My head is swimming with so many emotions I'm not sure about anything.
But the one thing I am definitely certain of is this...
Run With Me.....What a brilliant read.
Raw, full of suspense, gut-wrenching, heart-breaking, breathtaking. These are just a few words that come to mind when looking back at this novel.
Such a detailed read with so much depth you can't help but to be drawn to every page turned.
It's mind blowing.
And it left me wanting more.
For those of you who love a suspense filled story, with twists that you never see coming, then this is for you." ~ Review by Gayle from Bloggers From Down Under
About the Author
USA Today Bestselling Author Lacey Silks writes erotic and contemporary romances with a touch of suspense. Her stories come from her life, dreams and fantasies. She’s a happily married wife with two kids who uses her husband to test out the more intimate scenes for her writing – he said he doesn’t mind it at all. Lacey likes to make her readers blush and experience the story as if they were the characters. Drawing on the reader’s most sensitive emotions through realistic stories satisfies her more than… …ok not really, but you get the point ;) She likes a pinkish shade on a woman’s cheeks, men with large feet and sexy lingerie-especially when it’s torn off the body. Her favorite piece of clothing is a birthday suit. If you enjoyed the story, please consider leaving a review. All authors depend on the support of their readers to find an audience.

However, the main bad guy, Ben, rapes Anna, who is dating John a man devoted to prayer, and becomes pregnant with his child. She keeps it a secret from Ben because she knows he will try to take him away from her. She tells John and he decides to keep her secret and propose to her. They decide to marry after the baby is born which I don't understand. In the meantime Anna learns that the Cortez family is smuggling millions of dollars into their town. The town is holding a running of the bulls and Anna and John attend with "their" son, Mickey who appears to get trampled by a bull and dies. The same day he dies, Anna sets fire to Ben's house and steals the millions of dollars, hiding it somewhere. She tells John she burned Ben's house down because she knows Ben had something to do with Mickey's death and she did it out of revenge, but she has to leave town or Ben will track her down and kill her. What she realizes right before she leaves is she is pregnant again, this time by John, so she doesn't tell him about her pregnancy and goes away. She ends up in New York City, sleeping in allies, practically dead. Jack finds her and takes her in. Jack is married to Mary, who is pregnant, and doesn't like Anna at first until she finds out Anna is pregnant. Then they are magically best friends. Little does Anna know, Jack and the mysterious, once thought dead, Xavier, are best friends and he is back in the picture... Jack, Mary and Xavier care for Anna and her new baby, Hope, unTil Anna decides she wants to go back to see John, tell him about their baby and find out if Ben and the Cortez family have left town. In the meantime, John thinks Anna is dead, tells Anna that since he thought she was dead, he let God decide his fate and he became a priest. He tells Anna his love has changed for her because he became a priest and can not marry her now. So she decides not to tell John that she is pregnant. Did she honestly think a dude would wait almost two years for her to come back?? (Spoiler, book two is John being tempted by a woman from town... Really??? You didn't want to wait for Anna so you became a priest and basically rejected her only to get tempted and I'm sure screw someone from your parish?? Yeah, ok.)
Anna is about to leave when Ben sneaks up on them and takes them out to the desert to kill John if Anna doesn't tell Ben where she hid the millions of dollars. Xavier saves the day, kills Ben, but leaves his brother Mateo alive to promise not to go after John or Anna. (Uh, ok, that'll happen) Xavier takes Anna out of the little town promising to care for her and her baby, John stays back to presumably be the priest of this small town. Omg, seriously?? This story is worse than a soap opera. I forced myself to finish reading this book, that is over at about 52% of my Kindle. It ends in s stupid cliffhanger where Mateo is plotting revenge against Anna (Duh!) and teaching a small boy, named Mickey, how to clean a gun... We are left wondering who this Mickey kid is, if it is really Anna's son, presumed long since dead or another kid, wondering what happens to Xavier and Anna and her new baby, Hope, and I'm wondering why Jack and Mary have to leave New York at all. It's a weird story and not written smoothly at all. I purchased the second book in this series before I started reading the first one, which will NEVER happen again. I almost don't care to find out whether the story ends in a HEA at all! The second book deals with John being tempted by a new woman in town... I just can't even...
Anna had already seen way to much. The small town she was from was run by the Cortez family. Cortez was mafia. She knew all to well what it was like for her love ones to be taken away. She refused to give herself to Ben Cortez plus the Cortez wanted her parents land. Due to those events Ben burned her family alive. I can not imagine what it would be like to see the man who murdered your parents each and every day knowing he has not paid for his crimes.
John was an amazing character. You could tell that John carried deeply for Anna. He truly wanted her happiness and to keep her safe. I do disagree with his beliefs that trust in God is all you need to keep you safe.
I loved when Xavier was brought into the story. He was a bounty hunter and was highly attractive to Anna. As soon as he was brought into her life it was like he was ripped away way to soon. But don’t worry that is not the last you will see him in the story.
Anna will learn pain that is worst then loosing her parents. It will rip her into a million pieces. It will take her to the breaking point and she will find, due to her actions she will have to be on the run to stay safe and to protect her baby and John.
There gets to a point in the story that I did not know who Anna would end up with. She is falling for Xavier and Xavier is falling for her as well. The problem is she is also still in love with John.
Danger is just around the corner and Xavier will do what ever it takes to keep her safe. Xavier, Anna, and John are in for a very long journey. Where it leads them, well I guess you will have to read the story to find out.
I do want to say I was in love with Jack and Mary. They were awesome people and Anna is truly lucky she got to know them. She owes them her life and they owe her as well.
This was a great story and glad I got a chance to read the book.
