Three years after Jacob Carpenter landed on Caleb Fletcher’s doorstep, the Alpha mates return to the city they grew up in to be married.
Aside from the sheer exhaustion of traveling across the country with three children in tow, both men step foot back in New York filled with apprehension about what kind of reception they will receive from their families after abandoning their respective packs.
At first it seems they are welcomed home with open arms and much excitement about their wedding but it soon becomes clear that not everyone is so happy to see the prodigal sons return.
Indeed, Caleb finds himself wondering if Jacob will go through with the ceremony at all, or whether it would be better to pack up his mate and their children, and head back to Nebraska before the situation does irreparable damage to them both.
Sometimes you have to leave a place to realize it’s exactly where you ought to be.
Well, this one was just ok for me. I didn’t love it like I did book 1. Although, it’s was nice to see Jacob and Caleb more settled in their relationship and fatherhood.
In Returning Home we flash forward a few years from book 1. Jacob and Caleb plus their 3 kids return to Caleb’s home and pack to get married. This was a pretty emotional reunion because Caleb always believed his family wouldn’t accept him. That is definitely not the case because they welcome him and his family with open arms.
The same cannot be said, however, for Jacob and his family. There’s quite a bit of drama surrounding Jacob and his family in this story.
Like I mentioned earlier my favorite part of this book was seeing Jacob and Caleb as fathers. I adored those interactions. And it further shows what great men these two really are.
Even though this one wasn’t my favorite so far the writing was still very well done. I am indeed a fan of this author and I’m quite looking forward to subsequent books.
