5 out of 5 stars
I love books like this. I went into it knowing it was a romance story and assuming it had a happy ending but neither of those things took away from the fact that the bread and butter of Hairpin Curves was the storytelling of Elia Winters. Winters was able to weave this intricate story of two friends who had a falling out and make it so that even though you knew there was drama and issues – that things might just work out in the end.
The two strengths of this book were the character building and the overall storytelling. Winters was able to tell a story that I wanted to read. She built characters that not only did I want together, but I craved the forgiveness just as they did and the closeness as well. That doesn’t happen to me in every story – but it definitely happened in Hairpin Curves.
Overall, I thought this was a great story that definitely had me smiling from ear to ear. The road trip part of it was really cute and the getting to know each person and how they showed how they loved the other was amazing as well. Throw in the great narration by Devra Woodward and it’s a homerun.
RITA Award-winning author Elia Winters delivers a sexy, playful frenemies-to-lovers road-trip romance.
Megan Harris had hopes of seeing the world, but at 25 she’s never even left Florida. Now a wedding invitation lures her to Quebec…in February. When her ex-friend Scarlett offers to be her plus-one (yeah, that’s a whole story) and suggests they turn the journey into an epic road trip, Megan reluctantly agrees to the biggest adventure of her life.
A week together in a car is a surefire way to kill a crush, and Scarlett Andrews has had a big one on Megan for years. The important thing is fixing their friendship.
As the miles roll away, what starts as harmless road-trip games and rest-stop dares escalates into something like intimacy. And when a surprise snowstorm forces Megan and Scarlett to hunker down without the open road as distraction, they’ve got a bigger challenge than making it to the church on time: facing the true nature of their feelings for each other.
