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.

A new small town series that will give you all those romance feels. I adored this book by Devney Perry and already know that I'm going to be a fan of this series. From the get go, I knew that I loved the female heroine in this. I was instantly a "friend" wishing for an HEA for her. I'm also a huge fan of small town romances, so when Londyn finds herself broken down and stranded in a small town I settled in for night knowing I would read this book in one sitting. Enter Brooks Cohen, ALL MAN but he's the type of man that would make you feel safe just by standing close to you. He's got his own story and once I found out what that was my feelings for him intensified. While the relationship between Brooks and Londyn is a slow burn, it's still gave me all those feelings of giddiness. Londyn's just passing through and I was anxious at times to see just what would happen as these two seem to gravitate toward each other. Each interaction you could feel their feelings grow toward another. I couldn't help but wait with bated breath to see just how things would end up. If you love a small town romance with just a little bit of angst then definitely read this book. It's one of those heartwarming feel good reads that you can just sink into.
“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.”
