Editorial Reviews

Amazon.com - Sara Nurrenbern
devoured this book in two days, and loved every second of it! I experienced a vast array of emotions, feeling empathy, love, frustration, heartache, and joy both with and for the characters.
Part of what made this story so enjoyable was the real-feel of it. While it was a fabulous story of true romance, love, and dedication, the main characters did not lead fairytale lives. It was refreshing to see the ups and downs all come together to create a seamless story!

Alyssa Bennett had it pretty rough as a child. Her mother abandoning her and her father being absent for the most part of her life. Now as a young adult in a not so happy relationship; Alyssa realizes if she wants to be happy she must move on. She ends the relationship and moves back in with her Nona. Nona is her grandmother who stepped up and raised Alyssa as her own daughter. Alyssa has a friend...handsome Landon who seems to be to good to be true. He's always there when Alyssa needs someone.
Cruising Susan's Book Reviews - Susan Sager
If you have never read any of Jennifer Sivec's books than you definitely should start by reading I Run to You. The story is heartrending, and gives you a feeling of what true love can be like. It also gives a message that a person defines what makes a family.

Jennifer Sivec truly gives readers a sigh happy book. There is always the drama, but that enriches the story three fold. I highly suggest you add I Run to You to your TBR list.

enjoyed this story so much. It was heart touching and heart wrenching. You completely feel for Alyssa. She doesn't know how to feel. One day she's on top of the world, the next she's knocked completely off of her feet. With life long insecurities embedded deep within her, no wonder she pushes people away. She can be heartlessly cold at times, but when she is doing it you can completely see why.
Pick up this book. It's such a sweet read that will strike a cord in your heart.
Amazon.com - Sandra Love
I read this book for her blog tour, and I quite enjoyed it. It was really believable and real. It was also an emotional read, I cried a lot in this book and I could relate to the main character Aylissa. This book was definitely a page turner and an edge of your seat type of book. I am so glad I was able to read this book. I really love the authors writing style. Great job Jennifer.
