Hairpin Curves by Elia Winters

RITA® Award-winning author Elia Winters delivers a sexy, playful frenemies-to-lovers road-trip romance.

Megan Harris had hopes of seeing the world, but at twenty-five she’s never even left Florida. Now a wedding invitation lures her to Quebec… in February. When her ex-friend Scarlett offers to be her plus-one (yeah, that’s a whole story) and suggests they turn the journey into an epic road trip, Megan reluctantly agrees to the biggest adventure of her life.

A week together in a car is a surefire way to kill a crush, and Scarlett Andrews has had a big one on Megan for years. The important thing is fixing their friendship.

As the miles roll away, what starts as harmless road-trip games and rest-stop dares escalates into something like intimacy. And when a surprise snowstorm forces Megan and Scarlett to hunker down without the open road as distraction, they’ve got a bigger challenge than making it to the church on time: facing the true nature of their feelings for each other.

Carina Adores is home to highly romantic contemporary love stories where LGBTQ+ characters find their happily-ever-afters.

3.5 stars

This is a really sweet and surprisingly sexy read combining a road trip with childhood friends sorting out their now adult feelings for each other.

Scarlett is, in theory, the one who went off to glamorous private school, leaving Megan to go to college alone. Nine years later Megan has still not let it go, but suddenly circumstances mean that they go off on a road trip together. Now they have plenty of time to think about what happened to their friendship, crushes, and possibly even admit to each other how they feel. There is a lot of inner voice, but it works rather well – as did the playlist CDs, and definitely the unexpected trip to a sex shop.

I enjoyed the development of the relationship, and as the leads re-found themselves, as well as each other, they definitely became nicer people. The road trip element was great fun, and was a pretty impressive journey for a first out-of-state journey.

Elia Winters is a fat, tattooed, polyamorous bisexual who loves petting cats and fighting the patriarchy. She holds a Master's degree in English Literature and teaches at a small rural high school, where she also runs the drama club. In her spare time, she is equally likely to be found playing tabletop games, kneading bread, cross-stitching, or binge-watching Marie Kondo. A sex educator and kink-positive feminist, Elia reviews sex toys, speaks at kink conventions, and writes geeky, kinky, cozy erotic romance. She currently lives in Western Massachusetts with her loving husband and their weird pets.
