Happy Tuesday from a rainy Southern California☔️

Today I am so thrilled to be part of the Blog Blitz for this wonderful book that I am so glad I read… it really was the full package! You can find my full review below📚💜




You have to fight for the ones you love.

Anna Davis has spent years terrified of her sadistic gangster boyfriend. Right up until she runs away in the dead of night, she’s frightened he will kill her. And she knows he still will, if he ever finds her…

As Anna starts her new life, she meets two strangers who will change her fortunes forever. Tanya Smith is a gorgeous East London stripper with a big heart. Anna loves Tanya’s attitude to life and the pair quickly become inseparable and business partners. And East End baron Freddie Tyler is everything Anna’s ex-boyfriend was not – he’s kind, caring and would do anything to make Anna happy.

But are they both telling Anna the truth about who they really are?

Just as Anna begins to see a brighter future for herself, her past comes back to haunt her. She could be about to lose everything – even her life. But she’s a different person now. She’s got something to live for and she’s not going to give up without a fight.

If you love Martina Cole, Kimberley Chambers, Casey Kelleher and Jessie Keane, you’ll love Runaway Girl. This fast-paced, gripping thriller will have you reading well after dark.

This book was previously published as Life Game.

Emma Tallon 2Author Bio:

Emma Tallon is a British, gritty crime writer, adventurer, Londoner and mother to a young son. Starting her career a few years ago as a ghostwriter, Emma crafted some of the most adventurous, edgy and heart-wrenching stories you can find on the shelves today.

In March 2017 Emma stepped out of the literary shadows and self-published her first book, Life Game. The book was an instant success, the results far exceeding anything she had expected. As news of Life Games popularity spread, she joined forces with W.F.Howes and the audiobook was launched in October 2017.

In December 2017, Emma signed a three book deal with publishers Bookouture. This included Life Game which was changed, re-edited and now re-released as Runaway Girl.

Drawing inspiration for her books from a mixture of her own observations and an active imagination, the characters Emma paints are colourful and larger than life. Her story lines are an interesting recipe of deep emotion and violent grit, that keep her readers engrossed.

With two more books in the works for this series already, Emma has many more stories planned out for the future.

4.5 Gritty Stars🌟🌟🌟🌟.5

This book was such a pleasant surprise…. had I actually read the blurb and known it was about London gangsters/ mobsters/The dark underbelly… I might not have picked it up and I am so thrilled that I did…. this book was filled with fabulously developed characters, an amazing plot and just the perfect amount of twists and turns…

Anna is running from her abusive boyfriend Tony…. Anna was impossible not to like, she had a quiet grace and strength to her…. Anna was very fortunate to have happened upon Tonya… who eventually became her flatmate, BFF, and business partner…. Tonya was fabulous… and I absolutely adored the friendship that these girls developed… one of my favorite things to see in books is positive female relationships….. another person Anna was fortunate to run into was Freddie…. I totally pictured Freddy as Sonny Corinthos on General Hospital(An American soap opera)… he is that lovable hot bad guy….

The plot had a few twists and turns I absolutely did not see coming… there were also a few unlikely coincidences, but hey it is fiction after all… The ending was perfection in my opinion… there is a part in the ending where I wanted to give Anna a standing ovation, you go girl! and I am so happy that there is a follow up, cannot wait for that! So thrilled to spend more time with Anna, Freddie, and Tonya (I really want her to get her HEA)

Strongly recommend to everybody who enjoys a good book with fabulous characters….

*** thank U so much too Bookouture and Net Galley for a copy of this wonderful book ***

One thought on “Runaway Girl by Emma Tallon #BlogBlitz #BookReview #booklove @EmmaEsj @bookouture

  1. Great review. I missed out on this one because I read the blurb. The whole gangster angle didn’t appeal to me but reading your review has gotten me tempted to go and try get the book. I am glad to hear that it surprised you in a good way. Sounds like a fab read.
