Review & Giveaway: Bring Me Back by Micalea Smeltzer!

Publication date: 24th April 2016
Paperback edition: -
Source: Kindle
Rating: 5 stars
I could have put the typical blurb here.
Boy meets girl.
They fall in love.
Live happily ever after.
The end.
But this isn’t THAT story.

I knew about this book for quite a while before the author surprise released it! I was asked by the author near the middle of April if I would like to read an ARC of this book to give her feedback, and I was sworn to secrecy, so I couldn't mention this book at all lol! I started this book as soon as I received my ARC and I couldn't put it down until I had finished it! It only took me like three sittings to read as well! The plot was also amazing! It will break you as you read it, but it will also give you hope and make you appreciate the people you're surrounded by! I also cried several times at the plot and I did have tears running down my face for the majority of it! It was very sad and emotional, but also amazing and very uplifting! There were quite a few twist and turns too! I also don't want to say too much about what actually happens in the plot as it's something you should experience yourself, and the synopsis doesn't tell you a thing about what happens in it, so I'm going to leave it there before I end up writing a spoiler lol! The characters were also amazing and very easy for me to connect with! Blaire was the main character, and at the beginning of this book she was in the perfect relationship and she had the perfect fiancé and the perfect life! She then breaks down and struggles to get back to the woman she once was! I loved Blaire's strength! She was someone to admire and she always tried her best, even when she was struggling! I just loved Blaire in this book! She worked hard and she deserved to be happy! My heart did go out to her, but she came such a long way in this book, which I loved! Ben was the fiancé of Blaire, and Ben was the perfect fiancé! He was always there for Blaire and he supported her in everything that she did! Their relationship was beautiful and very, very loving! It was also very easy to see the amount of love between the two of them! Ben also did small things for Blaire that were very beautiful too! I loved the whole paper crane thing between them! It was very sweet! Ryder was also another character in this book that helped Blaire a lot on her journey to find herself again! Don't worry, there's not a love triangle between Blaire, Ben and Ryder or anything like that lol! Ryder was a guy that had been through a lot, but had come out stronger on the other side! I loved how much he supported Blaire and that he was always there for her! It was exactly what Blaire needed to find herself again! This book was only written from Blaire's point of view, which I can completely understand! It was only right that it was written from Blaire's and not someone else's as well! I'm going to assume that this book is a standalone! I mean, I could see potential for books for a few female secondary characters, but Blaire's story is finished and the ending to her story was also perfect and left at the perfect place! I would also completely understand if the author didn't give the female secondary characters books! The cover for this book is also stunning! I loved it as soon as I saw it! It suits the book perfectly and actually makes more sense after you read the book too! Big thank you to Micalea for an ARC of Bring Me Back!
