Run to You by Rachel Gibson




There's nothing like fleeing Miami to ruin a girl's day.

Stella Leon's bar tending 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. Now Stella has no choice but to go along for the ride . . . and seduce
Beau's military-issue socks off . . .

The Marine Corps was Beau's escape from his old man's legacy of naval heroism and serial philandering, but no amount of training could prepare him for the day he looked in the mirror and saw his father staring back. The answer: swear off meaningless sex. Oh, and find a way to make Stella Leon quit being so damn hot . . .

Run To You continues the story from Rachel Gibson’s last ‘Lovett, Texas story Rescue Me the main characters from that book, Sadie Hollowell and Vince Haven. After her father’s death, Sadie has inherited his ranch, but does not realize until the reading of the will, that she has a sister that she never knew about. Vince has Blake, his friend from his SEAL days locate her whereabouts,with the help of his twin brother Beau. The twins find Stella Leon in Tampa, Florida; where she works as a bartender. Unlike Sadie, Stella has always known about her sister; but she assumed that Sadie wanted nothing to do with her just like their father who only provided financially for Stella. 

Beau decides that he needs to convince Stella into going to Texas to meet with her sister.
Stella does not want to go to the meeting ,because she feels that Sadie is interested in really having a relationship with her. Beau saves her from her boss’s unwanted advances by knocking her boss out, the problem is her now ex-boss is connected to the mob and he and his thugs are not going to forget Stella and her hero so easily.

Stella realizes that she needs a quick ticket out of town for her own safety, and Beau is her best shot at staying alive. He delivers her to the airport for a flight, but she has a panic attack when she realizes she is afraid to meet her sister and she is unable to get on the plane. He decides to drive her to Texas himself. What follows is a four day road trip that will bring them together in a very personal way.

In the end this was a quick, light summer read that didn't pack much of an emotional wallop but you will definitely enjoy reading Run To You, if you want an easy read.
