Lucy Gonzalez might have once been a stressed personal assistant, but now she’s hitched up her grandma’s bitchin’ vintage Airstream and hitting the road with all the best places to find cheap eats and see the sights on a shoestring budget.
And she has company along for the ride. If those thirst-worthy abs seem familiar, it’s because they belong to billionaire Miles Hart. True story, he used to be Lucy’s boss until she quit on him. Something about not being appreciated? Anyway, you will appreciate Miles—and his groveling—plenty on this trip.
Now, you have front-row seats to the hottest trip of the year. Sparks! Fireworks! Unexpected smooching! And you won’t want to miss the jaw-dropping surprise that will make this destination totally worth the hilarious journey...
Each book in the Harts series is STANDALONE:
* Miles and Miles of You
* Not Today, Cupid
Miles and Miles of You had some funny, sweet, swoony, and sexy moments throughout, yet there were aspects of this book that I felt were ridiculous, rushed, and over the top. ~ Sharon – Simply Love Books
Miles and Miles of You had some funny, sweet, swoony, and sexy moments throughout, yet there were aspects of this book that I felt were ridiculous, rushed, and over the top.
Lucy has worked for Miles for two years as his executive assistant. She has a crush on him which of course he doesn’t notice because he’s a billionaire and a horn dog not to mention he’s just flat clueless to everything and everyone around him except his thriving company he owns with his brothers. Miles is one of those people who does not notice the world around him, he fixates on something and that is his sole purpose, and social cues often escape him. I don’t feel like he was a bad person, just not in tune with the world around him. Lucy decides she has had enough feels she’s been ignored and “disrespected” because he doesn’t listen when she briefs him on his day. So she quits and Miles doesn’t understand and quite frankly I wouldn’t either when she’s never had a sit down meeting and explained how his tuning her out upsets her. I’m putting it out here that I felt Lucy was immature and a wee bit over dramatic and the fact she quits a job that she’s paid well for to become a “social media star” is ridiculous.
Two weeks later Lucy is getting ready for her first big adventure <honestly not so big when she has it planned to the nth degree and she’s wanting to show women how to travel inexpensively on their own> there’s a difference in traveling on a planned trip that thousands of people have done and simply heading out and seeing where the road takes you. She is clueless in the fact that what she’s hoping to build her social media empire on is something many people had done so she’s not unique or interesting. But I digress, not my book, not my characters. Miles shows up and tells her he is going to travel with her on her 2 weeks journey (yep, her big social media star plan is a 2 week trip on Route 66) and they make a bet that if Miles wins she’ll go back to work for him.
I normally love road trip romances but this one was just okay, I honestly didn’t feel the heat between them because they were so busy trying to one up each other and not show their feelings to the other because apparently Miles had feelings for her too. These characters were not developed well nor was the road to their relationship it all felt forced and uninspired.
I hate it when I read a synopsis for a book and it just doesn’t live up to my expectations. While Miles and Miles of You didn’t work for me, I have a feeling others will really enjoy it. As a road trip warrior, for me their trip just wasn’t interesting and the fact that I didn’t feel the “gotta have you” vibes between them, was also disappointing.
