When desire gets this hot, you’d better buckle up…
Mary Daniels doesn’t let anything get in the way of her job acquiring rare artifacts for her wealthy boss. But this particular obstacle—huge, hard-muscled, unashamedly masculine—is impossible to ignore. Stuck in a cramped car with Brodie Crews for hours en route to their new assignment, Mary feels her carefully crafted persona—and her trademark self-control—is slipping, and she won’t allow it.
Brodie can’t imagine what secret in Mary’s past has left her so buttoned-up, though he’d dearly love to find out. Maybe then she’d trust him enough to explore their explosive chemistry. But he needs this job, so he’ll play by her rules and bide his time…until an enemy determined to outwit them strikes and he needs to get close—in every way—to protect her. Otherwise they could lose much more than a precious collectible. They could lose it all.
I had such fun with Driven to Distraction by Lori Foster. I closed my Kindle grinning from ear to ear. A rescue dog, character growth and toe-curling moments provided the perfect start to the Roads to Love series. I laughed, held my breath and devoured Brodie and Mary’s story.
First, I have to say Mary Daniels, has a really cool job. She works for an eccentric millionaire who likes to bid and collect pieces of art. Her job is to collect the pieces, make payment and deliver them safely. When her boss hires Brodie Crews as the driver to accompany her, Mary’s controlled little world gets turned upside down!
From their first very awkward meet to her attempts at hiring Brodie’s brother instead I knew I was in for a fun ride. While I don’t consider myself to be a prude, even I had my concerns about Brody. Sure the man curls your toes, but I wasn’t at all sure. Even as Mary unwillingly kept checking out his body. LOL. I will say that Foster soon had me swooning over this brother and his big heart.
Brody and his brother own Mustang Transport Courier Services. Jack, his brother is the suit guy and Brody handles deliveries. Ladies you are going to love these brothers, their office manager and their spitfire mother.
I not only loved Mary’s story, growth and the developing romance but Foster gave us an intense suspense thread, sibling teasing an awesome family and interesting secondary characters. Mary was wonderful and Foster allowed the reader to understand and connect with her. She is complex, confident in some aspects, defensive in others but a good soul. I love when I can picture myself having coffee with a character. We will make Mary’s decaf though. Now Brodie, on the other hand, is laid-back, unless someone or something he cares about is in trouble… then look out. Wait until you meet his furry friend, Howler.
Fan of Lori Foster’s Love Undercover series will adore Driven to Distraction. Brody sort of reminded me of Rowdy. We get a sneak peek of Slow Ride, book two. It releases in April 2019 and will be Jack Crews’ story.I had such fun reading, Driven to Distraction by Lori Foster. I closed my Kindle grinning like a fool. A rescue dog, character growth and toe-curling moments provided the perfect start to the Roads to Love series. Click To Tweet
