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? 

What Some Readers Already said about the book:

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 Will Graces first love and "what if" from her past ruin her future? 1 December 2015
By Arctic Booklover - Published on

3,5 / 5 stars

What happend in the past will haunt Grace for years.
When Scott, the love of her life left her behind all those years ago Graces world fell apart. Brokenharted and on her way down the gutter Tony saved her, loved her and married her.
Gracie live a happy life (even with its ups and downs) with her husband Tony and their son Scottie, but when Scott suddenly appears in her life again, Grace is torn between the lost love of her past,Scott, and her everyday rock, Tony.
She can't deny what her heart truly feels, even if her conscience tells her otherwise she just had to meet up with Scott.
Will their long lost love for each other bring them back together and destroy her marriage or will Grace and her heart find her way back to Tony?

I'm not a huge fan of novellas/short stories. I'm a «book with many pages» lover kind of girl.I often feel like shorter stories are more rushed, that the story it self ends to fast,that the story is to «thin» and yes; I do feel it with this story. I feel that there is something missing.
With that said, you can't help being drawn in to this story. I feel for Grace. Scott is her «What if»

Have grown to like (and hate) Grace, Tony and Scott.
Something about this story felt so known, somewhat familiar, kinda spooky ..

This story continues when Scott and Tony get their stories told in their own books. (The Risk and The Protector)

4.0 out of 5 stars Runaway Love Triangle 31 May 2015
By Angela Bonnie Shockley - Published on

Runaway Love is such a great debut for Pamela Washington's career! She has a very sound direction she's moving in and that is UP! My only complaint is that I found Grace difficult to identify with. I understand she's jaded because of her past history. However, I found her to be incredibly selfish. Little Scottie though is a little charmer. I cannot wait to see where Washington goes with Tony and Scott's perspectives. That's bound to shed a whole lot of light on Grace and her topsy turvy relationship between the two men.

****FOUR and a HALF STARS****

I was not asked to review, but did so because I enjoyed the story! :)

Runaway Love really is a great debut novel. I enjoyed the author's style of writing. She grasped my attention and kept it. The problem I had was that it felt like the book was cut short, just sort of stopped, and I felt like there were large pieces of the story missing. Overall though, it was a good, easy read and I look forward to more.
