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.
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.

4 Forgiving stars.
Long Road Home, the third book in the 'Love In the
Heartland' series by Stacey Lynn was an angsty, emotion filled story of betrayal and second chances.
Destiny Matsen left her small hometown of Carlton,
Kansas when she was just freshly graduated from high school, a place where she had suffered ridicule and harassment from girls in her class. She had only one saving grace and that was Jordan Marx, her boyfriend and the love of her life. But when an accidental
pregnancy causes her to reevaluate her life, she chooses to run from him instead of staying with him.
Ten years later, she returns to lay her grandmother
to rest, not imagining that she'll see Jordan there. He was a MLB ball player and far from Carlton.
Or so she thought.
Jordan knew he'd see Destiny at the funeral, what he
didn't expect was the child she had with her. He's even more stunned when he finds out the truth!
Destiny left all those years ago, knowing she carried
his baby inside her.
He wants to get to know his son, but can he ever get
over what Destiny did?
Jordan was rightfully angry at Destiny, but he also,
had never forgotten her, or stopped loving her. He battled his feelings, but true love has a way of getting what it wants.
It wasn't long before they were spending time reconnecting
and feeling like they could maybe start over again.
This was a hot, sexy story filed with emotional oomph.
I loved Jordan, he was a sinfully, protective alpha when he wanted to be, and his bedside manner was pretty intoxicating.
I really felt for Destiny, the teenager, even though,
she may have read some people wrong, there were plenty of others who did run her down. But with age comes maturity and she showed it in the way she handled everything once she was back home.
Yet another great story from Stacey Lynn that I heartily
