a Love Unexpectedly novel

Over the course of one wild road trip, feuding childhood sweethearts get a second chance at love in this charming rom-com—a standalone novel from the New York Times bestselling author of Blurred Lines and Good Girl.

When Lucy Hawkins receives a job offer in San Francisco, she can’t wait to spread her wings and leave her small Virginia hometown behind. Her close-knit family supports her as best they can, by handing over the keys to a station wagon that’s seen better days. The catch? The cross-country trip comes with a traveling companion: her older brother’s best friend, aka the guy who took Lucy’s virginity hours before breaking her heart.

After spending the past four years and every last dime caring for his sick father, Reece Sullivan will do just about anything to break free of the painful memories—even if it means a two-week road trip with the one girl who’s ever made it past his carefully guarded exterior. But after long days of bickering in the car turn into steamy nights in secluded motel rooms, Reece learns that, when it comes to Lucy, their story is far from over. And this time, they just might have a shot at a happy ending.

Although listed as a title in the Love Unexpectedly Series, all books in the series stand alone.


A romantic road trip awaits in Lauren Layne’s Love Story. Lucy is on the road for the time of her life, ready to escape her hometown and fulfill her dreams. She’d rather not have her traveling companion, Reece, because he left her heartbroken years ago. Each seems to be the one that can’t get away, and the two week trip forces them to confront hard truths.

This book was a buildup of angsty second chance love story. There are a lot of things one learns when they are stuck in the car with the person that broke their heart. Ms. Layne does a great job building up the sexual tension, because despite everything that happened there was still plenty of chemistry. I loved Reece and Lucy, and this was a great addition to the Love Unexpectedly series. I enjoyed the slow buildup of this relationship, and this was a page turner that I could read over and over again.

Lauren Layne is the New York Times bestselling author of over a dozen romantic comedies.

A former e-commerce and web marketing manager from Seattle, Lauren relocated to New York City in 2011 to pursue a full-time writing career.

She lives in midtown Manhattan with her high-school sweetheart, where she writes smart romantic comedies with just enough sexy-times to make your mother blush. In LL's ideal world, every stiletto-wearing, Kate Spade wielding woman would carry a Kindle stocked with Lauren Layne books.
