Running From Forever by Ashley Wilcox
Release: September 22, 2013
Age Group/Genre: Adult Contemporary Romance
Recent college graduate, Kayla Reynolds was ready to leave the university, sorority life behind. Leaving her boyfriend of over three years, she packed her bags and moved four hours south to the big city…New York City. Bright lights, streets that never sleep, and a business lifestyle that she yearned to have were all at her fingertips.
Kayla Reynolds was chasing her dream.
Determined and eager to make it in the corporate world, Kayla changed everything- her image, lifestyle, and outlook on life, putting her career first and her personal life second. That was until her first day, the first time she got a glimpse of Miles Blackwell. Corporate CEO and part owner of ETV, and not to mention, incredibly handsome, Miles Blackwell took Kayla by surprise, stealing her heart as he did.
But nothing had ever come that easy for Kayla. Life had always seemed to have a personal vendetta against her, stepping in when everything seemed too good to be true, reminding herself of whom she really was. It wasn’t until she met Merrick Drake that she realized when to stop; when running was no longer an option. For the first time in her life she had someone she could relate to; someone who wouldn’t judge- who saw the person she was inside. She and Merrick connected…on more levels than one.
When life was too much to handle, they ran.
But there was only one person that could make Kayla stop for good. Only one man that made her want to stay.
Would Kayla finally stop running or would it all be too much to handle?
"I'm just not a fairytale ending kind of girl and deep down I think you know that. I hope."Kayla is a runner, when thing gets tough she jets. Kayla just graduate college and want to be more than her past self. She also didn't
Another great book by Ashley Wilcox I've been keeping an eye on her Forever Series for some time now and I really enjoy her writing. One thing I love about her series is that its all stand alone so if you didn't read the other books its ok, you'll miss nothing.
"I was officially closing one door and opening the next. I wasn't sure who or what that next door was, but my past was shut."
I loved the book. I liked how this book had more than one point of view so I got to see what was going on in not only Kaylas mind but Miles and Merrick's as well. If I had to choose a favorite character it would be Merrick he was kind, supportive and was there for Kayla when she needed him no questions asked. I wanted to slap her sister (Wanna know why? Read the book.) I also wanted to hit Miles as well, I mean he was great at first and then I wanted to hit him. If I didn't get his point of view I would probably still hate him. Now I just slightly dislike him. I loved the twist that was in the book I didn't expect it, I mean it was probably predictable to others and I should've known but I loved that I was surprised. I loved that there was also that little bit of what happened to Merrick at the end. Can't wait to see what happened in that story.
Overall I loved the book and think you will too. Highly Recommend. 5 of 5 stars.
Some may consider me a jack of all trades, but I consider myself well rounded. I've waitressed, styled hair, answered phones and, most recently, worked full time as mom to my two beautiful little boys.
Then there was this book...
Everyone and their brother started talking about this book series titled Fifty Shades of Grey by EL James. I didn't really pay attention to the craze at first, since I wasn't a big reader- okay, I didn't read at all. But curiosity got the best of me, so I downloaded it to my kindle. I was immediately hooked. I read the whole series in three days. Yes, three books in three days.
I kept finding all these great books that I HAD to read (just ask my credit card!).
Then I started hearing voices. Voices that turned into stories; stories that were begging to get out of my head. I started writing them down on scraps of paper. Then I transferred them to my computer. Before I knew it, Planning on Forever was born.
The voices in my head are still talking, so I'm still writing.
