One jaded rock star. One sheltered classical musician. One hell of a red dust road trip...
Sheltered, coddled, gifted, Iris longs for something more than practice and performing. She wants to rebel, break the rules, have a hot affair, fall in love – to really live before happily committing to her classical music bubble. But her strict parents and her stricter schedule keep her confined to her gilded cage, even as she yearns desperately to be free.
Super star, successful, and sick of all of it, Kit just wants to stop. Stop the touring and the recording and the media and the bickering with his band mates. After two years on the road, he's coming apart at the seams. He has to slow down, calm down, clear his head – to really think before recommitting to his rock star lifestyle. But his manager and the tour schedule keep him locked to his super star lifestyle, even as he rages against the confinement.
A chance encounter in a car park leads to a snap decision and an enormous risk: suddenly Kit and Iris are on an extraordinary road trip together across Australia, making their own choices, breaking all the rules. But reality is chasing them more quickly than they can know, and soon Kit and Iris will have to decide whether they are just running away – or running away together.

Red Dust Runaway by Eva Scott Romance down under – Young Adult – Musicians but complete opposites make a road trip that changes their lives forever. Burnt out Christopher Edwards has had it on the road being lead singer of Steel Cutt so he makes drastic changes that lead to him being on the road with the support crew and THE non the road with a classical violinist who has also made a break from the future plotted for her by her father. The two have fun together seeing sights in Australia and take the reader with them. The main glitch is that Kris opts not to come clean with Iris about who he is and it sneaks up and bites him in the tooshie and that leads to a major break-up that only his bestie, Mick, can fix. This was a feel-good, fun, road trip that was taken by two twenty year olds with music backgrounds that have something to share with and learn from the person they are traveling with. It was fun for both…until it became dicey. It was well written and perfect for the age group it (I believe) is intended for. I tend to stay clear of NA and YA books so…am giving it a 3 from me though am sure others who read this genre might rate it higher. Thank you to NetGalley and Escape Publishing for the ARC – This is my honest review. 3 Stars
