Blog Tour + ARC Review: ‘Dotted Lines’ by Devney Perry

Dotted Lines by Devney Perry is now live!

Runaway Series


Clara Saint-James is completing a journey started by an old friend. She’ll return a Cadillac to California, a place she’s avoided for more than a decade. But it’s time for closure and to put old ghosts to rest. And it’s time to find out if the feelings she’s cherished for the boy from her past are just fanciful memories–or if there’s a chance they are real.

Timing was never on her side, especially when it came to Karson Avery. The two of them lived in a junkyard as runaway teens, and though she wanted more than his friendship, he always belonged to another–until that one night when he was hers.

When Clara finds Karson living in a small, coastal town, she’s not surprised the beautiful boy from her past grew into a stunning man. His smile is as captivating as ever. His eyes have the same roguish glint. But timing is still working against her.

Clara must decide how far she’s willing to go to battle for Karson’s heart. Or if it’s time to let him go and surrender to the dotted lines that have always kept them apart.


4.5 ‘With you? Always’ Stars!

ARC provided via Valentine PR in exchange for an honest review.

I am a mess of feelings right now. It’s always hard to say goodbye to characters you have lived with for some time and the Runaway crew will sure be unforgettable to me. The premise of this series and the fact that is written by one of my favorite authors got me hooked from the very beginning and now we sadly have reached the beautiful conclusion. We’ve been waiting for Clara and Karson’s happy ending for what it seems like forever and I can now say it was the perfect end to this long road trip of love stories.

Dotted Lines is the fifth and final installment in Devney Perry’s Runaway series and it’s the last trip with the red Cadillac because it finally reaches his rightful owner: Karson Avery. Clara Saint-James (and her adorable son August) are the ones driving it to California and surprising Karson with it. But Clara is terrified of facing the feelings she has always had for Karson, especially since they shared their last days in the junkyard (twelve years ago) finally acting on their connection. Time is never on their side. Are their feelings still burning or is it too late to rekindle their intense relationship?

There was no person on earth who’d gotten me like she always had. She knew it had been my mountain to climb.
God, how I had missed her.

OH MY. What an epic ending Devney Perry has written for the Runaway crew! Everything we expected and more, she did it! The ending these amazing people deserved. But now let’s focus on Clara and Karson. Dotted Lines feels so different from the other stories because more than half of it happens in the past, while these two were together in the junkyard. I loved seeing their friendship grow and how that connection intensifies even more as time passes and it’s impossible for Clara and Karson not to act on it. I loved them together, I loved their relationship and it broke my heart when they went on their separate ways. Their chemistry was so passionate and when they finally reunite, it’s so obvious it’s still there with the same strength. And I have to say it’s even better because the adorable August is there. He is so freaking cute! I am so happy for the reunion of this couple and seeing them finally happy together. And that ending! My God. That epilogue was PERFECTION. Seeing them all together, it melted my heart!

One look at her and the world made sense.

Therefore, I am rating Dotted Lines with 4.5 STARS because it was the beautiful ending this couple deserved, together with the rest of the crew and finally happy in each other’s arms. Seeing this crew grow and finding their much-deserved happiness after so many sufferings, it was oh so worth it. The Runaway series has now a special place in my heart and I will never forget any of these characters. Devney Perry is one of my favorite romance authors and I cannot wait to see what is next in line from her. And if you still haven’t read this series, go and do it, trust me. Highly recommend! today on Amazon, Apple Books, Kobo, Barnes & Noble!
