Book Review: Driven to Distraction (Road to Love #1) by Lori Foster
Title: Driven to Distraction (Road to Love #1)
Author: Lori Foster
Stars: 4 Stars
Lori Foster Driven to Distraction is an interesting take on first impressions are not always the best.
Driven to Distraction is what readers come to expect from Lori Foster with her female leads feisty, somewhat lost, strong willed and seem to take their first impression and hold on to it until finally the male lead has them questioning everything they know.
Brodie is alpha male who protects those he respects. He is a little over the top as most of the men are in these stories.
Road to Love is the start of a new series with that in mind readers are introduced to endless amounts of characters. Characters pop off the pages while others fade into the background waiting for their story to be told. Lori Foster is able to create a beautiful landscape that will have readers wanting more.
The characters comes to life in this action packed romance that has readers wondering what is so important that someone is will to kill another?

Mary Daniels doesn’t let anything get in the way of her job acquiring rare artifacts for her wealthy boss. But this particular obstacle—huge, hard-muscled, unashamedly masculine—is impossible to ignore. Stuck in a cramped car with Brodie Crews for hours en route to their new assignment, Mary feels her carefully crafted persona—and her trademark self-control—is slipping, and she won’t allow it.
Brodie can’t imagine what secret in Mary’s past has left her so buttoned-up, though he’d dearly love to find out. Maybe then she’d trust him enough to explore their explosive chemistry. But he needs this job, so he’ll play by her rules and bide his time…until an enemy determined to outwit them strikes and he needs to get close—in every way—to protect her. Otherwise they could lose much more than a precious collectible. They could lose it all.
