Maura is a twenty three year old who is still coping with her parents' sudden death two years ago. She recently graduated from college and now has her own catering business. A best friend-roommate who has been there through it all and helps make life manageable.
Until first love Pierson Hammer comes walking back into her life.
Pierson has demons of his own, after serving in the military for five years. Tormented from his past and present. he comes home hoping to make amends with Maura.
Can Maura forgive Pierson for leaving her all those years ago? Can she trust him with her future? Will she open herself up completely?

I have received this book as part of a blog tour in exchange of an honest review.
Pierson left his home town and Maura when he decided to join the army. Maura moved on with her life but, years later, Pierson is back and not exactly the same.
I had some trouble connecting with Maura in the beginning but, as the story developed I began to understand and like her more. She’s smart and has learned to stand up for herself. I didn’t always agree with her decisions and actions but I still liked her.  
I wasn’t so sure about Pierson and his intentions in the beginning but then I began to like him more and more.
Maura and Pierson’s relationship is complicated. There’s a lot going on with them, after all. The double POV helped understand both characters a little bit more.
All in all, Coming Back To You in an interesting book that deals with an important topic. I didn’t always agree with the characters and the things they did but I still enjoyed the book. It’s a good story with good moments.
The author did a good job with the story and if you like New Adult, give this book a try.
ld read this series!
