A beautiful and emotional second chance romance with a strong heroine and a swoon-worthy hero. Must read! ~ USA Today Bestselling Author, Melanie Harlow
I left home ten years ago, promising myself I’d never return to the place where I had never been accepted. I was despised and ridiculed for circumstances completely beyond my control.
But when my grandmother passes away, I’m forced to return to Kansas. I will have to face everyone who hated me. But they’re not who I’m most afraid of.
My biggest fear? Facing him. Jordan Marx. The boy I once loved more than life itself. The boy who defended me from them. The boy I’d disappeared on, leaving him nothing more than a horrible nasty lie and hastily scribbled note.
When Jordan finds out the secret I have carried for so long, I’m in for the battle of my life.
Or so I thought.
I might have wandered for years on a path riddled with thorns but with Jordan by my side, taking the long road home means more than reuniting with the only man I’ve ever loved. It might just mean finding myself, and the family I never thought I could ever have along the way.

God. How screwed up was I?
“It pisses me off how smart you can be sometimes,” I muttered and sipped my wine, eyes drifting out the window. If that had been the case, then I’d twisted reality for years. Believed it and based a life off it. I pressed my hand to my forehead and sighed. “I’m such a disaster, Jordan. A complete mess. I honestly don’t know why you bother.”
“Because when you let your guard down and let people see you, you’re still the most stunning woman I’ve ever met. You only have to start believing it.”
I dropped my hand as pleasure whipped through my veins. He was always bold and confident. I wasn’t used to this new bluntness. “It’ll take a while.”
“I’m a patient guy. And I’m hoping that at the least, you’ll start to believe how I see you, and the rest will come. You just have to trust me this time. Can you do that?”
Could I trust him? God, I’d trust him with my life. It was a ridiculous question. None of the decisions I made were because I didn’t trust him. It was simple self-preservation.
“I can do that,” I finally said.
“Good.” He grinned.
We were ridiculous.
“So what happens now?” I asked. He gestured to my almost empty wineglass.
“Would you like another?”
“No. It’ll probably put me to sleep.”
He took his to the sink and dumped it. I drank the last two sips while he rinsed out the glass, cleaned up the small mess we’d made and resettled the wine in the fridge.
“You didn’t answer my question,” I said once he turned and headed in my direction.
“Now,” he said, and he shot me that smoldering look of his. Furrowed brows, head dipped, heat in his eyes I remembered oh so well, and continued, “We’re going to make out on your grandma’s couch like we used to. We kiss until we can’t breathe. Maybe, if I’m lucky, you let me feel you up a bit, and then I go home with a hard-on like I used to, and tomorrow, we try to do better than we did tonight.”
His hands hit my hips. His head dipped. A furious heat swam on my cheeks and spread, warming other parts of me with precision like my libido was directly connected to his voice.
And as his lips brushed my cheek, went to my neck, his hands slid up to my waist and I fell into him, the feel of him, his touch, and the way he moved so slowly and seductively, there was really only one word I could give him.

Jordan Marx was the boy every girl wanted in high school, but his heart only belonged to one woman, Destiny Jane Matsen. She may have been lucky enough to nab the heart of the most gorgeous boy in school, but that heart came with lots of drama, not from him though, but from all the girls who lost out to her.
High school was horrible, she was tortured on a daily basis, and the subject of almost every rumor that floated through the halls. Foolishly she let all the hate effect her relationship with Jordan, they had plans to go off to college together, but at the last minute she disappeared from his life without so much as a goodbye and has never looked back.
Now home has come calling and she must return to the place that she has avoided for the last ten years, with a few secrets in tow. Her grandmother has passed and settling all her affairs has fallen on Destiny's shoulders. She knows the moment she lands in town the rumor mill is certain to start up again, and all the people who drove her away ten years ago, will be waiting to take aim once again. But what she doesn't expect to find is the man who she left behind... and he wants answers!
Long Road Home is a moving reunion story that is certain to give a nice little tug on the heartstrings, and bring on a few swoons too! From the get-go I could tell this one was going to be rough on my heart and boy was it ever, the story line was riddled with gut-wrenching emotion, it had my heart in my throat and the tears welling numerous times. I loved every minute of this one, the characters were amazing, the words were powerful and heartfelt, hands down one of my favorites from Ms. Lynn yet! Highly recommend this one, it's certain to keep you enthralled from start to finish!!
I requested an advanced copy of this title from the publisher, and I am leaving my honest opinion.
