Are We There Yet? by Savannah Scott: Book Review

 *Book received for consideration. All thoughts are my own.

A vintage VW van. Four friends. A cross-country road trip.
It will be the best adventure of my life, if only I can shake the feelings I have for Cameron.

Cameron Reeves is as gorgeous as his name makes him sound.
He’s about six feet tall, which is the height I always wrote in my ideal man list in my journal. Yes. I have a list of qualities I want in a man. And Cameron ticks all those boxes—except two.
  • He’s my best friend’s older brother.
  • He barely knows I exist.

That is, unless you count the fact that I’m a fixture in his life. Cameron probably gives me as much thought as he gives his sofa. It’s there. It’s always been there. Comfortable, reliable, old sofa.

I’ll get over Cameron eventually. Don’t we all get over the hum and rush of our first crush?

If anything, six or seven days cooped up in a van together on a trip across the country should kill any infatuation I have and kill it good.

They say absence makes the heart grow fonder, so maybe forced proximity works the opposite way. A girl can hope.

Savannah Scott loves writing happily-ever-after romcoms with scenes where kisses make you melt. Her characters feel like long lost friends, and the settings make you want to take off on a road trip to visit.

You will smile. You will laugh. Yes. You will need coffee because you stayed up past your bedtime reading. Sorry, not sorry.

If you can’t find Savannah, she’s probably hiding with a book, dancing Zumba, or going a little crazy being the fun carpool mom who cranks the tunes and always goes through the drive-thru for copious amounts of sugar and fat on the way home from school.

(Can you keep a secret? I thought so. Savannah also writes as Patty H Scott, which is the Clark Kent to her Superman. If you like clean romance, check out Patty's books.)

As much as I was bummed for the Getting Shipped series to end, I must say that the Love Trippin' series is shaping up to be every bit as wonderful... and I am so here for all of it. Are We There Yet? starts at in Bordeaux (that's Bored-Ox for those who haven't read the previous series) before starting off on an adventure along Route 66. Those of us who enjoyed the previous series will definitely enjoy seeing a few familiar characters, but don't worry... those new to Savannah Scott's books will be able to enjoy this one just fine too. 

Two things to know about me--- my dream car is a VW Bus and when my husband and I lived in Southern California, we would drive to the Midwest (Indiana/Illinois) and back at least once a year--- most often traveling right along Route 66. As such, Route 66 holds a very special place for me being that it was such a huge part of the beginning of our family. Needless to say, when I saw that one of my favorites was writing a book about a group of friends road tripping along that famous route in a VW Bus, I was beyond ecstatic and had super high expectations. Thankfully, this one did not disappoint! 

Cam and Riley were so cute together. The romance was definitely a bit of a slow burn... but when they finally kiss? Oh my goodness, so worth the wait! I couldn't get enough of these two. I also loved that while it was certainly a romance story, friendship played such an important role in the story too. I loved the relationships between Cam and Ben and Riley and Madeline and the value they put on those friendships. I must admit that Ben was my favorite character of all, and I so look forward to seeing his story in the next book! 

Are We There Yet? is a clean, closed-door romance. The chemistry is sizzling, but nothing beyond kisses and no language. Overall, this was an absolutely fantastic read and one not to be missed! If you're looking for your next great RomCom read, this needs to be it!
