First off I have to say that I love Katie Reus. That will not sway my review in any way. This is the kind of book that once you start, you finish in one sitting. Yes, it is that good and just the right length to accomplish. Katie has a knack of pulling you in with a suspense, then adding that tug of war romance, and killing it with a happy ending. In Running From the Past, she manages to get it all in in 108 pages! Really, who doesn’t love an ex-Marine that works on a ranch and has the bod to prove it! And he falls in love with the ‘perfect’ girl who secretly needs his help from an evil ex that is after her for witnessing a gruesome act. The perfect plot, with just enough romance/sex and violence.
