Sing Me Back Home (Montana Born Homecoming #1) by Eve Gaddy


Sing Me Back Home (Montana Born Homecoming Book 1)

Synopsis:


Dr. Jack Gallagher, one of Marietta, Montana's most eligible bachelors, hasn't been serious about a woman since his wife died five years ago. He's been content to date occasionally, practice medicine and raise his teenage daughter.

Then happily divorced former fashion model, Maya Parrish, moves back to Marietta, with her own teenaged daughter in tow forcing Jack to rethink his casual dates only rule. Maya, Jack's high school girlfriend and almost fiancée, may have broken his heart the night of their high school graduation, but the moment Jack and Maya meet again, all the sizzle and sparks, and then some, come rushing back.

Maya is ready to give love a second try. Jack isn't sure he can take that chance again. He knows how quickly happiness can be ripped away, leaving heartbreak in its place. Can a mad, passionate affair last or will it burn itself out as quickly as it began?

Review:

Sing Me Back Home was a light, quick read. I knew it was a short story, but I was expecting it to take longer for Maya and Jack to work things out. Instead it is like right away they start dating and falling in love and all of that. Everything happened very quickly and it is like they didn't even get to know each other again before they were in love.

Things didn't just proceed smoothly even though they went very quickly. There were some issues on Jack's end, some things he had to work through, but they were easy enough to resolve. I didn't hate this story, but I also didn't actually see the connection between the two main characters. They were attracted to each other, but I wish there would have been a bit more on the personal level to connect them more. Sure, they had dated in high school and were practically engaged, but that was a long time ago. People change. Circumstances change. They both  had been married since then and both have a teenage daughter. It would have been nice to see them actually get to know each other and see how they are different and how they are still the same. It really just felt like they had a mutual physical attraction and they once knew each other so that equalled love.

So overall not a bad read, it was just a light, quick read.
