A Long Way Back by Barbara Elsborg
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

After reading and absolutely loving Book 1 in The Unfinished Business Series ” The Making of Jonty Bloom”, I was dying to read Tay’s Story “A Long Way Back”, I didn’t think that it could possibly live up to Jonty’s story or even come close to it, but boy was I wrong.
This angsty and at times heartbreaking story is one of despair, and hopelessness as both the main characters Tay and Ink together try to find a life worth living for. Reading Ink’s backstory broke my heart and made me see what a truly incredible man he is, I absolutely fell in love with him, Tay and Dog as their story played out.
But OMG!!!!! that ending threw me for a 6…… without giving anything away, I can only say it had me very emotional………..
5 Stars all the way !!!!!!!


A serious accident may have left Tay’s body broken, but he’s determined to live an independent life at any cost. Except he’s barely coping. Alone and isolated in London, his only solace comes from the pain numbing drugs he’s become addicted to.

Ink’s on the run. He keeps his head low, but London streets don’t feel safe. The only way to stay under the radar is to keep moving and not let anyone or anything get close. But the stray mutt that’s latched onto Ink has other ideas.

A chance encounter and Ink’s bungled attempt to free himself from his four-legged companion leads to the offer of a job as a live-in helper. Tay’s moody and difficult, but he’s also scared and vulnerable, and Ink finds himself saying yes when he should be saying no.

Can Tay and Ink find a clear path on the road towards true love? Or will their broken lives prove to be one roadblock too many?

This is the second book in the Unfinished Business series but can be read as a standalone.

This story has dark elements and possible triggers for some—bullying, death of a minor, violence, terrorism and drug addiction.
