I received these books from Netgalley in exchange for an honest review. I'll try to keep spoilers to a minimum.

Run to You is a collection of serial novellas, the first YA serial to be released by Harlequin Teen. I like the idea of a serial, reminds me of favorite TV shows we get an episode at a time. But I wasn't sure how that would translate to reading. I hate cliffhanger endings—seriously, they're the bane of my literary existence. Since I received all three books at once, the plan was to read

This review is for Run To You parts 1, 2 and 3. This is a serial series, and so far the first three parts were released together. The next three parts (parts 4, 5, and 6) will be coming out together in June 2014. Each of the three parts is short, like a novella, but together they made a good sized book. I am loving this series! I would easily read right on to the next three parts back to back (to back) if I had them. It is addictive. I felt like I was on a netflix binge and I just couldn't stop ...more

"It hit me, right then, that I had made a mistake. I should never, ever have told him my real name."

I am desperately caught in this whirlwind of novels (novellas? Parts? Whatever works). I devoured part two; it had more action than part one and it revealed a lot of juicy secrets. The cliffhanger ending leaves you no choice but to instantly buy the sequel. Now on to part III!

Once again a huge thanks to Harlequin Teen for providing me with an eARC of the second installment in this series. I was anxious to get on with things and see where they would go! Receiving this book for free has in no way altered my opinion or review.

I loved, loved, loved this series of novellas about Tessa and Tristin. Their worlds overlap and then collide in this original story of coming of age while on the run. The stories are fast paced and well written, and the novellas blend seamlessly together to create a thrilling mystery you can’t put down.

The Carsons are an extraordinary family with varied psychic abilities: moving objects with the mind, memorizing facts with a wave of the hand and observing others with a remote eye. The youngest c

A thrilling, and dangerous sequel, Second Glance picks up right where First Sight ended. Now that we've gotten a small dose of what Kensie's writing style is like with Part One: First Sight, she doesn't hold back with Part Two: Second Glance. She amps up the action, danger, secrets and romance. Unlike part one, this one has one heck of a heartbreaking betrayal that definitely turns everything I thought I had figured out, upside down. I figured things would lead into this direction, I just wasn't

Part Two was even better than the first!! Tessa has settled into life with Tristian. Her parents are still weary of him but Tessa knows she can trust him. They fall into a comfortable routine and Tessa slowly opens up to the fact that she loves him. She realises now that she needs to tell him the truth, he needs to know who she is. She tells him one night that she is on the run and that Tessa is her real name. She struggles with telling him what the hitman did but eventually it comes pouring out ...more

“Every day, we fall apart a little bit more.”—Tessa

For the first time in eight years, someone other than her family knows Tessa’s real name. Tristan. She’s not the only one holding secrets and now she has another protector. And she’ll need another protector. As a killer hunts them, her family is falling apart and life as home may be just as dangerous as the man out to kill them…

“We’d never had a chance.”—Tessa

I enjoyed this installment better than the first and love how the tension is ramped up

Part Two opens up right where Part One left off, after Tessa has told Tristan something about herself that she has never told ANYONE. We as readers know this can't be good, but wow my heart! I absolutely loved seeing Tessa and Tristan together and how unburdened she feels when she's with him. Her parents do not want her to see him anymore, as her father cannot see Tristan for some reason. However, Tessa is holding her ground and refuses to break up with the one solid, good thing in her unstable ...more

Action-packed for such a short serial! I'm very thankful that I have the ARC of book three to start, because that ending was killer!

I've never read a serial series before, so I was quite interested in this story for that angle. Plus the story idea sounded like it would be intense and compelling. Boy, was it.

Part two of Run to You builds beautifully on the first, finally revealing in full exactly what happened to Tessa and her family to send them running for their lives, and while the reason why their family was targeted seems like a bit of an extreme reaction to an investigative journalist’s articles, we can’t help but be grateful some of the confusion resulting from book one is cleared up. What’s so fascinating about reading this story in sections is the way various pieces of information are tied ...more

This is just the second part of serial novels! We continue from where the story left off in Part 1: First Sight. If the first part had those elements of mystery, romance and danger, Part 2 took it up another notch! Tessa finally has somewhat of a "normal" teenage life despite all the secrets. As I read this, I was still on edge. I even found myself wondering if "he" was going to find them! Just like Part 1, Part 2 was definitely an amazing & thril

In Run To You Part 2, Clara Kensie does not disappoint!! Second Glance picks up right where part one ended. That cliffhanger ending from the first book had me holding my breathe and praying that Tessa made the right decision trusting Tristan.........

Second Glance had everything that I've come to know and love from Clara Kensie's writing. The writing just sucks me and always leaves me wanting more, so I was not at all surprised that this book ended with another crazy cliffhanger!

Whoa. Right now, my eyes hurt a bit because I was wide-eyed for at least half the book. My heart is pounding because of all the twists (really, really big one) that occurred in this part. So much happened! Everything has changed now and this thriller has gotten more thrilling. This was such an exciting read and I'm really looking forward to reading the next part!

I'll have a longer and more detailed review of the entire first book after I read part three. In the meantime,

I read this several times in one go as Clara's CP and LOVED IT, but I just reread it as published by Harlequin Teen, and wow. Just wow. It works so perfectly as a serial. And I find myself loving the characters even more this time around I didn't think THAT was possible! Clara writes warmth and love so darn well, all while doing so much heart-pounding tension!

Read this!

3.5 stars. since it's really a mini book and a continuation of part one, I probably would've felt more connected to the characters if I read them one right after the other. Certain aspects were predictable. However, the info revealed on the last page intrigued me enough to want to read part three!

In all honesty, I was beginning to lose interest by part 3… I think I’d prefer to sit down and read a book in one big stint, as opposed to that book being broken up into 6 parts. It makes the book feel longer and more effort than it probably is.

I have enjoyed the first three parts, but I won’t continue reading. Maybe some other time I’ll come back to it.

My Verdict – Did Not finish

On the second part thruths are revealed and ction fills the plot, while Tessa and Tristan struggle to keep their relationship as nornal as they can. But when agents appear and take Tessa away secrets make her shatter.

On the second installment I found Tristan's behavior a little to cheeky for me but judging what he had to do, I might be able to fogive him. :)

Big fan of this series so far but I wish she just put it all into one book. Great concept and just enough drama to keep the pages turning. Again I read this in one sitting straight after I finished the first one

I think I liked this one better than the first part of the serial. This had more action and although I guessed part of the big reveal, I was still surprised by some of it. Can't wait to see where the author takes things in the next installment.

What? What just happened? This is getting more and more interesting. The writing got very confusing at some points but I am ready to move on to the next book. I still don't get why the books were divided into three short parts instead of one, normal-length book.

Just as good as the first part, if not slightly better. I'm not sure what to believe anymore. The last half of this part was so crazy. I was starting to think that might happen, but I was not prepared for it at all. I was also not prepared for that cliffhanger omg.

This series is great! If you loved the Dragon Tattoo series, this is in the same genre, but not so terribly gruesome. Even tho it's for young adults, it's pretty gripping for adults, too!
