A Montana man always protects the woman he loves

He discovered her during a Montana blizzard, freezing cold, impossibly vulnerable, a little boy by her side. Undercover DEA Agent Beck “Trigger” Cooke is astonished to recognize Ashley Swan—award-winning actress, famous beauty—and missing for over a year. To keep her and the child hidden from a sadistic madman, he secrets the pair away to his isolated home.

No longer a prisoner, and protected at Hope Ranch, Ashley recovers and learns the tall, tempting federal agent may have a dark past, but it hasn’t destroyed his sense of honor.

As they shed past roles and find common ground, Ashley and Trigger can’t help but fall slowly, carefully, in love. But danger still lurks outside the boundaries of Hope Ranch, for until her crazed captor is brought to justice, and Trigger’s undercover past is laid to rest, none of them will ever be truly safe…

Escape To You is the first  book in the newest series by Jennifer Ryan. This is a story that is heartfelt and thrilling and has the same unique voice as her other previous books. In Escape To You, our heroine, who was a famous actress, has been held prisoner for a whole year, being beated and battered both physically and emotionally. The man who holds her is mentally unstable. He has a crazy fixation on her, and on a young boy of four years old. But when an opportunity arises, Ashley, grabs the boy who she has tried to protect as best she could, and run with him away from the madman whom she once called “friend”, out in a blizzaard, and was stumbled upon by “Trigger” . Agent Beck “Trigger” Cooke, can’t believe that the infamous actress is half dead with a young boy afraid of his own shadow. He treats their injuries, and soon it becomes apparent, that they are in some deep trouble and need help. Trigger is a DEA Agent, but with the right help, he can help protect them from a man who will stop at nothing to get to them….

What a story and I had such a blast reading this book, but of course, it is Jennifer Ryan and I just can’t put her down EVER!! Literally, I think I went without food and everything just so I could read this book, it was that good. But those that have picked up this author and enjoyed her in the past, know exactly what I am talking about. In Escape To You, we have a young woman, that even though she has suffered some horrific things, she still hasn’t been broken. She has courage and strength to run when she can and save a little boy as well. At first, this book might break your heart, seeing how desperate these two are just for a safe roof. Our hero Trigger, handles the situation just right both for Ashley and Adam.  Now little Adam, he is such a darling little boy, can barely speak a word due to his living conditions, but is bright and he made me cry. And the way Trigger is with him, is so sweet. I love how he is with him in this book. The romance is just delightful though. I love seeing these two come together. Trigger hasn’t had a easy past either. He has had to work as a DEA, and the things he has had to do in the name of the “law” still haunts him, but finding Ashley and Adam helps him heal and find his true self again. Ashley and Trigger fight for each other in gentle and forgiving ways, and their story is a must read for romance lovers. What is most special about their story, is seeing their vulnerabilities and strengths come out when it truly matters most, I love how well they balance each other, lift each other up  and encourage one another. There is a special intimacy that grows between them that is remarkable to see.

He never expected it. Never thought he’d be blessed to have something this good and right in his life. But here she was, lying in his arms. And even though he didn’t think he deserved her, he’d spend the rest of his life trying to be worthy of all she offered him or die trying. He’d wished to find the kind of love and companionship Caden found with Mia. He had it. Now all he had to do was hold on to it. Her. For the rest of his life. 

Escape To You is a love story that keeps you on your toes, emotional and riveting, a tale you won’t easily forget!!!
