ONE LITTLE LIE. A WHOLE LOTTA TROUBLE.
RUN TO YOU
Risking it All #1
Releasing Aug 30th, 2016
Moments after meeting the most gorgeous guy ever, Gabby Winters promptly gets stung by a zillion yellow jackets and falls-not gracefully-into a stream. Yup, Ethan Hunter is trouble with a capital "hot," and Gabby definitely needs to keep her distance. Except in the small town of Haven, there's nowhere to hide from Ethan's sexy, infectious grin . . . and all the residents are conspiring against her.
At the center of the town's matchmaking is Ethan's grandmother, who's convinced their relationship is a done deal. Rather than break her heart, Gabby and Ethan find themselves cornered into pretending to be falling in love. The problem: there's serious sizzling attraction between them. And if this charade continues, they won't fool just the entire town - they might fool themselves too . . .

When Ethan awoke, sunlight was streaming through his window, and based on the tent in his sheets, Gabby was still on his mind. He closed his eyes and started counting backward from fifty, his morning tradition to relieve the pressure so that he could leave the bedroom without being indecent in front of Gram.
His dick was just starting to relax when his phone pinged with an incoming text. Welcoming the distraction, he reached over and grabbed it off the nightstand.
The text was from Gabby. Thinking about you this morning and hoping that problem we talked about hasn’t gotten too hard to handle.
She’d inserted a little winking emoticon at the end, followed by a sunrise and a tree. Morning wood. And yep, that problem had just gotten really hard again.
Killing me. He texted back.
That bad, huh?
Oh yeah, it was bad. Getting worse by the second.
I’d be happy to help you with it if you want to stop by… This was followed by several colorful hearts.
His poor cock ached at the thought. But… No can do. Gotta take Gram to an appointment.
No kidding. Gotta go. Chatting with you is not helping the issue.
He thrust his phone back onto the bedside table and lay there, concentrating on the sounds of Gram moving around in the kitchen until his dick finally accepted defeat. Then he went down the hall and took a long, cold shower.
Run To You was such a sweet story, I feel into it quickly and didn't want to set it down.
Ethan's home and starting up a new business venture with his best friends, something he's been looking forward to for a while. He's happy and then he finds out his grandmother is sick, and she wants one thing before she dies, she wants to see him happy and taken care of. Ethan's not all about the romance, so his grand plan to show his happiness is to have the business up and running, but then fate in the form of a woman steps in.
Gabby came to the small town of Haven to recover from a bad relationship and to relax and decide what she wanted next in her life. She never expected to find herself with feelings for local hero, Ethan, nor agree to a ridiculous fake relationship with him. But that's where she ends up, but can things stay fake for long? Or will real feelings pop up between them.
Run To You was a fun read, it was full of moments and scenes that made me giggle, but also some emotional moments too. I really enjoyed watching as both Ethan and Gabby tried to keep up the portrayal of a "fake" relationship but those around them saw through it. Each of the characters in the book added to it in some way, from Ethan's grandmother, to his buisness partners and friends, Gabby, her ex, they all had a role to play and made the story move along seamlessly.
If you are looking for a sweet quick read with fun characters and a great story, look no further than Run to You. I'll be looking forward to more books in this series.
