Run to You: Beau Junger and Stella Leon
(Military Men #2)
There's nothing like fleeing Miami to ruin a girl's day. Stella Leon's bartending gig was going fine until gorgeous ex-Marine Beau Junger decked her mob-connected boss, spirited her out of the city, and claimed that Stella's half-sister--the one with the perfect life--sent him. Now Stella has no choice but to go along for the ride... and seduce Beau's military-issue socks off...
The Marine Corps was Beau's escape from his old man's legacy of naval heroism and serial philandering, but no amount of training could prepare him for the day he looked in the mirror and saw his father staring back. The answer: swear off meaningless sex. Oh, and find a way to make Stella Leon quit being so damn hot…
So I’ve been in a bit of a reading slump. I’ve probably read 2 books in like two weeks, this being one of them. Even in my reading slump I enjoyed this book. Per the typical Rachel Gibson it made me chuckle and it was light fun read. Stella, is a bit of a late bloomer, she hasn’t found her niche yet as far as work goes and has never felt like she could live up to her sisters accomplishments. So when her biological father kicks it and some GI Joe of a man comes looking for her with a message from her long lost sister she is not having it. As with most of Gibsons female leads Stella is strong and she is sassy. She might not view herself as a strong female but she is a survivor who stands up in the face of danger and even to the hard assed Beau. I quite enjoyed Stella and her attitude, she doesn’t let much really get her down and she bounces back pretty quick even with the mob chasing her. I like the way she handles uptight Beau and gets him to relax a little. Beau seriously has a bit of a pole up his ass in the beginning. He is very rigid and well military. Little by little he starts to relax a little, but is still a bit uptight, but I’m sure eventually she’ll wear him down. Beau is not my favorite of Rachel Gibson men but I still liked him as a character. Stella, I enjoyed more she was funny and kept on trucking even when she’s lost pretty much everything.
In Run to You by Rachel Gibson you can pretty much look forward to some good laughs, likeable characters and a fun story. This was a quick read that I couldn’t put down, even though it’s not my favorite Gibson novel.
