“Riley Ingram, the girl who had never belonged to anyone, had finally found her way home.” 

No matter how far you run, the past has a nasty knack of playing catch up. No matter you’ve created an identity to start fresh, unless the past is erased, there cannot be hope of a future. Riley Ingram may have been “Running Scared” from the demons of her heinous past, but she has become a warrior at heart saving lives and becoming a daughter to Noah McCall. Paired with Justine Kelly and running ops with him for the past three years has given her purpose to love, hope to survive and a LCR family that covers her six no matter what. And working three years with Justin only seems to stoke the embers of desire and passion that refuses to diffuse between them.

RunningScared-LCR Elite

The past has come calling for Riley Ingram aka Jessica Larsen and the time has come for Jessica Larsen to pen the final chapter of her past and getting the answers she deserves of her identity and her roots. And we get a torturously amazing story of evil and danger, tenacity and courage, passion and love, support and family.

I shall forever remember the morning after Riley and Justin spent a night together. The emotional conversation between Noah and Justin will be one of my favorite scenes. The confessional night between Riley and Justin will forever be one of the most heart wrenching and tearful dialogues I’ve read. And Riley and Justin will be one of my top favorites of Christy’s character in par with McKenna and Lucas (Last Chance).

Christy Reece created another elite pair in Riley and Justin. Her attention to detail is amazing, her play of emotions and tenderness is a bullet to your heart, and her placement of supporting characters in the story only proves her prowess as a brilliant romantic suspense writer. A review definitely doesn’t do justice to her novels. Her books have to be read to endure the evil, live in the emotions, savor the passion and root for her flawed characters with her flawless writing!

The wheels have been set in motion for Aidan and Anna, and I cannot wait to see how Christy Reece choreographs their story of a lifetime!
