Read full description of the books:
I read The Long Way Home a little more than 2 years ago now and don't remember a lot about the story but I definitely remember Kelly. Good grief this woman was awful and in this book she's no different. Still deeply in the closet and super paranoid about people finding out that she likes women she's now forced to interact with Elliot who is an intern she had to hire for tax season.
So if she's so terrible why the rating? Well as awful as Kelly is, she's also a fascinating character. I don't think I've ever read a more closeted character before and it was really interesting reading about what motivated her and just how truly unhappy and lonely she had become since Beth walked away from her in The Long Way Home. Seriously this woman needs to be strapped to the hood of a car and driven through a car wash because how else are you going to scrub off that amount of self hate.
I have a huge soft spot for the character of Elliott. She's out and proud and truly wants to make a difference in the world but first she needs to finish her internship. I honestly don't know how she managed to put up with Kellie's 'come here, go away' behavior. If that was me I would have been running for the hills a long time ago but not Elliott. The woman really has a tremendous amount of patience and a heart of gold.
It was definitely nice to see Beth and Rory again since they play a vital role in this book. Stevie and Jody from Timeless, (which I will read next) also make a small appearance. The book is well written and the chemistry between Kellie and Elliott is good as well. The only thing that bugged me little was the ending. It felt a little abrupt and I definitely would have liked to see more of Elliott and Kellie together. Overall this wasn't a bad read.
This ends with a 3,75* rating. TW for homophobic language.

Read information about the authorRachel Spangler never set out to be an award winning author. She was just so poor and so easily bored during her college years that she had to come up with creative ways to entertain herself, and her first novel, Learning Curve, was born out of one such attempt. She was sincerely surprised when it was accepted for publication and even more shocked when it won the Golden Crown Literary Award for Debut Author. She also won a Goldie for her second novel, Trails Merge. Since writing is more fun than a real job, and so much cheaper than therapy, Rachel continued to type away, leading to the publication of The Long Way Home and LoveLife. She plans to continue writing as long as anyone anywhere will keep reading.
Rachel, and her partner, Susan, are raising their young son in Western New York. They spend winters skiing and their summers traveling and watching their beloved Cardinals. Regardless of the season, Rachel always makes time for a good romance, whether she's reading it, writing it, or living it.
