I enjoyed this book for many reasons. I liked that Driving Me To You was told from multiple points and not just the main character/characters. Instead we were able to get a bit more insight from the villain’s point of view as well as some of the side characters. Ms. Farrell did a wonderful job creating fun, unique, and likable characters! Verlaine, his friends, and Sam were all friendly, quirky, and interesting. They were characters who you’d want to hang out with and be friends with if you could. Even Gemma, who I didn’t care for in most of the book had redeemed herself by the end and I even liked her. That being said, Ms. Farrell was also able to create one of the best, most evil villainous character I have read about in a long time. It truly was shocking just how ruthless and heartless he wound up being, but because of that his character added a lot of conflict and drama to the story which I loved!
Driving Me To You was not your typical romance book. In fact, it wasn’t until the last part of the book before there really was any romance. Up until that point there had just been a lot of flirting. This book had a lot of action and adventure in it.
There was only one negative about this book that I could think of… (and honestly for a lot of people this wouldn’t even be a problem) However, for me because this story takes place in London there were a lot of terms and phrases that I didn’t really understand. Therefore, for me it was a bit hard to relate to the book at all times. I did appreciate that Verlaine was from Michigan and that did help to make it more relate able. But again I realize that would not even be an issue for a lot of people and it did not change the fact that I really enjoyed this book. It was an exciting, fun, and adventurous story!

I found this book to just be okay. Most of the book has zero romance in it. You really don't see any of it util the end. It was a little hard to get into the book and keep reading it. The book has a lot of sexual scenes between Paul and his boyfriend Scott. It wasn't something that I wanted to read because I just wasn't into it at all. I ended up skipping over those parts completely. For some people that probably won't be an issue, but as a heterosexual woman, it wasn't something I wanted to read. It was just an okay book that I didn't enjoy finishing. I won't be reading the next book in the series.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.

Driving Me To You is an enjoyable romantic tale about family, friendship and love. Set in London, the readers follow the trials and tribulations of sisters Samantha and Gemma as they struggle to save their family's classic car business.
After the death of their father, younger sister Sam spent the last five months travelling in India, while Gemma tried to deal with the family's financial mess. Returning home to London, Sam briefly meets Verlaine, an American guy in a cafe, unbeknownst to her that Gemma will hire him as a chauffeur/mechanic for their family business. When Sam and Verlaine meet for the second time, they become friends and keep their budding relationship a secret. But when Gemma gets Marcus Priestley, a venture capitalist and Sam's ex-boyfriend, to invest in the family business, Sam and Verlaine's relationship becomes complicated and a rivalry ensues when Marcus becomes determined to win back Sam's heart. And if that isn't enough, strained family relations between Gemma and Sam, and underhanded dealings within the family business will provide enough intrigue and suspense that will easily keep the reader turning the pages.
Author Julie Farrell weaves an entertaining tale that is packed with humor, family drama, quirky friendships, adventure, suspenseful twists and turns, and a lighthearted romance. I really enjoyed the narration of the story from the various characters' points of view, it made the characters come to life, and in my opinion it made the story that much more entertaining and enjoyable. It is easy to get drawn into this multi-layered story: from Sam and Gemma working on their strained family relationship; to the love triangle between Sam, Verlaine and Marcus; to Verlaine's quirky group of friends; to the intrigue involving the family business; Driving Me To You is a fun contemporary romance novel that has a great mixture of humor, romance and suspense, what more could a reader ask for?
