Driving Miss Crazy

DJ Van Oss
Contemporary Romance

"The princess doesn’t ride off on the white horse with the knight anymore. We’re lucky if we find a guy who even owns a white Corolla and doesn’t live with his mother."

Maggie MacNally was born into diplomacy.  With her parents as Irish Diplomats, and her grandmother as the Irish Ambassador to the US, what else is she supposed to do?  Except, so far, she hasn't been very good at it.  It's not her fault - things just seem to get messed up.  So when her grandmother gives her a chance to work at the consolate and plan a huge event, she sees it as her chance to prove herself.  And nothing is going to go wrong this time - even the distracting new driver she has taking her around everywhere.  No matter how cute he is.  Adrian Adams needs this job to support his daughter.  After the death of his wife, he has no time for anything but Charlie.  That is, until his new client ends up more beguiling than he had expected.  Could Maggie be the key to getting back out there - and opening his and his daughter's heart again?  Or is this just a job?

My Opinion: This book had some great potential, but I think it got a little lost in it's own plot.  It carried along a little choppily, picking up and losing threads of the story along the way.  It was a bumbling story, much like the main character, and lost a lot of what seemed like should have happened.  Adrian was smaller than life - with reactions that felt unrealistic.  Maggie's flaws and mistakes were a bit too obvious to make her likable enough to ignore them.  Their interactions were often sweet and lovely, but the romance was lost in the story.  I wish this had been a rough draft that was smoothed over a few more times and turned into the fantastic story it should have been.

I received a free copy of this book to review.  No other compensation was given.  The summary and review are 100% my own.
