Title: Driving Me Wild
Author: Mia Carter
Genre: Contemporary Romance
All my life, I’ve been perfectly average. Compared to the rest of my high-achieving, type-A family, it feels impossible to stand out. While I’d love to make my big artistic dreams happen, I’m kind of stuck, thanks to a bunch of lame things like “affordable rent” and “keeping the internet on.” Dreaming doesn’t pay the bills. Freelance design work and part-time rideshare driving does. And it’s nice, for the most part. Finding a passenger’s thumb drive usually means reporting, returning, yay-hurrah-good-job-me. Except this time.
This time, I put the thumb drive in my computer. Hey, I’m just trying to be helpful! Suddenly a chat window pops up and the owner of the drive is bribing me to fly halfway across the world. Today. Turns out he’s the super hot fare I haven’t been able to stop thinking about…who just so happens to be Logan Weiss—the crazy-hot 29-year-old billionaire known as “the most eligible bachelor in tech”. What the hell am I even doing?
An absolutely adorable debut!
Chloe and Logan’s story was a lot of fun to read–sure, it’s fairly insta-love, but that adds to the story’s overall fairy-tale feel and they don’t actually make any truly life-changing decisions until the epilogue, after a more sensible amount of time has passed.
The whirlwind state of their romance (flying separately to Helsinki, where the bulk of Logan’s says were spent working meant starting a relationship got squeezed in where time permitted) didn’t leave a lot of time for basic get-to-know-you kinds of conversations, so the fact that their black moment was essentially caused by a misunderstanding pretty inevitable. The way it all came down really worked with their characters, though, and they both both took responsibility for what went down and worked to fix their issues, making one of my least favorite romance problem causers actually work in a logical way for a change.
Ms Carter’s writing made me laugh out loud more than once while reading–Chloe’s internal thoughts and her back-and-forth texting with Logan were especially funny. I can’t wait to see what she has in store for us next!
