*** Book Spotlight *** Right of Way by Lauren Barnholdt

The road to heartbreak takes a lot of turns.

Here are Peyton and Jace, meeting on vacation. Click! It’s awesome, it’s easy, it’s romantic. This is the real deal.

Unless it isn’t.

Because when you’re in love, you don’t just stop calling one day. And you don’t keep secrets. Or lie. And when your life starts falling apart, you’re supposed to have the other person to lean on.

Here are Peyton and Jace again, broken up but thrown together on a road trip. One of them is lying about the destination. One of them is pretending not to be leaving something behind.

Neither of them is prepared for what’s coming on the road ahead…

I don't know about you but I love road trip books! There is something about self discovery and finding love on a road trip that has me intrigued by these books. Right Of Way is a great summer read. As I was reading it I could see the hot Florida weather and the descriptions of Georgia are so vivid it will have you wanting to go to Georgia just to see everything Lauren has described. 

Right Of Way is told in a two person POV, Peyton who is in Connecticut making her way to Florida with her mother to go to her uncles wedding and Jace who is in Florida who will be going to wedding because his parents are friends with the bride and groom. I have to say I love how Lauren set this book up because there were several things going on at once but the way they flowed together was effortless. We meet Peyton who is leaving Connecticut to go to her uncles wedding but then she is running away right after the wedding. She and her best friend have everything planned out and she is packed and ready to go. What she isn't ready for is her best friend backing out and having no way to get to North Carolina where she and her best friend have rented an apartment for the summer. She is desperate and will do anything to get to North Carolina so she asks the one person she hates the most Jace.

Jace is excited about going to the wedding and seeing Peyton. She is all he thinks about and he wants to see her again but when he does he is shocked at how he feels. After not seeing her for a while and speaking to her when he sees her his heart wants her. He knows it is risky because she crushed him before but his heart wants what it wants and when he finds out she is running away he is determined to get her home back to Connecticut. On this road trip the two of them discover what happened to them and the outcome is EPIC! 

I loved the back and forth banter between the two and the back story of both of them and what they went through. I also loved how we got glimpses of Jordan and Courtney. Their story in Tow Way Street is one of my favorites! Read this story because it is so cute and it has all the summer fun and loving and Lauren keeps you intrigued right to the end. She keeps you guessing about whether or not Peyton and Jace will be together in the end. I need another book about them like ASAP!
