What a wonderful story !!! I do not have words to describe how much I love this book. Seriously, I really loved this.
It was so lovely to see Beau breaking through Hailey's barriers and fighting for their love and what a cute thing to see him being a real father to Lottie, the wonderful child deserved it so much.
For those who have followed this series of books from the beginning, I can assure you that this one is as wonderful as the others.
Now I'm excited waiting for the next book from Ja

Once again I’ve ventured out from under my rock and taken a chance on a new-to-me but apparently popular author. My respite from darkness certainly paid off and, just like that, Albright secures herself a place on my list of must-read authors with this hilarious, delightful, heartfelt read!

Single mom Hailey Odom has rented out her house and moved her things, but at the final hour she has a disagreement with her fiancé and leaves him at the altar. Just one little detail she's forgotten: she retur

Loved this so much!!!!!!

When I found out that Beau’s book was #4, I couldn’t read book 3 fast enough. I needed the smirking, charming, and sexy AF country singer’s story. And Ms. Albright did not disappoint.

Beau is a huge flirt, with a sexy as sin smirk, and has a heart of gold. I want to hug him and squeeze him and call him my own.

Hailey and Beau tried so hard to stay away from each other. It was best they remained friends. But guess what? Their chemistry was off the charts HOT. So they decid

Loved, loved, loved this! Hailey and Beau are both trying to protect their hearts, but I love the genuine friendship that develops between them amidst their scorching chemistry. Lottie definitely steals the show more than once. I totally teared up at the end, too. If that's not a sign of being invested in this romance, then I don't know what is. Another amazing rom com from Jami Albright.

This was one of my most anticipated reads this year and it did not disappoint! I’ve been dying to read Beau’s story since we first met him in Running with a Sweet Talker. This book is now my favorite in the series. Hailey and Beau are exactly the kind of love story I like to get lost in when I read. A definite must read!

The waiting may have been long for this fourth installment, but it was worth it. In Running After a Heartbreaker, Jami is back with one more Bride on the Run to make us laugh out loud.

Visit whacky Zachville one more time to find out what the promising favorite country superstar Beau Callen has become. Tag along as the Heartbreaker will try to break the ice around Hailey's heart - a single mom and bankrupted bar owner, who is the most stubborn and most despised woman in the whole city. I swear H

I wish I could give more than 5 stars! I absolutely loved every single second of reading this book!
The chemistry between Beau and Hailey was off the charts!
They were so well developed and relatable. I loved Lottie she was so sassy.
This is definitely a must read book. I was sucked in so quickly with this book and stayed up way too late reading it. (Totally worth it) You can read and enjoy this book without having read the others in the series but it is fun to see the other characters from prev

I’ve enjoyed author Jami Albright’s Brides on the Run series, but Running After A Heartbreaker is the perfect balance of funny and heart breaking. Single mom with an awesome kid, tied to her home town by a promise she made her late mother. Up and coming country western star who is about to break into the big time. It is sweet, made me laugh out loud, and made me tear up a time or two. I love the interplay between the hero and the heroine’s daughter, that the heroine is strong but vulnerable, tha ...more

Jami Albright's Brides on the Run series just got a new story to add to the already fun, humorous, HOT and steamy collection and with it, a new leading man to fall in love with. This book has bumped off all the others as my favorite in this series so far. Of course, I loved each and every one of them on their own but I've been patiently waiting to have Beau's story since he appeared as Jack's newly discovered cousin in book 2.

Our hero, Beau, might be an incorrigible flirt, but he has a heart of gold and steals the show in this funny, romantic and heartwarming book. The story follows Beau, a musician on the verge of his big break. He’s set for success until his band unexpectedly implodes and he finds himself living above a single mom’s garage. Hailey hasn’t had the best of luck herself, and so she’s decided to play it safe and marry a predictable, nice guy who doesn’t give her any butterflies (unlike Beau, though she ...more

Perfect love story that will melt your heart. Beau Callen is an up and coming country music star. If we remember from Running with a Sweet Talker, Jack and Louann found Beau when Jack had a family reunion. Beau is his cousin and has so much talent and looks he is destined to be a star. Beau is focused on his career and sweet talking the ladies. That comes natural to him, they all love him except the feisty Hailey Odom. She seems to be immune to his charm.

The Brides on the Run series returns with the town scapegoat, Hailey Odam, struggling under the weight and scrutiny of ten years worth of judgement from the close-minded town of Zachsville.

Unfairly condemned for becoming a teen mum at 16 and ruining the life of the towns star football player, Hailey has come to believe that she’s worth nothing but hardship and bad luck. She walks out of her wedding to Roger, who’s opinion of her and her dedication to her failing business aligned with so many oth

I’ve been really lucky of late to read a series of books that were just so good they’ve left me speechless. This one doesn’t break the pattern. I adored Beau. I have from the moment he first stepped on the page however many books ago that way. He’s a true Southern charmer, just like his cousin. And all that charm gets him into just as much trouble as it gets him out of. I’m not quite sure why, but I really connected with Hailey. None of the events in her life mirror mine, but I find myself repea ...more

Hailey and Beau have appeared in other books in the Brides on the Run series and I was excited to get their story next.

Hailey is a single mom to Lottie and runs the local bar Boon's. She's independent, hard working, and still feels like she's trying to earn the respect of townsfolk who look down on her.

Beau is on the brink of success as a country singer and is in Zachsville to work with Gavin, Jack, and Luanne as he builds his career.

This was such an awesome story! It was fun, flirty and sweet. I loved her “country-isms”! Too funny!

It has all the wonderful characters from earlier in the series located in Zachsville Texas. This is Hailey (owner of Boon’s Saloon) and Beau Callen aka The Heartbreaker. He is the next up and coming country music star.

The story begins as she’s about to get married to Roger. She finds out right before the ceremony that Roger isn’t as quiet and mellow as she thought he was which causes her to cut an

That was ten years ago and it still persists.

This is such an awesome series to read and Beau and Hailey’s love story is lighthearted, romantic and at times emotional. It’s the perfect book to curl up with when you are looking for a little romance. Beau and Hailey start out as friends and their road to love evolves slowly and is expertly written. There are bumps along the way for them both with Hailey having most of the issues concerning their relationship and her past promises. I loved their banter and how Beau treated Lottie. I loved his

I have read and cherished many stories from Jami. Hailey and Beau's story was one I've been patiently waiting on with zero disappointment. Characters that you swear have jumped out of bookworld and telling their tale in vivid details right in front of you. Beau will have you a hot mess for him and Hailey is a kick butt mom with strength when she needs it and believability.

If you have read Jami Albright's other "Running" books, then you have been looking forward to reading Hailey and Beau's story. They showed chemistry and sparks in a previous book and it's great to see they have their own story.

Hailey is a single parent holding onto the one thing she has left of her mom and the doing the one thing her mom asked of her before she died. To keep the bar open. She's pouring everything she has into it, but it seems to be a losing battle.

I'm a born and raised Texas girl and am the multiple award-winning author of The Brides on the Run series--a fun, sexy, snarky, laugh-out-loud good time. If you don’t snort with laughter, then I haven’t done my job.

I'm also a wife, mother, and an actress/comedian. I used to think I could sing until someone paid me to stop. I took their money and kept on singing.

I love my family, all things Outlan
