Book Review: Runaways

Release Date: September 20

Runaways . . .
You’ve heard about kids running away, but do we ever truly know why they run?

Rae and Law had no choice. Forced to run when life let them down, when it was either leave or be subjected to an unimaginable fate.

Can they survive?
Two young people, completely alone on the streets with nothing but each other.
This is their story.

Can love win? 
Or will the big, bad world be even more cruel than what they had to face in their small hometown?

For Raelynn Sanders and Lawson Davis, anything is possible as long as they have each other.

Trigger Warning: this book deals with sensitive topics such as verbal and physical assault/intimidation. There is no rape, but some uncomfortable situations are mentioned and occur on page.

My Review

This newest offering is s bit of a departure from the steamy romances that I have recently been reading from this author. I did really like this book. Rae and Law's story is heartbreaking but at the same time sweet. They are kind of like the modern day Romeo and Juliet. 

The interactions between Rae and her stepfather were uncomfortable. There are warnings that come with this book and this is one that might trigger readers. This is not to say that this book should be avoided as nothing transpires too far or graphic details. 

This truly is a lovely story of first love and finding happiness. Here are a couple of my favorite passages:

"I'm starting to understand how Nash could think she's dangerous. Because she's wrecked me. Just not in the way Nash was talking about. She's ruined me for anyone else."

"One thing I've learned, I can get through anything in this world as long as I have Law by my side."
