Sometimes you have to go home again.

When Bryce Edwards left Minnesota for the bright lights of Hollywood ten years ago, he was determined not to look back. He’s built a solid acting career through his own hard work and talent. But when he finds himself unemployed right before Christmas, the memories he’s been ignoring start to rise up and annoy him.

Maybe it’s time to take a different approach; maybe it’s time to confront his past and not just use it as motivation for his next emotional scene. If he can make peace with what happened back then— the small-town bigots who drove him away, and his first boyfriend who refused to leave with him— maybe he’ll be free to move on to something better. He’s not sure what “something better” will look like, but he’s finally ready to get on a plane, go home, and find out.


Kaje Harper gives us another emotional tale of heartache and personal growth interspersed with love, lust and friendship. Now, don’t be afraid – this is not an angst fest, but my heartstrings were tugged more than once and a few tears were spilled.

I fell in love with Bryce and Dion. Although I thought this was going to be a second chance type story, and was surprised with the direction it took, everything made sense and worked out the best way possible.

It was interesting to see the snippets of Bryce acting, the thoughts that went through his head as he did so. Usually those details are skipped, but it gave us more information on who Bryce was as a person.

The thing I love about Ms Harper’s books is that they feel down to earth with real people, even when dealing with up and coming movies stars and the wealthy (or even a shifter or two – but that’s a different book!).

I definitely recommend this book to fans of Kaje Harper as well as people new to the author!
