R E V I E W ➠ Lead Me Back by CD Reiss




A twist of fate proves wildly explosive in New York Times bestselling author CD Reiss’s smart and sexy Hollywood romance about the cost of running from your past to get to your dreams.
Cutting all ties, Kayla Montgomery drives cross-country to Los Angeles. New start. New life. And an unexpected new job: assistant to Justin Beckett.
The Justin Beckett.
The boy band rebel with the cocky attitude and dreamy bed head who casts a spell over his fans and tests the patience of his handlers.
Now at the peak of Mount Adulthood, he has to build a clean-cut, movie star image. It’s in his contract. No partying. No attitude. No groupies.
To tie it together, he needs a normal girl.
Suddenly, Kayla’s swept up in Justin’s glamorous world, and his arms. But the most dizzying thing is Justin himself. Sweet, generous, reliable, and as eager to shed his past as Kayla is hers.
About that…
Those ties she thought she’d cut? They’ve followed her across the country with her secrets in tow, and they’re about to test Kayla’s courage, Justin’s loyalty, and a love that wasn’t part of the deal.

“I need to live the one life I have.” Pushing against my hands, I stood up. “I can’t let you take over. I won’t.”

Not my first read by the author but new enough where I have only read one other book by her. What caught me was the blurb and cover, glad I gave this a chance. Celebrity romance isn’t usually my go to, just something about it is too clique for me, this was a 50/50 for me, I had a little bit of a harder time connecting to it all.

What really did work for me was that I was captive to the story, I could feel it and relate to some too but again mostly it has to do because I don’t tend to read the trope and it’s over-read for me. Justin was NOT my favorite the entire book, to me he was too immature and yes he is young but it went over the line for me. I was able to predict the story line a little but again really want to express that the author’s words kept me captive.
