Goodreads Synopsis: 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.
This wasn’t quite the story I was expecting. Long Way Home started with a bang and kept me captivated all the way through! There are also some twists in there that I was not expecting!
I loved that in the first book we got to see Oz’s total devotion to the club, then we got to see a different side to the club and question their actions through Razors story. Now through Chevy and Violets we got to yet again see that no matter what the club only tries to do right by their family, and although they might take it a bit far at times they are only motivated by their loyalty to those they love.
Violet is such a strong female character! She is completely devoted to her little brother and to those she loves but she is not a damsel in distress who needs rescuing and is willing to speak her mind no matter what. Girl power! And of course Chevy is not only swoon worthy but, like McGarry’s many other male leads, he would risk his life for his family and is fiercely protective. I really liked that Chevy could choose a different path and still be accepted by the club.
And then there’s Isaiah! I was so excited when they even just mentioned his name! We didn’t get to see a lot of him or his interactions with his family which it would have been nice to see his reaction to the club and how he fit into their dynamic. I would have also liked to see Isaiah and Chevy get to know each other and how their relationship would have turned out.
I can’t believe this is the last book in the Thunder Road Series, I’m gonna miss all the gang. I would love a story on Addison and the “new member” that has taken a liking to her ;) All in all this was a great conclusion to the series as everything was summed up really well and I can’t wait to see what McGarry has in store for us next!
