Music . . . the heart’s greatest librarian.

The average song is three and a half minutes long; those three and a half minutes could lead to a slow blink, a glimpse of the past, or catapult the soul into heart-shattering nostalgia.

At the height of my career, I had the life I wanted, the life I’d always envisioned. I’d found my tempo, my rhythm. Then I received a phone call that left me off key.

You see, my favorite songs had a way of playing simultaneously. I was in love with one man’s beats and another’s lyrics. But when it came to the soundtrack of a life, how could anyone choose a favorite song? So, to erase any doubt, I ditched my first-class ticket and decided to take a drive, fixed on the rearview.

Two days.

One playlist.

And the long road home to the man who was waiting for me.

Liezel’s Thoughts:

The heroine is definitely the highlight of the story. Stella Emerson is this young and independent, driven woman who knew exactly what she wanted out of life and did not hesitate to go after she wanted. I loved her spunk, her unwillingness to conform to everyone else’s expectations and her keen eye in spotting potential.

When she first met her sisters best friend Reid she felt indifferent but once music became involved in the equation the indifference got thrown out the window. Stella from then on became Reid’s #1 cheerleader. Even when things seemed hopeless she never gave up on him and their budding relationship up until he gave up on himself.

Stella tries to move on, meeting someone new – Nate. Just as much as I thought Reid was the one for Stella I felt the same for Nate. This is one of the great things about Drive – the author makes you fall terribly for both men. In their own way, they were good for her and I felt that I would’ve been content with anyone she chose. When does that ever happen in a triangle? Never! I thought it was very impressive how Kate Stewart managed to do this.

“Drive” is so many things rolled up into one. It will have you questioning your beliefs and morals. It is inspirational. It is about having hope and about following your dreams. I appreciated that it revolved around music that I personally enjoy.

I LOVED that Drive could be added into so many different romance categories – A somewhat forbidden romance, a second-chance romance, an inexplicable love- triangle, and a love of a lifetime/fated kind of love. My list of positives just keeps on going on and on… The bottom line is … it is terrific. Read it!


The Verdict:

About Kate Stewart

Kate Stewart lives in Charleston, S.C. with her husband, Nick, and her naughty beagle, Sadie. A native of Dallas, Kate moved to Charleston three weeks after her first visit, dropping her career of 8 years, and declaring it her creative muse. Kate pens messy, sexy, angst-filled contemporary romance as well as romantic comedy and erotic suspense because it’s what she loves as a reader. A lover of all things ’80s and ’90s, especially John Hughes films and rap, she dabbles a little in photography, can knit a simple stitch scarf for necessity only and does a horrible job of playing the ukulele. Aside from running a mile without collapsing, traveling is the only other must on her bucket list. On occasion, she does very well at vodka.
