Quarter Miles (Runaway #3) by Devney Perry

Katherine Gates has been in love with Cash Greer since the moment he saved her life from a runaway goat. According to Cash, she’s the little sister he never had, the greatest roommate in the world and his favorite coworker. They’re friends—best friends.

In the dark days of her youth, it was her friendships that kept her alive and made life in a junkyard worth living. So she’s learned to shove her feelings for Cash down deep, even if that means ignoring eyes that shine brighter than the Montana summer sun and the smile that illuminates the snowiest winter day.

Except with every passing year, the denial takes its toll on her wounded heart until one day Katherine decides to take an impulsive road trip to the Oregon coast. Alone. That is, until Cash cons his way into the passenger seat.

The farther they travel, the harder it is to pretend. And when she confesses her feelings, she learns that Cash has some secrets of his own. Secrets that will either bond them together.

Or rip them apart.

5 out of 5 stars

Quarter Miles was an amazing friends to lovers story! From the second I picked it up I was hooked! It flowed so well and I was instantly caught up in the emotion and history of Katherine and Cash’s lives. This was an excellent addition to the Runaway series!

I loved Katherine and Cash. I really liked learning about them and the amazing friendship they have formed over the years. I felt so much for Katherine and the position she was with how she was feeling. I adored Cash, he was so sweet. I loved them traveling together on the road as feelings build and come to life and the conflict they’re dealing with because of those feelings. I loved the build to it all and how it explodes into so much passion. The back and forth between them as they fight what they’re feeling was fantastic. There's tension, drama, playfulness, and heat. I also felt this raw and real emotion that had me choking up.

This was a beautiful story that was so engaging. It was fast-paced but full of great details that pulled me in. I loved the build to finding out Katherine's heartbreaking past, as well as Cash figuring out his feelings and them coming together. It was intense, emotional, and passionate but it also had this light, entertaining feel so I never felt overly stressed. I had a great time reading it and getting lost in their lives.

I love the details I learned about the Junkyard and the other people that were there with Katherine when they were young. Aria was wonderful to meet, she seems like such a fun spirit and I’m looking forward to her story next. Each book really adds an extra special layer to everyone’s lives and I love them all reconnecting.

Bottom line, I thought this was a wonderful story. It flew through it, loving the characters and was rooting for them to get to their HEA. Devney Perry is an excellent storyteller! I can't say enough good things, it just filled me up and made my heart happy. This was a must-read!

Quarter Miles by Devney Perry

“Why did you turn the air on?” she asked, looking above us to the open air.

“I’m hot.” Desperate. What would it take for her to put on a goddamn sweater? “Are you wearing sunscreen?”

“Uh, no.” She gave me a sideways glance. “Why?”

“You’re going to get burned.” Get the sweater, Kat. You know you want to.

“I’ll be fine. At the next gas station, I’ll grab a bottle for us.”

Us. Why did that word sound so serious? It wasn’t the intimate kind of us. There was no us. Not in the couple sense of the word. Did I want there to be an us?


That lightning-fast internal response nearly had me slamming on the brakes, turning this car around and going back to Montana, where the world was normal.

Kat was my friend. My best friend. Roommate. Coworker. Pseudo sibling. There were days when I’d trade Easton for her permanently. Okay, any day. There were plenty of ways to label our relationship and us was not one.

I could not—would not—tear down the boundaries that nearly a decade and firm family reminders had put in place.
