Welcome to Really Really Short Reviews were the name is long and the reviews are short! Because sometimes short is that much sweeter. (Also, because I’m really lazy!) And there might be quotes too (lots and lots)! (Because everyone loves quotes, right?)Run to You (Risking it All, #1) by Rachel Lacey

ONE LITTLE LIE. A WHOLE LOTTA TROUBLE.
Moments after meeting the most gorgeous guy ever, Gabby Winters promptly gets stung by a zillion yellowjackets and falls-not gracefully-into a stream. Yup, Ethan Hunter is trouble with a capital "hot," and Gabby definitely needs to keep her distance. Except in the small town of Haven, there's nowhere to hide from Ethan's sexy, infectious grin . . . and all the residents are conspiring against her.
At the center of the town's matchmaking is Ethan's grandmother, who's convinced their relationship is a done deal. Rather than break her heart, Gabby and Ethan find themselves cornered into pretending to be falling in love. The problem: there's serious sizzling attraction between them. And if this charade continues, they won't fool just the entire town - they might fool themselves too . . .
Run to You was a cute read and nice introduction to Rachel Lacey for me! There are many reasons why it was sweet including:
1. A super sweet grandmother/grandson relationship: Ethan and Dixie are the bomb. I love how supportive they are of each other. Plus who doesn’t love a sassy Gram.
2. Fake relationship trope: To make Gram happy, Ethan borrows Gabby to be his fake girlfriend, which of course leads to many a cute moments and a romance that might be more real than they ever thought.
If this were a real date, you would so be getting luck tonight.
3. Bromance: The trio of Ethan, Ryan and Mark. I love seeing these guys who are like brothers to each other work together to achieve their dreams.
4. A(n adorable) man talking to a (cowardly) dog:
But a sound drew her towards the kitchen, where she found Ethan sitting on the floor, a package of pepperoni in his left hand, his right extended toward the pantry.
“So tell me,” he said in a conversational voice, and goodness, he must be talking to Lance. She stayed back a moment to watch mesmerized. “What do you and Gabby do all day? Do you get to sit in her lap? I might be a little jealous about that, bro.”
Overall a easy breezy cute romance. Ethan and Gabby are sweet together. And even though Gabby drove me nuts with her indecisiveness and insecurities, she does finally work it out in the end and gets a backbone! I love the small town feel and the secondary characters are great. Looking forward to more cute times in Haven.
“Come on now, admit it. You want me just as bad as I want you.”
Her eyes darted to the side. “Fine. You’re not hard to look at.”
