After having read and loved both HIS Desire and HIS Choice, I was excitedly anticipating the arrival of HIS Return. It was well worth the wait! We read a bit about Jake in the previous books, and knew he had disappeared after a heart-breaking family altercation. Fast-forward four years ... Jake has been located, having barely survived harrowing experiences. Everything has changed back home, and he must fight to reclaim the girl he abandoned. Will Emily welcome him home with open arms or has she ...more
Sheila Kell's HIS series is easily one of my favorites.
The first two books in the series were amazing and put the author on my auto read list.
HIS Return is Jake's story.
After one confusing night with the one woman he's always wanted but never could have Jake's best friend tosses him out, sending him away while he's still trying to come to grips with what happened.
He ends up taking a dangerous job that takes him away for four years.
Four years of his life wasted.
Four years missing the woman he lo

4.5 Coming Home Again Stars!!

This was my first book by Ms. Kell and I was a little concerned that I would be missing part of the story since this is the third book in the HIS series. I'm happy to say I had no problem whatsoever following this story without any real history of the Hamilton family and specifically Emily and Jake's history as the author did a wonderful job of getting me up to speed.

Jake has been gone for four long years and with no explanation of where he was and what he was doing.

I was pulled right into this story. The story flowed well and the story kept you interested. The story has laughs, suspense, pain, and heartbreak.

If you have not read the below I would recommend reading those books(s) first
HIS Desire (H.I.S. #1)
HIS Choice (HIS #2)

This is Emily and Jake’s story. Jake regrets running from Emily. It’s been years but he is back and hoping to face her. But she is in the middle of a ton of danger with a surprise. Can Emily let go of the pain she feels about Jak

My first experience with Sheila Kell was when I read ‘HIS Desire’. I fell in love with her writing and since then I have been following the HIS series. ‘HIS Return is book #4 and can be read as a standalone. A note of warning though after reading one of these books you are going to want to read the remaining books.

This installment tells Emily and Jakes’ story. Emily had a crush on Jake since she was six years old. As she got older, her crush gradually grew into something more meaningful. Jake h

As with my review from last year, this book effing rocked. The balance of "oh hell no" and "aww" moments was great. Sheila has a way of making you go from one emotion to another and back again. Top Notch and so worth the time to read!

I laughed, ooh and aww' and of course cried a couple of times. Always great to reread a. lol that takes you through the entire emotional ladder!!

I have longed for Jake and Emily's story and, as such, was a tad nervous about whether or not Sheila Kell could deliver to my high expectations based on her previous books. There was absolutely no need to be nervous as Ms Kell not only delivered, but surpassed my expectations!

This story packs a powerful, emotional, punch that will leave you breathless as you wipe your leaky eyes! We hear the totality of Jake and Emily's story, about who they were then, who they are now, and what has happened to

I was lucky to be given an advanced copy of HIS Return in exchanged for an honest review.
After enjoying the first two books in this series HIS Desire and HIS Choice I was eager for the next book to come out. And I wasn't disappointed.
His Return focuses on two of the Hamilton family. Emily and Jake.

I was fortunate enough to receive an advanced copy of this, the third book in the series. First, let me be clear, this is NOT a serial or cliffhanger (one of my biggest pet peeves). This book has some serious "feels". I sat down to start reading it and stayed to finish it.. in one day. I just didn't want to walk away.

This is Ms Kell's third book and her story telling is obviously becoming smoother and more natural with each new book. It is smooth, well developed (and not just the main character

In books one and two of the HIS series, we found out that the Hamilton family had a foster brother, Jake. They took Jake in when he was 10 years old, and he and AJ became best friends, as close as brothers, and although Senator Hamilton (the patriarch) never adopted Jake, he was still classed as part of the family and was treated as such. We also found out though that he had been missing for 4 years since AJ threw him out after finding him in bed with his “baby” sist

If you’re looking for a book to pull on your heart string along with solving a good mystery then His Return is that book.

Jake has been out of contact with the Hamilton and the woman he loved for four years. Now, Jack is back. With Jakes return, there are burning questions that must be answered.

Emily never knew that being an Accountant was so hazardous to your health. When Emily uncovers a Ponzi scheme at work. Emily is the way she was, tried to report the misdoings. But, she sooner learns that

Sheila Kell has done it again! I couldn't put this book down! I loved getting to see Jake as we have only heard that he is the Hamilton's foster brother!

I love Jake and Emily's story! They have been through so much and deserve to face what happened 4 years earlier. This book had me in tears often and when I think about this book I still want to cry.

I like how we get to see Reagan and Jason in this book. I would have loved to see more of Jason :)

I can't wait to see what Kell brings us next!!

I have loved every book in this series so far, and this book was no exception. I loved Jake and Emily's story. Just like the other books, it draws you in hook, line and sinker and keeps you on the edge of the seat. I love the whole Hamilton family and that love grows through each book. I can't wait to go on to read book 4.

This was a good read. Not my favorite of this series, but still interesting. There is steam and story, which many authors forget to include something to keep the reader's interest. Worth the time spent.

His Return, is the third title in the HIS Securities series.

Jake and Emily's story is a second chance romance full of emotion, heat, humor, drama, secrets, angst, romance and danger. As with the previous titles in this series, there is a strong focus on love, loyalty and family. As I've come to expect from Ms Kell, this book is well written, entertaining and quite captivating. I had difficulty putting this book down, I was thoroughly engaged with Jake and Emily's tale.

I balled at the end. So much has happened in this book and so many emotions play out throughout the book. I have to say first Emily shame on you. I so was not happy with you at the beginning. At first she didn’t want to even hear Jake out, yes you just had a scare with your daughter but after when things settled you were really cold towards Jake. I mean you really can’t blame him leaving all those years ago after what your brother said can you?

When we see Jake at the beginning of this you are i

Although these stories are stand-alone, as in separate events, I feel they DO NEED to be read in order so please for the full benefit and to not spoil the other 2 books that are already out, read book 1 His Desire and book 2 His Choice first.

I gave this book a full 5 stars, although I am not that keen on

A good addition to the series! I had been waiting for Jake and Emily's story for a while, and I really liked that the reasons for Jake's continued absence were address right away. Jake and Emily have obviously cared for each other for years, and it was great to see them finally get together. Their picnic and scrabble games were really cute ways for them to get to know each other again. I was hoping that Jake's PTSD would have gotten a bit more attention. Amber was adorable, but I was expecting a ...more

I have enjoyed the first two books of this series, and this one did not dissappoint. True to form Sheila will draw all the feels from you. She will have you holding onto the edge of your seat with the suspense this book will bring. All the twist of the couple, the danger, and the wanting to know will be happening next will blow your mind. Their is always a step you find yourself tripping over.

Four years! Four years that Jake was gone. Where the hell had he been? Now we know and it wasn't pleasant. In fact, he almost died. But through it all, he never stopped loving Em. The question is, had Em given up on Jake? Had she moved on? And how would he react when he found out he was a Dad? All is revealed and then some in this book! Things happened that I never saw coming!

I'm in love with Jake

This is book 3 in the HIS Series. Jake and Emily's story. Emily has loved Jake since she was a child. When she turns 18, she gives herself to him, although he was too drunk to fully remember it. After being kicked out of the only family he had left, he leaves. When he is rescued and reunited with Emily and her brothers, so much has changed.
I've loved every book in this series, but this one is my favorite so far. I have a soft spot for Jake.

I was looking forward to reading this book ever since we found out about jake and Emily in the previous books.
A second chance love book is always a great read, especially when it's mixed with drama and excitement.
I love jake, Emily and ambers character and I love the fact we still get to see all over the other brothers and their partners.
Can't wait for what's coming next, I hope a Trent book is on the way.
