The Relationtrip by Elana Johnson

The Relationtrip Review

The Relationtrip:A Slow Burn Travel
by Elana Johnson is the story of Sloane and Murphy, best friends who realize their relationship could be more.

This book was such a sweet read as Sloane as Murphy’s relationship transitioned from friends to more.

Sloane is admittedly gunshy because her fiance left her at the altar and her confidence was shaken. I understood her hesitancy, but there were times when I wanted to shake her because she couldn’t see the great guy standing in front of her.

I loved Murphy! He was a sweetheart who was willing to give up everything for Sloane
I wished sometimes he didn’t give in to Sloane quite so easily.

Overall, I enjoyed The Relationtrip. It was a nice light-hearted read with plenty of fun banter, exotic locales, and a little bit of angst.

The Relationtrip will remind readers that love is worth fighting for, even if there’s some pain involved.

If you enjoy reading friends to lovers or slow burn romances, you’ll enjoy The Relationtrip. The Relationtrip is a clean and wholesome / sweet romance.

I received an advanced reader’s copy from the author; a positive review was not required.

About The Relationtrip

Question: What do a reclusive author and an outgoing real estate agent have in common?

Answer: Nothing.

But fate brought them together on a vacation five years ago, and as Logan and Sloane prepare for their annual get-together, there are sparks flying between them.

When Logan Murphy, my accidental best friend, calls to say our annual mid-winter trip has to be “redone,” he’s already got the solution.

Belize. An adults-only resort, and we leave in two days.

I’m giddy with excitement, because I need this trip more than I can express. When I see Murph standing in the airport, my heart twitches to a beat it hasn’t since my fiancé left me to tell our friends and family that he couldn’t make it to the wedding.

So it’s a short-lived twitch, because I’m never going to get into the dating boxing ring again—and least of all with my best friend.

I’ve never told Sloane what I do for a living, and she doesn’t know how I feel about her either. But I want her to know all of my secrets.

I want my best friend in my life more than once a year, and I’ve already started penning a happily-ever-after for the two of us.

This year, I tell myself, as my crush on the vibrant woman is at least two years old now.

If only I knew how to tell her…

This is a standalone, slow-burn travel romance that will make you smile, gasp, and cheer for Logan and Sloane as they figure out who they are…and who they want—at home or on vacation.
