Oz (Finding Home #1) by Lily Morton


What happens when temporary becomes forever?

Oz Gallagher does not do relationships well. Bored and jobless after another disastrous hook up, he decides to leave London for a temporary job in the wilds of Cornwall. Surely managing a stately home on a country estate will be easier than navigating the detritus of his relationships at home. Six months there will alleviate a bit of his wanderlust and then he can come back to London as footloose and fancy free as the day he left it.

However, when he gets there he finds a house in danger of crumbling to the ground and a man who is completely unlike anyone he’s ever met. An earl belonging to a family whose roots go back hundreds of years, Silas is the living embodiment of duty and sacrifice. Two things that Oz has never wanted. He's also warm and funny and he draws Oz to him like a magnet.

Oz banks on the fact that they're from two very different worlds to stop himself falling for Silas. But what will he do when he realises that these differences are actually part of the pull to one another? Will falling in love be enough to make him stop moving at last and realise that he's finally home?

From bestselling author, Lily Morton, comes a romantic comedy about two very different men and one very dilapidated house.

This is the first book in the Finding Home series but it can be read as a standalone.

My Rating - 4 Stars!

Trying to review Oz, by Lily Morton is a tough one for me.

There are things I absolutely love about it. But, I also find it to have some flaws for me.

From the very beginning, as Oz catches his boyfriend cheating on him, Lily Morton manages to infuse humor into every scene. I love this.

The relationship between Oz and Silas is wonderful, as it's easy, full of banter, fun, and more. These two men end up being perfect complements for one another. I love their relationship, and I definitely enjoy reading about some of their issues. 

That said, I have to say that I found it way too long. There are parts I wanted to skip, as they were slow. I didn't skip though, since the laughs could pop up at any moment.

The writing of the characters is done flawlessly. The men are well developed, they're interesting and we get to see major growth from them.

The business aspect of the story is a good story, but I could have done with less of it.  

Overall though, I am glad to have read Oz.
