I was a bit lost at first and had the feeling like I had been plopped down in the middle of a story rather than the beginning of one. Kansas and Tobias have a history and their back story was doled out in snippets. They were practically raised together since they grew up neighbors and Kansas’ brothers were Tobias’ best friends. For years, they danced around their attraction, never acting on it because they didn’t want to ruin the family-like bond that surrounded them. One hot kiss blew that out of the water, but then Tobias disappeared the very next day without a word to her and was gone for almost 2 years.
He returned completely burned out, thinking that he wasn’t good enough because of what he was forced to do while he was gone. Kansas, although she pined for Tobias, didn’t wait for him. I loved this about her. She tried to find a man, but none ever measured up to Tobias.
Their reunion was scorching hot. NJ Walters can write a sex scene that will make anyone all hot and bothered. There was also lots of feels to this book. I felt the remorse Tobias was feeling as he realized what he sacrificed by taking on a long term assignment, no matter how good the cause. I also felt the extreme chemistry and the longing these two had for each other.
Unfortunately, the book spans only a 24-hour period. For me, this was more like the final chapters of a really good book, and I want the first part. The action lover in me wanted to be along for Tobias’ top secret, super dangerous assignment and I wanted to be there for Kansas’ ordeals too. Her job sounded almost as interesting as his and had its own dangers.
Coming Home was quick, sexy, had lots of emotions to it and I enjoyed it, but I would have loved to have the rest of the story.
I voluntarily reviewed a complimentary copy of this book.
Tobias is a burned out (almost former) DEA agent who has come home to deal with his late grandfather's estate. Kansas is the little sister of his two best friends. They have a past, as friends who shared one passionate kiss, but those feelings are ones that Tobias was never prepared to deal with. Perhaps it's why he walked away immediately after that kiss and she hasn't seen him since, well until now that is, over two years later. She's being hassled by some men who are upset with her for taking in one of the men's girlfriends into the shelter she works for. When Tobias steps up and helps her out of the trouble she's in, she welcomes him back with open arms, and an open heart.
I like Coming Home, it packs a lot of feelings into a short timeline. I wish it were longer and that we had gotten to see more of their new relationship, but as it stands it's well rounded, has 2 great characters (4 if you count her brothers) and explosive chemistry. Can't wait for more of NJ Walters!

Coming Home by N.J. Walters this is a short story. I felt like it was more of a snippet of these character's lives. I would like to some day read a longer story with them in it. Get more into their personalities.
Tobias is coming home. The past year and half have felt like a waist to him. He was off in the drug enforcement for the government but he never felt like he fit in or made a difference. For him the world is no longer a black and white place to live. The shades of gray are getting to him. He has been given six months off but he knows he is not going back. He has come home to stay. He also has a new mission to get the woman who once got away.
Kansas is sexy and brave. She is a take charge sort of woman. She is willing to put her heart on the line for one man, and that is Tobias. She is a faithful person and a fighter. She might be in the fight of her life with Tobias' demons.
I really liked this start of a great story. I think there is more yet to be explored and I would love to read that too. If you want to read some powerful characters you will not forget this is the one to pick up.
Five Shooting Stars
There are about 4 scenes total (the reunion, the sex, the morning after w/ the brothers making an appearance and finally I've always loved you-let's move in together).
If you have a 30 minute train/subway commute, this is enough to keep your mind occupied. If you're looking for more than that, I'd give this a pass.
I received an ARC of this book, via Net Galley, in exchange for a fair and honest review.
