I have a story to tell, a story I promised never to tell. Hell, it isn't even one I wanted to live through. I just can't keep it inside anymore... now that they're both gone. I have to tell My Story.

It's a tale her sons won't forget, and one that could change them for all time.

The Porter Brothers Series (#1 Coming Home & #1.5 Never Coming Home)

My Rating: 5 of 5 Stars

If there ever was a sexy series that could be best described as "sweet," The Home Series that Paloma Beck conceived would be it. Yes, it's hot, steamy, and extremely erotic, but beneath it all is the simple story of two people who are perfect for each other and the close family who is brought together again by their patriarch's untimely death. There is romance in ordinary life and it's captured within these books.

Coming Home is Ryan and Tyra's whirlwind romance, set incongruously against the backdrop of his father Robert's wake and funeral. But it's the memories of the love his parents had which makes her wish for these feelings to be true! Sounds confusing? It's not, once you start reading. This closes the argument of balancing work and family while finding compromises that makes a relationship tick.

Ryan's job as a real estate agent echoes his father's, except they're working in different states. Although he was groomed to take over the family's business, he opted to strike out on his own and made a success of himself - at a steep price. The news that his father is in a coma comes at a cross point of where he's going with his business and love life, and he feels he may just get all his answers at home.

Tyra's known Ryan for a very long time, even if he was never aware of it! He is interested in her, yes, but will he still be after he learns all her secrets? It might help that Henry, Ryan's younger brother, is very close to her, but Ryan could come to a very different conclusion. Can this disparate two make themselves a couple? Of course the answer is yes, but how they get there is what this is all about.

Never Coming Home is more poignant. There was a big question left unanswered about Robert and Rachel's relationship that their sons Ryan and Davis couldn't understand. Even Henry, the youngest brother that opted to stay at home, didn't know the whole story of how special their father truly was.  Rachel decides erase the confusion and tell them the story of her two best friends - and her one true love. A short story it may be, but there is more emotion packed into it than the previous book in this series!

Now that I've read the first two of The Home Series, I have some questions of my own for Paloma Beck. Where is Davis disappearing to? Who's finally going to capture Henry's heart? I hope I can get the answers soon!
