Frankie knows she can get anyone she sets her sights on, but just because she can doesn’t mean she should—not when the person she’s eyeing is Samara, the daughter of a southern Republican politician. No matter how badly Frankie wants to test her powers of persuasion, even she recognizes some lines aren’t meant to be crossed. But when Frankie learns she’s been on Samara’s mind too, the idea of hooking up with her grows too strong to resist. Only Sam’s not looking for a hookup; she wants—needs—the real thing, and she’s afraid she’ll never find it as long as Frankie’s in her head.
Forced to choose between her first relationship and losing the girl who’s been clawing her way under her skin, Frankie opts to try monogamy…under her own condition: 30 days of keeping things on the down low and remaining abstinent. If she fails as hard at girlfriending as she’s afraid she might, she doesn’t want to throw Samara’s life into upheaval for nothing. But when neither the month nor Frankie’s heart go according to plan, she may be the one stuck fighting for the happily ever after she never knew she wanted.

Title: Outrun the Wind
Author: Elizabeth Tammi
Series or Standalone: Standalone (for now, according to the author.)
Genre: Young Adult, Fantasy, LGBT, Greek Mythology
Publication Date: November 27th 2018
Star Rating: ★★☆☆☆
Outrun the Wind begin on the premise of a hunt; it is fast paced, intense and is positively exciting. However, it shortly looses this momentum following the first couple of chapters and falls into a sluggish narrative, largely driven by prose and the woes of palace life. After a promising opening scene what follows is a slow paced, unimaginative fantasy novel that is quite frankly boring.
Outrun the Wind is set in a fantasy world inspired by Greek mythology. Told in dual perspective we follow Kahina and Atalanta – a huntress of the goddess Artemis and a lost princess respectively. Kahina is trying to earn back Artemis’ favour by attempting to complete a dangerous task in the kingdom of Arkadia. It’s here that her fate collides with Atalanta, who is running away from a disastrous quest. As Kahina’s connection with Atalanta deepens she finds herself straying from the rules of being a huntress, by helping her devise a dangerous game to avoid marriage. But when the men responsible for the girls’ dark pasts arrive, the game turns deadly.
