Book Description:

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.

READ THIS BOOK!!! I have been looking forward to this book for such a long time. I read Back to You, her previous novel, and absolutely loved it. It was fantastic. I feel the same exact way about this book. Her writing style pulls you into the book and flows nicely. I definitely did not want to put this book down. It was told from Chase and Andie's point of view, which I always love. I loved Andie's character, and Chase was pretty amazing. Andie and Chase had real flaws, and real tramatic experiences that have hindered how they have handled their relationships. Their feelings were built up. It definitely was not love at first sight. They both learned from each other, and grew from being together. This wasn't a one sided ordeal. I suggest this book to anyone who loves a good romance novel. It is definitely one of the best books I have read this year. I can't wait until her next one, even though it's not coming out until fall *sad face*.

"Come on, English major, you've never read Dr. Seuss? 'Be who you are. and say what you feel, because those who mind don't matter, and those who matter don't mind.'"- Chase

"What makes you happy might not make that woman over there happy. But human beings have a terrible habit of thinking they know what's best for each other."- Chase
