Book Description:

Ever since the one time Andie Weber threw caution to the wind - and paid the price for it - she’s learned that it’s safer and smarter to live life playing by the rules. Now she’s got a great apartment, a steady job, and a wonderful boyfriend in Colin; he’s sweet, stable, and essentially perfect – except maybe for the fact that his best friend is Chase.

Chase McGuire lives his carefree, unstructured life strictly for himself. Dripping sarcasm and oozing wit, he refuses to censor his feelings or opinions for anyone, making no apologies for either and wearing his abrasiveness like a badge of honor. No one has ever gotten under Andie’s skin the way Chase does – and vice versa.

So when Andie and Chase find themselves forced to take a two-day road trip together, they are already dreading an inevitable all-out war. But as the trip progresses, and the undeniable friction that has always defined their relationship slowly begins to wear away their preconceived notions of each other, Andie and Chase discover they both have a lot to learn about life, courage, happiness, and the age-old battle between logic and love.

My Review...

For poor Andie she was so scared to be free that she created a cocoon around her heart and soul.  However, this cocoon was made from one bad choice and choices and beliefs from others.

"Na agapas me to kefali sou, kai that eisai asfalis. Love with your head, and you're be safe." 

It wasn't until she is forced to spend time with Chase that she starts to see things in a different light.

"Because we judge people by our own standards of happiness."

"It's still not your fault. But now you know better. You should never ignore your instincts. You don't have to do what other people tell you to do, but you should always do what your heart tells you."

Once Andie starts to open up her heart she start to see differently.  With this she has to let go of her past so she can move forward with her future.

Its hard to move forward when we hurt people in the process but sometimes that is the necessary evil for true happiness.

Priscilla Glen has a truly beautiful way with words and her outlook on life.  This is the first book that I have read of hers and it will definitely will not be my last as I am now a huge fan of her literary beauty. Bravo!
