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.

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.

Lucy wants to go to San Fran more than anything in the world. She is off to start her career in the wine industry and nothing is going to hold her back. Not even, Reece. He was her first love, her brother's best friend, and the man who took her innocence. Now. Lucy is stuck on a cross country road trip with Reece thanks to her parents, and has no choice but to go.

Spending all  that time together is something Lucy does not want. She hates Reece for what he did to her. Reece is not too happy either. He knows Lucy was too good for him, he did everything in his power to destroy the only good thing in his life... now he is forced to deal with it, after hiding from her for years.

I usually love Lauren Layne books. but this is the first time I felt something other than love. It was more of a meh. I didn't love Lucy... I thought she was a little immature and annoying. I felt bad for Reece at times being trapped in a car with her.
