Sam Leavitt has two goals when he returns home to Stewart Mills to fill in for Coach McDonnell: to keep the school from finding a permanent replacement while Coach gets back on his feet, and to reconnect with his mother. As substitute coach for the high school football team, Sam must work hard to keep the boys on track, and that means spending time with the sexy guidance counselor he shared a hot night with months ago.
Jen Cooper knows what she’s looking for, and it’s not Sam—he wasn’t even supposed to come back. She wants a cultured, romantic soul, not some rough-around-the-edges guy with calloused hands—and a hard, muscular body. But seeing him every day forces Jen to question what she really wants out of life. And as Sam begins to deal with his past, Jen discovers there’s more to him than she imagined.
Homecoming was cute and of course I'm a sucker for reunion stories so I was into this one from the start.
There wasn't a whole lot of drama, sexiness or excitement in this book which was kind of nice for a change of pace. For those readers who want to get away from most of that angsty craziness gotta be tv theme emotional instability this slow pace comfortable read is one that allows you to settle in and just enjoy a slow build romance that fits for any of those small town tight knit community stories.
Although I do wish we had gotten more feeling or emotion from both Jen and Sam it was nice to be able to just sit back and take it all in without much of the typical gotta get down and dirty with it to make it enjoyable kind of things.
It was sweet, it was realistic and didn't build up too much for heavy expectations.
In the end Homecoming gave just enough love to provide the warm and fuzzies without any snags.
