Rating: 4 stars
Synopsis: Juliette Fletcher is a girl with a plan. Not one to sit back and wait for life to happen, she moves back home after graduation and begins to carve out a life for herself.

Evan McGuire is desperate for a fresh start. His career in the NFL depends on it. Years of partying and carefree living have caught up with him. After buying a beach house in need of renovations, he begins to rebuild his life and his reputation.

What Evan doesn’t expect is a chance meeting with Juliette out on an early morning beach run with her dog. A strong mutual attraction draws them together, but fear of scaring her away keeps Evan from revealing his true identity. Evan finds himself in an unfamiliar situation – forced to work harder than he ever has before to prove himself worthy of her affections.

Tragic misunderstandings and unexpected obstacles threaten to derail a fragile relationship. Someone is watching, waiting, and tormenting Juliette, desperate to destroy everything. Can they find the strength to overcome jealousy, insecurity, and fear before it’s too late?

When I got an email about this Blog Tour I wasn't 100% sure if I was going to sign up! I took a bit of a gamble by signing up too be honest! Running Back To You isn't a book that I would have picked up on my own! The cover is pretty and all, but it isn't enough to draw me in! Plus, this book took me a few weeks to actually get to the end of it! I found that it went a bit slow and I started losing interest in the middle and then I got pulled back in at the end! As I said the plot of this book did develop quite slow! I was expecting a bit more action in it if I'm honest! It had the potential to be explosive at the end and it sort of wasn't explosive enough to blow me away! The plot did kind of grip me more towards the end as the climax of the book reached its crescendo though! I will admit that I liked the idea of there being someone after the main character! It helped push the story along! I did have my own ideas about the person who was after Juliette and I can say that the actual person was on my suspect list! The person who it was though did surprise me! Especially their reasoning behind it! The characters were great! Juliette was the main character and I found her difficult to connect with! I'm not sure if it was because she was a bit older than me or because I felt like she didn't show a lot of emotion! She started to relax more as the book progressed though and her soft, sweet side started to come out towards the end! I sort of understood why Juliette was like this though! I mean someone was after the girl! I still liked her and I enjoyed her telling the story! Evan was the love interest of Juliette and he was hot! I loved how sweet he was with Juliette and how protective he was of her as well! Juliette and Evan made quite a hot couple! The chemistry between them was brilliant! Also, the sex scenes were pretty damn hot! From the synopsis I thought that this book was going to be in dual point of view, but it wasn't! I was a little upset by this because I would have loved to have seen some of this book through Evan's eyes! I'm not sure if I'll read the rest of this series! I probably will, but I won't read them as soon as they come out! I do see Evan and Juliette's relationship developing even more in the next book and I'm quite excited to read about it! As I said the cover for this book is pretty! It suits the story and I can see just how much now that I've read it! Big thank you to Suzanne for a copy of Running Back to You and to Quiet Crazy Book Whores for having me on the Blog Tour!
