Homecoming by Jackie Sexton

"She knew that as a Michaelson girl she had to be careful." -Jackie Sexton, Homecoming

Airane is the quiet girl that often sinks into the background. Liam's the bad boy of Hollywood and is on a downward spiral of addiction to pain medication. But when they meet sparks fly. Can their love survive Hollywood and Liam's drug addiction or will it all spiral out of control? Find the official description on Goodreads.

Jackie Sexton has created realistic characters. And not only this but a large variety of people can connect with at least one of the characters. Ariane is quiet, shy, a wallflower really(I know all about that, haha) so it made it really easy for people to fall in love with her. Especially if they were the same way. It also made her really easily accessible to readers and I loved the inner dialogue we would be given. It was amusing and gave us a glimpse of Ariane's character that is hidden behind the wallflower. Then there's Liam. He was the bad boy of Hollywood, literally. But learning his history, you might understand some of the influencing factors although I don't fully understand them as they're not something I've faced myself.

The plot was really good. There were plenty of happy moments but then there were those moments where everything seemed to be going wrong. The only thing I really had against things was I thought Liam should have had to grovel a bit more. But considering they were in love and Airane's the forgiving type I could understand the quickness of her forgiving him. 

I found myself also enjoying the interactions between a couple of the minor characters for sure. They were witty, sarcastic and it was really nice to see someone in Hollywood that didn't much care for people who were against people that weren't stick thin. It made the book that much better for those of us who are slightly curvy and sometimes battle the body image issues that come with it.

Homecoming was published on June 22nd, 2014. Think you'll give it a chance?
