Escape by Jay Crownover

Rating 🌟🌟🌟·5 stars


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.


Ok, lets get this out of the way first.

Question: Did i realise that this book was #3 in a series before i greedily asked for it?

Answer: No, No i did not

Question: Do i have to have read the other 2 to be able to enjoy this one?

Answer: Nope, but it might help as you will have a little background of the characters.

Okay, so going in to this book you firstly have the prologue, this was written in 3rd person and it really was done well.

You know that really uncomfortable feeling where you look around at everyone else to see what they are doing, and they are looking everywhere else but the car crash that is happening in front of you?

Should you stay and watch? Or just slowly back away and leave 2 people to sort out their mess privately? Yep, that feeling.

Lane Warner and Brynn Fox have been friends forever, really, since they were children, but they have always carried a torch for each other, although never really done much about it, well apart from that one time that Lane proposed to her, and she turned him down!

The story moves to duel POV, one chapter each, and i loved being inside their heads and hearing their thoughts, many times i was shouting at my kindle JUST KISS HER DAMMIT!!!

Lane is the baby brother of the family, always trying to make his family proud.

Brynn has had a tough life and has always just wanted to be loved…….by Lane.

With a secondary story intwined in this book, the couple are thrown together to help out a young boy with an awful past.

I really enjoyed this one and will be reading the series from the start to catch up with the other characters in the book.
