Katherine Gates has been in love with Cash Greer since the moment he saved her life from a runaway goat. According to Cash, she’s the little sister he never had, the greatest roommate in the world and his favorite coworker. They’re friends—best friends.
In the dark days of her youth, it was her friendships that kept her alive and made life in a junkyard worth living. So she’s learned to shove her feelings for Cash down deep, even if that means ignoring eyes that shine brighter than the Montana summer sun and the smile that illuminates the snowiest winter day.
Except with every passing year, the denial takes its toll on her wounded heart until one day Katherine decides to take an impulsive road trip to the Oregon coast. Alone. That is, until Cash cons his way into the passenger seat.
The farther they travel, the harder it is to pretend. And when she confesses her feelings, she learns that Cash has some secrets of his own. Secrets that will either bond them together.
Or rip them apart.
Devney Perry knocks it out of the ball park once again – a tale of unrequited love seamlessly turning into friends – to lovers romance –it was another binge worthy read in this series of runaway teenagers and their connecting back to each other in adult life!
Quarter Miles had everything I didn’t know I was looking for – A runaway, Katherine who found not only a family at the age of 18, but also a job where she felt secure and then slowly fell in love with her best friend – oh dear it was gut wrenching and heartbreaking to read her insecurities, her fears and her strength, not just in herself but also in the fact that she will always land on her feet, no matter what.
So when she finally faces the fact that her best friend, Cash may never feel the same way about her – she decides to go on a road trip to hand over the car that started it all to another of the runaways –but what she didn’t expect was for Cash to hitch a ride for the road trip at the last moment.
She never could say no that charming handsome face, so she knows that this road trip will make her take some very hard decisions in order for her to move on with her life.
It was also amazing and heartwarming to see Cash slowly come to the realisation of EXACTLY what he feels for his best friend – and to finally stake his claim in the most alpha way possible (yet somehow never becoming overbearing – its a fine line and not many fictional men know how to travel it with ease!).
If you haven’t already picked up this series by Devney Perry – I promise you; you have no idea what you are missing out on – The Runaways deserve all the love in the world and it is your responsibility as reader, to make sure that this series and all of its wonderful characters are showered and drowning in the adulation!

|“Why did you turn the air on?” she asked, looking above us to the open air.
“I’m hot.” Desperate. What would it take for her to put on a goddamn sweater? “Are you wearing sunscreen?”
“Uh, no.” She gave me a sideways glance. “Why?”
“You’re going to get burned.” Get the sweater, Kat. You know you want to.
“I’ll be fine. At the next gas station, I’ll grab a bottle for us.”
Us. Why did that word sound so serious? It wasn’t the intimate kind of us. There was no us. Not in the couple sense of the word. Did I want there to be an us?
That lightning-fast internal response nearly had me slamming on the brakes, turning this car around and going back to Montana, where the world was normal.
Kat was my friend. My best friend. Roommate. Coworker. Pseudo sibling. There were days when I’d trade Easton for her permanently. Okay, any day. There were plenty of ways to label our relationship and us was not one.
I could not—would not—tear down the boundaries that nearly a decade and firm family reminders had put in place.
