What should have been a beautiful new beginning is undone by the hatred and envy of another.

Ten years ago, Kaine Keeley watched in horror as the love of his life turned his back on him, taking with him his one true chance at happiness. Now that he’s no longer the penniless, shy boy he once was, Kaine is ready to fight and take back what was stolen from him.

A long time ago, Graeson Hardin thought that Kaine was worth fighting for. But after witnessing a crushing betrayal, he ran and never looked back. He wants nothing now but to live his life of solitude, protected from a love that almost destroyed him.

When Kaine shows up ten years later with a heartfelt apology and a believable explanation, Graeson must decide if he can make peace with his past to have the possibility of the future he always wanted.

Having traveled different roads in life, will these former lovers be able to battle the evil that may still be working to keep them apart and find a way to begin their long journey back home?

Long Road Home is a really sweet second chance romance with two lovable main characters and equally lovable secondary characters. The debut book by the author is a beautiful, emotional, sexy love story which will make you fall in love with the characters.

Kaine and Graeson were in love but due to a misunderstanding they broke up and were apart for many years. They get their second chance when Kaine decides to go after the love of his life and get his happily ever after. I really liked the way the author has shaped the characters and the story. Their second chance, the pace of their relationship and they way they fell in love again, all has been written beautifully and emotionally and in a way to make the readers feel. There were times in the book where I felt my heart breaking for Kaine and Graeson and times when I laughed with joy. They took me on a beautiful ride filled with wonderful emotions. Also noteworthy is the secondary characters who add to the story in their own way and makes this read truly delightful.

This book will take you on an amazing ride filled with some fantastic moments and heartwarming emotions. This is an incredible debut by the author and I cannot wait to read more..!
