I have read these books individually and here is my opinion of Return the first book in the series. I was honored to receive the first book (Return) from Meli Raine for my honest opinion of the book and the first word that come to my mind is WOW and then I did not expect that to happen! I loved her first series which started with "Finding Allie" and I was so very excited to be given the opportunity to read this first book in her new series...with that said I will warn all of you that this is the ...more

Did Not Get Home!

This was such a disjointed book for me unfortunately I simply was so turned off I stopped reading at 50%, which was too long already.

There was nothing to like about the heroine; her inner monologues about EVERYTHING was a huge turn off. Initially I believed more of the story would flesh out and the musings would reduce if not stop altogether but they got worse! She kept repeating her woes over and over again and everything about her feelings, thoughts, I mean everything.

Fantastic! Can anyone blame Carrie for wanting justice, for taking back her life. Unfortunately, something's not quite right. Women are being kidnapped, people are hiding information and others are trying to threaten Carrie. Through it all, sexy police officer, Mark, looks at Carrie with hunger in his eyes. Is this hunk of an ex-boyfriend keeping his own secrets? Does he know more than he should? Does he want Carrie back or is he just trying to protect her?

Desperate to clear her
I loved how the first book in the series started. Really enjoyed how it kept me on the edge of my seat but then it steadily went downhill. H was too wishy washy for an alpha lead and h def had too many tstl moments. I'm all for drama in my books but man...that was too much especially for such a lack luster finish at the end.

This was a good story, but it got a bit to convoluted for me at the end.

I loved this series. It was old tropes written in a fresh way, making them new and unpredictable again. It was a beautiful love story and Edge of your seat thriller in one. I didn't know what would happen next. The main characters were relatable. I also loved how we got the point of view of both Male and female lead characters. I have read all the series to date and can't get enough.

So much strength

I know this book is not a true story but feel there is someone somewhere that lived this. Page turner to keep the story unfold and see how much strength one person can have.

What an extraordinary literary experience so deftly scripted by Meli Raines. Reading Chase's story only peaked my curiosity- wow what a thrilling adventure. Bravo!!

Always Amazing

I don’t care what name she’s writing under I’m always loving the books, characters and plots. Nothing but amazing in this trilogy that’s part of a much bigger story.

Thrilling read

I had a hard time getting into the story but ended up really liking it. The story is told through the point of view of the main character. It gets a little drawn out at times. Once the action and suspense kick in it gets much better. Just realized that some of the secondary characters have their own stories. So, now I will have to check those out

This is an awesome series, I hope you enjoy it too.

Book 1- I found Meli Raine in the Breaking Away series and was happy to learn there would be a story about Mark, Chase's brother. This story is filled with love, hate, suspense, heartbreak, lost love and lost family. Carrie left without a word three years ago and Mark wants answers but he will have to give his own answers too. Mark is the officer who arrested her father on drug charges and he was later killed in prison. Now Carrie is back in her

The Coming Home Series Box set by Meli Raine
A box set with all the books. Great! I read the books separately and it was a rollercoaster of emotions with so much suspense, intrigue and scary situations. The narrations were amazing creating an atmosphere of mystery that kept my interest all the time.
Three years ago Carrie’s father was convicted and imprisoned accused of dealing with drugs. She knew he was wrongly-convicted and left her home to be near him. But, he died in prison and she retu

I enjoyed this box set. I have previously read all of these books as they were released and just re-read them all again. There is a lot that is going on and you really need to pay close attention so that you don't miss any subtle hints.

Mark seemed like a nice guy when we met him in Keeping Allie but I cannot picture that same man as the one we have in this series. I am hoping that things will become clearer in the next book because right now I am not liking him much. Carrie has returned ho

Just WOW!! This is the first book in a new series by Meli Raine. This series has the potential to push the limits. I can't wait to see what comes next.

Reunion is a perfectly pulse-pounding and emotionally intense ending to this captivating series. Nothing felt like it was left out or unexplained. I was left feeling highly satisfied and completely happy with the way this series blossomed unexpectedly and yet naturally. The storyline was utterly heart-wrenching and at the same time undeniably uplifting in its beautiful message that was portrayed by such outstanding characters. My heart will forever carry a piece of this outstanding journey with ...more

Return (Coming Home #1) by Meli Raine (Author)
Outstanding! Ms. Raine does it again giving us an amazing story full of raw emotions, suspense, intrigue and a hint of steamy passion. The characters of Carrie and Mark are just beginning to developed and show us their personalities. However, if you read Ms. Raine’s Breaking Away Series you will have some understanding of what drives Mark. This is one of those books where you can’t wait to see wh

Meli Raine has a way of writing that pulls you into the story and keeps you wondering where it will go next. This is the story of Carrie, who returns home. She snuck out of town one night three years ago to follow her father who was wrongly convicted and sent to a federal prison. The book has lots of twists and turns with interesting characters that are developed enough to make you love them or hate them and can't wait to see where the story goes.

Mark and Callie are intriguing characters who have a mixed and unusual past. Mark is full of secrets but gradually opens up to Callie who finds that the man she once loved isn't who she believes him to be. The connection between the two is instant and old feelings are hard to hide.

The story is engaging and action packed. Some of the things that happen come as a complete surprise. As I was reading I thought, 'there is now way the author would do that to this character' but knowing the author thr

Intense cat and mouse romance. Your know the drill, enemy outside ........ victim goes outside to investigate. You scream at the pages .....don’t go there. I loved the books but in parts I was skipping pages where the story became repetitive information. Carrie drove me mad with her guilt trip. Still a good read though. Who is the enemy, who does Carrie trust?

I read all three of these books separately. They are now all together in one fantastic set. Carrie comes to town after her father's death. She never dreamed she would be back but a job offer brings her back. For some reason someone wanted her to return. Not knowing who it is and why they want her there puts her in danger. When she returns she is reunited with her ex Mark. What happens in these three books is suspenseful, scary and heart warming. Can Carrie survive the danger from the unknown and ...more

Wasn't sure what to expect. The beginning started of as a typical romance so I wondered how the suspense would factor in, but shortly after the introductions of heroine and hero we are thrown into some major situations. The box set follow Carrie after her return to her home town after her dad dies under some suspicious circumstances and she tries to figure out the truth. She meets up with her old flame Mark and try to rekindle a rocky relationship. For suspense it is humorous at times, shocking ...more

I really did like this series. You need to read all 3 books (although in the series set it just reads as 1 book anyways) to get the ending of the story, but, as I have said before, I don't mind this when the series doesn't go on forever, when the writing and the story are good, and when the price is not ridiculous. The books have romance, and intrigue, unexpected aspects to the ending, the character development is good, and I had a hard time putting it down. I will buy more books by this author ...more

The Coming Home Series

I liked this set. Some parts more than others. There were times when I didn't like Carrie and thought she was immature. But then I would have to remember that the character is only 22 years old and was forced out of her comfortable life to a hard reality 3 years prior and then finding out some people and things in life are worse than she could imagine. Still a good set and I plan to read about Drew.
