Publisher's Summary

A double shot of devastating news turns Justin Evanson's life upside down. When he learns his father has cancer, and he has siblings he never knew existed, he leaves everything behind and moves to Virginia to support his dad as he tries to make amends with his family - a family Justin's not sure he has a place in. Things go from bad to worse when he discovers his recent hookup is his newfound sister's brother-in-law.

Drew Sinclair never expected to see Justin after their night at the club or to discover their family connection. If anyone found out, it would give Drew's brother another reason to hate him. But there's something about Justin that draws him in, and it's not only because they burn up the sheets together.

One meeting leads to another, and before Justin realizes it, Drew has become the only thing in his world he feels is his. And for the first time in his life, Drew knows what it means to be needed. Being there for Justin and supporting him when things spiral out of control feels right. But with so much happening so quickly, it's hard to trust their feelings. Is this thing between them real? Or just a test drive before life forces them down two separate roads?

Enjoyed this book

I enjoyed this book- highly recommend. It’s a sweet, hot and heartbreaking love story. Drew and Justin find love unexpectedly- but sometimes that just the way love works.

Very enjoyable and I was sorry it had to end.

This was my first RH book. I laughed and cried and I'm looking forward to reading more.

So emotional!

I've loved the books in this series. The stories have all been so heartfelt and moving, and the characters are so wonderful. Nick & Bryce and Landon & Rod are great couples, but I think this book is my favorite of the 3- there was just something truly special about Drew and Justin. Test Drive was so much more emotional than I thought it would be. Lots of tears were shed over the course of my listen. I had to turn it off towards the end, when I was driving to work because I was afraid I was going to arrive looking like a complete wreck and scare my coworkers! But it was also sweet and hot and so endearing. Ms. Hart did a lovely job developing Justin and Drew and their story. You could definitely feel how conflicted Justin was, with everything that had been thrown at him- dealing with his father's failing health, finding out about his half-siblings, and the myriad of emotions that those things caused. Drew seemed to arrive on the scene at the perfect time. Not that he didn't have his own set of issues, with his own family, but he turned out to be a real support for Justin and I loved that about him. They had such a great rapport and understanding of each other. I fell hard for these two. Once again Sean Crisden did a terrific job with the narration. With the 2 other couples from the previous books making appearances in this one, not to mention the new characters, he had a lot of male voices to cover. And he nailed them all!

Yes, I would recommend Test Drive to my friends, the narration was very well done and story drew me in.

Crisden did a great job of bringing Justin to life and made him seem very authentic.

I easily could have listened to the book in one sitting (if I didn't have to work or take care of other basic needs!)

Taking a Chance with Life and Love

I finished this book yesterday... I cried while walking in the park... I cried for the loss of Justin’s father, I cried for the love found between Justin and Drew... and I cried because it shows that life in of itself always seems to right itself through pure love. The story itself weaves through family turmoil, self understanding, deep erotic needs and desires, but most importantly the ache and the need to love. Drew and Justin found their love through adversity and uncertainty and in the end the act of trying something enabled a happy and love filled life.

Love and Death

The angst in this book was not a surprise considering how book 2 ended, but it was still difficult to read. Not difficult in a bad way, but the fact that a secondary character is dying from cancer is still a difficult topic. Riley Hart did a really good job with exploring all the complicated emotions that come with confronting the death of a parent, especially a parent who’s done such terrible things like Justin and Landon’s father. How do you forgive a man who’s abandoned you? How do you forgive a man who’s hidden such a significant secret? There’s no easy answers and Riley Hart doesn’t pretend her characters have it figured out. With that in the background, the relationship between Drew and Justin was a nice contrast, although I felt we had less romance in this book than the others. There was just so many different familial issues that had to be dealt with. But don't worry, our guys still get their wonderful Happy Ever After.

Another hit!

What did you like best about this story?

This being the third book in the Crossroads series it was wonderful to see the characters from the previous books and the friendships that have grown throughout them. The tenderness between Justin and Drew was gorgeous, you really felt their relationship.

Have you listened to any of Sean Crisden’s other performances? How does this one compare?

Yes, I've listen to lots of Sean Crisden's performances and him narrating a book goes a long way to me buying it.

Any additional comments?

Now waiting for the novella in audio... :)
