Bring Me Back Reviews
4 entertaining stars to Bring Me Back! ⭐ ⭐ ⭐ ⭐
I’m beginning to look forward to B.A. Paris’ new release each summer! Her debut, Behind Close Doors, remains my favorite, but Bring Me Back is an entertaining thrill ride!
First of all, Paris knows how to hook me early on. Finn and Layla are on vacation, and while they are driving along a deserted highway, Finn stops to use the restroom at a gas station. When he returns to his car, Layla has disappeared. Or, so Finn tells the police...

Russia, Russia, Russian Dolls….
It seemed like an invasion of the Russian dolls! I may need my own set now as the characters really seemed to enjoy them (really??!!)
This one starts off with a bang! I was totally creeped out by the truck rest stop (I’ve always found them creepy, especially at night). And when Finn finds his girlfriend Layla has vanished from their car, I was on the edge of my seat. Ooh…..surrounded by spooky woods too!
As the plot thickens, I was intrigued to find out how things ...more
Definitely suspenseful, quickly paced, and I did appreciate the format. Alternating viewpoints worked very well for this story. Had no clue exactly what was going on most of the time, totally fooled. Didn't like any of these characters, suspected Finn of many things, Ellen seemed the most normal, well adjusted. Unreliable narrators was my thinking. The Russian doll gimmick I thought corny.
This was a sisters read where most liked this much more than I. Turned out to be a mixed read for me, and i ...more
Fun to read, but too implausible for me. I didn't understand the relationships between the characters, so it was hard to wrap my head around everything. If you can suspend your disbelief enough, it's a wild ride that is easy to devour quickly. I particularly enjoyed the short, punchy chapters. I read this one in a group, and we were pretty divided over this one. Some loved it, some weren't as impressed. I could have done with a little more realism and a few less dolls, but those aspects worked w ...more
I don’t mind suspending belief (it’s commercial fiction after all) but when I enter the realm of the ludicrous count me out.
.... mediocre middle....
Psychological thriller with Russian Dolls? A little goofy....but I was a willing reader.
While there was suspense...there was also something silly too. Silly sentences sneak into the dialogue..., but I was still a willing reader. The addictive quality was there too.
Finn is the guy entangled between Ellen and Layla.
It wasn’t lip-smacking great...nor nail-biting haunting...but the twist at the end was carefully constructed and pretty good!
I trusted non ...more
Bring Me Back is the third book written by B.A. Paris and having loved the first two imagine my excitement when I saw that this one would be coming soon. Immediately my little fingers pound down on that request button to obtain a review copy then I had to sit back and wait….. *fingers crossed* When my approval came in for Bring Me Back it was more of a…… *happy dance*
But then the excitement level was tested as I waited until closer to publication to read this one. I kept seeing review after revi ...more

Twelve years ago Finn’s girlfriend, Layla disappeared from a rest stop on their way home from vacation. In his statement to police, he said that Layla was in the car when he stopped to use the restroom. When he got back she was nowhere to be found. His phone wasn't getting a signal so he drove to the nearest gas station to ask for help.
“It was the truth. But not quite the whole truth”
Finn was arrested on suspicio ...more
