Blog Tour & Review--- Lonesome Beds & Bumpy Roads by Becca Ann & Tessa Marie


Lexie Boggs has dealt with enough drama for one teenage girl, and just when she thinks it's about over, the father who abandoned her a decade ago shows up looking for redemption. At least… that’s what he says. 

 Ryan Parker thinks his future is set. He’s got a sweet job set up, graduation on the horizon, and a lifetime of dreams he’s planned with his girlfriend, Lexie—including a king-sized bed for their soon-to-be apartment. Only a slight snag tugs at the fantasy when Lexie starts putting aside all she’s worked hard on for her deadbeat dad and his “sickness.” 

 Suddenly school is the only time spent together, and as Ryan expresses his suspicions about why Daddy Boggs is really back, Lexie pulls away, hoping Ryan is wrong but fearing he’s right. And as graduation approaches, Ryan and Lexie struggle to keep the futures they thought they had firmly intact from crumbling all over their now lonely king-sized bed.

5- Stars of Awesomesauce Review!

"My lips tug at the thought of my boyfriend and best friend, Ryan. As long as he's in my life, I couldn't ask for anything more. Okay, maybe that's not totally true. I can always ask for more chocolate."

Such a great ending to an incredible series!! I was drawn into these books because I'm a sucker for "friends to lovers" stories.
 But they were so much more.

In this last book, you witness how strong Ryan and Lexie's friendship and love truly is. You also see how one certain event, or person, could change everything.

"I miss my best friend. And the weirdest part of it is that she never went anywhere."

Ten years after he left her and her mom, Lexie's father is back in the picture. Showing up out of nowhere and throwing their lives a curveball they never saw coming. Not only does it shift Lexie world, but Ryan's as well. He's slowly loosing her to the man that abandoned her all those years ago. 

Ryan doesn't trust her father, or what he's been telling her. But he supports her decisions because he loves her...even if it's pulling them apart.

"Please don't make me choose. I can't choose between you and him. That's not fair."
"I'm not making you choose. I just love you too much to keep quiet about it."

But don't think this book is all sad and no fun! In true Becca and Tessa form, they wrote a book that has as many laughs as serious situations. Lexie and Ryan had me laughing out loud! Also, you can't have them without Nate, Kaylee and Brett. 

Reading about these five characters makes me miss high school and the bonds that you make. You can take people that are so different, but they have a common bond...they need each other.

I can't tell you how many times I thought, "I did that!" or "That's just like my friend so and so." That's what makes me love this book/series! It's relatable no matter how old you are.

"You're a pig."
"And you love me."
"God knows why."
"Oh, I can show you why."
"I don't think God will approve."
"I never said he would."

Goodness me. I just enjoy a good young love story! The innocence of it all. The first time experiences that stay with you forever. 

Lexie and Ryan go through a lot in this last installment of their story. Some parts you wouldn't want to wish upon anyone, but it's life. Lexie's dad returning was just the start of that curveball. 

"I love you so dang much."
"Why's that?"
"Because you can make me laugh even when I'm broken."
"You are not broken."

Thank you Becca and Tessa for creating such loveable characters that I loved right from the first page until the last in the series. Lexie, Ryan, Nate, Kaylee, Brett, Pop-Pop and Grams will forever be in my heart! 

I'll always remember the nail polish, ponytail braids, car-fixing, magic trick ways of these guys! 

"Because I know that you love me, and I shouldn't take that for granted. And I especially shouldn't push you aside for someone who hasn't been there for me."
"He's your--"
"My dad. But you...You are my family."
