    Fun, Exciting, & Adventurous Romance!

    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!

    This is the first book in the London Loves series, but I think you can read it as a standalone book.  It is well written and the characters are ones that you connect with rather fast. You will just have to love Verlaine. He just seems like your all around good guy. Sam is also one of those characters that you instantly like because of her personality. Then you had the characters that were written as for you not to too much car for. You have Sam’s sister, Gemma and Sam’s ex-boyfriend, Marcus. I was hoping that Marcus’ character wouldn’t have been so obvious as to him being pure evil, but you can pretty much tell from the beginning. I would have liked to have more of a mystery there. It would have pulled me in to the story more. Unfortunately, the characters were just a little too predictable. 
    There was definitely a story line to follow. I just thought it moved a little slow with the story line for me. I think it might be because of the other characters that popped in with story lines. Although I liked all the secondary characters as well, it just seemed to slow the main story down some. 
    I think for this to be Julie Farrell’s first series she did pretty well. I wouldn’t mind reading her books in the future.

    I read the series backwards but still loved it. I loved how Sam and V came to be, the book kept me entertained and wondering what would happen next. I enjoyed knowing Sam has a sister Gemma even though there is tension between them. I hated Marcus and how evil he was, I wanted to slap him for being so cruel and trying to mess with Sam. He tried his best and is a very bad person. So glad he's gone. I loved how I learned about Paul and Scott's relationship and to see how sweet they are to each other, they have a gorgeous relationship though it does need some work. This book made me smile, it made me a little scared, it has action, romance. It has a great story line.

    A wealthy woman, a hot mechanic, and a controlling ex and what do you get. Sam's life. Sam finds herself in a relationship with the mechanic hired to help salvage Sam's late father's vintage car collection. Thing is, she has no desire to work on this with her overbearing sister. Verlaine, who in life just wants to live on his terms but can't help but fall for Sam.


    Sam has a choice to make. Does she go for the mechanic that makes her happy or allow her billionaire ex to get her family back to the status that they once were.


    My view...


    This was a tough book for me to finish. The storyline held potential but the writing held it back. Sam and Verlaine's characters were never fully developed and left me with some questions. To be honest it was rather a slow read. I couldn't get past the grammatical errors (and it didn't have anything to do with them being in London) and some of the lines just did not make sense to me.


    I understood the sister's rivalry but enough was enough. I really couldn't take one more bitter word.


    From the intro I expected some hot steamy scenes and it fell flat. The violence in the end was way out of character for the book and I didn't understand it. I will be reading the next ones and I do hope they get better. At this point I will only give this book a 3.

    This book was just okay.

    The writer had some good ideas, and some of the scenes were quite well done. However, the early chapters had me feeling like the purpose of the book was an excuse to write some porn. The sexual scenes were overly graphic and superfluous to the story.

    Some elements seemed to me to be too juvenile for the genre of the book: passwords too easily guessed, police too easily manipulated, and bad guys too easily overcome. The highest praise that I can give is that the grammar was mostly well-crafted (if you can accept that someone freefalled rather than freefell).

    I will not be searching for more from this author, but if I happen upon another contribution, I will probably read it to see if the writing has matured beyond what was contained in this offering.

    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.

    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?
