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.
Devney Perry did an amazing job with Forsaken Trail, and I loved this standalone enemies-to-lovers, surprise pregnancy romance!
The storyline was fantastic, and I loved the journey this author took me on. I’m a big fan of the enemies-to-lovers and surprise pregnancy tropes, so this book was the best of both worlds and right up my alley. The plot kept me engaged and entertained and wanting more. And although the ride to happily ever after was a bit bumpy, I was definitely pleased with the outcome to Brody and Aria’s story.
The characters were wonderful. I fell in love with Brody, Aria, and a few others. Brody and Aria certainly knew how to push each other’s buttons and rile one another up, but it was fun and interesting to watch them navigate the situation and their budding relationship. They had great chemistry together, and I loved how their relationship progressed throughout—even though there were some frustrating hiccups along the way.
Forsaken Trail was a must read enemies-to-lovers, surprise pregnancy standalone romance in the Runaway series, and I would highly recommend Brody and Aria’s story! Devney Perry did an incredible job with this book—and all her others—and I can’t wait to read the final standalone in this series, Dotted Lines!
