Publisher's Summary

Ride along on this endearing road-trip rom-com from Audie Award nominee Cara Bastone - scripted exclusively for audio!

I have exactly 5 hours and 10 minutes to get from Boston to New York City or the professional opportunity of a lifetime disappears. My only travel option? The second to last seat on a discount bus. Across from the bathroom. Wearing last night’s clothes (don’t ask). All worth it if I can make it in time.

My nerves almost get the best of me, but then there he is, sitting down in the seat next to me. Tall. Friendly smile. Bright indigo streak in his brown hair. The perfect distraction. Turns out he’s on his way to reconnect with an old flame. The one who got away. We can both make it on time - just barely - if the traffic keeps flowing.

Playing road-trip games, avoiding calls from his mother, and effortless conversation keeps us from clockwatching...until the bus breaks down. And my seatmate turns into my copilot as we wrangle a ride in a car three decades old. And hit all the traffic. And oh, Lord, the detours. And somehow I end up careening cross-town on the handlebars of a Citi Bike carrying a box of kittens. (Yeah, don’t ask.)

He’s my hero every step of the way...and I might be falling for him. But what happens when we reach our final destination? Could my seatmate really be my soul mate?

Love it

This is the third story I have listened too from Cara Bastone…
These are light happy stories. I loved the duet style as well.

Please can we have some more 🙏

Third in series and I can't wait for another. After digging into my soul, crying buckets of tears and journeying the world in sagas, dramas, memoirs and burning romances, I search Audible in vain for some pure entertainment....until Cara Bastone and the production team came up with these delights. Witty, fast paced and no longwinded introspect, this story and the other 2 so far have raised the bar. Thankyou.

Utterly Charming

This is truly charming, and I think I was in love with Sam by the end too. Not sure one storyline conclusion is adequately setup to make it feel genuine for us, and I'm not sure I like the final line, but otherwise this is a really enjoyable listen.

Sweet, natural & actually interesting

This is my favourite so far of Audible's various straight-to-audio romantic comedies. The dialogue is sweet, flowing and natural and the cast play their roles perfectly. As the story progresses it deepens & develops showing actual insight and intrigue. It's lovely to spend an afternoon cruising along the road with Sam & Gwen.

A sweet & easy listen

Bastone has distilled one of the best parts of romance stories - the banter. A sweet and easy listen with the crisp audio quality we have come to expect from originals.
