Sam’s ended up right back where he started – the small Texas town he swore he’d never step foot in again after making fast tracks to SMU. He’s not the young, gay kid he was when he left. He has a music degree now, with no job and is about to lose his dorm room… Shit.

When an old friend has him coming back to where he started, Sam struggles to deal with old memories and an unexpected reality. Things in Alvarado aren’t exactly how he remembers them, and neither is his arch nemesis Cody Greene.

When the two men get stuck together by a promise, the hated memories that Sam’s bitterly held onto for five years begin to unravel. When the dust settles, Sam and Cody have to decide if they can let go of the past to build a future.

This is my first time reading anything by author C.E. Kilgore. I really loved this book a lot. Right Back Where starts off the Welcome to Alvarado series. This book has a ton of angst which I love, lots of depth of emotion too. I like characters I can connect with and cheer for, like they are in this book.
Sam he thought he would never ever come back to the small town of Alvarado Tx. But the woman who was like his second mom, she is dying and asked him to come home. Only for her would he ever come back to a place that holds so much pain for him. Sam has had to learn to get past a horrible night that changed his life forever. Coming home again just brings up all that pain again.
Cody was Sam's best friend and close enough to be a brother. But Cody has a secret about the night that Sam left. One that could come between them again just when they think they can get past the painful night. Cody has a lot of guilt. He needs to come clean and let Sam help him heal.
These two do not have an easy time. Death, misunderstandings, and small town bigotry do their best to come between them. I loved how they could count on each other and come out the other side. When you want a contemporary MM with lots of heart and soul this is the one to pick up.
