I just love books where the characters pretend that they are in love with each other, only to find out that they weren’t pretending at all. In this story, Kevin has been crushing on Taylor for the past year and a half, but he’s never let on. Meanwhile, Taylor obviously has feelings for Kevin, given that he continuously brags about him when talking to his moms back in Harrington Hills. Despite their mutual feelings for one another, neither has had the courage to push ...more

Though perhaps not completely out of left field, the fight still seemed a bit random and unnecessary. I suppose there had to be some sort of conflict inserted into the story to ruin the happy couple, but this particular one did not feel organic to the story, or even the characters. It honestly f ...more
Your best friend whom you’ve been crushing on for the past few years asks you to accompany him home for two weeks and pretend to be his boyfriend so he can avoid his mother’s matchmaking attempts. What could possibly go wrong? Kevin can’t say no to Taylor when he asks this favor, so Kevin hopes that a broken heart is all the trip will cost him because he really doesn’t want to lose their friendship if he’s unable to keep his ...more
When would-be heir Taylor reaches a certain age, he leaves his pack temporarily to learn how to stand on his own. This coming of age ritual brings him in cont ...more
This story was short and sweet and definitely worth the read. This is a bit predictable in the whole pretend boyfriend turns to more trope. But it certainly kept my interest. I really liked that Ms. Linden didn’t have some of the other typical elements to the trope so it was a bit fresh at the same time. I enjoyed how these two talked about their feelings and what they wanted before either of them got to the point of a needless break up or “miscommunicati ...more
When I picked this book, I knew it would probably appeal to me with it's nice, typical sort of plot and I am happy to say that I did enjoy it.
It was a short, sweet, and easy read that I had no problem getting in to and finishing. Taylor and Kevin were already best friends, but when they get a little pushing from Taylor's mother, things getting interesting, steamy, and sweet pretty quickly.
I liked that the a ...more

We’ve got two mid twenty guys living in the same building who both happen to be wolves. One is the son of an Alpha and the other is what they are calling a lone wolf. Over the months both develop a best friendship. Problem is one of the guys fell in love along the way.
I really enjoyed ‘watching’ these two learn each other during the two weeks prior to the wedding and then a ...more

Rating: 4 out of 5 stars
This was a really enjoyable novella, with a lot in it to love!
- The characters. Both Kevin and Taylor were rich, complex characters, and I loved seeing the way their personalities worked together (and sometimes clashed a bit).
- Gorgeous relationship!
- Wants, needs, and responsibility.
Things I'm on the fence about:
- The world-building.
And the not-so-fond moments:
- The dialogue. Sometimes the language was stilted.
- Taylor's emotions.

I can't say the Leading Me Home is the most original story I have ever read. As a matter of fact, it had many elements that could appear in almost any other romance novel. Friends to lovers, fake relationship, returning home to find your boyfriend, and an unrequited crush on the best friend -- just to name a few. However, they come together to make a sweet, heart-warming story that will keep a smile on your face and make you want to come back to Harrington Hill...more
