Home--in the island village of Cloud Bay--is where the heart is. . .

Leah Santelli always knew that Zach Harper, son of a rock legend and her best friend's brother, was painfully out of reach. Then, on the night of her eighteenth birthday, Leah shocked herself by asking for--and receiving--the gift she wanted: one night of passion with Zach before he left town to pursue his rock star dreams. Now, years later, Zach is back in Cloud Bay to record his first solo album. His return could also be Leah's big chance to step up her own music career. But getting the producing credit she needs means spending long hours with Zach in the recording studio...and falling back into the habit of longing for him, for better or worse.

Zach used to believe that a man must put his past behind him. But coming back home for Cloud Bay's famed music festival has allowed him to finally make amends with his family and, much to his surprise, reunite with Leah. He might have left her once but now it seems he can't stay away. Trouble is, even though the heat between them burns hotter than ever, Leah has old wounds in need of healing before she can give Zach a real chance. Can he find a way to convince her that they can make more than just great music together--and that she's the one that he wants for all time?

Leah has been living in Cloud Bay all her life. She is producing music in the Harper family’s studio and happy with her life. There is nothing that Leah wants more than landing a big name to skyrocket her producing career…and now that Zach Harper has returned to town, he would be the perfect person to do it. Leah has known Zach Harper her whole life and has even had a night with him on her 18th birthday, but that was before he became a world-famous Rocker.

Zach is back in Cloud Bay and hoping that he can record some solo work while his band is on a break. He thinks he’s put the past behind him, but he has unresolved issues with his ½ sisters and the beautiful Leah, he left behind.

Leah and Zach both quickly realize the burning passion from the past still burns brighter than ever. Deciding on a friends with benefits relationship, it is soon evident that the new circumstances are going to end in heartbreak and might just destroy careers.

Zach puts his desires above his family, his friends, time and time again, all for his career. What happens when everything you've been looking for stares you in the face but you have to pick one dream over the other?

No Place Like You is one of those feel good, second chances romance that put a smile on your face and keeps you wondering how often two singularly minded people could be so oblivious to what is right in front of them.

In the end, I found No Place Like You to be easy, enjoyable and serving a good dose of humor/angst.

I received this ARC copy of No Place Like You from St. Martin's Paperbacks. This is my honest and voluntary review. No Place Like You is set for publication Dec. 5, 2017.
