Running into Love has that Aurora Rose Reynolds feel you get while reading her books. Its sweet, light hearted, sexy, and fun. It has a alpha man and an adorable heroine. I was excited to read it when I saw the cover and synopsis, and I liked it a lot!

Fawn is a teacher who lives in NYC. Shes got two sisters and parents she loves, but shes about done with men. Shes had some bad experiences here lately and shes over it. Levi is a detective and moves across the hall in Fawns building.

This book is a confusing one for me to review because for every thing I didn't like, there was something that I did. Overall it was a good story and maybe most of my issues came from me being too critical of it but there were little things that bugged me throughout my reading.

I actually had to start the beginning of this book over more than once because I was so confused by the first few pages. It opened with Fawn running in the park with her eyes close. Why? Well,

The start of what's going to be an addicting series !

Aurora Rose Reynolds is one of my go-to authors and I know that when I pick up one of her books Im going to be treated so well with a hot, emotional, sweet, well-rounded story featuring amazingly developed characters and secondary characters that are going to be more than just background players and that I will become just as invested in them as I am in the main couple. And Running Into Love was no exception.

The author isn't breaking any new

descriptionPretty cover on this one. Good representation of the characters (although I don't remember him having tattos ever mentioned??) Great composition and titile work as well.description

descriptionI was in the mood today for something low angst and this one fit the bill to a "T". I will say I was a bit disappointed that it wasn't hotter (no sex until 60%). But as always I enjoyed this author's writing. The pace was good, and I was never bored. There was no OW/OM drama, and the (few) sex scenes were hot. The mystery aspect

Quirky twenty-something meets hot police officer, and romance follows. The end.

Alright, perhaps I should elaborate, but I still stand by my one-sentence-review over there : don't expect to be surprised by anything, because you most likely won't.

1) Why did I expect the title to be... hmm... metaphorical? It wasn't. Fawn really does run into Levi (while her eyes were closed, which is never explained and I mean who closes her eyes while running in a public park? Seriously?) and they really do

Who would have thought running with your eyes closed would lead to love?

When Fawn meets Levi, neither one are in the market for a relationship. Hell, after the admittedly meet cute way they came to be introduced via Fawns enthusiastic dog, shed probably prefer to stay as far away from Levi as humanly possible. Too bad that hot, sweet police detective just moved in right across the hall from her.

I have to be honest and say Running into Love was not at all what I expected

This was a quick, sweet, low angst, fun read. It had some great humor, pretty much insta-love, quirky characters, and a loveable pupper, too.


That being said... there were parts that seemed confusing to me including the opening scene of this book where the two MCs meet while she's running through New York with her eyes closed and flailing her arms... ummm, okay?? Odd.

Overall it was a safe, sweet read.
Not quite my kind of a heroine; too insecure and too soft.
The hero was ok.

I rarely comment on writing, but here I need to say, that Im used to this authors writing being more engaging.

Either I lost track of the story or I had not enough coffee the morning I read it.

What I liked:

- hs caring for her students (she was a teacher)

I have written the beginning of this review 4 times. I can't get my thoughts down to explain the things I liked and the things I struggled with. It was a good book, just not good for me. I started Running into Love and within the first few pages, I was pulling squinty eyes that morphed into eye twitches.

The first sentence of the book introduces us to a woman running with her hands in the air and her eyes closed. My first thought was Oooh, Is she in danger? Now, that

It was a long time since I read a book from this author and I have to say that I freaking loved Running into Love.It was exactly what I needed!It was funny,sweet,cute and sexy.

Levi was a swoon worthy hero.I was melting for him from the beginning.He was protective and sweet.Such a perfect alpha male.Fawn was such a fun heroine,omg there were so many times that I was laughing with her awkward moments.I loved her family and her dog.I love the banter between Levi and Fawn.

This kind of book is like catnip for me. It's sweet, funny and very low angst. I absolutely adored Fawn and Levi both individually and as a couple.

Fawn was quirky, sweet and hilarious. Never a dull moment with that girl. I loved that she didn't push Levi away and let their relationship progress without a lot angst.

Levi was so awesome. The alpha that I always love from ARR. He was a tough as nails detective but soft for Fawn. I loved

This book grabs your attention right off with Fawn literally running into Levi. She just happened to be running with her eye's closed. She's quirky like that. Instantly they start to banter and I am sucked in to their snarky charm. It just so happens when they part it's not for long because of course Levi is Fawn's new neighbor.

Fawn is a 5th grade teacher who loves her job and her kids. Levi is a detective with the NYPD and is young to have made it so far so soon in his field. Both have

This book was so freakin adorable and completely hit the spot for me. It was low angst, stress free, funny and hot! There is nothing better than being able to read a book that makes you smile from beginning to end.

I love how Fawn and Levi met. Fawn is just a little bit scatterbrained and Levi is the not so nice guy, except when it comes to fawn, well except for their first meet. It was cute and got me excited to see where ARR was going to take the story.

Fawn and Levi both have crazy families and

"Running into Love" was a nice reading. I'm done, that's it! No just kidding, I have a few things to always!

I liked the book but it was just a nice reading to pass my time. Levi was good enough but not the alpha male I'm used to from this author, at least for me. And Fawn was like on of her students, same attitude and a little immature...Ok maybe I'm exaggerating, but come on, sometimes she was too naive (I mean her student Tamara was more serious and mature than her).

I am twirling inside with giddiness!

Fawn and Levi literally run into each other and the chemistry is instantaneous. When Fawn realizes the hot handsome stranger she practically tackled is her new neighbor she finds herself tied in knots. Shes pretty much given up on dating. Its just all soconfusing. What she doesnt comprehend is that Levi is bewitched with the clumsy, crazy, gorgeous woman who lives next door and hes determined to find out if together they can find more.

Running Into Love was one of the sweetest, funny and most lighthearted novels Ive read in a while! A true feel-good kind of story!

Fawn, after a long line of disastrous relationships and dates, has basically given up on the dating scene. Add to that her nerdy and homebody character, she doesnt hold much hope to find a love like her parents, a true forever kind of relationship.

That is, until she literally runs into a delectable shirtless stranger, LOL!

I had a great time reading this book, it's exactly what you think of when you think of a Aurora Rose Reynolds book. The hero is crazy possessive and knows he wants the heroine form the start and he also doesn't mess around. The heroine is sweet and kind and not full of herself and the perfect match for our hero. This was an easy fun read, I flew through it and just really enjoyed reading this book from being to end. I was never board and I didn't want to skim or skip around and

When I first read Miss Reynolds book, I remember I do not like it. I even shelved it under DNF. I remember it was boring and I avoid her books ever since.
When I see Running into Love, I took a chance listening to the audio book. And I am surprise that I like this book OK. Yes the story, the plot, the drama is simple and min of angst. Not so complex on the story development. Just a relaxing beach read.

The character development is OK. Likeable hero and heroine. Even though The POV is mainly from

Another sugary sweet hit by ARR! I adored the quirky lovable characters and the steaming romance in this story.

I might be in the minority here but I didn't enjoy this one as much as I thought I would. I liked most of it, but there was some stuff I just couldn't ignore. For one, I felt like Fawn acted and thought too much like an insecure tween then a mature professional 27 year old. We're told she's a school teacher but the way the author describes her - thoughts, actions, mannerisms - didn't not connect. I felt like I was reading a YA books rather than a romance between two adults.

Running Into Love is the beginning of a new series by one of my favorite authors. I was so excited to dive into this one. Unfortunately, it didnt have the BOOM that I was expecting.

While I enjoyed the book overall, I didnt like the heroine. Man oh man, Fawn had me scratching my head. From running (jogging) with her eyes closed to running from Levi every time he expressed an interest in her, I was at a loss.

Like seriously questioning this girls sanity.

Levi even calls her crazy! I am not

I am a big fan of this author. I really loved her "Until" series and the "Underground Kings" !! So of course I had to give this new book a go ;)

Even though I did enjoy reading this wasn't my favorite of her.

I found the openingscene of this book pretty confusing. The heroine was running around with her arms wide and her eyes closed and ran into the hero. When he asks her if she is alright afterwards she acts all flighty, and for the life of me I couldn't figure out why, and what was

Running into Love was a nice and easy read. A low angst romance with a sweet and fun heroine and protective alpha hero. I did enjoy it however whenever I put it down I kind of forgot about it. It wasn't one of those books that really pulled me in and made me not want to stop reading. I just wish the suspense part of the plot was stronger. Overall if you enjoy ARR books I think you will like this one.

Fawn is a teacher that loves her job and her students but unfortunately shes not as lucky at love as she is with her job. Just when she swore men out of her life and run in the park may change that when she bumps against a handsome stranger while running with her eyes close (dont ask!). But the big surprise of them all, is when she finds out that she has a hot new neighbor, Levi and the handsome stranger from the park.
