Author: Missy Johnson
Genre: Romance
Release Date: August 14, 2018


Vodka should come with a warning:

Mixing with Karaoke will make you do stupid shit, like sing that song you wrote when you were fourteen, about the boy who broke your heart.

At least he didn’t see it.

Oh wait. He did.

I should've just stayed home. The only reason I came was to stop Lily from doing something stupid, like crash her ex-boyfriend's wedding.

When I open my hotel room door to find Adam standing there, that sexy smirk tells me he’s hasn’t changed. He’s still the same arrogant asshole who made my childhood hell.

He insists on driving us home, and while he’s the last person I want to be around, he and I both know it’s a bad idea for Lily to be anywhere near that wedding.

I’m on the road trip from hell with my heartbroken cousin, and the one guy I can’t stand.

What was I thinking?

This has been my favorite of the series so far, so many LAUGH OUT LOUD moments and a few times I had to wipe tears from my eyes. This was a nice break from some of the heavier books I have been reading lately and dare I say it put me in the mood for some karaoke ;)
What Happens in Vegas, Stays in Vegas is a great tagline but unfortunately not always true especially when you have to much alcohol in your system and someone videos you singing some really awful karaoke about a guy that broke your heart when you were fourteen and then sends it to her contact list....YEP! OMG I'm still laughing over that, I can totally see someone doing that - not on purpose but regardless can you imagine the embarrassment it would cause you....and what if said guy that broke your heart saw it? How would you feel then? Oh god I think I'd hide in my house for the next few years...LOL

ROAD TRIP! Fun right? Well what if your trying to get your friend away from her ex so she doesn't crash his wedding...would you still think it was fun? Maybe not, but, this road trip had a ton of LOL moments which definitely made it one for the memories.

This book was not only funny but it was steamy as well. The chemistry between Katie and Adam was great, I don't know if it was the fact that they were both into one another as teenagers or if it was more because it was an enemy-to-lovers type romance, either way they were great together! This story had a couple of surprises, one I figured out pretty early on and the other one really shock the shit out of me. Yep didn't see that one coming AT ALL!

Don't Go There is the fifth book in the Awkward Love series but can be read as a standalone. I would recommend this story to just about everyone, it's light, it's fun, and it has a lot of sexy times too. One bit of advice though, the author mentions a few words/terms that you may not be familiar with and she puts a disclaimer at the end of the book about them...for the love of all things good in this world DO NOT GOOGLE IMAGES OF BLUE WAFFLES! YOU HAVE BEEN WARNED!!!! Happy Reading!!!

It’s five in the morning and I’m still awake. I’m bordering on delirium, because I’m so tired, but I just can’t get to sleep. I’ve tried listening to music, clearing my mind, counting backward … nothing is working.
There’s still one thing I haven’t tried
I hold my breath, listening to the sound of his breathing as I creep my hand under the blankets and down over my stomach. I freeze when he stirs, but he doesn’t wake up. My heart pounds as I focus on the sound of his breathing and nothing else.
My body tenses as a part my legs, just enough to slide a finger along my entrance. I hold my breath, the air catching my throat, then I quickly exhale as I slide a finger inside myself. I close my eyes and concentrate as I massage my clit, trying so hard not to make a sound.
What would it feel like to kiss him?
I sigh, imagining his lips brushing over mine, while I rake my hands over that thick, uneven stubble. I swallow, my pussy aching as I tease myself, imagining my fingers sliding over his muscular chest.
I work myself faster and harder as my body reacts. The soft lapping of my finger sounds a thousand times louder than it really is. I gasp as my finger slides deeper inside me. I want to scream, but I can’t, so I force the sound back down my throat and ride the last of my climax out in total silence, all while still imagining his hands on me. It’s torture and bliss at the same time.
Holy fuck.
I stare at the ceiling, unable to do anything other than lie there, listening to my heart pounding in my chest. I kick off the blankets, my skin all hot and sweaty. Then I smile and swallow a giggle. That was incredible. I’ve never experienced a rush quite like that before.
Snuggling into my pillow, I sigh. I’m so close to asleep …
And then I hear that familiar chuckle.
I hold my breath, not trusting myself to do anything other than lie there and panic. I slowly relax when he doesn’t react. He’s asleep. It’s fine. I imagined it. I breathe out and then close my eyes. Just as I finally feel like I’m going to fall asleep, his sleepy voice cuts through the silence. I lie there, holding my breath, my eyes wide open.
“Feels good to be naughty, doesn’t it, Katie?”
His sleepy voice cuts through the silence. I don’t answer, because I can’t.
“Next time you do that? I’ll be participating.”
