There is nothing quite like a road trip in the summer is there? I love driving and seeing different places but with gas prices the way they are this summer, I will probably be staying mostly close to home. Which leave me feeling a little sad since every summer my family and I try to road trip somewhere either in Oregon or in the immediate vicinity. There are plenty of road trip destinations in Oregon but the gas prices are breaking the bank here!
So where does that leave me? Longing for a road trip of some kind—-enter this book! I thought this sounded like the perfect book to read this summer if you are stuck at home but dying to road trip. I am planning on living vicariously through this book and getting my ‘road trip fix’ with this one! But this one has so much to offer beyond just the road trip experience—-this one includes a fun little second chance romance for readers to enjoy and I for one am really looking forward to this one!
This author has a couple of other great romances under her belt and I cannot wait to check this one out! It is out now and already receiving a lot of positive reviews. It sounds like it’s going to have a very modern and relatable feel as it includes a podcast element and I think a lot of younger readers and maybe those who don’t read a lot of romance. So take a look and see if this is something that might appeal to you for your summer reading!
After a decade of silence, Dee and Ben reunite for a road trip they once promised to take. It’s going to be a bumpy ride.
Dee Matthews is the cohost of the smash-hit podcast Did I Forget To Tell You?, where she interviews family, friends, and past lovers. Nothing is off limits, except for one man (known on the show only as Name Redacted) who happens to be her high school best friend Ben. During their senior year spring break, Dee and Ben took a road trip to visit Ben’s grandma. They buried a time capsule in her backyard, pledging to return in ten years to open it. Then their friendship fell apart in spectacular fashion. They haven’t spoken to each other since.
Ben Porter’s life since that moment has been unexciting but comfortable, until his grandma reveals a family secret that flips his whole world upside down. Her dying wish is for him to stop doing what is safest and go after what he really wants. He starts by showing up on Dee’s doorstep with every intention of fulfilling their long-ago promise. Despite her reservations, Dee can’t say no. This trip could be her chance to give her listeners the Name Redacted interview they’ve been begging for–and finally put her unresolved feelings for Ben to rest.
As the miles fly by, Dee and Ben’s friendship reignites. But the closer they get to reaching their destination, the more apparent it becomes that their attraction to each other cannot be ignored. Their last adventure ended in disaster, and they’re about to find out if any hope of a future together is in the rear view mirror. (summary from Goodreads)
