My Review:
★★★★☆ (4 / 5 stars)

Every Road to You follows Tia, Director of a cosmetics company, and Ethan, a lawyer, on a crazy, but fun adventure across the country to find Ethan’s living-on-the-edge grandmother, Carol, who had ran away with her long-time sweetheart.

This was a really fun, sweet romance to read. It had me engrossed all the way until the very last page. I love all of Ms. Bourne’s books because she weaves such fun and interesting characters into an unforgettable story. Ethan is a complete worrywart about his awesome grandmother who has this bucket list of daredevil things she wants to do in her lifetime. Tia was a strong heroine who tries to make light of the situation with Ethan’s worrying, and making sure that Carol is happy. There were some funny moments in the book, like the amusement park. I can totally see Tia coercing grumpy Ethan to ride the rides and buy her food.

I thought the initial attraction between them was rushed a little and could have been executed better. It seemed like they’d only known each other for a day and they are suddenly about to have sex. I didn’t really feel the chemistry between them happened until after they got on the road. Before then, it seemed like Ethan was still far too annoyed with Tia to want to even think about that right now. But the rest of the steamy scenes, I thought, made sense where they were, because the chemistry was there and it worked. But in the beginning of the story, not so much.

Overall, I really enjoyed the story. If you are looking for a fun, sweet romance, check out this book!
