Review ~ Running from Forever ~ Ashley Wilcox
***This book is a spin-off of Waiting on Forever with no prior books needed to be read before it***
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?
Running From Forever is book 5 in Ashley Wilcox's Forever Series but can be read as a stand alone, I haven't read any of the previous books and it did not hinder it one bit. I felt that towards the end it was a little rushed, I would have loved to see Kayla make Miles work harder for their relationship but it was still a fantastic whirl wind romance for a young woman in a new city and a wealthy man who'd never been in love before. The twist in the book is great and I barely saw it coming, that's all I'm going to say about that so as not to ruin it. Now on to the bartender, Merrick is an amazing person and personally I wish I had friends more like him, he's such a sweet, kind and caring person everyone needs a Merrick in their life though. What I did love was how Ashley Wilcox ended the book, it was very different to any other book ending, she touched on Merrick's personal life in the last part and it left his story open to a follow up, I can't wait until his story is released as I kind of fell for Merrick more than Miles (I know thats not supposed to happen.. ooops). Loved it! 4.5 Stars
