Jo's Review - Drive Me Crazy by Portia MacIntosh

What They Say:

It was supposed to be the trip of a lifetime...

In reality it was a business trip, prettied up as a romantic mini break, but the man behind the wheel was meant to be Candice Hart’s boss and (married but separated, I swear!) lover. Not Danny the new guy!

Not only is Candice faced with a new driver, but the office’s far too handsome hipster expects her to share the cramped space inside his “fully” restored VW Beetle, aka The Love Bug, and put up with his constant opinions about her life…

Before long she is tired of playing the ‘good girl’ and, with Danny’s help, is determined to finally show the world the real Candice Hart!

What I Say:

I would like to thank Carina UK for authorising me to read this book on NetGalley in exchange for a fair and honest review.

When we first meet Candice she is having an affair with her boss who has told her he is with his wife for appearances only (sound familiar),  they are all set to go on a romantic business trip around the country, but things don't go to plan.  Will is the ultimate controlling make and when Candice finds out he has been lying all along, she decides to make him pay by taking and the new IT hottie Danny.

I've got to say I love Portia's writing and u knew that she work have me giggling away in no time, this story helped me forget and laugh for awhile during one of the toughest weeks of my life.  Portia's books guarantee a laugh out loud read and I wasn't disappointed with this one.  

I loved Candice as a main character, even though she was trying to be something she wasn't ie, What she thought Will was looking for and what Will wanted her to be.  Danny to show her who she really should be, but underneath she was struggling due to the factors in her life. 

Danny I loved, he was fun, charming and incredibly sweet.  The only downside was his man bun, no just no, this is so wrong on so many levels, but if you look past this and for me I wanted to get the scissors out to give him a hair cut, he's hot.

I loved the escapades that Candice and Danny get up to in his battered Beatle called 'the love bug'.  Candice learns a whole new side to herself by spending time with Danny.  I won't go into their escapades as that will spoil the book for anyone else but it's safe to say this is a fantastic jaunt across the UK.

Don't miss this hilarious new novel from bestselling author of Bad Bridesmaid

About The Author

When she was fifteen-years-old, Portia MacIntosh fell in with a bad crowd… rockstars.

After disappearing on tour and living the rock ‘n’ roll lifestyle for a few years, Portia landed a job in the music industry – but only so that she didn’t have to join the real world just yet.

Now in her twenties, Portia is ready to spill the beans on the things she has witnessed over the years. Well, kind of. If her famous friends knew that she was borrowing their lives to inspire her fiction, they would stop inviting her on tour and banish her from the inner circle. Then she really would have to rejoin the real world, and she’s still not ready.

Portia only started writing novels to share her secrets, but then she realised she actually quite liked writing – maybe even more than she likes living on a bus with a bunch of smelly boys – and has since tried her hand at writing about other things.
