Title: Coming Full Circle
Series: Pembrooke Series (Book 2)
Author: Jessica Prince
Genre: Contemporary Romance
If you're a fan of Jessica Prince then you have been waiting for Eliza and Ethan's story, and trust me you won't be disappointed. If you've never read Prince's work, do not fear! Coming Full Circle is a standalone, but I do recommend reading the others before it just to get a grasp on the secondary characters.
Eliza has come along way in six years. She’s graduated high school, college, and extended her mother’s business from a bakery to a café. Eliza is finally happy or at least her version of happy. Until Ethan walks back into her life. Ethan, the apple of her eye, guy of her dreams, her best friend, the guy who has owned her heart for years but only thinks of her as a sister.
Ethan has only had one person he felt like he could truly count on in life, Eliza. But like a lot of love stories, Ethan screws it all up. When he comes to realize that he is unquestionably in love with Eliza he runs. Hes an adult, shes a kid, it could never work out, besides Eliza deserves better than someone like him...or does she?
Coming Full Circle is a complicated romance. You want to keep rooting for Ethan to right his wrongs, not only with Eliza, but their friends and family. I was mad right along with them for Ethan's behavior and how he handled things when he was younger, but I think that made me love him more. Eliza has come a long way from the quiet little girl we met in Sweet Sunshine. She's fiesty, independent, and exactly what Ethan needs. The odds are stacked against them but will everything end up full circle?
I loved Coming Full Circle. I laughed, I cringed, and I fist pumped. I cannot wait so see what happens to Ethan and Eliza in the future. I felt like it took forever for Prince to write this story (which it didn’t I’m just really impatient) and I can honestly say it was worth the wait. Here are a few quotes that I liked from Coming Full Circle;
“It was him I went to when I needed advice, his opinion I held in the highest regard, his shoulder I leaned on whenever I needed someone to share my burdens with.”
“I loved him as a child , and that love eventually turned into the most important friendship I’d ever had. We lost our footing for a few years, but we found our way home, and I was happy to say our relationship had come full circle.”
“I naively believed that if I could just ignore everything I was feeling in regards to him, if I could just wait him out until he eventually left, that I’d be fine, but the longer he persisted the harder it was for me to keep faith that my life would eventually go back to what it had been before he re-entered the picture and disrupted everything.”
Writing style- 4/5
Whether I liked it or not.
