This week I am waiting on
Run Away With Me by Mila Gray
Publication Date: November 28th 2017
Emerson Lowe and popular ice-hockey player Jake McCallister have been best friends since third grade but just as their friendship starts to morph into something more, a terrible event occurs that heralds the end of innocence for both of them. Within a week, Jake’s living on the other side of the country and Emerson is left alone to pick up the pieces of her life in a small town determined to paint her as a liar.
Seven years on and Emerson is still living on the beautiful Pacific West island of Bainbridge, helping her family run their outdoor adventure company. The last thing she needs is Jake turning up, bringing with him old memories and opening up old wounds. But Jake—even better looking than Emerson remembered and on the cusp of a bright sporting future—seems determined to revive their friendship no matter how much Emerson tries to push him away and soon they’re in the midst of a passionate summer romance that neither of them wants to end.
But if they’re to have any kind of future, they’re first going to need to confront the past, a past that most people want to stay buried.
This book grabbed me the moment I saw the words “ice hockey.” Ice hockey is one of the only sports I actually follow and sports contemporary romances are my addiction. Whether or not this book actually involves ice hockey is another topic for discussion but this book also has that friends to lovers romance, a trope that I love. I’m intrigued by this terrible event that separates Emerson and Jake but I can’t wait to figure it out.
What’s your most anticipated book?
