Tell Me About It
There’s no way Lydia--oldest and most responsible of the tight-knit Rodriguez clan--is going to let her nosy family find out about the uncharacteristic work screw-up that landed her a paid suspension. To keep busy and avoid panic, she enrolls in a life enrichment class. The first guest speaker is a handsome artist with a wicked smile and eyes that melt right through her.

Even the “ice princess” can’t help but feel an immediate spark that lights her blood on fire.

Isaac Ortiz is unquestionably the sexiest man Lydia has ever met. The talented son of a famous Spanish artist, he’s constantly moving from one new glamorous city to another, working if and when the muse visits him.

He also has a stare that makes Lydia’s heart race and hands that look more than capable of making her scream with pleasure. She shouldn’t be attracted to this free-spirit who makes all his own rules--but she is.

There’s just one hiccup....Isaac is nineteen.

Lydia has lived her entire life firmly inside the box, and being with a younger man is definitely outside the safe confines she enjoys.

So why can’t she stay away from him? And why is she seriously considering his proposition to take off to a place she’s never been...just because?

When Lydia is invited back to work with a cleared name, she should be overjoyed.

But the reality is, Lydia doesn’t know what anchors her life anymore...or if she wants to be anchored at all. Should she travel the world with Isaac? Or continue down the road that she’s worked long and hard to pave for herself? Choosing one means losing the other, and Lydia isn’t sure if she’s ready to drift with the current that’s pulling her by the heart.
My Thoughts
I have no idea what to say for this review. I have loved this series from the moment I started reading Lengths, and to have Drift, the final book in my hands was an emotional moment. I was beyond excited to have a copy to read, but also sad as I knew it would be the last, it actually felt like I was losing a friend.

I was initially meant to get a copy of Drift for review as part of the blog tour, but a few delays with Steph and Liz making some final adjustments meant they were not ready on time, but we were able to add our email to have a copy gifted to us. When I saw that Drift had been released early I was one second away from clicking buy to get a copy, as I wasn't sure when I would be gifted a copy. When I found an email alerting me to my gift. I may have done a happy dance when I saw the email...and carried it one while I downloaded Drift. I literally dropped everything to read Drift, and I vegged out in bed for a few hours with Pepsi and grapes to keep me going. I did not move and even ignored my cats attention seeking purrs to read. Nothing was going to stop me from finishing this book...nothing.

I'm Lydia Rodriguez.
Stone Cold Lydia Rodriguez.
I can handle anything.
I absolutely, beyond a doubt, loved this book. I loved getting to see a different side to Lydia and seeing how Isaac can bring it out of her. Not so straight laced and serious with some very very sexy times. I love the chemistry between this duo that is so instantaneous, yet takes forever for them to do something about it. We also get to see a different side to CeCe which I thought was hilarious.

The epilogue had me crying before I even started reading it, I knew it was the final chapter in this series and I was crying knowing this would be the end of it all, but I bravely fought through the tears to read it, and what an epilogue it was. I loved everyone and everything about it (see how I'm not giving away hints) and it was the most perfect ending to this series, it was so much more than I expected it to be, it went above and beyond my expectations. I have copies of all of this series on my kindle app, but I NEED to get these for my bookshelves.
