Recent college graduate, Kayla Reynolds was ready to leave the university, sorority life behind. Leaving her boyfriend of over three years, she packed her bags and moved four hours south to the big city…New York City. Bright lights, streets that never sleep, and a business lifestyle that she yearned to have were all at her fingertips.
Kayla Reynolds was chasing her dream.
Determined and eager to make it in the corporate world, Kayla changed everything- her image, lifestyle, and outlook on life, putting her career first and her personal life second. That was until her first day, the first time she got a glimpse of Miles Blackwell. Corporate CEO and part owner of ETV, and not to mention, incredibly handsome, Miles Blackwell took Kayla by surprise, stealing her heart as he did.
But nothing had ever come that easy for Kayla. Life had always seemed to have a personal vendetta against her, stepping in when everything seemed too good to be true, reminding herself of whom she really was. It wasn’t until she met Merrick Drake that she realized when to stop; when running was no longer an option. For the first time in her life she had someone she could relate to; someone who wouldn’t judge- who saw the person she was inside. She and Merrick connected…on more levels than one.
When life was too much to handle, they ran.
But there was only one person that could make Kayla stop for good. Only one man that made her want to stay.
Would Kayla finally stop running or would it all be too much to handle?
This is a feel good romance written from three different points of view, which i found great as we get a really great insight to the situation from all sides of the story. Im not sure why but i love to read a story from a guy’s POV and this book had two guy’s POV i was in heaven!
I found this book very relaxing easy to read and flew through it in a couple of hours with a couple of cups of coffee, very enjoyable start to my Sunday.
Kayla has always been a runner, when life gets to tough for her she runs to a new life to start over, its easier that way. So after he boyfriend of three years proposes to her she runs, runs to the bright lights of New York to start over, she’s not the fairytale ending kind of girl.
At Kayla’s new job she meets Miles Blackwell who is technically her boss as he part owns the firm where she works as the assistant to Connie, Miles’s sister. On a night out with the guys from the office one tipsy Tuesday Kayla meets Merrick, a bartender and all round great guy.
Both men change the way Kayla see’s life and maybe on of them will give her a reason to stop running.
I loved the relationship between the characters and the wonderful chemistry they had, each person had qualities that you found lovable, Ashley Wilcox makes you a a believer in her stories they are gripping and keep you engaged. The twist in this story crept upon me i was so not expecting that, the dirty creep!.
I totally fell in love with Merrick and cannot wait to read the spin off book that he is getting, he is such a lovable person everyone should be lucky enough to have the chance of a Merrick in there lives.
I thought the way that hero and heroine fell for each other within the week was great, not all love happens over months or years, so times it hits you like a truck in a matter of days. Life is different for each and everyone of us.
It was nice to see Kayla find her place in the world and stop running.
This book is just one of those feel good romances that make you smile, another great read in the Forever series from Ashley Wilcox.
