Alexa

Clausen has never fallen. She’s never soared. She’s lived her entire life floating

midway between passion and despondency, never experiencing those extremes. But

all it takes is one evening with Adam Westbrook to draw her out of her shell,

to leave her feeling bold for the first time ever. He is fiery and magnetic. He

is gravitational, that inescapable pull no one can avoid. After a few chance

encounters, Alexa finally accepts that she can’t stay away, can’t deny the

electricity she feels every time he comes around.

But as the intensity between them deepens, she also can’t avoid the subtle

hints that Adam is hiding something. His wide smile and radiant eyes obscure

some burning secret, some detail of his past that resurfaces to steal his joy.

The farther Alexa falls, the more she realizes just how little she really knows

about Adam and how far he is willing to go to cover up the truth.

Calm Like Home is a story about love and longing, growth and stagnation,

discovering one’s counterpart but losing oneself, and ultimately finding that

one person truly has the power to change everything.

 

 

 

 

“What

an emotional roller coaster this book took me on! This book was so well written

it was like the story was actually happening to me instead of the main

character, Alexa.“

“Calm

Like Home definitely gave me a book hangover. I finished the book and had to

get my emotions in check before I could start another book.”

“Really,

the ups and downs of the story couldn’t have been more perfect. Kaisa Clark did

an amazing job. The story was sweet at times, but very real and raw. I loved

it.”

 

 

The

early hostess ends up running late so I’m covering the host stand when Damien

strolls in through the door. Even in his work uniform, he looks every bit the

confident frat boy. He has one hand casually tucked in his pants pocket, the

other swinging languidly at his side. His tie is loose at his throat, his light

brown hair tousled on his head, lips curled into a relaxed don’t-give-a-fuck

smile. He nods towards me at the host stand then saunters towards the back,

likely in search of some new prey to poke fun of.

And

then there’s Adam, his dark head poking through the doorway. Suddenly the room

is filled with him, with his energy, with his light. I drink him in, soaking in

every detail. His crisp, white dress shirt fits him perfectly, lightly skimming

over the muscles in his chest and arms and tapering where his waist narrows.

The lightness of the shirt is the perfect contrast to his tan skin, to his dark

eyes.

His

gaze slowly sweeps from the floor to my face, and if seeing the four letters of

his name earlier was enough to give me butterflies, seeing him now is like

being hit by a freight train. It’s been three hundred days and yet everything

slams back into me at once. The way his brown eyes sparkle when he smiles, how

one corner of his mouth turns up a little higher than the other. And this smile

is all for me.

His

stride quickens as he approaches and I can’t help myself. My face breaks into

an obvious grin, completely full-toothed and pinched-cheeked. So much for

playing it cool.

“Look

who’s back!” I call out, hearing my voice light up. Being around him instantly

lifts me. This is what he does to people; it’s what he’s always done to me.
