Long Road Home by Stacey Lynn
Publication Date: November 5th, 2018
Genre: Contemporary Romance

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.

Second Chance Romance are one of my favorite genre, and they really don't get old.

Long Road Home is a second chance romance that tells the story of Destiny and Jordan. I'm not really a fan of Des. She made an unpopular choice (to me, at least) when she chose to leave Jordan. She might have her reasons, specifically she didn't want to ruin Jordan's future - but it caused a havoc on him when she left town without anything but a note. 

Destiny's past wasn't really great. She was bullied, constantly. Despite the fact that she has a popular boyfriend, it didn't stop the bullies from targeting her. Being left by a drug addict mother for her next hit doesn't really help at all. She wanted all of that to stop, and just start anew.

Ten years later, she was back again in their old town to bury her grandmother. But this time, she wasn't alone. She was with someone who is a game changer. Someone who might change all their lives when the secret is out. Can they start over again? Or is the trust not enough after what happened in their past?

I couldn't blame Jordan to be an a** to her initially. He was hurt, he was angry - he needed to vent. He needed to let it out. I was just glad he at least gave her a chance, to explain, to do things he didn't think he'd do and he's capable of. I like Jordan - he's a charmer, and he knows how to make Des (and me) just swoon).

It was indeed a Long Road Home. There were loads of issues between the two of them, mostly communication and trust that was important in a relationship, but in the end they had worked it out. It wasn't easy. There was too much past and baggage along the way. But they made it. The story was paced nicely. It wasn't that fast, but it wasn't too slow either. Just enough to get things burning again. 

If you enjoy second-chance romance stories, this one is worth the read.


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.

I blushed.

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.
