Review: Runaway Road (Runaway #1) by Devney Perry

Posted on

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.

EXCERPT
“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.”

MY REVIEW

Runway Road is the first book in the all new Runaway Series by Devney Perry. Runaway Road follows the story of Londyn & Brooks. Life hasn’t always been kind when it comes to Londyn. Londyn has always wanted a better life than the one she was given. At 16 years old, she ran away from home and her parents were too strung to care. Living on the run was anything but glamorous, but somewhere along the way, she found a new normal. She thought she found some where to lie her head permanently, only to have the carpet ripped out from her. This unexpected twist, left Londyn at a major crossroad. She no longer knows who she is or what she wants to do with her life. So, fresh off of her divorce, Londyn decides to take a road trip and try to find the freedom she desperately needs….

Runway Road is a quick and easy read. But, don’t let the length of this book fool you. It might be shorter than other books by this author, but make no mistake, this book packs a punch. Not only is the plot refreshing and intriguing, but the characters and their charm just make you want to breath in their story. You’ve got Londyn who has always made the most out of the cards life had dealt her. She’s no stranger to making tough choices and is hoping her road trip will provide her with some much needed answers. And then you’ve got Brooks. Brooks is the man! He’s sweet. He’s family oriented. He’s loyal and is looking for happiness just like everyone else. I loved how selfless he was and how he always put others ahead of him. Fate brought Londyn & Brooks together at just the right moment and I loved watching these two fall.

Runway Road is a heartwarming second chance romance. It’s about finding peace in the choices you make. It’s about finding your home and rediscovering the person you were destined to be. It’s a story about taking risks and putting your heart on the line. It is a story that is sure to capture your heart and leave you breathless for more. Runway Road kicks this series off to a terrific start. I’m super excited to see what adventure lies ahead for us next and I can’t wait for the next character’s story to be told.
