Week 49 Review: The Great Escape

From Goodreads:
"Where do you run to when your life has fallen apart?"

Lucy Jorik is a champ at never embarrassing the family she adores--not surprising since her mother is one of the most famous women in the world. But now Lucy has done just that. And on her wedding day, no less, to the most perfect man she's ever known.

Instead of saying "I do" to Mr. Irresistible, Lucy flees the church in an ill-fitting blue choir robe and hitches a ride on the back of a beat-up motorcycle plastered with offensive bumper stickers. She's flying into the unknown with a rough-looking, bad-tempered stranger who couldn't be more foreign to her privileged existence.

While the world searches for her, Lucy must search for herself, and she quickly realizes that her customary good manners are no defense against a man who's raised rudeness to an art form. Lucy needs to toughen up--and fast.

Her great escape takes her to his rambling beach house on a Great Lakes island. Here, she hopes to find a new direction . . . and unlock the secrets of this man who knows so much about her but reveals nothing about himself. As the hot summer days unfold amid scented breezes and sudden storms, she'll also encounter a beautiful, troubled beekeeper; a frightened young boy; a modern-day evil queen; and a passion that could change her life forever.

In this dazzling follow-up to her "New York Times" bestseller "Call Me Irresistible," Susan Elizabeth Phillips tells the funny, touching, enchanting story of a young woman searching for her destiny . . . and of a damaged man who doesn't believe in second chances.

My Review:
This was such a hilarious, awesome book! I loved Call Me Irresistible, and then I just had to read this book! Because it's about Lucy, and it starts just before Call me Irresistible, and then it goes past it, and it was just so fantastic to read!

I loved the situations that she got into! She had to know that her parents wouldn't let her go without some sort of safety net, and then that was a guy to watch over her, while she's dealing with all these things!

It was just really great to watch was Lucy was doing! She wasn't really in the previous book, and this was her book to shine! And she does that! It was wonderful to watch her in this town, trying to figure things out!

I was compelled to read this book, I'm not kidding. I finished it at 4:30 in the morning, even though I had an 8 o'clock class. And I don't like being late for things. And I like my sleep. Yeah. But I love reading so much more!

This was such a great book, and I enjoyed it so much! I need to read the previous books in this series, I just have to!
