Where do I begin with this review...... I LOVED LOVED LOVED this story. After reading it I had to sit and digest what I just read because I was in need of a tall glass of water for the steaminess and the suspense of this story.

Beck and Kelsey are high school sweethearts that were together and at the end of high school the separated because they didn't know what to do with their lives. Fast forward ten years and Kelsey is the owner of an inn and Beck is a detective. Their lives could not be more

I was pleasantly surprised by Coming Home to you the debut novel by Claire Raye. I was intrigued right away by the blurb and it didn't take long to suck me in and keep me smiling.
I adore second chance love stories but find they are always a delicate balance of love or hate for me. I tend to need to understand the initial separation to be able to believe in the

Okaay, where to start...

First off, this is not my "Go to" genre. You will almost always find me buried in an MC/Biker Romance or anything with an Overly Overbearing Hot Ass Aplha in it. **I do love me some alpha!!**

In saying all'a that I was hands down pleasantly surprised how much I actually enjoyed Coming Home.

This was a very exciting and suspenseful read. The H is very protective and possessive of the heroine, even though, he kind of gave up that right when he left for, IMO, a very ridiculous reason.

So, while it was a good read - there were several things that aggravated me - and are possible triggers for any readers, so MILD Spoiler Warning Here*******

1 - The reason why he left. There really wasn't a good one. They were both madly in love, had the perfect romance, knew they were meant to be, but the

This story starts 10 years ago in Rockport where Beck walks out on his high school sweetheart, Kelsey, breaking her heart. He moves to Boston to be a detective but she stays in the small town where she grew up. 

Even 10 years on Kelsey is still hung up on Beck and hopes that he will come back for her. When a stranger comes to the Inn that she now owns and asks for her on Memorial Day weekend, she's sure that it's him, but has a terrible shock when she realises it's not, it's her stalker ex-boyfri

Wow. This is a fast paced , sexy, page turner of a book. Beck is the strong alpha male who left his hometown, family and girlfriend behind 10 years previously. Kelsey is our heroine who is making the best of things since her soul mate broke her heart. Now Kelsey is in danger from a crazy ex. Can Beck protect her and will she let him?
I was impressed at the dramatic crescendo of the story. It was not glossed over, as can happen sometimes.
There is lots of sex and swearing in this book so if that of

Turns out home really is where the heart is!
Young love can be powerful. Sometimes it is so powerful that it lasts a lifetime. Kelsey and Beck had that kind of love once. Small town living was never what Beck wanted for himself. Kelsey found small town life endearing. When Beck decided to leave for the big city of Boston he asked Kelsey to go with him, but when she said she couldn’t go he left and never looked back.
Ten years later both Beck and Kelsey feel as if they are missing a part of themsel

This book is a great read.
Kels is a confident and strong girl who can take care of herself. She is happy with her life in a small town and leading her inn, that she inherited from the parents.
Beck on the other side is suffocating in a small town, when everyone knows everyone. He can't stand all the gossip and he wants to be a detective which he can't achieve in a small town like this.
After ten years he comes back, because his girl, the girl that he left for his hot shot detective job, is in tro

Whoa this is a hot one! Kelsey and Beck light these pages on fire. The plot kept me guessing and I knew how I wanted their story to end from the beginning. My guesses were incorrect, but that made the solving of the puzzle more enjoyable because I didn’t figure it out. This would be a fun beach or weekend read and gave me just the break I needed. The banter was great and I loved the secondary characters just as much as Kels and Beck. Looking forward to the next in this Rockport Beach series!

This was picked up on recommendation of other readers and is the first book in the Rockport Beach series. The narrative was completely addictive and not at all expected. The characters were well developed and completely relatable. Claire Raye has created a story line that leaves the readers heart pounding with her twisted suspense and steamy romance scenes. Highly recommended.

If you’re looking for a sweet and sexy second chance romance with a great story line that includes some mystery, look no further!! I got completely hooked by the storyline, I was curious as to when Kelsey’s stalker would get caught and I was most importantly waiting for Beck (sexy as F detective) to finally decide he could be back in the small town and be with his girl.

Beck and Kelsey dated for years when they were younger, they were the talk of the town and everyone was in their business expect

I received a complimentary copy of this book from the author in exchange for an honest review.

Coming Home to You by Claire Raye is the author’s debut novel. It is a superb first outing.

This second-chance-at-love romance is also a fast-paced thriller. Much more than the romance story line, the suspenseful tracking of the stalker had me riveted to my chair turning pages. The tension builds nicely as the story reaches its crescendo. There are plot points that had me biting my nails and wanting to

Book Review - Coming Home to You by Claire Raye - *** too much sex spoiled the story

Now there may be lots of you reading the tag line and reaching for that one click button, and to that I say, you go girls. I’m a picky reader and there has to be enough story around the sex. For me, this book far too much relied upon the sexual relationship between the main characters and not on rebuilding an emotional connection.

Anyway, i’m getting ahead of myself, so lets get to the story. Ten years ago, Beck b

I’m a huge fan of romantic suspense. And this book did not come up short on the suspense. It's also a second chance romance, which everyone loves.

Kelsey is a strong woman. When a past boyfriend doesn’t bleed into the past like he should, she refuses to become a whimpering victim. I loved that about her. She remains strong and continues on with life. However, she’s not an over-confident glutton for punishment either and knows when to get help. Enter ex-boyfriend, turned police detective who DID b

Coming Home to You is one of the most romantic and thrilling books I’ve read this year. I absolutely loved the story line and the characters in the book. As soon as the story begins you are pulled in and you never want to put it down. It is one of those books that keep you interested and reading until the very end.

Kelsey is such a wonderful woman. I loved her character instantly, but of course the beginning of the book will have your heart breaking for her. Then she has one of the worst things

Coming Home to you, written by Claire Raye, was amazing! I highly recommend it to anyone who is a fan of the Crossfire Series, by Sylvia Day. Within the first chapter, I was already sucked into the drama and a complication of what is Kelsey and Beckham crazy love story.
The title is perfect for this book. Beckham comes home to protect his first love because she has the unfortunate luck of picking up a crazed stalker. This will be the first time in 10 years that Beckham has come home to his littl

I love that you can see how much Beck and Kelsey still ove each other eveb after not speaking for 10 years. The idea of the stalker worked really well and it had me hooked throughout with his stabilty as you never knew what was going to happen next with it.

I am a huge romantic--second chance love stories like Coming to You ooze love and romance. This book reads like Nicholas Sparks with a splash of sexy steam and dirty talk. I love the alternating points of view of both Kelsey and Beck and the first-person format is my favorite.

The story takes you through the lives of Beck and Kelsey who were childhood sweethearts separated by their opposing life choices and new careers in different areas. Fast forward 1

As childhood sweethearts Beck & Kelsey forsee a future with each other, until Beck left Rockport to pursue his dreams. A decade later his job enables him to return to protect Kelsey from a stalker.

Whilst Kelsey cannot resist Becks romantic advances, knowing he will eventually leave her again has her holding back. During all of this Kelsey's stalker ups his game in bid to make her his.

It is not very often that I read a book that has me so hot and bothered that I cant think straight but I am telling you all, that this one did. Holy crap this book was steamy and had a great storyline to boot. I could not put it down, This is the debut novel from Claire Raye and she is a new author I will definitely be keeping an eye on as I think she will do well. This get a very well deserved 5 stars from us.

A great read! This book has it all--a good plot, suspense, romance, and heat! Lots of heat! Claire Raye has done an amazing job putting all of that together in a balanced way--and in her debut novel on top of it! The characters seem like people you would meet in real life. The attraction between Kelsey and Beck is the stuff fantasies are made of. I can't wait for the next book in the series--I'm hooked!
