Lexi asks: "Why does it have to come down to choosing just one man, when no one man can give me everything I want?"
Beautiful, sexy and spirited Alexis Avery leaves behind her life in Miami with her husband of seven years, Dr. Brad Avery, to begin a scorching affair with an old high-school flame, Nick Cross, who has become the most famous movie star in the world. Their passion is white hot, and their love is real. But when the ardent love scenes required by Nick's profession begin to wear on Lexi, she takes a break from the relationship and returns to Miami to finalize her divorce from Brad.
Things get complicated for Lexi when tabloid gossip about Nick's affair with his co-star emerges. On top of that, Brad's punitive demands compel Lexi to walk out on divorce negotiations.
Looking to escape the turmoil, Lexi takes refuge in a sexually-sizzling relationship with the first boy she ever loved, Bobby Hardwick. In his arms, she finds healing and rekindled love.
As each man realizes he has a tentative hold on Lexi's love, each one ups the stakes in winning her heart and her exclusive love. Because Lexi loves all three men in different ways, for different reasons, she finds it difficult to choose among them. But then, does she have to choose?
Doubling Back to Love is a sensuous and exotic adventure with Alexis Avery as she leaves one man, returns to another, and doubles back more than once in her quest for the ideal love.

I just finished "Doubling Back to Love" and LOVED it! It's a steamy, fast-moving, hot new novel! A better read, for me, then "Shades of Grey". I would really like to see a sequel to Lexi's romantic interludes, or a movie! This new work by Rebecca Warner is a passionate story questioning our decisions concerning our loves and our commitments to those we love. Once again Rebecca has introduced new options that surprise us and liberate us from static, singular solutions. Read it. You’ll be glad you did!
In Doubling Back to Love, author Rebecca Warner gives us a book that’s easy to get caught up in, full of steamy encounters and a very independent woman. Lexi is a gal we love and hate almost in the same breath. How could she be so lucky? She does seem to have it all – looks, talent and to-die-for men flocking to her with promises of forever. So what is missing in Lexi’s psyche that makes her unable to commit to any one of them for very long? For that answer, you have to read the book and even then you may not reach a conclusion. I’d love to see Ms. Warner bring us the next chapter in Lexi’s story, because when I reached the end, I was left wanting much more. Doubling Back to Love has a captivating story line with well-defined characters. This is a book that I would recommend to anyone looking to relax with a bit of romance, flavored with some steamy sex, and some guys we tend to drool over. This is the perfect book to read, curled up with a glass of wine in front of a roaring fire or on a beach somewhere.
I read this book in one day, I could not put it down. It is like a breath of fresh air in the steamy romance genre. This is a great read, a fun story that is very well written and totally different from anything else I've ever read. It's not all about sex by any means, though the sex scenes are beautifully done and spicy without being over the top. But the sexuality of the character, Lexi, is an important element in her relationships. She is beautiful, sexy, independent, smart, and has a good heart, all which makes her very desirable to three different men. They all want her, and she has to decide which one she wants to be with. Though that sounds improbable, the author gives us every reason to believe it. Lexi is not your typical female character who needs to be saved by the perfect man. In fact, Doubling Back to Love is a very different kind of love story, with a clever and very satisfying twist on your typical 'happily ever after' ending. Highly recommend!
This book was packed with deep emotional scenes, that kept you on the edge of your seat. I love how the author flipped the tables and had a woman be the one that decides to leave her relationship to experiment with other men. Lexi was a highly-sexual being and the perfect personality for this. You would think, a woman that jumps from man to man would be someone that you might not like, but Rebecca Warner wrote with such powerful emotion, you felt for Lexi and routed for her the entire book, wanting her to be with the perfect man. I have to say, the last 2-3 chapters had me turning pages faster than I ever have. When Lexi has to choose one of the men she loved so deeply, I wasnt even sure who she would pick. The case for each man, Brad, Nick and Bobby, was written so perfectly, every time one pleaded for her love, I switched and said "He's the one" until the next time they each expressed their love, and I would switch again. Each romance was perfect and it really was hard to pick which guy was the right one for her. The way the book ended was perfect for Lexi. Exactly how the book should end, and had me smiling from ear to ear. Perfect ending to such an emotional book.
Doubling Back To Love, Rebecca Warner Genre: Romance Review from Jeannie Zelos book reviews I’ve mixed feelings about this novel, its well written, its a fun and sexy read but...Lexi – I found it really hard to like her, though at times I understood what she was doing and why. I like a HEA at the end too, and this is a kind of HFN – possibly, maybe, depending on which way Lexi goes next. More than a romance its a kind of journey of Lexi’s mid life, with her returning to some teen flames and meeting them as adults. Lexi has been brought up by parents that clearly adored and indulged her, and it seems to have made her a little selfish, in that she wants her own happiness, but doesn’t really look at the effect her decisions have on others. When she’s describing how she laughed at the first man who proposed it made me feel she was callous, and yet I felt she didn’t intend to be, it just didn’t occur to her that she had the power to hurt others by her words or actions. She’s just not been brought up to think of how others feel. Then Nick Cross drops back into her life, teen flame and prom date – though that ended badly. She discusses her fantasies with her lovely husband Brad. They’ve been married eight years and adore each other, and still when Nick beckons she comes. Its not spur of the moment either – she’s been thinking of what she’d do and decided if the opportunity arose she’d take it. I find that hard – that she didn't give a thought to Brad, except to think as they’d discussed it in abstract he’d be ok with it. The timing too was terrible – she left her adored baby ballerinas, the group she spent so much time with, the one thing in her life that she was selfless about and that shocked me. Poor Brad was in the worst place too, at a very elite evening, waiting for Lexi to return only to find out from gossip she’d gone... She’s not happy with Nick though – even though he adores her she’s jealous of his co-stars...and takes it out on him. The guy’s done nothing, reassures her constantly that he loves her, wants to marry her, and yet she takes her fears and spoils what they could have. Still, more of her ex’s crop up and she seems to be on a merry go round of love by now. None of it makes her happy though – she says she’s in love each time, and still loves the others. From an early age she seems to see each relationship as being “in love” when it seems to me she’s more in love with the idea of love than the reality. It feels like she’s on a train wreck, she’s a muddled person, looking for something and just hasn’t found it, maybe if she stopped looking at what she wants and valued what she has she’d find it? On the surface she’s bright and self confident, and yet somehow through all these men I get the feeling she just hasn’t found – or maybe won’t let herself find – what she needs. She’s not a horrible person, just someone who seems to have been brought up to think of herself first and last, and really not think about how others will feel about her actions. Even after she leaves Brad for Nick she still harbours thoughts that coming back to Brad is an escape route, that when her time with Nick is up he’ll be waiting, and she’s shocked that he isn’t. She won’t give Nick a proper chance either – seeing their time as having a set shelf life, as if she’s not willing to take a chance, but wants to leave before it ends. That way she’s still in charge and can’t be let down. She’s left a trail of devastated lives behind, and yet though you’d think she’s a horrible person, she’s not, she doesn't intend harm but doesn't seem ever to have been taught to think of others, to look before she leaps, explore all angles etc. Really even though I don’t like her, I feel so very sad for her, she’s not (IMO) going to ever find happiness her way, she’ll just self sabotage it as she has done in the past. Stars: Four, its a thought provoking read for me. I do need the HEA and this just doesn't have it Sad smile but it did make me think very hard about what she was doing and the effects on her and the others. ARC provided by author
