The Hometown Hero Returns Home to Harbor Town #1

At eighteen Marianna Itani thought she'd found the man of her dreams in Marc Kavanaugh the uintessential boy next door That perfect romance flew to pieces when an unspeakable tragedy tore them a. This feels a bit strange reviewing a non erotic romance by Beth Kery I think The Hometown Hero Returns is BK s first venture into category romance and it s a little on the mild side compared to Wicked Burn Release Daring Time and Sweet Restraint all true scorchers So it took me a little while to get over the lack of explicit detail in the love scenes but once I adjusted I realized Beth Kery can still write a good story without relying on the heatThis is a second chance at love story In Harbor Town Michigan fifteen years ago eighteen year old Marianna Mari Itani and twenty one year old Marc Kavanaugh were on the verge of consumating their love when a terrible tragedy interrupted them changing the course of their lives as well as others Mari moved from Michigan never to see her first love Marc again Now 33 year old Mari is a San Francisco Symphony cellist in Chicago where Marc works as a state s attorney for a performance Marc attends the concert follows her back to her hotel and to make a long story short they end up doing what they d planned to do 15 years ago But was it a mistake Maybe you can t go home againor can you The Hometown Hero Returns relies most on character development over plot The plot is pretty simple will Mari and Marc be able to find what they once had 15 years ago or will the past and their families get in their way Will they be able to overcome the obstacles the main one being Marc s mother that threaten their future I won t be giving up a spoiler since it s on the back book blurb by telling you that Mari gets pregnant from her brief encounter in Chicago but is that enough for Mari and Marc to try againBeth Kery does a good job making Mari and Marc and their difficulties and passion for each other seem real I got a good sense of the types of people they were and felt like I knew where they were coming from They were likable characters their passion was hot but not explicit you must use your imagination a bit and I was rooting for them Yes sometimes Mari tried my patience especially when she was willing to let Marc s disapproving Mom decide her futute I wanted her to fight harder for the man she supposedly lovedThroughout the book we meet interesting characters Marc s brother and sisters Mari s brother who I think will one day get their own stories in fact Marc s police detective brother Liam will get his story next So even though this isn t the Beth Kery I m used to reading I am looking forward to reading in this series For the first book in a series BK does a good job 4 stars

    I’ve long been a fan of Ms Kery’s erotic work and was excited to see a new branch in her already successful career Writing for Harleuin is very different from writing for nearly any other publisher on the planet because when you pick up any Harleuin novel you know exactly what you’re getting Or you would if you ever actually read them unlike me for the most part but you won’t hold that against me right?
