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.

 
Lucy lands her dream job on the other side of the country. Her parents decide to let her use their station wagon to make the trip but they want her to take her older brother’s best friend with her. Reece is the guy that took her virginity then turned around and broke her heart. She wants nothing to do with him.
Reece has the spent the last four years taking care of his dying father. He needs a break and a chance to escape reality for a little while so he jumps at the opportunity to go on a cross country trip even though it’s with the one girl who truly knows him. There is a lot of bickering at first especially since Lucy thinks he cheated on her all those years ago. But once they get past that, they spend their nights in secluded motel rooms. Will they finally get their happily ever after?
I really enjoyed this book. Lauren Layne always writes sweet romance with the perfect amount of chemistry. That holds true in Love Story. I can’t wait to see what she writes next.
