Review: Close to Home

For this review, I chose Close to Home by Lily Everett.

I requested ARC copy of the ebook through Netgalley in exchanged for a honest review.

Here is a brief description from Goodreads:
The best journeys take us home….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?

Tessa left her marriage to a man, who married her to save her.  She was in a bad situation and at that time she needed to be saved, but now all Tessa wants is to have love.  Real love.  Not the kind she has had for years.

Her husband, Johnny, has been undercover for 2 years.  Leaves his assignment with the news that Tessa left him and wants a divorce.  What does he do? Go find her.  Johnny does not understand why she left.  But, once Johnny finds her, then what?

This book's descriptions starts with "the best journeys takes us home."  Tessa leaves Johnny so she can find herself.  Tessa needed to see if she could take care of herself.  She never had that.  She always had Johnny do that.  Johnny needed to see that Tessa can take care of herself and she does not want that type of marriage they had.  She wants to be loved in every way.  I think each of them had to find their home, but they had to see their home was each other!!

Great story with believable characters!!

I give this book 5 out of 5 stars.
