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.
I Loved this book!!! Devney Perry never fails to deliver a book that I know I am going to absolutely love. This was such a fun read, and she not only gave us a book that had depth to it but also one that had sexual chemistry between our two main characters.
I love that it is a fast paced story but yet it still has that element of slow burn to it. Londyn knows how to runaway, it is what she has done in the past and it is what she is doing now. She is running away from Boston after her marriage failed, but also she is running toward a life with meaning. A home. She just has no idea that is what she is doing until she meets Brooks Cohen in the small town of Summers, West Virginia.
Brooks Cohen is living his life and he loves his hometown. He has never had an urge to leave until Londyn ends up broken down in town. She’s beautiful, and the connection between the two in unlike anything he has ever felt before, but she is leaving. She is adamant that she cannot stay, and Brooks is unable to just pack up his life and take off on the road with a woman he just met.
I think the only complaint I have is I wish the story was a little longer. However, Deveny did such a wonderful job of wrapping everything up beautifully without it feeling too rushed between Londyn and Brooks. The Epilogue was perfect too!!
“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.”
