REVIEW: The Driver's Seat by Casea Major

Recap:

Len has had an awful week as an attorney in Seattle, and her battery dying in the middle of Wyoming during an ice storm is just the icing on the cake. Jack the mechanic comes to her rescue and he’s got her hormones in an uproar. Against his better judgement, he lets her go once he gets her a new battery, but warns her of the price she’ll pay if he has to rescue her again. Sure enough, it’s time for her to pay up while stuck in his cabin for two days waiting out the storm. Jack hides a heartbreaking secret though, and it could break down everything they’d built together in those two days.

Thoughts:

This is definitely a multifaceted story. The case she was working on tugs at the heart strings, both characters’ backgrounds, the connection they build and just everything. It all makes for a touching story.

Most of the plot twists are pretty predictable, but none the less enjoyable. The anticipation to when things hit the fan is slow built and yummy while funny. Casea Major provides a sweet story with some dimension without ignoring the obvious things that are somehow occasionally overlooked in many stories these days and that actually makes all the difference in its ability to immerse the reader and grab emotional investment.

The character development is great. In the beginning we spend a few consecutive chapters in each perspective so we can get acquainted and connected to them both before diving into the real meat of the story. I really, really love the demonstration(s) of how trust plays such a big role in real intimacy, physical or emotional. Truly, a fantastic read.

In Conclusion:

A novella with depth, The Driver’s Seat is another home run from Casea Major. She’s woven a story that is as humorous as it is sexy, and is ultimately a very sweet book to be read when you need a smile.
