It seemed like a good idea at the time. 

The trouble is, when you run from your problems, you often find out your biggest obstacle is along for the tripit's you! Reid Carrington realizes that when he finds Jennifer and recognizes the quiet desperation in her eyes. Can he save someone who doesn't want to be saved? Or like a lifeguard rescuing a swimmer, will she pull him down into the undertow in the end?

Recipes for Jennifer's Mango Salsa and Tilly's Bruschetta included. 

Purchase from Amazon currently $.99 for kindle this week!!!!

I received Run Run Runaway in return for an honest review as part of the tour hosted by Prism Book Tours. Jennifer ran away from home long ago with a deep dark secret she kept from everyone. She hasn’t seen or spoken to her parents or anyone from her past since she left and doesn’t plan to change anytime in the near future. When the one man from her past she hasn’t forgotten happens to get lucky and finds her he refuses to give up determined to bring her home to her parents. The only thing is Reid doesn’t know why she ran away just that he needs to bring her home to see her parents.

Why Jennifer can’t deny the attraction for Reid that has been there since she was a girl she also sense that he may have feelings for her. Every chance she things something might happen he pushes her away. While Jennifer debates seeing her parents she happens to confront her father but instead of happy to see her he tells her his wishes she had never come home. Reid knowing her mother would want to see her brings her back yet again. Only this time Jennifer is determined to prove to Reid she can be the wife he wants even if it means changing who she is and confronting her past.

Jennifer is one of those characters your heart goes out to, her life hasn’t been easy but she’s made the best of it. She’s one of those girls who lives on the edge but also works hard to get what she wants even if it is for a man she’s loved most of her life. I liked Reid for Jennifer right from the start he’s like the reserve guy with his life together who can rein in Jennifer. He’s also a good guy you can’t help falling for.

I’m a sucker for a clean romance she when I saw the tour for the Destiny Bay romances I knew I had to sign up right away. Run Run Runaway is the first installment in the series it’s about Jennifer and Reid’s we get to see each characters point of view which I enjoyed. The author has created a captivating clean romance that captures the heart as well as the imagination. The book is a quick read that I finished in one afternoon it was hard to put down I had to see how Jennifer’s story would play out. I love a good clean romance that has a great story that is well written that teens as well as adults will enjoy. This is my first book by the author but I’m excited to read the next installment in the Destiny Bay Series. I highly suggest if you’re looking for quick clean romance that you check out the Destiny Bay series.
