Waylaid by Sarina Bowen – REVIEW –


This story was so much more than I could have imagined. I thought Rickie’s book would be full of fun and flirty banter, and while we got that, we ended up getting so much more of him. 

Rickie puts on a front like he’s carefree and down for a good time, but we learn that there is so much more to him and watching him dig into his vulnerabilities was as much heartbreaking as it was inspiring. Daphne is his complete opposite. She’s extremely focused and can come off as cold or uncaring. That’s so far from who Daphne really is, and I loved getting to see a different side of her as well.

I will say… I think stubbornness is a Shipley family trait because my land was Daphne so stinking stubborn. But in true Sarina Bowen fashion she absolutely nailed Daphne and Rickie’s story. I absolutely loved getting to catch up with the Shipley clan… and I have to say I’m hoping we get some type of story for Grandpa Shipley because the man is hilarious!

It’s a tale as old as time: the bad boy meets the good girl. He makes a daring proposition. Then the boy gets a mysterious head injury and loses a year of his life…

The first time I meet Rickie, I don’t know what to make of him. The second time we meet, he doesn’t remember the six hours we spent together. Or standing me up afterward.

I’m not the same, either. I’ve got secrets. I’ve told lies. Bad boys aren’t my type, anyway. Even the ones with troubled gray eyes.

But now we’re roommates. Cue the awkward moments in the hallway when he’s wearing only a towel and a smile. He’s determined to win me over, and his talented hands weaken my resolve.

It’s all fun and games until my past rears its ugly head and his secrets come to light, shaking our fragile connection, maybe even breaking it…

Note: this is Daphne Shipley’s story. Contents include Vermonty ice cream flavors, nerdy awkwardness, tattoos, and a playboy grandpa.
