My name is Liz Foley. I love my accounting job because I’d rather deal with numbers than talk to people. 

My best traits:

I have (RBF) Resting Bitch Face.
I give snarky come-backs.
I have no friends.

My worst traits:

I speak in run-on sentences when I get nervous.
I’m attracted to assholes.
I’m broke.

Enter Finnigan Walsh – the new guy at work. 

His best traits:

He’s kind of hot, I suppose.
He has a working car.
He sings to me and brings me coffee. 
Nothing ever gets to him, even when I add more people to our carpool.

His worst traits:

See above

I don’t like him. At least, that’s what I keep telling myself. 
After all, it’s not about how fast you get there. It’s the journey. Right?
Damn this carpool.

You’d better buckle up.

Mariah’s Review

5 Stars

Absolutely delightful…all of the feels and laughs you need in a book.

I am so pleased to have been given the opportunity to review Confessions of a Carpool Captive. This book really had it all. It was very entertaining, quite hilarious, and had tender moments too.

Liz is a loner. She’s satisfied with her life of solitude.  Who needs to talk anyway?  All of that changes when she is forced into a carpool with Finn. Finn is amazing. He’s funny. He antogonizes Liz in the best way. The dynamic of their relationship is awesome. I loved their back and forth and I loved Finn’s persistence. Liz is so sarcastic and stubborn.  Finn, well, he just loves to push her buttons.  This makes for a wildly hilarious and just plain great character interaction.

What I really loved about this book is how characters are added and Liz changes. I love each character in the book because they all come together to make this story complete.  Confessions of a Carpool Captive really is hilarious.  I did cry a few times, too, because the writing is just so heartfelt.  This book is just so good. You need to one click this one right away.
