Editorial Reviews

Review

“If you’re looking for a sweet contemporary with a little bit of intrigue...look no further. This...will leave readers longing for an oceanfront bar to hang out in.” —RT Book Reviews, 4 stars

“Another cute, romantic trip to Anchor Island...a hugely enjoyable read.” —Fresh Fiction

“I don’t think that there is a more appealing hero than the Teddy Bear type, especially if they are ‘large enough to deserve his own zip code’ like Randy Navarro. Terri Osburn definitely got my attention when she wrote him into the story!” —Leigh Davis, Heroes and Heartbreakers.com First Look

About the Author

Although born in the Ohio Valley, Terri Osburn found her true home between the covers of her favorite books. Classics like The Wizard of Oz and Little Women filled her childhood, and the genre of romance beckoned during her teen years. While Osburn went on to gain a degree in business administration, she couldn’t shelve her love of love stories. In 2007, she decided to put pen to paper and write her own. Just five years later, she was named a 2012 finalist for the Romance Writers of America® Golden Heart® Award. The author of the Anchor Island contemporary romance series, Osburn resides in Virginia with her daughter, an assortment of pets, and her bookshelves full of keepers.


More About the Author

Author of the Amazon and Wall Street Journal bestseller MEANT TO BE, first in the Anchor Island Series, Terri Osburn started putting words on the page in 2007. Five years later, in 2012, she was named a finalist in the Romance Writers of America Golden Heart contest for unpublished manuscripts. Shortly after, she signed with an agent and moved into publication, with her debut releasing from Montlake Romance in May 2013. Terri lives on the east coast with one newly-minted high schooler, two fat and (mostly) happy tabbies, and a hyper Yorkiepoo with attachment issues.

Home to Stay is the third book in this series, and I've read all three. The author was new to me when I started the first book, Meant to Be. I enjoy the writer's descriptive style and her character development. The people feel authentic and the variety of characters can be tracked through the books because they are memorable. A few new characters were introduced in this book, leading me to believe that there will be additional volumes in this series and I look forward to reading them.

There is a very minimal bit of profanity, which doesn't bother me, but the most conservative readers may want to skip this one. I also have to say that the word I especially noticed was appropriate to the personality of the character and the discussion/situation.

I was looking forward to reading the story with these particular lead characters, as soon as I got a chance to read the synopsis for the "soon to be released" book on book discussion websites. I am so happy that it was offered as one of the Kindle First program choices for $1.99 during April, so that I have already been able to read it and write this review.

The characters from the first two books continue to play a role in the plot during this book. I enjoy it when previous characters are still in the mix, since their stories are what drew me along to this point in the continuing plotline. The previous leads have new events in their lives happening in this third book, because there is a nice sense of community on the island. There is enough conflict to be realistic, and enough steady and enjoyable to be a fun read.

I was expecting this book to be more gripping and exciting. To say the least it was boring. It seemed like a weak romance novel. Secret from her past? In the first 10 pages you basically know the secret. After a year of avoiding Randy due to being scared of his size, she goes from fear to love in days. The romance was weak, the lack of plot was weaker. Her big reveal gave basically no additional information. The characters were flat, one dimensional and left much to be desired. I wouldn't recommend it.

I guess if you just want a happily-ever-after book with a few sex scenes written in, then this book is for you. As for me I need something with a bit more plot and character development. So, don't read ahead if you want to read it but I can resist pointing out a few unbelievable things.

Things I learned from this book:
Even if you treat a guy like he is the plague he will still chase you and one day you will suddenly fall in lust and have an orgasm just by kissing him.

You can move to a small town and become BFFs with other women in the town and they will not be curious enough to ask about your past. (I have lived in small towns, no one in a small town is that trusting of strangers)

If you have a crazy stalker (even if there seems to be no evidence he is looking for you) all you have to do is have a reporter write a newspaper article saying that you left the country and your problems are solved! He wouldn't try to find you outside of America, duh! Now, why didn't she think of that 3 years ago!

The story was fun except for all the profanity in the dialogue. It makes me so sad when authors think that profanity enhances their writing when it does just the opposite. I cannot recommend such a book to anyone.

I was so excited to be able to read this book early. I loved the first two books and this one did not disappoint! If you haven't read the first two don't read this one first. It will spoil them!!! If you are looking for a good light hearted funny book this is for you!

Too much usage of the "f" word and too explicit on the sex. Skipped over most of that. Not recommended unless you are into smut.
The story line was good if you could get past the other.

Writing a book is a personal experience and I truly try not to be harsh in my judgments. With this book, however, I could not continue reading. Between the vulgarities and stilted story there was no chance for me to enjoy the experience. I am no prude and can tolerate vulgar language if the story engrosses me. I can also overlook mediocre plot if the writing is lyrical and gripping in other ways. But in this book, the people are one dimensional, the writing style was brusque and common.
