  1. EDITED TO SAY THE FOLLOWING THIS IS NOT A CHEATING BOOK I couldn t wait for an author to tackle a married couple and how to keep their marriage alive, strong, and safe from insecurities Well Ms Pastore tackled it with Return to Us If you had the privilege to have read Bound to Me, Healed by You or even the Unscripted Series, you have already met Matthew and Tinley If you didn t read the books I just mentioned, that s okay too, because this is a standalone.The Prologue sets the tone of Return to [...]


  2. Every now and then, you come across a book that just resonates with you so deeply that you just can t escape the story It consumes you because you relate to the tale so easily, and can even imagine yourself being in that very scenario That is how I felt after completing Return To Us It s rare to find a romance novel centered on a married couple, and this story was so gut wrenchingly beautiful The message is simple, but so very complex at the same time.I was hooked on Tinsely and Matt s story fro [...]


  3. Return to UsBy Christy Pastore5 Bullseye StarsChristy Pastore can write an awesome Hollywood story The characters are real, the story is believable, you turn the page one after another sucked into the world they live in just like it s happening in real time This is the 3rd book in this series All can be read as standalones Yet as we all know the stories work so much better if read as a series In Return to Us, we get Matthew and Tinley s story Matthew the actor and Tinley the childhood actor who [...]


  4. Return to Us by Christy Pastore Return to Us was a breath of fresh air Rarely do I see stories of married couples facing real problems and fighting tooth and nail to save their marriage Matthew and Tinley were broken Was it salvageable or had the damage been done I love how Return to Us spanned the entirety of Mattley s relationship From the first pull towards each other to the very end, this style of writing had me vested I was wrapped up in their romance and eager to see what would happen to t [...]


  5. It can t be easy being married to Hollywood s most sought after man, but Tinley was determined to make it work The question is, is Matthew Barber willing to make it work Matthew and Tinley s story started out quite unexpected, and I mean that in a good way We get to see them in their most troublesome moments very early on and what lead to that through out the book.I loved the way Christy took us on a journey so we could understand their love and their hardship Marriage in general is a lot of wor [...]


  6. I love a good movie star romance and I was intrigued that this one was actually about a couple that was already married trying to save their relationship As my first book by Christy Pastore, I was super excited to read it Tinley and Matthew meet and are instantly enad with one another Tinley can t believe she s with the man of her dreams and Matthew can t stop thinking about Tinley With both of their schedules, though, it s hard to start a serious relationship But they get married and really thi [...]


  7. ARC Provided by the Author Tinley and Matthew are married at the start of the book and, as the blurb tells you, this is a marriage that is struggling, that is having issues with where they are and where they go from here Tinley grew up in the public eye and has withdrawn from it Matthew is Hollywood s current it man So, they meet when they are pursuing different things in their lives, and this is a tension at the beginning, and throughout the marriageing what they each want with the pressures of [...]

  9. I absolutely loved this story from the start to the very end I planned to read just a few pages of this story before I went to bed and before I know it was the early hours of the morning and I read the whole story The author did a wonderful job with expressing the trials and joys of being in a relationship and the hardships that this particular couple experience throughout the story.Tinley was a strong female character that I really connected with because of the way the author wrote her characte [...]


  10. 4.5 starsIf you ve read even one of my reviews, chances are you know I cry I have tears and they are not afraid to show up Return to Us will bring them welling in your eyes, tracking down your cheeks, and considering a second round Whether I m sensitive or not, that prologue had me on edge The edge of nausea and heartache I can t explain other than to say 4 questions and 6 words had me wanting to vomit, hug Tinley, and rage all at the same time Did I mention this is my first Christy Pastore book [...]

  12. I had the privilege to read the three stand alone books in this series back to back to back Each book got better than the last I think Christy saved the best book couple for the finale Matthew and Tinley Their story is beautifully heartbreaking The format of how their story is laid out was woven seamlessly between their past and present The emotions are high in this one At around 83% I was in a public place reading and I had to try very hard to not bawl my eyes out The love these two have for on [...]


  13. this book touched me so deep I had to take the night and just let it all soak into my thoughts I woke up this morning still on a book high as I call it, I read this book in a few hours I couldn t put it down, it consumed me from the first page all the way to the last I could close my eyes and be in the same room as Matt and Tinley I could and still can feel all the raw emotions they each had being in a relationship going on 18 yrs, I know the ups and downs, I also know what it is like to want so [...]


  14. Absolutely loved this one Return to Us is an emotional story that takes you on a journey of real life struggles I loved that the main characters are married and the author gives us a look into the challenges So many times the happily ever after ends at the married stage, but in life, growing and learning from a relationship, is constant You get that in this novel A romance that will tug at your heartstrings, show how a blossomed relationship can hit a ditch, and the commitment to choose the pers [...]


  15. This is my stand out favourite of the three books and not just because I loved Tinley and Matthew so much but i just felt connected to the emotions in this one the most.I don t often read about a married couple so I was looking forward to this one The prologue gutted me, I was so ready to chuck rocks at Matthew because I d formed an opinion about him and not a good one I m glad I stuck with it because I got was an honest look at two people who love each other but have along the way lost each oth [...]


  16. I enjoyed Matt and Tinley s story Even thought they are famous and in the limelight everyday , they still have everday ups and downs like everyone else I couldn t imagine being in there shoes having to watch everything you say and do Both Matt and Tinley were drifting apart, and had to look back and make them see that they weren t meant to be and to fall back in love with one another I really like that Matt and Tinley were a married couple in the book and that the author chose to write a story a [...]

Return to Us is MORE than your normal Hollywood Elite story Yes, you get the stardom, the tabloid rumors, the flashy cars and multiple houses, but this one IT S ABOUT MARRIAGE SURVIVAL WORK Return to Us is heart wrenching and gripping story of a married couple, trying to make it work The spotlight there only enemy Fighting to stay strong for one another while creating a communication barrier that neither knew existed It s rare that you find a book that makes you think about your own life, but Ch [...]


  18. Reviewed by Deborah from Alpha Book Club When you come out of the darkness into the light still holding hands.I have always wondered how Matthew and Tinley got together because we saw them make an appearance in the first 2 books Matthew and Tinley both live in the Hollywood limelight but have never met one another until Tinley interrupts his date He wants her right from the start and they are both intensely attracted to each other from that day forward The first part of the book details how thei [...]


  19. Return to Us by Christy Pastore is really an emotional story that will take the reader on one heck of a rollercoaster of journey emotionally, showing the struggles that go on in a marriage and the fight to make things work It is a story told with such realism that I felt like I was right there the entire time I truly felt so connected to the characters in this story and was so involved that I didn t want the story to end for that is how great this ride was There were challenges and fights and he [...]

  23. I love Christy s way of pulling us into this world Its like getting a true sneak peek into the life of our favorite celebrities She manages to capture all the feels of what it is like to be a power couple, the worlds eyes watching and speculating on what they think is going on, yet not actually knowing anything.Matthew and Tinley are a real life married couple trying to juggle their careers and fame and still maintain a loving relationship All of their trials and heartache are kept hidden well f [...]

  25. There is something so real about this book And the irony of the realness is that they re all Hollywood actors This book socked me right in the feels I m not an overly emotional person but I felt connected to these characters in ways I can t describe I LOVE that they re older meaning upper 20 s, lower 30 s It just gives their story that much validity Tilnley is my favorite person ever As I read I was on this wild ride of emotions and life lessons with her She s quite likable in most every aspect [...]

  27. This book was an amazing ending to an amazing series Perfect as a read alone though, this book still will make total sense if you read them out of order Mattley Matt Tinley were one of my favorite couples in the harbour series, they both have spit fire personalities Tinley has had a very stressful childhood that holds her stuck in her future But she still has such an amazing personality and light inside her Matt has a southern drawl, and is a hunk of man meat that is just too adorable not to lov [...]
