Derek and Nia have major chemistry and they both have secrets, with Nia hiding her past and Derek helping a friend. They can’t deny the attraction they have and after trying to fight it Nia decides to take a chance on the hot Hollywood movie star.
Although Derek and Nia have their ups and downs, Nia’s friend encourage her that what they see between the two of them is worth fighting for. They have to work through a lot to make it work, misunderstanding, the press, and the past returning the present.
Although, Nia is a bit controlling at times and doesn’t like surprises, and Derek is continually surprising her throughout the story, the last surprise Derek gives Nia, leaves her nearly speechless.
Can wait to see what happens next with Derek and Nia.
Reviewed by Tracey Lou Parker for Kindle Friends Forever.
Running Away To Home is Rosemary Willhide's début novel and the first book in a trilogy. And she did herself proud!
Nia Kelly. A twenty-four year old fitness instructor who teaches spin classes at an exclusive sports club in the city that never sleeps, Las Vegas, has a bundle of secrets. Secrets that she is afraid to tell, a past she’d rather forget. With the help of her best friend, Julia, she's remained safe and secure from what she had left behind.
Enter handsome Derek Pierce. Actor, heart-throb to many screaming women and vampire in a prime time TV series. An all-round nice guy. Derek has moved to Vegas to chill out between movies and breaks in between filming his show. One day he strolls into the club to have a closed class with Nia which literally puts her into a spin (no pun intended)! As they get to know each other, the attraction between them is quite clear, the flirty glances and touches affirm that. Nia knows that being in a relationship with Derek could bring her past back to haunt her. A chance she is willing to take as she has fallen irrevocably in love with Derek. And the feeling is mutual.
If there’s going to be any future for them, she needs to reveal what she has hidden away. Due to unforeseen circumstances, she has to though. Needless to say, both Derek and Nia come face to face with what she's been running away from.
The storyline was great and I enjoyed it immensely. The sex scenes were hot; however, I did have to laugh at some of the ad libs included in the authors writings. I'm not used to hearing earlobes being called "Spongy Treasures" or hitting the "Twat Spot" This I had to Google! There is also a lot to be said about the editing of this book, but we cannot hold that against the author.
I'm looking forward to book two as I would like to see what happens between the two protagonists.
This is the first book of this author’s that I have read and it won’t be the last. I have really enjoyed this first installment into Nia and Derek’s life and romance and cannot wait to find out what happens next.
Nia Kelly has been living in Las Vegas for a year, residing in her best friend’s guesthouse and instructing spin classes at the local Country Club House. She clearly has a past that she is running from but doesn’t let it affect her unless it comes to men. She has avoided all contact with men until now…
Enter Derek Pierce. He’s the main actor in First Bite, Nia’s favourite TV show and he just so happens to walk into her spin class. With his dark blonde hair, ice blue eyes and sex on legs body who can resist.
There is an instant attraction between the two which neither can deny but Nia shy’s away from it. She knows it’s too risky to be with a man, let alone one so much in the public eye. But just how much longer can she deny her feelings for Derek and how much danger could she possibly be in if she chooses to live her life instead of just plodding along?!
As I said I really enjoyed this book. The writing is witty and makes you laugh out loud as well as feel for the characters. Nia is a relatable character and her best friend Julia just has a way with words that will also make you crack up. Everybody needs a Julia in their lives. Derek is every bit the alpha male that makes any woman go week at the knees (me included with his swoon worthy words). The story is well paced and the sex scenes are hawt!! A fan is required ladies (and possibly gents!).
Well done Rosemary and bring on the next book.
Derek and Nia' s story had me from the start I love how this book unfolds !!
I couldn't put this book down !!!
Nia has issues and not without reason !! She is a very strong woman but doubts her own abilities to be strong and let people in !!
Derek is a hot movie star who plays a vampire and man is he hot !!!
I could go on forever with this review but I'm not one for spoilers for other readers so but this book if you like a hot story with a bumpy ride then this should be a one click !!!!
