Alexa Clausen has never fallen. She’s never soared. She’s lived her entire life floating midway between passion and despondency, never experiencing those extremes. But all it takes is one evening with Adam Westbrook to draw her out of her shell, to leave her feeling bold for the first time ever. He is fiery and magnetic. He is gravitational, that inescapable pull no one can avoid. After a few chance encounters, Alexa finally accepts that she can’t stay away, can’t deny the electricity she feels every time he comes around. But as the intensity between them deepens, she also can’t avoid the subtle hints that Adam is hiding something. His wide smile and radiant eyes obscure some burning secret, some detail of his past that resurfaces to steal his joy. The farther Alexa falls, the more she realizes just how little she really knows about Adam and how far he is willing to go to cover up the truth. Calm Like Home is a story about love and longing, growth and stagnation, discovering one’s counterpart but losing oneself, and ultimately finding that one person truly has the power to change everything.
Five Star Review
This book was amazing. It was written so well and I fell in love with it. I loved Adam. He was silly, secretive, and sweet. Lex, as I came to see her in my mind, reminds me of me. Sometimes you fall and sometimes it hurts. I loved her as a character and if she was real we could be the same person. This book was so descriptive that every bit of pain and love will be felt by the reader. During this book, I had my fingers crossed for these two lovers. They seemed perfect. Like to halves to a whole. The ending was the kicker for me. All the secrets, all the pain, finally made sense and finally made me love this book more than any other book I have read. This is a great story. Greatly written and one that needs to be read by guys and girls alike. This whole book can be summed up by one word. LOVE!
