I continue to thank Harlequin Teen for providing me with a copy of this book to read and review. I was anxious to get on with the story as the last installment ended on a cliff hanger. So I needed to know what happened! Receiving this book for free has in no way altered my opinion or review.

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

Part Three in the riveting romantic thriller about a family on the run from a deadly past, and a first love that will transcend secrets, lies and danger…
Betrayed, heartbroken and determined to save her family, Tessa Carson refuses to give in to Tristan Walker's pleas for forgiveness. But her own awakening psychic gift won't let her rest until she uncovers the truth about her family and her past. And Tristan is the only one who can help her sift through the secrets to find the truth hidden in all

I found this instalment a little repetitive. It didn't keep my interest like the others. I found myself wishing I hadn't started a six part series, because it suddenly seemed like a huge investment of time.

I've enjoyed it so far, but I don't think I'll read the next three.

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

An addicting romantic thriller, Part Three: Third Charm was a book I couldn't put down. Kensie continues with her great plot twists, and shocking truth. With each new installment the suspense thickens, and betrayals continue to be that much more heartbreaking. Yeah, I did not see that one coming! Part One: First Sight hooked me. Part Two: Run To You, kept me wanting more. Part Three: Third Charm gave it all to me and then some.

Part three makes you question everything you've learned thus far. I couldn't tell what was real anymore and I had no idea as to who to believe! All I knew for sure was that Tessa's world had been turned upside down and she has to come to terms with new information that has the potential to destroy her fragile state of mind. In addition, Tristan has dropped a whopper of a bomb on her and she must come to terms with that means as well.

I loved the twists and turns Kensie employed in this book. I fl

“For someone constantly on the lookout for suspicious people, I’d been so blind.”—Tessa

Tessa is held captive, and her family is broken. But after eight years of hiding, nothing compares to the betrayal she faces. Determined to save her family, she uncovers a secret about herself. It turns out, she’s not the weakest person in her family. In fact, she’s been keeping them safe for the past eight years. But now? She may be the one to destroy them…

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

This is an over all review of the first 3 parts

I got these books from the author, free of cost, in exchange of an honest review from my side.

Firstly I would like to thank the author and the tour organizers for giving me this opportunity of reading and reviewing these books.

Whoa!!! I wasn't expecting this at all!!! The plot is awesome and the story line is fabulous.

The third installment of Run To You just about blew me away! So many feels!!!
After the ending of part 2 Tessa is heartbroken with the betrayal and lies from Tristian. How could he do that to her and how can he spread the lies? She is scared, alone and hurt but who can she turn to? Is her whole life a lie? Who is the real enemy?

I cant say too much about the plot of this one because it will only be spoilers but its breathtaking and had me feeling so many different emotions. Tessa has learned some

This was probably one of the first serial novels that I truly enjoyed. I always feel like serials don’t provide enough of the story and characterizations and world building are hastily done. Run to You was a fun fast paced read that kept me wanting more as I reached the end of each serial.

Tessa was a mixed bag for me. Sometimes I liked her and other times her mood swings would get annoying. She was practically bipolar when it came to her relationship with Tristan and I really didn’t get why he f

This is just the third part of serial novels! I was absolutely immersed in Tessa and Tristan's struggle to uncover the truth behind the secrets and lies! I literally couldn't put the book down. I just had to get to the end! I just loved these serial novels! Talk about romantic thrillers!

Take deep breaths! You really need to prepare yourself for this part!!!
So many revelations! Heartbreak! And unbelievable reality for Tessa!

Poor Tessa! All of her nightmares seem to be coming true...
No one to trust. No where to go.
Her family is broken.
Tristan is a liar... or is he?

Decisions have to be made. And Tessa finally comes into her psychic power. One that must be controlled quickly or bad things can happen.
Can she handle this all alone???

Such a bittersweet ending.

The third installment of the Run to You serial brings with it a very different type of confusion than we experienced in part one; this the type borne of two seemingly opposing truths that require a great deal of questioning and soul-searching in order to sniff out which is actually an impressively constructed lie. We find ourselves in much the same state as Tessa after the shocking parting line of Second Glance, trying to sort through what we thought we knew about everyone and everything in her ...more

Just when I thought I couldn't love this series anymore, I was proved wrong. Part 3 picks up right where part 2 left off. Tessa is still reeling from everything that has happened to her and wants to so desperately believe that Tristan is wrong and that her parents are innocent......

There is definitely a lot of surprises and a pretty shocking revelation in this book. Let me just say, Tristan definitely won me over again. I loved that he absolutely refused to give up on Tessa and stayed by her sid

As a CP of Clara's I read these three installments as one book, and I absolutely loved the characters and the story then. I am thrilled to have had the chance to reread this just now as the first of Harlequin's digital serials, and I surprised myself by loving RUN TO YOU even more.

Clara is amazing! She's done such a fabulous job with this story. There is so much tension and her ability to capture small details is lovely. But chiefly, she has such warmth and such a taut romance in this story. And

On the third part still under the impression of betrayal Tessa finds out that she too has an ability, an ability which covers most of the book and finally reveals her family's secret. While the ending was bittersweet, I still have more questions about her brother and sister.

Overall, the series is amazing, emotional, the work of an author who has the potential to write eve better action packed stories!

Very entertaining, pretty much nothing is what it seems. Lots of surprises. Good and bad.

There is bit of teenage angst, it didn't bother me, they ARE teenagers after all. Yet, with everything Tessa has gone through, there is a lot more maturity in other senses.

Each book has a cliffhanger, so if you're not into that, I'd suggest wait until the end. However, this section ends with this book, so there is a bit of completion with this one.

I enjoyed the plot in this one...I would highly recommend reading all 3 parts one right after the other if you can. It helps you stay connected to the characters and the story better. And really, all 3 parts combined amount to the length of one regular book. I plan on reading the next 3 parts when they come out!
