From the award-winning author of the Bad Boys of Red Hook series, a new novel about finding love where you least expect it…

Jackson Sullivan III has always lived up to his uncle’s expectations, until his career is sidelined, leaving him lost and in need of a retreat to his family’s cabin. But his solitude is interrupted by a beautiful visitor whose combative feelings about the Sullivans lead Jax to a surprising declaration: he pretends to be someone else.

Though she hasn’t seen the privileged scion since she was a child, Kendall Watkins hates everything Jackson Sullivan represents. She should know: her parents have managed the Sullivan estate for years. In need of her own peace and quiet, she heads to the cabin, never expecting to come face to face with the most handsome man she’s ever met. Soon stranded by a violent nor’easter, Jax and Kendall end up sharing more than they dreamed. But Jax knows that when the storm clears, his true identity will be revealed, and Kendall will be left with a betrayal that may be too great to forgive…
My Thoughts.
Home To You is one of those books that draw you in from the very first page, the kind of book that has you losing track of time as you become absorbed in the story of Kendall and Jackson 'Jack'.

I really enjoy stories that feature two people shut away and isolated in a cabin, add in the fact that Jack hasn't exactly been honest about his identity to Kendall letting her think that he's just a roofer not the millionaire businessman he really is and whom Kendall seems to have a problem with referring to him as the Grand Pooh-Ba.

Kendall arrives at the cabin to get away after losing her job and fiancee in the same day, add to that her car is damaged on the drive up to the cabin, she's really not having a good time of it, Jack is hiding away after an accident that has left him with a brain injury that affects his ability with numbers, from telling the time to counting, seeing as his job is in finance he can't let this news get out lest he risk losing a lot of clients and a whole lot of money.

Being alone together the chemistry is intense and in no time at all they find themselves giving in to the attraction, but real life will come knocking when Kendall discovers Jack's true identity can she ever forgive him?

This was such an entertaining and fun read, the characters were really likeable and I'm hoping that the next book will focus on Jamie and Addie, and to discover the secret that Addie's hiding which I have an idea about.

A fantastic start to an all new series, I'm happy to have Robin on my radar.

I give this 4/5 stars.

Robin Kaye was born in Brooklyn, New York and grew up in the shadow of the Brooklyn Bridge next door to her Sicilian grandparents. Living with an extended family that’s a cross between Gilligan’s Island and The Sopranos, minus the desert isle and illegal activities, explains both her comedic timing and the cast of quirky characters in her books.

She’s lived in half a dozen states from Idaho to Florida, but the romance of Brooklyn has never left her heart. She currently resides in Maryland with her husband, three children, two dogs, and a three-legged cat with attitude.
