Can't go Home By Angelisa Stone -Review

Everyone has secrets; secrets meant to be kept—hidden away where nobody can discover the truth. Adrian O’Donnell (aka: Dre Donley) is no exception. Dre spins tales and half-truths like it’s his job, keeping the reality of his past buried deep within each lie he fabricates. On the other hand, Kathryn Howell is the exception to the rule. She’s a straight-shooter, a tell-it-like-it-is, no filter kind of girl. 

Kathryn’s honesty and straightforwardness is the ultimate turn on for a guy like Dre. He’s never met someone so sincere, so full of truth and innocence. Their chemistry is unavoidable, their connection, magnetic. When Dre sets out to make Kathryn fall for him, he doesn’t realize the grave mistake he’s making. Kathryn’s strength and convictions do not falter, even for an irresistible man like Dre. When his past resurfaces, and the lies come tumbling forth, Kathryn must decide if his deceit and betrayal can be forgiven or if the damage is irreparable. Will the truth ultimately destroy the relationship that neither one of them could deny or even attempt to resist? 

This novel is for mature readers only, due to language and sexual content. 

Janessa's  5+++++ star review:

Angelisa Stone has me completely enamored of her debut novel Can't Go Home. 
For starters the lead female in this novel, Kathryn, is one of the most honest, intelligent, kickass characters I have had the pleasure of reading. I wish I had her witty comebacks and ability to be completely, refreshingly honest. 
I always enjoy a strong female lead in a novel, and even more so when the author pulls you in and makes you feel like you are that character. Angelisa's writing not only pulled me in, I could see this story playing out like a movie in my mind. I felt her pain, confusion, love and understanding throughout the entire novel.
Then you have Dre the very sexy, loving, mysterious lead male character. He is now my book boyfriend so hands off ladies he is mine! He is one of those characters that keeps you guessing until the very end but you love him from the start and then unconditionally. Real men could take some pointers from this character. 
I went into this book thinking it was  an erotic romance. You know one of those books that is all about a sexual relationship. I was pleasantly surprised with the amazing plot and emotional aspects. Don't get me wrong the sex scenes are extremely Hot with a capital H but it is the story and lives of the characters that made me fall in love. I thoroughly enjoy a book that has a great story with some hot sex scenes instead of sex with a little bit of story, and Angelisa delivered exactly that!! Beautiful characters that had one hell of a story to tell!
I am now hooked and can not wait to see what else this author is going to deliver! I am in complete and total awe of this new, very talented author! Great job Ms. Stone I look forward to your next novel!

About the Author:

Who is Angelisa Stone? 

Angelisa Stone is a typical Midwestern wife and mom, frazzled by parenting and housework, and overwhelmed with sports schedules, doctor appointments, and three-dimensional creative projects due “tomorrow morning.” Angelisa dreams of white sandy beaches, clear-blue waters, and Midori coladas in hand, but realizes that her loving husband and four not-so-perfect children are her real dreams-come-true. Writing and reading are her passions, and she hopes (and prays with her fingers tightly crossed) that readers will find enjoyment and escape through her words and characters.
