    This is my first read by this author and I was pleasantly surprised This is such a wonderfully feel good fluffy romantic and incredibly sweet book Sam the MC was a sweetheart From the first page of the book I had the biggest smile on my face I laughed a lot smiled a lot and was very sad at a certain point In my humble opinion if a book manages to make you have all those feelings then no need to focus on the other minor details that could potentially bother you is it a bit cheesy? Yes Is it a bit predictable? Yes Do I care? NO So I totally recommend this one if you need a fluffy read that would just make you feel so damn good 45 rounded up to 5

    This a very very sweet story If you’re not into overwhelming chemistry and nice people being happy Coming Home is probably not for you but you’ll be missing outSam a total sweetheart is a Year 4 teacher in a private school in Melbourne Australia At the start of the new year she’s volunteered by the school director to tutor famous Hollywood actress Abigail Taylor’s daughter Grace while the star is in town for a movie Sam is a huge Taylor fan and pretty soon both Grace and Abigail Abby in return become huge Sam fans That’s what being a total sweetheart gets youSomething is obviously happening from the beginning between Sam and Abby I wouldn’t say it’s love at first sight but there’s definitely interest As much as I loved the relationship between Sam and Grace and even though I know the way to a mother’s heart is through her kids I wish there had been Sam Abby interaction in the first part of the story From the little there is the chemistry is ginormous but still it feels a little too much of the first stages of falling for each other happens backstage After a while it gets much balanced and all is well in the world Until of course the movie is almost done and Abby and Grace prepare to go back to Los AngelesI’ve been reading a lot of books with children in them and either I’m getting old and soft or authors are getting better at writing kids In any case Grace completely sounds like a real child a very charming vivacious nine year old one and she’s an important and welcome part of the storyBoth Abby and Sam are good people and you can’t help wanting them to be happy Sam is so talented at making everyone around her feel good and at ease that apart from Stacey Abby’s PR person every character feels like someone who would make a good friend I don’t know how much of that comes from the characters themselves or from the fact that the reader comes to know them through their interplay with Sam She seems to make everybody happy so maybe we only see their good side thanks to herThere’s a contagious energy in this book that comes from the characters’ spirited personalities but also from the structure of the story which is told in rather short scenes It’s both good and bad in that it gives the story an excellent pace but at the same time I wish I had had time to settle in some of the scenes to immerse myself a little longer in the feelings they evoke Because they are pretty big feelings And that’s definitely a good thing I received a copy from the author and I am voluntarily leaving a review

    Really solidly written and very entertaining book with great characterization but could have benefited from stronger editing and better ebook formatting Will definitely keep an eye on KJ's new offerings in future and read her backlist425 starsSeptember 6 2019

    Breezed through this lovely read on the train to Paris last weekend I'm a total sucker for books featuring celebrities swoon Considering there are already uite a few well written reviews out there i'll keep this shortThe book contains some light humor and lots of fluffy feel good moments involving Grace Abigail's far too well behaved 9 year old daughter The banter between Sam and the security guards is a personal favorite of mine It's also fairly low in angst except for one particular moment that had me gaping at my e reader going How is this happening? That scene was crazy and took me completely by surpriseThough I can't label this as a classic slow burn the book builds up great chemistry towards what will eventually become a relationship between Sam and Abigail The only thing that caused some uestions for me was the switch in Sam's character view spoilerFor someone who claimed to have trouble speaking to women she had no trouble tuning into her inner porn star during that foot massage scene hide spoiler

    Ordinary plus extraordinary eual an adorable and heartwarming courtshipSam Markson is a coveted teacher at a posh private school in Melbourne Australia Abigail Taylor is a famous american movie star that needs someone to watch and provide education to her daughter while she is filming Sam's father who works in show business recommends his daughter for the job This book is available through Kindle Unlimited You never know what kind of uality you are going to get But I had seen uite a few positive reviews flowing through so I decided to give this a shot I am so glad that I did and I hope people do as wellI loved Sam Good at her job and bad with women She just doesn't know how to interact with them in order to pursue any interest she has Which is so surprising because she is charismatic likable and above average at making people feel comfortable She is thoughtful and doesn't take herself too seriously The way that she interacts with Abigail's daughter is special That relationship was as sweet to witness as the one between Sam and Abigail So many romance books tell the reader how much characters love each other So few excel at showing you them falling Honestly I can't say I remember a book that did it better This was full of moments You could feel the adoration Anytime Abigail observed Sam with Grace was swoon worthy This was proudly Australian I learned a bit about the crazy local ideas of interesting foods And it was funny to read about an american accentOverall this book way exceeded my expectations It was a charming story of falling in love despite everything that says you shouldn't I recommend this to everyone I don't think you will be disappointed Romance Australia celebrity education relationships volunteering animals dance offs and some horrific sounding food called a chip roll

    I loved Coming Home when I first read it and for the life of me I can’t understand why I gave it only 4 The audiobook version is just as good so I’m upgrading it to the 5 I should have rated it in the first placeSince I already reviewed the story I’ll just say that chapter 18 broke my heart all over again then focus on the narration I loved it It’s Ruth Guice’s first audiobook and I guess it shows a little in some of the pauses that are a tad too long or a couple of instances where the pace slows down a bit but it really doesn’t matter when everything else is so freaking good Sam’s voice is awesome just as sweet as I imagined Grace’s sounds like the adorable kid she is and Abigail’s voice is perfectly sexy as befits a Hollywood superstarKJ is an Australian author and the story is set in Melbourne so she went with an Australian voice over artist which pleases my ears a lot I hope Ms Guice keeps narrating lesfic KJ’s other books of course but also various authors’ because she’s a real find She brought tears to my eyes uite a few times and managed to bring even text messages to life That’s serious talent

    This was my first novel by this author and WOW I just loved it As I know this is her third book yet And I will definitely be reading the others tooThe story is a heartwarming romance with “Sam” Samantha Markson and “Abby” Abigail Taylor in lead roles But there is a third really important person I can’t leave out Abby’s nine year old daughter Grace And don't stop because of that child she's just great It isn’t a new kind of story but even when I knew what will be the problem it didn’t stop me from reading this sweet love story When Abby a world famous actress from the States comes to Melbourne for starring in her new film she brings with her Grace She wants for her daughter that she learns as much as she can about the country her mother originally is coming from She hires a private teacher and therefore Sam is coming on the scene Sam is a teacher at a private girls school when the school's director gives her the order to teach a nine year old girl for three months I fell in love with Sam immediately her humor her ability to make everybody at ease and her charm let me fall for her That she is tall blonde and beautiful didn’t hurt either She’s such a sweetheart Like Sam I also had a little crush on Abby too the gorgeous beautiful actress The chemistry is great and sparks are flying very soon but it isn’t instant love it’s of a slow burn romance Whit the sword of Damocles hanging above their heads both women don’t want to start something with each other when after three months Abby will go back to the US But as you know you can’t organize everything in your life as you want especially when it comes to love The romance is sweet but what I liked the most was the talking and the interaction with each other It is written very well with a great part of humor and witty comments and with some great secondary characters as well Sam Abby and Grace are very well characterized and developed and the whole story is realistic I highly recommend this book to every romance lover I’m happy I’ve read this book and have discovered a new author for meMy rating 475 starsARC provided by the author and LezReviewBookscom in exchange for an honest review

    Not sure why but I really love a good celebrity romance and this one popped into KU at just the right time for me It had some of the hallmarks of being a KU book namely a few editing issues that didn't really distract too badly and would have been even better with a strong editor but it was a well written novel I'm impressed with KJ and will be looking forward to future novels of hers 425 stars

    Coming Home by KJ – 5 Stars for this pleasant enjoyable romanceThis is the first book I’ve read by this author and I doubt it will be my last Samantha Sam Markson teaches the American euivalent of 4th grade at an exclusive private school in Melbourne Australia She is hired to teach and in effect be a nanny to Grace the 9 year old daughter of the world famous American actress Abigail Taylor for three months Abigail is in Melbourne to shoot a movie Sam plans to teach Grace academics but also wants to take her in the afternoons around Melbourne to visit museums galleries sights etc Because of Abigail’s long hours most days Sam agrees to also stay overnight Sam is a great character She is tall her exact height isn’t given but I assume almost 6 feet thin and blonde Her best friend Cath describes Sam as gorgeous and Sam tells her “I’m not gorgeous I’m interesting looking It’s an important difference” But I think most importantly she is kind with a uick wit and self effacing humor She actively makes friends by being considerate and observant For instance she uickly charms Abigail’s huge scary American bodyguards with her humor and later by regularly bringing them Australian sweets to taste She makes those around her smile and laugh especially Abigail and Grace But what also makes her a great teacher she is able to “command” attention when she needs to I was pleasantly surprised when Chapter 7 opens with Abigail’s point of view Until then it was just Sam’s With Abby’s POV the mutual attraction and chemistry was off the charts Such a contrast from a recent book I read where I felt the chemistry between the MCs was practically nil and very disappointing Or maybe because of the difference between the two books made this chemistry standout? Doesn’t matter I enjoyed it It made me think about what is chemistry between characters? Yeah I had to google it and asked a couple of friends Research is what I do It’s one of those “You’ll know it when you see it” type of concepts I found an excellent article Romantic Chemistry and this story ticked all the boxesThe other main characters are Grace who bonds with Sam almost immediately She is intelligent and yet acts her age And Cath is fun and supportive I was pleasantly surprised when the author wrote in a Filipino woman bodyguard You don’t ever see thatI will be amiss if I don’t mention an instance in the book when I was very surprised by one character’s reaction to a situation that felt forced It was immediately resolved which really made it stick out but I was happy that it didn’t lingerCheck out this book if you in the mood for a nice romance
