Tracy reviews ‘Coming Home’ (Firsts and Forever #9) by Alexa Land. Published by the author July 16th 2015, 283 pages.
This book was purchased by me from Amazon UK. 😉
Why I read this book: I chose to read this book as I can’t get enough of this series.
For twenty-six-year-old rent boy Chance Matthews, surviving day-to-day in San Francisco is difficult enough. Then an ill-fated road trip to Wyoming to search for his biological father throws his life into a tailspin. When a string of catastrophes leaves him stranded and desperate, help comes from the last person he’d expect. His knight in shining armor is everything he could want and then some, but Chance is sure a man like that would never want someone like him. That’s the stuff of fairy tales, and he stopped believing in those a long time ago.
Coming Home is the ninth book in Alexa Land’s best-selling Firsts and Forever series, but each book can stand alone, so jump in anywhere. This male-male contemporary love story includes graphic sex and explicit language and is intended for adults only.
10/10 Pots of Gold
When I saw this book had been released early I was so excited, I one clicked straight away. I wanted to read Chance’s Story.
We first met Chance in Christians book when they are both trying not to get arrested. Christian for graffiti and Chance for prostitution. Christian has been selling himself since the age of 14 when he ran away from home hoping to find his land of hopes and dreams. He needed to make money to send home for his little brother and selling himself is the only way he knew how.
Finn is a cop, also Shea’s older brother, he is deep in the closet. His parents are homophobic and will throw him out of the family if he ever tells them he is Gay. He tries to help Chance in any way he can. Its sweet.
Chance goes on a road trip to first him moms and then to try and find his dad. Things don’t go to plan and for the first time ever he has to call for help, Finn comes running. The trip might not have gone to plan but it was fascinating seeing both Chance and Finn finding their way with each other. The love they have shone through the pages so brightly.
Parts of this book is really hard to read because of past abuse, it had me in floods of tears. Yet other parts are fun and had me giggling. This is why I like books by Alexa Land she has the perfect balance within her books from the dark to the light. This book for me was perfect in every way. The more I learned about Chance and Finn the more I could relate to them. The ending finished their story off to perfection.
I say this after reading all the books, we all need a Nanna like this one to brighten our day…. They also show that not all families are the conventional ones. I’m looking forward to reading Nico’s story in the near future.
