Over the course of one wild road trip, feuding childhood sweethearts get a second chance at love in this charming rom-com—a standalone novel from the New York Times bestselling author of Blurred Lines and Good Girl.

When Lucy Hawkins receives a job offer in San Francisco, she can’t wait to spread her wings and leave her small Virginia hometown behind. Her close-knit family supports her as best they can, by handing over the keys to a station wagon that’s seen better days. The catch? The cross-country trip comes with a traveling companion: her older brother’s best friend, aka the guy who took Lucy’s virginity hours before breaking her heart.

After spending the past four years and every last dime caring for his sick father, Reece Sullivan will do just about anything to break free of the painful memories—even if it means a two-week road trip with the one girl who’s ever made it past his carefully guarded exterior. But after long days of bickering in the car turn into steamy nights in secluded motel rooms, Reece learns that, when it comes to Lucy, their story is far from over. And this time, they just might have a shot at a happy ending.

Although listed as a title in the Love Unexpectedly Series, all books in the series stand alone.

Lauren Layne is the New York Times bestselling author of over a dozen romantic comedies.
A former e-commerce and web marketing manager from Seattle, Lauren relocated to New York City in 2011 to pursue a full-time writing career.
She lives in midtown Manhattan with her high-school sweetheart, where she writes smart romantic comedies with just enough sexy-times to make your mother blush. In LL's ideal world, every stiletto-wearing, Kate Spade wielding woman would carry a Kindle stocked with Lauren Layne books.

Lauren Layne has become one of my to-go authors when I need a great love story that will warm my heart while making me smile and laugh.

And this book was everything that I expected! A really good friends to enemies to lovers story :)

Here are some of my favourites things:
- the road trip! What is the better way to force together two people that can't stand each other? A two weeks long road trip! Lots of bickering (just think about a different music taste!), but also time to remember the past and many small things about the other person;
- the flashbacks: I loved that we got the possibility to read about their past friendship, see firsthand what made them close and so special to each other;
- sexual tension: oh yeah, I always love some good sexual tension between the main characters :P
- the fact that even if they hurt each other, they still care for one another (see what happened in Miami)

The only thing that I would have liked is more dialogue and honesty about important topics that were the cause of their problems: it could have avoided incomprehensions and heartache! But I understand that life is life, people make mistakes, but the important thing is that they were able to explain themselves and reach their happy ending.
