I didn't just like this book, I absolutely LOVED When You Make it Home, and anything written by Claire Ashby in the future will be on my virtual bookshelf to be devoured greedily in one sitting, because I simply couldn't put this book down. I admit I had a ton of previous obligations, and knowing I had committed today to the author, I started reading the book last night at 10:00pm. I'd decided the day before I'd be keeping the same sleep schedule with an hour variance max, because supposedly keeping a consistent sleep schedule helps prevent obesity.

Once I got into the first couple of pages and Theo and Meg really meeting for the first time coincidentally, the book had me enthralled and sleep schedule be damned. I read it on my iphone, and while listening to my husband snore peacefully, I read far into the night--even getting out of the bed to sit on the floor twice to continue reading when my phone needed charging. I finally wrapped up When You Make it Home at 4:00am.

Anyhoo, onto the logistics of the book. Meg, pregnant and conflicted with family issues and former boyfriend baggage, and Theo, the veteran wounded in Afghanistan, made for an unlikely but wildly appropriate couple. The author's portrayal of the emotions of a wounded vet coming home in pain and feeling as though his life no longer had purpose resonated with me. I spend at least once a month with my uncle at the Atlanta Va, and seeing the maimed and wounded while going down the corridors of that depressing place and is utterly heartbreaking. Theo's battle with his personal demons and injuries were equally heartbreaking, and Meg's conviction to hide her pregnancy as long as possible initially seemed ludicrous but made complete sense as her character is fully revealed throughout the course of the novel.

Claire Ashby must not want me to sleep if she’s going to write books like this. Ha! Seriously, I adored this book!! I know a book is a keeper if I think about it while doing other things – this book fit the bill! This debut author has done everything right! Loved both Meg and Theo. It took Meg a little while to grow on me, but in the end I couldn’t turn the pages fast enough. I can only hope there will be that there might be a story for Steve and Chelsea. Would also like to know Ellie and Jake’s story. Can’t wait for more from this author.

This was a lovely novel that I consider to be a solid good read. When You Make It Home is a very emotional story about the relationship that develops between Meg, a pregnant single woman, and Theo, a veteran and amputee. As much as I love the premise of two broken people learning to heal themselves through love, it didn’t quite live up to my expectations.

My biggest issue with the book was that I couldn't quite connect with Meg. I get that she was dealing with pregnancy hormones, but I found her behavior far too erratic to keep up with at times. I loved the Meg she was when she was with Theo – she was happy, caring, and loving. But the Meg that appeared when she let her insecurities slip in or worried about others judging her frustrated me because she would make herself and many of the people around her miserable. As for Theo, I absolutely adored him. Despite their less than impressive first meeting, he befriended Meg and basically infiltrated her life. Even though I knew why he was doing it, I was heartbroken for both of the characters when Theo left Meg. But I could have smacked her – yes, even with her being pregnant – when she refused to talk to him when he came back. Thankfully, Theo refused to be turned away and kept at her until she finally talked to him. While I wouldn’t expect to find sex scenes involving a pregnant woman sexy, the author writes them in such a way that Theo makes you forget that Meg is pregnant, thus making the scenes very stimulating.

What makes this book especially difficult for me to rate is that there are parts of the story that I loved, parts that I liked, and parts that were just “eh” for me.

'When You Make it Home' is the first book that I've been able to read this summer and it was a fantastic kick off to my summer reading! I love most of the characters and appreciate what the others brought to the story... I've read many romance books thru the years and this one was unique to my library... A whole new set of circumstances! My favorite thing about the book other than the love story is the intertwining of the characters - a few of their connections really caught me by surprise. The only regret I have about the book is that I couldn't put it down and now I must search for something new! Hope this author comes out with something else soon!

Loved this book!!! It is perfect for summer/holiday break reading. I picked it up and was immediately caught up in the characters and plot. I couldn't put it down! A previous reviewer compared this author to Jennifer Weiner and I totally agree. Reading about the main character Meg, like Weiner's characters, felt like reading about a best girlfriend. I hope to get to read more from Claire Ashby!!!
