Review: Love Story by Lauren Layne

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 USA Today 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.

Kristine's Thoughts:

Love Story is the third book in the Love Unexpectedly series but can be read as a stand alone. Each book is unrelated to the other.

Lauren Layne continues to be one of my favourite authors in the contemporary romance genre. Without fail her stories always manage to give me the perfect mixture of sassy and likeable characters, raw humour and sexy time. Love Story was no exception.

When two young adults with an unresolved relationship from their teenage years are stuck in the same vehicle on a long road trip what do think is going to happen? You guessed it! A whole lot of arguing, skirting the issues and even more sexual tension. This book had it all and kept me glued to the pages. Although it was fairly predictable, the banter and tension was pure Lauren Layne.

Told from Reece and Lucy's point of view it wasn't hard to get to know both characters and to love them. In fact, it only took me a few pages to start routing for them. With Layne's signature whit and characters that speak what we all think, it was a truly enjoyable ride.

I can't wait to read the next instalment in the Love Unexpectedly series!
