Title: Joyride                                                                                   

Author: Anna Banks

Publication Date: June 2nd 2015


A popular guy and a shy girl with a secret become unlikely accomplices for midnight pranking, and are soon in over their heads—with the law and with each other—in this sparkling standalone from NYT-bestselling author Anna Banks.

It’s been years since Carly Vega’s parents were deported. She lives with her brother, studies hard, and works at a convenience store to contribute to getting her parents back from Mexico.

Arden Moss used to be the star quarterback at school. He dated popular blondes and had fun with his older sister, Amber. But now Amber’s dead, and Arden blames his father, the town sheriff who wouldn’t acknowledge Amber's mental illness. Arden refuses to fulfill whatever his conservative father expects.

All Carly wants is to stay under the radar and do what her family expects. All Arden wants is to NOT do what his family expects. When their paths cross, they each realize they’ve been living according to others. Carly and Arden’s journey toward their true hearts—and one another—is funny, romantic, and sometimes harsh.

My thoughts:

I'm highly anticipating this book! I have read Anna Bank's Syrena Legacy trilogy and I loved it. It's actually one of my favorite series. I'm a big fan of her writing and I'm sure that this book will be amazing!

  1. Oh me too I love the sounds of this one, and while I wasn't the biggest fan of her paranormal series, this is my fav genre and I did like her writing, too! It also sounds super cute and with a touch of humor which is always good! ;)

  3. Haha, that sounds hilarious - to be accomplices of midnight pranking! I'm pretty certain this book will be full of humor and light-heartedness, even if they're probably being chased by the law ;) Thanks for sharing!
