Wrong Turn by Samantha Chase
Chelsea and Drew’s story in Wrong Turn, book two in Samantha Chase’s Road Tripping series, is a wonderful, amusing, smexy, and laugh-out-loud tale of dealing with best friends and finding love when you least expect it. I could not put this book down, reading it in one day.
Chelsea thinks her best friend is making the biggest mistake of her life marrying a guy who is the world’s biggest jerk; or at the very least immature. When she learns that they are eloping, she knows she has to stop the wedding; even if it means partnering up with the one person who she believes is worse than the groom to be, his best friend.
Drew believes his best friend’s fiancé’s is the most uptight and boring person. So when he’s given the job to prevent Chelsea from interfering with the wedding he knows he will be challenged. Drew decides to make them miss their flight and drive to the destination wedding; trapped in a car with a woman who likes to push his buttons.
Starting out unable to tolerate each other, they discover between the miles passing by, distractions, detours and delays, they aren’t the enemies they thought they were. They realize that they misjudged each other and have sizzling, off the charts chemistry. In fact, the one thing they did learn during this road trip is that sometimes being wrong can definitely be way more fun than being right.
Ms. Chase wrote a wonderful, heartwarming and emotional story that is not to be missed. She provided a tale rich with sizzling chemistry, out loud laughs, and charming characters giving Chelsea and Drew the love and happiness needed for a forever together. I highly recommend Wrong Turn to other readers and look forward to reading the next book in this series.
Excerpt of Wrong Turn
Forget the ice cream or cupcake being orgasmic, kissing Drew was quickly approaching that status. His lips were both soft and firm at the same time–if that was even possible–and his tongue was…well, it certainly knew what it was doing, too.
Moving in closer, Chelsea’s hands slowly moved up his muscular arms before gently scraping around his nape and up into his thick, dark hair. He smelled good, he felt good, and he kissed like…like nothing she’d ever experienced before.
Oh, God…what if it isn’t that Drew is so good as…I’m just bad at this?
As if reading her mind, his lips left hers. She felt his warm breath against her cheek. “I can hear you thinking from here. If you want to stop…”
She never let him finish. Just as Drew’s hand dropped from her cheeks, she reached up to cup his. “Don’t stop,” she whispered before pulling him back in for another kiss. It was hotter and wetter, and more sensual than the first.
Within minutes, he had pulled her into his lap. Her hands raked through his hair while his were rubbing a hypnotic pattern up and down her back with the occasional butt squeeze. His hands were magnificent and she wanted to feel them on her skin and not just over her robe.
Without breaking the kiss, she untied the belt at her waist and pushed the garment from her shoulders. Drew’s hands immediately went to her bare legs and then around to grab her ass. She moaned into his mouth before he pulled back to look at her.
And that’s when she remembered what she had on underneath.
Chelsea tried to close the distance between them and kiss him again, but he wasn’t to be deterred. Wanting to die of embarrassment, she sighed. Leaning back, she let him get a good look at the hot pink nightshirt she was wearing.
With a giant cartoon chicken wearing a bikini and sunglasses that said, “Hot Chick.”
Kill me now.
He looked up at her and then down at her shirt before he laughed softly. “Wow. I don’t think I’ve ever…”
“You know what,” she quickly interrupted, doing her best to climb off his lap with as much dignity as she could muster. “No one was supposed to see this. I was supposed to be alone in my own room and…”
She never got to finish. Drew hauled her back into his lap, his large hands on her hips, securing her to him.
“I think it’s freaking adorable,” he said, his voice low and seductive–like he wasn’t referring to a chicken wearing a bikini. His gaze was hot and sexy. “I think you’re pretty freaking adorable too.”
“Really? Just adorable?”
Oh, God…why would I ask that?
“Actually, I think you’re pretty damn hot, Chelsea, and I’d be lying if said I didn’t want to see what you’ve got on under this shirt.”
Maybe it was the wine, maybe it was the ice cream. All she knew was that her mind had drifted in a very dirty direction and she was powerless to try to change it. Feeling bolder than she ever had in her life, she crossed her arms in front of her and tugged the nightshirt up and over her head.
She saw Drew swallow hard as his eyes seemed to devour her. Her skin was both chilled and heated at the same time. Her nipples tightened and she felt more exposed than she ever had with a man.
“I love how the panties match the shirt,” he said, one hand toying with the waistband. Right now, she wished she was wearing something sexier than hot pink cotton, but he didn’t seem to mind.
Looking up, his eyes met hers even as his fingers continued to tease her.
“Is this weird?” she said quietly. “I mean, earlier today we were fighting and making each other crazy.”
The hand that wasn’t tormenting her reached up and caressed her cheek. “I think we’re still making each other crazy, just in a much more pleasurable way.”
