Addie and her sister are about to embark on an epic road trip to a friend's wedding in the north of Scotland. The playlist is all planned and the snacks are packed.
But, not long after setting off, a car slams into the back of theirs. The driver is none other than Addie's ex, Dylan, who she's avoided since their traumatic break-up two years earlier.
Dylan and his best mate are heading to the wedding too, and they've totalled their car, so Addie has no choice but to offer them a ride. The car is soon jam-packed full of luggage and secrets, and with three hundred miles ahead of them, Dylan and Addie can't avoid confronting the very messy history of their relationship...
Will they make it to the wedding on time? And, more importantly... is this really the end of the road for Addie and Dylan?
I received this book for free from Publisher in exchange for an honest review. This does not affect my opinion of the book or the content of my review.
Once I read the blurb for this book I was very intrigued. A road trip with exes? YES PLEASE. However, this book is deeper than you realize.
The book focuses around two characters—Dylan and Addie—and a trio they are making to go to a close friends wedding. After breaking up nearly two years ago, Dylan and Addie are unexpectedly having to travel together with three other people. It’s hard, because the characters still care for one another, but the breakup, and honestly their entire relationship, was messy.
This book did have a sensitive subject for me. I won’t say what—except that you should read the entire book to get the entire story. I almost stopped reading it, but I’m glad I got the whole story and heard bother sides from the characters.
Almost the entire book was during the road trip. It was a bit tedious, but you get flashbacks from the past often and get to discover how Dylan and Addie met and the growth of their relationship and all up until the moment they break up.
It was a bit hard for me to follow certain parts of the book, because it has a lot of British slang that I’m not familiar with. I do also wish there was a little bit more steam involved, but you will quickly realize that this book isn’t about that. It’s about forgiveness and finding yourself.
Overall, it was an enjoyable book!
