Publisher's Summary

This unlikely getaway driver never expected to help the mayor escape....

After a six-year absence, Addison Potts is back in Charleston to stir things up. And what better place to make her villainous return than her estranged cousin’s wedding? Only, the nuptials hit a snag when the bride doesn’t show, leaving Addison to play getaway driver for the jilted groom - a groom whose heartbreaking smile and deep, Southern drawl she should not be noticing.... 

Elijah Montgomery DuPont is the future mayor of Charleston. From his military career to city hall, every detail of his life has been meticulously planned. Until now. His only respite from life’s sudden upheaval is Addison, his new, improbable best friend. She makes him happy. She grounds him. And public disapproval be damned, he’s not willing to give her up. But with an election on the line and public pressure rising, Addison - and the cruel hand of fate - might not give him a choice.

Need new reader

While the story is good and compelling, the female reader is annoying. The male reader does a good job, making me wish the whole book was read by him. The female reader insists on reading her character as a woman who whines or talks in a “baby” voice (thinking it’s sexy???) during the sex scenes. When she speaks for the male it’s in a stereotypical male gruff voice that just sounds stupid! She has pulled the female gender back into the “woe is me” I’m helpless century. Tessa Bailey, don’t let this female narrator pull your story down!

Sexy and Fun

Getaway Girl was a fun, sweet, (super) sexy friends to lovers story. A fun twist on the runaway bride story where we get the POV of the groom who was left standing at the altar.

“When he’s around me, I don’t seem capable of anything but praying he can’t hear my heartbeat.”

Getaway Girl had not only a dirty talking hero (my kryptonite) but also a heroine who could hold her own in a dirty talk throw down!! Addison is sassy and snarky. I definitely wanted the best for her and rooted for her to get her HEA.

“I understand Mama now. I’m not mad at her anymore, but I’m… I want to be better than her. I don’t want to be someone’s regret.”

A light angst, really enjoyable story. I listened to some of it on audiobook and it helped make my commute enjoyable!

What a wonderful surprise!

Really liked this book. Probably would have given it a solid four stars because of the silly lack of communication issues, but there was great chemistry and the characters were genuinely really good, and the heroine made me laugh loads of times so it got bumped up to 5 stars. The dirty talk was written well and didn’t make me cringe like many books do ..up until the female narrator’s squeaky squealy baby voice for one bit.. but that was over quickly fortunately and the narration was great for the rest of the book. I was totally hooked into the whole story and fully felt like I knew the characters by the end and was rooting for them.
