REVIEW - UBER G#SM by Tamsyn Bester & Robin Ash

Oakley doesn't do planes or any other type of mass transport for that matter and when her stepmonster planned her half-sister's wedding in Napa she decides to hire an Uber.

Magnolia has been the worst as far as designing her wedding dress, especially since Oakley wasn't invited to be a part of the wedding party.  If it wasn't for the grief she would hear she wouldn't even bother attending.

A 1955 Gullwing pulls up in front of her and at first, she ignores it until the young guy asks if she is his passenger.  He is wearing jeans and a t-shirt in 8-degree weather!  Did he steal the car?  Who Ubers with a 4 million dollar car?

Bash pulls up to a gorgeous woman who is already angry since he is an hour late.  Great!  Because he has ten thousand dollars on a bet with his friends Roy and Ken on who can get the worst Uber ratings.  Not that they need the money since they are stinking rich, at least they are since his father took away access to his trust account because he refused to work on Wall Street.

So he 'borrowed' one of his dad's prized cars that he never drives for this trip as a kiss-off to this dad and also for an uncomfortable ride for his passenger.  Who hires an Uber to travel from New York to Napa?  Then he sees a problem with his car choice because she has two suitcases and a large box sitting at the curb with her, but it's too late to get another car now since he is already late.

Because not only does the Gullwing have bucket seats there is no luggage room.  Leaving behind one of the suitcases should get him a start on a bad rating and he is sure that on the 2800 mile drive to Napa he can annoy the hell out of her.

When his friends find out who his passenger is they up the bet.  Sleep with her and the odds double, get her pregnant and they triple.

I loved this book!!!  It is very well written and the characters are fully developed and funny as hell.  I never quite thought of a plane in Oakley's terms, but now I can't get the picture out of my head LOL! 

Oakley is a fashion designer and when her mom died when she was fifteen her father just checked out on her and then he marries a stripper who got pregnant.  Stepmonster, Charity, and her step-sister, Magnolia, are despicable and she does everything she can to avoid them.  Not only did he seem to forget he had a daughter her father spends all his time with Magnolia, who she questions is even his child.  

Bash wants more than anything to be a veterinarian, more specifically an equine vet, but his dad is adamant that he use his degree to work on Wall Street.  Bash would rather be poor.

The chemistry between Oakley and Bash is stormy from the beginning of the book, but their sexual chemistry gets hotter and hotter the more they are forced together.  If it could go wrong it probably did on this road trip, but I laughed through it all.

This book gives you all the feels.  You laugh, you cry, and get so angry and at guy's antics.  This book is a definite read and I will be looking for more books by this duo!
