Review – The Homecoming (The Bride #5) by S. Doyle

I needed to get away. Someplace safe. Someplace far away from the mess I've made of my life. Turns out I have a half-brother I never knew about. I took a chance, left everything behind to go find him in Riverbend, Montana. Then because I’m me and I have my luck, my car broke down.

The surly cowboy who picked me up didn’t seem thrilled with the idea that I was showing up unannounced at Long Valley Ranch. But he didn’t know I had no options left. It was either this or go back to the ex-boyfriend who hit me.

I didn’t know what to expect of life on the ranch. I know didn’t expect to make friends. I didn’t expect to feel like I had family.

And Cody… well no one could have expected Cody.


She lied to me. She told me she knew Jake and Ellie but when she showed up at their door I could tell she was a total stranger to them. Even if she was related to Jake by blood. Jake and Ellie being who they are took her in of course. Because of the bruise around her eye.

Someone hit her. And while that didn’t sit well with me, it didn’t mean I was suddenly going to trust her.

No, instead I was going to watch her. I watched Ruby a lot. Until I stopped watching her and started wanting her…

S. Doyle’s series, The Bride, has been a great ride.  The Homecoming is as fun, sexy and well written as the previous books.  These men are not touchy-feely sweet guys.  Cody, like Jake (from the first four books), is the epitome of the tough western man.  He’s not going to tell you what he’s thinking or how much he cares in most circumstances.  Which is difficult in the beginning of a relationship but special when he finally does admit his feelings.  Ruby’s life with her and Jake’s mother has been even harder on her than Jake.  She’s never experienced being cared for or part of a family.  She’s certainly never had a healthy relationship with a man.  Coming to meet Jake and Ellie, is the best decision Ruby’s ever made.  She finds family, love and a good man.  The book has a nice touch of tension caused by Ruby’s ex-boyfriend, Jake’s dad and Ruby and Cody’s initial antagonistic relationship which adds nicely to the sweeter elements of the story.  Doyle has said she enjoyed writing this series and I’ve certainly enjoyed reading it.
