Publisher's Summary

I was supposed to be partying with a bunch of celebrities in paradise this week, okay?

But then, I made one teeny, tiny error in judgement before leaving New York, and suddenly, the paparazzi expected me to give a command performance as “the other man” in their straight celebrity “outing” of the week.

Um, no, precious. So much no.

Instead, I did what any self-respecting, secret-keeping man would do in that situation: I cancelled my trip and fled New York to hide out in the last place anyone would look for me - a weird, little Florida island where nothing exciting ever happened.

Or, at least, it didn’t...until I arrived. 

Now, I find myself shacked up with my fake boyfriend Beale Goodman, Whispering Key’s most adorable, most enormous, most virginal cinnamon roll - a guy who rescues feral cats, believes in soulmates, and talks about happiness like it’s free for the taking. 

A guy who nearly convinces me, with every smile and kiss, that it is.

Stranger still? I find myself falling for the people on the island. Fitting in, instead of sticking out. Making, you know, friends. And for the first time ever, I think I’ve found something I want to run to, rather than from....

As long as I can keep my secrets from catching up with me.

Sooo good!

Wow. What else can I say. I love this book so much. Beale and Toby are so freaking adorable together. I love Tobys wit and sense of humour. Beale is a big teddy bear you just want to cuddle with. Their chemistry and banter throughout the story is off the charts. I laughed and cried!!

Michael Dean knocked it outta the park with narration. His portrayal of Beale and Toby were spot on.

Amazing book, read it or listen to it, I guarantee you will not regret it!

Sweet retreat!

This book is super sweet, with all sorts of ups and downs. Beale is a returning character from the previous book in the series. He just gets better and better. Toby is just enough sassy and snarky to be fun without being an annoying character. May Archer does a good job at creating characters and storylines that keep you interested from beginning to end. Michael Dean is his spectacular self- giving a fantastic performance as always. I highly recommend the audiobook!

Loved!

It is impossible to not fall in love with Beale and Toby! Watching Beale grow and realize who he is and what he wants is beautiful. Toby is absolutely the perfect match for Beale. He is also more than he gives himself credit for. I loved the connection and dynamics between these two.
They truly see beneath the surface and know who the other really is.
This story is funny, heart warming, sexy and so much more!
Michael Dean does an amazing job of bringing this story to life!
I can't wait for the next chapter in the Whispering Key series!

The Universe has a sense of humor

Welcome back to the town of Whispering Keys, where the locals will welcome you with open arms, spaghettios, and advice you should listen to.
Beale is content in life with his yoga, crystals, and horoscopes. He's waiting for the Universe to send him his soul-mate, a sweet, shy Capricorn who may be a virgin, like himself.
Toby is not, well, any of these things. The person behind the widely popular Aunt Hagatha advice column is sassy, outspoken, and NOT a virgin. What he is is on the run. He was caught on camera in a compromising position and the fall-out could ruin two careers. So he runs to his friend Mason who can help.
What he gets is Beale and Whispering Keys.
On The Run is a wildly fun story. May has a way of making characters so dang likable. Both Beale and Toby bring out the absolute best in each other and, from the very first meeting, had me laughing. I loved their banter, their teasing, and their wordless conversations. The chemistry is amazing and the sex is unbelievably hot. The residents will have you wishing you lived right there with them.

Sassy and sweet

I laughed out loud at Toby's internal monologues. He's so snarky and dramatic in a hilarious way, which just makes the magic of him and super sweet and innocent, big-hearted, Beale coming together all that more anticipatory and full of chemistry.

Beale is the best

I read this story when it first came out and absolutely fell in love with Beale. Toby is pretty awesome too. May writes a great story of these opposites pairing together. Then add in Michael Dean narration and the story is that much more fabulous. I enjoy coming back to Whispering Key and spending time with the Goodman's. I definitely recommend this series to others but especially this story. Book 2 just got that much more better.

5 stars for whispering key

Love love love Toby and Beale. They are so perfectly imperfect and wonderful! I love the Aunt Hagatha bits and Toby is one of my all time favorite characters. Charge your crystals and get right with your juju and open those chakras bc you need to listen to Michael’s wonderful narration of the couple finding love on this perfect quirky island! The side characters are just as much fun as the MC’s!
