Close to Home by Lily Everett
My rating: 5 of 5 stars
When Tessa Alexander came to Sanctuary Island, she left behind a marriage to a man who didn’t love her the way she loved him. When she finally found the strength to set them both free, she discovered friendship and self-acceptance in her adopted hometown. Now she’s settled into a quiet life on her own—never expecting to see her husband again.
Johnny spent almost two years deep undercover, unable to let his wife into his cold, dangerous world. He’s shaken to the core when he comes home to find her gone. It’s painfully clear that Tessa is no longer the timid young woman he married—she’s become a force of nature, a brave and determined beauty. Johnny can’t let her go without a fight so he sets out to seduce his own wife. But will passion alone be enough to convince Tessa that her new life should include a second chance at happiness with a man who must learn to believe in love?
I loved this book! I loved Tessa. I thought she was the best heroine I had read since...in a while. This had some really great moments that left me sighing. I love Lily Everett and there hasn't really been a book she's written that I've been like "I don't like this book!" I've liked them all because they're all different in some way, shape or form. Johnny, oh we all want a guy like him. In my mind I kept picturing him as Chris Pine in This Means War...well because he was HOT in that movie!!
My recommendation is get this book and just dive in...kick your kids to the grandmothers house and kick your husband out to somewhere because it's way worth it!!
