Release Day: Bring Me Home by Cassia Leo: Excerpt #6, Review, Giveaway

The breath-taking conclusion to the New York Times and USA Today bestselling series is expected to be released August 6, 2013.

Claire Nixon is a college student with a past full of secrets and heartbreak. She was saved once by her first love, and rock star, Chris Knight. But when she encouraged Chris to leave town to pursue his dreams, both Claire and Chris didn’t realize it would be the biggest mistake of their lives.

After a devastating year apart and thousands of miles of distance between them, Claire met sexy surfer Adam Parker. With his awful jokes and profound patience, he helped Claire pick up the shattered pieces of her broken heart for the second time.

But now Chris has returned and he is willing and determined to make Claire’s dreams come true—the same way she did for him when she let him go.

With Adam’s former girlfriend in the picture, Claire finds herself torn between the new, passionate love she shares with Adam and the love and family she shares with Chris.

Excerpt #6
A sister.
My eyes dart toward my purse on the breakfast bar. I’ve only read that letter twice, but I remember every single word.

You may not recognize my name. Your mother did a good job of protecting you from her past. Henry Wilkins at Northstar Bank contacted me recently. He informed me that you refused the trust fund your mother set up for you before her death. I hope you will reconsider your position on this, as that money is rightfully yours.
I also hope you can find it in your heart to forgive me for my transgressions and that you won’t hold my past against your half-sister. Nichelle just turned seventeen last week and she’s very eager to meet you.
I hope this letter finds you well.
Your father,

Rachel rounds the breakfast bar toward Jackie and me then holds out her hand. I spot the giant rock on her finger right away and I’m instantly reminded of the two rings sitting on top of my bedside table in the dorm.
“Jake and I are getting married. I was hoping you’d be my maid of honor.”
I try not to let her see the panic I’m feeling inside. The idea of being Rachel’s maid of honor scares the shit out of me. Ninety percent of the time, Rachel is awesome, but it’s that ten percent that makes me want to run screaming out of this house.

WOW. If there is a book recently that has left me with a serious book hangover, it’s this one. Right when I finished, I had to send Cassia Leo a message on Facebook telling her exactly how much I loved this story.

When I started the book I wasn’t fully Team Adam or Team Chris. I knew that I’d be happy either way, though I did have a slight preference. I’m not telling you who it was, but I will say that my preference won. But there is a HEA for each character in this book.

This was one of the BEST conclusions I’ve read in a series. You don’t wait too long for who she is going to pick. There is very little of Claire being indecisive. Throughout the book, you can really see how Claire has grown since we first met her in Relentless. There is just enough drama in the story that it keeps you interested, but I didn’t feel as if this was angst ridden. It. Was. Fabulous. Both Adam and Chris really surprised me with how *they* have each grown since we originally met them. They both love and respect Claire, but it’s evident early on that the love they each have for her, and her for them, is very different.

Though I only finished this one a little over a week ago and have a TBR list about 10 miles long, I’m thinking that I’ll be doing a re-read of the entire series very soon. Well done, Cassia. Well, done. You hit this one out of the park and really wrapped this series up beautifully.
