EVERY SINGLE TIME. You think you know which is your favourite Onslow boy, BUT YOU DON'T. Sure, you have seen enough of each and you love them all and you might even think you love one more than the other, but really you are just kidding yourself. Duggan keeps bringing us closer, deeper to these swoon-worthy boys she has created, and each time I fall for them a little bit more.
This time was no different. Ringer is sick of the love-fest in Onslow, and he takes the first opportunity to get away for awhile. But of course, things are never quite that simple for the Onslow boys and for Ringer it is no different. Once he meets Miranda Henry, the games begins. She may look like an angel but it's the devil she has in her eyes as she and Ringer go down a path that there is no coming back from. There was a lot of fun, jokes and craziness but in the end, there is the love that we want to see and we sure do get it.
Ringer is similar to the other books in the summer series - as in there is hot man-candy, crazy women and sexy moments that make me blush like a little girl. But Ringer is a different Onslow boy and that makes his story different to the others. If you love the Summer series, then this one will be no different. If you haven't read the summer series, then unfortunately we can't be friends.
The Good: Ringer the sexy bad boy, who does naughty things, who learns to love - it's absolutely gorgeous to read.
The Bad: I STILL CAN'T DECIDE WHO MY FAVOURITE ONSLOW BOY IS! Maybe after the series is completely finished I will be able to decide... But the thought of that day coming upsets me greatly - I won't ever be ready to leave these boys (and girls) behind.

This time, the story is told from Abdi's point of view - and we pick up after Tegan and Abdi have been with SADU for a while, pawns in their little game. After being tortured and spouting lies to rich people, both Abdi and Tegan are close to giving up, when they get rescued by a band of people called "Save Tegan".
While We Run was very different to the first book, and I found it a lot darker, which was difficult to handle. Our duo got themselves into tight spots in the first book, but this was different. Their entire being was changed, and it put a huge impact on the story.
Despite this, I did like how the story went. There were several twists and turns, none of which I really saw coming. This added to the intensity of the book and I couldn't really put it down! So if you have read the first book, you definitely need to get to this one!
**Sorry for the short review - I wasn't sure how to write my feelings without giving too much away.
The Good: Healey managed to end the book in a way I certainly didn't expect. It wasn't "perfect" but it fit the setting perfectly.
The Bad: Abdi and Tegan went through a lot, but Tegan seemed to deal with everything a lot better. A lot of it depressed me, especially when it was brought up over and over throughout the story.
