Driving Her Crazy
Driving Her Crazy - Kira Archer
Cherice set the wrong time on her clock and is late to the airport for her flight to her sister's wedding. Making it more of a problem is her mom is a bitch and thinks Cher is a failure. Then her flight is cancelled due to the weather (it wouldn't have made a difference anyway since the doors were closed). It turns out Oz is in the same position. He has an interview in New York for his dream job. He gets the last rental car and since he is a nice guy, offers to share said car with Cher since they both are going to NYC.
I ended up giving this a 3 which is my average rating. There were several things that aggravated me (both Oz and Cher are judgmental as hell and make quick assumptions, Cher has NO backbone when it comes to her mom/family). But, at the end things worked out- if a little to quickly. I would have liked to read more about Cher taking ownership of her life and standing up to her mother. I did like the epilogue but would have liked to know how much time has passed (a year? 2 years?).

Driving Miss Crazy by D.J. Van Oss
Driving Miss Crazy - D.J. Van Oss

She wants to go places. He's got the car. If only things were that simple.
Widowed father Adrian Adams isn’t looking to change his life. He just wants to keep his seven-year-old daughter Charlie safe and happy. The last thing he expects is to suddenly lose his job as a driver for the Washington DC diplomatic community. Luckily, he’s offered a new embassy driving assignment, one that starts with a tea cup-and-tie collision with a clumsy, cute, and oddly charming Irish woman with a penchant for talking to squirrels.

Maggie MacNally always seems to fall short, especially when it comes to her family’s expectations. She’s bracing again for disappointment as she tries to forge a new life in DC. Then an out-of-the-blue summons from her influential grandmother offers her one last chance at success—a chance that puts her in Adrian’s back seat and on the road to a career in the family business of international diplomacy.

Is Maggie finally headed where she wants to go, or is her big opportunity just another wrong turn? Is Adrian ready to take a second chance at love, or is he determined to put on the brakes before Maggie drives him crazy? And what's with all the squirrels?

 

* I've got this book from NetGalley in exchange of an honest review*

 

I didn't have much expectations for this book. I thought that it will be just like other chick-lit books, fluffy, funny, over dramatic. But I didn't expect to like it as much as I did.

 

One thing that I liked the most about it was, that there were no instalove. The relationship between main characters begins with a friendship and it was so refreshing. Of course this book was fluffy, funny and sweet, but nothing too over the top and it is always a plus from me.

 

I can't say that it was perfect, of course there were some issues and the ending was a little bit too rushed.

 

Do I recommend it ? Yes.

  He'd believed in her. He had barely known her, buy he'd seen something in her that she hasn't seen in herself. He made her feel strong, powerful, like she could actually take control of her own life and do a good job running it.

I was so sure that I was going to love this before I started it but once again I let my expectations run too high. This was definitely a cute story with a really great premise but I just never fully connected or liked the main characters, Oz and Cherice. 

 

Both Oz and Cherice could be annoyingly stubborn at times. They were both also extremely sensitive. They seemed to have so many misunderstandings because they both really had a talent for blowing things out of proportion. While they were all of those things they also managed to bring out the best in each other and were surprisingly supportive of each other even though they were strangers.

 

This felt oddly like insta-love or insta-lust because they were not only getting it on after knowing each other after only a day but they also seemed pretty emotionally connected (no matter how hard they tried to fight it). They could both bond over the difficulties of their lives but I just never really bought in to their relationship.

 

Thanks to Netgalley and the publisher for the galley.

Driving Her Crazy - Kira Archer Driving Her Crazy is unexpected treat. Of course it's unrealistic but that what makes it so intriguing. Cher and Nathaniel are as mismatched as you can get. She's rich, he's not. She's classy, he's rough around the edges. Forced together due to circumstance these two are about to discover that life is full of surprises. Kira Archer has written an engagingly humorous story full of irony and feeling. Driving Her Crazy was gifted to me in exchange for an honest review and I am looking forward to reading more books by this author.

Driving Her Crazy - Amy Andrews Nice contemporary romance that had some interesting points about body image and the lengths women are pushed to for approval. Lest you think it's all afterschool special there is also some fun dialogue between Sadie and Kent, and Kent comes with some heartbreak and issues of his own. I'd give 4*s for most of the book but I found the ending a bit abrupt for my taste. I can't go from they've broken up over some real issues to HEA or even HFN within a couple of pages. Sometimes the category length makes me feel that way. But I still enjoyed the book and Sadie & Kent's journey through the outback and towards each other.
