WILD HIGHWAY (Runaway #2)
Release Date: June 23rd
Purchase Details:

Gemma Lane built an empire. Not a small feat, considering her home as a teenager was a makeshift tent in a California junkyard. She’s dedicated her life to turning pennies into millions. She has power, fortune and prestige.

And she’s leaving it all behind.

Gemma is headed across the country in her best friend’s Cadillac when a detour in Montana reunites her with old acquaintances and a man who hasn’t changed. Easton Greer challenges her every word and tests her every limit because he doesn’t believe she’s really abandoned her riches. She ignores his snide remarks and muttered censure—until the day she’s ready to return to the wild highway, and Easton taunts her to stay.

She’ll prove to him she’s not just running back to her wealthy life, that she’s more than her money. She’ll unlock her guarded heart and hope that this time around, he’ll treasure the key.


Wild Highway is going to give you the small town romance feel, indulging in a unexpected road trip, and wanting to heal old wounds. This was the kind of read that will hit when you’re least expecting it and even though you will breeze the story in no time, these characters will have a lasting effect on you.

Gemma didn’t have the perfect childhood like some kids did. Looking back on it, some moments were filled with fear and having a sense of loss but through it all, she tried her best to get through it. Being on her own from the age of sixteen and not being sure what her future would look like, Emma made it her mission along with her three other friends to survive in what is sure to be a crazy world.


With luck on her side and a drive like no other, Emma became a very successful business woman and is now at the top of her game. But you know what they say about being at the top: it gets lonely. When she’s asked to do a favor by taking a road trip, Emma decides to use that time and not only self reflect on her life, but to make amends for what happened in the past with some friendships. But self discovery and rekindled friendships aren’t the only thing that’s going to happen when she lands on the family farm that meant so much to her in the past.

I will admit that I did not read the first book in this series and I feel like I didn’t even miss a step because it was a complete standalone. I really liked the flow of the story, the setting was perfect, and I couldn’t get enough of these characters despite me wanting to shake them a few times.

If you’re looking for a sexy heartfelt small town romance, then you definitely need to try this one.

I opened the door, a smile still on my face, and collided, headfirst, with a wall of muscle.
“Oh, sorry.” I looked up and my heart stopped.
The smell of leather and aftershave filled my nose. I looked up to see a pair of dark brown eyes hooded by long, onyx lashes. I took in the straight nose, the sharp jaw and strong chin. My gaze dropped to the full lips I’d tasted once, on a night eleven years ago.
I’d never seen a face as symmetrical and so beautifully masculine as Easton Greer’s.
Even when he scowled, like he was now, it was a wonder.
He’d gotten even more handsome. How was that possible? He’d transformed from a young man to just a man, man. Rugged and rough and sexy.
“Gemma.” My name came out as a growl in his deep voice and I tore my gaze away from his mouth, taking a step back.
“Hi,” I breathed, the air heavy and thick.
He took a step away, then another, his glare unwavering.
Easton cast his scowl over his shoulder and spotted the Cadillac. “That yours?”
“You’re staying here.” Not a question. An accusation. If he had it his way, I’d be uninvited.
I lifted my chin. “Yes, I came to see Katherine.”
His jaw ticked. “I thought we’d gotten rid of you years ago.”
Ouch. I guess he was still pissed about that whole sex in his room and waking up to find me gone.
But, good or bad, he hadn’t forgotten me.
