He supports his sister and nephew by working 3 jobs, and he is getting interviewed for his dream job. When bad weather grounds their flight and Oz gets the last the rental, he offers to let Cher ride along with him. With no other option, C ...more
Unfortunately this book did not work for me. Both Cherise and Nathaniel were too judgmental about each other, always jumping to conclusions about what the other one was wearing, the jobs they did, and well basically everything. Also Cherise had no backbone at all when it came to her family, and I just could not relate to her at all.
It did improve a bit after they had sex for the first time, but that was near the end of the book, and way too late to redeem them to me.
This is a "road romance" between two people from opposite worlds who discover throughout their journey they aren't so different after all. Our hero Oz or Nathaniel as our heroine insists on calling him, a true blue collar hero (my favourite kind in contemporaries) is flying to New York to interview for an interview for ...more

First, the story is a little improbable but not entirely far-fetched. While the mom in me screams "stranger danger," I'm sure if I was in Cherise's situation I wouldn't hesitate to take Oz up on his offer. Archer really makes the limited scope in setting work for the story. The quick-witted dialogue and sexual tension between the characters really carries a story that takes place mostly in a car. I like how the stor ...more
The scenario is a little scary (strangers driving up coast together) but we'll done. the banter, nagging and sexual chemistry is alive and wonderful. the play between social classes, opposites attract is very enjoyable.
Cher is fairly likable upper class lady who is afraid to go after what she truly wants and her family doesn't. this makes me able to sympathize with her and her ...more
Cher and Oz are more similar than they first think and it was fun seeing them try to figure everything out. Yes it's a bit predictable, yes it's a little clichéd, but it was a quick and cute read with a satisfying ending.
**Huge thanks to Entangled Publishing and NetGalley for providing the arc in exchange for an honest review**
Cherice Debusshere is the black sheep from a well to do New York family trying to make it on her own as a “personal shopper”. Nathaniel “Oz” Oserkowski is a blue collar worker from North Carolina that is trying to ...more
This story was cute and fun and exactly the type of easy reading I was looking for on this lazy Friday night.
I love a good story with two people from opposite sides of the tracks who fall for each other, even though the likelihood that they will actually work out is pretty low. The fact that they are basically strangers stuck in a car for 12 plus hours with nothing in common besides an undeniable sexual attraction to each other makes the story that much more interesting, and hot. Did I ...more
These two couldn't be more different and it shows from the trip from NC to the big apple. Cher's family comes from money and although she is a personal shopper she is the black sheep in her family. Oz on the other had has his fair share of struggles. He is helping support his sister and her son. He is hoping to get the job of his dreams but due to the weathe ...more
Driving Her Crazy puts me in mind of those rom coms with Drew Barrymore. It just has a laid-back kind of feel to it. It's a storyline similar to ones we've seen before. Two strangers are forced to travel together in order to reach their destinations on time because the weather has grounded their flights. Oz is working three jobs just to help support his sister and nephew. Cherise comes from a rich fam ...more
Cherice & Nathaniel aka Oz, meet at the airport and while they miss their flights from NC to NY due to a storm, Oz offers Cherice a chance to drive up to NY with him. Along the way they discover everything they ever wanted was sitting right next to each other.
I found this book to be a quick read but it was great in the sense that it kept me captivated from the first page to the very last word!!
Thank You to Kira Archer f ...more
Oz was an arse for quite a bit of the book, but I certainly understood the well-articulated pressures faced by Cher. The ending was rather abrupt and the epilogue merely hints at what had happened in the interveni ...more
Stop being so judgemental, guys! Jesus. Maybe I'm only so touchy about this because of 7 Cups. (Everyone should become a 7 Cups listener, by the way!) But damn, why do both the heroine and hero have to judge as soon as they see each other? What happened to not judging a book by its cover? I know it's going to end with them realizing that they are both so much more than they seem at first sight, but really? *rolls eyes*
Grab this one, I recommend it!
