Returning: Episode I
Returning: Episode I - A.L. Knorr Mira is a mermaid, a siren, and it's time to come home, out of the water, and find a mate. Instinct is her guide, and her and her mother prepared for this eventuality. But being a mermaid out of water isn't as easy as she anticipated, especially when her new friend and finding her "One" collide. Now she'll need to fine tune her humanity to figure a way out of this mess, and keep her identity a secret, a task harder than she first thought.

This novella mermaid romance is fun dive into the world the author has created. I read this book after reading [b:Born of Water|33223763|Born of Water (Elemental Origins, #1)|A.L. Knorr|https://images.gr-assets.com/books/1480641629s/33223763.jpg|53928928], and it's neat to see how that character's mother found her mate. It also features another supernatural character, which I anticipate I'll learn more about in [b:Born of Fire|33825190|Born of Fire (Elemental Origins, #2)|A.L. Knorr|https://images.gr-assets.com/books/1483978184s/33825190.jpg|54488261].

So much fun to be had, you might as well snap this book up and get a taste of [a:A.L. Knorr's|16144117|A.L. Knorr|https://images.gr-assets.com/authors/1483967737p2/16144117.jpg] incredible writing.

Returning: Episode I - A.L. Knorr

Mira is a mermaid on a mission. Having said goodbye to the ocean she's looking to procreate with her still-to-be-found mate.

This was a quick and easy read. The story is enough to keep you entertained for the give-or-take hour it took me to complete it. However, there is a lot of convenience in there. Being a mermaid has installed Mira  with a lot of 'feeling' things. So she will immediately know when she first sees her mate that it's him (talk about some instalove). Also, her set of powers comes in extremely handy. Some things also seemed a bit strange, as for example when Mira is talking about supernaturals.

While it didn't bother me too much in this novella, I'm not sure I would like to read a complete novel that's this convenient.

Review: Returning Home (Alpha's Homestead #2) by Alex Jane
Returning Home - Alex Jane

Nice sequel to Home is where you are

Not as captivating as the first one. But it was great reading more about Caleb, Jacob and their pups

Caleb and Jacob are leaving to New York for a special visit to Caleb's pack. Caleb hasn't seen his family for 12 years and also Jacob hasn't seen his own for a quite some time. It's time to make amends. But not everythings runs as like it should..



Caleb and Jacob's connection is awesome.

"I meant what I said. Being mated to you is enough. Standing up with you in front of our - in front of everyone would make me so proud, but all I ever wanted was you. To live with you. To be bonded to you."

I'd love to read more of the family when they return to their homestead again.

Returning Home (The Call of Home #2) by Alexa Milne
Returning Home (The Call of Home Book 2) - Alexa Milne
Returning Home is the second book in the Call of Home series, but can definitely be read as a standalone. 
Darach has just moved back home, after a case gone bad at work, and his boyfriend cheating on him yet again. Upon arriving there, he rescues a cat that is wandering around the village and manages to return her to her owner, who immediately intrigues him. Brice is a reclusive artist who seems to prefer his own company, but something about him tweaks Darach's police radar and he wants to know more.
I enjoyed the story involving Brice and Darach, although it does have a huge case of insta-love, which I don't particularly like. However, it did take time for their relationship to build, which made up for that part. Brice has a particularly nasty past that he shares with Darach, and they both need to find a way to deal with it. 
The story was building nicely to a dramatic ending when I fell into a massive editing hole. Chapter 16 is duplicated twice and chapter 17 is missing altogether. Unfortunately, it is chapter 17 where the climax and (I presume) dramatic rescue occurs. This most definitely jolted my enjoyment of the story, although I understand that this is an ARC copy, so hopefully this issue will be resolved for future readers.
Up until that point, it was well-written with no editing or grammatical errors to distract the eye. If you are looking for a M/M Contemporary Romance with a hint of mystery, then I can recommend this series.
