This book was bittersweet for me. It was the end of a series that really got me into reading erotica again. When I found the Rough Riders Series I felt like a new world opened up for me. The books were hot but they had a storyline and characters that I immediately fell in love with. The McKays became a staple in my reading lists for the last seven or so years. And I will miss them. Miss them terribly.
It's one of the reasons I put off this novella for so long. I read COWBOY TAKE ME AWAY finally after waiting quite some time, but I just couldn't bring myself to reading this final piece of the original McKays.
I couldn't put it off forever though and so I bit the bullet and read LONG TIME GONE and I wasn't disappointed in the least. I thought the author stayed true to the characters and it just seems so interesting to the "parents" as young adults.
Kimi and Cal certainly didn't make things easy but I have a lot of respect for him in the fact that he let Kimi go spread her wings. I loved that they were able to find their way back to each other. I just wished that they were able to get more of a story once they got back together. I had a smile on my face from what I did get of them and loved their story even though I was closing the book on the Rough Riders Series.
I listened to the audio at the beginning but wasn't a huge fan of the narrator so I ended up giving up about half way through and read the rest of the book.
