Every Road To You (Espresso Empire, #1) by Phyllis Bourne
Every Road to You follows Tia, Director of a cosmetics company, and Ethan, a lawyer, on a crazy, but fun adventure across the country to find Ethan's living-on-the-edge grandmother, Carol, who had ran away with her long-time sweetheart.

This was a really fun, sweet romance to read. It had me engrossed all the way until the very last page. I love all of Ms. Bourne's books because she weaves such fun and interesting characters into an unforgettable story. Ethan is a complete worrywart about his a

In spite of the set-up in which the hero blackmails the heroine into accompanying him on a road trip, the heroine has a lot of agency in this one. She doesn't end up going with him because of the threatened lawsuit; she goes with him because she is in cahoots with his grandmother, and is thwarting his efforts to "protect" the old woman by interfering with her bucket-list exploits.

I've got to be honest here: Ethan's grandmother, Carol, may be my favourite person in this book. I would seriously re

The terrible thing about this book is that, at one point, the characters have the possibility to eat cinnamon rolls, and I was looking forward to that, BUT THEN THEY DON'T.

Everything else about this book was wonderful: the romance was nuanced and hot, the story was fun and unique, and the characters were engaging all the way through. Bourne brought a lot of thoughtfulness to standard tropes and archetypes.

The cinnamon rolls though. IDC that Tia makes up for it later by eating everything in sight

There was a story within a story. Great story telling. Get you a bucket list at any age and go on any wooden roller-coaster. Find your passion and or dream and live your life no matter what age. Carol Wright lived her life to the fullest. Carol Wright found the love of her life after everything was over and had a make-over that included red converses thanks to Tia Gray of Expresso Cosmetics and Spa. When Carol's grand-son Ethan finds out that his grand-mother has hit the road on a Harley for a ...more

Tia Gray runs Espresso Sanctuary. When she gives a makeover to a dear old friend, the transformation isn’t just on the outside, it’s on the inside as well. Carol feels young again and she’s out to do all of the things she’s been missing out on, much to the dismay of her grandson Ethan Wright.
When Carol decides to take off on a road trip, on the back of a motorcycle no less, Ethan demands that Tia come along with him to find her and talk some sense into his grandmother.
What ensues is a road trip

I loved this book!I literally could not put it down. I was so drawn into the characters I felt like I was on the highways with them. I laughed so much with this story and had a little tear as well. Grandma was a trip, but I could see me doing the same thing. Bucket list here I come! If you've not read "Every Road to You", what are you waiting for, GO GET IT! It's a great read. Ms. Phyllis, I can't wait til the second one comes out. Great book, great read!

Recommends it for: any one who like romance novels!
I enjoyed the writing style of Ms. Bourne; details and descriptive words that allowed me to picture the story line in my head were a very welcome treat. Being a white, middle-aged woman, I can honestly say women of all ages and colors would appreciate this adventure! I was pleased to receive this book from a goodreads giveaway!

Phyllis Bourne is an amazing talent, with the ability to create strong, lovable characters that you can't help but root for! By the time I finished Every Road to You, I felt like I'd been on vacation along with the characters...and I'm now craving a road trip to Metropolis! I highly recommend this book.

The clique opposite attract has never been clearer than when reading spa owner Tia Gray and Lawyer Ethan Wright story. As they embark on an adventure each for very different reasons they learn to respect and listen to each other. There were some very funny moments as well as some scary ones in this story. The back drop story of Carol and Glenn will restore you belief in lover everlasting.

This was another fun read by Phyllis Bourne. Who would have ever thought how much fun Ethan and Tia would have chasing Ethan's grandma, Carol and her male friend Glenn across country while she completes her bucket list. I fully enjoyed this story and I can't wait to read more about the Espresso Empire.

I just finished reading Every Road to You by Phyllis Bourne. I loved it! It was a great story about Tia and Ethan. The building of their relationship as they following his grandmother who is on an motorcycle ride across the country fulfilling her bucket list was beautiful. I can't wait to read the second book in the series.

Wow, this book was just excellent. if you love a good romance novel this is most definitely the book for you. Tia and Ethan's story was cute and funny how they finished each other's sentences.

Love the book!
From his description, instead of him blackmailing me to go and round up his grandmother; I probably would have blackmailed him into taking me along for the ride, but not to find his grandmother.

This was a fun read. I especially LOVED the grandmother and her neighbor - hilarious! The main characters were likeable, but in my opinion - it was the grandmother's character that made the story enjoyable.
