Today, I am delighted to host the Blog Tour organized by TBR and Beyond Tours for It All Comes Back to You!
After Kiran Noorani’s mom died, Kiran vowed to keep her dad and sister, Amira, close. Then out of the blue, Amira announces that she’s dating someone and might move cross-country with him. Kiran is thrown.
Deen Malik is thrilled that his older brother, Faisal, has found a great girlfriend, even if it’s getting serious quickly. Maybe now their parents’ focus will shift off Deen, who feels intense pressure to be the perfect son.
When Deen and Kiran come fact to face, they silently agree to keep their past a secret. Four years ago–before Amira and Faisal met–Kiran and Deen dated. But Deen ghosted Kiran with no explanation. Kiran will stop at nothing to find out what happened, and Deen will do anything, even if it means sabotaging his brother’s relationship, to keep her from reaching the truth. Though the chemistry between Kiran and Deen is undeniable, can either of them take down their walls?

Farah Naz Rishi’s “It All Comes Back To You” is one of the year’s best young adult contemporary novels with diverse representation! The plot centres around Kiran and Deen, who dated four years ago but have been estranged after Deen ghosted Kiran. As a result, when their older siblings begin dating, the blast from the past has a significant impact on them both. While one is trying to protect their sibling even if it means sabotaging their relationship, the other can meet any ends to make sure that their relationship sees its happy ending.
“Love on the other hand, is an act. A practice. A decision.”
The plot of the story was indeed quite unique. It was well planned and kept me hooked till the end. The transitions were quite commendable. From a virtual world to a real-world, the plot was carried out beautifully.
The characters seemed quite well thought of. I could tell how rich and diverse they were. Not just the central characters but the side characters did leave a powerful impact on the story.
“Love is Messy. Love is Work.”
The writing of the author was quite exceptional! I could see how well researched and rich her storytelling was. It was indeed a pleasure to read her writing. I can’t wait to read more from this author!
