Jaime Cruz has a to-do list a mile long. She needs to get back to her hometown, find a new teaching position and a place to live, and ensure all the preparations for her sister’s big wedding go off perfectly. Good thing she’s organized and has a strict itinerary. But when her ride across country insists she have fun along the way, her plans and schedule go out the window…literarily and figuratively.

Workaholic Xavier Moreau is taking an uncharacteristic vacation to drive across America to see all the places his mother loved. He didn’t expect to have the world’s biggest backseat driver riding shotgun, but he can’t really refuse to take his best friend’s future sister-in-law with him when the wedding they’re both in is a shared destination. Pushing Jaime’s buttons is more fun than Xavier’s had in a long time, but getting the luscious control freak to let go soon has him questioning his own future.

Jaime (or J'aime as Xavier calls her) is on her way to her younger sister's wedding. Her future bro-in-law's best friend, Xavier (yummy Frenchman) is her ride. A trip that should've taken only 3 days became almost 2 weeks as diversions pile on diversions.

Kitty's Review
I smiled from the beginning of this book to the end. What a wonderful read “Drive Me Crazy” was. Jamie and Xavier were fun, loving, and oh so sexy when she finally gave into him.

Jamie's attitude throughout the book was hysterical..../>

Jenna Bayley-Burke

By day, Jenna is faster than a speeding toddler, stronger than a stubborn husband, able to leap tall Lego structures in a single bound...but by night, while the family sleeps she writes romance novels where no one ever has to scoop up after the dog, change diapers, clip coupons, drive carpool, do laundry, mop floors, get silly putty out of hair, vacuum, empty the vacuum bag (gross!), exercise, count calories, apply bandaids, clean up puke...wait where was this going? Oh, Jenna writes romance because it is glamorous. Just ask the dog.
