A Joyfully Jay review 4 starsI don t want to give away any spoilers I will say that there is some angst within the pages of Home is a Fire Angst really isn t my thing, so I started to become a little uncomfortable Of course, I knew that Derek and Luke would find their way back to each other, but their path was full of obstacles, and I was feeling the same anxiety they were feeling.This book has some of the best background characters I ve ever read Derek s mom is adorable His friends are supporti [...]

I m impressed with the guts it takes to write and self publish a first novel I found his depictions of a small Southern town dead on the story is well paced I liked the emotions surrounding a new love I would have liked Derek to have taken a moment to self reflect why all the running Why the need to jump from one relationship to the next

Predictable events, copious tired stereotypes, poor dialog where supposedly best friends use each others names over and over very difficult to take seriously.

I got this after reading Mark s review at SGR and I m glad for it now Derek is drama It is his job and its how he is and I loved it I found this book to have a fresh, light style which made it easy to read.The theme is going home and Derek goes from NYC back to Parkville, Tennessee and pretty much reverts back to the high school horrors literally in his new job and physically in his actions All the drama remember and all with a wry humour that I loved Yes, he was a bit like an eager puppy or kic [...]
