Jordan’s Return – Book Review

Title: Jordan’s Return

Author: Samantha Chase

Publisher: Sourcebooks

Publication Date: November 20, 2011

Pages: 278

Rating: 5 stars

Synopsis: Jordan Manning has been living a hard life these days. She has two kids, who would do anything for her, especially coming out of an abusive marriage and a horrible car accident, that her ex-husband had caused. After dealing with struggles physically and mentally, Jordan decides that she needs a break, and take her kids on a little vacation in Virginia. When they arrive, Jordan doesn’t expect to see her first love, Rob Tyler, walking up the street. As they start to rekindle what they once had, will it be too much for Jordan and her kids, and will she want her kids to be put through Rob possibly leaving in the future?

Thoughts: I ate this book so quickly, I would love to read it again and soon! Rob is such a swoon-worthy character, he made my heart melt every time he something sweet. I would start smiling at the two’s interactions with each other and felt like I was there a part of their relationship. The relationship between Rob and Jordan was just as sweet between Rob and Jordan’s kids. This was such a sweet and fun read, I can’t wait to indulge in some of Samantha’s novels!
