Author Kyle Bennett is at a stalemate in his writing and his personal life. When his best friend Evan Walker moved into Kyle’s apartment six months ago, Kyle realized that his feelings for Evan are much stronger than just friendship; Kyle is in love with Evan. Add to that the delivery of Kyle’s deceased grandfather’s secret journal and Kyle soon finds his world turned into total chaos.  

Suspense is an apt description for Take Me Home. There is the trepidation of waiting for the journal to reveal its secrets, as well as the anticipation of an elevation in Kyle and Evan’s relationship. The well written plot feeds the reader a small experience at a time before the venue shifts, such as Kyle and Evan stand close enough to kiss but then the spell is broken and they move away from each other. It is edgy scenes like this that had me wishing I could bump their heads together. However, as the story unfolds, there are several breathtaking displays of exquisite lovemaking.  

Kyle and Evan are similar in many ways. They share a childhood past, both are writers though in different careers, both are secretly in love with each other and neither man wants to do anything that will jeopardize their friendship. What is different is that Kyle prefers one night stands, where as Evan wants a long term relationship. Kyle and Evan both suffer with feelings of insecurity, which is the source of their numerous outbursts of anger with each other. There are several dramatic events regarding the journal, adding more anxiety to Kyle and Evan’s already strained friendship. Discovering the journal’s secrets grasp the reader until the very end.

Sloan Parker has created a marvelous saga that I found absolutely enjoyable. Take Me Home is an emotionally engaging arousing romance blended with mystery, a touch of humor as well as a wealth of excitement.
