Have you ever gone on a road trip? The snacks! Great playlists! And so much time to read if you aren’t the one at the wheel. (Pro-tip.) Team Forever was inspired by the road trip in Three Little Words by Jenny Holiday, the final book in the Bridesmaids Behaving Badly series. A snowstorm thwarts original travel plans to a wedding in Florida, and two unlikely characters find themselves on a road trip down the East Coast.
If you are looking to travel vicariously through some of our characters, we’re recommending a few titles featuring a road trip. Happy reading and wanderlusting!
Family bonding and a new career direction await Rita as she embarks on a solo trip from California to Coney Island, New York. Until her car breaks down in New Mexico and she meets the charming Jasper Ellis...
About the book: Having already flambéed her culinary career beyond recognition, Rita Clarkson is now stranded in God-Knows-Where, New Mexico, with a busted-ass car and her three temperamental siblings, who she hasn’t seen in years. When rescue shows up—six-feet-plus of hot, charming sex on a motorcycle—Rita’s pretty certain she’s gone from the frying pan right into the fire. Jasper Ellis has a bad boy reputation in this town, and he loathes it. The moment he sees Rita, though, Jasper knows he’s about to be sorely tempted. There’s something real between them. Something raw. And Jasper has only a few days to show Rita that he isn’t just for tonight—he’s forever.
Okay so the road trip is a weekend adventure but it's France (oh-la-la) and leads to some of the funniest and sexiest (it's true) moments in this book.
About the book: Once upon a time, Callen and Jessie were childhood best friends who kissed once. And then he disappeared. Years later, everyone knows who Callen Hayes is. Famous composer. Infamous bad boy. What no one knows is that Callen’s music is now trapped behind his own inner demons. It’s only when he withdraws to France to drink his way through the darkness that Callen stumbles into the one person who makes the music return. Jessica. His Jessie. But they don’t belong in each other’s worlds anymore. There are too many mistakes. Too many secrets. Too many lies. All they have is that instinctive longing, that need—and something that looks dangerously like love.

Will his secret push them inseparably together-or destroy them forever?

Destination: wedding. Gia and Bennett get to know each other on a road trip through the East Coast and it's pretty delicious. (Seriously, he's a chef. He knows all!)
