Release Date: October 27, 2015
Things are about to get rocky for Dean Wentworth and Willow Wade.
Willow Wade is used to living in the spotlight, with her father a famous drummer in the band Willow Creek—her namesake—it’s been a lot to live up to and oftentimes she doesn’t feel she’s enough. But there has always been one person she could turn to.
Dean Wentworth knows a thing or two about how crippling a name can be. His family is worth billions after all. But Dean’s always been content to do his own thing. Play his guitar. Work on cars. And geek out to his various “nerdoms”.
But when Willow turns up unexpectedly, he realizes maybe there is more in life he wants.
One trip will change their lives forever.
I received a ARC in exchange for a honest review.
First off I'll say I absolutely love this author. I've read and reviewed all her Willow Creek books and loved them. I was gutted when that series ended, so to have this new series start and see more of the Willow Creek boys but older and with families, well it was perfect for me. Micalea writes such beautiful characters who you immediately connect with and a story that will keep you addicted throughout.
I do love a friends to lovers romance. This is Willow's story who is Maddox and Emma's daughter who decides to go on a road trip with her best friend Dean. This isn't just your typical road trip though and both their lives will change on this journey when they discover what's been staring them in the face for years. The chemistry and connection between these two was electric and I was eagerly waiting for them to open their eyes and see what was right in front of them.
A well wrote addictive story of two people's journey. I can't wait for more from these lot of amazing characters.
Those bitches were gonna die.
That was a horrible thing to say about my so-called ‘friends’—and I used the word friends loosely, because true friends wouldn’t ditch you the day of your scheduled road trip because they’d rather be sunbathing in the Hamptons.
The fucking Hamptons.
I mean, how clichéd could you get.
This was why I hated rich people.
It also sucked that I was one of those rich people.
Well, I wasn’t, but my dad was.
So by extension so was I.
When you grew up with a rock star for a dad, cameras and eyes followed you everywhere. It was exhausting.
I couldn’t just be Willow.
I was Willow Wade.
The daughter of the famous drummer Maddox Wade.
People expected greatness from me.
I just wanted to graduate college without slitting my wrists.
