Homeward (Heartward) by Andrew Grey

The one that stayed...and got away...is found when you head Homeward

From the blurb:

Second chances only happen in the movies… right?

For the past several years, Matthew’s life has been one challenge after another. Keeping his sister’s four orphaned kids fed, clothed, housed, and entertained has him run ragged. Now he’s losing the kids’ mentor and maybe his job, if the plant where he works as an electrician shuts down like the rumors say. When his car won’t start outside the hospital, it’s the last thing he needs. Matthew could use a hero… so of course that’s when Lucas Reardon shows up again.

A-list actor Lucas Reardon returned to his Michigan hometown to say goodbye to his father. The last person he expects to see is Matthew Wilson, the one who got away. Lucas helps Matthew out with the car, the kids, whatever he needs. But really, *he’s* the one who needs saving. Years of the fast-paced Hollywood life have worn him down to nothing, and a deranged stalker is making his life hell. Matthew becomes his refuge. But relationships need time to grow and bloom. With the paparazzi breathing down their necks and a deadline on Lucas’s return to LA, can they build a life worthy of the big screen?

Heather's review:

If' you're a fan of single father romance, you'll want to grab this one that will tug at your heartstrings every time the kids mention Uncle Daddy...  and you also get to witness the trials and tribulations of being an A List actor returning home, burying his father and trying to reconnect with his high school boyfriend... with the paparazzi, a stalker and a crazy agent all in the mix...

This was a fast-paced read with some steam, some personal growth, adorable kids and a kick-ass security friend... and I highly recommend you check it out!

Homeward is currently available as an e-book and paperback
