I loved Willow and Dax. Willow’s a preschool teacher who sings at juice bars in an all-girl boy band cover band. Dax is a thrice-divorced rock star who’s lost control of both his personal and professional life. Willow is friendly and approachable. Dax is a grump. Poor Dax; he’s yet to realise doesn’t stand a chance against Willow.
Willow and Dax are two imperfect main characters who find themselves in a situation neither wants to be in. One kidnapping/escape plan later (you decide which it is because Willow and Dax still disagree), these two traverse Europe in search of adventure. Well, Willow wants adventure; Dax is sticking close by because she is the key to him getting his money back. And adventure is what they certainly find. From lifestyle bloggers, to truculent farmers, to a gaggle of nuns, it’s definitely a fun ride as Willow ticks items off her bucket list.
The physical attraction between Willow and Dax is scorching hot but more importantly, they fall for each other as people with personalities. Even with all the antics along the way, I loved that focus was never taken off our couple as they shake off the bad things in their lives and emerge as better individuals as well as a couple in love.
Rockaway Bride sees many of the characters from previous books making an appearance. I loved getting to know Eloise much better and I can’t wait for her book. Dax’s band mates are just as quirky as Willow’s friends, making for an even better read.
Rockaway Bride is one rollicking good ride! If you’re after a fun, humour-filled read, I cannot recommend it highly enough.
