Rogan has always felt bad
for the way he treated Lucas in high school. Lucas thought he hated him but the
truth is Rogan was envious of the other man and even admired him. Lucas was
smart and interesting, Rogan found him very intriguing. Unable to deal with his
feelings he treated Lucas badly instead. Twelve years have gone by and Rogan is
determined to make Lucas see that he has changed and he is very different from
the bully he used to be.
HOME by William Neale is a
gentle and charming story about forgiving past mistakes and being brave enough
to take a chance on love, even if you find that love in an unexpected place. Rogan
and Lucas have really good chemistry and their feelings for one another grow
quickly but the author does an excellent job of making it believable. The
heroes are surrounded by some interesting secondary characters. I particularly
liked the Sheriff. His unwavering support for Rogan made moved me and me smile.
The plot is interesting and has some unexpected twists. HOME is a delightful story.
