Overview

Rachel Gibson, New York Times bestselling author of Rescue Me, returns to Texas with a tale of what happens when a tough guy meets his match—and falls harder than a ton of red-hot bricks . . .

There's nothing like fleeing Miami to ruin a girl's day.

Stella Leon's bartending gig was going fine until gorgeous ex-Marine Beau Junger decked her mob-connected boss, spirited her out of the city, and claimed that Stella's half-sister—the one with the perfect life—sent him. Now Stella has no choice but to go along for the ride . . . and seduce

Beau's military-issue socks off . . .

The Marine Corps was Beau's escape from his old man's legacy of naval heroism and serial philandering, but no amount of training could prepare him for the day he looked in the mirror and saw his father staring back. The answer: swear off meaningless sex. Oh, and find a way to make Stella Leon quit being so damn hot . . .

Editorial Reviews

RT Book Reviews
“This lovely romance will charm your socks off [...] a light touch of humor and just enough conflict to make the story interesting while not distracting from the main theme. A real treat.” -RT Book Reviews, 4 ½ Stars, Top Pick! (October Issue)
Kirkus Reviews
Stella wants nothing to do with Sadie, the sister she's never met, but when Sadie's sexy friend Beau tracks her down, accidentally ruins her life in Miami and offers temporary sanctuary in a road trip to Texas, she has to reconsider.While he was alive, Stella's father, Clive Hollowell, made it clear he wanted nothing to do with her, so she can't generate a tear when she hears he's died. She's not too interested in what sexy Beau Junger has to say about her half-sister Sadie either, since the legitimate daughter never spared her a thought. She's definitely not interested in a trip to the Hollowell ranch, even when Beau tells her Sadie never knew she existed until their father died. However, after the sexy ex-Marine stops her boss—an angry bully with mob ties and some dangerous friends—from assaulting her, he convinces her to leave town and trek to Texas for a long overdue family reunion. The man seems as approachable as a stone wall, but their enforced togetherness and meeting with his mother along the way forge an intense emotional connection that surprises both of them, and which is complicated by scorching sexual tension combined with determined abstinence on both sides. Plagued by trust and abandonment issues, Stella is certain she neither wants nor needs a sister or a lover. So why does Sadie make her feel so special, and Beau make her feel so safe? Gibson's romance is light, funny, touching and sexy. With a fast-paced plot and characters that keep the audience engaged and connected, Gibson manages laugh-out-loud humor as well as sweet tenderness. A few quirky elements make for some "out-of-the-box" plot points, and an original take or two on hot, contemporary romance.

    Please b honest

    Yea I would have written a good review too if I had gotten the book for free!! Instead we all paid 6.99!!! for 177 pgs!!! I love her books & was super disappointed (does anyone else feel cheated) can I have my money back please. Based on quick succession of events, lose ends everywhere, abrupt & quick ending of book plus # of pages 177 (r u kidding me) this book should cost 2.99 - 3.99 if that!

    Run to You picks up after Gibson's Lovett, Texas book Rescue Me.

    Run to You picks up after Gibson's Lovett, Texas book Rescue Me. Sadie Hollowell discovers she has a sister her father never told her about and is now sending sizzling hot retired Marine, Beau to make first contact.

    The first contact doesn't go so well...
    Beau finds Stella working a bar in Miami and he just happens to visit on drag queen night. After being man handled by her sleazy boss, Stella is unexpectedly rescued by Beau who happens to break her bosses nose (not knowing her boss was a mafia member). 

    On the run from the mob, Beau tries different modes of transportation to get Stella to Sadie. All the while the sexual chemistry becomes a powder keg waiting to explode. Beau has more issues than Stella with her take things head on attitude. Each time an emotional wall is broken it seems it pops back into place. Stella being a 28 yr old virgin waiting for her perfect man and Beau being a 38 yr old celibate waiting for the right woman only hypes the sexual tension.

    I found this story LOL funny, I completely LOVED Stella's sense of humor even in the toughest situations. 

    Rachel Gibson writes characters that you want as your friends and drool worthy alpha males into heart warming stories that will titillate your mind and senses.

    I received this ARC copy of Run To You from HaperCollins - Avon in exchange for a honest review. This book is set for publication September 24, 2013.

    Stella was a pistol!

    Beau was asked to give Stella a message and than if he needed to escort her to Texas. Stella has never met her sister and is really nervous. Beau makes Stella's boss mad and some antics by his croonies ensue. Taking the journey with them and discovering what happens on the journey. These two seemed like oil and vinegar, but I loved how they bickered. I am a BIG fan of Rachel Gibson and she showed me again why I love her writing so much!

    I've ready every Gibson book and I've enjoyed almost every one of them. This one not so much. Was she in a hurry writing this book? Where was the development? It was a major disappointment. Too many of my favorite authors seem to be getting lazy with their writing and editors are just pushing this stuff through.

    There's nothing like fleeing Miami to ruin a girl's day.




    Stella Leon's bar tending gig was going fine until gorgeous ex-Marine Beau Junger decked her mob-connected boss, spirited her out of the city, and claimed that Stella's half-sister—the one with the perfect life—sent him. Now Stella has no choice but to go along for the ride . . . and seduce


    Beau's military-issue socks off . . .




    The Marine Corps was Beau's escape from his old man's legacy of naval heroism and serial philandering, but no amount of training could prepare him for the day he looked in the mirror and saw his father staring back. The answer: swear off meaningless sex. Oh, and find a way to make Stella Leon quit being so damn hot . . .







    Run To You continues the story from Rachel Gibson’s last ‘Lovett, Texas story Rescue Me the main characters from that book, Sadie Hollowell and Vince Haven. After her father’s death, Sadie has inherited his ranch, but does not realize until the reading of the will, that she has a sister that she never knew about. Vince has Blake, his friend from his SEAL days locate her whereabouts,with the help of his twin brother Beau. The twins find Stella Leon in Tampa, Florida; where she works as a bartender. Unlike Sadie, Stella has always known about her sister; but she assumed that Sadie wanted nothing to do with her just like their father who only provided financially for Stella.




    Beau decides that he needs to convince Stella into going to Texas to meet with her sister.

    Stella does not want to go to the meeting ,because she feels that Sadie is interested in really having a relationship with her. Beau saves her from her boss’s unwanted advances by knocking her boss out, the problem is her now ex-boss is connected to the mob and he and his thugs are not going to forget Stella and her hero so easily.



    Stella realizes that she needs a quick ticket out of town for her own safety, and Beau is her best shot at staying alive. He delivers her to the airport for a flight, but she has a panic attack when she realizes she is afraid to meet her sister and she is unable to get on the plane. He decides to drive her to Texas himself. What follows is a four day road trip that will bring them together in a very personal way.





    In the end this was a quick, light summer read that didn't pack much of an emotional wallop but you will definitely enjoy reading Run To You, if you want an easy read.

    I liked Stella and Beau. I liked Stella's bad sense of humor and how she owned up to her somewhat neurotic tendencies related to her family. I liked Beau's stoic-ness and how he fought his attraction and it was refreshing to see that he didn't think her bad sense of humor was funny. The bad guy plot was resolved rather quickly and the story could have been just fine without it.

    An Entertaining & Romantic Road Trip With a Few Flaws Along the Way

    Whenever you want a contemporary read with rapid-fire dialogue amidst an overload of sexual tension you can always count on Rachel Gibson to deliver just that. While this book isn't quite as satisfying as her earlier works there's still a lot to recommend it.

    Stella's always been on the fringe. She's the illegitimate daughter of a rich man who stood by while her sister got the finer things in life. Being ignored has made her think of herself as unworthy which has led to a string of menial jobs. Her latest is at a dive bar where she runs afoul of the mob. Luckily a mysterious soldier comes to her rescue to take her to the sister she's never met. Along the way this bubbly, talkative, yet slightly insecure young woman comes to count on the stoic man promising to keep her safe. In her new home where nothing feels safe she's relying on him, if only she can convince him that he's worthy of happiness.

    Beau's still running from his past with an overbearing and philandering father. It's made him cold as ice swearing off women until he finds just the right one. Doing a favor for a friend has him protecting a young woman who completely catches him off guard forcing him to feel things he's tried to keep buried. As they embark on a road trip the sexual tension increases with each mile that passes and two apparent opposites find themselves perfect for each other.

    Stella and Beau are like oil and vinegar at first. She's energetic, talkative, and quick to react while he's quiet and thinks things through before acting. We get to know Stella quite well which made her easy to relate to while Beau's quiet nature doesn't allow for a lot of background information, so I never felt as connected to him. Their journey is full of crackling verbal banter though and ultimately some scorching sexual encounters. The path to a HEA isn't easy though as silly misunderstandings lead to an unnecessarily drawn out conclusion. These are two likable characters, particularly Stella who's an independent breath of fresh air, who struggle to admit their true feelings after being beaten down for so long.

    The flow of the story makes for an entertaining read with a slow build-up from friendship to something more. While the mob storyline vanishes without a trace the storyline of acceptance, not only familial but romantic, continues pulling at the heartstrings until the very end. Though this is a sequel it stands very well on its own as another of Ms. Gibson's well-written installments with only a few flaws along the way.

    A Fun Read

    Ms. Gibson is always good for a fun read... Retired Marine sniper Beau is in the security business and Sadie sends him to find the half sister she never knew she had... Lots of fireworks later Stella and Sadie get together... Lots of extras in this book and a number of laughs and side stories before Beau and Stella get it all figured out... Hope there is another in the series because I would like to see what happens to Blake who just happens to be Beau's equally handsome twin brother... Light and fun reading...

    I am a huge Rachel Gibson fan and want to say I loved this book.  There were a few things that bothered me.
    1st, it just ended.  2nd, what about the bad guys ( don't want to give the plot away) it just seems a bit thrown together.
    I wish it was longer, then Maybe the ending could have been better
