Come Home to Me (Whiskey Creek #6) by Brenda Novak

The Book
Release Date: 25 March 2014

Home is where her heart is...

When Presley Christensen returns to Whiskey Creek with her little boy after two years away, she has completely changed her life. She's made peace with her past and overcome the negative behavior that resulted from her difficult childhood. Now she's back in the small town that was the closest thing to home she ever knew;the town where she can be with the sister who's her only family.

There's just one catch. Aaron Amos still lives in Whiskey Creek, at least until he moves to Placerville to open a branch of the Amos brothers' auto body shop. And no matter how hard she's tried, Presley hasn't been able to get over him. Seeing him again makes the longing so much worse. But she hopes she can get through the next few months, because she can't fall back into his arms;or his bed. She's come too far to backslide now. And there's a secret she's been guarding; a secret she'll do anything to protect.

My Opinion  3.5 STARS
My thanks to the author for providing me with a free copy for an honest review.

Ok I have to say that this is not may favourite book of the series.  The writing is still as gripping and as brilliant as ever.  Presley is too caught up in the past, Aaron can't see whats in front of him and don't even get me started on Cheyenne's goings on.

Presley has come back as she needs her sisters support with her baby who's parentage she hopes to keep a secret.  There is however so much sexual tension that neither Presley or Aaron can keep away from each other.  Presley shows Aaron exactly how much she has changed, and not just on the outside.

Aaron has also grown up yet know one seems to have yet realised this, even Aaron.  It is only with a shock revelation that things change dramatically in his world to where he has to actually fight for what he wants.

I hated however that underhanded dealings with Cheyenne.  I have loved her in her story but in this book, she really loses my favour.  Dylan has already shown how forgiving he is and that he would do anything for her.  So why she went to such dastardly lengths (and thereby betraying her husband) I will never understand.  I lost my respect for her in this book, never mind her reasons why.  The act did not justify the means.

I felt sorry for Riley too.  He was encouraged by his friends, but Presley did always warn him of her feelings. 

So far we have Joe, Baxter, Kyle and Riley who all need to have a decent love come into their lives.  All of them have been treated badly and I want them to be able to have a happily ever after.
