Willow Parsons’s two new best friends are getting married, putting her squarely on the sidelines of romance - which suits her just fine. After the nightmarish situation she escaped from, featuring the ultimate Mr. Wrong, she is more than happy to spend her days slinging drinks in Dempsey’s Bar & Grill, and her nights alone. But her Anchor Island refuge has just one catch: muscle-bound charmer Randy Navarro.
Everyone in town knows that Randy, owner of the local fitness club, is a giant teddy bear. Everyone, it seems, except for Willow. He’s convinced that her avoidance is more than just playing hard to get, and is determined to uncover the secrets that shadow her lovely eyes. But when old fears are dragged into the light, can Randy get Willow to stay and fight for their love...or will she take flight, leaving him and Anchor Island behind?
Home to Stay is a charming, romantic tale about following your heart to find where you belong.

The author is a brilliant story teller. She is up there with the best authors.Fantastic characters and setting. Nail biting conflict and strong emotions.One sympathises deeply with the hero and heroine and they are such a good match. If you've read the first two books in the series it feels as if you're part of the island community yourself.
Something about Terri's writing reminds me of Susan Mallery... perhaps her sense of humour.
Oh Randy the Hero is wonderful. Although I adored Willow, the heroine too.
When her past catches up with her at the worst possible moment.
I look forward to Terri Osburn's next book. I've read the first wonderful three.
This is the perfect example of finding an author I would never have "found" except that I sat across from her at a recent Author/Reader Conference. Her covers were attractive and intrigued me, but struck me as sweet romance--of which I'm not a huge fan. But when I looked her up on Amazon, I discovered she writes contemporary romance in much the same vein as I do. The kind of book I love to read.
This is a typical "starting over" trope, one of my favorite themes. Heroine Willow Parsons is trying to find a new life after running away from an abusive relationship. Hero Randy Navarro unfortunately is the same kind of big, muscular man who hurt Willow--but only in appearance. The way the man whose size "commands its own zip code" wins over her heart is a wonderful reading adventure.
Highly recommend this book to anyone who loves contemporary romance with just enough spice to keep your blood pumping. I listened to this book on Audible, and Amy Rubinate did an outstanding job.
As usual her way with words entertains, and if you follow the series it's nice to visit with the other characters that you've come to know and love. But I didn't find this one to be a favorite, it seemed quick I don't know I was listening to the audio and I didn't manage to fall in love with the lead characters as I usually do but I'm moving on to next book right now
A little action, a lot of love, and past character follow up...by far my fav in the Anchor series. The books all tie in well together which is important to keeping me happy. Just wish Randy had the opportunity to get his hands on Jeremy :-/...oh well...maybe in another book.
