Wild Highway by Devney Perry (Runaway #2) #bookreview #romance

Wild Highway

(Runaway #2)


Gemma Lane built an empire. Not a small feat, considering her home as a teenager was a makeshift tent in a California junkyard. She’s dedicated her life to turning pennies into millions. She has power, fortune and prestige.

And she’s leaving it all behind.

Gemma is headed across the country in her best friend’s Cadillac when a detour in Montana reunites her with old acquaintances and a man who hasn’t changed. Easton Greer challenges her every word and tests her every limit because he doesn’t believe she’s really abandoned her riches. She ignores his snide remarks and muttered censure—until the day she’s ready to return to the wild highway, and Easton taunts her to stay.

She’ll prove to him she’s not just running back to her wealthy life, that she’s more than her money. She’ll unlock her guarded heart and hope that this time around, he’ll treasure the key.

My Wild Highway Review . . .

I quite like this series and how it's set up, and the bridge that joins all the stories together. It is very uniquely done and I appreciate that. The series starts with a past that brought a group of people together and a Cadillac that turns into journey to find themselves and bring the Cadillac back to its rightful owner.

In Runaway Road we got Londyn's story with Gemma being in the background and Londyn's best friend. Londyn's journey ends where it should and now it's Gemma's turn to drive the Cadillac back to California.

On her way, Gemma takes a detour to right some wrongs but instead she finds a home and a place to belong.

Eleven years ago, Gemma left one her friends and someone who had her heart. She's back to apologize but not are all to forgive so easily.

"Because I thought you might have an opinion about what happened and you're the one who said he wished other people would consider his opinions. But hey, if I'm wrong and you just want to forget it ever happened and go back to treating me like shit beneath your boot, I'll stay out of your way until Christmas."

I liked Easton, but he had quite the chip on his shoulder when it came to Gemma. I liked their journey together. I adored all the Greers and also Katherine. It was a great story and I liked that Gemma and Easton could communicate when it needed and didn't let things fester for too long or make too many assumptions or drew out angst unnecessarily.

Both Easton and his brother Cash are a bit daft when it comes to women. Thankfully Easton got his head out of his ass when needed, now we have to wait to see if there is any hope for Cash. I can't wait for Quarter Miles to find out. July can't come soon enough.

I adore this author and this is another fantastic series. Can't wait for more.

4 Worth the journey thumbs up!

Dream Maker by Kristen Ashley (Dream Team #1) #bookreview #romance

Dream Maker

(Dream Team #1)


From the New York Times bestselling author of the Dream Man and Rock Chick series comes a brand new story about love, friendship, and the bonds of sisterhood.

Evie is a bonafide nerd and a hyper-intelligent chick who has worked her whole life to get what she wants. Growing up, she had no support from her family and has only ever been able to rely on herself. So when Evie decides she wants to earn her engineering degree, she realizes she needs to take an alternative path to get there. She takes a job dancing at Smithie's club thinking this would be a quick side gig, where she can make the money she needs. But with her lack of dancing skills and an alpha bad boy who becomes overly protective, Evie realizes this might not be as easy as she thought.

Daniel "Mag" Magnusson knows a thing or two about pain, but the mask he wears is excellent. No one can tell that this good-looking, quick-witted, and roguish guy has deep-seated issues. Mag puts on a funny-guy routine so he can hide his broken heart and PTSD. But when Evie dances her way into Mag's life, he realizes that he needs to come face-to-face with the demons of his past if he wants a future with her.

My Dream Maker Review . . .

I have always loved Kristen Ashley and she did not disappoint with this great story.   The Dream team is a spin off from the Dream Man series and also the Rock Chick series via Lottie.   The jumping point of this series is Quiet Man which is a novella from the Dream Man series.

We meet Daniel "Mag" Magnusson in Quiet Man but also hear the name Evie from that book.   Dream Maker starts with Lottie trying to set up Evie and Mag on a blind date.   

I loved Evie.  She was quirky and rad all the same time.  I love how instantly Mag fell for her.   As all of KA's alpha men, Mag gets caught up in situation that evolves Evie and he immediately is all in with protecting her and having her in his life.  

In Quiet Man we know that Mag had his heart broken which caused him to go a bit wild and never commit again but once he found Evie his heart started to mend.   I liked the closure we get with that story line here in Dream Maker. 

 Because this is a KA book we also get more of the KA world with the Rock Chicks and some boys from Chaos.   Super excited to see characters from other books.  Especially Tex.  How I missed Tex but we get to see him in all his glory.

"I only do deliveries to women whose lives are in danger!"  he bellowed what was clearly not a joke.  "Get your ass up here, you want a coffee."
Due to the fact that Evie's biological family sucks balls she ends up sucked in to a situation she can't get out of.   Though during this we also get to meet more of her co-workers whom Lottie has tried to fix up with Mo and Mag's workmates and friends.   I absolutely can't wait for more from this series and KA.

Evie was a super strong character though I could have done without her giggling.  I don't know why but giggling for me in books always lessens the strength of some characters for me.

"Well, if being tied to a chair but doing it breathing and without any broken bones is okay then yeah.  I'm okay," she said. 
I adored this story and now can't to follow up with listening to this story via audible.
