ABOUT RETURN TO YOU (Letters to Nowhere Volume 3)

How many dreams can you chase at once?

Even with bad boy, TJ, disrupting their morning workouts, Karen and Stevie’s daily battles with each other are sure to bring both of them closer to a national title at next month’s championships. It’s the kind of feud that creates winning results.

Until a fall from the uneven bars shakes Karen’s rock-solid confidence. Not only does she balk every time she so much as attempts a routine, she’s also facing all this without much support from Jordan. After receiving some bad news, Jordan’s reluctance to listen to reason causes Karen so much frustration she begins to avoid him, needing space to deal with her own issues. He needs someone to force him to make the right choice, he needs his dad to intervene and Karen knows this, but is torn between her loyalty to Jordan and her concern for her coach’s son. Even though both paths lead to the same person—Jordan—it feels like she’s choosing between two different people.

And then there’s the growing tension between TJ and Stevie. They’re obviously on the verge of either ripping each other’s heads off or ripping each other’s clothes off. It’s hard for either Jordan or Karen to tell where those two are headed. Tension is building from every possible outlet and there’s bound to be an explosion of some kind in the very near future.

My rating: 3 of 5 stars

Return to You (Letters to Nowhere, #3)(Source: I own a copy of this book.)
This is part 3 of Jordan and Karen’s story.

This was okay, but it was really short, and took a while to get in to.
This book was more about Jordan than Karen, and more about fears than gymnastics. We did find out a bit more about Jordan’s illness, which could have become more of a storyline, but the book was just too short. Karen also had something to overcome, but again, it was only just covered, because this was so short.
I think the main problem with this book was that it was like a few chapters out of the middle of a book, and the storylines weren’t developed enough. Just as I was really getting into it, it ended, which was a real shame. I really want to know what happens to Jordan and Karen next, but I want a full-length book, not these silly little snippets.
Overall; too short.
6 out of 10.
