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.
If you like small town romances, Runaway Road is for you. Londyn left the big city, and broken dreams/marriage behind her. On a road trip to the other side of the country, a flat tire puts a dent in her plans. Luckily the nearest town has one handsome mechanic to help her out.
What was supposed to be a short pit stop, quickly turns into romantic picnics by the lake, some sweet kissing, and maybe even more. The build up, and anticipation is real. These two take their time, and it’s impossible not to enjoy every second of it.
The secondary characters stay quite in the background, which I found a bit of a shame, because I do love cooky, meddling neighbours/friends/family.
Runaway Road is a fun read, and quite on the lighter side from Devney Perry. Still I know there will be more books, and I will definitely be reading them.
