Publisher's Summary

Meg Michaels, a bookstore owner, has already walked away from two cheating exes. She's learned her lesson and has her mind set on success - until she gets knocked up. Embarrassed and unwilling to discuss her situation with friends and family, she wears layers to hide the pregnancy.
When Meg gets sick at a party, she's mortified. Even worse, Theo Taylor, the guest of honor, discovers her secret. Theo, an Army medic wounded in the war, agrees not to reveal her condition, and the two forge a bond of friendship that blossoms into love.
Theo is soon filling all of Meg's late-night cravings - and not just the pregnancy-induced ones. But can their love overcome all the obstacles that stand between them and creating a happy family?

Friends With Benefits - Love This Book 5 Stars*


Meg Michaels is the owner of a bookstore, pregnant and has two exes that are not worth considering – but for the fact that she is pregnant by one of them. She hides her pregnancy for as long as she can.

At a welcome home party, put on by her best friend, she meets a former Army medic who discovers her secret. Theo (the medic) takes her on as a project. They become friends and before either of them know what they have become intimate – intimate friends.

They push each other away because of their perceived end real fears.

How will they contribute to one another in their journey? Or will they push themselves away from one another?

To me this was a very gentle plot and exploration of returning, injured veterans. Their pride versus the actual physical and mental needs they must let others to help them heal. The compassion without pity that those of us who know nothing about what they have been through. We must include them in order to hear their needs and do our best to help when asked, give time alone when asked, and understand and recognize the differences

Claire Ashby has written a wonderful book and while *I was given this book to listen to in exchange for my review in an unbiased manner. I can say with certainty that I will look for more written by this author and immediately add them to my Wish List.

Piper Brown is an excellent performer. I believe that I have listen to another one of her performances and she is better with each performance. Brown has a way of pulling the emotion out of your heart, feeling and identifying with this spectacularly written book.

Claire Ashby and Piper Brown are a match made in heaven – audio heaven, anyway!

A sweet love story ...

Which character – as performed by Piper Brown – was your favorite?

While I enjoyed Meg very much, Ms. Brown's performance of Theo was very good also. She gave him the right amount of toughness but at the same time made him very caring and loving too


Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

There were parts of the story that made me mad at Meg. She did a few things that seemed to me to be sabotaging her relationship with Theo. It was like she could't 'make a clear decision.


Any additional comments?

When You Make It Home is a well written story about two people who meet at a time when each of them are trying to find their way. Meg has just cancelled her engagement and wedding. Then during a lapse in judgement she finds herself pregnant. Meanwhile, Theo has come home from the war both physically and emotionally scarred. Can the two of them find what they need in each other.

I truly liked this book. I would love to see what happens next for both Meg and Theo. I'd also like an update on her best fried Ellie and Ellie's husband Jake, who happens to be Theo's brother.
