My Only Home (My Only Home #1)
The night before Noah Hill left his hometown of Mountain View, he had a drunken sexual tryst with his best friend, Lucas Wesson. Deeply in the closet, Noah is horrified at his behavior, and terrified of what Lucas would think of him. He left the next morning without saying goodbye, and effectively cut off all ties. He returns five years later to help his father, and runs i...more
Boring and predictable. I kept on reading because Luke's daughter, Lily, was cute, and I was hoping the book would pick up.
In fact, I started liking it even less. And all because of Noah's selfishness toward the end. He didn't even really consider living in Mountain View but he was actively trying to get Luke to move to LA. Let's see. Luke has a house, a successful business he just started, his entire family, and his daughter's school in Mountain View. And he's expected to drop all tho ...more

Hello and welcome to another excellent Pepper Espinoza tale. I have to say that Pepper has been a personal favorite of mine for quite some time and she never fails to keep my attention and this book is no different.
My Only Home is all about Noah and Lucas, two best friends who grew up together in a small town and were pretty much everything to each other until one drunken night where they went from friends to lovers. Too bad Noah didn’t remember all the details or he cou ...more
However I got my happy ending so this one get 3 stars from me. I think the potential was there but this story didnt really delve into the emotions to much. Instead we only fleetingly touched on issues (like the relationship with his dad) I still have ...more
Boy1 leaves town, returns, reconnects with boy2, leaves town again, comes back for a funeral, then leaves again.
FOr the most part, This was nice. I was hoping for more angst, but the story is more along the lines of a regular modern romance. This may have been intentional, but the story could benefit from a particular problem for the main characters to solve. The heat level is very low and occurs towards the end.
A nice, easy and short read. It was an enjoyable read, tho there wasn't much to wrote home about. The book was plain, but it ended before I had a chance to get sick of the flavor - I guess this is one of those cases where short length actually work out great. XD
Ms. Espinoza also collaborates with Vivien Dean, and they publish as Ja ...more
