❀ ARC REVIEW ❀ LONG ROAD HOME (LOVE IN HEARTLAND #3) BY STACEY LYNN

TITLE: Long Road Home
SERIES: Love in Heartland
AUTHOR: Stacey Lynn
GENRE: Second Chance Romance | Romance
PUBLICATION: November 5th, 2018
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.

ROAD HOME:
 by Stacey Lynn is book#3 in her Love in the Heartland Series. Every book is about individual couples and can be read as a complete standalone. This is Destiny & Jordan's story. Spoken in 'Dual perspectives.'

Destiny had turned her back on so many things ten years ago, but her main regret was Jordan, the boy who always had her back, the boy where she could dream about the white picket fence and marriage, but sometimes dreams are just that 'dreams'. But she did the unthinkable, just as they were going to embark on their dream life she broke it off with him over a note, no explanation just the words on the paper stating that it was over.

Ten years later she’s back to close up her grandmother's house after her funeral and packing it up and readying it for sale. Being back in this town she's fully prepared herself to face the criticism and judgment she knows will come her way, but the one person she wasn't prepared to face was Jordan who was standing in the back of the service, clashing eyes on hers.

Once he uncovers her secret it's a long road of recovery for him to trust her again, and initially their interactions are antagonistic and intense, but they know they have to let go of the past for them to be able to carry on into the future united. Even aside from all that their feelings never died for each other even though it had been ten years, in some ways they were stronger and better for it.

Being that I'm a sucker for a good second chance romance I couldn't help myself when I saw this one doing it's rounds on facebook, I couldn't not read it. This threw out all the feels one would expect with this genre, I connected with the characters, I felt so much empathy towards Jordan when he uncovers Destiny's secret, which made for a hard pill to swallow, but in the end I understood her reasons.

The reason why this is a 4 star read for me is that the secret was too predictable, it's been done before, over and over, so I was kind of hoping for something new, sadly that wasn't the case, in saying that though it still made for an enjoyable read and all lovers of second chance romances will also enjoy this story.
