Coming Home

Coming Home 
 2 of 5 stars false1/2
No woman ever really forgets her first love. Callie Sorenson is no exception. Hers was tall, tanned, and - as her older brother's best friend - completely off limits.
Danny McCutcheon.
It's a name that Callie hasn't spoken in years, even if the man to whom it belongs has never really been all that far from her thoughts. Or her heart. But now a twist of fate will bring her back to the childhood home she left behind years ago, and to the hometown boy for whom she secretly longed.
When her mother takes a bad fall and breaks her hip, Callie leaves the bright lights of New York City to fly back west and help with the rehabilitation. It's a tense homecoming due to a long time estrangement between mother and daughter, and it drives Callie to confront both a painful personal loss and her unanswered questions about the father who abandoned her when she was just a child.
It also brings her face to face with Danny again, and Callie quickly realizes that old feelings die hard.
But for Danny, it's new feelings that are a problem. Callie is not the young girl he remembers but a woman now, and a very desirable one. They both have reasons to fight the growing attraction between them, but the temptation may just prove to be too much to resist, despite some very real risk to their hearts. The past casts a long shadow over the future, though, and Callie will have to overcome it or else face losing the one man who means the most to her.
Sensuality Level: Behind Closed Doors


****The author provided me with a copy of this book for my honest review****
Callie left home years ago; her father left when she was young and she thought that living the nomad lifestyle would make her understand why he left. She is living in New York City when she gets a call from her deceased brothers’ best friend Danny, the man she loved and never had. Her mother fell off a ladder and needs Callie to come home. Callie realizes she still has feelings for Danny, yet she doesn't want to hurt him with her restless nature. Danny now sees Callie as a woman and these new feelings he has for her, could leave him with a broken heart. Will the two of them take a chance or will fear keep them apart? This is technically a good book, there is nothing wrong with the story and the editing is done wonderfully. Callie is strong and independent, yet she still has this lost little girl inside her. Danny is understanding, good looking and responsible, he is the boy every mom wants their daughter to date. The plot was interesting, girl comes home to help mom and she sees the boy she has always secretly loved. Boy sees girl differently sparks fly and the rest is history. However, as good as all those things were, I just wasn't feeling this book. I can't really put my finger on why, maybe it was because the book was slow or I didn't feel the heat between the couple. If you like your romance books to be pretty much drama free, with a few kisses here and there and a slow build up, then Coming Home is worth a try.
