Living after the loss of my father, and at the cruel attention of my mother, I, Eli Madsen, was stuck in a world eclipsed in secrets of pain, fear and loneliness.

Pushed to the edge with nowhere to go but down, I dreamed of an escape. Little did I know that the boy next door would give me just that.

He knew my pain, my fears and my secrets because he had them too.

He was my hope, my love, my light and my promise.

Brought together by an unlikely bond, we found something in each other that couldn’t be ignored; safety, strength and hope. Leaving everything, including the darkness behind, we set out to make a new life for ourselves.

We ran away from our past and ran towards our future.

Until the day darkness found us once again, and promises made became promises broken.

We had a plan.
We had each other.
We had love.
And then we had nothing.

Runaway Love is a story of finding light in the midst of darkness. It’s a story of making something beautiful out of something so dark. But most of all, it’s a story of hope, love and taking chances.

This is the first book in a two-book series. Each book can be read as a stand alone, and do not end in cliff-hangers.

***Laura – #NerdGirlVixen’s  Review***
Runaway Love by Jamie Lee is an amazing and delightful read!
I finished it one sitting! From the first chapter to the last, I was hooked. The author did an amazing job on the story. What a story it is! You meet Eli and Drew. You follow them through their ups and downs. I laughed and cried with them. I felt what they felt. By the time the book was done, these characters had become my friends.
Speaking of characters, every one of them was well written. Of course I have my favorites and am pleased that they will be getting their own book. Eli was great. I could relate to her. I do like that when reading a book. I love love Tess! Sassy and spunky. She reminded me of myself.
This book was very enjoyable and had some def feels moments. I can’t wait for the next book! I give this 5 stars
