When You Make it Home by Claire Ashby

Published July 2014 by Red Adept Publishing

Meg Michaels, a bookstore owner, has already walked away from two cheating exes. She’s learned her lesson and has her mind set on success—until she gets knocked up. Embarrassed and unwilling to discuss her situation with friends and family, she wears layers to hide the pregnancy.

When Meg gets sick at a party, she’s mortified. Even worse, Theo Taylor, the guest of honor, discovers her secret. Theo, an Army medic wounded in the war, agrees not to reveal her condition, and the two forge a bond of friendship that blossoms into love.

Theo is soon filling all of Meg’s late-night cravings—and not just the pregnancy-induced ones. But can their love overcome all the obstacles that stand between them and creating a happy family?

My Thoughts…

When You Make It Home is an eye opening story that tugs are your heart strings.   I cried, sighed, shook my head, and said prayers for Meg and Theo.   The emotions were unlimited and changed many times throughout the story.  

Theo is my hero.  Not only is he a wounded veteran coming home injured and fighting his own demons, but he steps up to the plate to be friends with a pregnant woman.   He scared me when he kept having to take pills to fight the phantom pain and refused to share his pain with Meg, I was worried for the path that he could be heading down and what it would mean for his relationships.   But when he starts referring to Meg’s baby as his own and taking care of both mother and baby without batting an eye I knew that he would come out on top and be the true man he was meant to be.

Meg was interesting to me.   A single mom, without a real mother figure in her life, who falls for a wounded veteran.   There were times that I wanted to shake her and say wake up, don’t let Theo leave you.   There were other times that I was hoping that she would take a step back and let someone else take care of her.   She was so incredibly independent, due to her circumstances, that she did not know how to let someone else into her life.   I didn’t always like her, but I did always want her to find her happy ever after.  

I enjoyed reading Claire Ashby’s story.   I will definitely recommend this to my fellow romance readers.
