NEW REVIEW: Coming Home by Priscilla Glenn

Coming Home by Priscilla Glenn
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Barnes & Noble

Leah Marino hasn’t been on a date in two years. After discovering the man she loved had manipulated and deceived her, she refuses to even entertain the idea of a relationship. Instead, she focuses her attention on taking care of her family, a role she’s assumed since the death of her mother and the one place she knows her kindness won't be taken advantage of again.

When a nostalgic trip back to her childhood home results in a chance encounter with Danny DeLuca, a smart-mouthed mechanic who’s as attractive as he is mysterious, Leah's carefully cultivated walls begin to crumble. She finds herself unexpectedly drawn to Danny, despite his unreliable behavior and mixed signals. 

But Danny has a secret...

One that could shake Leah's already precarious foundation and bring her world crashing down around her. Suddenly, she's faced with an incredibly difficult decision--is she willing to risk everything for the chance at finding the love she's always wanted? Or are some obstacles just too big for the heart to overcome?

My Review

MAGNETIC LADY BITS!! I'm pretty sure I'm weird…..

Priscilla Glenn writes words that flow together so intricately it almost hurts. Intricate, but with ease, an ease that reads delicate and natural. She…is a writer. You get the very same quality of writing we have come to expect from Priscilla Glenn in Coming Home.

"I just want to make you feel good." She glanced up just in time to see his dimples appear.
"Leah," he said through a laugh. He circled his fingers around her wrist and guided her and between them until she was touching him.
Oh God. "You feel that?" he asked softly. "That's how you make me feel."

This is NOT another love at first sight story. It seems like every book lately has a girl with metal lady bits, and guy with a magnetic dick. They meet and BAM. They love. They screw. Now what?

The progression in Coming Home was natural, gentle. It was real. I adored the pace of Danny and Leah's relationship. The build was a beautiful journey. My only minor reservation was with a slower building plot, I expected more of a climax to explode my emotions, but looking back it might have changed the entire dynamic of the story. Altering the very things that I loved. I admire Priscilla Glenn for staying true to her story, her characters. My only concern is of readers losing interest, expecting that instant explosion; that instant gratification. What a damn shame if they do. She navigated me in the direction that she wanted me to go. She allows us to enjoy the story by not flooding our emotions with overwhelming heartache and drama.

It is a beautiful romance with a hint of angst, and a lot of heart. It will touch you with its sincerity and leave you wanting more Priscilla Glenn!
