When a freak fast-food accident almost kills daydreaming city girl Lisa Flyte, she decides it's time to get a backbone and really start living out loud. But how is a shrinking violet like Lisa supposed to get tough all of a sudden after a lifetime of watching from the couch? Jack Hawkins, that's how. When Lisa finds out that the outdoor extremist needs a clueless urbanite to test his top-secret line of idiot-proof adventure gear, she gets the most outlandish idea of her life: she will be his undercover test dummy if he helps her become brave on their adventures in the wild.
They strike a deal. Lisa survives the treks, jumps, and dives (barely!) But can she use her bumbling...uh, blossoming outdoor moxie to become the alpha hero of her everyday life? Will she find the grit to pursue a career she really wants or the nerve to stand up to her bullying family? And will she get gutsy enough to go after Jack? He's a man who's not afraid of anything...except maybe falling for Lisa. (Synopsis courtesy of Amazon)
I loved this book. I know I can’t leave my book review with those four simple words and call it a day, but it’s the truth. From start to finish, there wasn’t a single moment I didn’t appreciate or enjoy while reading Miss Adventure. From Lisa’s constant fumbles and bumbles while she’s testing out Jack’s various outdoor equipment to the on-edge budding relationship these two are constantly fighting against, my only complaint was that there wasn’t more for me to read. Geralyn Corcillo has created fun, relatable characters, and I felt a tinge of sadness when I reached the final page to the story, which usually doesn’t happen for me.
I think a sequel is in order here. I’d really enjoy reading more of Lisa’s zany adventures and I want to see where her life has taken her. Will she continue dealing with her family’s drama well after the money they’ve practically stolen from her has run out? What about Jack? Will they be an item, or will their constant cat and mouse approach to romance finally run its course? There are a lot of outside forces at work here, constantly working against those two. If they beat the odds, it would make for a great love story, and I for one would be the first in line to read all about it!
