My Review: This was my first time reading Anne Mercier and I look forward to more because The Way Back to Me was pretty darn good. I picked this up on recommendation so I was going in blind. The blurb was mildly interesting.I just took this blogger at their word and I am glad I did.
So Olivia is our heroine and she has gone through something so tragic that I can’t even begin to comprehend her pain. And obviously she can’t either as we open the story with her trying to drink her pain away…then a mysterious strangers helps her home. We get a glossed over version of what happened early on as Olivia grieves but NOTHING prepared me for the retelling of the events that actually happened. I teared up and had to put the book down for several minutes. However, the book isn’t all sad. There are actually very wonderful and light moments as Cam does everything he can to help Olivia open up.
As a hero Cam was pretty cool. About as cool as a college sophomore could be…a star wide-recieving, frat boy, college sophomore. Rrriiiggghhhttt. Needless to say sometimes he confused me in the “I like you so I’m gonna pull your ponytail”, kinda way..but he got it together and overall made a great addition to this story. I enjoyed the supporting cast as well and would love to read more if this author decides to write Sebastian’s story (hint hint). However, this book ends in a cliffhanger so we can expect more from Olivia and Cam. So 4 stars for college love story!

Blurb: She was perky, fun, and full of life—everything I hated about girls and their bullshit exterior. People called her bubbly; I called her “fake-as-hell.”
The edgy, dark, lonely girl in front of me was not the Olivia Brennan I knew from high school—far from it, actually. I knew the story—the whole town knew the story, we witnessed it all. It happened in the blink of an eye and the girl we knew was gone.
But I refuse to watch it anymore—I can’t stand it. I’m going to fix it—fix her. It’s time I showed Olivia Brennan her way back…
Back to the girl she used to be.
