Everything inside of him is screaming that he needs to run, he needs to go, he needs to escape.


Lane Warner is used to being overshadowed and overlooked.

After all, he’s the youngest brother and the most laid back one in the family. He’s the one known for going with the flow and not making waves, even when things seem to be at their worst.
Very few things in life have had the ability to rile Lane up and get under his skin. At the top of that list is his childhood friend Brynn Fox…no…Brynn Warner. The fact that they share a last name was the one thing that has the power to light him up and spin him out of control like no other. There was no calm, cool and collected when it comes to all the reasons why Brynn had to become part of his family.
It’s slowly killing him to keep wanting what he can’t have, so Lane sees only one way to stop himself from doing something they’ll both regret…he has to leave. Everything inside of her is calling out to find him, to follow, to bring him home.
Brynn Warner is used to being stuck between a rock and a hard place.
After all, she’s the daughter of an unrepentant gold-digger who never once blinked at being the cause of her daughter’s pain and suffering.
Very few things in her life have ever brought happiness and a sense of security. At the very top of that list is Lane Warner. She has unwaveringly loved the youngest Warner since the first minute she laid eyes on him. He was everything Brynn ever wanted and everything she knew she could never have.
Sometimes the right choice is the one that hurts the most and Brynn’s had to make a few that felt like they might be the end of her. When Lane takes off, one thing is clear, the only choice Brynn has is to go after him.

She’s going to bring her wayward cowboy home….whatever it takes.

Escape is a standalone novel, the third book in the Getaway series, which features the hardheaded and brokenhearted Warner brothers and the women who dare to love them. These boys are very good at putting the wild in wilderness.

For the first time in days, it felt like my world was set back to rights.
Everything was crooked and off center the minute Lane walked out of the house in Wyoming and disappeared. I couldn’t think straight. Every step I took was wobbly and unsteady. From the moment I opened my eyes, to the second I fell into a fitful sleep at night, it was like I saw things through a grainy black and white filter. There was no color in any of my days when Lane was gone. There was no joy or light. There was only a massive void where I knew I should be able to feel my heart hurting and my soul suffering, the way they always did when it came to the youngest Warner, but when he left there was nothing.
I thought I knew what it felt like to have everything inside of me freeze and shatter. When word came that Lane had been shot while trying to protect his niece from a madman hell-bent on destroying everything that was important to Sutton, I was sure I would never be able to breathe or feel again. That icy pain, that frigid fear had nothing on the numbness that followed when Lane walked out the door seconds after Jack dropped to his knee. At that moment, I knew I was supposed to focus on the man asking me to share his life with him, the one who wanted me for me, and not because he was driven by some chivalrous need to save me from my messed up family and tumultuous home life.
But I hadn’t been focused on Jack. All I could see was the resignation and regret flashing through Lane’s pale blue eyes. We were both reliving the moment another man had asked me to marry him. Only that time, Lane hadn’t been able to escape the outcome. He’d been reminded of it for years, every waking moment when I’d technically held the title of his stepmom. I was something neither one of us could get away from no matter how hard we tried. It was amazing how much one little yes could change everything.
Now that he was standing in front of me, looking much thinner and more haggard than he had even when he came home from the hospital, I finally felt like I could inhale again. Everything that was fuzzy and blurred around the edges pulled back into sharp focus. I could look at the sky behind his tousled head and see that it was the same stormy blue as his eyes. I could also focus on the lines of tension and stress radiating out of the corners of those eyes and the bruised, dark hollows underneath them. Without him, nothing felt like it mattered. There was no home. There was no peace of mind. There was no safety and security.
When he was close, the littlest things felt hugely important and essential. The twitch of his lips into a wry grin spread warmth that chased away the emptiness for the first time in what felt like forever. The heat radiating off of his long, lean body made my heart kick back to life. When his arms wrapped around me for a seriously overdue hug, I finally felt alive. Finally felt something other than the echoing loneliness and hollowness that consumed me the minute he turned his back on me. Even with Daye trapped between us, I still felt a tingle at every single spot where his body touched mine.
“It’s so good to see you.” I meant it with every fiber of my being. Looking at him, even as worn and as drawn as he appeared, settled something deep inside of me.

Retreat (Getaway #1) by Jay Crownover
Stars: ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐

Save a horse...

Another Jay Crownover success!! I bought the book because Jay wrote it and I knew it would be good. But I underestimated just how great it would be. I felt like I could feel the trees hitting me when Boss spooked and took Leo on an adventure! The plot is full of good guys, bad guys, and even good bad guys ;) There is passion, humor, and pain. And now a bit about the story...

Leo has been off since she discovered her boyfriend was married. So her best friend, Em, hauled her out for a wilderness ranch trek. At least she could ride a horse, but as a city girl she wasn't sure about living the cowgirl life. Only a few hours into the vacation and she has her foot in her mouth. A few days later she would kill for that to have been the worst experience. Give this new series a try, I think you will fall for the Warner brothers!!!

Favorite passages:
- “I’m good at staying on top of things that are a handful.”
- “Love isn’t logical or reasonable. Our hearts make no sense.”
- “Even if the trophy is gone, you still won it and that victory lasts forever.”
- I understood what a real catastrophe was now, and that there was no way to prevent chaos when outside factors were involved. The only way to live a life that was controlled and secure was to have no life at all ...

Shelter (Getaway #2) by Jay Crownover
Stars: ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐

We all need shelter from the storms in our lives!

Romance, remorse, passion, and mystery return in this second getaway novel. The details from the first book are all present to allow this to be read standalone. Set in small town Wyoming where your drive way takes 20 minutes to drive down, the Warner ranch continues as a working ranch along with a very lucrative retreat business. In Retreat, Sutton and Emrys leave things unfinished, but not for long in this wild ride from the hospital to recovery and back again. And now a bit about the story...

Sutton and Emrys went through hell the last time Emrys was in Wyoming, but she is determined to come back and make things right. At the end of Retreat, Sutton demanded she leave his hospital room, his demand was so aggravated you would think he was about to have a heart attack. But the reason he wanted her gone was shame. She hadn't protected her like he should have. At the same time she felt guilty for getting them in the situation. Once the lines of communication open and they reconnect the sparks fly. There is only one problem, people address turning up dead and Sutton is the prime suspect.

Favorite passages:
- I’d always been there for her. Until I hadn’t. I had never let her down before. Until I had. There was no way I could miss the heartbreak and betrayal written all over her face right now. My brothers were right. She needed to be protected from me and that made my gut twist and my injured heart tie itself into knots.
- I found the romantic equivalent of a fixer-upper, and once the rehab was done, I moved on to my next project.
- “Things aren’t always easy; seeing them through to the end is admirable.”
- She offered me the kind of shelter I never knew I needed.
- “I like him the way he is. I don’t need to fix him.”

Escape (Getaway #3) by Jay Crownover
Stars: ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐

You can run, but you can't hide...

OMG Lane and Brynn finally get their story!! The story takes place in several states where an escape plan to relax turns into a cross country search and rescue! This young love sure has grown up and now if they'd just talk about it! Several unexpected plots emerge, loved the surprises. Plus a cameo from officer Royal Cross from the Marked Men series, I love it when authors pull their different series together. :) And now a bit about the story...

Lane can't stand to see Brynn's response to Jack's proposal. So he runs. He doesn't hear Brynn say no. But when she chases him to California he quickly figures it out. As they are trying to figure out if they still fit together they hear a cry for help. It isn't until the next day they find the boy who screamed. And find themselves inside a huge scandal that threatens to be more than they can manage.

Favorite passages:
- No, there was no escape from love once it got its claws into you.
- if it ain't broke, don’t fix it
- She was my wounded bird with more than a fractured wing, and I knew it was going to be my job to teach her how to fly.
- “So, if you really, really want something you shouldn’t stop asking for it.”
- “It’s amazing what you can learn when you take the time to talk things out.”
- I was pretty certain my first trip to Vegas would also be my last.

Note: I was given a free copy and voluntarily chose to review this book. I also had already preordered it when I was selected to get an early copy, so you will also see this listed as a verified purchase.
