Ellie is not a serious relationship kind of girl. She’s perfectly happy with her friends, her parties, and her meaningless hook-ups. In her experience, anything more than that leads to trouble. All she has to do is look at her mother to be sure of that. 

Fred has made a career out of worrying. He worries about his parents, his burn-out sister, his screw-up best friend. When he starts hooking up with Ellie, he’s ready for nothing more than some no-pressure, worry-free fun. Which is just the way Ellie likes it. So long as they stick to the plan, both can get out unscathed. So long as they stick to the plan, both can get what they want. 

But life has a way of messing with the best of plans… 

My Review

Escape with you is the second book in a companion novel series. The first book, Escape In You, does not need to be read first.

First off…can I just say how much I love Fred. I really liked him in the first book to. He is so unlike most of the other book boyfriends you may have. He is kind of nerdy, really responsible and so so sweet.

Fred it a man who takes on the responsibilities of everyone around him. He worries about everyone and will do whatever he can to help those he loves out. He worries about his best friend Jett with his drinking/depression, his parents and their house/business and his sister and all her issues. He doesn’t know how much more he can take before everything comes crashing down.

That is until the tough bad girl with deep blue highlights and a body covered in tattoos enters his life. She is the complete opposite of Fred in every way but they are exactly who the other needs. What starts out as spending time together because their best friends are dating slowly turns into more.

But the word “more” has different meaning for Ellie and Fred. To Fred it’s everything. He feels so connected to Ellie and will do whatever to be able to spend time with her. She takes away the weight on his shoulders and shows him how to relax and just “let go”. He will agree to anything as long as she stays in his life. But Ellie is a free spirit. She doesn’t do relationships and will not be tied down to one man. So to her, “more” means bed buddies with no commitment and the free will to see other people. She and Fred are friends to can enjoy each other both in and outside of bed without all the messy complicated relationship stuff. Just the thought will send her into a panic faster than a hot knife thru butter!
“How about we drop the charade…” 

He takes a stelp closer to me and I don’t like the look in his eyes.

“What charade?”

“The one that says we don’t mean anything to each other. I’m tired of it.”

Ellie has had to grow up faster than most, with a dad who left and a mom who can’t even take care of herself, Ellie has learned the hard way that in life, you need to be tough and fight for yourself. You can’t rely or trust on anyone but you when it comes to taking care of yourself.

But eventually things get to be too much for both of them. Ellie reverts back to the girl she used to be. The one who knew what she wanted and what she had to offer. She refuses to see what everyone else sees when it comes to her and Fred…and she will do whatever she can to prove to everyone what her relationship with Fred is or isn’t.

How long will Fred be able to sit by and watch the woman he has fallen for self-destruct? What will it take for Ellie to finally realize what she is doing to herself and see what she has right in front of her?

“Maybe that’s why I loved you so much. Because you were the one person I didn’t have to worry about. Because you were the person I could just let go with. The one person I could just be with.” -Fred
