Pretending to date the guy he has a crush on? Kevin’s sure he’s heading for a disaster. A broken heart, at least.
Kevin has been a lone wolf almost his entire life and he’s comfortable with that. Now that he no longer works for the guy he hated, Kevin has only one problem—his crush on his neighbor and best friend.
Taylor is the Alpha’s Son, the heir to the Harrington Pack. He left his hometown and moved to San Francisco as a rite of passage, but it was always temporary, since his place is in Harrington Hills with his pack. Now Taylor is heading back home for a wedding and since his mother is threatening to set him up if he comes alone, he needs a date. Asking Kevin to be his pretend boyfriend sounds like a perfect solution.
What happens when they arrive in Harrington Hills and learn to see each other in a different light? With their relationship changing, can they drop the act and realize that what they have is real?
Freya’s Book Brief
I love these friends to lovers stories. So, when I received this, I snuggled into my chair with a cup of tea and looked forward to a good read.
Kevin (the lone wolf), has had feelings for his best friend, Taylor (Alpha in waiting), for a long time. So, when Taylor asks him to thwart his mother’s plans to throw a bunch of prospective mates at him at a pack wedding, Kevin reluctantly agrees. He agrees knowing the venture could break him.
And there starts the slow sizzle that varies in degree depending on the where and when in the story. The werewolf, supernatural element fit right in, too, adding a nice alternative angle to a well-travelled storytelling path.
If you are looking for a story that is full of angst and leaves you reaching for the tissues to dry your eyes – this ain’t it. It has its heart in the mouth moments, but mostly, Leading Me Home, is a charming best friends story with the addition of werewolves, that, by the end of it, had me snuggling my teddy bear (in a good homey, not purvey way). The sexual tension between Kevin and Taylor is palpable, well written, and easy flowing with just enough, will they won’t they hooks to keep me reading. Whether Kevin and Taylor, did, you’ll have to read the book to find out.
