The Way Back to Us (Love Unplugged, #3) by Jamie Howard

The Way Back to Us (Love Unplugged, #3)

Gavin MacCormack found the one. He fell in love. Hard. Until one night he ran out for some ice cream and came back to an empty dorm room, closets bare and nothing but a quick hand-written note saying, I’m sorry. Those two words taught Gavin the meaning of heartbreak. A feeling he never wants to encounter again. And as the lead singer of a Grammy award-winning band he's had plenty of opportunities for casual, no-strings fun, which is just the wa...

    Title: The Way Back To Us (Love Unplugged #3) Author: Jamie Howard Genre: Contemporary Romance Publication Date: December 12, 2017 I did things the other way round-I read this book first before I read the first two.The way back to us wasn't my favourite second chance romance- I'm not saying that it was bad, I actually quite enjoyed it. But to tell you the truth, the entire time I was reading this book I had the greatest sense of pity for Gavin; h...

    3.5 “Second chances” StarsARC via NetGalleyThank you, Swerve.This is my fifth (?) book by Jamie Howard, and I'm ready for the next one, especially since I hope (please, please) it'll be about Ben and Rachel and all the angst of loving someone for years without moving it past friendship.But while The Way Back to Us wasn't my favorite book by this go-to author, it was still entertaining.Let me just pause for a second and say I'm still in love w...

    First time, I've started reading Jamie Howard's work was by chance, I was approved by NetGalley when I picked the first book in the Love Unpligged series, in fact I was surprised that I was approved in the first place...LOLAnyway, what I love about Jamie Howard's writing is the easy flow, the effortless writing simply pulls you into the world of its, at first sight, simple but unique characters, and then you realize it's more complicated than tha...

    Copy received via Netgalley in exchange for an honest review. This was a predictable second chance romance, nothing about it excited me. I didn’t like Dani, I was just over her and couldn’t really get into the story. The secondary characters we’re more interesting to me. Overall just an okay read.

    Having read the previous books of this series and loved those books I was really excited when I found out that I had an eARC for The Way Back to Us. I can tell you that this one didn't disappoint a bit. It's not my favorite book in the series but I still loved it a lot, especially because it's a second chance romance and who doesn't love second chance romances?? I know I do... A LOT.Having read the past few books I already kind of knew Gavin but...

    **ARC provided by the author in exchange for an honest review**A little bit of mystery and suspense to go hand and hand with this fantastic second chance romance by Jamie Howard. The Way Back To Us is an entertaining continuation of Love Unplugged series, but I will note that each book can be read as a standalone. These stories of love that Jamie produces are addicting and worthy! With each book, the characters and storylines become better and be...

    I am so crazy about this Love Unplugged series. Each book is perfectly addicting and gripping to read in its own right. They all technically work as standalones, but the return on investment is so much greater if you've been along for the ride since the beginning and - man, I am so glad I've been around since the beginning.Gavin and Dani's story felt a little darker than the previous ones. There was much more suspense - more questions than answer...

    Read full review HEREI’ve loved all the books of this series so far, and this was another great installment. The writing was great once again, and I really liked that it was told in dual POV, because the story is so clouded with mystery.About the characters, I’ll admit that I liked Gavin way way more than I did Dani. But again, this was because her character is not very transparent. Yeah, she kicks ass, but I wanted just more from her. While ...

    http://celebrityreaders.com/2017/12/1...I received a free copy through NetGalley in exchange for an honest and unbiased review/opinion.4 stars — I had a bit of a harder time getting sucked into this one, but I can’t figure out if that had more to do with me and my frazzled mind, or the book… That’s always the kicker eh? Which, obviously if I still gave it 4 stars, does not mean the book wasn’t great! I just wish I had been more immersed...

    Surprisingly, The Way Back to Us managed to entertain me. There is mystery and suspense integrated in this rockstar romance, which is a big plus for me. For those who do not know, I really am into mysteries and thrillers more than YA or fantasy. I blame John Grisham for my fascination with action-themed books and Sidney Sheldon for the mysteries that I’ve always loved dissecting and solving.When the female lead character of The Way Back To Us p...

    Gavin is a singer in a famous band who is still hung up on the one that got away. For years, he's been wondering what makes Dani disappear from his life without a word making him insecure in having other relationships. Years later, he was struck dumb when a chance encounter makes him meets Dani once again in a different city. But is it just mere coincidence when she finds a job in a bar that he frequents to.The plot is predictable enough with the...

    "The Way Back to Us" is a really fantastic second-chance romance with hints of mystery. We follow Gavin and Dani in alternating first person points of view. Gavin and Dani had a passionate relationship back in college which ended when Dani disappeared without a word. Since then, Dani has been traveling around the country with her father, constantly watching over her shoulder. Gavin's band has become a hit, for which he writes and sings.Everything...

    I absolutely adored the first two books in this series, so I was ecstatic when the publisher emailed me to ask if I wanted to read and review the third one. I might have let out a little shriek of joy.Gavin wasn't one of my favorite characters in the first two books, so I was pleasantly surprised to find that this book *wasn't* about him trying to overcome his commitment issues. From page 1, Gavin is focused on Dani, and that's how I like my roma...

    Wow! The Way Back to Us is seriously good! Dani and Gavin had a serious relationship in college and one day she just vanished. When they meet again it becomes clear that neither of them has fallen out of love with the other. Their reconnection is hindered by a host of obstacles, but love is a battle worth the fight, right? Not to mention, there are a few surprises here that I didn't see coming that take this from nice second chance romance to cap...

    The Way Back to Us is the third book in Jamie Howard’s Love Unplugged series, and it's a fun and heartfelt romance with an intriguing and unexpected suspense storyline. Gavin MacCormack is the lovable, goofy lead singer of a famous rock band, but he’s not all smiles and jokes when he runs into the woman who broke his heart—his college girlfriend, Dani Winters. He thought he and Dani were destined to be together forever, but she up and left...

    I absolutely loved this book!I'm extremely picky about adult romance, so it says a lot that I'm a huge fan of every single one of Jamie Howard's romances. In the first two books in the Love Unplugged series, I fell in love with Gavin MacCormack -- particularly, his bantery bromance with Felix (star of Feeling of Forever). And I was intrigued about the mysterious woman from his past who broke his heart. So I was so excited for The Way Back to Us!W...

    I really loved this one! Gavin and Dani were such wonderful characters and I wanted their second chance to work out right from the beginning. I really enjoyed the storyline that gave an interesting twist to the usual second chance trope. The writing was great and unraveled just enough of the story to keep us interested before revealing more. When Dani disappeared without a trace in college Gavin never thought he's see her again yet here she is. W...

    This is the first book I've read by this author. I didn't really know what to expect, but the blurb sounded interesting and I love second chance glances so I couldn't resist requesting it. What I got was a pleasant surprise.I will admit when I started this book I was kind of in a funk. Nothing was holding my attention and I wasn't getting anything done during the day. Therefore, when I started this book and it also didn't make me feel better I pu...

    I loved Gavin and Dani's story. I hate I missed the first two books in this series as these gang of friends is very entertaining and fun and I am sure their books were as well. I guess now I have 2 new books on my "to-be read" list.Gavin's shock at seeing Dani as a server at a dinner he is attending sends the reader back in time to when Dani and Gavin were in college, carefree (so he thought) and in love. When Gavin wakes up to an empty bed and a...

    You've got to feel for poor Gavin. He may be an award-winning rock star, but his heart remains broken years after Dani abanoned their love, leaving only a two-word note. He thinks he will never love again, but come on. This is a romance novel! Of COURSE he will love again.Aaannnd ... of course he will love Dani again.Their "chance" encounter gives them the opportunity to rediscover each other. She has some 'splaining to do, and he has to listen a...

Full disclaimer...I didn't realize there were two previous books in this series...but, you honestly don't need them to jump right into this one!Nice quick, light read. Fun story. I want to go back and read the previous two books as this feels like a great little series. What I liked: I didn't need to read the other two books to get into this one. What I loved: Can...

    A second chance romance with a hint of mystery. Gavin and Dani are complicated to say the least. But that is what made this story. The mysterious life of Dani is just that. I don't blame Gavin's friends at all for being protective of him. Just hold onto your seats as the truth behind Dani comes out. I love how Gavin embraces his second chance with Dani and doesn't want to let her go. When you know you know. As a first time read of Jamie Howard I ...

    Jamie Howard weaves suspense and intrigue into romance effortlessly. She also adds enough heart and humor to balance the book. The banter with Gavin and his bandmates is a blast. Dani's mysterious past had me hooked from page one. The chemistry between Gavin and Dani sizzles. Loved this book!
