Author ~ Lily Harlem

Published ~  27th June 2017

Genre ~ Paranormal M/M Romance





When Jude is offered a lift to anywhere on the back of a handsome stranger’s Harley, he throws caution to the wind and jumps on for the ride.

Jude has a boring office job in a sunny but deadly dull Californian town. The highlight of his day is sitting home alone with pizza and beer. So naturally, when Neo wants to take off into the sunset, with Jude in tow, he doesn’t argue.

Neo makes up his own rules. Deciding quickly that Jude is the mate for him, he breaks into a beautiful beachside home pretending it’s his in order to impress the sexy man he’s picked up. He’s hoping things are going to get hot and sweaty between them real quick.

But the cops are onto them, and as Neo makes a run for it, Jude is hauled off to the police station. It’s not looking good, what started out so promising has now left a bitter taste in Jude’s mouth.

Will Neo come back for him? And if so can he explain why whenever the huge black dog is around, he’s not? And can he really throw his life into the air and see where it lands? These are all questions that Jude’s mind, body and heart need to know the answer to.

Reader Advisory: This book contains MM sex and anal sex.

Sue’s Book Brief

This is a short but sweet novella. With less than twenty thousand words it acts as an introduction to the Redwood Shifter series. Having said that, it is a complete story in itself, but of course, there is potential for more and to find out what happens next for the mated pair in the future. Fortunately we won’t have to wait long as #2 (Finding You) will be released in June/July. You also have the chance to read Chapter One at the end of this story. The third story in the series is due for release in September.

Run Away With Me is exactly as the title and blurb describe. A dog shifter (Neo) finds his mate in Jude and asks him to run away with him. And as Jude is attracted to this tall, dark, and handsome stranger he hardly gives leaving his mundane job and home a second thought before agreeing. The exciting events move swiftly from the start with not much background information on the two characters. We know Jude has been dumped by his boyfriend recently and his life in California is not particularly interesting. We find out a little more about Neo when they return to his pack and this also sets up the next story in the series.

So, this is a quick and easy contemporary paranormal read.  The story is written in past tense from Jude’s point of view. Lily’s writing is enjoyable to read and flows well, with plenty of erotic/intimate moments for Neo and Jude along the way. Yes, it’s insta-lust and insta-love for both guys, with Jude accepting that Neo is a dog shifter almost straight away, but that happens in many shifter stories. The ending suggests a HEA with Jude and Neo’s father accepting that Neo has finally found his mate.

The next story in the series is M/M and M/M/F as it involves Neo’s parents and the third person in their relationship. The chapter one except at the end of Run Away With Me includes a sizzling M/M scene.
