Book Summary


Moments after meeting the most gorgeous guy ever, Gabby Winters promptly gets stung by a zillion yellow jackets and falls-not gracefully-into a stream. Yup, Ethan Hunter is trouble with a capital “hot,” and Gabby definitely needs to keep her distance. Except in the small town of Haven, there’s nowhere to hide from Ethan’s sexy, infectious grin . . . and all the residents are conspiring against her.

At the center of the town’s matchmaking is Ethan’s grandmother, who’s convinced their relationship is a done deal. Rather than break her heart, Gabby and Ethan find themselves cornered into pretending to be falling in love. The problem: there’s serious sizzling attraction between them. And if this charade continues, they won’t fool just the entire town – they might fool themselves too . . .

My Thoughts

*ARC provided by Publisher in exchange for a fair and honest review*

Gabby Winters is doing her best to stand on her own two feet and Ethan Hunter’s protective instincts rub her the wrong way more than once, but Gabby enjoys Ethan’s company enough to spend more time with him, which eventually leads to her agreeing to a pretend relationship with him. But the more time they spend together, the less fake their relationship seems to be and that definitely brings both of them a fair bit of trouble and not a little bit of panic and fear.

Run to You is such a fantastic read! I read Rock With You, the prequel e-book to this series, a few weeks ago and absolutely loved it. But I have to say, I loved this book, the first full-length book in author Rachel Lacey’s Risking It All series, even more. Both Ethan and Gabby were fabulous characters in their own right, but I really loved their chemistry together and I enjoyed the heck out of their journey from pretend relationship to real relationship. Not only do they make a fun couple, but their scenes together were dynamic, interesting, and quite entertaining to read.

If you’re looking for a well-written, small town, pretend relationship romance, look no further than Run to You by Rachel Lacey. I enjoyed the heck out of the characters, the town, and the story, and I’m seriously looking forward to the next book in the series.

Final Analysis

An excellent read!

Book Excerpt

When Ethan awoke, sunlight was streaming through his window, and based on the tent in his sheets, Gabby was still on his mind. He closed his eyes and started counting backward from fifty, his morning tradition to relieve the pressure so that he could leave the bedroom without being indecent in front of Gram.

His dick was just starting to relax when his phone pinged with an incoming text. Welcoming the distraction, he reached over and grabbed it off the nightstand.

The text was from Gabby. Thinking about you this morning and hoping that problem we talked about hasn’t gotten too hard to handle.

She’d inserted a little winking emoticon at the end, followed by a sunrise and a tree. Morning wood. And yep, that problem had just gotten really hard again.

Killing me. He texted back.

That bad, huh?

Oh yeah, it was bad. Getting worse by the second.

I’d be happy to help you with it if you want to stop by… This was followed by several colorful hearts.

His poor cock ached at the thought. But… No can do. Gotta take Gram to an appointment.

Oh. Bummer.

No kidding. Gotta go. Chatting with you is not helping the issue.

He thrust his phone back onto the bedside table and lay there, concentrating on the sounds of Gram moving around in the kitchen until his dick finally accepted defeat. Then he went down the hall and took a long, cold shower.
