Book Description:

Ever since the one time Andie Weber threw caution to the wind - and paid the price for it - she’s learned that it’s safer and smarter to live life playing by the rules. Now she’s got a great apartment, a steady job, and a wonderful boyfriend in Colin; he’s sweet, stable, and essentially perfect – except maybe for the fact that his best friend is Chase.

Chase McGuire lives his carefree, unstructured life strictly for himself. Dripping sarcasm and oozing wit, he refuses to censor his feelings or opinions for anyone, making no apologies for either and wearing his abrasiveness like a badge of honor. No one has ever gotten under Andie’s skin the way Chase does – and vice versa.

So when Andie and Chase find themselves forced to take a two-day road trip together, they are already dreading an inevitable all-out war. But as the trip progresses, and the undeniable friction that has always defined their relationship slowly begins to wear away their preconceived notions of each other, Andie and Chase discover they both have a lot to learn about life, courage, happiness, and the age-old battle between logic and love.

Review

If you where a reader last year one author would have hit your radar in a HUGE way . . . Priscilla Glenn oh my how I fell in love with her amazing use of words.

I adore how Priscilla is able to create the most heartwarming of love stories, this book will just make you feel good and want to smile and enjoy it. There is depth and character development that is something that is often left out of recent novels. 

Andie has the type of life that could be perceived from he outside as perfect, it is perfectly planned and everything is under control - but what happens when the good girl meets the unpredictable guy, the complete opposite of her? Will they attract or will they repel?

“I can't promise you that I'll never be am asshole again. But I can promise you that I don't mean it. And I can't promise you that I won't ever make mistakes, but I can promise you that I'll learn from them and do whatever it takes to make it right with you again.” 

Left to their own devices on a road trip sparks begin to fly and the Banter is enough to have you laughing to yourself with a huge smile on your face. The more they get to know each other the more their walls come down and you see what is underneath. 


“Are you gonna put your shirt back on?” she blurted out. 
Chase froze, looking over his shoulder at her with the most maddening smile. “Why? Is this bothering you?” 
“I just…” Andie sputtered, floundering through her response. “I mean, what if we get pulled over or something?” 
“If we get pulled over, this could only work in your favor,” he said, running his hands over his chest. 
Andie tried to stifle a laugh. “My God, you’re insufferable.” 


If you could see how much of this book is highlighted on my kindle you would be amazed, I think there is more highlighted than not.


“You look new right now,” he finally said.
“New?” 
He nodded. “Like you just discovered yourself.” Andie felt something jolt through her veins as he added, “It’s hard to explain, but I wish you could see it. It looks good on you.”


This book is not your typical angst ridden alpha male book but something so much more and that is what makes it such an amazing read, I cannot wait to see what else This author gives us as I am always left with such a good feeling after finishing one of her books.

An amazing 5/5 stars for this book and I am eagerly anticipating anything and everything from her in the future. 

4.5 stars
