So, “Wanderlust” is a romance story that will take readers around the world and tackle difficult conversation topics.
What would you do if you were allowed to travel the world? All expenses paid. The only caveat is that you must go with the person randomly selected on the contacts of your phone.
Dylan is a writer who is feeling stuck in life. She feels like she is constantly having to prove herself to her boss that has unrealistic expectations. Dylan wanted to do bigger things but thought she was missing the mark.
One day, a random opportunity came up and she called the radio show. With that, she won an all-expenses paid around the world. But the thing is, the only requirement is that they have to select a random person on her phone. They selected a man she met at a bar named Jack and hasn’t met since. Awkward. But he agreed to do it anyways.
Elle was able to use that time to write about her experiences in hopes that she would be able to do more at her job. So even though they were at odds with each other, they still traveled and got to know one another.
I wish I got a POV of Jack. Just to understand his life and character. I wanted to go deeper and felt I wasn’t getting that from a single POV.
Even though it was about traveling, there wasn’t much description of the places they visited. The appeal of this book is that they got to see a lot of places and I didn’t get much of that.
Even though this was a romance book, there were a lot of heavy topics in this book that I wasn’t prepared for. This wasn’t a light and fluffy read for sure.
I received an advance review copy for free, and I am leaving this review voluntarily.
