About The Book
It was supposed to be the trip of a lifetime...
In reality it was a business trip, prettied up as a romantic mini break, but the man behind the wheel was meant to be Candice Hart’s boss and (married but separated, I swear!) lover. Not Danny the new guy!
Not only is Candice faced with a new driver, but the office’s far too handsome hipster expects her to share the cramped space inside his “fully” restored VW Beetle, aka The Love Bug, and put up with his constant opinions about her life…
Before long she is tired of playing the ‘good girl’ and, with Danny’s help, is determined to finally show the world the real Candice Hart!

About The Author
When she was fifteen-years-old, Portia MacIntosh fell in with a bad crowd… rockstars.
After disappearing on tour and living the rock ‘n’ roll lifestyle for a few years, Portia landed a job in the music industry – but only so that she didn’t have to join the real world just yet.
Now in her twenties, Portia is ready to spill the beans on the things she has witnessed over the years. Well, kind of. If her famous friends knew that she was borrowing their lives to inspire her fiction, they would stop inviting her on tour and banish her from the inner circle. Then she really would have to rejoin the real world, and she’s still not ready.
Portia only started writing novels to share her secrets, but then she realised she actually quite liked writing – maybe even more than she likes living on a bus with a bunch of smelly boys – and has since tried her hand at writing about other things.
Drive Me Crazy is the type of story you demolish, once you pick it up you are transported to a world where cleaning, working and eating are just distractions and not necessities to survive! The story is about Candice, and how her life is turned upside down when her romantic getaway with her boss and lover is cancelled due to unforeseen circumstances, okay I am saying that because if I tell you why I would ruin it and I hate spoilers! So she finds herself of on a tour of England with the annoying but attractive king of the nerds Danny and she is in for one hell of an adventure.
So off she goes on an adventure that may just inspire her to stand up on her own two feet, to realise she is stuck in a rut, that maybe being pristine and utterly robotic isn't who she is, maybe she is the girl who dances on the stage, maybe she is the girl who gets drunk and wakes up with a tattoo on her behind. Maybe she is the girl who gets the guy by being herself.
This is a proper British contemporary love story, full of adventure, exploits, toasters, strip clubs and projectile vomiting, you will laugh till it hurts, you will giggle till you snort. Girls in this day in age, nobody wants the guy who tells you what to wear, what to do and how to act, you want the guy who pushes you, who strives to make you laugh, who drives VW Beetle and calls you bro! Its a new age don't you know? We are equal now, but shush I am not sure everyone knows it quite yet!
Follow Candice's journey, fall in love, dance on bars and remember the best way to be happy is to be you!
