Bound by grief, branded by need too intense to ignore… After an accident kills Brett Miller’s parents, the reins of Steeplecrest Ranch fall to him. The arrival of rightful half-owner Cade Armstrong, who lost his parents in the same accident, only kicks up the tension.

The arrival of rightful half-owner Cade Armstrong, who lost his parents in the same accident, only kicks up the tension. Brett would rather buy out Cade’s share and send the man back to New York, but his hands are tied. After seven years leading a hedonistic life in the big city, Cade returns to face his loss. Once he’s got acres of rolling ranch land back under his feet he discovers he wants to keep them planted on home ground—and show the man he’s lusted after since puberty just how good they’d be together. Then Cade’s friend, Jessica, arrives from the city and the sexual tension rockets from simmer to full boil. Brett finds himself incredibly turned on—and incredibly confused. Cade is through waiting for Brett’s mind to open wide enough to let love in. It’s time for the proper application of an emotional crowbar. Even if it means he could lose Brett forever.

    This review has been hidden because it contains spoilers. To view it, click here. Genre description was very misleading. I agree with another review,(Kelly) the female friend character was needed in the story, but sex scenes m/f with her were way too many in the story. I also was very annoyed at her last trip to texas. While trying to get the guys back together she still has sex while TALKING to the one about the other. Beware for those who want to know there is a lot of m/f sex. (lots of girlie bits)

I really wish I could have liked it more, but the menage warning just wasn't enough to clue me into what was really in this book. There were way more m/f hook-ups with the two heroes and other women than there were m/m hook-ups with the heroes. I just wasn't expecting the volume of m/f scenes. From a story telling perspective, I understand the importance of Jessica in getting the boys together. But I got very annoyed with her during her last trip to Texas and her "conversation" with Brett.

    If you know what to expect, Coming Home is a good contemporary western romance. Brett and Cade suddenly inherited a ranch together; they respective parents both died in the same airplane crash and since they were business partners, now the ranch they owned is fifty of Brett and fifty of Cade. Where Brett was already living in the small town where the ranch is located and working with his father, Cade left the ranch many years ago and now he is a successful business man in New York City. This is If you know what to expect, Coming Home is a good contemporary western romance. Brett and Cade suddenly inherited a ranch together; they respective parents both died in the same airplane crash and since they were business partners, now the ranch they owned is fifty of Brett and fifty of Cade. Where Brett was already living in the small town where the ranch is located and working with his father, Cade left the ranch many years ago and now he is a successful business man in New York City. This is probably the reason why, meeting again Cade at their parents’ funeral, Brett is not so happy to reacquaintance with the man; I didn’t feel any really negative vibes, if not maybe, the fear of what you don’t know, even if Brett is big and strong, losing his parents was not easy, and he now is convinced that Cade will want to sell as soon as possible, and he has not yet the money to liquidate him. This is not the “Diana Palmer” contemporary western romance, where all the Long Tall Texan ranchers are filthy rich, here you gain your day with a lot of sweat. But Cade is not of the idea of leaving soon; maybe I felt also a bit of boringness in him, of New York City and of his job there, and maybe he is also regretting to have lost contact with his parents and the life in a ranch; and maybe he is renlightening his youth passion for Brett, the same passion that made him sneak in his house to have a glimpse of his nude body. Now both of them are all grown up, and maybe it will be easier for Cade to have a taste of that body. The strange thing is that, both men are, indeed, bisexual. Strange is, since probably it’s the first time I find this pair in a gay romance, usually one of them is, but both? First time. And they have sex with different female partners in the book, both alone than together, and they indeed enjoy it. And it’s not wrong, absolutely not, but maybe warning me before? The book is listed as Gay Romance, there is a funny warning that says there is a ménages in it (but it’s not said what type of ménages). As I said, don’t get me wrong, the book is not bad, and probably the character of Jessica, the main female character, it’s even a good one, after all I did like her, but I didn’t like her with and in between the two men. But said that, this is my opinion, and instead, if you like a good ménages, MMF and MFM, this is probably a good one. http://www.amazon.com/dp/B0037BS2HC/?...

    I wasn't really sold on this one. I just didn't believe that Brett was really into it. I dunno. Lots of m/f and m/f/m in this one as well, which didn't really add anything to it.

    Coming Home by Ava Rose Johnson is a cowboy romance and well worth a look. Cade has had the hots for Brett for ages, but it is not until he has to come home to sort the family ranch that their attraction develops into more. The world building was tight and ranchy with good pacing and I liked the boys. This was not just a straight up m/m romance, there is some ménage-à-trois action with a girl no less! It worked though, which was good because I’ve read another book with the same kind of feel and Coming Home by Ava Rose Johnson is a cowboy romance and well worth a look.

    I didn't hate the girlie bits like the other reviewers, but the fact that there was not a SINGLE CONDOM in the entire story was awful for me. Not even a mention of condoms or getting tested. I'm not one to demand didactic elements about safe sex in my crap romance books, but Jesus Christ, it's the 21st century, you can't write a book about causal sex without any fucking condoms in it, it's completely out of touch with reality.

    I know there are a lot of conflicting reviews out there, but I have to say I loved it. Keep in mind, this opinion is coming from someone who doesn't read alot of M/M but prefers to read M/M/F. This book does have a lot of female interaction between Cade's best friend Jess and both Cade & Brett. That being said, I think it was a sweet love story and the writing was fantastic. There was emotion, steam, and humor. I would have loved to read more on these two sexy cowboys! I know there are a lot of conflicting reviews out there, but I have to say I loved it.

    What little I read of this was perfectly fine. Johnson has a beautiful way with words. There was simply more female involvement than what I expected.

    The regularly snarky banter between the primarys was often as fun as the action, if not more so.

    This review has been hidden because it contains spoilers. To view it, click here. Ugh, while I did know there would be a woman involved, I accepted that as a necessary part of the plot. But I have to say, that all of the parts I'd enjoyed were negated by Jessica's actions toward the end. Seriously, it takes some kind of unbelieveable slut mentality to figure that the best way to bring two people together is to fuck one of them!

If it had been a bad, melodramatic plot device, maybe, maybe I'd have gone with two stars, but it didn't really even serve as that. I firmly believe that if I'm going to review, I should always say something good about what I've read and here I have to admit that the author did put together quite an entertaining story and up until the very end Jessica did have a purpose for being in the book. There are those books, where it seems the author simply isn't able to write about two guys, but have to force a woman in there somewhere, which I find disturbing. So, solid writing, nice couple, but had this been a physical book, I probably would've tossed it out the window.

    I am putting this one on the DNF shelf for right now. There's nothing wrong with the author's writing style. This is also a premise that I enjoy--the reunion of childhood acquaintances after the deaths of their parents. I'm just having difficulty connecting with these characters, so I'm going to shelve this one until I'm in a different frame of mind. From what I have read so far, I can say that there are some hot sex scenes.

From what I have read so far, I can say that there are some hot sex scenes. However, the main characters do not practice nor do they even discuss safe sex. Jessica and Cade are friends with benefits, and they don't use condoms. When Jessica and Brett have sex after only having known each other for a few hours, they don't use condoms. Then, in the first menage scene, no one even mentions safe sex. This obviously pushes some buttons (not the good ones) for me.

The attraction between Cade and Brett is brought out when Jessica arrives from New York drawing the three together in an effort to awaken feelings in Brett that he does not want to face. There are times when I wanted to bitch slap both main characters to get them to just wake up. It eventually takes a very aware Jessica to do just that to each man at least figuratively and thankfully it works. Love wins out.

    This review has been hidden because it contains spoilers. To view it, click here. I really enjoyed this one. I loved the sexual tension between Brett and Cade, even though some of actions of Brett seemed very unrealistic to me for a "straight" guy. I was able to move past them, though, espeically during their first love scene. I just can't picture any straight guy being will to be the catcher during his first ever anything with another man. I was jazzed when Jessica went back for Brett and they had sex, because I just didn't see how that fit at all. Why didn't she just talk h I really enjoyed this one.
