An Emotional Second Chance Enemies to Lovers Romance To Soothe Your Aching Soul <3 | Release Day Review: Wild Highway (Runaway #2) by Devney Perry

From USA Today Bestselling Author Devney Perry comes a small town, second chance romance.

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.

“These spontaneous decisions of the past few weeks suddenly made sense. They had purpose. They had meaning. They were to get me here, in this moment.
I was setting out to right a wrong. To find myself again.
On the wild highway.”

I don’t know how Ms. Perry does it; but she always finds a way to make sure that whenever I read her books, I will always end up impacted because of the characters, the story and the emotions she evokes in the books she writes!

Gemma Lane, one of the runaway kids (whose journey started in Runaway Road –  Read My Review) – is a successful business  woman; she has moved so far beyond from the kid who had to run away from a home that was unsafe; lived in a tent in a junkyard with other runaway kid but she still hasn’t left behind the insecurities, the fear and anxiety of the life she led.

But now, she realizes that while she has had left the poor part of her life behind; she still doesn’t seem to be that attached to her own company – considering the fact that she was ready to actually sell off the first chance to got. So she does; what anyone would have done in her place – she ended up contacting Londyn (of Runaway Road fame!0 and taking her car to one of their mutual friends. On the way, she makes a detour to find one of the other runaway kids, and her best friend who she left without a backward glance when she was young.

What she doesn’t know is that this journey would end up giving her all that she didn’t know she wanted and and so much more!

Wild Highway is an emotional read – told in dual PoVs – Gemma an the boy; now man Gemma once loved and left, Easton – it is a second chance romance that is the perfect balance between angst and romance and understanding of anxieties, fears and overcoming them.

Devney Perry’s books are the perfect pick for those times when you need to fall into a brilliantly written plot line, amazing characters that you can’t help root for and a story that you would read over and over again!

EXCERPT

I opened the door, a smile still on my face, and collided, headfirst, with a wall of muscle.
“Oh, sorry.” I looked up and my heart stopped.
The smell of leather and aftershave filled my nose. I looked up to see a pair of dark brown eyes hooded by long, onyx lashes. I took in the straight nose, the sharp jaw and strong chin. My gaze dropped to the full lips I’d tasted once, on a night eleven years ago.
I’d never seen a face as symmetrical and so beautifully masculine as Easton Greer’s.
Even when he scowled, like he was now, it was a wonder.
He’d gotten even more handsome. How was that possible? He’d transformed from a young man to just a man, man. Rugged and rough and sexy.
“Gemma.” My name came out as a growl in his deep voice and I tore my gaze away from his mouth, taking a step back.
“Hi,” I breathed, the air heavy and thick.
He took a step away, then another, his glare unwavering.
Easton cast his scowl over his shoulder and spotted the Cadillac. “That yours?”
“Yes.”
“You’re staying here.” Not a question. An accusation. If he had it his way, I’d be uninvited.
I lifted my chin. “Yes, I came to see Katherine.”
His jaw ticked. “I thought we’d gotten rid of you years ago.”
Ouch. I guess he was still pissed about that whole sex in his room and waking up to find me gone.
But, good or bad, he hadn’t forgotten me.
