Spoiled and beautiful, Kelsi is the daughter of the former pack leader. Now that he's stepped down, it's time for her to choose a mate. She has two different males in her sights and she cares for both of them. Keifer is the smaller of the two, slender and lovely, sweet and kind, and he looks at her with adoration in his eyes. Gage, on the other hand, is big and buff, hot and possessive, and his gaze fills her with heat. How's a girl to choose?
Wolves mate for life, so where does that leave werewolf Kelsi when she stumbles on the two of them in bed together? It looks like she's had the choice made for her. Shocked and hurt, she runs from the pack lands. Gage and Keifer are determined to find Kelsi. When they do, they'll do whatever it takes to convince her they're not complete on their own...
Talk about a long goodbye... or is it a long welcome home?
When I see an S. Michael title up for review, I have to stop and browse. I've never been let down by one of the author's books and this one is no exception. Bringing Her Home combines the best of contemporary and paranormal menage romance and spins it into a great story I couldn't put down. The characters stayed with me long after the end of the book and I reread the book more than once simply to relive the emotions and turmoil in the pages. The writing flowed well and kept me right in my seat needing to know what would happen next.
I loved the combination of Kief and Gage. These two men just love each other. Sure, they aren't perfect and a little thick in the head at times, but they are so lovable. Seeing them express their feelings for each other, even in the little ways was sexy. Then there's Kelsi. I could completely understand her feelings in the beginning and I liked how the author played it out. My heart ached when she had to deal with the pain early on. Sure, there were times when I thought she was a little whiny and I'd have liked her to figure things out a little faster, but that's why I didn't write the story. I couldn't get the build up and the palpable feeling of Kelsi's twin sensations of desire and confusion S. Michael weaves into the story.
This book stayed with me because I had to rehash and replay what happened in my head. I didn't want to let Gage, Kelsi, and Kief go. Want to immerse yourself in their story? Then grab a copy of Bringing Her Home. It's a great read.
