#WOTR23 #FriendsToLovers #Audio #FamilyStory – The Wedding Driver, Love in the Adirondacks by Jen Talty, narration by Skye Allen

Love in the Adirondacks—where hearts come together like the moon and the stars shining bright in the sky, showing the boats the way home at night.

The Wedding Driver: He’s been making dreams come true for a decade. Never in a million years did he believe his dream was a boat ride away.

Tonya Johnson has been in love with the elusive Foster Landon for as long as she can remember. However, other than their mutual business arrangement of her wedding planning business and the fact that he takes newlyweds around the bay on his antique boat shortly after their nuptials, he barely gives her the time of the day. Well, she’s tired of being ignored and decides it’s time Foster Landon takes her out on a proper date.

Foster Landon had his heart broken once and he doesn’t plan on letting that happen again. While he believes in love, it’s not for him. Not anymore. That is until Tonya asked him to take him for a boat ride. And not a wedding ride. He should say no, but he couldn’t resist her smile. Besides, of all the wedding planners in the area, she brought him the most business. Who was he to say no? However, he wasn’t prepared to lose his heart and find himself wanting to become a groom.

Review by Twinsie Angie

I purchased this audio book.
I love a good romance and I needed something after reading a dark romance. I have read Jen’s stories before and loved the “feel good” love story so I knew this would be the perfect palette cleanser for me.
Tonya and Foster, LAWD ya’ll are a hot mess. They both want to be with the other but they both have fears….UBER FEARS. Tonya is afraid of losing her best friend. She would rather be with him as a friend then not at all. Foster, damn he has a giant-sized fear closet. He has every single right to be afraid but at the same time he is standing still while time flies by him.
When Tonya takes that step forward, it delights and scares Foster. He jumps forward and then runs the heck backward. I felt the couple had a lot of back and forth. Both afraid but also hurting the other with the indecisions. They both need to take a step back at times since they…well he mainly…runs for the hills.
I enjoyed the story except for the miscommunications but hey who wants to see hurt lovers? No one right!! But I did enjoy the twisted and weaving Foster’s past with his wife, child, and his past. I loved Tonya’s grandpa Maxwell. He was the best side character ever.
I didn’t realize this book was part of a series so now I want to go and listen to the story of Tonya’s sisters and their stories. The ladies were great big sisters who also gave their sister a kick in the butt when she needed.

Grab a glass of vino, kick back, relax, and let the romance roll in…
