Running Away To Home is Rosemary Willhide’s début novel and the first book in a trilogy. And she did herself proud!
Nia Kelly. A twenty-four year old fitness instructor who teaches spin classes at an exclusive sports club in the city that never sleeps, Las Vegas,
has a bundle of secrets. Secrets that she is afraid to tell, a past she’d rather forget. With the help of her best friend, Julia, she’s remained safe and secure from what she had left behind.
Enter handsome Derek Pierce. Actor, heart-throb to many screaming women and vampire in a prime time TV series. An all-round nice guy. Derek has moved to Vegas to chill out between movies and breaks in between filming his show. One day he strolls into the club to have a closed class with Nia which literally puts her into a spin (no pun intended)! As they get to know each other, the attraction between them is quite clear, the flirty glances and touches affirm that. Nia knows that being in a relationship with Derek could bring her past back to haunt her. A chance she is willing to take as she has fallen irrevocably in love with Derek. And the feeling is mutual.
If there’s going to be any future for them, she needs to reveal what she has hidden away. Due to unforeseen circumstances, she has to though. Needless to say, both Derek and Nia come face to face with what she’s been running away from.
The storyline was great and I enjoyed it immensely. The sex scenes were hot; however, I did have to laugh at some of the ad libs included in the authors writings. I’m not used to hearing earlobes being called “Spongy Treasures” or hitting the “Twat Spot” This I had to Google! There is also a lot to be said about the editing of this book, but we cannot hold that against the author.
I’m looking forward to book two as I would like to see what happens between the two protagonists.
