Goodreads Summary:

“I knew you were running the first time I saw you…"

Devon didn’t have a game plan when she decided to leave St. Louis on a Chicago-bound train for the summer. Just a reason. 

One she couldn’t share with anyone. Not Hadley, her best friend from college, who lets her stay in the guest bedroom; no questions asked. Or Brennan, the bartender at the local restaurant they frequent, who she actively tries to avoid. Or Garrett, Hadley’s boyfriend, who befriends her when she has no one else to turn to.

"I just didn’t know what you were running from...."

Desperate to hide at all costs, Devon plunges into her new life in the city. Everyone around her starts to reveal sides of themselves Devon never expected. And just when she starts to get comfortable, her world flips upside down…

"...but I think all along you were running toward me."

4 lives.
All connected.
All with secrets that just keep following them.

What Made Me Swoon:

Swoon #1:

"His mouth stroked her bottom lip and opened her mouth.  She met him tentatively at first, and then wholly indulged in the feel of him.  Her senses intensified all at once.  The softness of his lips, the callouses on his hands touching her skin, his taut body pressing into her.  His scent clouded her mind, and she forced herself not to move too fast.  His fingers moved to knot in her long hair, and she moaned lightly into his mouth.  Being kissed this way was like tasting the first strawberry of the season-so sweet and way better than you ever remember.  (eARC Loc. 2952)

Swoon #2:

"You deserve to be with someone who makes you happy.  Someone who won't complicate your life.  Somebody who won't hurt you."  "Someone like you, " she said.  "Someone like me."  (eARC, Loc. 4322)

Swoon #3:

"You know what I'm going to do when you're feeling all better?  "What?"  she asked as his lips traveled up to her elbow.  I'm going to kiss away every bruise and every scar and every headache.  I'm going to kiss away every thought of heartache, he whispered, the kisses reaching her shoulder."  (eARC, Loc. 4485)
