In a dating scene full of well-educated, ambitious and attractive players, is the “terminally single” woman her own worst enemy?
That’s the accusation hurled at Aimee Chase, a young Chicago sports marketing executive who finds herself confronted with professions of love from Michael Blake, a handsome but bland high school classmate. When Aimee tries but fails to let him down easy, habitually nice Michael hits below the belt, implying she’s too damaged to appreciate a good man. Check, please: An insulted Aimee showers Michael in her glass of sweet-but-smoky Merlot.
Truth is, Michael's accusations drew blood. With a romantic history littered with cheaters and bad boys–including a married one with a very big job who is still in her life–Aimee fears that she has sabotaged her chances of ever finding the right guy. Months later, as her career implodes and she finds herself enveloped in a high-profile scandal, she’s not sure what to think when a suddenly captivating Michael reappears.
Thrilled to find that this “safe” guy now makes her weak in the knees, Aimee ultimately has her ecstasy interrupted by the revelation that Michael has transformed into a promiscuous, cold-hearted pick-up artist he thinks women like Aimee want. When he’s caught with related baggage but declares his fidelity, should Aimee toss aside a promising relationship, or just accept that “it’s complicated?”
Aimee Chase has never liked the nice guys, which is proven by her secret on-again, off-again relationship with a high-profile married man. So when the ultimate nice guy, Michael, declares his feelings for her, Aimee wants to let him down gently. But when Michael throws some home truths in her direction, Aimee refuses to listen and throws back some barbs of her own. But life is never simple. And when Aimee's high profile career is threatened by a public scandal, and she finds herself in the limelight, Aimee is forced to look at all of the relationships in her life, and re-evaluate what she wants from her future. Michael's character is very entertaining as he decides to embrace his inner bad boy in order to get the girl. With plenty of twists and turns, DRIVING ME WILD by Maria Benson & A.L. Ford is an entertaining love story that reflects the pitfalls and complications of modern dating. All in all DRIVING ME WILD is well worth a read.
