Long Way Home, by Katie McGarry

 

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 reevaluating 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.

 

Today, I had planned to review Long Way Home, however, I haven’t finished it.

I have noticed a trend in all of the books in this series. In every book, one or more of the main character’s has a trust issue with the club.

Emily didn’t know them or feel comfortable around them. Her grandmother kept giving her hints about her mother’s past.

In the second book, Razor had issues not knowing what really happened when his mother died.

I thought Violet would be the major player in continuing this trend in Long Way Home but I am surprised that Chevy (like Chevy Chase or the car manufacturer?) has also been presented with a possible secret to his father’s past.

For a “legit” motorcycle club, they seem to continuously have issues. I guess drama can happen anywhere.

I consider myself to be an independent woman but I grew up with my mom cooking dinner then, having to make my dad his plate so I know there are people like that. I gave him a hard time about it until he started making his own plate.

Anyway, I never realized how independent I was until reading this and feeling just as angry and frustrated as Violet that she isn’t included in the club.

That being said, I think Razor is still my favorite because he is his own man, as much as he can be. Maybe as this book progresses Chevy will give him a run for his money. I see some promise.

Sometime Later…

Okay, I guess I never finished this review or it was lost in the website builder versus Wordpress website confusion. I ended up really liking this and though Chevy didn’t really become his own man until the end he did get there eventually…

Violet did not give up fighting for what she felt she deserved and her motive in leaving Chevy was honorable but it caused a lot of pain and some of her troubles in previous books could have been avoided if she hadn’t gone that way.

AND the best part!!! Chevy met my favorite character!!

He finds out the truth about his dad and that gives him the courage to stand up for what he wants. Overall this book was tense and somewhat frustrating.It was, like the others, mysterious but full of good intentions and love. I am from a large family though not quite this large and sometimes best intentions are not taken how they are meant to be taken. We have managed to stick together which is saying something these days. I highly recommend this book as well as the others.
