The sequel to Lead Me Not, this dangerously sexy second installment in the Twisted Love series continues Aubrey and Maxx’s love story, from New York Times bestselling author A. Meredith Walters—who “writes the most beautifully flawed characters that still have you swooning” (Sawyer Bennett, USA Today bestselling author of the Off series).
Aubrey Duncan has loved…and lost. Should she follow a heart that’s betrayed her or a head that tells her to let go?
Maxx Demelo’s addiction almost destroyed him. It ruined his life and, most importantly, his relationship with the only girl he ever loved.
He has vowed to become the man Aubrey Duncan deserves. Even if he has to tear himself apart to do it. So he enters rehab, trying to fix the parts of him that are shattered as he longs to be healthy and whole.
Aubrey lost everything because she chose to listen to her heart. Now she has sworn to put herself first, to heal in the only way that she can…far away from Maxx and his demons.
But just as Aubrey is starting over, Maxx is released from rehab and thrust back into her world, determined to prove how much they still need each other. And the chaos that had defined them threatens to unleash once again…
But a heart, no matter how broken, is impossible to ignore.
Lead Me Not (Book 1)
A. Meredith Walters
A. Meredith spent ten years as a counselor for at risk teens and children. First working at a Domestic Violence/Sexual Assault program and then later a program for children with severe emotional and mental health issues. Her former clients and their stories continue to influence every aspect of her writing.
When not writing (or being tortured with all manner of beauty products at the hand of her very imaginative and extremely girly daughter), she is eating chocolate, watching reality television that could rot your brain and reading a smutty novel or two.
A. Meredith is represented by Michelle Johnson with the Inklings Literary Agency.
Do you ever begin the second book in a series filled so much hope for its characters that you’re scared to start reading it? The angst and drama – heartache, that I have already experienced with this imaginary couple, left me highly anticipating reading Follow Me Back. I was nervous as to what would come of Maxx and Aubrey’s future together.
The story picks up right where Lead Me Not concluded. Maxx and Aubrey’s worlds are in disarray. They are heartbroken and you believe that they have reached their own personal rock bottoms. You can feel their desperation and their craving for normalcy, love and attention. Maxx and Aubrey’s journey toward solace is one you will not forget.
A. Meredith Walters writing swipes aside all the BS and digs down into the harsh reality of loving someone with an addiction. It’s a powerful and emotional. You experience it all. You are cringing and fearful of the pitfalls in recovery – you’re on the edge of your seat reading this book. It’s freaking intense.
But at the heart of this book is a love story. A romance so strong that it fights against everything to survive. You’re silently cheering this couple on – you want their happily ever after moment. You want the two to heal and to find trust in each other. I loved every moment.
I cannot recommend Lead Me Not and Follow Me Back enough. You do not want to miss Maxx and Aubrey’s romance and journey. They are incredible books.
