After breaking up with her bad-news boyfriend, Reagan O’Neill is ready to leave her rebellious ways behind. . . and her best friend, country superstar Lilah Montgomery, is nursing a broken heart of her own. Fortunately, Lilah’s 24-city tour is about to kick off, offering a perfect opportunity for a girls-only summer of break-up ballads and healing hearts. But when Matt Finch joins the tour as its opening act, his boy-next-door charm proves difficult for Reagan to resist, despite her vow to live a drama-free existence. This summer, Reagan and Lilah will navigate the ups and downs of fame and friendship as they come to see that giving your heart to the right person is always a risk worth taking.
Open Road Summer is PERFECT. I decided to start this book on my drive/ferry ride up to the San Juan islands where I'm living and working for the summer and it was the perfect choice! The book was very cliche and I was able to see everything coming but I love cliche's so I didn't care! I need Emery Lord to write books forever and ever now because she described everything perfectly and created some of the best characters ever! In my mind, Lilah is definitely Taylor Swift! I feel like it's given me insight into that world a little bit and it was very interesting to see! Matt is soooooo cute! Those songs that Emery came up with were awesome and Matt was so cute singing them! I can definitely relate to Reagan and her issues - I think all of the characters were believable. The only issue I have is that I thought the book was going to be told from Lilah's POV (for at least part of the book) so I would love a companion book or novella or something to get insight into Lilah! Overall, all of the hype over Open Road Summer is completely well-deserved! GO READ THIS BOOK!
