Part One in the riveting romantic thriller about a family on the run from a deadly past, and a first love that will transcend secrets, lies and danger…

Sarah Spencer has a secret: her real name is Tessa Carson, and to stay alive, she can tell no one the truth about her psychically gifted family and the danger they are running from. As the new girl in the latest of countless schools, she also runs from her attraction to Tristan Walker—after all, she can't even tell him her real name. But Tristan won't be put off by a few secrets. Not even dangerous ones that might rip Tessa from his arms before they even kiss…

Action, Suspense, Romance and Swoon!

RUN TO YOU is a new serial series Harlequin TEEN is launching and if you're like me and unfamiliar with serials, they're much like your favorite T.V. show. Each episode is it's own unique story but continues the plot into the next week.

You know how sometimes you pick up a book (or a Nook in my case) and think you'll just read a few pages and then before you know it, you've reached the end? Well, that's pretty much what happened to me with this book.

Action, suspense, romance and swoon, Tessa's story pulled at my heartstrings in ways I didn't expect. All Tessa wants is for her family to be safe, to be able have some semblance of a normal life. But that's hard to do when there's a killer after you, especially one you can't see coming until it's almost too late. That's one of the reasons why Tessa spends most of her time trying to be invisible. It's just easier that way.

And then she meets Tristan. Tessa does everything she can to avoid him, but to Tristan, Tessa is all he can think about. His pursuit of her is sweet, respectful and exactly what she needs. Even her family starts to relax a little, encouraging her to give him a chance but Tessa fears allowing herself to care for Tristan will not only endanger her family, but him as well. That's not a risk she's sure is worth taking, but if Tessa's not careful, she may not get the chance to find out.

What Left Me Wanting More: I'm really glad I had the next installment in this series queued up and ready to go because I HAD to know what happened next. HAD.TO.

Final Verdict: Read it. Love it. The line for Tristan Walker starts behind me.

An emotional thrilling romantic mystery!

Clara Kensie knows how to write an emotional thrilling romantic mystery! It's a good thing that this is a digital book, I believe I would have ripped pages if it was on paper! I couldn't read fast enough, Tessa's story is so deep and personal. You will not be able to put this down and you will definitely be craving to get to parts 2 and 3 right away...

Tessa's whole life is based on lies. But she has no choice. The lies keep her and her paranormal family safe from the bad man. They must flee every time he gets too close. New names, new home, new school... secrets must be kept and the family rules must be obeyed: never be left alone, do not attract attention, do not leave any traces behind. No one can ever know who she is, or her family's powers.
No one.

And then she meets Tristan.

Can Tessa allow herself to trust someone outside of her family? Can she let herself relax and enjoy a little bit of peace that she has finally found in her chaotic world?

This is definitely a story not to be missed!!!
Stay tuned for my next review of part two, Second Glance, to be posted next week!!!
