No matter how long you run, or how far you go, the one thing that never fails is that the past will catch up with you. If you run from someone determined enough, they will find you. And after three years, Manny finally found Jules. What can be done when the one she harbors feelings for is on the opposite side of the law as she is? It brings trouble, and lots of it. Who is Jules? The question haunted me as I read this story. She appears in the book and left me with many questions regarding the secrecy of where she'd been and what she'd been doing in the past three years. She'd been running from something, that much is obvious, and Manny thought he'd never see her again. What is it about their past? The angst begins to build from early on, keeping me interested and yearning for more. Both Jules and Manny have a strong need to protect the other, but there's plenty of secrecy and lies in the conflict to keep it interesting. One by one, the answers are revealed, and the action starts. Dodging bullets, staying ahead of danger which Jules seems to have been a part of at one time. Her determination to keep people out of her life (and safe) begins to crumble when she realizes Manny is in it for the long haul. The pair are strong, dynamic characters that stand out. Their qualities are the kind one would seek in a romance novel. Long Road Home is an adventurous romantic suspense novel. The plot moves quickly, and I never knew what would happen next. There's hardly a dull moment in the story. I was breathless as If I were running with them, literally sitting at the edge of my seat, anticipating the next move. I have the confidence in knowing that when I pick up a Maya Banks book, it's going to lure me in right away, and sure enough, Long Road Home does just that. The love scenes aren't nearly as intense as most of her other works, but they are definitely there. Do you love romantic suspense? Pick up Long Road Home, and prepare for an emotional reunion between two people that have strong feelings for one another but have to fight to be together.

Maya Banks is one of my favorite authors for a reason. Her stories have great plots that dont get sacrificed in the highly erotic scenes. Like others have said, I too read this one cover to cover.Once again Maya Banks proves why she is the best at what she does. Out of the hundreds of books I read each year hers almost always receive 5 stars.

This author tells an outstanding story....complex, and full of twists. Her characters have depth and complexity as well. It is hard to beat a storyteller as good as Maya Banks.

Long Road Home was a fantastic book. Filled with a lot of action and as you can come to expect from a Maya Banks novel, plenty of romance.  I'd highly recommend this book.
