Run Away With Me by Mila Gray Book Blitz and Giveaway



Run Away With Me
Mila Gray
(Come Back to Me #3)
Published by: Simon Pulse
Publication date: November 28th 2017
Genres: New Adult, Romance

Emerson Lowe and popular ice-hockey player Jake McCallister have been best friends since third grade but just as their friendship starts to morph into something more, a terrible event occurs that heralds the end of innocence for both of them. Within a week, Jakeโ€™s living on the other side of the country and Emerson is left alone to pick up the pieces of her life in a small town determined to paint her as a liar.

Seven years on and Emerson is still living on the beautiful Pacific West island of Bainbridge, helping her family run their outdoor adventure company. The last thing she needs is Jake turning up, bringing with him old memories and opening up old wounds. But Jakeโ€”even better looking than Emerson remembered and on the cusp of a bright sporting futureโ€”seems determined to revive their friendship no matter how much Emerson tries to push him away and soon theyโ€™re in the midst of a passionate summer romance that neither of them wants to end.

But if theyโ€™re to have any kind of future, theyโ€™re first going to need to confront the past, a past that most people want to stay buried.

EXCERPT:

I hear a voice behind me.

โ€˜Need some help with that?โ€™

I spin around.

It takes a couple of seconds for my brain to confirm that itโ€™s actually him. That itโ€™s actually Jake McCallister standing in front of me and not a hallucination. My heart does this fierce smash and rebound against my ribs as though itโ€™s been violently woken from hibernation. I draw in a breath so big it feels like my lungs might explode, as if all that air is filling a vacuum and Iโ€™ll never be able to let it out again.

I hate this feeling. Hate the way the adrenaline floods my blood stream and tears sting my eyes. Hate the way my body reacts in a thousand contradictory ways at the sight of him, as though someone has plugged me into a wrong socket and fried all my synapses.

I have an impulse to throw myself at him but Iโ€™m not sure if itโ€™s because I want to hug him or beat the living crap out of him. I drop the kayak, my hands fisting automatically at my sides.

I watch the smile on his lips fade when he notices the set of my jaw. His expression had started off wary but now I see him swallow and press his lips together, something he always does when heโ€™s nervous.

I take note of that and at the same time notice a dozen other tiny, insignificant, monumental details about this new old Jake. I see the faded white scar on his chinโ€”the one I gave him and the new scar cutting across his eyebrow. Then thereโ€™s his height โ€“ we were always the same height but now heโ€™s tall. . . much taller than me. His dark brown hair is the same, though โ€“ unruly, untamed, falling in his eyes. Heโ€™s looking at me with the same mix of uncertainty that he looked at me the very last time I saw him.

I glance away, down at the sand. My whole body is shaking and I canโ€™t seem to get it under control.

โ€˜Em?โ€™ I hear him say.

My head flies up before I can stop it. No one calls me that any more. His voice is deeper, mellower. The inflection though when he says my name is still just the sameโ€ฆ and instantly something inside me starts coming undone. Jake always used to say my name like it belonged to him, and only him.
