the side of the road when Evie's car dies and Jet stops to help her. This book is the story of their fight to be together.

What an unexpected pleasure this was! This started a little slow for me, but it picked up and I'm so glad I read it ☺

Jet and Evie met in high school and fell in love. However, Jet's hone life was not the best and he broke up with Evie to protect her. Both of them suffered. Flash forward about 10 years and they run into one another. The feelings are still there. Can they make it work this time?

There were lots of twists in this that caught me unaware. I loved it!

I loved this book...it grabbed me from the get go, I loved the dynamic between Jet and Evie they were off the charts and I loved the flashbacks to the past where you get a true feel for the depth of feeling between the two.

This book has lots of facets a love story that comes from heartbreak, the suspense element to get to the full truth within multiple aspects of the story and a great cast of secondary characters both good and bad to give the story depth.

All in all this was a great read and my f

"Jet was a senior and the most beautiful boy I'd ever seen. I met Jet in study hall my junior year of high school. He was a little bit goth and just edgy enough to stand out from all the other boys who seemed to blend together."

But that is until Jet broke Evie's heart disappearing from her life without a word. And a chance encounter years later bring the two back together.

This book was really pretty good. It was my first book to read by Stephanie Summers and would love to read more by her.

I really liked the beginning of this book. Jet and Evie meet in high school and form a friendship that leads into them falling in love. Then you discover that Jet leaves Evie out of the blue with no explanation and their love is interrupted. From Evie’s perspective they were so in love it brought her to her knees when he left. I really wished we could have read more about them falling in love because it kind of fell flat. I did like the twist and turns in the story but it felt rushed. I think if ...more

⭐⭐⭐3 1/2 stars
Young Adult. Dark Romance. Crime.

Takes a little time for this fire to build and blowback on you. Chapter one was a bit choppy for me, past that, the story evened out to a certain degree. Jet and Evie have a lot of history, which is told in flashbacks throughout the book. Not my preferred style, as I find it interrupts my reading flow. True to the title, once this story fully heats up, it is explosive! The action scenes are intense and some of the best written aspects of the story

I think I fell in love with ‘reunited love’ the day I read Persuasion by Jane Austen. There’s something about past love that warms the heartstrings. As Blowback opens, a true love story begins—the kind that has you desperate to read and understand what happened to two people who obviously loved each other. The novel is intermixed with the past and present, giving you a taste of Jet and Evie’s love story and how fate turned a blind eye against them. They are blessed with a reunion that leaves the ...more

Loved this second chance story that gripped me from the beginning. Didn't take me long to read as I could not put it down. It was full of love, family loyalty, heartbreak, passion, guilt, forgiveness, and violence. Everything to keep you hooked and turning the pages.

Jet and Evie meet in High school and fall in love, Jet leaves Evie out the blue and they are not reunited until they bump into each other 10 years on.

I did love the twists and turns that went on through the book. Some you could gue

This book is what I call "ripping off a bandaid." You do not have to wait for a big built up of the characters...rip. You do not have to wait for secrets to be revealed chapters later...rip. It's a cause and immediate effect. The story centers around Evie and Jet who meet young and through a tragic life Jet disappears...only to reenter Evie's life a decade later. The story moves quickly with alternate points of views. You get to see the story through Evie's eyes and Jet's. It's a perfect balance ...more

Roller coaster ride of guessing! Full of twist & turns you never know what's coming!
I’m not a huge crime book fan but this definitely had my attention from the start. It’s a second chance romance that kept you on the edge of your seat & you didn’t want to put it down until you finished it. Jet & Evie met in high school became friends & then a couple. To protect Evie from his life, Jet walked away after his graduation breaking her heart. Ten years later, a chance encounter, Jet re

Blowback was a great read! I liked that Jet and Evie had a history from high school before they meet again years later.

Evie was in love with Jet until he went away without explanation and then got engaged. So when he comes to her rescue alongside the road one day, she makes it clear she doesn't appreciate him back in her life.

Jet is a bad mother trucker whose dad is in charge of the local criminal element. And Jet is one of his enforcers. Niall tells him who and when and Jet makes it happen - h

I really loved this book, it sucked me in and kept a hold of me till the last page then I was left wanting more. the characters just worked really well and the dynamics between them worked really well within the story. this story contains flash back sections which helped you to understand the emotions of the characters. this book has two important sections to it, firstly is the romance and second is the suspense element, which when brought together make this a fantastic read.

Evie and Jet's story starts off slowly with a few flashbacks that give some insight to their teenage relationship. Once the story gets going, the action and tension are non-stop. There are some surprising revelations that lead up to a great ending.

I absolutely loved this book. It was sexy and exciting. With just enough suspense that at the end I was like NO SHE DIDN'T. This was the first book I have read from this Author and it won't be the last. I loved the writing, the story and the characters. Such a great read!
