My life was a dream...

Sold-out concerts, number one hits, and a different city every night...

I’d been coined America’s sweetheart and learned to live by the rules. That was until I met him.

Two years ago I practically threw myself at Charlie Higgins, my mom’s newest ranch hand.

With one kiss he took my breath away, but before it went any further, he turned me away telling

The Road Home has a little bit everything. It’s a very sexy, second chance romance with a dash of mystery thrown in. It was a pretty easy read. It can be read as a stand-alone. There are characters from Backroads. I would recommend reading it as well. This book sets things up for many books to come. I really look forward to more.



I voluntarily read an early copy.

-Kacie,

Charlie and Alexis spent one day together two years ago. Alexis is a country superstar and for once she had the opportunity to be herself. Charlie didn’t know anything about Alexis, except that she was the boss's daughter. He didn’t think he was good enough for her and made her go. They both spent the years living on the memory of that one day spent together. Until Alexis came back to be in her cousin's wedding. They both decided staying away from each other was best but their chemistry

Cowboys, rock stars, and weddings - some of my favorite things.

Alexis and Charlie have a history. One that has haunted both of them for years. It was easy to live with it when they weren't forced to see each other. However, that will soon change. They are thrown back together and the chemistry is intense. Alexis can't resist Charlie but he doesn't believe he is good enough for her.

Reading their interactions and watching Alexis and Charlie grow together creates an amazing page-turner. They know

I was sucked right into this book from the beginning! Having already loved the characters from her first book, I had no doubt I would feel the same about Alexis and Charlie. I found that I didn’t want to put this book down. I look forward to more stories from this talented author!

Such a good read! I received an advanced reader’s copy, and I loved this book even more than Jane Ashley’s first book, Backroads! I especially liked that we still get a continuation of the characters from Backroads. I felt for Charlie when he didn’t think he was worth Alexis’ time. Definitely well written and worth a read! I can’t wait for the next one!

It's rare for me to like a second book more than the first, but here we are. I love when authors continue stories with characters we've already met and still give us more of them. I feel more satisfied having that extra time with my "old friends." I loved the first book, but seeing where those characters fit with the focus of a new story was soooo good! I very much look forward to the next book!

The Road Home was completely amazing! I loved Charlie's and Alexis's story. Their history was complicated , but the entire story had me captivated! Love is love, and it doesn't matter who you are or the circumstances. It just matters that they had each other. Such a beautiful story.

The Road home was such a good story and had my attention throughout the book couldn't put my kindle down even when I reached the end I needed more . I'm a sucker for a good second chance romance and this was one of the greats my heart really went out to the couple . The anticipation for Charlie and Alexis find their way back to one another was perfectly set . Chemistry between them was super intense just left me wanting them to jump each other already . This being the first book that I have had ...more

This was my first Jane Ashley Converse read and after finishing it definitely won’t be my last! After a misunderstanding and just not knowing each other the first time they met, Alexis and Charlie see each other after two years apart, in which Alexis rose to fame based on a song she wrote about their meeting. While both are attracted to each other, Charlie holds back because he feels that he’s not worthy of Alexis in any capacity. When Alexis returns home for her cousin’s wedding, the two of ...more

This was my first Jane Ashley book and it wasn't bad. I thought it was a little slow in the beginning and finally picked up toward the end. It was also a long book by most standards and I thought it wasn't gonna end. But I'm glad I stuck it out and read the whole book.
This is a sweet story of Alexis, a virgin who is a country singer star and Charlie who is a ranch hand working for her Mom who feels he isn't worthy or good enough for her. They have known each other for 2 yrs but didn't have the

I didn't think it was possible to like this book more than Backroads but I totally did. I love both books but I think this is my favorite. I absolutely love all the characters Jane has created. Charlie is everything a girl could ask for. He always put Alexis first even when they first met and he thought she deserved better. Alexis was so down to earth and I think if she was a real person I would love to have her as a bestie. This whole story was amazing. And talk about sexy. Damn. I can not wait ...more

Incredibly sweet second chance at love story that brings a Country Darlin together with the ranch hand that works for her mother. The met once two years ago and were left with a kiss that has been etched in their memory ever since. He didn't know who she was until her mother tells Charlie that she is Alexis Hale. He liked her, he liked Alex as she had introduced herself to him. But now, as it was then, he still believes that he has nothing to offer her, he is a nobody and his past has him ...more

This is the second book in this awesome series, and carries straight on from where “Backroads” ended. I loved Charlie and Alexis and the witty banter between them. This is a well written story which is filled with fun, suspense, mystery, intrigue and love which all lead to an all round entertaining read. I was hooked from the very beginning through this addictive page turner, and cannot wait to read more from this talented author, whose work I highly recommend for all second chance romance ...more

This was my first time reading Jane Ashley Converse and I loved her writing! We meet Alexis and Charlie, who have an instant attraction, after spending an incredible day together on the farm, they are separated for 2 long years. I loved how they were reunited and I loved how neither one of them could deny the attraction. It was a perfectly sweet burn of passion and lust. The twists had me flipping to see what would happen next. I just plain and simple loved everything about this story and I ...more

This was definitely a low level angst, quick read for me. It was a well written second chance romance, with some witty and humorous characters that really made them seem all the more genuine. I enjoyed this author’s writing style, and you really couldn’t tell it was part of a series-I was able to pick it up as a stand-alone. There was a bit of mystery in this story as well, which made it exciting and made me want to finish the story even faster.

Jane Ashley Converse is really making name for herself quickly with this Backroads series, and I absolutely LOVE LOVE LOVE her cowboys to death! The Road Home was an amazing story that I couldn't put down after I picked it up, so I'm giving fair warning not to start it right before bed. It's funny how misunderstandings can play havoc on peoples lives, but luckily, fate can fix that as she just won't be denied, which brought Alexis home where she came face to face with Charlie after a couple of ...more

After a brief moment in time, this was a second chance to understand what they meant to each other. Alexis had fame. Charlie had a dark past. With an opportunity to find love beyond those things, they took a chance. The chemistry was great between them, and I loved how everyone around was also involved and accepting. With a few bumps along the way, the journey was interesting, and I enjoyed the story.

I received a copy of this story through Enticing Journey Book Promotions, and this is my

Can 1 person please explain to me how this book got such good reviews? Honestly, I am stumped. This was soooooo cringe-worthy, so predictable, so cheesy to the point of making you nauseous. I could not read it, I ended up barely skimming it and even I just could not stop rolling my eyes.
