The location was perfect, description made me feel like I was watching Jack and Melanie throughout the story. I loved the characters, Jack and Melanie both had different personalities and different perspectives. This gave much needed contrast to the story. Although Melanie was bit annoying at times with her coldness, it fit in the story because of what she had endured in past. On the other hand Jack who understood her and had faced his share of hardships was patient with her and helped her out in every way he could.
This was something I liked most about Jack, he wasn't a quitter. He was determined and he knew what he wanted, he wasn't impatient or immature either. He was a perfect balance of hot and cold. I loved the kids in the story, Melanie's son Ryan was so cute. Jack's family also played it's part in helping them without being so pushy, except his mother who was more than determined to do anything to see him getting married.
Overall, Finally Home is a lovable story of two people and two families who are making their way home. It's more about mending each others hearts than two hearts meeting and living happily ever after, it's a story of everyone coming together and accepting each other.
I received an ARC from the author in exchange of an honest review.
Honestly, this book was an okay read. It just seemed to be lacking something. The story was all there for it to be really good, but I went to bed with only 10% of the book left to read and was fine walking away from the story. That's not the way it should be.
From the very start, I had an issue with Jack as he realized he was being pushed into a marriage he didn't want. In his own words, he seriously needed to grow a pair. Because he was afraid of being talked into a marriage he didn't want (hello, I can't respect a hero who can be pushed into a marriage he doesn't want), he lied to his fiance about why he was breaking it off by telling her that he's in love with the manager of his hotel. What he doesn't realize at the time is that this manager is hiding a pretty big secret about her past. But by telling this lie, he begins to notice Melanie in a different light.
Melanie is a woman with a past that she's desperate to keep hidden. Her priority is to keep her young safe happy and healthy. She is not happy with Jack's attention towards her. Even though he's gorgeous, intelligent, a great guy with an amazing physique, she continues to push him away, thinking that he won't understand about her history. She has reason for her reticence....she's been burned by those she loved in the past...namely her parents, when they didn't stand by her when the accusations started flying. If she couldn't trust them, then why/how would she ever trust anyone else? I understood that aspect of the story, but there were other things that caused issues.
There were things I really loved about this book:
*I like that Jack is a former footballer so he knows a bit about paparazzi and how bad the press can get.Read more ›
I often venture out of my comfort zone to try new authors -- more often than not I'm rewarded with a new adventure. This time I was very disappointed. I think my main problem is the lack of romance, or should I say, the fact that the romance between Jack & Melanie seemed lacking - and even a little forced. My favorite relationship in the book is between Jack & Ryan, Melanie's son.
I'd say the majority of this book revolved around Melanie's past. Even after Ms. Scott delved into Melanie's background, I couldn't sympathize with her, and towards the end of the story, when her past is revealed to everyone I felt that she over dramatized everything. Another thing that bugged me about her is she is extremely overbearing when it comes to Ryan; to the point of WoW give the kid a break.
Even though, Jack was a very well developed character, and believably written, he wasn't all that easy to like - Who wants a hero who can't stand up for himself? Not Me. Also even though I felt that Melanie was over dramatizing her issue - Jack never seemed to gain an understanding.
