The Long Way Home

The Long Way Home - Tara Brown

I'm not sure what to do with this. I got excited because it was about a New York Ranger, but there's no hockey in the book. My main issue is just that I didn't feel connected to the female character. The way the book is set up, there are 2 male possibilities for her, and the author makes the second one seem almost better than the first. The first one has fidelity issues. I guess it's more realistic? For someone's life... Not mine. One minute Mike was sweet and caring. The next, he's some dirty man whore with a one track mind.


There were a few good moments, but it was disjointed and utterly lackluster. I was left disappointed. Such potential for yumminess wasted...

To the authors out there - If you're going to write about a pro-sports character do us all a favor and at least provide a few moments of them doing their thing. Otherwise it doesn't matter what their job is. The women go to a game, but no one mentions anything more than cheering. Bare minimum describe a play. The boys could have been accountants or truckers and it wouldn't have made a difference to the story.
