She has to go. What else would she do? Follow me and my band from one cheap bar to another, get hit on by sleazy promoters? Because Jillian would definitely get hit on. She’s the most gorgeous, talented girl I’ve ever known, and she doesn’t even see it.

This scholarship gives Jillian the chance to study at the best design school in the country. It’s what she’s always wanted. I won’t stand in the way of her dreams, no matter how much it hurts to watch her go. I just wish she wasn’t leaving without knowing the truth . . .


Review:  I had the absolute pleasure of reading and reviewing Across the Distance by Marie Meyer awhile ago and I could not wait for this book to come out.  I love when authors give you the story from more than one point of view.  Don’t get me wrong I LOVED Across the Distance and would not change a thing but being able to now go and read the same book from Griff’s point of view will just let me get that much more from the book.

In Can’t Go Back we follow Griff and Jullian.  This is amazing story about always being there for your friends and giving them that support when they need it.  It also includes a lot of growing up, and proof in this book at least that men are just too stubborn for their own good!

The setting for the book takes place primarily over two locations, Rhode Island where Jullian is going to go to design school and Illinois where Griff goes to school.  Although the story goes back and forth a lot between the two characters and locations I found that nothing was lost in the story.  I was able to follow along without any issues, and the attention to detail that the author gave to the characters and their emotions really helped me to see and feel what they were going through.

I have fallen in love with the writing style of the author and the stories that she has written.  I can’t wait for her next book.

Favorite Quote: “I opened the door and the dog came bounding out.  It caught me off guard, and I threw the door open wider and stepped back.  The second my eyes lifted from the ground, Mom screamed and dropped onto Dad, pulling the covers onto the top of them.”
