Lissa's Review: Long Way Home (Thunder Road #3) by Katie McGarry
REVIEWER PURCHASE PUBLISHER: Harlequin Teen RELEASED: January 31, 2017 GENRE: YA, CONTEMPORARY ROMANCE LENGTH: 416 pages FORMAT: ebook, hardcover
Seventeen-year-old Violet has always been expected to sit back and let the boys do all the saving.
It’s the code her father, a member of the Reign of Terror motorcycle club, raised her to live by. Yet when her dad is killed carrying out Terror business, Violet knows it’s up to her to do the saving. To protect herself, and her vulnerable younger brother, she needs to cut all ties with the club—including Chevy, the boy she’s known and loved her whole life.
But when a rival club comes after Violet, exposing old secrets and making new threats, she’s forced to question what she thought she knew about her father, the Reign of Terror, and what she thinks she wants. Which means re-evaluating everything: love, family, friends . . . and forgiveness.
Caught in the crosshairs between loyalty and freedom, Violet must decide whether old friends can be trusted—and if she’s strong enough to be the one person to save them all. FIVE BOUNDLESS STARS
I love this series. Long Way Home was more than I expected.
We got glimpses of Chevy and Violet from the other novels. But being able to really know who these characters are, was just really amazing. Violet is so stubborn and there’s no way a man would tell her what to do. She’s a spitfire and I can see why Chevy loves her so much. She’s a lot more than her defensiveness that she shows everyone else.
I knew that this story would have to be emotional with their history. And that it was. But it’s also full of this danger, that made me nervous. I had almost wanted to skip ahead because I had to know what happened. But never fear, I didn’t. I feel through out this series, it was like the next generation was there to make everything right. Bringing down the evil in Kentucky. They're all brave, and the feeling of family is so great.
McGarry has really stunned me. I mean, why did I wait so long to read this? or any of her books for that matter. I read these books in paperback and Long Way Home was in hardcover. I couldn’t read one in paperback and then the next an e-book. It just didn’t seem right! lol. McGarry is extremely talented. Her words just flow and at times feel poetic, delicate but also know how to tear at you the right way.
Overall, obviously, I give this Five Boundless Stars. I would give more but unfortunately, I can’t.
