NICUnurse’s Review of Come to Me by JH Croix
Come to Me by J. H. Croix is the third book in this author’s Dare With Me series set in a small Alaska town. I read book two and had some issues with it, so I was a little reluctant to give this one a shot. Most of the issues I had with Evers & Afters were not present in this story. There weren’t as many extraneous characters to confuse me, and when there were, the author did a better job of incorporating some backstory without making it an information dump. And while there was some back and forth between the characters as to whether they wanted to be in a relationship, it didn’t feel like the endless loop the main characters from the previous book were in. It was more of a two step forward, one step back progression, which I feel is pretty realistic, even for fiction. If a book doesn’t have the characters at least moving forward slowly, it feels monotonous to me. Where I felt a bit let down by Evers & Afters, I felt pretty happy, uplifted, and redeemed with Come to Me. It’s definitely more of a standalone book, in my opinion, so if reading all of the books in a series in order isn’t your thing, this book would be the better one to read if you don’t want to start with book one.
