Why was letting him go so hard? Why couldn’t he love me back?

I am so in love with this series, and I am beyond head over heels for this book!

If you love a swoony and emotional friends to lovers romance with a splash of unrequited love vibes, then prepare for the book hangover to beat all book hangovers. I'm not typically a reader that gravitates towards friends to lovers romance. I much prefer the angsty vibes of a good enemies to lovers trope. But this romance made a converte

This is another fantastic read, it was addictive fast paced and I love the romance.This is a friends to lovers full of emotions , sweet and intense moments.

What a journey, Kat and Cash’s stole my heart.I fell for them hard and I loved their relationship as friends and then to something more.There was a moment I wasn't ok with because I wanted more but apart from this it was a great read!

Quarter Miles was a heartwarming story !

Buckle up y'all - Katherine and Cash are about to take you to angst city!

What a ride! As usual, I was hooked immediately - already primed for and emotionally invested in Katherine and Cash's story, I was so anxious to see how their friends-to-lovers story was going to play out. This was so compulsively readable - it moved quickly and I genuinely loved these flawed but lovable characters and their fumbling, sometimes painful journey to love.

While I did love this story, I didn't always feel the co

ARC provided by the author in exchange for an honest review.

I literally devoured Quarter Miles in just one sitting and just a few hours. The hype for this novel specifically was huge for me (and I'm sure for many others) and I got engaged to these characters ever since we got to know Katherine and Cash in the last book of the series. I love a good friends-to-lovers / “I’ve loved you forever” kind of romance and Devney did a brilliant job with this one. It was a great addit

Obsessed with this series! I simply love it so much.

Kat and Cash: best friends - to - lovers - romance. This was done well by ms Perry. Usually I find it very unbelievable that all of the sudden one of the them realizes what he/she had in front of her all along and BANG love is here. But here I think Cash suppressed his feelings for Kat for the reasons he himself is

Well... the last book I read in the series. It was OK. Like many of other books in this series, I found the story ia mild. There is some angst but very minimum.

I think Miss Perry intended this book to be journey finding home for each of the characters. I am bit disappointed. I want more but I just have to settle with what it is.

Quarter Miles, the third book in the Runaway series. It was a brilliant addition to what I consider an awesome series. Going in, I knew this would be an enjoyable read, but I never thought it could top the previous books. Devney Perry has now been officially added to my must read author’s list.

Quarter Miles is the third book in the Runaway Series by Devney Perry and whilst you could read them as standalone, your experience of each main character’s story is better enjoyed by reading them in order. In each book, you garner a little insight into the lives and hardships each of these women have gone through and how spectacularly they turned their lives around and how they eventually discover themselves, and in the process, love.

I loved every mile of this journey I took with Kat and Cash in the Cadillac.

I took my time reading this, I did not want the road trip to end.

I have read all of Devney's book and she can still surprise me as I had no clue what the secret Cash was hiding from Kat or his family was about.

I am super excited for the next book in the Runaway series Forsaken Trail, Aria and Brody's story, the blurb WOW my kind of story.

Quarter Miles is such a deep and raw story, Devney Perry's most emotional book yet!

I don't know what it is about the friends-to-lovers trope mixed with unrequited feelings that makes my heart and soul weep! But, at last, it's that good, bone deep hurt with a promise of a rainbow at the end that I love; and Quarter Miles depicted this beautifully.

I have to say this series has been Devney's most fun! Each book focuses on a different Junkyard Kid, runaway teenagers who

“Why was letting him go so hard? Why couldn’t he love me back?”

So much of romance is about desire, about yearning to be loved and wanted, but there is something tragically beautiful, and utterly gripping to me, about tales of a love that is not returned. The achy, melancholy heartbreak of loving someone who would never love you back, only to discover that that love is not as one-sided as it appears, is perfect fodder for the romantic in all of us, and Devney Perry does the unrequited
4 Kat and Cash Stars

I am completely sold on this series. I love Devney Perry's style of writing. Her words and descriptions are so pretty and the way she writes her characters hooks me in every time. There is just the right amount of angst and always plenty of romance to keep this reader very happy.

This is the third book in the series but can easily be read as a standalone. It follows on from Runaway Road (Londyn and Brooks) and Wild Highway (Gemma and Easton). This is Kat and Cash's story. Kat

Ok ok this one was really good too! But ugh Katherine really got on my nerves sometimes, specially towards the end of the book. She really wanted a certain outcome but when push came to shove she pushed people away, turned her back on them and did not freaking communicate ugh. I am getting so tired of plots where the main issue is lack of communication man. Just talk and be honest with each other, over half your problems would get fixed if you just did that!!

4.5 Heads or Tails Stars!!

This series is enchanting. I love Devneys little touched that make the story come alive, like flipping a coin to determine their destination. I could see where some people can find this kitschy, but I found it adorable. I loved that their story happens after Gemma found Kat and Kat was going after Aria. So many scenes and quotes to highlight, I kinda went crazy. I just love friends to lovers and this was a great one.

Quarter Miles was an amazing friends to lovers story! From the second I picked it up I was hooked! It flowed so well and I was instantly caught up in the emotion and history of Katherine and Cash’s lives. This was an excellent addition to the Runaway series!

I loved Katherine and Cash. I really liked learning about them and the amazing friendship they have formed over the years. I felt so much for Katherine and the position she was with how she was feeling. I adored Cash, he was so sweet. I loved

As soon as I finished reading the previous book in this series, Wild Highway, I was instantly excited for Quarter Miles! I just knew that it’s gonna be a great friends to lovers story and Devney Perry delivered so much more! My gosh, Cash and Kat's story is incredible. So heartfelt and full of feels!

Road Trip To Love One Flip At A Time

I am ready for a road trip!!! The author inspires wanderlust and the desire to see everyone in the junkyard family get their own HEA.

We met Kat in Wild Highway and I couldn’t wait for her story. She’s the manager at the lodge and honorary family member of the Greer family. She arrived at eighteen and has been in Montana ever since. Now she’s ready for a road trip. She needs time away from her best friend, Cash. They are roommates and colleagues, but he’s also

Holy highways!!! This series has completely stolen my heart but Cash and Katherine absolutely OWN it!!!
Oh, the angst of unrequited love! Katherine has loved Cash for years but has been solidly placed in the “friend zone” with a side of “like family” to ensure she’ll never have the relationship she desires with him. So of course, a classic Cadillac convertible comes into play and Kat sets off to rid herself of the emotions the unattainable cowboy stirs in her.

To say I couldn’t wait to read Quarter Miles would be an understatement. I’ve been anticipating Katherine and Cash’s story since the taste we got of them in Wild Highway. And I’m not at all surprised that it filled me with happiness and left me so in love with Kat and Cash.

My heart ached for Kat and everything she went through and what she endured. Her childhood was anything but easy, and needing to grow up faster than she needed to. But she persevered and worked hard to get to where she is and
