That man . . . grr. I wanted to strangle him and kiss him and kick him and lick him all in the same moment.

I simply adore this series. I cannot get enough of it. I was immediately hooked the second I read Runaway Road, and it seems to only get better with each book!

If you know me or follow my reviews, then you already know I'm a sucker for a second chance romance. So suffice it to say that I gobbled this story up with a spoon and licked my fingers after for good measure. It

Such a great series!Wild Highway had it all a heartwarming romance ,it was emotional and steamy!I loved this story, and the writing!This is about Gemma's journey to find herself.


"Gemma and I argued. We were at each other's throats, and it was because if we didn't fight this attraction, if we gave in... we'd be doomed."

I adored Easton, he is swoon worthy,sexy, and a broody cowboy!The chemistry between Easton and Gemma was off the charts!Wow they were addictive!

I do believe I have a new favorite runaway! Though I’ve loved the stories of both runaways I’ve already read. Devney Perry is killing it with her new series about this group of broken people who shared a junkyard home when they were young. We started with Londyn and now it was time for Gemma to get into the Cadillac and get her own adventure to happiness. Of course, Devney did a wonderful job with th

Wild Highway is going to give you the small town romance feel, indulging in a unexpected road trip, and wanting to heal old wounds. This was the kind of read that will hit when you’re least expecting it and even though you will breeze the story in no time, these characters will have a lasting effect on you.

Gemma didn’t have the perfect childhood like some kids did. Looking back on it, some moments were filled with fear and having a sense of loss but through it all, she tried her best to get t

I was very intrigued by Gemma's character in the first book so I got very excited to get to know her story. Devney's Perry words are always enticing and I adore her writing style that gets better and better with every new book.

Wild Highway by Devney Perry is the second book in the Runaway series and it can be read as a stand-alone. I went into this book with high expectations and Perry did not disappoint. She took me on a wild yet captivating journey, one which I have yet to recover.

This installment brings us Gemma’s story. From the moment of her introduction in book one, she piqued my interest, and I was curious about her story. Let me tell you it wasn’t pretty. However, she proved to be one tough cookie. She pulled

Oh my word.

I'm all in my feelings over this story. I don't know what I was expecting, but it wasn't the emotional punch packed into this short, sweet, sexy book. I loved Runaway Road, but Wild Highway took it to the next level to me. I felt Gemma and Easton's connection to my core. My heart wrapped itself around them and felt every ache and bruise as these two sorted through their issues and fumbled their way into a hard-won love story.

It was so good. Gemma's story broke my heart. I felt for her

Another 5 star read from Devney Perry, the second journey in the Runaway series.

This time Gemma drives the Cadillac to Montana to see Katherine and to apologise for abandoning her there eleven years ago.

Gemma left the morning after spending the night with Easton so he is not impressed that she is back at the ranch.

Gemma and Easton have a slow burn relationship, enemies to lover.

I lost myself in this story that I was at the end before I even realised it. I loved every second of this book.

Second Chance Romance

Devney Perry is one of my favorite authors. I loved her books since she published her first one and have read every one since then. This series, while different than her other small-town romances, has a unique concept. Each book can stand alone, but they are all interconnected by each character’s past. This book features Gemma’s second chance romance to a boy turned into a man. They are a unique couple, and while at firs

Devney Perry has knocked it out of the park with Wild Highway. When I think of second chance romances, I think of romance, angst and heartache. Wild Highway hit all those marks and took me on a journey I never saw coming…

Wild Highway is the second book in the Runaway Series and it follows the story of Gemma and Easton. From the moment you meet these two characters, you will be utterly consumed by them. I mean, you might as well cancel all of your plans for the day, because you’re going to want t

There is something about a Devney Perry book. You know you’re going to get a beautifully written story that will capture your heart and make you fall in mad love, and that’s exactly what I experienced with this one. The second book in the Runaway series is a gorgeous story of a lost woman finding her place in the world, and an amazing second chance romance that had me feeling all the feels.

‘She’d been a force of her own, so tied up in her own life that others were forgotten. I just had to bide my time. Then Gemma Lane would disappear. And I’d go back to forgetting the breathtaking woman with the sparkling hazel eyes who turns out, I hadn’t forgotten at all.’

My heart ached for Gemma. She has had one tough life but she has not only persevered, she has excelled. I’m all about family and watching Gemma struggle with the lack of family cut me to the quick. I wanted to grab her into my arms and make all the pain go away. She was wounded, knew it, but unable to find the answer of how to heal herself.

Wild Highway is book two in Devney Perry's Runaway series and is filled with lots of small-town loving!

We first meet Gemma in book one, Runaway Road, and she is a member of the Junk Yard crew (a group of runaways). Now, she's wealthy and successful but she's still lost and hasn't found her way just yet. She decides to take the plunge, sells her company and rides off in the Red Cadillac to Montana to make amends with Katherine (a fellow Junk Yard friend) and while there she runs into (

4 stars. I was worried in the beginning there because I did not like Easton for like the first 40% or so of this book. He was so unlikable and childish and rude. It was a turn off but I should’ve known Devney Perry would turn it around and make me fall in love with him and she absolutely did. Once he softened up and stopped judging and being a dick towards Gemma he was a big softy. Though he was an idiot when it came to how he handled a lot of things, his heart was in the right place.

I appear to be reading this series completely out of order but this book holds up as a standalone very well.

And I am LOVING it.

I may be a tiny bit addicted to Ms Perry's style of story telling. From The Coppersmith Farmhouse to Letters to Molly I am hooked.

Wild Highway is the second in the Runaway Series and it is Gemma and Easton's story. When Gemma was eighteen she spent some time working on the Greer Family resort in the depths of Montana and from the very start sh

Second chance romance.
Love hate relationship.
No intimate scenes other than the Hero and heroine.
Both with others during time apart though no details.
Small other woman drama.
Heroine feels he flirts but he is clueless to other woman feelings.
Breadcrumbs dropped for future books in series.

One thing I did feel at the start, the heroine sells her company for millions and she and her PA are worried what she will do with her life..... Who cares, she has dso much money she can do anything..

Having been blown away by Runaway Road, I was particularly excited to read Wild Highway, the second ebook in Devney Perry’s Runaway Series. My eagerness was partly due to the fact that I will gladly devour anything Devney Perry writes, and partly because I’m more than a little obsessed with second chance romances. I don’t know what it is about them, but they’re often hopelessly romantic and gut-wrenchingly emotional, thanks to the already-established history between the main characters. In Wild ...more

Gemma Lane is leaving behind her fast paced, business focused life in order to help deliver her friend’s Cadillac to California. From living in a junkyard, to running a multimillion dollar cosmetics company, Gemma has built her life from the ground up. But she’s taking some time to figure out what is next, and a stop in Montana to visit another old friend is a necessary part of this journey.

Devney Perry has once again blown me away with a book from the Runaway series. Book two, Wild Highway, was a poignant and moving story about one woman’s cross-country journey to find herself. What she found instead was the home she’s always longed for and a second-chance at love with the one man she’s never forgotten.

Gemma Lane has built her empire, and for a girl with her personal history, it was a particularly remarkable feat. A teen runaway who spent several years living in a junky

With the second book of the Runaway series...we follow Gemma's turn with the Cadillac. I love how each girl is taking a turn with the car and it's return to Karson in California.

This is the second chance love story/romance between Gemma and Easton who she ran away from 11 years prior to make her fortune.

They are angry...and the sexual tension between these two is off the roof.

I think the only thing that bothered me was Gemma's insecurity that sometimes it was so bad I found myself ro

Atlast I finished a book after ten years :). Devney gives heartwarming ending.
You won’t know that it’s what you needed. Take the plunge, give in to love and have a happy ending.

I hadn’t cried for long when two arms banded around me and Easton pulled me into his chest. “You okay?”
I nodded, leaning into his embrace. “They’re happy tears.”
“Good. Welcome home, darlin’.”

As always, Devney Perry never disappoints with small town romance. She is just good at her craft and I love the way her stories make me feel all the things. I am a sucker for second chance romances every single time. Easton & Gemma’s love story made me super teary. I loved all the characters and their life on the ranch/spa. This book reiterates the saying about family not being necessarily blood, but the people you choose. Loved this so much!
Gretchen  (About That Story)
This was an absolutely amazing second chance romance! Devney Perry has a wonderful way of inviting you into a story and making you a part of it. Right from the start, I was pulled back into this detailed world, learning about Gemma and her past. I loved meeting Easton and couldn't get enough of the animosity between them as sparks flew.

Gemma and Easton were incredible characters. I loved Gemma and this remarkable strength she had. I was intrigued by the life she’d built and understood her confl
