Publisher's Summary

Rachel Porter, a romance writer, has told her three sons tales of finding their true soul mate since they were just boys. She believes that there is but one match for every person. Now as men, they have yet to discover their soul mates. That is, until they come home....

Ryan Porter needs a change from his busy city lifestyle. After five years of living in New York and establishing his own real estate firm, something is still missing. When a tragedy brings Ryan back to his family's rural home in Maine, he finds that missing piece.

Tyra has heard stories of Ryan since she first met his family years earlier. Now Ryan has come home, and he is more than she dreamed he would be. Neither can fight their attraction for the other. And while Tyra just might be the catalyst for the change Ryan needs, first he must embrace Tyra's secrets.

With family secrets creeping out, a profitable relationship ending, trouble with his company, and the unexpected loss of his father, Ryan's life has been thrown off course. The one thing he's got going for him is the new woman stirring up emotions he's never experienced before. Tyra might be the one who convinces Ryan there's truth to his mother's tales of a soul mate.

    "Good Contemporary Romance"

    I enjoyed this story. It was my first book from this author. There were some really sad moments and some sweet moments. There were secrets being kept that made things more complicated.

    Narrator did a fairly good job bringing the story to life. I'll be reading her next book in this series.

    Story
    "Part 2"

    I got this book via audiobook boom. This is a continuation of the Porter family story. Specifically the oldest son Ryan's story. There are three brothers so expect at least two more books. Hopefully with a different narrator. She made the story drag for me. Perhaps she was just learning this author's style. I did not like Ryan's anger at Tyra when she revealed her job. After all, he was still in a relationship with his New York girlfriend. But as the story progressed he became a better character. This can be read as a stand alone but is better when you read the first book and perhaps the end of the full story will be revealed in the next two. This is the type of story that needs to come as a box set so you can get the full impact.

    I love fiction, with an occasional autobiograpy. I try to read 3 books a week but sometimes I only get around to 2.

    Would you consider the audio edition of Coming Home to be better than the print version?

    The audio edition is always better than the print version because the narrator actually acts out each character.


    What did you like best about this story?

    I liked that "Mother knows best".


    What about Kim Park’s performance did you like?

    Kim Park's performance was just the right beat for this story. Good narrator.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    It moved me to see how the brothers reacted to each other.


    Any additional comments?

    "Promising Series"

    *

    The series revolves around three brothers and their parents (including a mother set on 'soulmates'.) Coming Home is a very sweet, contemporary romance.

    Ryan Porter is a big deal real estate tycoon in New York City. Ryan has an obnoxious girlfriend, she is with him for the status. He has achieved almost all of his goals but feels that something is missing. When called home for a family emergency, things fall in line for him. When he arrives at the family's lake house in Maine he has opportunity to meet his mother's assistant, Tyra. Ryan is really intrigued by her.

    Read along as Ryan begins to learn who and what is important in his life. His mother and brothers are full of advice for him and there are a couple of twists that keep this romance book fresh and outside the cookie-cutter trap!

    I enjoyed Kim Park's performance. She told the story without distraction, easily making it believable.

    I really hope that the rest of the series, by Paloma Beck, becomes available on Audible. I am a fan!

    FYI As with most contemporary romances, Coming Home has some intimate scenes.

    Would you listen to Coming Home again? Why?

    Yes, I'm sure there are parts I missed and it would be just as good the second time.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Coming Home?

    There was a scene where Ryan take Tyra out on a boat and they have an intimate experience. Ryan begins to realize that Tyra is very special and that he has begun to have feelings for her.


    Did Kim Park do a good job differentiating all the characters? How?

    Kim Park did a great job differentiating all of the characters. I loved Ryan's throaty sexy voice in particular.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    When Ryan meets Layne, Tyra's daughter, he has an immediate connection to her and it's just so sweet and believable.


    Any additional comments?

    I received this audiobook for free in exchange of an honest review.

    Story was decent, but not the narration. Too slow and drawn out.

    Story
    "One confusing family"
    Any additional comments?

    I have mixed feeling on this one at times it was heartbreaking and at other times I didn’t care for a few characters very much. Is it realistic oh yes I can see this playing out in real life it doesn’t mean I really like how things happen. I like her oldest son still have the question of why they lived in separate homes. As I look at other audios from this author I see the next one answers that. This is a standalone and beside their parents relationship it is a full story which you do not need to read the next book to get the full impact. If you are like me you will want to understand the life they lead and why they live in separate homes. The author does throw in a few twist that does make the read interesting and you won’t see coming.

    Ryan left home years ago for college marrying a hometown girl when they didn’t work out she went home getting all the attention why Ryan stayed away leaving the family to think what they want. In return it put miles between his relationships with his family never really finding that easy going relationship again. He didn’t want to stay in a small town he wanted and needed the big city lights. With one phone call his life is about to change. After having words with his live in girlfriend that he didn’t care if she was there or not when he got back he leave to go home only to find his father isn’t doing well. He and his brothers go to a bar where he meets a woman who really turns him on. One thing leads to another and they end up in bed. Tyra is hiding a few things but you won’t find out the full impact until a little later on in the book. I didn’t understand why Ryan was so upset to find out what her job was, I didn’t feel like she had lied to him as he felt. I really didn’t like him to much at first since he was still in a relationship with the girl in the city. I am not even sure how he came to they went together when he had not told her to leave or it was over. I really felt he was with her, using her to get the business from her father. She really isn’t very likable and I can’t believe any man would stay with her so long even for money. Hey it is my thoughts and I know it is done every day.

    Ms. Parks does a good job on narration I did really care for some of her voices a few have a little more gravel than I like. You have no trouble knowing who is talking but sometimes she just didn’t pull off the emotion of the character enough for me. I thought her female voices were good but still at times lacking emotion that I thought would have really added to the story. Her natural voice is very appealing and she does a wonderful job telling the parts that are not character. I did not hear any background noise or any places where the volume was higher or lower than any other place in the audio. I believe there was one place where she repeated a word but it didn’t take away from the story. There were places I thought she spoke a little too slow but all in all it wasn’t a bad listen. With a little more emotion given to the characters at times this would have been a great audio. Would I listen to this narrator again yes I thought she did a good job.

    I really liked Tyra as she plays out her part you know why she feels the way she does about Ryan. I really do not think she knows him but I understand her emotions. As she comes clean on her last surprise I could understand why she left that out until she saw whether or not things worked out. But she could have told him but not it get to the place where they came face to face. I thought Ryan was a little over the top on how mad he gets at her. I really didn’t understand why he cut his family off and I really hated he lost his father. I did feel for him and his pain at not being able to make a wrong a right. I really liked Ryan’s brothers they are really cute and fun at times. His mother I was a little confused about but that has to do with the different houses but she was sweet and kind.

    I did feel this story could have happen just as the author wrote it people will be people and at times they really confuse me. I do plan on reading the next book in this series which tells about the mother and their issues. That should be interesting. I also think I would most likely have enjoyed this more if I had read the story and not listen to it. Not saying I didn’t enjoy it I just think reading it you can put more emotion in it. Just my thoughts. In no way am I saying don’t listen to this audio there were things I really liked about it. I do look forward to listening to more of this narrator.

    I guess I just wasn’t expecting their father to pass on that really hit me hard. I agree Ryan and his girlfriend should split but didn’t like how that was done or her father throwing a power play in there. But again this is human nature which makes this believable. All in all it was an enjoyable listen with some great parts and some not so great parts.

    Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?

    Not based on the performance of the work. All of the characters sound as if they are high and/or slow. The way the characters are given voice was such a turn off that I couldn't continue to listen to the story. It was too much. I am going to grab the ebook version of the book because I want to know what happens with the brothers.
