"Until Harry" (L.A. Casey) ★★★★

He was my best friend, my best not-really-big-brother, and my best protector.

He was my best everything.

He was mine.

Coming home is hard for Lane. Hard because Harry, her beloved uncle, has died suddenly, but also because of him. Kale.

Kale Hunt has been her best friend since childhood. But it was never that simple. He was Lane’s reason for leaving home and moving to New York. Seeing him with someone else, in love with someone else, shouldn’t have hurt. But it did. It really, really did. So she upped sticks and left, started a new life and cut herself off from her past.

But now she’s back, and all the feelings are right there. As if she had never left.

Emotions are running high for everyone, and tragedy has a funny way of bringing people together. But is Lane reading the signs right? Are they still just friends, or is there something more?



"Until Harry" tells the story of homecoming and second chances.  This is not your light and fluffy tale yet it deals with some heart wrenching truths and tells just how painful love can be.  At times, I found myself so involved in the story - my heart jumping and yelling and crying.  Other times, though, it became almost too much and I found myself pulling a way a bit.  While the writing itself flowed well, the author chose to use full chapters for flashbacks to give the back story of our couple - Lane and Kale.  This is not my favorite although it was done well here.  The story itself had me wrapped up even if I didn't absolutely love the path our couple took.  I did like both of the main characters - Kale a little more than Lane but both were real and true and had their flaws like everyone else.  This is a deep story that keeps the reader turning each page to see if the HEA will happen for these two - there are many times throughout that, for me, it doesn't appear it will.  You will just have to read it to find out for yourself if they are able to overcome adversity and a history of pain to delve into the warmth of love.  (received copy for honest review)
