I had the perfect life.
Beautiful and loving husband.Three gorgeous little girls.
The only thing missing was the white picket fence. I really wanted that fence.
Three years ago, I lost that life. I lost my husband. And I lost myself. But, eventually, I found my way through the darkness. I’ve made peace with my new life. I have my girls, and that’s all that matters. They are my world. I have no illusions of ever falling in love again or getting whisked away on a white horse.
But then he came back into my life. On a freakin’ motorcycle.
There’s no way I’ll let him turn my life completely upside down. Absolutely no way.
The question is…
How long can I keep pretending that I’m happy with my life being right-side up?
Review: Rating- 3
Running on Empty is an average contemporary novel. There wasn't anything that stood out about it. I was waiting for that moment where it goes above what I expected, but it didn't. In fact it took until 83% of the way through to really get my attention, and it took until the very last page for me to fall in love with it.
The characters were pretty cookie cutter for romances. Even though they were cookie cutter Harlow, the best friend, was a hoot! She had me giggling so much.
There wasn't anything exceptional about the book, but I do have to say I'm glad I read it because the ending was everything I had hoped for!
