Bride on the Run by Catherine Mann and Joanne Rock

Rating: 4/5

 When she realised her groom to be was actually a member of the criminal group, probably marrying her to have better access to her family’s criminal elements, Valerie Dimitri follows her Dad’s advice and runs – riding off on a motorbike in her wedding gown (hence the book’s cover!). She’s been in hiding for a year, using an assumed name to be the voice on a popular call in advice show, “Sex with Serena”, on which she gives advice to callers. When one of her callers turns out to be a local celebrity who was engaged to marry local ball player hero ‘Boom Boom’ Boone Sullivan she didn’t realise her advice was being broadcast on television as well as on the radio. Nor did she realise that her advice led to the very public break up of their relationship.

Boone blames ‘Serena’ for his girlfriend’s very public break up with him and he’s determined to make her publicly apologise, so he’s employed a PI to find her. When he’s told where she is, Boone decides to pay her a visit. Neither had anticipated their mutual attraction nor how his visit would publicise her, revealing her new name, location and putting her in danger from the criminal gangs. Can they escape? Will love find a way for them?

The mafia type elements, danger and drama make this a great book to escape into – I really enjoyed sitting in the sun to read it! This is the fourth book in this great series by the same authors and is a lovely romantic read. The stories are standalone books but with characters, locations and runaway brides in common. 

Thanks to the author, publishers and NetGalley, too,
