#ReleaseBlitz: Wild Highway by Devney Perry


(Runaway #2)

by Devney Perry

Release Date: June 23rd

About The Book:

Gemma Lane built an empire. Not a small feat, considering her home as a teenager was a makeshift tent in a California junkyard. She’s dedicated her life to turning pennies into millions. She has power, fortune and prestige.

And she’s leaving it all behind.

Gemma is headed across the country in her best friend’s Cadillac when a detour in Montana reunites her with old acquaintances and a man who hasn’t changed. Easton Greer challenges her every word and tests her every limit because he doesn’t believe she’s really abandoned her riches. She ignores his snide remarks and muttered censure—until the day she’s ready to return to the wild highway, and Easton taunts her to stay.

She’ll prove to him she’s not just running back to her wealthy life, that she’s more than her money. She’ll unlock her guarded heart and hope that this time around, he’ll treasure the key.


I opened the door, a smile still on my face, and collided, headfirst, with a wall of muscle.

“Oh, sorry.” I looked up and my heart stopped.

The smell of leather and aftershave filled my nose. I looked up to see a pair of dark brown eyes hooded by long, onyx lashes. I took in the straight nose, the sharp jaw and strong chin. My gaze dropped to the full lips I’d tasted once, on a night eleven years ago.

I’d never seen a face as symmetrical and so beautifully masculine as Easton Greer’s.

Even when he scowled, like he was now, it was a wonder.

He’d gotten even more handsome. How was that possible? He’d transformed from a young man to just a man, man. Rugged and rough and sexy.

“Gemma.” My name came out as a growl in his deep voice and I tore my gaze away from his mouth, taking a step back.

“Hi,” I breathed, the air heavy and thick.

He took a step away, then another, his glare unwavering.

Easton cast his scowl over his shoulder and spotted the Cadillac. “That yours?”


“You’re staying here.” Not a question. An accusation. If he had it his way, I’d be uninvited.
I lifted my chin. “Yes, I came to see Katherine.”
His jaw ticked. “I thought we’d gotten rid of you years ago.”

Ouch. I guess he was still pissed about that whole sex in his room and waking up to find me gone.

But, good or bad, he hadn’t forgotten me.

My Review:

Wild Highway (Runaway, #2)Wild Highway by Devney Perry
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Wild Highway by Devney Perry is the second book in her Runaway series. An interconnected standalone that is told in dual POV between Gemma Lane and Easton Greer.

The premise of the series is that there were six kids in California who were homeless but found sanctuary at a junkyard and with each other. We meet them now that they are all grown up.

Book one, Runaway Road, began with Londyn making a trip back to California from Boston to return the restored and repaired Cadillac that was her home at the junkyard to the boy that shared it with her. Londyn is detoured in West Virginia and finds her happily ever after there.

Gemma visits Londyn in West Virginia and resumes the Cadillac's journey to California. Gemma ends up detoured in Montana where she reconnects with another friend, Katherine, from the junkyard and finds love in the surliest of men, one handsome Montana rancher, Easton Greer. Gemma has sold her company, made millions off the deal, and has gone from workaholic to trying to find her place in the world. Her detour to Montana was an attempt to make amends with Katherine whom she left behind years ago when she fled to Boston, craving a big city and a chance to earn and advance. Rekindling that friendship is the start to Gemma's healing process but there is still Easton to deal with.

Well-written and well-paced there is always the perfect mix of angst, romance, depth and heat in Devney's books. Another five star emotional read that was devoured in less than a day! Enjoy!
