Ask Me To Stay by Elise K. Ackers

Ask Me to Stay is the only book I have read by Elise K. Ackers and I was not disappointed.

Ask Me to Stay is the first book in the Homeland series and it is quite addicting.  The characters are all lovable (the children stole my heart).  I loved the family dynamic and the growth that took place.  I felt it was lacking in the romance department though. As a book marketed as a romance, I think the readers aren’t given enough back story of the main characters original relationship.  I didn’t feel emotionally invested in the couple getting back together. We are told they loved each other deeply, but that’s about it.

I think the family plot of the book was more heartwarming than the romance.  I loved Ethan and the relationship that develops between him and his niece and nephew.  I can’t wait to read Dean’s story, whenever it comes out.  I also am anxious for Cal’s book.  I wanted to slap is ex-girlfriend.

Overall, I enjoyed Ask Me to Stay.  I’m rating it 4 out of 5 stars, only because I was disappointed in the lack of romance.  I’m excited to see how the series progresses!
