Back to Reality by Danielle Allen was just released this week- December 2013. I received a copy of this book from the author in exchange for an honest review.

Back to Reality is the follow up novel to Back to Life. This book picks up right where the first one left off.
It seems that Sahara can't catch a break. She was finally seeing light at the end of the tunnel when BAM! she gets blindsided. So, now Sahara is right back in the same hole she was before. Emmanuelle or Tyree?
After Sahara reacts to tragedy and pressure the same way she always has, both men are at their wits end with her. Thankfully, Sahara seeks counseling. She meets another young man at the hospital and for the first time, Sahara feels capable of having a friend. But, even here things are not all they appear to be.

Meanwhile, Sahara's best friend and Manny's sister, Emily, is getting married!
While this is exciting and Emily is getting to live her dream out, Sahara is once more on the verge of finding peace, until ..... you guessed it- another bombshell.
So, once again Sahara finds herself in limbo. She still can't think things out or find that elusive peace she so longs for until she has the forgiveness she needs from the men in her life.
Thankfully, she makes progress through her therapy in dealing with the past and is able to begin to find closure in those areas of her life. If only her love life would work itself out!!

As with any love triangle, people reading the book will naturally chose a side. It's pretty much unavoidable. I also chose sides, but not until I got about half way through this book. While some may judge Sahara for being indecisive, I understood her completely. She did actually love both men. She also felt things so deeply and had internalized things for so long, she didn't know any other way to cope. But, of course she will really pick one of these guys and for me, although I had the inevitable mixed feelings, I was super happy with the ending.
I strongly recommend that you read the first book so you really understand the characters and why they do the things they do.

Danielle did a great job bringing deeply wounded and flawed characters to a place of hope and healing , back to life and to reality. A really uplifting ending no matter whose team you were cheering for.
Overall this one is an A.
