It's all matchmaking fun and games until somebody gets hurt...
Selena Ainsley would be perfectly content never returning to her hometown of Long Island, and she'd be just fine never seeing the love of her life James Montgomery either. Ten years after a horrific accident destroyed both of their lives, Selena is coerced by her BFF to return to Long Island to help plan their high school reunion.
Now a detective, James is pretty sure he's finally made something of his life. He's regretted every second of the last 10 years, being away from his soul mate and the only woman he's ever loved. Selena broke his heart all those years ago, but if he has his way, the two of them will be able to pick up where they left off before life turned tragic.
RETURN TO YOU is book 4 in the Montgomery Brothers Series, and it's not about a Montgomery Brother. It's cousin James' turn, y'all! After a few raunchy books, I found this one to be a nice vanilla read with a sweet feel to it. Selena and James definitely had chemistry and were meant to be together, though I found him to be a rather unlikeable MC and really couldn't connect with either of them. It was a bit disappointing that the sex scenes were glossed over, especially given the fact that sex during their first relationship played a huge role in their lives.
I was disappointed at the reasons James left and stayed away from Selena. He was terribly selfish and couldn't get past his own insecurity. He blamed her for years when, if he would've just thought logically or perhaps talked to someone close to her, they could've been together. His weirdly random caveman episodes also didn't sync with the sweet and gentle man in the rest of the book. The other thing that I didn't care for was the ping-ponging POV--from James to Selena to Kent to Jen to grandma to random future SIL. It was just too damn much when there wasn't any smooth transitions between them.
Bottom line: RETURN TO YOU is a somewhat charming read, though you may not fall in love with the hero.
