Could rescuing a runaway bride be the detour I never knew I needed?
I had a plan. But then, my cross-country road trip to my new duty station started with me getting dumped. Two seconds later, I got roped into bringing a family friend’s niece, Nikki, and her teenage daughter on the road with me.
To make matters worse, I’m aiding Nikki’s escape from her own wedding. The last thing I need after getting ditched by one flighty woman is to be stuck in the car with another one. Especially one who thinks I’m grumpy and rigid and too obsessed with keeping on schedule.
But despite the ball-of-sunshine act she’s putting on for her kid’s sake, there’s more to this story. And when I finally get it out of her, I realize this detour from my perfectly planned road trip is even more complicated than I feared.
And now, no matter what it costs me, I’ll stop at nothing to protect them.
Amazing of course! I can’t believe that this series has come to an end, but this was a wonderful end to this lovely series. The Runaway is the sixth and final book in Jess Mastorakos’ Brides of Beaufort series. I have been getting more and more excited for this book and it was even better than I had hoped! I read it in one day!
Nikki had a lot of things to work through but she was so still strong and considerate. Nikki had her daughter to consider and she was just trying her best. I loved how Nikki tried to see the best of things but how she could be herself with Nate. Nikki had to learn to let others in and to fight for what she wanted.
Nate was a grump but he was a sweetheart on the inside. He was trying to work through the break up of his on again off again girlfriend, never expecting a road trip to change his life. I really liked Nate and his character. He was kind and considerate and he did his best to help Nikki and Marigold. Nate had to learn to believe that things could get better.
Nikki and Nate were such a cute couple together. They really balanced each other out and helped the other person be better. I really liked their relationship and reading about them falling in love. It was fun to read about the progression of their relationship. Marigold was a lot of fun! I adored her relationship with Nate. He was just so sweet with her.
Let me say, I was also so excited to see some old characters. There were some awesome scenes with the characters and I loved it! I also saw hints of a new series. The Runaway needs to be on your TBR, I could not recommend it enough! The Runaway is a clean contemporary romance with a grumpy and sunshine trope
