Review: Finding His Home – Thianna Durston

FindingHisHomeLG

A Men of Falcon Pointe Novel
Sebastien Cather moves to Falcon Pointe with a dream to live life his way. Offered a room at 959 Brenton Street, he discovers how liberating it can feel to live among accepting people, especially in a household where they practice loving physical discipline. And he quickly gains a boyfriend in Avery, a fellow student. Unfortunately Avery isn’t his first choice. His roommate David is fascinating and good-looking, and Bastien would do anything to have him—but he doesn’t think the attraction is returned.

Tensions rise as his roommates’ wedding is threatened and his present and past lives clash. Outed by the national media, Bastien knows he will never be able to return home again. Just as he’s sure he can’t handle any more stress, David shows his interest. Bastien slowly makes his way forward, trying to find firm footing in the minefield that is his life. But when his landlord makes an announcement about the future of the house, it may change all of his dreams.

Finding His Home is a very sweet, heartwarming read. I’ve not read the previous novel, but I had no problem following the story, and I quite enjoyed the supporting characters. While you don’t need to read the first novel to understand this one, the characters will make you want to.

The relationship between all the characters is what really makes this book good. It’s more about friendship than it is romance (though that is definitely included, don’t worry). Bastien is finding himself,  he’s taking a huge leap to do it, and without the characters supporting him it wouldn’t have been the same. He’s a charming young man, easy to love and feel for as he struggles to figure out what he wants. It’s not all easy for him, and there’s just enough angst to keep things interesting. The story is told from Bastien’s POV, so we don’t get a good look into David’s head, but he’s a pillar for Bastien (and a wee bit jealous of the competition at times). It was nice to see him stand by Bastien through everything, and how he pushed his own feelings down at points because he cared about what Bastien wanted.

Overall, this is a feel good read that will have you rooting for Bastien and his friends and laughing aloud at times. I’m hoping a certain supporting character *cough* Alan *cough* gets a book soon.
