Wyatt Locke over a year learned the truth about him and his twin brother Rafe have half brother named Jack Chance. Wyatt reaches out to Jack but is rebuffed by him and anything to do with Diana their mother. Wyatt seeking to have better relationship with his brother heads to The Last Chance Ranch as surprise. Nothing is going the way Wyatt hoped Jack isn't home. The only bright spot Wyatt finds is Olivia Sedgewick. Olivia is stuck in a ditch prior to reaching The Last Chance Ranch for beauty night set up by Sarah Chance. Olivia is rescue by Wyatt and sparks fly between the two. Upon Jack's return, Jack orders Wyatt around and threatens him. Both exchange heated words and unwillingness to give an inch either. Olivia suggests camping to help Wyatt find some peace and focus. Can the two brothers make up? How important will Olivia become to Wyatt? Your answers await you in Long Road Home. Wyatt's easygoing manner belies an understated strength and determination. Olivia brightens up the room just by her presence. Together they create heat and passion that stuns them both. Jack uneasiness about Diana leaves little room for acceptance of Wyatt. I can hardly wait to see where this relationship goes.

Not the best in the series, for me the story was too easy. Not enough conflict in the romance but still a nice one.
