If only we’d met at a different time, under different circumstances. A time when we could’ve jumped in his car and taken off without a care in the world other than what crappy motel we’d stop at next.

But we didn’t.

No matter how fast he drove, we hadn’t been able to outrun our pasts. And ever since our last night together, I dreamed about him. About Talon. The man with the

This story contains three parts. The first part is about how Maggie and Talon saw each other and become companions and then lover (just in two days) and then Maggie stole his car, his phone and left him at the motel room in unfamiliar town with a nearly empty wallet and even worse with the police! Part two was four years later. He got out of prison and he still thinks that night Maggie took advantage of him and in these years his hatred regarding Maggie had grown worse and he had the desi

I love Leddy Harper's work most of the time but this book was not one of my favorites. It wasn't bad but I didn't like it enough, either. It was just "meh".


The book is divided into 3 parts:

Part 1.

This part tells us how Maggie & Talon meet, how he tries to help her and how close they get in just 2 days. Then we witness how she leaves him in the end, s

Leddy Harper has once again given readers a fantastic story. The Getaway Car took me on a journey as the characters literally took a journey together. From beginning to end I was emotionally invested in the characters and storyline. Their meeting was unusual and just the start of a great story that would span years, states and the changing of many lives. There was romance and a little mystery here. I got angst and laughter from this story as well. Talon and Maggie were not your typical hero and
"Maggie was like a shot of heroin - offering the promise of better things, yet full of lies."

The Getway Car was my second book by Leddy Harper. Not only is the blurb pretty intriguing but I also fell in love with the cover. So I got curious what this is about. I got a ride I couldn't have been prepared for, even if I tried.

"He truly was trying to save me, and as much as I wished he could, it would only ruin him in the end."

Leddy has a great way of telling a story. You start the book and find you

Love Rerouted (formerly, Getaway Car) took me on such an exhilarating ride. From the moment I read the prologue I was hooked. The story grabbed me and the main characters intrigued me. It was suspenseful and had me guessing as to what was going to happen next. Surprise after surprise had my pulse racing and biting my nails. But I

Damn! Leddy Harper did it again. This time, she made me realize how much I miss and love her words! The Getaway Car is one perfect description of how talented she is as a writer. Her brilliant imagination knows no boundary and as a reader vying for all things Leddy, she WOWED me again!

Talon and Maggie had me from the very first page and I was sucked right into the world Leddy created for them. I was so ravenous of her words that the characters instantly became a part of me. They pushed me to my

Meeting a man at a gas station can be tricky.
Falling in love in two days is possible.
But fixing what's broken...that's harder, might even be impossible.

Coincidentally brought together.
Unique situation pulls them apart.

The Getaway Car is a unique and intriguing story.

Love Rerouted had my ass on the edge of my seat the entire crazy ride! I looooooove these characters! Maggie and Talon have the most amazing chemistry and connection. Talon is so dreamy! Gah! I just adore him.
Leddy’s writing is flawless and brings out major feels. This wasn’t my first book of hers and definitely won’t be the last! Highly recommend Love Rerouted!

Should I run for the hills? Should I be nervous? Scared? Nervous? Nonsense... Lol. This author had made me cry a few times but I love her to pieces and can't read her books fast enough.
Each book is like traveling into a world of desire and love, forgiveness and betrayal...
Leddy Harper has a permanent place in my heart so she's a lucky girl. Lol.
Her writing is simple yet powerful, full of meaning and feelings. Each word will make you feel things and see things differently. Trust me. Been there

The Getaway Car by Leddy Harper is truly an amazing read! Such a book filled with romance, suspense, at times loneliness, moments of desperation, lots of twists & turns, drama, intrigue, and intense chemistry. Maggie Abrams and Talon McNeil meet under unique circumstances. From that meeting, they go on a “getaway trip” one that is filled with secrets and out of that trip develops a deep connection, an intense chemistry. They are running from their past mistakes.

Mind Blown. My first mistake was thinking this was going to be just another romance novel. My second mistake? Taking so long to start the book!!! What was I thinking!!??

Maggie and Talon meet in a very unusual way. He bumps into her in a gas station, that isn't THAT unusual but the circumstances surrounding them both, are. But you have to read it to find out. I have no intention of spoiling this for anyone.

People do stupid things in moments of desperation. Loneliness only increases that level of

The Getaway Car by Leddy Harper takes you on an epic ride about second chances. A love story that will move you, and utterly destroy you. Right until the very end, there are twists and turns you least expect. Buckle in, it’s going to get bumpy.

The story begins with a young girl running from her past, and walks straight into tall, dark, and handsome Talon. He see’s a scared girl who he can’t walk away from. To bad this girl will be his downfall.

Oh my goodness! What an amazing ride in The Getaway Car... eek! This book was an outrageous journey that took me through some dark angst ridden roads with lots of twists and curves and led me right back into the sunshine. I could not be happier and I loved every second of the trip! I also love Talon and I'm claiming him for my own. (I know, shocker right?) A must read book for sure! This author continues to amaze me with her talent and storytelling capabilities. ..just wow.

Omg! This was soooo good!

Can you truly trust someone in two hours? How about two days? The Getaway Car was one hell of a ride! Omg this was soooo good! This story weaves secrets, love, salvation and truths together in an explosive tale. As you move through the story and everything starts to unfold you will be shocked and surprised by the twists and turns Leddy takes us on.

The story is broken into three parts with dual POV’s.

What a thrilling ride! The Getaway Car was not quite what I expected. It was so much better. I really enjoyed this story. So much so that I stayed up way later than I should because I couldn’t put it down. This story is a romance with some mystery and action. It is a stand alone novel.
The plot of this book was written well. Two characters meet by chance and end up on a surprise road trip. The only problem is they are both keeping some deadly secrets. I think the author did a great job of buildin

WoW....this book surprised me in every possible way! Leddy Harper is a new author to me and I absolutely loved her writing and how she told this story.

"I didn't want to be better simply because you didn't throw yourself at me when we first met. It's because you looked at me like I was worth something. For some unknown reason, you trusted me. You gave me a chance to either prove Tony right, or prove everyone else right."

When I first bought THE GETAWAY CAR by Leddy Harper, I did not start reading right away. When I decided to start reading, I was surprised to find the book LOVE REROUTED. At first I thought I had bought the wrong book, but came to find out Leddy Harper had changed the title. Same book just with a different title. What ever title the book is under, after finishing, I really enjoyed the story.

The Getaway Car is about being given a chance at life without the stigma of living the same life you were born into. It’s a second chance story between two characters who were running away from past mistakes. With only the clothes on their back they drove off into the night hoping to escape their problems. Along the way, they form a bond, of comfort, trust, and acceptance.

Before I dive into my thoughts, I wanted to first discuss Leddy Harper. I am a huge fan of her and here is the great thing about her: she will break your heart then piece it back together again…all in one book! To me that’s an important aspect that every author should have in some shape or form, to make the reader feel something. With Harper it’s not just romance or attraction, she puts true emotion into her writing and characters and I just love it.

When Talon McNeil stops to help a girl who looks like she needs some help little did he know how much his life was about to change in two days. Maggie Abrams stole a piece of Talon’s heart but then she stole his car, his wallet and his phone.
Now four years later he may have a chance at reclaiming what he lost but how high will the price be?
This was such a great book with so many twists and things that I never saw coming at all!
My heart just broke for Talon and everything that happened from that

The Getaway Car is an amazing ride. I'm in awe of Leddy Harper, how she is able to make each book so vastly different from her last, yet still as undeniably amazing. I was hooked on Talon and Maggie's story from the prologue. From the moment that they meet, Talon feels this amazing pull to protect Maggie, and I felt all of that. I felt every second of his pain, every second of his desire to protect her.

These strangers make such a lasting connection on one another, and my heart was broken when th
