When Lauren Monroe first laid eyes on Michael Delaney back in high school, she had every reason to stay away from him; within minutes of their first encounter, his volatile actions confirmed his notorious reputation. But Lauren saw something in him that caused her to question his bad-boy persona, and against her better judgment, she took a chance. She had no way of knowing that the unlikely friendship they formed would become so important to her.
Or that it would end so painfully.
Eight years later, when Lauren begins her new job at Learn and Grow Day Care, Michael is the last person she expects to see. Refusing to revisit the hurt and confusion of their past, Lauren vows to keep her distance from him. But staying away from Michael proves to be more difficult than she thought, despite her lingering grief and her instincts for self-preservation.
As Lauren and Michael recall the friendship that changed them forever and the events that tore them apart, will they finally be able to heal? Or will the ghosts of Michael’s past prove to be too much to overcome?

I liked the first cover quite a lot actually. Since the story was quite dark at times, that yellow sunshiny cover gave me hope that it'll have beautiful, bright and sweet moments as well. It sure didn't disappoint. This cover is more intimate and Michael is pretty much exactly like I envisioned him. Also, the neutral coloring is right up my alley and I'm really glad this is the new cover for this gorgeous book that touched me deeply.

I really like it. I'm happy that they kept the font treatment the same. I think the other one covered the darkness and hope better, but this one is super cute as well. Thanks for sharing!ReplyDelete
Yeah! I thought exactly the same when I took a look at the font. It's beautiful and I would have been a bit disappointed if it were different than the original. Yep, it's pretty cute, isn't it;)Delete
Love this cover! I'm excited to read Back to You!ReplyDelete
I'm soooo looking forward to your thoughts:)Delete
Looking at this cover I certainly wouldn't expect a dark read - this says cute, flirty contemporary romance to me, but I do like it:) I would just be a touch surprised when I read the book and got a more emotionally intense read! The book itself sounds awesome, your review yesterday pretty much sold me on it Siiri:)ReplyDelete
Theheee!! It wasn't that dark in particular, just had very hard emotional topics in it and heartbreak was definitely one of the key words in this novel;) I cannot wait to see what you think of it! Even if you end up hating it, which I doubt, I think your thoughts will be a joy to read as always:)Delete
