Sadly, we have to go through a lot of angst and a bit of a evil side plot to make things interesting, add in some really odd plans for helping Quinn's parents and you have what ends up being a very enjoyable novel that fits right onto the heels of the previous novel Close to Home and so you might as well get these 2 books together.
4 Stars for an enjoyable day of reading.
Marcus is a hometown boy who left after his mother’s death and made a career as a bodyguard. He’s decided he doesn’t want that stress, so he’s back home to run a bar and avoid Quinn at all costs. From finding her a pesky little girl, to letting his guard down and acting on the attraction he now feels, he knows that he isn’t the one for Quinn, no matter how much he may want to be. Even if she does accept him unconditionally, and life always looks brighter with her around.
For her part, Quinn is the ‘girl from town’ a bit flighty, not known for her ability to stick with things, but she is the town’s Little Girl. EVERYONE watches out for her – and when she is totally serious about Marcus and making him see her as all grown up and worth taking a chance on, she doesn’t seem to be able to get anyone to believe her.
When you add in her parents’ marriage difficulties, and the potential of a ‘fake engagement’ playing in to help Quinn get what she wants (Marcus) it seems as if things are ready to roll forward. And this is where I had problems: Marcus very much showed us that he has lots of issues that he hasn’t come face to face with, yet totally out of character he agrees. And Quinn – well, from the ridiculous “marriage counselor’ that her parents were consulting (think a cross between a lounge lizard and the worst Yahoo answers advice ever) the whole opportunity for the ‘tension’ was lost in caricature. I was disappointed as there was such a wonderful introduction for these two in the earlier book, and the full story fell short.
It’s sad, for Everett’s writing is always wonderful, and the characters are well-built, if completely opposite from expectations, and this does fit into the Sanctuary Island series trajectory, I just wanted more.
I received an eArc copy of the title from the publisher via NetGalley for purpose of honest review. I was not compensated for this review: all conclusions are my own responsibility
Quinn is very open, easy to get to know, and seemed very young! Marcus is a mystery man for the most part, and I liked finding out his story over the length of the book. It is a very heart felt, touching, heart breaking story that really made me feel for him! They seem like an unlikely couple, and despite the odd happenings they find themselves in, I hoped somehow they could find a HEA.
In Home at Last, I liked the feeling of finding love, but at the same time facing the struggles of relationships. All kinds of relationships from family, community, to a couple made up Home at Last, and they all linked together well.
As I read Home at Last it did grow on me and I did feel a range of emotions, but it's not my favorite of this series. Home at Last can be read as a stand alone in this contemporary romance series.
Quinn is the hometown sweetheart. She is lighthearted, caring, moves from job to job and is still trying to figure out who she is.
When Marcus broke up with her, the town sided with her, of course. This puts his business in jeopardy, as none of the town will go there now. Quinn goes to Marcus with a plan to help them both.
The whole issue with Quinn’s parents, and “Dr.” Ron’s involvement had my eyes rolling. I wanted to yell at her dad to grow a pair. Her flighty mom was ridiculous. And Quinn feeling responsible for her parents’ happiness? How old is she?
I found it hard to believe Marcus caved so quickly and easily to Quinn’s request to be her fake boyfriend. This doesn’t jibe with his character in the previous book.
This book focused more on Quinn’s parent’s issues than Marcus and Quinn. Not enough was spent actually with them and working out their issues. This is my second book by this author. I am not inspired to continue with the series.
I voluntarily reviewed an ARC provided by NetGalley.
