It’s got that small town, down home feel, but the pace of this story is anything but slow. Description…There's nothing like fleeing Miami to ruin a girl's day. Stella Leon's bartending gig was going fine until gorgeous ex-Marine Beau Junger decked her mob-connected boss, spirited her out of the city, and claimed that Stella's half-sister--the one with the perfect life--sent him.

The answer: swear off meaningless sex. Oh, and find a way to make Stella Leon quit being so damn hot.My review… I really enjoyed Run to You. For the record, I read it out of order and while I wasn’t lost at all, I do wish I had had the background stories so I could understand the players better. Beau is a great hero, in more ways than one. He’s got that … charisma… that magnetism that draws people to him while, at the same time, warning them off. He’s had it tough growing up, but the Marine’s toughened him up and made him take a good long look in the mirror and realize he’s not the man he could be. In fact, he’s destined to be the very last man on the planet he would want to be – his own father. Stella was fun, albeit at bit annoying at times. But to be fair, I tend to favor the heroes in my romance reads and get peeved at the heroines who don’t fall into line tout de suite. But that’s my problem and, in the end, I really did enjoy Stella’s spunk and her relationship with Beau. The bottom line… Rachel Gibson is a name I’ve seen around my friends’ reviews quite often, and I’m glad I finally gave her a try. I enjoyed the Lovett, Texas world she has created and look forward to reading more in the series! My thanks to Avon Books for providing me with a copy of this ARC.

    I love Gibson and her hockey boys. I even love her with her silly cheesy series, but I spent a lot of time with raised eyebrows while reading this one. There was a lot of really odd quotes. I don't know if they were meant to be sexy or funny, but there's a lot of comments that just came across as awkward. "For the record, I'm clean as a monk." "Me too." "I know." "How?" He was so annoying. "Are you a super secret spy and undercover gynecologist?" "My face was closer to your muffin than your gyneco I love Gibson and her hockey boys.

A guy can't be too careful what he puts in his mouth." While it's wise of him to double check, I felt like that was something I didn't need to know. I was also stopped in my reading tracks by the sentence: "I'm going to eat your little hot pocket" That's one of those things that is going to pop into my head every time I'm in the freezer aisle at the grocery store. I get that hot and pocket weren't capitalized, but that's where my mind went. I feel like I spent more times feeling awkward than into the book. It won't stop me from reading Gibson, but I had been excited going into this book and was left with an ehh.

    While second in a series, the first seems kind of inconsequential (and way short). Also, I don't recognize any of those names, so I'm thinking they're likely only tangentially related? This story had some stand-out moments and leads I really liked, though the theory was often better than the reality. Stella turned out way better than I expected up front. She's a bit old to still be finding her way in life (28) so the initial assumption is that she's a flake—an assumption that isn't helped by her While second in a series, the first seems kind of inconsequential (and way short). Also, I don't recognize any of those names, so I'm thinking they're likely only tangentially related? This story had some stand-out moments and leads I really liked, though the theory was often better than the reality. Stella turned out way better than I expected up front. She's a bit old to still be finding her way in life (28) so the initial assumption is that she's a flake—an assumption that isn't helped by her being a bartender in a Miami glitterbar. It takes a while to figure out (though not spoiler timeframe) that she has been directionless but not really flaky. Yeah, she isn't sure what and where she wants to end up, but she's taking the very reasonable route of trying stuff out and learning what she's good at vs. what she likes doing. I liked that about her and I particularly liked that she eventually takes setbacks in stride and comes out stronger. Beau is less of a win, though I like the framework. He's the one where the theory (big, strong, capable Marine at the top of his form) doesn't quite play out in reality. Yes, he is all those things, but he's also pretty out-to-sea much of the time and he's emotionally constipated enough to give him a rougher road than if he'd just let himself care. I wanted to warm to him more than I did is all I'm saying. And not least because his constipation meant pain for Stella and that sucked more than a little. That said, I enjoyed their story and the banter was often fun. Add a couple laugh-out-loud moments and this is a 3½ that I'll round to four. A note about Steamy: Stella has an interesting take on sex that makes her technically a virgin (explicitly saving herself for love and marriage) though she pushes that definition enough that I'm counting all three explicit sex scenes as full-on sex scenes. And no, I'm not going to spoil how the technicality plays out. It's the middle of my steam tolerance, at any rate. After consideration, I'd just as soon that the whole technicality thing hadn't been a part of the story. It was part of the theory/reality split where it sounds good in framework form but it plays out about like any other romance that has explicit sex.

    Sadly, I am very torn, I am really not sure how to rate Run To You. I am a HUGE fan of Rachel's, heck I own 90% of her books. Just not sure if I am liking the new style of story telling, she has taken on. Run to you felt as though it was missing something, I'm not sure what though. I know that may not be very helpful for those looking to see if they should read this book or not, and for that I am sorry. Run To You left me missing and craving the older writings of Rachel. What I loved: * Beau! Ha Sadly, I am very torn, I am really not sure how to rate Run To You. I am a HUGE fan of Rachel's, heck I own 90% of her books. Just not sure if I am liking the new style of story telling, she has taken on. Run to you felt as though it was missing something, I'm not sure what though. I know that may not be very helpful for those looking to see if they should read this book or not, and for that I am sorry. Run To You left me missing and craving the older writings of Rachel. What I loved: * Beau! Hands down Beau ruled this story. LOVED him to death. I love a strong silent type. Beau's best feature was the fact that he didn't have to say a lot to get his point across, but when he did I found myself cracking up and giggling like crazy. This bad boy always had a witty come back. I couldn't eat his dialogue up fast enough, and for me, I wish there had been more. *Stella was a quirky fun heroine. She was laced with sassiness and uncertainty. I can't think of a moment in the book where I didn't like her or felt as though she wasn't relatable. On an individual level I adored her, and I think she brought a lot to the table when it came to offering Beau connectable love interest. I enjoyed the fact that while she was uncertain, she wasn't so beaten down that Beau had to build up her entire self-esteem, she just need an added push and to know someone had her back. * I know a few readers struggled with the lack of actual conversation between Stella and Beau, (a good chunk of their interaction were inner musings) surprisingly this worked for me. Mainly due to the main characters, as I said Beau was a man of few words. So if Rachel had him carrying on and on I don't think it would have fit his character very well. I really enjoyed the mixed POV's between them. It's always interesting to see romance blossoming from a man's inner workings. * The sex scenes for the most part were up to par and hot as hell. There was no doubt once Beau decided to make his move, that he was sex on legs! Holy hell was that man creative with making "no penetration" intriguing and captivating. What I struggled with: * The sex talk. This was my biggest issue. I am not saying this to attack the author or her work (just not quite sure how else to explain it), but it sometimes resembled a cheesy 70's porn film. Which surprised the heck out of me, I kept thinking there was no way Rachel Gibson wrote this. I have never ever come across one of her males and their dirty talk and been disappointed. Moreover, I have NEVER once skimmed a Rachel Gibson book until now. I am going to provide a couple examples, for those of you who are avid Rachel Gibson fans I think you'll get what I am trying to say. Example 1: "And, I'm going to eat your little hot pocket..." What?! Who in the heck talks like that in real life? My children eat Hot Pockets for lunch. Yeah definitely not something I want to picture associated with my vagina. Example 2: And, then we had this one... "My face was closer to your muffin than your gynecologist." Really?! I don't know about other woman but for me talk like this just. does. not. work. No lie, it takes me right out of the scene and leaves me skimming any other future scenes. * I really needed a bit more development regarding the characters AND the plot, not sure if I wasn't quite feeling it because I didn't read the first book in this series, but Run To You just didn't hold the same appeal with character chemistry as her previous couples. These two just didn't do it for me. As fun fast friends with benefits, yes, but as soul mates not so much. Again, I just can't quite put my finger on exactly what it was that was missing, as the couple individually had great dialogue, wit, and gravity that pulled you towards them. I just know for my own personal pleasure and enjoyment I needed more oomph; I needed back the old recipe Rachel uses to create her world of characters that I can get lost in and lose time. When it came to the plot well let’s just say it had a few potential gripping plot lines that should have glued me to my seat, but those just kind of fell flat since they didn't really take off and go anywhere. Honestly, it wrapped up way to nicely, without any real drama or angst. To many questions left unanswered, leaving me unfulfilled at the end. Overall, I enjoyed this book. It was a quick read, and often times funny. Definitely not a favorite or one I would go to back to as a comfort read. If you are a Rachel Gibson fan, I would definitely recommend it, as it isn't a bad book. However, if you are a first time reader of hers, I would suggest maybe holding off on Run To You. Maybe try out some of her previous books; such as her Chinooks Hockey team (my favorite out of this series is Rob and Kate from The Trouble With Valentine's Day) or Writer Friends (my favorite from this one is Lucy & Quinn from Sex, Lies, and Online Dating) series. Thank you, edelweiss and Avon, for the opportunity to read and review an ARC of Run to You in exchange for my honest opinion.

Bookblog 3.5 Run To You is the sequel to Rescue Me, where after Sadie Hollowell’s father died, she learned that she has an illegitimate half-sister. Sadie wants to make things right, and at least meet her sister, so she has her fiancé hire an old ex-military buddy to find her. Blake gives his twin brother Beau the details. That’s where this story picks up. Stella, or Estella Immaculata Leon-Hollowell, has always known about her sister, but she just assumed Sadie wanted nothing to do with her, just like their father. But she was wrong, and Beau tried to show that to her, and let her know that her sister just wants to meet her, anything else is between the two of them. Stella, though, likes bartending in the crappy dive bar, and though she won’t admit it, she is secretly afraid. What if Sadie meets her and doesn’t like her? But things spiral out of her hands as Beau decks her boss for getting handsy with her. Her boss has mob connections, and he is pissed. One thing leads to another, and Beau is driving Stella to see her sister. This romance was. . .interesting. The sense of humor was there, but I had a hard time believing Stella was a virgin at 28 (because of the way it was written, not because I don't believe there are 28 year old virgins out there). I felt like it came out of nowhere. Then 40 year old Beau is a born again virgin, tired of his man-slut ways, and waiting until he falls in love. I liked the banter, but the main plot was originally keeping her safe from the mob, but that sort of went away, and the whole plot was their sexual tension. It was good, and I liked it and all, but parts of it were silly and unbelievable. ***ARC courtesy of Avon Addicts

Run To You was what I would term as an ok read, it didn’t blow me away but I didn’t hate it either, the cover is totally misleading seeing as Beau is blond haired, grey eyed and ripped, and Stella is a olive skinned Latina, but hey ho I can live with that.

Things went a bit south when it comes to light that Stella is a (view spoiler)[28 year old virgin (hide spoiler)] . But I decided to carry on as; in the main I was still enjoying it, especially as I love a book with a “Road Trip” theme. Sadly as the book progressed, my annoyance with Stella increased, and it was actually pretty obvious that there is a ten year age gap between the two of them by her behaviour and reaction to things... Rather than swear Stellla says - Holy frijole guacamole... A LOT, which again got really annoying as the story progressed, especially when it was used in the bedroom. Beau, well he is a different story altogether, and is what kept me reading too the end. I absolutely loved him, a blunt, straight-to-the-point, sexy ex-Marine. I love a guy who although is ornery and difficult to get along with, has a soft and squishy centre and that is Beau to a Tee! Oh and he has a twin *swoon*. The language used at times really didn’t seem fitting for the character we are led to think of Beau as, and if I am honest I can’t really see any guy using the words “Muffin” or “Hot Pocket” in any context, let alone sexually. This is the fourth book in the Lovett, Texas Series, and my first Rachel Gibson book, would I read another book from this author...Yes, but I don't think it would jump to the top of my TBR on its release day, more of a filler when I am undecided as to what I want to read next.

    This is the first book I have read by this author. It was ok and likeable. I liked the characters and the humor. What it lacked for me was substance. There was very little of a plot. I won't say I will never read her again. I will probably give her another chance sometime in the near future.

I wanted to like that it wasn't insta-love, however the big HEA happened after knowing each other 8 days and then a 5 day separation. So it was insta-love. I never bought the he even liked her all that much, let alone forever love. I think he was just horny because he'd gone too long without sex. Darn. Guess I'll wait for RG's next book and hope for better. All that being said, I still maintain that RG is a contemporary romance queen. Her ok book is a lot better and more fun than a lot of other junk out there.

    Rachel Gibson is one of the contemporary romance authors who I read religiously. She is maybe not one of my favorites but she is a good author. I don't know what happened in this book. For me, it was actually a "Did not Finish." I gave it a hundred pages. Didn't like Stella (whiny, annoying), didn't like Beau (stoic, but not in a good way) and couldn't figure out why I was still reading the book. This is the point where I usually flip to the end of the book and see if the ending is worth wading Rachel Gibson is one of the contemporary romance authors who I read religiously.

And the virginity thing? Thppppt. Not handled well. (hide spoiler)] I would so recommend not starting with this book if you're new to Miss Gibson. The Chinooks series is sooooo much better, especially See Jane Score. Will I keep reading Rachel Gibson? Of course. One bad book isn't going to put me off an author. I just may not read the rest connected to this series.

Stella being a 28 yr old virgin waiting for her perfect man and Beau being a 38 yr old celibate waiting for the right woman only hypes the sexual tension. I found this story LOL funny, I completely LOVED Stella's sense of humor even in the toughest situations.

    This is it. The end. I am done with Rachel Gibson. Her last few books have been pretty bad, but this one just capped them all. Beau and Stella meet, dislike each other, have sex, decide that they are soul mates. In eight days. Stella has been a "virgin" for 28 years, deciding to save herself for "the one".

Beau himself is celibate at the moment, as he is tired of meaningless hook-ups. This state of affairs (pun not intended) doesn't last long, as they meet, then greet - in a manner of speaking. The rest of the plot is as thin as cellophane. Stella's sister, Beau's brother, the Russian mafia, Miami thugs, and the entire population of Lovett make brief appearances here and there, but leave no lasting impression. A waste.

    A bit short, especially However this worked well as a short light and heartwarming romance. The whole story took place over about 2 weeks, however I was quite convinced by Stella and Beau's relationship. Other friends and family members' interference in their relationship just added a pinch of salt or rubbed the salt in where it might hurt. Both characters were really likable, their flaws realistic and their twisted sense of humour funny to me.

I read that book right after an awfully cheesy romance to try to find my mojo back and see whether Rachel Gibson, even though her latest books disappointed me and I stopped then putting her on my auto-buy list, was still better than other authors. She is and I had a much better time reading this book than many others. Back to auto-buy probably

    Reluctantly, I have to agree...disappointing... This wasn't my favorite book of Rachel's. I thought some of the story was a little redundant and over written, and the characters weren't all the believable... The book is an Ok read but not even close to her previous books :(

    Stella is working as a bartender in a Miami nightclub when a stranger saves her from her boss’s unwanted advances by knocking said boss out. The trouble is that her now ex-boss is connected to the mob and he and his goons aren’t prepared to forget Stella and her hero so easily. Ex- Marine Beau is sent by an old friend to find Stella to reunite her with her long lost sister, Sadie. Stella has known about her older sister her whole life; she has always known Sadie was the one her father loved, whil Stella is working as a bartender in a Miami nightclub when a stranger saves her from her boss’s unwanted advances by knocking said boss out. The trouble is that her now ex-boss is connected to the mob and he and his goons aren’t prepared to forget Stella and her hero so easily. Ex- Marine Beau is sent by an old friend to find Stella to reunite her with her long lost sister, Sadie. Stella has known about her older sister her whole life; she has always known Sadie was the one her father loved, while Stella was the one he ignored. Traveling from Miami to Lovett, Texas with the sexy Marine while she gathers her nerves turns out to be more than she bargained for. I practically adore everything Rachel Gibson writes and this book is lovable. It felt shorter than most of her books, of course that could be due to the fact that I couldn’t put it down and ended up reading it in one night. I liked the tough Beau and the awkward Stella. I liked how their views on life and love were very much the same even though they both have very dissimilar backgrounds. I liked the fact that they really got to know each other in the few days they were alone together in cars and hotel rooms. They learned to read each other fairly quickly and all of it was endearing. This book wasn’t the deepest of reads, but it was definitely satisfying. It kept me turning the pages long after my body begged for sleep and it has me yearning to read Blake’s story and catch up with Sadie and Stella and Lovett, Texas, quicker than I am sure Ms. Gibson can write. It was fast paced and tender hearted and left me smiling. Cherise Everhard, August 2013 Book provided by and reviewed for the Amazon Vine Program

    While this won't get into my top three Rachel Gibson books, Run to You was still a hot, sassy, exceptionally cute read. Beau Junger is a super-alpha hero but with enough smarts and humour to make him pretty darn adorable (and he has a certain skill in bed which will make most readers quiver uncontrollably...

Also it's all written with Gibson's fabulously fluid, funky voice. And I'm always happy to return to Lovett, Texas. The small town with the mostest (hunky men wise). I'm assuming that Beau's twin Blake is gonna have a story too which I'm now looking forward to big time. So why only four stars... I guess just occassionally I found the balance between internal thought and dialogue tipped into a slower pace than I'm used to from Gibson. During their road trip it felt like Stella and Beau were spending a little too much time thinking about their conflicts and not quite enough showing them. But this is a minor criticism - maybe I didn't devour this book at the breakneck speed of my Gibson favourites, but I did still devour it.

    This book was one of the worst books I've ever read. It was stupid. Just stupid. Instead of wasting your time reading it, spend some time re-reading some of her excellent books instead: See Jane Score, The Trouble with Valentines Day, I'm in no Mood For Love, Tangled Up In You, Not Another Bad Date. Heck almost any of her books except the last two and her Lola Carlisle book. This is killing me, she was my favorite author for years.

    The narration was great and the story was too. That is until it ended an hour too early. Lots of good build up – so much potential and then it all just ends. I felt like we had turned to abridged format all of a sudden. A B- for the content. An A- for Tanya Eby's narration. Up side? We finally get a top notch narrator who understands romance for a Gibson book!

    I really hate to say this, because I usually love Rachel Gibson’s books. I’ve been a bit disappointed by her last two books, but this was just awful in my opinion. I didn’t really care about either of the main characters, and I just didn’t get why they suddenly fell in love with each other. In my opinion, there was no slow development of feelings that grew stronger over time, no real relationship that was allowed to evolve, just two people suddenly declaring they love each other after eight days I really hate to say this, because I usually love Rachel Gibson’s books. I’ve been a bit disappointed by her last two books, but this was just awful in my opinion. I didn’t really care about either of the main characters, and I just didn’t get why they suddenly fell in love with each other. In my opinion, there was no slow development of feelings that grew stronger over time, no real relationship that was allowed to evolve, just two people suddenly declaring they love each other after eight days. And a lot of unnecessary drama. Stella and Beau have absolutely nothing in common. He’s a big bad former soldier who runs a security company. She’s currently working as a bartender. Her father got the nanny pregnant and then paid her off to stay away. Her sister (who apparently never knew about Stella until their father died) wants to contact her and sends Beau after her so they can meet. Stella, on the other hand, has always known about Sadie, and thinks her perfect sister just wanted nothing to do with her illegitimate half-sister. I can sympathize with her background to a certain extent, but her behavior just upset me most of the time. “You‘re fairly annoying … This can’t be new to you. Someone has to have told you that before.” That about sums up my feelings about Stella. We are repeatedly told she is hilarious, but that no one gets her jokes. The reason for that would be that she is not funny. In my opinion there is nothing funny about saying stuff like “I suppose I have been on the ranch. I was conceived there. Obviously, I was too young to remember that event. Thank God.” to complete strangers, or pretending not being able to swim and to be drowning just to get back at him for pushing her into a pool. Her favorite phrase seems to be “Holy frijole y freaking guacamole”, which I found extremely annoying the first time she said it, but it was just awkward to hear her say that in bed. “He hadn’t loved her. He’d spun her head and broken her heart and turned her life upside down. He’d made her love him, but he never loved her.” That’s Stella after they spent 3 nights together. I really didn’t buy the romance. At all. He drives her from Florida to Texas. The reason for that is pretty lame. (view spoiler)[He punched out her boss because he was harassing her. The boss has mob ties and thinks he was sent by the Russians. He sends his people after her. (That conflict is never resolved, by the way. The mobsters that chased her out of town are never mentioned again.) Beau saves her. Gives her a plane ticket to get rid of her, but just as she’s about to check in she remembers she hates flying. She runs off. Beau comes after her, offers to get her a bus ticket. She hates busses. So he drives her himself. (hide spoiler)] On the way, he suddenly realizes he’s attracted to her, despite the fact that she starts to annoy him the second she opens her mouth and thinks of her as “a colossal pain in the ass”. But he decides not to do anything about that because she’s “too young” for him (she’s 28, he’s ten years older), and he is currently being celibate until sex “means something” again. She repeatedly tells us that Beau is NOT her type, and the only reason she’s suddenly attracted to him is because he says that she’d let a “breathy moan” escape over dinner. That’s her big reason for suddenly wanting him. It just made no sense to me. (view spoiler)[ Also, the whole 28-year-old-virgin thing wasn’t handled all that well in my opinion. She says she’s not having sex until she found “the one”. Which I have no problem with. But apparently she has done just about anything save actual intercourse with her boyfriends. I really don’t see how she convinced herself she’s saving herself for “the man she would love forever”. It takes her four days for the first “I love you” during sex, eight until she actually believes it. After she then declares her undying love for him (after eight days, not a single real date, and knowing practically nothing about him), he thinks they should get married as soon as possible now that they have actually had intercourse, she gets mad because she thinks he’s just doing “the right thing”, and he, for a change, is the one who runs away. After five days apart, it suddenly hits him that he loves her, too. He runs after her again, says he loves her, asks her to marry her, and all is forgiven (hide spoiler)] . Oh and saying stuff like “I’m going to eat your little hot pocket” and “My face was closer to your muffin than your gynecologist”? Not very romantic or even sexy to me. Sorry.

I know very well the author, I have read her for the first time few years ago and I follow her ever since. I would not be very impartial in my review… I'll let you see through my comments, what is liable to suit you or not in this little story. The author gives us nearly a closed-door between our two heroes seeing that practically all the story can be summed up by a six-day road-trip between Stella and Beau. Indeed, Stella is Sadie’s half-sister (the heroine of teh second book) who learns by chance at her father’s death that she has a half sister of whom she did not suspect the existence, but the reverse isn't true. It does not matter: for Sadie, it is primordial to meet her. Stella, as to her, is torn apart between curiosity and jealousy toward this young woman she does not know and who had the chance of growing up with a father who always rejected her. Deep down, she is dead scared of not being loved by this new family. I liked Stella in her way. Full of doubt, she goes through life a bit lost, with no real knowledge about what to do with her hands, but always knowing how to get through thanks to casual works. When Beau finds her, she is a barmaid in a bar in Miami, and he is going to disrupt totally her life. On one hand because he knocks out Rocky, her boss who cooks up with the mafia, forcing her to leave the city, and on the other hand especially because he tells her about the famous half-sister’s existence. The circumstances of life will see to reunite them through this trip towards Texas. Beau is a pure Gisbonian’s hero. Very male, very strong, he is an ex-US Marine, converted in security. He is a hard guy, but we quickly feel a gentleman’s side which only asks to be expressed. I must say that to run away from his father’s model, from now on Beau forbids himself from having one-night stands. The next time he will make love to a woman, he will remember her name on the morrow, and he will have feelings for her. It is an adorable attitude I think. Particularly as Stella, as for her, raised in accordance with Spanish Catholic traditions, has decided to give her virginity to the man she will marry. We have to believe that at 28 years old, she is a virgin… She had intimate relationships …but not that kind. So… Why not. Beau is a bit more than he seems to be, and if his thoughts are quite mysterious to us, we understand quickly that he is horny as hell… and he lets himself being seduced by Stella without any resistance, let’s be clear! Hot scenes are well written even if Mme Gibson got us used to better. However it spices up the story nicely …even if I would have wanted more of them! Lol. Generally speaking, I admit that the author gives us here a really short little novel. I would have loved to better learn to know the characters, and attend more tender moments between them, or more complicity. There was also the possibility to have a little more adventure and suspense by giving a more present role to Ricky and his henchmen… but unfortunately, it was not the case. Of course, we do not have the time to get bored, and I am giving a special little price to the beautiful declaration of love from Beau. Stella gives way easily and quickly (even though she should have made him go through hell a bit more...) but how to resist to five feet height and a half of muscles and tenderness! You will have understood, I am a bit disappointed. So if I have a little word for the author, I would tell her to think about adding a bit more spice and adventure in her stories, otherwise, she’ll risk leaving behind some of her readers which would be a pity when we know she is more and more interested by Navy Seals. Mrs. Gibson has a real talent to create heroes we love, it will be necessary to create a story around them which would have us wishing to read it again and again… As it is the case for some books of her.

No matter how many books I’ve read, she’s my all-time favorite author and her book, Truly Madly Yours is my favorite book EVER! I’ve been dying to read Run To You since I saw the title on Goodreads and I’ve been counting down the days to the release. Unfortunately, this was one of the very, very, very rare books by her that let me down. (I’ve read them all, way more than once) It’s not that the story was bad…it’s more like I was expecting way more and compared to her other books, I wasn’t wowed. It looks like Rachel Gibson has traded hockey players for military men and I’m not complaining! (Although I still love those hockey guys) Run To You is a companion to Rachel’s latest book, Rescue Me. This time we meet Sadie’s long-lost sister, Stella. When Vince Haven convinces one of his friends, Beau Junger to find Stella and bring her to his fiance, Sadie, Beau was expecting a simple mission. What he wasn’t expecting was to punch Stella’s boss for manhandling her, who turns out to have mob connections. When his associates come after Stella the next day, Beau knows it’s up to him to get Stella out of there and personally make sure she arrives safely in Lovett, Texas. After being cooped up in his SUV for a few days, their walls start coming down and they starts to have feelings for each other. But Stella knows that Beau will take off once he dumps her in Texas with her sister and she’s not ready to risk her heart. Neither is he. When I first started this book, I was convinced that this book was for me. A hispanic MC and a mob related storyline? Score! But somewhere along the line, things started falling flat for me. First off, I wish we had more time for Stella and Beau to get to know each other before they start feelings things for each other. I think most of the book takes place in about a week? And while there was no insta-love, not exactly, I would have liked more time for them to get to know each other. I was so excited about the mob aspect in this book, and I kept expecting for this storyline to make an appearance later on in the book…but it was kind of just forgotten. I also didn’t think there was enough angst. The problem between Stella and Beau was just too…simple. She loved him, he didn’t want a relationship so they went their separate ways. Some time passes and they get back together and are already planning a future which I thought was a bit too much, considering they were never really boyfriend-girlfriend. Honestly, this is the part of the book that bothered me the most. I could have gotten over the other things and it would have still been a 4-star read, but this really bothered me. This wasn’t a bad book, not at all! And I enjoyed reading it, even though I had some issues with it. But compared to her other books, which I practically have on a pedestal, I wasn’t too impressed. Rachel Gibson is still my favorite authors and I will continue to read her books and re-read my favorites. I’m already looking forward to her next book and I hope I like it much more than I did this one. If you haven’t read a book by Rachel Gibson yet, I would recommend you start with the following, which are MUST-have for any romance lover: Truly Madly Yours, Tangled Up In You, Any Man of Mine, It Must Be Love, Nothing But Trouble, True Love and Other Disasters, Not Another Bad Date, I can go on but these are my top favorites! *** Read more of my reviews at: www.MostlyYABookObsessed.com

He locates Sadie’s sister down in Florida bartending in a dive. He figures it’s an easy enough job. Meet the sister, give her Sadie’s information, and leave.   Stella (Estella Immaculata Leon-Hollowell) Leon has always known about Sadie but figured Sadie didn’t want anything to do with her, just like their father. Beau tells Stella that Sadie just wants her to come to Lovett, TX  so they can get to know one another but Stella isn’t sure she’s ready to meet her long lost sister. When Stella inadvertently gets on the wrong side of her mob connected boss, she figures a trip to TX maybe just the thing for her. When Beau books her a flight, she lies and claims fear of heights so he’ll drive her and she won’t have to do this all alone. Suddenly, this easy job turns into four days and three nights with one red hot controlling ex Marine and the woman who’s determined to break that control one way or another.   I’ve always been a fan of Rachel Gibson’s romantic contemporaries. Normally her potent mixture of romance, humor, endearing characters, and hints of angst will have you laughing your way to the end. Unfortunately, this installment didn’t elicit much of a reaction either way. I didn’t feel the  zing between the our protagonists and the storyline was only mildly entertaining. Every aspect of the story from the characterization the main characters to the plot devices throwing them together felt scripted.   Beau is tactile and quiet, a man of few words. Stella is the opposite with her bubbly and inquisitive nature. Beau has decided to forgo his player ways and choose to remain celibate until he meets the woman he will marry. Stella, a virgin, feels the same way; she’s saving herself for marriage. Communication between them consists of snark and one liners while their actual feelings are verbalized internally. We never really get to know either one of them very well as individuals. Everything we learn about them feels manufactured in order to advance their relationship and the story. While I do understand this is the main goal of a book, it’s normally not so blatant.   The main conflicts, the mob fiasco and Stella’s trepidation at meeting her sister, aren’t actual problems at all. The mob storyline disappears and Sadie and Stella bond like two peas in a pod. No conflict or angst.  The romance focuses on our couple’s no sex rule so while they are creative in that department, it too felt like another plot device thrown in to up the tension. Even the must have miscommunication scene fell flat. The entire book is just too low key.   Vince, Sadie, and Beau’s brother Blake bring some humor to the table but not enough to fix the lack of sparkle I normally find when I read Gibson’s contemporaries. The ending comes quickly and plays out exactly as we knew it would. Ms. Gibson wraps up the main storyline and we are left a hint towards the hero of the next Lovett, TX adventure. All in all, an okay contemporary that gives what it promises…I just wished it had promised more.   Rating: C-

I have to confess that while I've heard great things about Rachel Gibson's books in the past, this is the first RG book I've read. I've just never had the time to check out her books and add them to my massive TBR mountain until now. But after reading Run to You, I'm definitely on the Rachel Gibson bandwagon and will be glomming her backlist asap! I really really enjoyed Run To You.

But after reading Run to You, I'm definitely on the Rachel Gibson bandwagon and will be glomming her backlist asap! I really really enjoyed Run To You. It was a fun, quick, sweet read with lots of humor, banter, fast paced plotting (a little over the top at some points but not excessively so), but lots of great character development and emotional depth as well. Stella and Beau were great characters that I came to care about and root for. I definitely recommend this book. (view spoiler)[At first glance, Run To You seems to be just an opposite attracts story. After all, you can't get two people more different than hard charging, Marine turned private security consultant Beau, and free spirit Stella who's moved from job to job and yearning for direction in her life. But it is in fact those difference that allow Beau and Stella to bring out the best in each other. Beau teaches Stella to focus, figure out and fight for what she wants, and Stella teaches him to lighten up a bit. :) I really liked and related to Stella. Due to her childhood with an absent and neglectful father, she's deathly afraid of meeting her half sister Sadie because of her fears of rejection and not measuring up. Her view on life is refreshing, if a bit off kilter from the rest of the world. I enjoyed how she and Sadie ended up bonding and connecting, and how she gained in strength and confidence throughout the course of the book. I enjoy reading about uptight characters like Beau because when they finally reach their breaking point, and let loose, whoa baby! :) That is definitely the case with Beau. He's a Marine, which means he's disciplined, takes his job seriously, and is a man of his word. So by god, he's going to take Stella to meet Sadie in Texas, no matter how crazy Stella drives him. I liked his chivalrous and honorable streak, when he came to Stella's rescue at the parking lot. It also comes through in how hard he struggled against his feelings for Stella because of the age difference between them, and he didn't want to take advantage of her. But most of all, he struggles with not wanting to turn into his father, hence his self-imposed celibacy streak, which just added another hilarious layer to the sexual frustration he feels around Stella. I feel in love with Beau as a hero because he's honorable, cares about his friends and family, and he always treated Stella with respect, even as they drove each other nuts. The relationship between Beau and Stella is definitely hot, but also fun and sexy. These are two people who don't want to like each other, but are drawn to each other despite themselves. They fight their attraction to each other for various reasons, but all the sparks that lead up to the bedroom scenes shows that the struggle is definitely futile. :) There is a great cast of secondary characters, including Beau's brother Blake, who I hope gets his own book soon! Rachel's writing reminds me a bit of SEP, so any fan of SEP would definitely enjoy this book, I think. (hide spoiler)]
