Chevy is still in love with Violet, but as he's still connected to the Terror - his grandfather is the president and he's has always planned to join when he turns 18 - while Violet is determined to get out of their small town as soon as she finishes high school. There doesn't seem to be a way forward for them that doesn't lead to heartbreak. But then Violet and Chevy are thrown together again in a frightening event, involving the rival motorcycle club the Riot, and their feelings are brought to the surface once again.
This book is all about whether these two can find common ground and a way forward together, despite what looks like completely different paths. It's also about taking down the Riot club once and for all, and I love the strong role Violet takes in working to make that happen. This is a girl who gets things done. Although we don't get to see Emily or Breanna in this book, I loved seeing the bond between Violet, Chevy, Oz and Razor that they've had from childhood. Long Way Home also connects to McGarry's Pushing the Limits series, and one of my favorite moments was when Chevy meets Isaiah for the first time, and both boys realize their connection to each other. I love Isaiah, and I wanted that part to go on forever!
This story also seems to tease some potential future stories in this world. I don't think McGarry is finished with it yet. Or at least I hope not. Breanna's friend Addison makes another appearance in this book, and she definitely needs an HEA. Some other plot elements are left unresolved as well (the names of the traitor(s) in the Terror MC). And though I loved watching Violet demand respect and forge her own path, I wished that there would have been more of a change within the entire Terror MC, namely in including women in their ranks.
I love Katie McGarry's books. After reading so many, I feel like I'm coming home to old friends in a world that I've gotten to know well. She writes characters and relationships so well, and I'm excited to see what she does next!
And I’m not sorry I did at all! I love these books and this one was no different. The book is full of drama and chemistry and friendships and trust and love and danger. If you’ve read the first two books in this series, you know all about the motorcycle club that’s at the center of these books and the group of four friends we follow from beginning to end. Since that very first book, Nowhere But Here, I’ve been dying for Chevy and Violet’s story. I really thought it would be the second book but after finishing this one, it was clear that this one had to be the third. I won’t give specific reasons but a lot of what happens in two comes up in this on and the flow of all three books come together and everything makes a lot of sense.
As always, my favorite part of these books are the characters. I loved Violet in this book. We always knew she was strong and set in her ways and not afraid to stand up to the guys but we see that up close in this one. She knows what she wants and she’s not afraid to say it. In her relationship with Chevy, she tells him exactly what she wants and why it will or won’t work out. She doesn’t wait for him to say what he wants or for him to make the first moves and it’s always refreshing to see that. Sometimes the female characters in these books wait for the guy to save them from whatever it is they’re scared of but not Violet. She leans on Chevy and her friends when she needs to, definitely, but for the most part she’s a strong and independant female character who wants to protect the people she loves and demands to be treated equally and with respect and I loved that. Especially within the motorcycle club when the men dominate the community and think that by taking care of the women they love, they are treating them with respect. And that’s true, of course, but Violet demands more and I love that about her.
Chevy was a good character, too, though not my favorite of the male leads. I did like his character arc and the growth we see him go through this book. I don’t want to give anything about his story away because we learn a lot about him and his past and some secrets that he didn’t even know but about halfway through I loved the realization he makes about himself and how he decides to go about changing it. That and his devotion to Violet and really trying to understand her and be there for her are my favorite things about him.
And of course I loved seeing more of Oz and Razor together with these two. The four of them grew up together and I really loved that they came together so much in this book. Friendships are one of my favorite things to read about in books and this was no exception. These four understand each other and support and protect each other in a way I don’t see often enough in books.
As far as the story goes, I really don’t want to spoil anything about it for you guys. I read this book so quickly and I loved it all and I really hope you guys can have that same experience. The stories from the past two books come full circle, so if you were wondering about just picking this one up, it would definitely be better for you to start at the beginning. We learn more about The Riot and The Reign of Terror and their relationships from the past. And we get a lot of answers to things that were sort of passed over in previous books. Plus, GUYS, we get some really great cameos.
If you’ve been waiting for this book like I have, I don’t think you’ll be disappointed at all. The book starts with a big scene and doesn’t stop till the end. Stories are brought together and wrapped up and we learn even more about the characters we’ve grown to love. Goodreads lists a fourth book in this series and I have no idea if that’s true or not. I’d definitely be happy with more of these characters but this could also be the end and I’d be happy with how everything was wrapped up. I really hope you guys will enjoy it too!
When Violet is kidnapped by the Riot and Chevy is taken along because he was there too. Both face all sorts of danger and, even after being rescued, suffer all kinds of trauma. Violet is told that in order to protect her mother and brother she will have to betray the Terror and provide information to frame Eli. Meanwhile, Chevy is given information that leads him to believe that his father James was a traitor to the Terror.
The is an emotionally intense story as are all of McGarry's books. Both Violet and Chevy are torn between loyalties and have difficult choices to make. As a background note and as what I see is the theme of the book is a essay that they have to write for English about Robert Frost's The Road Not Taken. Both Chevy and Violet need to choose a path for their lives.
This was a wonderful story that drew me in and kept me reading until the final page was turned.
