Falling for his brother's boyfriend broke his heart. Now he's back home and falls in love all over again.

One birthday kiss and Kieran realizes he is in danger of falling for his brother’s boyfriend, Jordan. Leaving for college, then moving to another country is the only way to ease the ache in his heart.

But, when his father becomes ill and his sister begs him to come home, Kieran returns for good. He finds the family business nearly bankrupt and Jordan, the man he ran from, beaten down by despair and guilt.

Friendship is what they promise each other as they work to repair the business, but it could never be enough for Kieran. When secrets spill, and there are vital decisions to be made, Kieran realizes two things; he’s back home, and he wants to stay with Jordan for good.

Now he just needs to convince Jordan.


 Back Home by RJ Scott is a re-release. I actually never read any of the other editions so I can't compare this to the others.

Going into this story I was nervous. The subject matter was one that sort of irked me a bit. Keiran has loved his older brother's partner pretty much his whole life. To escape the strong feelings he moves away. He returns again after the death of his brother only to run away again. But returns one last time when his father falls ill and his brother's partner injures himself. That in a nutshell is what brings us to the meat of the story. I won't tell you what happens or what the author does to make it okay that Keiran  and Jordan (his brother's partner) actully succumb to their feeling but I will say she made it work for the most part. 

Whenever I deal with books that has a a death shrouding over it, I feel haunted throughout. I desperately try to grasp at any light or happiness the words bring. In this book, I did the same thing. I had the uncertainty that I'd be okay with these two getting together and the "How would this make me feel?" moments. I felt that when the author showed us memories of the past with Brad (the older brother) and his spiralling down, and the sweet moments Keiran had with Jordan years ago, helped. It made things sort of fall into place. I still felt weird at times and the uncertainty never really and truly went away but I was able to move past it.

RJ's writing is as beautiful as always. She manages to squeeze out every emotion and explain perfectly how each character feels. Because of the subject matter it felt like she really wanted the reader to understand these guy's reasoning in everything they did. 

I enjoyed this moving story and was glad to be smiling at the end of it. I do recommend this book!
