Her dreams came with a price – and it was something she didn’t expect. Twelve years later, Lily Rae, at the top of her career, decided to leave the business and go home. But trying to become an ordinary citizen was much harder than chasing after her dreams of becoming a singer, not to mention her manipulative ex-agent wouldn’t let her get away that easily.
He waited twelve years for her. Justin DeLuca wanted Lily Rae since they were young, and he allowed her to follow her dreams. When all he wanted was to have a family and managed a farm, Lily wanted to become a star. He let her become one, without even telling her how he felt for her. When she didn’t communicate as much as he wanted her to, it hurt her. So seeing her home, trying to become normal again, his initial reaction was not what she expected. After all, they were best of friends then.
This time, though, he wasn’t going to let her get away. But his alpha-maleness and her aversion with controlling man needs to be addressed first. There was something she needs tell not just Justin, but her family as well as to what really happened with her life, and what went wrong along the way. Why did she quit?
Secrets, betrayals and deception – I thought that was it for HOME until I was in the final chapters that it had kept me on my seat reading one page after the other. Twists that I didn’t see coming, and surprises that broke my heart in the process, some of the characters would surprise you.
Dreams can change, that’s why I loved reading HOME. Not just that the characters came close to my heart or the reality of it hits close to what perhaps happening to some people in the industry – HOME is a story about love that waited patiently, love that sacrificed, and a love that is all consuming it sees beyond the faults. It was a short story that had me up as long as my medicine allowed me to, but it every page was worth it.
