By the winter of 1870, Caleb Fletcher has carved out a sheltered existence for himself in a simple cabin, outside a small town in the backwaters of Nebraska, resigned to living out his days as a solitary wolf. But his quiet life is interrupted when another werewolf lands on his doorstep on the eve of a snowstorm, brutalized almost beyond repair, with nowhere else to turn.

When Caleb reluctantly welcomes Jacob into his cabin, and eventually his bed, it forces him to face up to the traumas he’s been running from; the shame that made him leave his pack behind, and the horrors of war he endured.

As the weeks pass, it seems that Jacob’s arrival might not be the coincidence it first appeared. Jacob has an agenda. One that involves Caleb. And if Caleb agrees to it – if he can let go of his past and his prejudices – it will change Caleb’s whole world. Maybe even for the better.

Without a mate – a family, a pack – a wolf has no home.
But what if home finds you

Review
Home is where you are is one of the shifter books that I will come back to over again. It’s different. It’s the kind of story that has a realism about it, if Shifters existed that is. First it’s set in 1870’s not long after the Civil War. I love this world Alex Jane has built. The werewolves are mistrusted by humans but they are willing to use the werewolves abilities when it suits them. The werewolves have their own communities and businesses, so there is an element of segregation. We meet Caleb after he has returned from war serving in a specific werewolf battalion. He feels the need to isolate himself from his pack, not just because of what we now recognise as PTSD but also shame he feels over being attracted to other male werewolves. The narrative evokes a picture of a lonely soul cutting himself off from the world. That is until Jacob comes into his life in quite a dramatic way. I love the way the story is about the culture in the old west, finding family, his home and giving himself absolution for his mistaken beliefs. If you think you’ll enjoy this book I encourage you to look at the rest of the series, following this family through many major events in their life.

Opposites who go together like country and rock ’n’ roll.

Long before he was a superstar, Remy Sean had a secret crush on Jed Riley. But Jed sees Remy as a spoiled pop rocker and an extension of his father’s control. Still, Jed is willing to let Remy hide from the press on his ranch—but only as a way to get his father out of his life and business for good.

Used to being admired and fawned over, Remy keenly feels the sting of Jed’s dismissal. Can he make Jed see him as more than a pain in the ass? Or is Jed too tangled up in his ranch to see past his old hurt?

Jed doesn’t believe someone desired by so many fans could want him, a simple cowboy. But Remy is determined to change Jed’s mind and steal his heart….

Review

This book title really got my attention. A good opposites attract story can be great to read. Jed is the hardened cowboy and farmer and Remy is the rock star spoiled playboy. Remy is used to people falling at his feet in awe and Jed is used to being by himself and not getting his hopes up. Jed was extremely rude in the beginning since to him, Remy was just a means to an end and an inconvenience. Remy had an incident that has left him with panic struggles. I feel for him on a very personal level. The struggles were very well portrayed. Jed and Remy started out rough around the edges despite an attraction. There’s cute banter, self-esteem moments, snark, shameless flirting, hot cowboy, and some steamy bedroom fun. I greatly enjoyed reading this wonderful book.
