3.5 Stars ~ I had a bit of a wild book buying spree in June of this year at one of my favorite publishing houses. Considering Elizabeth Noble is a personal favorite of mine and the description just yanked at me, I was drooling to read 'For the Long Run'. Okay, so why did it take me so long? Backlog my friends, a huge backlog that has taken most of the year to start whittling down. Finally I can read this intriguing story of Jay and Eric. Jay is an only child in an influential family, his father is a Senator, and Jay is gay. Not a good idea in Daddy's mind and to be honest I didn't like his father from the get-go. Jay manages the family-owned resort in Montana and does a great job. Unfortunately, there have been a number of murders in the area with the killer always dumping the body in the same place on the resort grounds. Jay's dad hires Eric, a former homicide detective, to take over security at the lodge. Eric has a very interesting opinion on these murders as he's seen this signature many times and has the files and documents to prove it. But his theory almost seems a little far-fetched, at least until they start investigating. The investigation portion of this story, the murders, and the thrilling finale are very exciting. There's a lot I can't reveal because of spoilers, but take my word that I was more than surprised a few times. The romance and D/s part of the tale was a wee bit iffy for me in parts. Meeting in a bar isn't out of the question and is certainly an oft-used trope, except this is a bar in a small town in Montana. Even that didn't bug me too much. What did is that upon seeing one another, Jay and Eric automatically knew their respective roles. In a BDSM bar I can see that happening but not where they met. It was fun to see them interact and fall in love so my qualms with the plot didn't affect my enjoyment of the story. I enjoyed the mystery and suspense part of this book very much and I did like Jay and Eric. All in all, if you like a murder mystery with a paranormal hint this might be the book for you.
Jay Molloy has been forced into the closet but his conservative senator father. He is resigned to the fact that with his father being abusive and homophobic that all Jay is going to be able to have is one-night stands rather than the loving D/s relationship he truly craves. When Jay meets Eric Keger Jay figures all he will have with the trained Dom maybe if he is lucky is a quick fling. Jay knows Eric could be so much more if it wasn’t for his father. Eric Keger is determined to have more with Jay than just a quick fling and with Jay’s father hiring him to be head of security at the family resort he knows he will have a chance. While Eric and Jay explore the attraction between them things get difficult when murder victims start turning up at the resort. While Eric and Jay are investigating the murders they also have to deal with Jay’s difficult father and navigating their new relationship not to mention Jay’s fake fiancée. Now if they could just get the politics out of their lives and find a murderer that just might be more than human they just might be able to find some happiness with each other. This story will keep readers guessing as to what is really going on and just who or what is behind the murders. This one keeps the suspense moving along at a fast pace with a plot that will keep readers turning the pages long into the night. The characters are well written and sympathic and will have the reader getting emotionally involved with them. While the storyline will not be for some readers for those that enjoy this type of storyline they will find great story with this one.
