* REVIEW* "Back To Reality (Back To Life #2)" by Danielle Allen

Reviewer: Kaylene

Rating: 5 Stars


This book was as captivating from the beginning as the first book in the series.  Sahara is lost in her own world of pain and hurt, when she has more problems choosing between the Love of her life Emmanuelle (Manny) or the Love of her life Tyree (Ty).  Yes that’s right, it’s a love triangle of epic proportions.  Sahara reacts to pressure and tragedy in the only way she knows, she runs, runs away from the people she loves and basically her reasons are always that she is doing it for them. 

Thankfully in this book Sahara finally seeks counseling and there does seem to be some light at the end of the dark tunnel she is travelling.  She also befriends the first “real” friend in her life since the tragedy of the accident all those years ago.  Ben unfortunately turns out to be something less than that and things are not always what they appear to be.   I found that part of the book quite sad, as I really thought she has found a true friend.

Emily, Sarah’s best friend and Manny’s sister is getting married and of course Sahara is excited, but it’s a very hard road for Sahara to travel.   Sahara finally figures that she wants to be with the Love of her life, Manny but of course another tragedy befalls them and she runs away again.

The ending is blunt but I really liked it, Sahara chooses the man she loves and there is a bit of a shock as well.   I thought the ending was a little too final, I turned my kindle over hoping there were a few more pages just to tie off the ending a bit more. 

I was emotionally invested in this book the whole way through, and at times I even felt a tear or two.  These books are awesome and this book did not disappoint me. I would definitely recommend this read to others.

Her past: Emanuel Mills was her first love. The guitar playing, adventure seeking, IT whiz was everything she ever wanted.

Her present: Tyree Barker was her last love. The cultured, educated, successful entrepreneur was everything she needed.

But when Sahara Lee’s past and present collided, a series of events occurred that changed her life forever, leaving her future up in the air.

As a college freshman, a tragic accident changed the course of Sahara’s life. Ten years later, just when she started putting her life back together, Sahara’s world was rocked again due to a similar accident.

Heartbroken and guilt ridden, Sahara fell into old, familiar habits before quickly realizing that she wasn’t the same Sahara Lee anymore. Unable to live a lonely, loveless, isolated life anymore, Sahara decided that the way she coped before wasn’t going to work this time around.

Time didn’t heal her wounds, but forgiveness might
