After an emotional visit to New York, Caleb and Thaddeus return to find a newcomer on the homestead. Samuel claims to know Caleb but the Alpha’s memories of wartime acquaintances are too hazy for him to be certain. At least, that’s what Caleb tells him.

All Samuel wants is a quiet, safe place to rest—something he hasn’t experienced for a long time. Finding the homestead of

The next episode in the Alpha's Homestead should have been a welcome trip home for this reader but ended up too much "you can't go home again" instead. So, I didn't really like the turn this book took but that doesn't mean I didn't like the book. Somehow, I feel like the author lost her connection to Caleb and Jacob but my dissatisfaction in that still doesn't change that this was a well written book.

Nobody is perfect and this book definitely makes that clear in the lives of Caleb and Jacob and
Not my favourite instalment of the series to be honest, sorry. I was under the impression that this was Thaddeus's story, but to my mind Caleb and Jacob seemed to have far more page time than the young baby Alpha.

Thaddeus finds a mate...someone from Caleb's war torn past, and Jacob does something unforgivable, driving a wedge between himself and Tad. We have a little catch up with Seth and Mal, Peter and Patience, and Ephraim and Joshua...yes, the same Joshua who treated Ephraim so poorly in Hom

I can not tell you how much I love the Alphas' Homestead series. It's definitely one of my all time favourite MM reads and more people need to read it. I'm not gonna say much about the plot here because you need to read them from the start. I know people don't always want to start an established continuing series but these books are quick reads and oh so good, you'll be hooked I promise. Be My Sanctuary was everything I hoped it would be. In this book little Tad is all grown up and finally meets ...more

I really enjoyed this - Thad is such a special one ❤️ and Samuel was perfect for him. I would have like more time with them developing as a pair, but so much was going on with other characters and issues. Let’s hope there’s a bit more follow up in the next book
DNF 37%

This simply seems as if the author wants to add in some stories about the rest of crew at the homestead without the benefit of a bigger, more exciting story. I loved the first three, skipped the fourth as it wasn't MM. I just couldn't find much to like about this fifth book in the series and finally set it aside.

I love the smooth flow of Alex Jane's writing, her deft handling of multiple POVs and the easy cadence of the stories that lure me in with such deeply drawn characters who continue to grow and evolve and keep me rooting for them. I'm always kinda sad when each story ends but so looking forward to the next installment! Poor Jacob and Joshua...can't wait to see Thaddeus and Samuel deal with whatever's brewing up in New York :)

Rough, but still wonderful. I need to keep going to see what happens with Ephriam and Joshua, right now.
Another Good Read

This time , Thaddeus gets his story . And finally the author gives us more of Caleb's background in the war. It's heart breaking and heart warming. It's a winning series, that's difficult to see it coming to an end.

* I was gifted an ARC copy of this wonderful book in exchange for an honest review *

I absolutely LOVE this series and this book is no exception!
This is 5th book in this series and even though it is possible to read it as a standalone I strongly recommend to read them all (or at least first two starring Caleb and Jacob).

This story is wonderfully written, it flows, envelopes You in the world of Alphas and homestead and makes You forget about the reality. The chemistry between Tad and Sam is abs

👍4.5🌟stars 🐺👬🐺
A really good read about MM shifter 💙romance in the late 1800's. Samuel and Thaddeus are the main protagonists, but there are lots of loving couples to go around as troubled wanderer Samuel turns up at former acquaintance Caleb's 🐎ranch and sets new romance and tragedy in action. I had not read the previous books in the series and, though it would have been helpful as background for the ranch extended family, I

I've totally loved this book. The Homestead series is my favorite and this new addition is really wonderful. It's very interesting to see all the characters growing up and getting older, and most of all, Alex Janes' writing is unique and beautiful as usual, and this story touches your heart once again.

This time, we see Thaddeus, who has become a young alpha having to face to his destiny as the heir in New York and, at the same time, we also meet Samuel, a new character who will complicate things
2.5 stars reluctantly rounded up to 3 - I liked most of this story, but it felt incomplete. The ending was so abrupt and left everything (and I do mean everything) up in the air with such uncertainty. Not one thread of this book felt complete. The next book is even shorter than this one, so I don’t have much hope that things will get addressed properly. It feels like the author gave up on this family and did them a disservice by cutting their stories short. I will say this this book has the leas ...more

I have not read the first 4 books of this series but, as I was lucky enough to snag a copy through ProlificWorks, I jumped straight inti Book 5. I loved it.

Although a short book, the relationship between Samuel and Thaddeus evolves at just the right pace. The heat level is quite low, yet appropriate for their characters.

The relationships between a father and son, and to a lesser extent Jacob and Caleb, are strained and leave scope for further development in a future book. The exciting writing al

I am new to this series but it’s a very interesting concept to have a romance back in the 1800s with werewolves and packs. Thaddeus is a young Alpha about to take over the Fletchers pack since his grandpa died and his parents don’t want the responsibility. Tad goes to the homestead to enjoy his family before taking on his pack. He finds Samuel, a drifter who came to visit Caleb. Samuel is older and Caleb’s friend but he is also his mate. Tad is new to the love thing and he has never been interes ...more

I can’t tell you how much I love these books. The ups and downs downs of love and family have sunk into my heart with every story. I devoured it so quickly, couldn’t stop reading needing to know what happens next. I have put off reading this book because I really didn’t want it to end. But I am so glad I finally did because it’s a wonderful ending and hopefully a start of something new.

Strong read

This is not a happy read but one that is about connection. Past traumas and new beginnings. And last but not least sad consequences.

I shed a tear.

Stories of M/M romance with happy endings...eventually.

After spending far too long creating stories in her head, Alex finally plucked up the courage to write them down and realized it was quite fun seeing them on the page after all.

Free from aspirations of literary greatness, Alex simply hopes to entertain by spinning a good yarn of love and life, wrapped up with a happy ending. Although, if her c
