Wrong Turn is up next in the
Chelsea Cooper thinks her best friend’s fiancé is the world’s biggest jerk.
She’s never really been one to make waves, but when it comes to that guy, Chelsea’s willing to make an exception. There’s just no way she can let her best friend make the biggest mistake of her life by marrying him. She’ll do anything to stop the wedding, even if it means teaming up with the one person who’s an even bigger jerk—the groom-to-be’s best friend.
Drew Russo thinks his best friend’s fiancée’s best friend is the prickliest woman alive.
Everything about Chelsea aggravates him. She’s too structured, too uptight, and too opinionated—especially when it comes to her thoughts on his best friend. When he’s tasked with keeping her away from their best friends’ secret wedding, Drew knows he’s in for one hell of a challenge. Never mind the days he’ll have to spend trapped in a car with the world’s most annoying woman.
The plan is simple enough—keep Chelsea from interfering with the wedding. But between distractions, delays and detours, they discover they aren’t the enemies they thought they were. And sometimes a wrong turn can lead you in the right direction.
Warning—This sweet, sexy, and laugh out loud funny romance is filled with all the most ridiculous road trip stories you can imagine and will make you realize sometimes being wrong can be a lot more fun than being right.

Fly Girl’s Review
Where to begin, I was so moved by this book. This is by far the deepest and most touching of all the novels I’ve read by Samantha. This one felt like she was writing part of my life’s story. She captured so much emotion all the way through from the first scene of aggravation to the last scene of tearful joy. I’m going to try not to spoil this for anyone, but I can’t make promises. If you suffer from toxic friends, anxiety, or introvert shyness this book is going to rip your heart out—Keep reading though because she puts it back in.
Chelsea and Drew find themselves in the car, not by happenstance but by machinations of others. Unfortunately for the others, Drew and Chelsea discover they really don’t know one another like they thought and on closer inspection discover they really like each other. Later in the story, this doesn’t go over so well with their toxic friends, but who said love was easy right?
Chelsea and Drew discover how they’ve let others create a vision of one another rather than forming their own opinions. The rest of the book is about how they deal with that and for each of them it is a little different. Drew tries to explain it away while Chelsea tries to justify it. So much time alone to discuss the subject gives them both the courage they need to confront the bullies in their life and make changes to take responsibility for their own happiness rather than letting others decide when they should be happy.
I’ve never seen a bully situation handled so well. She captured the angst, heartbreak, and sadness that a person goes through when cutting the final thread of a toxic relationship. I know this was a romance and it was there too, but for me the more important story was how Chelsea was able to end the toxic relationship with Drew’s support. Drew makes the final cut because he realized Chelsea is more important than the toxic friend is. He does it because he knows it’s the only way to make Chelsea realize he really does love her and she will always be the most important person in his life. I love that about him. He knew right away she was special, he just wasn’t sure why she spoke to his heart. When he discovers she literally speaks to his heart, he quickly hooked for good.
Chelsea discovers she’s stronger than she thinks and is a great person and friend even if her friends lack the foresight to see it. She also realizes her life isn’t too dang bad without them. But she knows it’s better with Drew, she just needs him to make her first and allow her to be able to give up her friends, but keep him. That is the crux of the issue if you ask me. Drew finally figures that piece out and Chelsea can see their future.
I wasn’t super thrilled with the toxic friend making a comeback, but I get it Samantha always gives us an HEA with a bow. She rarely gives us a cliff hanger, or leaves things unsaid. I do appreciate that, but just this once it would have been nice. I am totally giving this a 5 of 5 because, well…I think I’ve said it all.
