Reviews Bring Me Back

  • Emily May
    What is it you want Layla?...YOU 1 1/2 stars. I swear I gave it my best shot. I really wanted to love this book. Paris' Behind Closed Doors kept me on the edge of my seat, but her sophomore novel The Breakdown bored me, so I figured two out of three ain't bad, right? Sorry, it's a Meat Loaf kinda morning.But this book is so CHEESY.I'll give it an extra half star for keeping me reading despite rolling my eyes every few pages, but that's the most e...

    Holy Moly! The 'Do Not Disturb’ sign was definitely displayed (mentally if not physically) while I read Bring Me Back! Seriously, if this book had been edible, I would have made myself ill devouring it! British couple Finn and his girlfriend Layla, are on their way home from a skiing trip in France when he pulls into a secluded, dimly lit area late at night to use the restroom. When he returns to the car Layla is nowhere to be found! Fast forwa...

    Addictive, fast-paced, and mind boggling!It’s been awhile since I could refer to a book as “unputdownable” but here we are. Finally! Every single theory I had about where the plot was going was given to the main character as part of his ideas at a little past the halfway point, and I was stuck there with my jaw dropped thinking, well then. This author just flipped the script and threw out everything I was thinking so where are we going to g...

    3.5 starsHave you ever read a book where you think "It was okay. I liked it." and then find yourself thinking about it and then realize that you enjoyed it much more than you initially thought? I had that experience with this book. Upon reading it, I kept thinking about it and the plot and realized that B.A. Paris pulled her plot twist off in a clever way. I also realized that there was a clue or two thrown in and although I read the words, I mis...

    Whoop whoop this authors done it again, shes brought me to my reading knees.This authors view on domestic noir is amazing, never seems to fail making my spine tingle and that hairs on the back of my neck come up on end. I always feel a chill when I read B A Paris books.Finns girlfriend went missing while they were travelling on holiday some 12 years ago.Never found. Time has moved on for Finn now, he is engaged to Emma who happens to be his missi...

    Oooooh!! Plans that most certainly go awry.A young British couple seem to be pivoting on a dangerously slippery slope that was never left behind on a skiing trip in France. Finn, an investment broker, pulls his car off the road in a secluded area in order to use the restroom facility. He leaves his girlfriend, Layla, asleep in the passenger seat. When he returns, Layla is missing. Panic-stricken, Finn searches for her. Not a sign of Layla.....not...

    Holy crap was this good!! I requested this from Net galley based on last year's The Breakdown. Which, if I recall, I began one night and couldn't put down. Which is exactly what happened again! So note to future self: if you start to read a B. A. Paris novel, don't make any plans! This started off with Finn giving his account of the disappearance of his girlfriend , Layla. From there it weaves back and forth from the night of her disappearance to...
  • Theresa Alan
    I didn’t have as much enthusiasm for this book as some other reviewers. It does start out strong. The premise is that twelve years ago, Finn’s girlfriend went missing at a rest stop on their way from a trip to Paris back to England. Now that he’s engaged to be married to someone else, suddenly there are clues that maybe his ex-girlfriend wasn’t kidnapped/murdered as Finn and the cops initially thought. There’s all sorts of page-turning ...
  • Hajar Benmazhar
    There is something about this author’s writing prowess that is incredibly addictive!“Sometimes we lie for the greater good, don’t we? I wish that’s what you had done.”This was yet another page-turner by the talented B.A. Paris. After enjoying both of her books ‘Behind Closed Doors’ and ‘The Breakdown’, I knew I had to get my hands on “Bring me Back” and I was in for a treat.As I started reading this book, I felt like I stepp...

    3.5/5 stars!BA Paris's Bring Me Back will be released on June 19, 2018, but when I received word that St. Martin's Press was sending me a review copy, I screamed and jumped for joy. If you know anything about me, you'd know that BA Paris is one of my favorite authors. She slayed me in Behind Closed Doors, she scared me with The Breakdown, and I was sure she would provoke me with Bring Me Back . Coming off the high from her first two novels, I ...

    I don’t mind suspending belief (it’s commercial fiction after all) but when I enter the realm of the ludicrous count me out.

    Thank you to St. Martin Press for sending me a copy of Bring Me Back by BA Paris. This was a fast read for me. The book has short chapters with alternating POVs which I loved. Twelve years ago, Finn and Layla were desperately in love with each other. Coming home from a vacation, Finn stops the car to use the restroom. When he walks back to the car he notices that Layla is nowhere to be found. Fast forward to current day and Finn has moved on. He ...
  • Jules
    Well, I'll be damned, this author has done it again! I loved this darkly twisted mystery thriller. Bring Me Back is a gripping psychological thriller filled with mystery, lies, dark secrets and characters you’ll be suspicious of trusting. This is definitely a book many will struggle to put down once they pick it up, so make sure you start it early in the day if you plan on getting any sleep.This story had me gripped from beginning to end. Start...
  • Liz Barnsley
    Read in one sitting this morning. Addictive as sin. Loved it even though I worked out the truth really really early on it didn't matter in the slightest because what interested me was the characters and how they acted and reacted to things. A banging good read.Full and proper review for publication. But certainly B A Paris is currently the queen of domestic noir. She just makes you keep turning turning those pages....

    I received a free e-copy of Bring Me Back by B.A. Paris from NetGalley for my honest review. Finn, a man who meets Layla, falls immediately and deeply in love with her. One day they had a fight while driving and they stopped at a rest stop so Finn could use the restroom. When Finn returns to the car, Layla is missing. Twelve years later, Finn is in a relationship with Layla's sister Ellen and he starts receiving emails and letters from someone wh...
  • Joanne Robertson
    For me personally, each book that BA Paris brings out is better than her previous one! And I’ve loved all of them. Her twisty plots are full of untrustworthy characters and plots that weave themselves together until they are so tightly knotted, you don’t know who is telling the truth or where the storyline is heading. I can always rely on this author to have a few shocks hidden up her sleeve to shake me out of my complacency when I think I kn...

    “I knew she would never have wandered off, not at night, not when it was pitch-black because, as I said, she hated the dark.”Finn doesn’t know what happened to Layla, his girlfriend, that fateful night during their vacation to France. But he knows more than he told the police. Layla disappeared without a trace and Finn narrowly avoided being charged with foul play.Twelve years later, Finn has done his best to move on – finding new love wi...

    Actual Rating: 4.5 Stars (Rounded on Goodreads)Finn and Layla were on their way home from a holiday getaway when he stops at a rest area. When he returns from the restroom, Layla is nowhere to be found. Finn rushes to the nearest service station and phones for the police, who search for Layla with no luck. She has just disappeared. No one knows if she was murdered, if she left of her own accord... she's just gone .Twelve years later, Finn is ...
  • Joyce (Button-Eyed Reader)
    This was my first B.A Paris novel, and really had no expectations. So my opinion is unbiased. There were a few moments towards the end, I felt were a bit cheesy. But the overall storytelling and experience was a good one.To view my full review, you can visit:

    Thank you to NetGalley and B.A. Paris for providing me this copy in exchange for my review.Had to let this one fully digest before I could write my review. 12-years ago Layla disappeared from a rest stop as Finn and Layla were coming back from a trip to Megeve, France. As the years have passed there has never been a clue as to how Layla went missing. Fast forward to the present, Finn is now engaged to Ellen, Layla's sister and little Russian doll...
