REVIEW: RUNNING HOME

RUNNING HOME (RUN #3) BY CAMI CHECKETTS

In Cassidy’s battle against human trafficking there are two choices: run or be captured.

Cassidy's humanitarian mission takes an ugly turn when human traffickers attack. Cassidy doesn’t know where to run—home to America, into Jesse’s arms, or any direction she can to escape the traffickers. Innocent families are being ripped apart and Cassidy must decide if she’s brave enough to stop running and join the fight.







Read our Review for Dead Running (Run #1) and Dying To Run (Run #2)

So let's recap about Cassie's life and her running...

Cassie is unfortunate enough to win a place in a marathon but her new good-looking runner buddy might just make it up for it. And then of course we have super hot and mysterious (and let's not forget tattooed) doctor who's always there when she needs him.

In book one, human traffickers kidnap Cassie to try to get her father out of his hidding place. 
In book two,  the slavers are back and want Cassie. We also see how she must overcome what Jesse is, and what he's willing to do to help. 

In book three (That might or might not be the last one) Cassie is in Mexico fighting along Jesse and her father. Even Tasha is there to help them! But the Slaver are still in the game and Muscle Man is back too... 

This is probably the shortest novella in the series, but it doesn't disappoint. 
Cassie knows what happens in the world, she knows how the slavers work and she's seen the people in the villages and how everything affects them first hand. She wants to be part of the difference while another part of her wants to be back in The States safely and with the man she loves.

Running Home is full of action. Cassie's friend are in danger. It's a race against time to free the villagers and save themselves. 

It's a super fast read that keeps you in the edge of your seat all along. What's beautiful about Cami's writing is that she can put in some funny moments and love scenes in the middle of such a tension filled page and still make it work. 
And what I really loved about the whole series is how between everything that's going on in their lives, Cassie and Jesse still have to go through normal relationships problems. This time, is about proving each others love. 

We have all the characters we love again here, and they all stay true to themselves, even the bad guys. 
If we don't get another Jesse and Cassie story I at least hope we get a Tasha one. She's really great.
