Jacquie's Review:

Okay, so it took me a little while to warm into the story since I'm used to this author's PNR books, but once I did, I loved it.

Casey was just... perfect. He didn't let a little miscommunication get in the way of a good thing with Dev. He went after what he wanted after a few pep talks though and got his man and something he's good at.
Dev was floundering, but he didn't let his pride get in the way. Once he and Casey clicked, he let him in.
I loved Home, and all it stood for and would happily read several books of all the guys in Home finding their man. Kenny first, please!

Miki J's review:

I absolutely loved love loved this book !!! It's not overly angsty, low steam/slow burn and has plenty of depth to sink you teeth into !! (hehehehehe, couldn't resist !!) We got two guys who are trying to do something which are totally out of their wheelhouse ....and it takes a special town, quite a few kitchen mishaps and one special cat to put them both on track of where they should be and what they should be doing. I loved seeing Casey getting his confidence and Dev, being able to grieve and move on...... I will definitely be returning to Home !!! (and this series !!)
