Awww, I had such high hopes for this, as Pierce was a character in Harbour's book that I really enjoyed reading about. Unfortunately for me he lost a little bit of his shine and I found him nowhere near as interesting as a main character that I thought I would. The story of Pierce and his mystery man is still enjoyable, and I think Penelope made the right choice in doing this as a novella. I don't think there was enough there for a book like Harbour. I love M/M reads so that most certainly was not the issue for me. The story in itself is not really anything I haven't read before but it's enjoyable all the same. I felt it was a little rushed, especially towards the end but to be honest I don't really see that writing it out would have made much difference. It also felt a little rehashed in many places as the story runs tandem with Harbour's, I wasn't so keen on this.
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!

HASH(0x8cf1ea08) out of 5 stars Love me some Pierce!! 17 Feb. 2015
By Aubrey - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition
This was a novella by Penelope Louleas about Pierce; the sex-on-a-stick best friend of Harbour. I absolutely loved Pierce, who was introduced to us in the first installment to Ms. Louleas’ Runaway Home series. Of course this man-god is gorgeous and caring and great at his job and gay. Aren’t all the good ones gay? I swear! Humph!
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.
Happy Reading!

HASH(0x8cf1ea5c) out of 5 stars Loved Pierce - Sexy, smart, and enchanting! 16 Feb. 2015
By Jessica from Maine Book Momma - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition
I loved this book, Pierce. I thought it was such a complex and emotional story. The plot captured me right from the start and I was sucked into Pierce's life like a voyager. I got to experience him falling in love. Witness all of his heart ache and pain because some parts society doesn't just let all love be simple and open.

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.

HASH(0x8da2b758) out of 5 stars Loved this book! 16 Feb. 2015
By Jodie's W.I.N.E. List - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition
I can imagine that being gay isn't easy. There are so many close-minded people out there that will think less of you or judge you because of your sexual preference. Coming out can be hard, but Pierce embraces his sexuallity. Noah doesn't. How do you convince someone that they need to be true to themselves? Obviously, this makes for some extra struggles in a relationship. And it makes a really great read.

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.

HASH(0x8cf1ece4) out of 5 stars Intriguing (and steamy!) M/M read 17 Feb. 2015
By Jecca Reads-a-Lot - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition
I enjoyed this book. More, in fact, than I did book one. It held my attention much more effectively than Harbour. I had my suspicions about Pierce's secret lover, but I liked that it was kept a mystery until this book. It was a steamy, interesting storyline. My biggest complaint, and the reason for my review being less than 5 stars, is that almost every bit of it took place during Harbour. Upon receiving this ARC, I did not realize it was a companion to the first book. I expected it to be a completely different storyline that would extent much further past the end of Harbour. That aspect left me a bit disappointed, so note that when you start this book. Despite that, I would still recommend this scorching M/M read, especially if you read and enjoyed Harbour.

HASH(0x8cf1ef24) out of 5 stars Every Woman needs a Pierce as a Best Friend! 16 Feb. 2015
By The Fairest of All Book Reviews - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition
As soon as Pierce was introduced in Harbour, book one of Penelope Louleas’ Runaway Home series, I wanted his story. I wanted to know the mystery man who was giving this sexy and suave businessman a run for his money. I had an inkling in Harbour’s story about the man who owned Pierce, and when it was revealed in his story, the pieces all started to fall into place. I knew from the get go, though, that Pierce’s relationship with a man who is still in the closet was going to be trying for a man like Pierce. Pierce accepts who he is; he owns his preferences, his choices, and he needs a partner who is the same way, but that doesn’t seem to be what he gets when he falls for this man.

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!
