Blurb: He was someone who belonged in my wildest fantasies instead of a rest stop in the middle of Nebraska.
A sexy, cocky, Australian named Chance was the last person I expected to run into on my cross-country drive.
When my car broke down, we made a deal. Next thing I knew, we were traveling together, spending sexually-tense nights in hotels and taking unplanned detours.
My ordinary road trip turned into the adventure of a lifetime. It was all fun and games until things got intense.
I wanted him, but Chance wouldn’t make a move. I thought he wanted me too, but something was holding him back.
I wasn’t supposed to fall for the cocky bastard, especially when I knew we’d be going our separate ways.
All good things must come to an end, right?
Except our ending was one I didn’t see coming.
“What am I supposed to do?” She eventually whispered. I blew out a heavy stream of air. “Do what’s in your heart, Aubrey. If that’s not being with me—it will suck—I’m not going to lie. But I want you to be happy. That’s how I’m sure I’m in love with you. If the choice is you being happy or me…there is no choice. You come first.”
Eh, I was a bit underwhelmed with this story. It tested my believability in some scenes. I actually put this book down after a couple chapters because she mentioned how much of an Adonis he was. If there is one thing that will make me put a book down fast it is when the FIRST thing that is mentioned is how hot he is. I mean, I get it, physical attraction is important, but when its the first thing mentioned it just makes my interest level plummet.
The relationship was pretty fast paced. I mean, she allowed him to ride with her halfway across the country after knowing him a whopping 20 minutes! I just couldn’t get past that. That raised a flag for me because in this day and age EVERYONE knows not to pick up strangers. Maybe I just can’t suspend my belief but the situation seemed way to easily manufactured to get them in close quarters for long periods of time. And I know it’s order for them to form a bond quickly but it was just too convenient for me. It didn’t really impress me. And it kinda went down hill from there.
I will say this; The chemistry was pretty hot though. Like Rose and Jack in the Titanic steamy!
I didn’t click with Chance’s character. I found his stalker mannerisms a bit over the top. I didn’t see how their relationship was that deep to begin with. He seems more invested in the relationship than she was, especially for all the things he did for her. Frankly I didn’t think she was worth the effort on his part. I would have walked after a week.
Aubrey was a forgettable character. I honest to god had to look up her name while writing this! That’s how much she didn’t stand out. Man, reading this back makes me think I should lower my rating even more. Anyway, I’m glad this isn’t a series so I don’t have to worry about more books. But hey, not everyone will have the same experience as me. In fact, my co-pilot Lenore happened to love this book.
