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.



4.5 ‘I feel it. Deep.’ Stars!

ARC provided by the author in exchange for an honest review.

Well, you know you have read a good book when you literally devour it in one afternoon! Devney Perry has been teasing us about this new series and the premise of these books sounded so good. I am happy to say she did not disappoint with the first installment! In Runaway Road we start getting to know six kids (now adults) who run away from home and share a bond after suffering difficult childhoods. This is the first story.

So, Runaway Road is, as I said, Devney’s new release and it’s the first book in her new Runaway series focused on six people searching for freedom and love. This is Londyn McCormack’s story. She is recently divorced and she needs to find herself again after losing who she was after getting married to a wealthy older man. She decides to leave everything behind and road trip to California to find her childhood junkyard friends. But a flat tire will chance her journey forever, especially after she meets Brooks Cohen. Will she run away again?

I was running away to find peace. To find the life I needed deep in my soul. To find myself again. 

I am a sucker for Devney Perry’s stories. I fell in love with her writing a while ago and I was so excited for this new series. Of course, Devney did not fail and managed to make me fall in love with these new characters in a heartbeat. Londyn is finding herself again and it was beautiful to read that. She is a strong woman and her experience in this West Virginia small town changes her life forever. That together with meeting swoony, sweet Brooks. Gah! Devney surely knows how to create an outstanding hero!

“Don’t forget me,” I whispered. I’d been forgotten by too many people. I couldn’t bear the idea of Brooks forgetting me too.
“I’ll remember you until the end, Londyn.” Brooks ran his knuckles along my cheek, leaving a trail of sparks on my skin. “Until the end.”

I loved Brooks, how protective and caring he is. The man is just lovable from head to toe! I loved the slow burn chemistry between him and Londyn, the high emotions and all their moments together. The romanticism is high in Runaway Road and I loved it! These characters are so unique and I loved every single one. And this couple, of course! The chemistry between them was to die for and that mixed with the feels, the secondary characters and that bit of drama, made this book a wonderful read for me.

The next time she wanted to leave and find a new adventure, she’d have company.
We’d drive that runaway road together.

Therefore, I am rating Runaway Road with 4.5 STARS because it was the best way to start the Runaway series, perfect to leave you hungry for more of these characters and their journey’s to love and happiness. I loved the slow burn, the sweetness and this amazing couple. Londyn and Brooks are so adorable together and I cannot wait to read the rest of the stories after getting to know the other runaways. Gemma is next and I need her book now!


“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.”
