In the courtroom, they’re rivals. In the bedroom, they’re . . . divorced. But could the road trip from hell lead to a second chance at love?
Aubrey Gates is the hottest divorce lawyer in Chicago, a barb-tongued stiletto with legs that go on for miles. When her cool gray eyes meet mine across the battlefield, I want her like I’ve never wanted anyone or anything. Then I remember who she is: the woman who brought me to my knees. The woman who destroyed my faith in relationships.
The woman I used to call . . . wife.
And she needs a favor from me, Grant Lincoln.
It seems my ex forgot to mention the demise of our marriage to her dear old grammie, and now we’re both expected to attend her ninetieth birthday party. In Boston. And because it isn’t already awkward enough, Aubrey and I are driving there together from Chicago. That’s more than a thousand miles of tension, heartbreak, and barely concealed lust.
A little piece of paper might say we’re over, but this road trip is the true test. I intend to get my wife back . . . and I won’t stop until “I do.”
What does a girl pack for a road trip to see her dysfunctional family and crazy grandmother while shotgunning it with a certifiable cat and the ex who should be running in the other direction?
I’ve been waiting for Grant and Aubrey’s story from the very beginning and it did not disappoint and was so much more than I could have ever expected.
This story was emotional, it had laughs and it was hot. Grant and Aubrey are two divorce lawyers, who also happened to be married to each other at one point. They’ve been divorced for a while, but there is still a connection between the two of them. Things left unresolved.
When Grant offers to drive Aubrey home for the holidays to visit her family and to celebrate her grandmother’s 90th birthday. Of course, Aubrey told Grant nothing would happen on the trip but with a connection between them it was impossible to ignore and there were able to slowly start to work through what happened at the end of their marriage.
I love Aubrey and Grant, their chemistry and their story broke my heart, but as their worked through their struggles and their past it will slowly mend your heart back together. If you’ve read the previous books in the series we got more of Max and Charlie and Trinity and Lucas, which was fun and led to some laughs throughout the story. Though, this is the third book in the series it can be read as a standalone.
