Book Review: Can't Go Home

CAN'T GO HOME by Angelisa Stone: Everyone has secrets; secrets meant to be kept—hidden away where nobody can discover the truth. Adrian O’Donnell (aka: Dre Donley) is no exception. Dre spins tales and half-truths like it’s his job, keeping the reality of his past buried deep within each lie he fabricates. On the other hand, Kathryn Howell is the exception to the rule. She’s a straight-shooter, a tell-it-like-it-is, no filter kind of girl.

Kathryn’s honesty and straightforwardness is the ultimate turn on for a guy like Dre. He’s never met someone so sincere, so full of truth and innocence. Their chemistry is unavoidable, their connection, magnetic. When Dre sets out to make Kathryn fall for him, he doesn’t realize the grave mistake he’s making. Kathryn’s strength and convictions do not falter, even for an irresistible man like Dre. When his past resurfaces, and the lies come tumbling forth, Kathryn must decide if his deceit and betrayal can be forgiven or if the damage is irreparable. Will the truth ultimately destroy the relationship that neither one of them could deny or even attempt to resist?

This novel is for mature readers only, due to language and sexual content.

Kath's thoughts: I loved this book! I know the typical new-adult genre story is either light or a heavy drama. Well, this book is a little bit in the middle that’s why I loved it. It’s a refresher, a page turner, a break from once in a while heavy reads.

It started with a pretty strong tactic that the Author Angelisa Stone showed Kathryn’s personality here is a feisty one. I’m saying she’s not some Princess waiting in the tower for Prince Charming to save her and swoon her over. I’m saying she’s the kind of girl who will slay her own dragon or even tame a dragon for a pet. So when Dre met Kathryn, his power of compulsion to swoon over women easily has no effects on her. She’s hard work for him and he felt challenged. He met his match.

Dre’s a guy who’ll want to introduce himself to a girl, dine her and then… well you know what happens after dinner ;) but then he realizes Kathryn’s someone you don’t do that to, like he could actually learn a thing or two from Kathryn. Okay scratch that Kathryn’s his refresher, a new person from his past life. He needs Kathryn. And Kathryn needs to know the truth.

So what I’m telling you is… this is a light book and I assure you you’ll like it. Angelisa Stone is one Author you sure do need to look-out too. And find out what’s his past (oh don’t worry you’ll be shock but you’ll get over it)
