Our heroine and hero, Hannah and Ed, have that special oomph that makes their story one to read. Their first interactions show Ed’s light and flirty nature and Hannah’s soft and saucy side. Hannah is the first “roller derby “ character that I’ve come across and this made the story unique. The physical nature of the job bolsters the shield she builds around her. But away from that life she’s vulnerable and in the mere 36 hours or so together, Ed’s charm gets to her.
What drives the story is Hannah’s background growing up in a domestic abuse situation. The flashbacks and descriptions are well done and explain her relationship rules. Ed has his own history of heartbreak and although he’s hesitant he’s more a risk taker than Hannah. The authors create a history between Hannah and Ed that while improbable, it’s still plausible and supports that image that they “meant to be”. With that, the secondary characters further the connection between them, demonstrating the shared trait of loyalty and adding comic relief.
The pace of the story and the way the authors explore the cycle of abuse ( both physical and mental) made this a very compelling read. As was the case with Love Always, it’s the dialogue (particularly with Ed) that made this a great read and pushed it up in rating. The language used by Hannah and her roller derby girls was spot on and the flirty chat between Ed and Hannah is enough to make us blush.Read more ›
Ed and Hannah had amazing chemistry. These two were perfect together. While it could be classed as insta-love, it never felt like that. Their relationship blossomed beautifully. They had so much in common and had such a wonderful connection.
Even though I enjoyed Love, Always a bit more, I still really liked this one. Such a moving story with a powerful message of no matter how broken you may think you are, there is always hope. A compelling and engaging read, I highly recommend this one!
The story itself is one that winds its way from the first flush of love through to the discovery of what it takes to keep a love that is determined to last a lifetime, despite the stumbling blocks of a life not only lived but survived.
The story is that of Hannah and Ed and they are a strong pair with a depth of character that makes them impossible to ignore.
Hannah is a strong character, although her exterior belies the kind heart that she shield so fervently. Her career means that she has more to gain by keeping the softer side of her nature well-hidden but that didn’t mean that she could fool herself.
Ed on the other hand is quite the opposite, or so it seemed to me.
And after their initial meeting his wit and charm seems to have her resolve wilting.
Could he win through her hardened exterior?
I found the reminiscence’s from Hannah’s past to present meant that I could completely absorb the magnitude of the events that Hannah has endured during her childhood.
Life has been abusive and it was shrouded by those events, the ones with which she tries to dictate the shape of her relationship with Ed, little does she know that he has his own demons to fell.
The connection they forge is tentative in the beginning as would be expected but it is littered with all the signs that it could quite possibly have what they need to last a lifetime.
I liked the way that the story took a sensitive history and with an authorative tone and beautifully sensitive phrasing presented me with a story that was quite simply exceptional.Read more ›
Runaway Heart is a unique book in that the heroine Hannah has a bad ass job — she is part of a roller derby team. We get an inside of view of the inter workings of her team, the chemistry and the pure camaraderie — the love the team has for Hannah. Whether she knows it or not, they are her chosen family.
I loved the humor of this book, it is equal parts sweet and bawdy. Honestly, it is what pulled me with the first few pages. This book will make you laugh, but also break your heart and put it back together.
Hannah and Ed are the heart of this this story, how they meet and the flow of their relationship will melt your heart. They are simply adorable together, but because of past heartbreaks, both guard their hearts like guards manning a Brink’s truck. How this all plays out is, I think a credit to the storytelling of the authors.
Hannah is amazing. Things in her life have not always been easy, but she is strength personified in most facets of her life, except when it comes to believing that she deserves love and happiness. The reasons why are heartbreaking and so many times, I wanted to be able to climb through my screen to not only hug her, but tell her that to listen to the people who truly care about her.
Ed. Ed is British. That is all you need to know — just kidding. Ed is keenly observant and more attuned to Hannah than she could ever imagine. So many times he made me swoon with just the thoughts in his head.
Ed and Hannah felt magical. Their chemistry burns white hot.Read more ›
