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.
I have no clue what to even say about this book….. It was amazing. When you first start reading you think you know but have no idea! This is about second chances and pushing the boundaries. I loved everything about this book. We get a great look into a….. Well say second chance romance, in a away, but overall about new beginnings. This is one of the funniest books I’ve read in a long time!!!! I love everything this book represents and so much more.
Chance was amazing it’s that simple. He was funny, cocky, sexy, just all around an amazing guy. He took life by the balls and didn’t let a bad past win. He loved hard, and played harder. He didn’t let his past define him and that made me love him so much more.
Aubrey is a great heroine. She was tough even tho her past. She pushed the norm and didn’t give a crap what others said. I love how funny and caring she was. She fell hard and fast for chance and was hurt when……. Happened. I love that she kept things from the road trip even tho she was hurt. She was just a great heroine!!!
The way they start out isn’t what you would picture a perfect beginning. It worked for them. The first half they were friends that became more. No matter how hard the hero fought the attraction was there from the start. Seeing the story progress we get to see a different side of Chance. He became an amazing man over time. I hated how they stayed apart so long but That’s what makes this story so great, getting back to what might have been. I’m not saying they didn’t annoy me at times, cube because well most do but if they can redeem themselves then I will love them, in this book they all redeem themselves
We mainly her to see the hero and heroine. Without giving too much away I loved Chances sister. We don’t get to see a whole to of her but she was amazing. This book centers around this couple, this couple overcoming what they thought they knew and coming out ahead. The one character I want to talk about….. I really can’t because you have to read it for yourself, but I loved HIM!!!!! He was a huge part of this book and without him…… This story wouldn’t be as amazing. Please read this book even if it’s just to find out about him.
We have read a plot similar to this one but then the big moment happens and your just not sure what to think, you question everything you thought you knew, you will laugh so hard, you will feel for the hero and heroine because of what is being dealt. You you respect chance and love…..
With being Co-authors I get scared things won’t go the right way, but to be honesty his book seems like one person wrote it, I know that’s the whole point, but the hero and heroine flowed amazing thru the whole book.
Read this book. If you need a great laugh your heart to hurt then it being soothed by an amazing alpha male with an accent this book is for you, you will not regret reading this book!!!!
A knock at the door made me jump.
With a huff, I got out of bed and stood on my tiptoes to look out the peephole. Why were those things always so high on the door anyway? I was surprised to find no one standing on the other side. Maybe I’d imagined it.
I flicked on the lights. The sound wasn’t coming from the entrance door. It was coming from an interior door I hadn’t even noticed before.
I unfastened the top lock and cracked it open just enough so I could see what he wanted. And there he stood.
Wearing only dark gray boxer briefs that hugged him like a second skin.
It took a minute to understand what he was doing there, even though he was holding up a toothbrush in question.
“I thought we had established I wasn’t a serial killer already.”
I opened the door wider.
Oh lord. Stop that. Right now.
“I must have left my toothpaste in my saddlebag in the car.”
I swallowed hard. “Uh huh.”
He cocked his head to the side, and his brows dipped in. “Can I borrow yours?”
“Oh. Yeah, sure.”
He walked past me and let himself into my bathroom. I waited at the door.
“You got an awful lot of girly crap in here for one night,” he said with a jumbled mouth full of toothpaste from the bathroom. “Private Collection Tuberose Gardenia.”
He was reading my Estee Lauder perfume bottle.
I heard him rinse and spit. Then there was a gargling sound. He used my mouthwash, too. Sure, help yourself.
He walked out and flicked off the bathroom light. “Is tuberose a rose?”
I shook my head, still confused by the whole situation going on.
“That’s why,” he murmured.
“I couldn’t figure out what you smelled like all day. Not sure I ever smelled a Tuberose before.” He shrugged and walked back into his room but not before turning back. “Even those little black lacy underwear smell like tuberose.”
My eyes bulged. I’d taken off my bra and panties and left them on the bathroom counter.
“Relax. I’m teasing. Do I look like an underwear sniffer to you?”
“Night, Aubrey.” He graced me with a dimple and disappeared.
AH-BREE. Damn him.
I locked the door and checked it twice, unclear if it was for my safety or his. His voice saying my name was on audio replay inside my head, getting softer and softer like a soothing lullaby with each breath as I drifted off to dreamland.
Until the knock came again.
