Life in rural Colorado fifteen years after the second U.S. Civil War is perilous. Van and his girlfriend Hadas only recovered from the attack that killed Van’s wife because their community helped them heal. The warmth Van and Hadas share isn’t the love he lost, but it’s precious. He’s content.

Skye Kilaen
The Home I Find With You, my first polyamorous romance, is out now on Kindle and in KU. The book has:
- People working together to survive, heal, and support each other even in difficult circumstances. Less grim post-apocalypse and more hopepunk optimism.
- M/M romance with light D/s elements.
- Polyamory, wherein one MC has a girlfriend, and she very much approves of him dating the other MC - but also there's a mini-arc about that first MC and his girlfriend successfully figuring out their own rel

Although my preferred genre is lesfic, I enjoyed this story more than the first book I read by this author Get It Right. Other than a few instances of choppy writing that threw me out of the story, it flowed better.

I haven't seen many authors publish a (mostly) M/M book after publishing a F/F book, and I hope this book reaches the right audience.

If I hadn't been a lover of post apocalyptic stories, I likely would've have picked it up. But I digress. If the blurb appeals, give this one a shot. I
I received an early copy from the author for content notes. This in no way influences my review; all words thoughts and opinions are my own.

Skye is proving herself to be very good at writing sweet, emotional romances! I loved the growth of characters and learning to better communicate, as well as seeing all these different people figure out dynamics that work best for them and their needs. If you're looking for more polycule type polyamorous romances with a hopeful chosen family post-apocalyptic
4.5/5 Stars

Once again Skye Kilaen has written a beautiful novel so full of hope and love that I absolutely devoured in the space of a day! This is my fourth read from Skye, including Knock Me Down, and I can safely say that her writing just keeps getting better and better! The world building in this book was so, so great - the small, abandoned, post second civil-war town setting was developed so strongly that I could picture everything so clearly in my head as we followed the two main characters
It was profoundly strange to read a dystopian romance set in a United States after a climate change and racism driven civil war while my city and state were going through a climate driven disaster exacerbated by racist policies. If it had been written by another author, I probably would have put it aside as too close to home, but Skye Kilaen writes with such kindness that it was a balm to read about her characters working together as a community to survive.

This book was like juggling flamethrowers, knives and kittens at the same time and it totally worked.

I was supposed to be asleep two hours ago.

No regrets though.

Also, damn that was good!

Disclaimer: I received an arc of this book for honest review and I nah have to go buy some backlist so realt, everyone wins here.

This was a really fantastic read: An emotionally thoughtful book with great depth to the various characters and the balances found and developing in their relationships.

There's a full list of CW on the website for the bookbut a few main ones- violence and death as part of a post civil war society; non-negotiated D/s dynamic; grief; internalised ableism

Set in a period after a future civil war, we are based in one of the new communities set up, and mainly gollow the development of a relationship

I read chapter 1 early February, then put it down because I had other books to finish on a timeline, so I read the last blast of it in a period of four days.

I received this ARC from the author in exchange for a review - that doesn't affect how my review will be.

First and foremost - I love the relationship between the characters - this is more a character driven book than a plot driven book. The characters talk to each other. This story explores a post apocalyptic war and the struggling groups o

Mild spoilers!





I read an ARC and loved this! I was especially impressed with the way the author subtly worked the post-apocalyptic setting into scenes that were focussed on something else with just little details like saving beer-bottle caps to use on the next batch, saving scraps of lumber left over after a building project, having a town medic but having to go to a larger settlement to see a doctor, etc. It really brought home that these people were just managing to

In a post-apocalyptic world where civilization is fragmented following the Second Civil War, resources are scarce and the environment is inhospitable, surviving isn’t easy. Van leads his town’s defense force and tries to keep his community together as best he can, even though he’s still reeling from the loss of his lover and Dom. Clark has walled himself off from emotional connection of any kind, dazed and nearly broken from the war, his recent accident that has left him in chronic pain, and a f ...more

An enjoyable story that has both heavy, sad moments and light, funny moments. Featuring wonderful characters

This story is set in a post-civil war 2 America caused by white supremacists - No surprise there. The war has ended but life is not the same. Clark ran away from his town and moved to the town his mum was living in. He meets Van there. I liked how Clark and Van interacted - How Clark could be confident but also awkward at times. There were sad moments in the story but there were also plent

What do you get when you blend post-apocalyptic and romantic tropes? This awesome read. As someone who really enjoys both genres, this book hit the spot for me. There's a great balance between peril (without the threat of sexual assault - rare in my experience with post-apocalyptic stories) and gentle scenes that build up to affection between certain characters. Skye's a really gifted writer and I'm glad she shared this story with us! ...more

This novel took me by surprise because it's not usually one i would enjoy. Characters like Clarke, if not written well, really turns me off and i have problems with books where i don't understand the world by chapter three. However, this book really kept me hooked. Of course the poly tag helped. i rarely find any good books with polyamory in it. so this was a treat for me. ...more

A quiet, hopeful, slow-burn M/M story that stays with you long after you're done reading
Here's my problem with post-collapse stories: I refuse to believe that people will jump on the first chance to revert into a Mad Max kind of chaos and anarchy, killing and looting and being "every man for himself". And yet, most books and movies keep trying to convince us that this is the case.
Skye Kilaen goes another way: she has created a post-collapse world that is as intricate as it is wholesome. Some pe

Skye Kilaen writes queer romance, both contemporary and science fiction, that is sometimes about polyamorous relationships.

Skye started writing fiction in elementary school on a Smith Corona electric typewriter because that's all people had back in the early 1980s. She didn't realize she wanted to read and write romance until much later, when it finally dawned on her that she adored X-Men comics f
