Review - Rewind to You By Laura Johnston

Expected Publication: September 15th 2014

One last summer before college on beautiful Tybee Island is supposed to help Sienna forget. But how can she? This is where her family spent every summer before everything changed, before the world as she knew it was ripped away. 

But the past isn’t easily left behind. Especially when Sienna keeps having episodes that take her back to the night she wants to forget. Even when she meets the mysterious Austin Dobbs, the guy with the intense blue eyes, athlete’s body, and weakness for pralines who scooped her out of trouble when she blacked out on River Street. 

When she’s with Austin, Sienna feels a whole new world opening up to her. Austin has secrets, and she has history. But caught between the past and the future, Sienna can still choose what happens now…

Rewind to You is an exciting new young adult contemporary romance dealing with loss and new love. With some fantastic characters and a story-line that leaves you swooning, Rewind to you keeps the audience turning the pages until the very end.

Sienna is a fragile character, she is dealing with the loss of her father and the guilt she feels about the accident. She is stuck in a relationship where the feelings just aren't there anymore and is trying to keep her family from falling apart when at the same time she is falling apart herself. 

Enter Austin Dobbs, he saves her in more ways than one. Austin is a sweet genuine character who I instantly loved. He has problems of his own but he is positive and trying to make something of his life. I love the relationship they share, the realism of their feelings and how it grows into something so meaningful.

I enjoyed the journey Sienna and Austin share together, it has its up and downs and is realistic. I did find myself at times shouting at Sienna to see what a great thing she had in front of her and that is what should happen in a good story! I want to feel what the characters are feeling and with Rewind to You I could do just that.

Rewind to You is excellently written, fills you with emotion and leaves you craving more. A clean romance that is sweet and romantic and fulfills the summer romance! I am looking forward to seeing what Laura Johnston has to share with us all next!
