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.

My Rating: 5 stars

Runaway Road is sweet, sexy, uplifting, and unputdownable!

I am such a fan of Devney Perry!  Her writing is evocative, her stories are beautiful and emotional, and her characters win me over time and again.  I was so excited when I discovered the queen of small town romance set Runaway Road in West Virginia (hello, home state)!

This is a small town, contemporary romance with a little insta-love told in the dual POV of our leads, Londyn and Brooks.  It’s book one in the Runaway series but can be read as a standalone.  This story is really about letting go in order to find yourself; how sometimes running is the only way to discover where you belong.

Londyn’s life has been far from easy, but her experiences have shaped her into a strong, independent woman, despite her tendency to use running away as a bit of a security blanket!  AND I JUST LOVE HER SO MUCH!  Brooks made his life in rural West Virginia, and he is everything!  These two have loads of chemistry!  Their relationship actually moves pretty quickly, but the way the story is written gives it the effect of a slower burn.  I couldn’t get enough of them, and really, that’s my only “complaint” — I wish this book was longer!

The Epilogue set up the next book in this series, and I cannot wait to see what Devney gives us for Gemma’s story!

Overall, you’re nuts if you think I won’t recommend Runaway Road!  In fact, pick up this one then after you finish and adore it, hit up her backlist!

*Thanks to the author for providing me with an advanced copy of this book. Please note that it, in no way, had an effect on my opinion or review.
