THAT LINE. That line is at the 2% mark people and is what keeps me coming back to Meghan Quinn books. Good grief this lady and her crazy lines. They get me every single time. I'm ashamed I've had this book since October and have just now read it.
The blurb says it all. Seven day road trip, one girl, three guys in an RV that has seen better days. It's a special road trip mind you, which is why none of them could say no to it even if they wanted to. Where to even start with this review? I do need to protect some of the story lines, while gushing about how much I loved the book and characters. So here goes nothing.
"I fell in love with my best friend's little sister-there's no denying it. I've loved her for years."
Awwww!! And that is the crux of the storyline, the long lost love between Porter and Marley. They've been friends since they were kids, he's an honorary member of the family, yet she feels he walked out on her when she was at her most vulnerable. Marley has been doing fine on her own the last four years, however the road trip brings everything back front and center. There's no denying she still loves Porter when he's right beside her 24/7.
The road trip and belly laughs ensue. I would have finished this book much quicker if I didn't stop and look up all of the historical sites Meghan Quinn mentions along Route 66. At first I thought she was making some of it up, but nope, it's all legit and pretty cool. Especially the Blue Whale, I might have to talk the fam into going to check that out someday.
Along with Porter and Marley, we are also totally involved with Bernie the eyebrow wielding, president cursing dad and Paul, her metrosexual brother. The combination of these four is absolutely fantastic and I don't think I can ever look at those little pop caps you throw on the ground the same way again.
The book is well written from dual points of view as we travel the states with this crazy family. While a little predictable, the journey to get to the end was totally worth it and we get a nice epilogue to wrap things up.
Marley is a girl, she’s a blogger and she loves what she does. Four years ago a boy broke her heart. Not someone she’ll ever forget. On a clear sunny day, Her Brother and Father pull up in the old family RV aka Tacy. To do the RoadTrip that they’ve been destined to do! Their mother who pased away when they were younger, had planned this trip. And in honor of her, Marley’s brother Paul decides he wants to do it as part of his Bachelor party. Going on the road with his family and… you guessed it the best friend Preston. Not someone Marley ever thought she would really see again. Or cross paths with.
Let me just say.. Preston and Marley are probably one of best characters in a story. That I’ve ever met. I loved how Marley was with all of them. Yes, she could come off bitchy, but on the inside she was all heart, just like her mother. The series of events that follow this foursome, are hilarious but yet in a lot of ways heartbreaking.
‘.. But life isn’t worth living if you never put your heart on the line, if you don’t try new things. Pain can be short lived, ‘could have beens’ will live with you forever. Don’t live in a bowl full of regrets.”
This is the first book I’ve read written by Quinn. Just based off of this book, I can’t wait to read more from her. Overall, I can’t give anything less than a 5! I had a connection with these characters and seriously loved this story.
