Review: Feels Like Home (With Love, From Kurrajong Crossing #1) by Dakota Harrison

He’s the last person she ever wants to see again…

Zac Hartford swore he'd never return to sleepy Kurrajong Crossing, but after finally making it big in the music business there's only one thing left on his mind—to ask for forgiveness from the only woman he's ever loved. If that means stepping foot in the town that turned its back on him, so be it. He's not there to cause trouble. He'll simply find Cat, say his piece, and leave.

The last person Catherine Van Alden expects to see in her tiny cupcake shop is Zac—a man she hasn't seen or spoken to since he destroyed her family and vanished all those years ago. Her desire to think the best of him hasn't changed a bit, but he's obviously keeping secrets and she can't let him into her life again. Not without opening up a world of hurt and feelings best left behind.

When the truth is finally revealed, is Cat strong enough to go after the man she never stopped loving? 

My Review: 

An Emotional Reunion

Twelve years ago, Zac’s life took a turn he never expected.  It left his best friend’s sister dead and another boy disabled.  But there was more to the story that had remained a secret all that time.  Zac left town without even saying goodbye to those who knew him.  He went on to make it big in the music industry, but he couldn’t forget Cat and refused to return home.  He couldn’t face the people he let down.

Zac is finally back home, for his friend James’s wedding, and he has a few things to clear up with Cat, the only girl he had ever loved.  Cat is reluctant at first but she soon learns lots of people she loved have been keeping secrets from her and needs to talk to Zac.  The door has finally opened for Cat and Zac, but will they be able to find happiness when Cat is tied to Kurrajong Crossing where her family and bake shop are at and Zac is busy traveling the world entertaining millions of fans?

This book really swept me away.  Zac and Cat instantly become a favorite book couple to me.  I enjoyed learning about their past friendship and seeing how they reunited and took it a step further.  The secret was huge and when it finally came out, it was like a relief, almost like they were real people in my life.  All I wanted was for Cat and Zac to find happiness.  The author did a great job creating characters with depth and emotion and kept the story entertaining from the very start to the very end.  This is the first book in a series and I can’t wait to get my hands on the next one.
