Driven to (sexy) distraction...

Cher Debusshere hates being the black sheep of her posh, well-to-do family almost as much as she hates driving — which is exactly what she's forced to do when her flight home for her perfect sister's wedding is grounded. Fan-freakin'-tastic. Then a hot guy offers to share both the car rental and the driving duties... only to drive her crazy b

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.

Although I'm not giving this book 5 stars, it's only because I'm getting stricter but the fact I inhaled this book in one day means I enjoyed it. I mean really, really enjoyed it.

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

The hero and heroine's names--Nathaniel "Oz" Oserkowski and Cherise Debusshere--automatically give the reader a clue that these two couldn't be more opposite of each other than oil is to water, black is to white, Doritos are to trail mix...and from there let the good times roll! And that's what Driving Her Crazy was--fun. Pure, laugh out loud, did-that-just-happen? fun! Cherise is the black sheep of her uppercrust, moneyed family. The only ally she has in the family full of surgeons and lawyers ...more

What a cute, fun read! This novel centers around Cherice and Oz, two strangers who are pretty much complete opposites. What better way to see sparks fly (for better or worse) than to put these two on a long car ride together. I don't know about all of you, but I end up wanting to smother my own family after being in the car with them for too long, so I can't imagine what it would be like to be stuck with a stranger. Although, if he looked like Oz I think I could make it work.

This is the first book I've read by Kira Archer and holy rabies am I glad I did!

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

all around feel good book. it just left me smiling! my first book by Kira Archer I will definitely be looking for 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

This book was hilarious. I loved the banter between the main characters. This book is about following your dreams and being with the person who makes you happy. Oz or Nathaniel is a blue collar guy working 3 jobs to help support his sister and nephew. Cherice comes from a wealthy family but wants to help others but her mother has other plans for her. When a storm grounds a plane they both needed to be on, it turns out to be a road trip that will leave them wanting more. This is a fun read defini ...more

I loved the premise of this: 2 seemingly opposite people stuck in a car? Yes. Sign me up.

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.

Kira Archer did a great job hooking me in from start to finish. I expected a light hearted romance and this book delivered that and so much more! I love a quick wit and these characters certainly delivered. Sometimes, you just wanted to reach in the book and smack one or both of them!!

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.

This book started out a little slow but once Cher and Oz start on the road trip from hell it picks up and because a cute lighthearted read.

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

OMG I so loved this story! It was like girl from the 'right side of town' plows into 'boy from wrong side of tracks'! There was humor, sparks, heat, rain, drama, love, mud, and lots more. Cher was raised to always do what was expected of her and to always worry about what people think. Even though she moves away from her family, these lessons stay with her. She is forced to go home for her sister's wedding and even though she has put it off until the last minute she knows she has no choice. Well ...more

Ok, this is my first Kira Archer read, and I am dying to get my hands on more of her books!! Driving Her Crazy drew me in from the beginning, with an alarm mishap, cancelled flights, and rides with a sexy stranger. And let's not forget the sparks flying between Cherice and Nathaniel (or Cher and Oz, depending on which character you were talking to :) ). I loved that these 2 couldn't seem to stand each other throughout the book. It made the build up to their relationship so much better :). I love ...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
Cute and entertaining read about an impromptu road trip to hell with strangers who are thrown together (and couldn't be more different) when a flight to New York is cancelled. Not too sure about the instant-love connection even if the chemistry between Oz and Cher is obviously evident.

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

Driving Her Crazy is unexpected treat. Of course it's unrealistic but that what makes it so intriguing. Cher and Nathaniel are as mismatched as you can get. She's rich, he's not. She's classy, he's rough around the edges. Forced together due to circumstance these two are about to discover that life is full of surprises. Kira Archer has written an engagingly humorous story full of irony and feeling. Driving Her Crazy was gifted to me in exchange for an honest review and I am looking forward to re ...more

I really LOVED this one! The story is so cute and the characters were hilarious. The witty banter between Cher and Oz had me laughing out loud and drawing strange looks from the family! They are both on their way to NY from NC but when bad weather grounds all flights and Oz grabs the last available rental car, Cher reluctantly agrees to accept Oz's offer and share the car. This is one road trip neither will forget!!

Grab this one, I recommend it!

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*

Our girl can be a tad bit prickly, “since I do not have balls, I guess you’ll be waiting a long time. And will you please stop calling me Cher. My name is Cherice.” Nothing wrong with ogling your man and getting caught, “you’re welcome to stay if you want,” he said, his hands drifting to the button of his jeans. He popped it open and Cherice snapped out of it." This book was fun and a good read.

I usually enjoy a fun road trip misadventure, unfortunately this wasn't it. I didn't like either of the MCs. Cher is stuck up, rude, klutzy and in need of a backbone. Oz wasn't much better personality-wise. I suppose the author meant for Oz to be the charming, down-to-earth, nice guy who melts the ice princess to reveal her heart of gold. The problem is humble Oz isn't all that likeable. He's judgemental and a real pest towards Cher. They clash a lot! Too much. Their travel conversations consist ...more

This is the second Kira Archer book I tried (couldn't finish this one) and similarly to the first - I didn't enjoy it. There's nothing specific I can pinpoint. The personal conflicts of both MCs seemed superfluous to me and became quite annoying the more these conflicts seemed to repeat. And while I love that there's a good amount of dialogue, the inner monologues are still too repetitive and long (exhausting the reader) and don't provide much depth to the characters.
What I also find tedious is
This was ok. Nothing super mindblowing, but I quite liked that both of them had prejudices and both overcame them. I wished there was a bit more in the end what actually happened to them. But It was fun and cute.

Super quick read. Insta-love. Didn't really buy the instanteousness of their deep feelings and rush into a relationship considering the lack of respect they seemed to show for each other during the most of their first few hours together.
