    • 4 StarsBack To Us is a story about two broken characters who started as strangers and who eventually became friends until they realized that they fell in love with each other. Things were not that easy for Justin and Jessica though, because these characters have inner battles they're fighting and their issues were the main reason why getting into a relationship was difficult. Jessica's parents abandoned her and her brother when she was 14 and since then, she has been living independently. Justin [...]

College student Jessica is focused and determined to lead a better life than the abusive childhood that left her abandoned and living in a group home.

    • Review originally posted on my blog I Heart Fictional PeopleINITIAL THOUGHTSThe title and the cover intrigued me from the start. And after I read the synopsis, I knew I had to read it. I’m a sucker for two damaged people with their own haunted pasts who come together, fall in love, and make each other’s lives better.WHAT I LIKEDOh where do I start? I loved everything about this book. It was one of those feel-good books that you just can’t put down because you just HAVE to know what happens [...]


    • 2.5/3 StarsMy opinion and may have a few spoilers.Here is what I liked:The characters and the story. I loved that this story was not insta-love. Great premise.This is what I did not like:There was TOO much detail. It took me awhile to get into the story. I almost DNFed the story because there was no point to some of the extensive detail. Not sure if an editor points that out to an author. For example: - The heroine had to describe in great detail about the Chinese takeout her brother got. (loc 4 [...]


    • My heartstrings have officially been pulled! Honestly, it took me a while to get into this book. This was likely because I've been overly distracted and shouldn't be taken as a poor reflection of the author or this work. I kept reading and before I knew it, I was looking forward to sneaking in an extra chapter on my lunch break to see what happened with these two damaged, but likable characters. Both of them have troubled backgrounds, and the demons of their pasts cast a dark shadow over their c [...]


    • Pulls on the heartstringsCan two young people aged beyond their tender years overcome their early adversities and risk it all for love? That’s the story question Kindle Scout winning author Teresa Roman poses in her new book.Jessica and her brother were abandoned by their parents in the US. Their parents literally left them here and went back to Croatia. Jessie went through the “system” and managed to reconnect with her older brother after high school. On top of her abandonment, she endure [...]


    • full review!princessicaofbooks.wordpressI received a copy for review from the author. This in no way has affected my review. Two things-- I don't usually read eBooks or novellas so I was kind of out of my comfort zone on this one. However, I tried not to let that effect my review. I actually quite enjoyed Back to Us. At first, I thought it was kind of mediocre, probably a solid three. There is some insta- love but not much. I finally got into it about 50 or so pages in. I found the second half [...]


    • I was given a free copy of this book as part of the Kindle Scout program. I was torn between 3 and 4 stars. This was a sweet easy read love story. Justin is a damaged Navy vet, Jessica was abused as a child and left by her parents. They connect because of their broken parts. I was leaning with 3 starts because it really was just a quick easy read. Not a whole lot of depth to it. No big surprises. I decided on 4 stars because once I started reading it I couldn't put it down. I enjoyed Justin and [...]



    • Originally posted on Daydreaming Books.**I received a digital copy of this book from Xpresso Book Tours in exchange for an honest review.**Back To Us was a light read, it had a lot of potential but it felt flat for me. It had a promising start but somewhere towards the middle the rhythm got lost. Nonetheless I did enjoy this book, I just didn't fall in love with it.The story is about Jessica and Justin. Jessica's financial condition is not so good. She had a pretty rough childhood and now she li [...]


    • I liked the story of the 2 main characters struggling to overcome the hardships imposed on them by life. I liked their romance, and the honest and honorable nature of their affection for each other. But I have to admit that the aspect I liked the most was the setting. I lived in NYC for many years as a teenager, and the description, the setting, the actions of the characters through the city, it all felt so real. I can imagine that the author really lived there. I also think that in this day and [...]


    • Thanks to Xpresso Book Tours for the review copy!For some reason it is difficult to write long reviews when I really liked a book, because there is nothing wrong in it to point out, you know? And this is the case, I absolutely adored this book, it is about trust and learn to love your other half not matter what. Justin and Jessica were made for each other.Mike, Jessica's brother, was a great character,it surprised me how wise and mature he turned out to be. He and Mel were great together.Justin' [...]


    • Back To Us is an emotional romance that I highly recommend. It’s told in the first person POV; Jessica has had a hard life but she describes her struggles in a strong, warm voice. I understand that this is Roman’s first novel but reading it, I never would have thought so. She uses specifics and vivid details to draw us into the romance between Justin and Jessica, and the character development was great. I particularly liked Jessica’s relationship with her brother, Mike, and the contrast of [...]


    • BACK TO US is what I'd call a "real" romance with great, realistic character layering. Jessica and Justin are pretty much perfect for each other, but they are far from perfect individually. They each have intense pasts to deal with, and they have to learn, together, how to let each other help. Author Teresa Roman did a great job of developing Jessica and Justin's characters as they learn to focus on the core of what drew them together in the first place.


    • I couldn't get enough of this book. I really loved it. In fact I didn't get anything done today because I was reading it. The reveal was so well done. I loved both Justin and Jess. And the brothers - all of them!I also loved the timeline this book took. It wasn't a whirlwind 2 weeks and we are in love thing. Believable relationships take time. I'm glad this one took the time and showed more complex issues with parents. It made it very real and enjoyable. I hope this author writes more!


    • Heartfelt story. Two broken individuals who meet, become friends and fall in love despite all of their family drama, past and issues. You have Jess, who's parents abuse and abandon her and her brother and just break down the two siblings who have self-worth issues. You have Justin young war hero, injured, PTSD and other problems. They end up together, break-up and together again, but what a journey along the way. I really enjoyed the story.


    • Teresa Roman gives us the beautiful and satisfying love story of Jessica and Justin, two young people from very different boroughs of New York City, who meet one summer when they’re working at a community center. They’re instantly attracted to each other, but because of incidents in their pasts, they each struggle to believe they’re worthy to be loved. This is the ongoing conflict in Back to Us. But the universal need to love and be loved is what keeps them fighting for their dreams.


    • This is a great detailed love story between two people who you will connect with and feel for. One is an adult abuse survivor and the other a war vet with all their internal conflicts can they find and keep their love? Beautiful and easy read ! * I received this book for free from First Reads program. However this in no way reflects on my review.


    • This type of books makes you believe in True Love and how if your love is true you don't mind your partner's weakness. You Love them with your whole heart. Teresa Roman stole my Heart with her Beautiful Writing and Development of great characters. I Loved Jessica and Justin's Sweet Love Story. I Would Definitely Recommend all the readers to read the Book.


    • Justin is bae, Jessica is brilliant. NA content, so if you are not comfortable with it, do not pick it up unless you are ready for it.full review - haddieshaven/2015


    • 3.5 **review contains spoilers**I did like this book, but I had some issues especially with the ending. The ending, for one thing, felt incredibly rushed. One minute Justin's mom hates Jess, and then all of a sudden there's this big turnaround and she's confessing that Jess is like the "daughter she never had". Umm, what?? I wish there would have been some sort of transition, like maybe a chapter or two should have been set aside to develop their relationship. I also would have liked to know mor [...]


    • A sweet romance with mild sexual activity. It shows how people can let others mold us to be who we are. Jess and Justin both let other people's comments and action keep them from being who they really were. The characters at times felt a bit juvenile, considering Jess was supposed to be "mature." Nonetheless, if you love romance stories, you'll enjoy this one.


    • Great story about two people trying to come to grips with the life they have been dealt and learning to trust one another in the process as their love for one another grows. Loved reading about the ups and downs and how they deal with it. Looking forward to reading the next book that is about some of the characters from this book. Hope to hear more about Jessica and Justin in it too.


    • I loved this bookI just felt like I could relate to the main characters in this book. I’m a corpsman vet myself but I understand where Jess is coming from. It really hit me on a personal level. Well done.


    • Very beautiful, romance history I like this book. Is a romantic history between a poor woman and a rich man. But is not the usually love history. Is really beautiful!


    • Real life story!!!!Well written and interesting with Justin and Jessica each having there own secrets and problems they need to over come!



    • FIGHTING FOR WANT YOU WANT DESPITE THE HARDSHIPS YOU HAVE FACED IS DEFINITELY THE OVER-ARCHING THEME IN THIS NOVEL. BOTH JESS AND JUSTIN HAVE BEEN HIT HARD BY WHAT LIFE HAS DECIDED TO THROW AT THEM AND YET THEY KEEP ON GOING AFTER WHAT THEY WANT OR DOING WHAT THEY ARE PASSIONATE ABOUT. YOU LEARN VERY EARLY ON JUST HOW STRONG AND DETERMINED JESS HAD TO BE ONCE HER PARENTS ABANDONED HER AND SHE WAS PUT IN THE SYSTEM.
