Katherine Gates has been in love with Cash Greer since the moment he saved her life from a runaway goat. According to Cash, she’s the little sister he never had, the greatest roommate in the world and his favorite coworker. They’re friends—best friends.

In the dark days of her youth, it was her friendships that kept her alive and made life in a junkyard worth living. So she’s learned to shove her feelings for Cash down deep, even if that means ignoring eyes that shine brighter than the Montana summer sun and the smile that illuminates the snowiest winter day.

Except with every passing year, the denial takes its toll on her wounded heart until one day Katherine decides to take an impulsive road trip to the Oregon coast. Alone. That is, until Cash cons his way into the passenger seat.

The farther they travel, the harder it is to pretend. And when she confesses her feelings, she learns that Cash has some secrets of his own. Secrets that will either bond them together.

Or rip them apart.

MY REVIEW

 

It’s a road trip that was destined to revisit the tendrils of the past. All of the memories from a forgotten life are traveling the country in an automobile that was once home to a band of homeless teens. Now it’s Katherine’s turn to revisit the past, and there seems to be a roadblock placed into her path.

 

Katherine has spent years longing to have the affection of one man that doesn’t seem to feel the same. Cash Greer is the son of Kat’s employer and her roommate. The two have never moved past the stage of just being friends. With an unexpected dinner guest fueling Kat’s mood, a road trip for the ages became much more appealing. As Kat sets off for her adventure, and unexpected companion takes the passenger seat on a trip that will test the bonds of friendship.

 

Quarter Miles is the next installment in the Runaway Series by Devney Perry. This novel follows Katherine on her trek across the US for her leg of a journey to return a piece of a tattered childhood. What will tease you from beginning to end is the quest that Kat takes to find love. Cash and Katherine caught my attention in the last book of the series, and I couldn’t wait to see what transpired between the two. I will admit – this couple pissed me off!! That’s right…..I found myself screaming at Cash and Kat to get it together!!

 

Up next – fans will find another tease for the promise of what is to come with the next book. I will admit….I CAN’T WAIT!!! The Runaway Series will capture you heart and leave you wondering what is in store for each of our runaways in their journey to finding a place to call home!! Add Quarter Miles to your reading list today!!

 

 

 

EXCERPT

 

“Why did you turn the air on?” she asked, looking above us to the open air.
“I’m hot.” Desperate. What would it take for her to put on a goddamn sweater? “Are you wearing sunscreen?”
“Uh, no.” She gave me a sideways glance. “Why?”
“You’re going to get burned.” Get the sweater, Kat. You know you want to.
“I’ll be fine. At the next gas station, I’ll grab a bottle for us.”
Us. Why did that word sound so serious? It wasn’t the intimate kind of us. There was no us. Not in the couple sense of the word. Did I want there to be an us?
Yes.
That lightning-fast internal response nearly had me slamming on the brakes, turning this car around and going back to Montana, where the world was normal.
Kat was my friend. My best friend. Roommate. Coworker. Pseudo sibling. There were days when I’d trade Easton for her permanently. Okay, any day. There were plenty of ways to label our relationship and us was not one.
I could not—would not—tear down the boundaries that nearly a decade and firm family reminders had put in place.
