After reading “Leaving paradise” I was so disappointed that I didn’t really want to read the sequel.
The first book started so damn good but it was just ok by the middle except some good partsand then it ended in such a hurry – I understand why, but i still don’t like it.
I just couldn’t relate to the story at all I know a lot of people loved it, I just wasn’t one of them. But today I read and finished “Return to paradise” and it was really g Sweet, fun, entertaining.
But today I read and finished “Return to paradise” and it was really good. I can’t think of a single thing I didn’t like about this book. The story is really sweet after all the drama they had in the first volume and as an improvement the characters are stronger, making the sequel better.
I like the new confident Paradie, I like the dialog between Maggie and Caleb, I like the hot-and-cold game they play and there are so leafing funny moments that my face hurts for so much laughing.
I love funny books and I love Lenny and Trish and the teasing between them also between the main characters. The action felt so natural page after page, I just felt I was part of the story, never getting bored, always wanting more. It’s a great book. If you like sweet-funny romances then you will love it too. I know I do: This is my favorite book from Simone E. View all 5 comments.
Dec 08, Lora rated it it was ok Shelves: What to say, what to say. I enjoyed Leaving Paradisebut not as much as I was expecting to.
So, when starting this, my expectations weren’t very high.
Return to Paradise (Leaving Paradise, #2) by Simone Elkeles
And because of that, they were met. I just don’t like the characters or the story, for that matter, nearly as much as I do with Leaivng. Elkeles’ other works her Perfect Chemistry series is awesome!
It’s not that I disliked this, but I won’t be reading it or it’s predecessor ever again. So, I guess take that how you want to. I still love Simone E What to say, what to say. I pqradise love Simone Elkeles’ writing, and I still love her other novels, just not these. And to whoever is interested in these two novels, I urge you to try them for yourself ismone not go by my review.
Because I’m only one opinion. By the way, sorry for the short review, I’m just in a weird mood today. View all 7 dlkeles. Jan 31, Annie Brewer rated it it was amazing Recommends it for: Everyone who has ever wanted to give leeaving in life.
That was the most beautifully poignant book ever!!!! God, I’m such a cry baby!!! It had such a beautiful message and left you feeling so good. I am so happy for Caleb and Maggie!! Leah stepped up her game in this one and really surprised me! I loved everything about this book. I’ve been on such a Contemp kick that these stories move me beyond words. I am crying from hap OMG! I am crying from happiness to such an aweful circumstance but I’m also crying because Maggie and Caleb’s eloeles has come to an end.
They will remain in my heart forever! Caleb has become a top fictional boyfriend! He’s perfect in everyway!!! This isn’t my actual review.

I just can’t stop tearing up. So I shall return with a full review soon! First of all, I love this cover. It really fits this book kinda perfectly. I don’t really like the girl that much but the guy is not too bad as my beloved Caleb.
Like I said, I love the cover. It is really romantic and sets the paradisd for this lovely sequel. One of the biggest elke,es I liked about this book was the plot. The first one was very different from what I’ve read. It was unique and flowed very well. This is one was no different. In fact, it was better than the first to me!
Again, I loved the book in both POV’s. It was, so wonderful and I fell in love even more with them!! We left off from Leaving Paradise where Caleb left Paradise again to go off by himself.
His family never accepted him and he felt they were better off without him screwing everything up. His life fell apart the moment he was arrested for hitting Maggie with his car simonee driving home drunk. It was a really screwed up situation. But he got out of jail and did community service. He paid his dues. Then he and Maggie fell in love. She forgave him for everything, yet he wasn’t convinced he was worthy of her or anyone else.
So he left her and Paradise behind. The beginning of Return to Paradise, he gets in trouble again. He is staying in a drug house because he has nowhere to go and his roommate gets busted for drugs. He didn’t sell or do any but still took the blame, almost ended up in the slammer for the 2nd time in 2 years. Until, Damon ssimone to his pzradise
