Back to Me by Lindsay Paige
My rating: 5 of 5 stars
Lindsay Paige’s BACK TO ME is an amazing start to the Carolina Rebels Series. Tennis star Meredith Quick suffers a potential career-ending injury. After reflecting on her situation, she realizes she made a mistake when she broke up with her ex-boyfriend, hockey player Noah Ramsey. She heads to Raleigh, North Carolina in hopes of rekindling their relationship. This contemporary sports romance is suitable for new adult and adult audiences.
Lindsay Paige does a great job with her character development. My heart went out to Meredith. She had some difficult experiences. Everything seemed to be going wrong, and she had no direction. I admire her for going after the one person in her life she loved but gave up, Noah. It took a lot of guts to get on that plane. I could understand why she originally gave him up. They were young at the time they started dating. They had their entire lives ahead of them. Both of them had promising athletic careers; her in tennis and him in hockey. Sometimes it takes a tragedy in life for a person to reprioritize what is really important to them.
I really like Noah. He has always loved Meredith. Enough to have her name tattooed above his heart. I love that he never had it removed or tattooed over. I also appreciated that everyone knows about the tattoo and what their reaction is when they meet Meredith. I think it is great that he kept in touch with Meredith’s family. Noah has wonderful teammates who are like a family. I especially like Marc.
I really enjoy Lindsay Paige’s writing style. She does a great job of making you understand the characters. The plot is credible and heartfelt. I like how faith intervenes in the story. Erica and Vance both cause some interesting conflicts. There are a number of compelling things that happen in the story that kept it exciting. Lindsay Paige does a fabulous job with all her descriptions. She makes it easy to visualize everything that is happening, especially the sports. I really like Meredith and Noah together. I like how the story is resolved. BACK TO ME is an excellent foundation for the Carolina Rebels Series. I am looking forward to Elizabeth and Marc’s story in book two, BECAUSE IT’S YOU, and enjoyed the preview at the end of BACK TO ME.
