Product Description

I’m damned if I do, damned if I don't.
How did I get myself into this complicated situation? I just wanted to be loved, to matter to someone, to feel like I’m worth something, to belong…
I grew up in foster care, never knowing where I came from or where I was headed. I met my first love, the love of my life, in a group home. Scott and I only had each other; he was my everything! He left with a promise to return, but he broke his promise and my heart. Scott shattered my soul and nearly destroyed me.
I wanted to die, but I was saved by a man who loves me, protects me, takes care of me, and worships me. Tony will do anything for me and accepts me just the way I am. I married him, but I can’t give him my heart; I can’t love him as much as he loves me… We have a son who I adore, and although my life may appear to be perfect, it’s not enough to make me completely happy.
I still yearn for my first love. When Scott returns, I’m faced with a decision… Do I choose what's right or what seems right, but is wrong? Do I choose safe love or runaway love? Someone will be hurt when my past meets my present…
This is my story, my life… Can I handle it?

5.0 out of 5 stars Runaway Success 28 May 2015
By Teacher Tina - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
This is Pamela Washington's debut novella, and I must say I'm so glad I took a chance on this new author! I hope you take a chance, too! I'm already really excited to see what stories Pamela comes up with next!

Runaway Love pulled me in from the very beginning and made my emotions go all over the place. One moment I feel sorry for the characters, then I really like them, then I hate then, and then I like them again! Throughout the story, I was sad, happy, crying, disgusted, happy, laughing, wondering WHY would she do that?!?, and sad, upset, and happy again. Phew! Yes, my emotions feel as though they've been on a spin cycle!

Grace, the main female character, has deep-rooted psychological trauma from her childhood spent in foster care. She never knew what it felt like to be belong to a family or to be loved or even to love until she meets a fellow foster teen, Scott, and falls in love. He ends up shattering her world, so when she becomes an adult and marries Tony, a man who truly loves and accepts her, she isn't sure how to handle that and can't accept that happiness. When her first love shows up in her life again, more drama ensues in her life as she is forced to make a decision...

Runaway Love is a quick and easy read, but it is not quick and easy to forget. Readers will find themselves taking sides, then switching sides, over and over again as Pamela peels back the layers of her characters. Each scene lets readers learn more about the characters and understand them better. Nothing is as it seems, and readers will be surprised by what happens and by the choices that are made.

I recommend this book if you are looking for an enjoyable quick read that makes you become involved in the characters' lives. This is a twist on the traditional love triangle where there isn't an obvious right or wrong choice...the heart wants what the heart wants, regardless of who gets hurt.

Runaway Love is told from Grace's viewpoint, so I can't wait until the next two books come out! I'm excited to get into Tony and Scott's heads and understand their points of view! I know Pamela Washington has more up her sleeve as she continues taking readers in this runaway ride!

Give Runaway Love a chance, let Pamela know if you're #TeamTony or #TeamScott! I'm #TeamTony, by the way - love him!!!!!

This is a story about past and present. We have woman- Grace. When she was young she fell in love with Scott, she loved him with all her heart, but life isn't pretty. He left. When he left her in her life came Tony, he showered Grace with attention and helped her whenever she needed it. And she fell in love with him. Everything looked perfect until Grace saw her first love. She wanted to meet him, to ask him why he never came back. And this is a place where I was gasping and screaming at my kindle! It sucked me in. This story has so much unexpected turns that I can't find right words to describe it! I wanted to hug Tony and slap Grace. Then I wanted to hug Grace and kiss Tony.

4.0 out of 5 stars Do I choose safe love or runaway love 10 June 2015
By Lmmm - Published on

***Received an ARC copy in exchange for an honest review***

"Do I choose what's right or what seems right, but is wrong? Do I choose safe love or runaway love?"

Grace is a woman who have felt nothing but loneliness and rejection until he met Scott in foster care. Scott was her first love- the first person who made her feel loved, understood and worthy.

"He brought light into my dark world. He brought light into my dead soul. For the first time in my life, I felt like I mattered to someone, like I belong."

When the time came for Scott to leave, Grace never doubted his promise that he would return for her- that someday they would have a future together full of contentment, stability and love. However, Scott did not came back and Grace had to rebuild a life and plan a future with Scott no longer on it.

When Grace's world shattered, she met Tony. He was a man who loves her beyond reason, a man who takes care of her and a man who will never leave her.

"... I know he saved me from my insecurities and deepest fears"

Ten years later, Grace is now a wife and a mother, happily settled and contented in life. Everything seems perfect, until she was again reminded of her first love and realized that she is still waiting for him to come back into her life. Without second guessing nor guilt, Grace contacted Scott and soon past issues and buried feelings were unravel as they saw each other for the first time after 10 years.

Runaway Love is a short yet unforgettable read. It will surely pull the readers as they join Grace in her roller coaster journey of choosing between loyalty to a man who has given her everything and desire to a man she must not have. This book made me experience conflicting emotions, there were times that I would just like to scream at Grace, Tony or Scott. However, there are still moments that I want to comfort them and protect them. Overall, RL is a wonderful debut for author Pamela Washington who was able to produce an emotional and page turning story that will leave readers wanting for more.

5.0 out of 5 stars I'm running away with this book 3 June 2015

Runaway Love

What can I say about this book, AMAZING. I was enthralled within the first page. You could feel the hurt, the negative self talk, and self hatred screaming at you from the moment you started to read. This book spoke to me, as the main character Grace, proclaims to be completely f'ed up, being torn between 2 loves and the needs and wants that every person desires, made this book a page turner. Pamela captures the realism of the emotional turmoil and crazy life/love roller coaster ride with ease. The feelings of Grace's complete psychological, emotional trauma she has felt her entire life has been achieved with not only realism but also makes the reader feel every hurt, pain, happiness and confusion, along with Grace, Tony and Scott. Runaway Love, made me laugh, tear up and scream at Grace, Tony and Scott, "Why in gods name...?"

I didn't realise that this was Pamela's debut novel, it reads like the author has been writing for her whole life and flows effortlessly. I recommend this book highly to anyone who loves, love triangles, and the grittiness of what love is about and being torn between the 2 great loves of ones life!

You will enjoy this book!

4.0 out of 5 stars Wonderful story about someone torn between two loves 18 August 2015
By Crystal Robertson - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition
**I received this book in exchange for an honest review**
Runaway Love is a novella about a woman named Grace who spent her childhood in foster care. The book focuses on life when she is 25 years old and married to a man named Tony. Her first love, Scott, left the foster home when she was 15, and promised to come back for her after he built a life they could share together. Now, 10 years later, she never saw him again, and is still heartbroken. While she loves Tony for being what she needed, she never truly loved him like Scott. She saw Scott in a magazine while grocery shopping and found out he became a famous soccer player in Europe. After finding a way to contact him, he comes back into her life, and a love triangle begins. She can't decide whether to keep her vows to Tony or be with her true love.

I give the book 4 stars.

I enjoyed the story a lot. So much, in fact, I wish it wasn't just a novella. I really wanted more detail about the story. After it ended, I felt sad that it was over. I saw at the end she is going to publish Scott and Tony's stories. I will be reading both of them.

There are a few things I didn't like, hence no 5th star. Over half of the sentences in the book ended with an exclamation point. I found it distracting because I was reading it strangely in my head. However, I did enjoy her writing style, and I thought it was well-written. I also felt that there were some strange time lapses during scenes. For example, Grace and Scott were ordering food, and then after a short conversation, the waitress took their plates away. It wasn't enough to make me dislike the book, but it was enough to make me flip back and wonder if I missed something.

Overall, I really enjoyed the story, and I will be looking forward to more from Pamela Washington. If you want a quick, fun read, check out Runaway Love.
