They can't escape the heat… Magdalene Deluca isn't the damsel-in-distress type. But if she has to involve a stranger in a dangerous chase through South America, she's glad Finn Kavanagh's the guy she sucked into her problems. Very glad. The man oozes sex and magnetic confidence. And since their connection is steamier than the sultry rain forest, why waste time resisting him? Finn's peaceful vacation is blown to bits the second Mags strides into view. For years he's ignored his family's pleas to settle down. Now he's falling hard for a blonde force of nature who's allergic to commitment. First he has to keep Mags safe as they search for her missing parents. Then they can determine if it's time to stop running—and take a chance on the wildest thrill he's ever known…
What I Thought…
• I requested Running Wild on NetGalley because I’ve read Susan Andersen before and I’ve always enjoyed her books. I didn’t really pay attention to the synopsis, which is why it was a surprise when Running Wild turned out to be more romantic suspense than contemporary romance. I like romantic suspense just fine, it was just a surprise for me.
• Mags headed down to South America to find her parents, whom she hasn’t physically seen in 12 years. This seemed like a bit of a stretch for her to rescue them, but that’s just my opinion. I really liked her, she was strong and determined and handled things a lot better than I would have.
• Finn got sucked in to Mag’s trip on a whim when things started to go south. He was your typical alpha man I’m here to save you. He blends in with all the typical romantic suspense heroes you read about.
• I enjoyed Mags and Finn’s journey to find her parents it was filled with misadventures and bad guy altercations. I loved how Mags’ job as a make up artist helped them.
•I thought Mags’ parents were a bit selfish, but what can you do?
Overall Running Wild was a fun read, recommended to anyone who is looking for a summer romance.
