REVIEW: Runaway Road by Devney Perry
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.

“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.”
Devney Perry can quite literally do no wrong when it comes to writing a swoony and heartfelt small town romance! The only disappointing thing about a Devney Perry book is that they end. Runaway Road is the story of Londyn McCormack and her path of self discovery and finding what truly makes her happy. After a devastating divorce where Londyn thought she found everything she’d always been looking for she runs away to find a lost friend and hopefully herself. Running away is Londyn’s default to fixing a problem, the way she controls the outcome of any situation but what she really needs is to find the person or situation that will stop her running away and make her run toward a future that she craves and deserves. Brooks Cohen might be one of my favourite male characters by Devney Perry! He was so sweet, loyal and super swoony! Exactly what Londyn needed and what she’d always been looking for. Londyn and Brooks have to learn to move beyond the past mistakes they’ve both made and the people they made them with in order to find a future for them both. I’m a sucker for a small town romance and even more of a sucker for Devney’s style of writing. With flawed yet real characters, palpable tension in every scene, intriguing storylines and perfect character and plot development I always find myself completely consumed by her words. I connect with every main character she writes and feel everything they do at every stage of the story. There were some interesting side characters in the start to the Runaway Series and I can’t wait to see what happens in Wild Highway!
“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 rose up and fused our mouths, giving him everything I had and trusting him with all my broken pieces.”
