Release Date: April 2013
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.
Brandee’s Review:I want to start off by saying how excited I was to hear that Priscilla Glenn was releasing a new novel. I became a BIG fan of Priscilla’s after reading her first novel “Back to You”, which is one of my favorite reads. I love Priscilla’s writing style it is just so smooth and everything just flows. I am also a huge fan of a love story….and Priscilla has a way of writing one that grabs my attention and keeps me hopeful and leaves me keeping my fingers crossed that they get their happily ever after. “Love with your head, and you’ll be safe. Love with anything else, and you’re in big trouble”Andie is raised to believe to love with your head. So, Andie wants safety, she wants routine, she does not want to step out of the box. She has Colin, who seems to be the best boyfriend, he is attractive, he is sweet and he is stable…..BUT is she loving with her head or something else and is it enough?Ok, let’s talk about Chase…swoon… Colin and Chase are best friends, and they are total opposites. I loved watching the banter between Chase and Andie (and yes, she was a bit uptight!), but I loved watching Chase wear her down and the friendship/relationship develop while Chase helped Andie find herself…..even though she did not know she was looking. As we are back to a love triangle type of story, it was not really angsty for me…at least not to the point of frustration. Which is a plus on this one! The chemistry was certainly there between these two and I could not wait to find out when (and if?) they were going to act on it…..how far does their loyalty go to Colin? Is it worth the risk of losing it all to love with other than your head?This was a great book to curl up to and I would happily recommend it. Priscilla is one of those authors that I will jump to read anything she writes. So, if you have not read a book by Priscilla yet, I recommend that you do that soon! As always, I would love to hear your thoughts!
