Review: Quarter Miles by Devney Perry

Posted on July 21, 2020 by Nadene @ Totally Addicted to Reading in Reviews / 14 Comments

Quarter Miles, the third book in the Runaway series. It was a brilliant addition to what I consider an awesome series. Going in, I knew this would be an enjoyable read, but I never thought it could top the previous books. Devney Perry has now been officially added to my must read author’s list.

This installment brings us Cash and Kat’s story, whom the reader met in the previous book. Cash Greer grew up in a wealthy and loving family. Kat came to work for them at eighteen years of age and since then, they have treated her as one of their own. Throughout this time, she slowly fell in love with Cash. Unfortunately, it appears she would forever be in the friend zone. So when Gemma suggested she deliver the Cadillac on her behalf, she never hesitated as it would give her a chance to clear her head and hopefully get over her feelings for Cash. However, the one thing she did not count on was the object of her affection accompanying her on journey.

The reader learns of Kat’s past and the reason she became a runaway. Her situation left a poor taste in my mouth and my heart wept for her. No child should ever have to go through such an experience. I admired her resilience. She achieved a lot since finding her way to the Greer’s, but she yearned for love and family to call her own.

Cash was a caring, funny and an overall awesome guy. He had always cared for Kat, but he failed to recognize that what he felt for her went beyond friendship. Watching him recognize how he truly felt about her was a delightful experience.

I had a marvellous time with the development of the romance, which was sweet, passionate and angsty. I have to admit though, there were a few times when I found their actions frustrating. I just wanted to knock some sense into them. Their stubbornness, refusal to communicate, fear of destroying their friendship and failure to see what was before their eyes proved a hindrance to them finding their way to each other.

This story dealt with some heart breaking issues, but the author balanced it out with quite a few humorous moments.

Quarter Miles is a heartfelt friend to lovers romance which took the reader on a journey of love and healing.




                                                     EXCERPT                                                                  “Why did you turn the air on?” she asked, looking above us to the open air. “I’m hot.” Desperate. What would it take for her to put on a goddamn sweater? “Are you wearing sunscreen?” “Uh, no.” She gave me a sideways glance. “Why?” “You’re going to get burned.” Get the sweater, Kat. You know you want to. “I’ll be fine. At the next gas station, I’ll grab a bottle for us.” Us. Why did that word sound so serious? It wasn’t the intimate kind of us. There was no us. Not in the couple sense of the word. Did I want there to be an us? Yes. That lightning-fast internal response nearly had me slamming on the brakes, turning this car around and going back to Montana, where the world was normal. Kat was my friend. My best friend. Roommate. Coworker. Pseudo sibling. There were days when I’d trade Easton for her permanently. Okay, any day. There were plenty of ways to label our relationship and us was not one. I could not—would not—tear down the boundaries that nearly a decade and firm family reminders had put in place.
