    1. 2 STARS - IT WAS OKAYAUDIOBOOKI don't have a lot to say about this book. It was ok for the type of book that it is. It's a very simple romance, not complicated or original. The heroine beats herself down throughout the book and our hero just wants to know what is going on so he can fix it all.He wants to know what has happened to her in the last 3 years since she disappeared but he never really asks her. They start to talk about it but then they are too tired and need sleep, or there is a phone [...]

    2. I love reading anything by this author. She always brings the characters to life. I haven't found a book by her that I haven't loved.Jules has had a rough three years. She left for a vacation in France and now she is running for her life. She leaves her parents and the man she loved in order to protect them, Manny and Jules meet up again and it's a race against the clock to save each other and their future together. I highly recommend this book and this author to anyone.

    3. Uhwow. Manny's in shock when he found out that his parents are gone and his long lost woman are injured along with them. Jules was gone missing three years ago and Manny's frantically searching for her until he found her. Different and somehow, darker. Jules in danger and she knows that. She needs to get away from Manny before they hurt him. But apparently Manny won't let her leave again, not without him One of my favorite Maya Banks! The suspense, the romance, I don't understand why people find [...]

    4. I normally really like this author, but for me, this one was a huge miss. I had a hard time buying into the whole premise. There is no way that I find Jules to be believable as a spy/assassin. The way she was indoctrinated into the organized not believable either. Manny seemed like a dup in more than one way. How is it that he has worked for the CIA for many years and yet Jules, who has only 3 years "experience", was able to get the better of him more than once. The ending was so anti-climatic. [...]

    5. obsessionwithbooksJules Trehan is on the run from a man she knows only as Northstar and from a terrorist organization she was forcefully recruited into when she was on a post-graduate trip to France, what was meant to be a vacation turned into her worst nightmare. Manual Ramirez is a CIA counter-terrorism expert and has been searching for Jules since she disappeared three years prior, only leaving him with a vague message and not knowing one way or another whether she was safe, using all the res [...]

    6.

    7. MELODY ANNE'S BEST BOOK YET!!!!I have read almost every one of her books - I LOVE her writing style so much!! But there was just something about this book that set it apart from all the othersThe struggle Manny and Jules have to go through to be the together is at times gut retching but always amazing because no matter what is happening they are both so committed to the love they share. Manny is committed to keeping them together and alive and in the end married with the white picket fence and k [...]

    8. I read the reviews and saw that this book didn't get the best of reviews. Don't quite understand why. I loved this book. Yes, the plot is a little (ok more than a little) far fetched and unbelievable. But isn't that why we love fiction and romance novels? I know they are an escape from my hectic and stressful life! Anyway, I really loved the chemistry between Jules and Manny. I wouldn't hate seeing a story about Tony! If you like suspense and romance, give this one a try!

    9. Fast moving, good story! Enjoyed it! Surprised at the ending. Love story plus intrigue. Keeps your interest .Recommend it for all who like Maya Banks

    10. Awesome romantic suspensecertainly tamer than I'm used to from most Maya Banks Felt a little like a precursor to the KGI series

    11. This book was originally written under the name Sharon Long. It has lots of plot twists and was really hard to put down. If I could give it 6 stars I would.

    12. Long Road Home was a fantastic book. Filled with a lot of action and as you can come to expect from a Maya Banks novel, plenty of romance. I'd highly recommend this book.

    13. Didn't like it Did not care for this book. Did not like the main character at all, the book was aggravating and frustrating. Too much bad stuff, too depressing, not enough romance or character development. I typically enjoy reading books by Maya Banks. I look to her books for a fun escape from reality. This was not it.

    14. Great suspense Good read I thought this book was a bit more Muldoon the romance side but great suspense action packed and a good twist on who the bad guys are

    15. CompellingCompelling storyline with scary believable characters and storyline. It is a good look at how absolute power corrupts absolutely. Wow!

    16. 3.5 stars. There were things I liked and things I didn't like about this book. First off I liked Manny. He was definitely swoon worthy and sexy. I love his love for Jules. I also like Jules but more so at the beginning as she is a bad ass. But As the book went on she kinda showed no personality. I like the originality of the story and the absence of stupid romance novel cliches. I was so happy that this author made her female lead into a kick ass woman who knew how to fight and escape and hide o [...]

    17. originally posted at longandshortreviews.cNo matter how long you run, or how far you go, the one thing that never fails is that the past will catch up with you. If you run from someone determined enough, they will find you. And after three years, Manny finally found Jules. What can be done when the one she harbors feelings for is on the opposite side of the law as she is? It brings trouble, and lots of it. Who is Jules? The question haunted me as I read this story. She appears in the book and le [...]

    18. Just meh for me. I have to say I was a little surprised at the lack of smexy times considering this is a Maya Banks book, but that didn't really affect my enjoyment of the book. I liked the suspense story but the romance story left me a little frustrated. Intellectually I know that if someone went through the things the heroine went through, her ability to trust or rely on anyone else would be close to zero. I also realize intellectually the desire her experiences left her with to protect those [...]

    19. The Long Road Home is a Maya Banks non-series book previously released under Maya’s pen name Sharon Long. It is packed with a lot of great convoluted suspense which evolves all the way to the end of the book. Jules Trehan left the family and great friend Manual Ramirez 3 years and has not been in contact in order to protect them. She had been purposely been recruited into an French assassins ring and under threat of her family being killed if she did not comply and was raped by one of this org [...]

    20. Nice solid read from Ms. Banks, but definitely not the hot erotic read that I'm used to from her. You can tell it's one of her earlier books. But the plot is very good and very solid. It's well-constructedually with these books that have to do with terrorism, I'm always a little worried that I'm going to have trouble keeping up since I read pretty quickly but this one was set up well and the story flowed great. Very sad in parts. Manny is a great character. Jules didn't annoy me at all like she [...]

    21. I listened to this book while doing a few projects around the house. I might have read this author once before, but I can't remember the title of that story. This book really did hold my attention, so I did many projects to be able to listen a lot to the story. This author did not put a positive outlook on our U.S.A. government, but she did create a very action-filled story. I will recommend this book to others. There is a very good chance that I will seek out this author again in the future.

    22. I'd give it a 2.5 score. It was a decent story with more depth and less drag than most of Banks books. It was a decent story but I just found it very hard to like the characters. What should have been a fairly heart wrenching story was instead something more in the abstract. Tony the "supporting character" could have been written in way better into the story. In summation loads of potential but just doesn't reach it. :(

    23. Jules Trehan is part of a terrorist organization that she's trying to get away from. They recruited her against her will & they killed her adopted parents in an effort to get her to do "one last job" for them.Manny Ramirez is a CIA agent who's been trying to track Jules down for 3 years since she disappeared telling him she could never come home again. He'll do anything to be with her, even turn his back on his values.Not my favorite Maya Banks book.

    24. This is another novel I failed to list as read. It is the tale of CIA counter-terrorism agent, who hopes to rescue the woman he has been in love with since childhood. She has become a terrorist and brings trouble to the agent as they try to escape from the clutches of the terrorist group. The agent wants her to testify against the group. Many surprises make this an intriguing, suspenseful novel.

    25. Well my fault with this one as i always read the previews and not sure how others feel but if a name in a book is the same as someone i know i tend to put their face to the people in the book and thats what happened in this book i just wanted to finish it, which i did in one dayi have a good friend called jules and as for manuel i just could not get manuel from faulty towers out of my head had a great story line and i didnt not like it but i just could not get into it. fault

    26. This is the 7th book I read by Maya Banks. This book started off really good. I loved this book's story line. I loved the action in this story. This story had the right amount of action in it. I loved the surprises in this story. I loved Jules's character. I felt sorry for Jules. I thought Jules was very strong for what she went through. I loved Manny's character too. I loved how Manny protected Jules. I loved ending. Awesome job Ms. Banks.
