What a thoroughly enjoyable, fresh and unique story this turned out to be! Grace had so much personality that I wanted to jump into the story and be her friend! It was frikkin delightful I tell ya! And a really easy read. It was emotional when it needed to be, but never heavy. Their personalities just didnt call for it and Samantha Chase nailed it all around with this one! Well done! ...more

All the heart and humour...

I had no idea when I started Finn and Graces story how much I would LOVE it. Steamy, funny with heart to spare, this was a road trip Im so glad I made with them both

They were having horrible, horrible, no good days yet things turned around when they met and started an adventure neither could have imagined. Grace was stoic in her shock and grief and Finn too handled his own setbacks with remarkable composure. From a practical point, they faced their road trip with

Loved, loved this book. Two strangers, one car and a five day road trip. This is the perfect read to take you to your happy place with many laugh out moments. A road trip that you can take in your house. Who doesn't want to visit Las Vegas! Loved the banter between Grace and Finn. Great sexual chemistry between Finn and Grace. Loved how Finn stepped up in the end. This is a road trip that you don't want to miss!

Drive Me Crazy is book RoadTripping series by Samantha Chase. And let me tell you in already crazy about this series!!!

When Grace finds out her fiancé is cheating, her future isn't as planned out as she thought it would be. When Finn's trip with his brother goes a bit crazy, Finn is left without his car. So the best option for these two of course a shared road tripping trip.

Sharing a road trip with a stranger, spending time with a compete stranger might not seem like a good idea, but for Grace

Road trip shenanigans ✔
Forced proximity ✔
Grand gesture ✔
Fun start to a new series ✔

Finn and Grace are both having a terrible day and just want to get home...too bad theres only one rental car. They quickly realize they have chemistry but neither is sure about a long distance relationship.

I really loved the road trip adventures and get to know you talks shared by Finn and Grace. The amount time of they spent together made it feel a little less insta love, although theres still an element of it

Each state shows you more of their personality and them getting other each other skin, however that begins to change as they come close to the end of their trip.
This book had me cracking up, with each turn of the page I was cheering them on. It is a great read from beginning to end.

If you're looking to find your smile, Drive Me Crazy is the place for you. Gracie and Finn light up the canvas as only Samantha Chase can. What starts off like a country song becomes the sweetest of romantic comedy. Two strangers on the run from heartache and life are finding that happily ever after is only a road trip away. Escapism at it's finest.

This is the first book in this new series and Samantha Chase has outdone herself with this one. This is the perfect time to start this series.

If theres one thing this author has taught me, it's that detailed behind-closed-door scenes dont necessarily equate to chemistry between the main characters. Chase's are all pretty much fade to black, but oh, my gourd, I can feel the chemistry jumping off the page and seeping into my heart. And that live spark between the hero and heroine are a big part in making me connect with the characters and become invested in their story.

If you are stuck at home, it is a great time to get lost in a good book. Drive Me Crazy is the first book in a new series by Samantha Chase. It begins with a bride escaping her nuptials and taking a road trip across the U.S. with a total stranger. Having taken a few road trips in my life, I could totally relate to characters, Grace and Finn. Grace is the passenger who wants to stop at every interesting thing they pass and Finn is the exact opposite. He just wants to get home to Atlanta as fast ...more

Yes, indeedy, this book certainly has ALLLL of the feels. My absolute, FAVORITE type of book!!!

I very much enjoyed Samantha Chase's "Drive Me Crazy," a cute, sweet, and fun novel featuring likeable, well-developed main characters, Grace and Finn. There was a bit of an insta-love feel to their relationship, which isn't my favorite, but in this case it worked for me because of the amount of time they had to spend together while driving cross country. The forced proximity gave Finn and Grace an opportunity to get to know each other pretty well in a short period of time, flaws and all.

What started out as the best day of her life turned into the worst! Grace couldnt believe she walked out of her own wedding, without evening changing from the dress! When she couldnt find a flight home for that night, she decided to rent a car & drive home. At least that way she wouldnt have to deal with the jerk she left standing at the alter. It wouldnt be so bad or so she thought before it started to rain & she found out the car rental just had one vehicle left - a pickup.

Crazy is right! I was going crazy with all the craziness between these two! Ugh! It took me a minute to get into the story and get comfortable with the main characters. Like Grace and Finn's relationship it got better as the story progressed. Finn was such a ridged, uptight, stickler to keeping a schedule that I was ready to throw him out the window! Except he was cute and sexy in that working man sorta way. Yum! Grace was more my style with the seat-of-your pants, fun-loving personality but, ...more

I read this book with a permanent smile. From the name, backstory, the dialogue, chemistry, adventures and conclusion I was entertained and happy. Finn and Grace are full of personality and I absolutely loved their conversations and how their relationship developed.

From the beginning of the book both Finn and Grace were experiencing some low moments, but the way that the handled it and the way they moved on from them was refreshing and of course full of love and laughter. Some scenes took me

This was such an excellent story to start off this new series. It was entertaining, so incredibly sweet, filled with sizzling chemistry, a bit of drama, and a lot of emotion as two strangers down on their luck make a connection on a road trip, that just might change their whole life.

There is definitely more to Gracie Mackie than meets the eye and I loved her story, and her journey. She is such a survivor, so caring, chatty, spontaneous and after what she has been through, flying by the seat of

This book was a perfect start to the new series RoadTripping, by Samantha Chase. This story was a fun ride from beginning to end and I totally fell in love with Grace and Finn. From their initial meeting at the car rental lot (with only one car left for 2 people) and following them through their adventures with Walmart, hotels, the food (especially all the tacos), the fun sightseeing and of course you cant have a road trip without the amazing music and seat dancing that goes along with that and ...more

Welcome to a new world! This is the Road Tripping series by Samantha Chase, who is one of my favorite-I -stalk- her-everyday writers. Drive Me Crazy starts this series with Grace, the disgraced bride to be, and Finn, the always right brother.

Grace found out just minutes before her wedding her fiancee had not only been using her, he also got his assistant pregnant and planned to divorce Grace after he got a promotion due to her help. When she decided to run, she just took off, dress and all.

Is there anything worse than finding out on your wedding day that your fiancé is cheating on you? Not in my opinion, but Finn Kavanaugh thinks hes having a bad day, with his car stealing younger brother. Then he meets Grace Mackle, and realizes she wins that unfortunate contest!
Since both need to get back to the east coast from California, they decide to share the last car rental and road trip it home. It can these seemingly opposites compromise and not kill each other in the process?

Drive Me Crazy is a super fun story with all kinds of other goodness to boot. Both Finn & Grace are having terrible, no good, very bad days, which has fate stepping in with a road trip, and it was just what the doctor ordered. Neither knew the other when it all began, but fate doesn't care about that so much at the end of the day. There was an emotional edge to it without being too much, many hilarious interactions, heat in spades since they got to know each other in very close quarters, so ...more
