The Road Trip by Beth O’Leary (Free Download), Addie and her sister are about to embark on an epic road trip to a friend’s wedding in rural Scotland. The playlist is all planned and the snacks are packed.
But, not long after setting off, a car slams into the back of theirs. The driver is none other than Addie’s ex, Dylan, who she’s avoided since their traumatic break-up two years earlier.
Dylan and his best mate are heading to the wedding too, and they’ve totalled their car, so Addie has no choice but to offer them a ride. The car is soon jam-packed full of luggage and secrets, and with four-hundred miles ahead of them, Dylan and Addie can’t avoid confronting the very messy history of their relationship…
Will they make it to the wedding on time? And, more importantly, is this really the end of the road for Addie and Dylan?

‘O’Leary does it again! The Road Trip is another sure-fire hit, filled with characters you won’t forget’ Mike Gayle
‘An achingly tender love story’ Richard Roper.
A charming, heartfelt story of love found and love potentially lost – The Road Trip is steamy and sexy, properly witty, and unabashedly romantic. I couldn’t get enough! I loved the glimpses into “then” and “now”. Nobody does it like Beth does * Laura Jane Williams * I loved The Road Trip and think it’s O’Leary’s best yet. Moody and wise, exploring the contrast between the all-consuming recklessness of first love and what happens years on, after the break up, after the end. And all in a closed-set car journey . . . O’Leary has a knack for articulating the things we all think and feel in relationships * Gillian McAllister * O’Leary does it again! The Road Trip is another sure-fire hit, filled with characters you won’t forget. You’ll be fully invested in Dylan and Addie’s relationship from the word go and the moment you turn that final page you’ll be wondering how on earth you’ll survive the wait until your next O’Leary hit! * Mike Gayle * Completely fresh and unpredictable, The Road Trip is so compelling, I couldn’t put it down! * Paige Toon * This book is perfect * Rosie Walsh * So romantic and moving and brilliantly told, with characters who are relatable but beautifully flawed. The Road Trip is an absolute knockout and it’s going to be a huge hit * Louise O’Neill * The Road Trip is a humorous yet deeply moving journey toward confronting the past, forgiveness, and reconciliation, with a poignant detour to a summer of young love in Provence. I loved the vivid cast and the depth and intimacy in O’Leary’s writing * Helen Hoang * I enjoyed The Road Trip immensely. O’Leary is such a wonderful writer, she weaves laughter and tears seamlessly through her novels and I look forward to reading every one. Joyful and uplifting * Sheila O’Flanagan * An achingly tender love story – funny and moving in equal measure. Beth O’Leary’s best book yet * Richard Roper *.
