One Hurricane. Two Strangers. No Rules.

Hannah Adamson was immune to relationships. Swearing men off long ago, she buried her painful reasons under her feisty independence and a passion for roller derby. Until she met Ed and was swept away by the tall, witty, sarcastically sexy best man who might just be the one to have the antidote for her runaway heart.

Ed Alcott wasn’t looking for love, especially not after a particularly nasty breakup left him with a shattered heart in desperate need of repair.

Taking shelter together when a hurricane bears down on Rum Cay, Hannah and Ed find they can't fight their growing attraction. It was supposed to be simple. Easy. A weekend of passion with no strings. But how do you forget the one who stripped away all your layers, and haunts your dreams?

Can Hannah keep the scattered pieces of her heart in check, or will the promise of Ed’s love be enough to mend them back together?
It’s official. Ed is my new favorite book boyfriend.
This story was romantic, with just enough steam to satisfy my naughty side. The chemistry between Ed and Hannah was obvious from the first second they laid eyes on each other and it only intensified from there on out. I loved the flirtatiousness that sparked every time they interacted, and I was glad to see both their walls come crumbling down as their relationship developed. It took a bit longer than expected, but I had hope that they’d find their way to happiness eventually.
This book wasn’t all hearts and roses. The darkness that haunted Hannah seeped into her life and polluted her desires, making it difficult for her to see how sweet and amazing Ed was, he on the other hand wasn’t quite as closed off, but he still shielded his heart because of the hurt he’d dealt with in the past. This made for plenty of hurdles, and it was just a matter of whether they were prepared to jump over them or not.
I loved that the authors highlighted a very serious and tragic matter through this story. I hope that anyone who has had to endure what some of these characters lived through will find the courage to remove themselves from the situation, and to know and believe in their self-worth.
A story about love, courage, healing and acceptance, this book was filled with hope and lifted my spirits. If you enjoyed Love, Always, you will fall head over heels for Runaway Heart.
