My Review:


When I read the book description of ‘Home Field’ I just knew this was a book I’d like to read. I love romance novels, and a romance novel about a professional athlete just sounded perfect. And that cover definitely made me want to read this book even more. 

In ‘Home Field’ we meet young widow Julie Ellis. Julie lost her husband when he was employed in Afghanistan little over a year ago. The only thing that keeps Julie going is her beautiful young son. When Julie gets invited to go to a banquet, she really doesn’t want to go. But her mom insists on her having a little fun for once. It’s time Julie start living again! But that’s easier said than done. At the banquet Julie meets handsome Reagan Harrison. Reagan is a professional athlete who’s has gained a lot of fame and he is known for his charms and being surrounded by many beautiful woman. But when he meets Julie, everything changes. But how can he win the heart of a woman who loves another man?

‘Home Field’ is a beautiful book that grabbed me from the very first page. Julie Ellis is a very nice, and caring woman who has lost the love of her life. And it’s hard for Julie to keep going. The only thing that keeps her going is her son. And boy was it nice to read about Julie and her son. I loved how Julie loved her son, and did everything to make his life good even though his father would never be coming home. 

The romance between Julie and Reagan is from the very beginning very beautiful, sweet and enchanting to read about. I loved those two! I love how this big strong athlete Reagan fell in love with Julie, and tried to do everything is his power to win her heart. I loved how Reagan was with Julie’s son. It was touching and I just couldn’t stop reading this book.

I didn’t expect to love this book as much as I did. Most times I have trouble loving a book about second love. Not that there’s something wrong about it. I just always kind a feels sad that the first love didn’t work out. And I’m always a little scared that the ‘new’ romance will always feel like the second best thing. But in this book the romance between Julie and Reagan definitely didn’t feel like the second best. 

Honestly, there was nothing about ‘Home Field’ I didn’t like. It was a charming book, with some amazing chemistry and I just loved it. I definitely need to read more books by Laurie Winter.
