Pierce is totally comfortable in his own skin, makes no apologies for how he is. Alas he falls in love with a man who is not only engaged to a woman (albeit a sham) but a man who is so confused it really isn't funny. Their relationship is all fits and starts, comings and goings, misunderstandings and mishaps. Pierce hits the bottom a time or two and it's quite sad to read his thoughts. He is a strong individual so to see him sink that way is quite heartbreaking. I would have liked to have some of Noah's POV, it always felt like a guessing game as to where his head was. Eventually both Noah and Pierce get what they want but not before some serious soul searching happens. Some hot and steamy M/M scenes in here, those were written well and again, enjoyable.
Yes I liked this, but felt it wasn't as good as Harbour and I felt a little disappointed that the Pierce we saw in that book fell flat with the Pierce we get in this book. But I'd still recommend it, worth the read!

Ok, I’m over it. Onward……So Pierce is your regular playboy. One night stand kinda guy that doesn’t do repeats and everyone knows the score. Lately though Pierce experiences what a lot of people who are single and play the field, loneliness. The chase and fun of having a one night stand was always great but unfulfilling at the same time.
Then Pierce meets Noah.
Noah is currently a higher up corporate guy that Pierce’s family attorney firm is vying to represent. The connection is immediate but Pierce is unsure if Noah bats for his team. Usually his radar isn’t so off. But he can’t quite tell if Noah is gay. Unfortunately, Noah doesn’t know either.
Noah has been with both men and women but doesn’t know which team he wants to be a permanent player for. So, Pierce takes on Noah as a sort of project and attempts to introduce him into the lifestyle that he embraces without reserve. Of course you have your normal obstacles that come with any relationship but, you also have more complicated obstacles that come with a same sex relationship.
Noah’s family is not as accepting as Pierce’s family. His dad is a political leader that is anti-gay and voices that proudly. It makes Noah afraid to “come out” publicly and therefore creates friction between Noah and Pierce. Pierce feels like Noah’s dirty little secret. It’s funny that Pierce isn’t anything like I imagined he’d be. From reading so many books about men like this, I have a certain stigma that I relate to them. Yeah yeah. I’m prejudice. Anyway, I tend to think of them as cold and uncaring and calculating. Until some person comes along and breaks through their shell. Soooooo not the case with Pierce. He certainly has feelings and went through a lot of conflicting feelings when it came to Noah.
It was different to experience these types of reactions and feelings through a same sex relationship. Some were similar but some were different. I thoroughly enjoyed this installment to the Runaway Home series. Loved Pierce and Noah!!! Stop wasting time reading what I think and go find out for yourself.
There was so much going on in Pierce's world - you only got glimpses of it when you're reading Harbour. You truly had no flipping idea that his life was so chaotic and all that he is hiding from his friends. It's not secret that Pierce has a mysterious lover - you just probably would not have ever guessed his identity. It is completely right there - the truth, happiness and the despair. The author does an incredible job showing you want she wants you to know and nothing more.
Pierce's character was enticing. He is sweet and sexy. Intelligent. Dominant. Pierce knows who he is and what he needs in life. Unfortunately, he falls in love with a man who is very much unsure of who he is and desperately wants his sexual desires to remain hidden. It's a love story that feels doomed to fail but that you're praying to succeed.
I truly enjoyed getting to know Pierce and reading his story. I thought his book is very well written and it completely entertaining. If you were fans of the authors first book Harbour you do not want to miss out on Pierce's story.
I truly enjoyed this story, it had me smiling at different parts, and crying at others. Tears are a sign of a great book to me. It means I am truly connected to the charcters. That's how I felt with Pierce. I got a glimpse of this amazing man in Harbour. His mystery man intrigued me. I couldn't want to find out who it was.
In the end, the book is about finding love. Finally allowing someone in and giving part of yourself to someone else. I loved this story from beginning to end and I look forward to reading more from this author.

Pierce is an amazing best friend; he goes over and above for Harbour. He’s her lifeline and her fairy godmother, but he’s so much more than that. He’s fierce in his loyalty to people, and he’s perceptive enough to know that he can’t change or coerce people who don’t want to be. He hasn’t been in a serious relationship for quite some time, and he wavers between remaining a bachelor or settling down, so the mixed messages he receives from the one man who may be able to sway his decision is a problem. Pierce deserves a man who is 100% committed to him, and he’s not sure if he’s willing to wait for his mystery man to decide where he stands.
I’m so glad that Penelope gave readers Pierce’s story. There is some overlap between his novella and Harbour’s story, but because readers get it through Pierce’s point of view, it adds another perspective to all of the events that occurred. I have to admit, though, I did want a bit more insight into Pierce himself. There’s still quite a few questions I want answered about his past and the choices he made/makes. I didn’t feel like we were given the whole picture of who Pierce is and because I adore his character so much, I guess I just wanted more. Hopefully as the series progresses, we’ll be able to check back in with him!
