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.”
I feel like I’ve been waiting for Grant and Aubrey’s story forever…so happy it didn’t disappoint!
It was obvious from their interactions in the other two series books that they still had *something* there, and I was dying to know why on earth they weren’t together anymore and how Ms. Meader was going to bring them back together–because obviously, they needed to get back together.
She definitely had her work cut out for her, because what was keeping them apart was a doozy. Something had happened in their past and neither of them had dealt with it well. Communication was very definitely an issue, and was continuing to be an issue in this book too. While this was frustrating as all get out, Ms. Meader did an excellent job of showing how their pasts helped to shape them and would continue to shape their future–until and unless Grant and Aubrey themselves decided to make some changes.
Which–spoiler alert!–they did, thank goodness. With a little help from a snowy road trip, some pot brownies, a cat which may or may not be the spawn of Satan, a little soul searching, and a lot of love. The epilogue had me in tears–so, so good!
I’m bummed to see this series end, but am really looking forward to whatever Ms. Meader has in store for us next!
