Review of Run to You by Rachel Gibson

Summary courtesy of Goodreads:

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

My Review: 

This is the second book of Rachel Gibson's that I have read and although it had a great story to it and the same humor as "Nothing But Trouble" it wasn't my favorite. I really enjoyed the humor and relationship that Rachel built between Stella and Beau. However, I felt that she spent too much of the story following them on the road trip to meet Stella's sister. It made the book drag on and at times made it difficult to read because I lost interest.

Although I may have not liked the pace of the story I did enjoy the book when it got to the second half of the book. I think Rachel did a great job of incorporating Stella's sister into the story. She kind of showed how although her father may have spent more time with Sadie that it didn't mean they had the best relationship.In addition, I liked how she talked about the relationship between Beau and his brother Blake. Lastly, I enjoyed the way she brought Stella and Beau back together in the end. She didn't make it easy which some authors might have done. 

Even though this book was not my favorite I am glad that I completely read it because if i didn't I wouldn't have gotten to read the best part of the book. The end :)
