BLOG TOUR :: Finding Home by Aine Kelley

Finding Home Blog Tour Banner


Can two broken people help each other learn to love again and find their way home? For Samantha Cole, love and relationships have never come easy. Pain and heartbreak have forced her to build a wall around herself. Hoping to start over, Sam leaves Boston behind and moves to Napa with her best friend. Trying to make better choices in love, Sam establishes rules to keep her heart safe. Little does she know that one man will challenge her and change her mind. He has the potential to break down her walls and bring her heart back home. Ben Foster has been dealing with heartache and guilt for the past two years, believing he lost his only chance at love. Pounding guys on the Rugby field and running the family winery get him through the pain. When Sam arrives the fog over his life slowly lifts. He wonders if she is the one who can help his heart find a new way home. Letting go of the past and moving forward is not always easy. 

Their connection is strong, but their pasts keep getting in the way. Will Sam and Ben's journey tear them apart or help them find a place to call home?

Finding Home is such a lovely and sweet story…It may lack some huge drama and tragedies etc, but it’s full of love and hope..I loved this book..

Finding Home is one of those books that are stuck with you, after you read them..Personally, I read this book a couple of days ago and now that I’m writing this review I can honestly say that I remember every minute of it..It’s stuck in my mind..And even though I remember it so vividly, I want to reread it even more..

I really like Aine Kelley’s writing..It’s emotional and detailed..It’s careful and serious with a playful tone at the same time..She’s a remarkable writer! And yes it’s only her debut novel! I still can’t believe that small fact..

Some books just stay with you..And this book is definitely one of them..I feel very happy and privileged to be part of her Blog Tour and simply contribute to this book’s journey..

Great Story. Incredible Author. And what about the characters? Let’s see about them..

>>Sam is The girl. The one we all want to be. The friend who we all want to have. Sam is a great strong young woman who may feel betrayed and under the weather..But she hangs on..She keeps going..She doesn’t show her weakness or her hurt..She’s a fighter and fighters move on and chase their happiness..

>>Ben was a lost man. I would like to say that he was lost until he met Sam. But that wouldn’t be true. He was lost until he lost Sam. Because that was The moment for him and them. When he met Sam, he was enlightened and yes brought back to life. But when he lost her, he realized who he was without her. He saw what he would still be without her…So he need a small push..Or better yet some slapping..xoxo You’ll know what that means, once you read the book

In conclusion,

Finding Home is a MUST-READ..It’s a great book beautifully written…You’re missing something, if you don’t read it!!

I would like to introduce you, Ladies, to Ben!!And I have a Special Guest Star,as well !!

Welcome, Ben to my blog! How are you feeling? Is everything good with you?
Hello Mia. I’m great. Things are going really well – perfect actually.

Let’s go to Memory Lane, shall we?

What was your first impression of Sam, when you heard her voice and when you met her?

Wow. Let’s see. When I first heard her voice it sounded nice but I didn’t think too much of it. I was too stuck in my own head. But she kept on talking and well I kept on listening. The more I listened the more I liked. She didn’t put any pressure on me and that meant a lot. 
Now when I first met her I was a nervous wreck. She had no idea the affect she had on me. Her outer beauty was obvious but I also knew all about her inner beauty.  One look at her and I knew I was in trouble. A good kind of trouble…and that scared the hell out of me.

What is the funniest moment of you and Sam? Did it involve you tripping over something, spitting coffee over something she said perhaps?! Those were incredible moments, if I may add…

Ha – yeah she kind of turns me into an idiot sometimes. I thought I was real cool, but not when I’m around her. She seems to have the upper hand. She has no filter and I love that about her. But if I had to pick one thing it would be our discussion about “BOB” and that’s all I can say about that.

 In the beginning, you kept pushing her away, despite the insane attraction you felt towards her..How did you manage that?

Again the idiot thing. I was scared. A total pussy. The attraction I felt for her overwhelmed me and I had no idea how to deal with it. For me it was easier not giving in than risking my heart.

You were slapped in the back of your head quite a lot, before you settled in with Sam..When you think about that, don’t you feel that you really needed it?
Ah fuck yeah – I needed it. Oh sorry, can I swear?  My buddy Jack knocked some sense into me but the one with the hardest hand was Gramps! He really unleashed on me.
The most confusing moment I had was during the party..You rejected Sam, even when she put herself out there again and even when you were crazy jealous of her and her admirers..Why and How? I’m kinda judging you here..kinda..

Hey – give me a break. My heart was a mess. And if it makes you feel better I was a wreck watching her. Not having that dance with her still bothers me; in fact, I try to dance with her now every chance I get.
And the other confused/annoyed moment I had was when she left..Why did you not chase after her immediately? Sam is definitely the girl you fight for with everything you’ve got..At least, you got that after all…

Ben - Fuck …you ask the tough questions.
Sam - Can I join in on this interview? I would love to hear the answer to this one.
Ben – Hey Babe you know the answer. I was a pussy-again – I thought I was better off alone.  Not letting you break my heart anymore than you had when you left. But once I had some sense knocked into me – literally- I knew I had to go and get you.
Sam- Awww, I love that Jack whacked you good. I love that you came for me. It’s one of my favorite moments, even though I was miserable without you for a whole week.
Ben – I’m sorry babe. I was miserable without you too. Mia, excuse me for a minute – I need to kiss my girl. Ok – I’m ready for the next question.

When did you realize that Sam was it for you? That she is the love of your life?

Ben -The moment she left I knew. The pain and my need for her was too much. I knew I was gone. My heart was filled with her love – and there she goes turning me into a fucking poet again.
Sam- I love when you get all poetic with me.
Ben – Thanks babe.

What do you love the most about her? And what frustrates you the most?

Ha – that’s an easy one – Her filter – I love it and it frustrates the shit out me. No one or no topic is safe. She definitely keeps things interesting.
I love it because we keep each other honest and talk about everything now.
It frustrates me because I’m a guy and I don’t always like to share everything.
But she keeps me on my toes and I love that.
Sam – are you bringing up the BOB thing again?
Ben – that may have come up but I kept the details to a minimum. We can’t share everything with the new readers.

 Mmm…I’m wondering…In the past, you’ve been crazy jealous of her..Are you still the same way? Is Sam the jealous type? If yes, who do you think is more jealous, you or Sam?

Ben – I did get crazy jealous but not anymore.  I know she’s mine. Besides if any guy came up to her they would end up on their ass. I think Sam should answer for herself.
Sam- Hmm. I can’t say that I am never jealous, but it’s not because of anything that Ben has done. It comes from past relationship experiences. I am still working on trusting my heart and letting the pain go. Ben does a great job stomping those thoughts out of my mind immediately with just a kiss or a touch.

Ben, I really like you so I’m sorry if I put you on the spot for a question or two..But because I like you, I wanted to clear things up a bit more..Take care of yourself and of our girl Sam!

Ben -No problem – I expected the tough questions. It was really great talking you. I will always take care of my sweet Sam.

Sam – Thanks for letting me crash your interview. I love hearing what he has to say. And I think that we do a great job of taking care of each other. It was nice chatting with you.
