Londyn McCormack didn’t have a typical childhood. She ran away from home at sixteen, escaping parents more interested in drugs than their daughter. She doesn’t have loving siblings or an adorable pet. Her only family is the five other runaway kids who shared her junkyard home.
Life pulled them all in separate directions, taking her to Boston. For a short time, she thought she’d found something permanent. But after a devastating divorce, she’s running away again, this time to find a lost friend.
She’s driving across the country in her convertible. As a teenager, the rusty car was her shelter. As an adult, it’s her ride to freedom.
Except one flat tire derails her trip. Her life collides with Brooks Cohen. They walked away from the first crash. The second might destroy them both.
Imagine the life you built falling apart as quickly as it landed in your lap. It is the stark reality that Londyn is facing in her life. Shedding the tendrils of a marriage that was less that fulfilling, Londyn sets out on a trek across the US to gain back some of her past. It is journey that was meant to lead Londyn to uncover the strength that she possessed long ago, but had somehow lost along the way. What Londyn didn’t count on was a little bit of intervention in the form of a busted tire.
When a bump in the road leads to Londyn crossing paths with Brooks, things take an unexpected turn in this quaint town. Brooks is everything that Londyn could hope for in a man, but staying here in West Virginia just isn’t in the plan. As Londyn waits for her repairs, she decides spending a little time with Brooks wouldn’t hurt. Or will it? The attraction between the couple is bursting at the seams, but is there any reason to indulge when Londyn is honest that she will not stay?
Runaway Road is the latest release from Devney Perry and the first in a new series. The concept of finding a second chance at happiness in life is very appealing as a reader. Londyn and Brooks kept me glued to my reader with the simplicity of their attraction. What’s not to love when the characters come from humble beginnings? Brooks was definitely the type of man that readers would dream of finding that ‘happily ever after’ with.
This story has it all…..angst, romance, and an attraction that is off the charts. The one thing I found distracting was the face the descriptions of the setting took place in West Virginia. If you know West Virginia well, then you know this town would never exists in a million years, nor the beautifully descriptive words surrounding the backroads. It was a bit distracting to imagine such a place in West Virginia, so I had to push that information out of my mind. Otherwise – the inconsistencies would have driven me crazy.
Runaway Road is definitely the type of story that you long to find in a sea of new releases. It has everything wrapped up in an interesting cover just waiting for you to dive into. Make sure you add Runaway Road to your collection…..you can thank me later!!
“When was the last time you had pie for dinner?”
“Can’t say I ever have.”
Her fork dove into the chocolate cream. She hummed and her eyes drifted closed when the bite passed her lips. She savored it, rolling it around in her mouth. The woman had a talented tongue—lucky pie. She moaned again, torturing me with the subtle sound.
She swallowed, then shot me a smile that was pure sex. “You’re missing out.”
I snapped my fingers, raising my hand in the air to flag down the waitress. When she came over, I pointed to Londyn’s plate. “I’ll have that.”
