Alexa Clausen has never fallen. She’s never soared. She’s lived her entire life floating midway between passion and despondency, never experiencing those extremes. But all it takes is one evening with Adam Westbrook to draw her out of her shell, to leave her feeling bold for the first time ever. He is fiery and magnetic. He is gravitational, that inescapable pull no one can avoid. After a few chance encounters, Alexa finally accepts that she can’t stay away, can’t deny the electricity she feels every time he comes around.
But as the intensity between them deepens, she also can’t avoid the subtle hints that Adam is hiding something. His wide smile and radiant eyes obscure some burning secret, some detail of his past that resurfaces to steal his joy. The farther Alexa falls, the more she realizes just how little she really knows about Adam and how far he is willing to go to cover up the truth.
Calm Like Home is a story about love and longing, growth and stagnation, discovering one’s counterpart but losing oneself, and ultimately finding that one person truly has the power to change everything.
My Review: Alexa stays to what she knows and doesn't really leave her comfort zone. Until Adam comes into play. And Alexa starts breaking out her shell and you can just tell how happy and free she feels. Its so nice to see her like that. And it all was because of Adam. Once she realizes that, staying away from Adam isn't going to happen. She is attracted to him and there is this crazy energey between them that you will just love.
They are perfect together. You will notice it quickly and just enjoy reading about them. Things are going well, but then Alexa starts to wonder about Adam. Could he be hiding something? Can she look past it and just stay happily in love. But she wants to know all about Adam, she wants to know everything and have this life with him. But when she tries, Adam will just avoid it and try to hide anything he can.
Adam got on my nerves a few times but it took Alexa to help break him. It ended up be the story everyone would love to read. Fast pace and full of heart wrenching moments. Its the book you need to pick up and read.
