From Here to You is a story about a runaway bride running from not only from a potentially disastrous marriage but the bridegroom who is abusive and dangerous. Now that Darby is pregnant, she’s looking for a new life in a new town where no one knows her. Surviving is her goal and the last thing she’s looking for is love. Trex, on the other hand, has other things in mind.
Trex, a former Marine, has moved to Colorado, also looking for a quieter life. While he’s ready for a less dangerous work, he will do what he can to keep Darby safe.
This is a hard time rating this book because there are things I enjoyed and others not so much. Let me tell you what I liked. I liked that Darby finally took a stand and put a stop to the madness of a relationship she has. It takes a lot of guts to do something like that. I love that she found a new life on her own and finding Trex who will do anything for her. What I love the most are the group of men Trex worked with including the firemen who came into the hotel. They were funny, and I found myself wanting to read more about them. I love the banter and the obvious camaraderie between them.
Here are the things that I didn’t enjoy. There was an insta-love that just didn’t work. Don’t get me wrong, I don’t mind insta-love, but the author has to make it believable. Trex’s instant love, instant dedication to Darby, and her pregnancy were a bit much. I was too fast, too soon. I feel like they barely know each other. While Darby was smart in many ways, she also was very naive. She was clueless about the people around her and Trex’s obvious love for her. I found myself rolling my eyes at some of her reactions or lack thereof.
I’m rating this book 2.5-3 stars. I think this series has potential and can be enjoyed by New Adult readers. Unfortunately, it’s just not for me.

I coblog and review here at Under the Covers and occasionally review for Hot Listens.I love to read PNR, UF, Contemporary, New Adult, and Romantic Suspense. Occasionally, I will venture to Erotica, BDSM reads and rarely Historical Romance. There are some sub-genres that I don’t always enjoy, but I’m open to stepping out of my comfort zone.For the most part, as long as there’s a hint of romance, I’m pretty much in.
