~BLOG TOUR: REVIEW & GIVEAWAY~ Can't Go Home by Angelisa Stone

Book: Can’t Go Home
Author: Angelisa Stone
Genre: New Adult
Purchase Link: Amazon


Everyone has secrets; secrets meant to be kept—hidden away where nobody can discover the truth. Adrian O’Donnell (aka: Dre Donley) is no exception. Dre spins tales and half-truths like it’s his job, keeping the reality of his past buried deep within each lie he fabricates. On the other hand, Kathryn Howell is the exception to the rule. She’s a straight-shooter, a tell-it-like-it-is, no filter kind of girl.

Kathryn’s honesty and straightforwardness is the ultimate turn on for a guy like Dre. He’s never met someone so sincere, so full of truth and innocence. Their chemistry is unavoidable, their connection, magnetic. When Dre sets out to make Kathryn fall for him, he doesn’t realize the grave mistake he’s making. Kathryn’s strength and convictions do not falter, even for an irresistible man like Dre. When his past resurfaces, and the lies come tumbling forth, Kathryn must decide if his deceit and betrayal can be forgiven or if the damage is irreparable. Will the truth ultimately destroy the relationship that neither one of them could deny or even attempt to resist?

This novel is for mature readers only, due to language and sexual content.

(Thank to you Angelisa for providing an ARC of Can't go home!)

Let me start off by saying that I was a bit hesitant about starting this book. I've been having trouble with many of the contemporary books lately and was on the fence about this one. But I saw the cover and I just had to trust that I wouldn't be let down. Great news! I wasn't! This was a wonderful book to read! And I didn't know this was a debut novel so mad props to Ms. Stone for her wonderful debut! :D 

The story sets off in Dre's POV and throughout switches between he and Kathryn. Dre is quite frankly the Charleston's "Angel". He spends his time helping out the locals with minor jobs and volunteering in the homeless shelters. But he is also known as the man who has no attachments to any women. He lives his life day by day and refuses to get attached to anyone. Dre lives with a big secret and isn't willing to share it with anyone, until he meets Kathryn. When he falls in love with the beautiful firecracker, he struggles with his feelings for her and knows his lies will end something that didn't even begin.

While Kathryn doesn't play games and is a no nonsense women she can't help but feel the growing desire she has for Dre. When she finally gives into it she realizes that it isn't just desire that she has for the town's "angel". Sadly, with her growing feelings Kathryn also realizes that Dre refuses to open up. Against her better judgement, she continues to push back when he retreats because she believes he is worth the wait and patience. But eventually she gets tired of fighting for something that isn't going anywhere. 

After many misunderstandings and insecurities the two finally get everything out in the open. But their HEA doesn't come easily when Dre's past comes barging back. They face a whole new dilemma but as a team they end up making it through the demons on Dre's past. 

Can't Go Home is a thrilling ride you won't want to miss! Dre and Kathryn's story is weaved with so many twist and turns that you will literally feel like you are on a merry-go-round. 

I cannot wait to read more from this author and look forward to possible books for the other wonderful characters in this book. 

Don't miss out on this wonderful debut by Angelisa Stone!!
