Forsaken Trail (Runaway #4) by Devney Perry

Aria Saint-James has planned the perfect getaway: sweatpants, takeout and two weeks alone with her sister and nephew. Nowhere on that list is wearing a low-cut dress and uncomfortable heels to attend a wedding where she knows neither the bride nor the groom. Toss in her nemesis, Brody Carmichael, and her road trip to Arizona is officially a bust.

But at least there is champagne.

She blames the bubbly for falling into bed with Brody that night. Enemy or no, the billionaire is irresistible in a tux. But after their one-night tryst, Aria has no choice but to cut her vacation short, returning home to escape his devilish smile, vowing never to see Brody again.

Except Aria gets a surprise a few weeks later—she’s pregnant. When he learns that she’s carrying his child, Brody offers Aria the chance of a lifetime. The catch? She has to live under his roof until the baby is born.

Either they’ll kill each other in nine months. Or discover love buried beneath their hate.

Aria gave me a small smile, but as we took another step, it changed.
Twisted. The fire in her gaze sparked even brighter. The mischievous
woman whose words cut like a Samurai sword was ready for the show.

Her hand let go of my arm to slide down the sleeve of my tux jacket.
Aria laced her fingers with mine as her other hand snaked up my chest.
She inched so close that her scent, floral and sweet, filled my nose.

That intoxicating smell scrambled my brain and I couldn’t tear
my eyes away from the curls in her shiny hair. I wanted to
twist them around my fingers, then take the strands in my fist and—

What. The. Fuck.

This was Aria. A woman who openly admitted she hated me
the way I hated her. An enemy. My assistant’s sister.

There’d be no fisting of her hair. No licking of her lips. No nibbling of her ears.

4 Stars

Another great read in the Runaway series! Forsaken Trail, probably is my favorite one so far (but I'm sure I said that about the last three books in this series). If you are a fan of enemy - turned - accidentally pregnancy - turned - lovers, then this book is for you! Oh, don't forget to throw in a sexy, wealthy and stubborn man!

Aria Saint-James has been living her life in Oregon - content. She loves her job working with flower and plants, has an unbreakable bond with her twin sister, Clara, and nephew, but there is something lacking in her life. 

Brody Carmichael, is her twin's boss and good friend. But he happens to be Aria's nemesis. She's thankful for everything he's done for Clara and her son, but she can't stand the arrogant man. And when she ends of doing her sister a favor, she entire life changes in one night. 

You guessed it - Aria is pregnant with Brody's child. 

Their story is all opposite attracts and opening themselves up to each other. As much as these two dislike each other, their chemistry and attraction was always there. Their story will take you on a rollercoaster of emotions, 
as these two navigate upcoming parenthood and feelings for each other. Broday and Aria learn from each other and ultimately make each other better. 

Up next is Clara's story and honestly I can't wait until she makes it to Cali!
