Coming Back To You by Lily Hayden

Coming Back To You Banner


Some loves last for just a short time, but ours lasted a lifetime.

From the moment that Emma met Ryan, she knew he was the one for her, but he leaves her heartbroken when he betrays her and disappears from her life, only to return and shatter her heart for a second time.

We were never meant to be, we just happened against the odds.

It feels like fate when life throws them back together as adults, but Emma has moved on now and she can’t throw everything away for the man who left her heartbroken twice.

Emma is living a charmed life with a beautiful family and her art career beginning to take off, but she can’t help feeling like her heart is pulling her back to her first love.

I keep on coming back to you.

One chance encounter with Ryan, so unexpected that it feels like it was written in the stars, throws them back together and she can’t deny the connection between them is stronger than ever. Emma learns that Ryan has been keeping a secret from her, and she has to decide whether to turn away from him forever or keep fighting for their love against all odds.


I’m utterly wrung out from this one. A tale of missed opportunities, bad timing, and what-ifs, Coming Back To You is a heart-wrenching testament to an undying love through better or worse.

If you have ever found that one true love of your life where you know you were meant to be together, you are extremely blessed. Emma and Ryan are that couple, but life gets in the way.

We follow the two tragic lovers for 20+ years beginning in high school. Emma lives in a strict household with a controlling father and obedient mother. From the beginning, her parents are opposed to Emma having a boyfriend and Ryan’s circumstances are not conducive to their plans for her and so the chain begins. From there, other unexpected things happen over the years to hinder their reunion until a bittersweet ending.

Overall, this is a beautifully tragic love story of soulmates destined to have stolen moments throughout their lives until fate steps in.  Please also see my review of New Rules by Ms. Hayden.

Thank you to Ms. Hayden for giving me the opportunity to read this book with no expectation of a positive review.
