Series: Run #1

Cassidy Christensen is running. Running from the mercenaries who killed her parents. Running from a scheming redhead intent on making her life miserable. Running from painful memories that sabotage her dreams of happiness. With two very tempting men competing for her attention, she hopes she’ll finally have someone to run to, but can she trust either of them? When secrets from her past threaten her family, Cassidy decides to stop running and fight for her future. A light-hearted suspense with a side of PG-rated romance, Dead Running will have you lacing up your running shoes and impatiently waiting for the sequel.

My Thoughts:

Dead Running had me hooked by the first page. I loved it!

Cassidy was 25, likeable, and easy for me to connect with. Her boy-crazy flirting cracked me up and reminded me of my high school and college years. I might have been a little boy-crazy back in my single days. 😉 There are some great side characters like her sister-in-law Raquel full of fun banter and 2 good looking guys interested in her.

One thing I found annoying was how Cassidy referred to so many characters at the beginning and beyond the beginning by nicknames like Dr. Tattoo, hot redhead, fine looking runner man. It was funny but a little annoying. It didn’t ruining the read for me or anything. Some things I saw coming but was still surprised at how things went down. I really loved this read!

Full of intrigue and mystery I found myself quickly reading to find out what happened! Then I got the next 2 books (novellas) in the series to read even more!
