It's a kind of magic...

Any additional comments?

There's some kind of magic to Cardeno C.'s stories. With every re-read I find a new angle, or a new understanding of the story, which makes it all fresh and new.

The story spans from 1996 to January, 2011 and grabbed me from the first page. This romance takes the reader on a journey along with the characters from the first moment Noah and Clark meet, what they go through to be with one another, to the moment it all went wrong, and how they make their way back to one another. There's a lot of sex, a lot of growly "MINE!", and a lot of love.

There's a moment in the story, I'm not going to give it away, when I felt like killing Noah. I couldn't believe his reasoning for such stupidity. Then Clark not only forgives him, but he APOLOGIZES. I. Lose. My. Mind. Seriously - lose it every time...screaming, wanting to grab up Clark and shake him and then punt Noah right in the 'nads and make him grovel and crawl.

THIS. This is what Cardeno's writing does to me. It drags me in and makes me think these characters are real. It sucks me down every time, and every time I find something new to appreciate about it.

I love Alexander Collins' narration of this series. Collins purring out "Angel" to Clark is endearing, and hearing him growl out Noah's possessiveness of Clark is just hot. The audio is a great way to experience this story. If you are looking for a romance with great narration, charismatic characters, lots of mind-meltingly hot sex, and a lot of emotion - make sure to grab this up.

Home Again-Emotional and Angsty

The Home series is a favorite of mine, primarily due to the strong underlying theme of destined couples. Home Again is a perfect example of this, with a large dash of angst and uncertainty thrown in due to Noah's accident and resulting loss of memory.

I'm not normally a fan of stories that flip back and forth from present to past, but in the context of this story this works well as each flip to the past helps build memories of Noah and Clark as the meet and fall for each other. Those memories are doled out slowly while we see the two men interacting present-day as Noah and Clark are together again...and it's that "again" aspect that provides the uncertainty as readers know there is more to the story, though we're not sure what happened until near the end.

Clark has always had a protective, caring streak for Noah right from the moment the two meet when Clark is 17 and Noah is 13. This continues to build over time, and is still evident when Clark comes to Noah in the hospital-even though it is quite clear to the reader that their relationship is not at the place Noah thinks it is when he finally awakens after the accident. The unsure feelings this provoked in me had me totally drawn in to the story as I was desperate to know what the REAL story between the two of them is present day.

While I wasn't too thrilled with what Noah had done 3 years prior (the part he doesn't remember until near the end), the final resolution made up for it...mostly. It still made me want to slap him silly for the reasoning behind what he did (sorry, can't tell you more as it would spoil it for you). Suffice it to say that this did cause me to remove a full star from my rating-which says a lot since this was a 4-star read for me.

For the narration, Alexander Collins does a terrific job at voicing the characters, and the warm tone of his voice made the story soothing to listen to for the majority of the story.

I'd recommend this story to M/M romance fans 18+ for adult language and M/M sexual content.
