Book Review: Chasing Sunset by Missouri Vaun
The road less traveled.
Finn is a car service driver in Georgia. Iris is an actress visiting Georgia to audition for lead in an upcoming series. They end up meeting, spending some time together, and then deciding to drive across country to California where Iris lives and because Finn wants to follow her dream to become a stunt car driver.
I expected this to be more of a road trip book. But it wasn’t a huge part of the book in the grand scheme of things. That was good and bad. Good because I enjoyed reading about the side roads they took and different places they visited. I’ve been all over the U.S. Everywhere except for the South where this was based. It made me want to plan a trip that way. Bad because there was too much time spent on the flip sides of the trip.
Finn and Iris drive across country together and things get hot. I’m not just talking between the sheets. The car they drive has NO AIR CONDITION. Sorry. But that would be a big fat NO for me. But between the sheets was not too bad. Or by the car at a deserted gas station. Or in the bathtub, either.There are a lot of miles to explore between Georgia and California.
California ends up to be a bit of a challenge. Some drama ensues at 80%. The author gets me crying when one character decides to be an immature baby.
The settings were nice, the characters were cute, and the relationship was sweet yet fragile. I liked this book. It was quick and mostly light read. However, I do wish that Iris would have called Finn ‘Taylor’ just once, at least.
I recommend this to people who like romance, the South, road trips, actors, cars, and ice cream.
