Off Trail Love by Taylor Epperson: Book Review

The Book

I need a fresh start, a clear perspective.

Hiking has always given me that. I know that this hike up Longs Peak is going to help me know what to do next. It’s the perfect plan.

What I didn’t plan on? Jack Donovan.

The ultimate prankster who disguises himself as the perfect student (at least he did in high school.)

He was also the first boy who broke my heart, not that anyone but my college friends knows that.

When he first approached me at the airport, I thought it was simply so he could rub it in my face how perfect his life is—he still has a job after all, unlike me. But no, he’s part of my hiking group.

How am I supposed to have a clear head when he’s around? How am I supposed to figure out my life and plan out my next career steps if I’m worried about which pranks Jack is going to pull? Because while most people know him as the perfect, straight-A student, I know him better than that. And I kind of hate him for ruining the end of high school.

So what if it’s been six years? Instead of my relaxing, mind-clearing hike, it’s game on. And this time, I’m going to win. Even if it means throwing out all of my well-set plans.

Book Review

Off Trail Love is the sixth book in the Sunkissed Summer Novellas series. This is a multi-author series with interconnected characters but can definitely be enjoyed as a standalone as well. 

This was such a cute read! Maggie and Jack both had crushes on each other in high school, but after a misunderstanding, ended up as enemies--- at least on her side! He had no idea what had happened until they both end up on the same hike six years later... giving them the perfect opportunity to figure things out! This was a super quick read (easily read in just one sitting) but was packed full of so much good stuff. Hate kisses? Yes, please! And the prank war? I couldn't get enough of it. These two had a really fun chemistry between them that I couldn't help but enjoy. Their story had me smiling throughout and was a truly perfect way to finish out this wonderful summer series. 

Off Trail Love is a closed-door romance with kisses only and no language.
