Ren Daniels is a maternity nurse who loves her job. She loves her family and friends. She’s come a long way from being assaulted, but she’s afraid of what her future holds. Deep down, she’s afraid that love and true happiness won’t find her.
Cayden Sinclair is a hero through and through. He’s dedicated his life to helping people. First, as a Marine and now as a police officer. Since his father’s death, he’s been looking after his mom. He’s so focused on his career and his mother that he doesn’t think he has time for a woman in his life. But when he pulls over a speeding motorist, he can’t seem to get her out of his mind. As fate would have it, he ends up seeing Ren again at their friends’ wedding. This time he decides to not let this chance encounter pass him by.
Cayden and Ren were both characters I liked immediately. Ren is fun, caring, and compassionate. Cayden is all of those things as well. He’s one of those guys who says the right things that just leaves your heart melting. Over the course of the story, Ren let's Cayden into a part of her life that very few people know about. He responds with his caring and supporting nature. “I never want to be the reason for your tears, but I want to be the one to catch them when they fall.” But he only knows half of the story. Ren’s secret can and will change the way he views the future he’s always wanted.
In the midst of their budding relationship, these two are hit with a tragedy. Instead of pushing them apart, it brings them close together. But it also shows the cracks in their budding relationship.
I loved Long Road Home for the flirty playfulness of the characters and the emotional strings it pulled. These two have a passionate relationship that’s built on trust. I loved the message that you can overcome the dark times in your life and be a stronger person. I loved the message of taking time to enjoy the simple pleasures in life. That family isn't those people who share our blood, but those people we choose to share our lives with.
Marie Meyer has written a wonderful story. Be prepared to laugh and cry and fall in love as you root for these two to find the strength, courage, and determination to go after what they want and fall in love.

After Cayden gives Ren a traffic ticket, it leaves a lasting memory for both parties. While Ren is performing her duties as the maid of honor at her best friends wedding, she is surprised to be asked to dance by none other than Cayden, off-duty and very interested. I liked the chemistry between this pair from the very first and it never stopped. They just fit perfectly together.
Cayden and Ren both have things going on in their lives. Cayden is a former Marine and he is feeling some guilt that his buddies are being deployed while he stays home. He has decided to stay home so that he can be there for his mother who is ill. He isn't really sure that he has time for a relationship at this point in this life. Ren is dealing with her past. She was victimized during her college years and is still working to move past it.
There were so many things that I liked about this book. I liked that it dealt with a couple of really difficult issues. Everything wasn't perfect in their world but they worked to do the best they could in the situation they were given. I liked how Cayden was able to sense when Ren wasn't comfortable and always let her be in control. I liked the fact that this story was truly romantic and they spent the whole book trying to figure out how to make things work. I fell in love with Ren and Cayden and there wasn't a boring moment in the book.
I would highly recommend this book to fans of contemporary romance. This was the first book by Marie Meyer that I have read but I definitely look forward to reading more from her in the future.
I received an advance reader edition of this book from Forever (Grand Central Publishing) - Forever Yours via NetGalley.
While in a rush to make it to work on time Ren Daniels lets her lead foot get the best of her and she finds herself being pulled over by a cop... a very sexy cop that stirs up some long buried butterflies in her belly. It's been a long time since someone has had that kind of an effect on her, and one side of her has her wanting to run from it, and the other wants her to embrace it. Her past has left her a wounded soul, and everyday she struggles to overcome all that she endured, so maybe, just maybe this new change in her life means she is moving in the right direction. And she'd really like to moving in the same direction of a certain sexy police officer...
This was my first time reading a book by Ms. Meyer, and I have to say her moving story made a very memorable first impression, it is definitely one of the best books that I have settled down with this year! I thoroughly enjoyed every moment of this emotionally charged book, I went from moments of having my heart in my throat and blinking back tears, to blushing and smiling from ear to ear. I connected to characters in this story almost immediately, I'm quite certain that they will be lingering with me for a while! I highly recommend you give this one a chance, it is one of those books that will take you on a emotional roller coaster, so my advice is just hold on and enjoy!!

“Finding your North star, 5 stars”
Long Road Home is a reminder, a reminder to love completely, a reminder that your time isn’t garenteed. That sometimes you need to slow down and stop saying you dont have time. Most importantly to stop and smell the roses or in this case see the good in front of you.
Cayden was first hit with the loss of his father, then his mother gets sick, causing him to leave his guys right before they deploy. Cayden was military all the way, the way Meyer described his feelings on getting out were on point. My husband is military and his thought process is the same everytime the topic of getting out comes up. Cayden is so career oriented even now after joining the police force that he thinks he doesnt have time or room for a woman. Until he pulls Ren over.
Ren is slowly healing after a bad experience three years ago. She has great friends and a job she loves. Only thing missing is a man and the family she's always dreamed of, but the family idea may not be a reality. A series of events lead her to realizing what she's missing in life, until she meets Cayden.
Cayden and Ren fall deep and fast. The relationship is as true as the North star. But is that enough? When Ren’s secret comes to light will Cayden be able to handle it on top of everything else life is throwing at him? Sometimes you have to take the Long Road Home to end up where you need to be.
I loved this story and definitely recommend one-clicking. Here are a couple quotes that hit me just right from Long Road Home;
“I never want to be the reason for your tears, but I want to be the one to catch them when they fall.”
“Hold tight to the treasures you have. Find peace in them, because they are your life.”
“The magnificence steals my words, and all I can do is marvel. So much beautifully organized chaos.”
“When I’m not touching her, I’m Odysseus, lost at sea, fighting to get back to his fair Penelope.”
