My Review of Feels Like Home -- Evelyn Adams
This is book one in the Southern Heart Series.
I gave this book 5 stars.
This is Jude and Autumn's story.
From the first page I read I was captured by this story. It is told in such a sweet way, but also has that steamy edge to it too. The sparks that fly when Jude and Autumn meet are off the charts! She has come home for her grandmother's funeral. She has had a hard life and was determined to make something of herself. She graduated and went to college and got a good job away from the small town she grew up in. When her grandmother dies and she goes back to attend the services. She sees that her brothers and sisters lives are falling apart. She decides to stay in this small town and live in her grandmother's house. This is where she meets Jude. She went to school with him, but he doesn't remember her. But he wants to get to know her. She is a breath of fresh air to him. He is from the right side of the tracks, she is from the wrong. Where they come from you don't mix those two up. But he doesn't care. The town is talking and they are falling in love. When it all finally comes out will she be able to handle the fact that he is from the Southerland family? Will she let the walls fall and keep them down? And will Jude listen to what the people say when they tell him that you don't mix families like that?
There was something special about this book, first off the writing flowed and was just amazingly written. Such a talented author. Secondly from the moment I started reading it I was captured not only by Autumn and Jude, but by all the people in this town. Her sister Summer and Niece Abby. Jude's best friend Andrew and his twin brothers. I wanted to know this town and all the people there. The love story is beautiful and at times Jude took my breath away with how he felt about Autumn. They felt real to me, like it wasn't just a story being told. I love those kind of books that just grab you and suck you in and don't let you go even after you are done reading them. It was a pure love, a real love and a love that was needed by both of these two characters.
I recommend that you read this book. You don't want to miss a moment of Evelyn's writing! Thank you for such an amazing story!!! I cannot wait to read the next book in the series!! !<3
