Nearing age thirty, Jeremy James is cruising along in life, doing as he pleases. No girlfriend, no wife, no drama. Women go as easily as they come, but inside, he feels something’s missing. After the birth of his niece, Hannah, and a not so gentle nudge from his sister, Zoey, Jeremy decides to make a change in his life and settle down.
Then he meets Teagan Donnelly.
And she wants nothing to do with him.
Teagan has recently come out of a three year relationship with a man who cheated, shamed her, and berated her for her weight and life choices. The once secure yet spirited woman cannot figure out what Jeremy wants with her.
For Jeremy, it’s plain and simple. He wants Teagan to stop running away and give him a chance. But for Teagan, taking a chance with Jeremy means she could lose herself all over again.

“I loved this book, it was my favorite of the series. In the previous books Andy captivated my heart from the beginning but Jeremy definitely stole it. Jen Andrews again made me love the characters since the beginning.” ~ Eunices Book Corner
“5 stars! This was such a beautifully written book!! I really enjoyed reading this series and this book as well! Great character development and the story flowed so well.” ~ Alpha Book Club
Let me just start by saying that I really enjoyed the first three books of this series but this one blew me out of the water. I absolutely loved Running Away! Jeremy has used women for one thing only-sex but after seeing his sister Zoey and her husband Andy with their new born daughter, Jeremy decides he wants more. He wants someone in his life to love and share special moments with like his sister and brother-in-law. Several months later, even though he has been dating someone, Jeremy meets a nurse in the ER when he was getting stitches from an accident at the shop and it enticed by not only her beauty but her personality.
Teagan has been hurt one too many times; she has sworn off relationships after being cheated on more than once. She thinks the mechanic she just treated in the ER is cute but know nothing will become of it. Out for a night of socializing with her co-workers, Teagan and Jeremy cross paths again and sparks fly. Jeremy and Teagan begin dating after many disastrous events happen surrounding their relationship and not including the harassment Teagan is experiencing at the hospital from the hands of Jeremy’s ex-girlfriend and her friends. Can Jeremy and Teagan’s relationship survive and will they find their ways back to each other…..you’ll have to read Running Away to find out.
As I stated earlier, I loved this book. It had romance, happiness, sadness, and about every other emotional possible. The story was incredibly written; I was emotionally vested with both the characters of both Teagan and Jeremy. As I continued reading, I didn’t know if they would ever find their way back to happiness, especially with each other. (I seriously thought about e-mail Jen and laying into her; I was that unhappy with the way the story was progressing at one time but luckily, she redeemed herself). Running Away left me with a big book hangover; simply put, it was just that good. Beautifully written doesn’t even begin to sum it up.
It was a 5 star infinity-plus as a contemporary romance-excellent work Jen!
“Lie still,” he said, backing away from me.
Not a problem, I didn’t think I could move even if I wanted to. Which was good, because I didn’t want to. I was going to let him do whatever he wanted to me because I had no doubt I’d enjoy every second of it.
My eyes fluttered open to view the dark sapphire blue of the California night sky. Stars twinkled as the moon made its way across the horizon.
A cold, wet trail from the fruit in Jeremy’s very skillful fingers, slowly made its way up my thigh, followed immediately by his hot tongue warming my skin as he licked off the juice. Just when I thought he was going to make contact with my center, he veered to the right, and up over my hip.
I whimpered at his blatant neglect, and my hands instinctively seized his head. I gripped his hair tightly, wanting to direct him to where I craved him most.
Jeremy let out a low chuckle. “All in good time, pretty girl,” he whispered.
He placed another piece of peach on my stomach then sucked the chunk of fruit into his mouth. Another piece appeared in his hand from somewhere—this time half a peach. He squeezed the fruit, dripping the cold juice over my stomach. The liquid warmed quickly as my skin was ablaze from Jeremy’s delicious torture.
“Jeremy, please,” I crooned.
His mouth made contact with my hot skin, his tongue licking away the peach juice. He kissed and nibbled his way down my stomach, then pulled away from me. My body ached with the need for him to touch me again.
