Drive tells the story of fun guy Nick (you'll love his obsession with food and crazy t-shirts) and straight-laced Carter, who is trying to break free of her old image after a crappy split with her ex. What ensues is one of the sweetest, most romantic books I have read this year!! Nick is the most swoon-worthy man, so infatuated with Carter he can't think straight. And seeing him try to break down the walls around Carter's heart is just magical.
"Every time we're together he bulldozes his way into my life a little further and it surprises me how much they pleases me."
All in all, Drive was absolutely fantastic!!! It was light and funny and romantic and such an easy read - but in the best way. It made me laugh, it made my jaw drop and it made me want a Nick all of my own. Without a doubt, one of my favourite books of 2017.
Oh and sign me up for a #Nickstracted t-shirt 😉😍❤️
And I did to some degree. The book is not bad. For me it’s hovering on average. What does help is that it is longer than the previous one I read so there was greater opportunity to develop the characters. But I still need more. There is still a connect-the-dot style to the writing that makes the flow choppy.
Finally, this is not a book about football. Yes, Nick is on a football team but the only part this plays in the book is the tension it creates between him and his father, who is obsessed with Nick playing professional while Nick is more than ready to leave the game behind.
Carter Murphy a 26-year-old has moved back to her parents after getting betrayed in the worst way possible. Dependable and moulded into the perfect wife for Joseph who was heading into a career in politics, only to be dumped spectacularly as he slept with her so called best friend and subsequently made her pregnant. Carter has always played it safe with her life being what she thought others wanted her to be, until she sees the hot guy at her sister’s engagement party after drinking copious amounts of champagne. Carter does something out of character and drags the stranger to the hallway where she goes in for a steamy kiss. Carter tells him she doesn’t want to know his name and she won’t give hers leaving him somewhat dumbfounded at this whirlwind.
Nick O'Shea. The college football star who also has his sights set on MMA fighting is a smooth talking, cocky guy who is used to getting his own way. A few months later after the kiss with the pretty girl in pink, he discovers Carter is the sister of his buddy Noah's girlfriend Reagan. Nick has a reputation for being the life and soul of the party and an all-round fun guy but underneath it all, he wants to find that special girl. He is attracted to Carter and sets about breaking down the walls she has built up. To say he is relentless is an understatement. The two become firm friends but the passion and attraction between the two was palpable. I wasn’t fooled by Nicks persona; underneath it all there is a sweet, caring swoon worthy guy.
This romcom friends to lovers romance had some laugh out moments and a real feel good aura to it. Beautifully written with plenty of content to keep the reader entertained. This was reading escapism at its best. There are food references and a song that stayed stuck in my head long after reading Drive. The fun-loving dialogue and banter between the two was well put together making me smile on more than one occasion. Drive also features some favourite characters from Punched and Penalty and it was lovely catching up with them. The attraction between the two was a slow burn, emphasising on getting to know each other and building a friendship mixed with sexual tension. The steamy moments happened; however it was great to have more of a story and character development because the chemistry just oozed from the pages.
I finished reading Drive with a huge smile and a fluttering heart. Its refreshing to have a real feel good read once in a while and this certainly hit the spot. The author did a fantastic job at capturing my attention from the first page right to the end. I couldn’t stop thinking about the book long after and it will be worth rereading just to have those funny moments all over again. Mr Chance tells the story in dual point of view and he certainly has a talent of putting together a great story. I don’t know how he comes up with all these ideas, but he is a storytelling genius and he deserves the five stars awarded for getting this book stuck in my head. I guess that’s his work done when that happens to a reader. Anyone that reads this is in for a real treat and all I can say is pick it up and get #Nickstracted like I did.
I was hooked on the story right from the beginning. Nick is the most adorable and cocky, funny, sweet and sexy guy. *Insert heart eyes here*.
I totally loved him as the main male lead in this. I also really liked his best friends and I can’t wait to read their books too.
Carter was a pretty cool female lead, and I totally understood her insecurities. Hind-sight is a wonderful thing, so it was great to see her learning to become herself again and revelling in her, freedom, for lack of a better word, and her confidence slowly coming back. I also liked both of her sisters, and her Dad wasn’t really in it much, but theres one particular bit at the end that made me love him instantly. You’ll know what I’m talking about when you read this, or you’ll already know if you have read the book already.
I sped through this book and I really enjoyed it. I laughed a lot, Nick is a really funny character, and so swoony as well. This was just a really enjoyable and easy read. Theres not really any angst and the storyline plays out nicely.
Well done to Jacob Chance and I can’t wait to read more of his work.
P.S. Where can I get that Nick shirt? (No spoilers here, but you’ll know the shirt I mean once you’ve read the book).

'I want to date you,kiss you,make you laugh and occasionally annoy you..' (Nick)
Right from the Prologue,I was hooked! Set at the Engagement Party for Reagan and Noah (from Punched),Carter (Reagan's older sister) who's not long out of an engagement,has insecurities about herself as a result of what happened with her ex,always the 'Good Girl',deciding she wants something more, shares a pretty hot an heavy kiss with a stranger (as the blurb states)...who turns out to be Nick (who featured in both Penalty and Punched)...a football player,who's passion for MMA is becoming more of a focus for his future.
Fast forward and they come into contact again,Nick is some character,he was hilarious in both the previous books,but in this he is so much more,and I think he might just be my favorite!
He knew from the start who Carter was,even though she is four years older than him (she's 26) he is smitten and is on a mission to win her heart.
Along the way, we get not only some laugh out loud moments,there is obvious chemistry between them,and the passion builds slowly, but OMG they are HOT together! There is also some angst thrown in,which almost had me want to throw my kindle ( all I'll say is TABBY-Nick's twin sister!!!)We have cameo's from not only Noah/Reagan but Brady and Harlow(Penalty),and it was great to see where they were at in their relationships,along with other characters previously seen in both books,which in turn,could be potential future story-lines.
I don't want to say too much more as to the whole story,as you should read it for yourselves,it is easily read as a Standalone,but I loved the connections to the other books I've mentioned,and personally,I think that Jacob has created not only a great story,which engages the reader from beginning to end,but the character's are one's that I'd love to read more about.
Get ready to be #Nickstracted !!
Wow what another fab book by such a great writer... this book has characters from Jacobs other books Punched and Penalty but can definitely be read as a stand-alone also. (Although i recommend reading all of Jacobs words if you can!)
This story is about cheeky witty hot Nick and how he first meets Carter at an engagement party but after their meeting is cut short he cant seem to get her out of his head.... cue a few months later when friend/family commitments brings them back together which starts them getting to know each other properly.
Even though Nick is abit of a ladies man i just felt i instantly liked him...and loved the way he managed to make Carter feel comfortable after all she had been through in her last relationship and LOVED his choice of tshirts! Would read about this couple forever!
