Review Submitted By: Korena for Alpha Book Review
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.
(Received ARC in exchange for our honest review.)
How about starting a new life going cross country and meeting a hunk of an Aussie on the way- that is what happen to Aubrey. She needed her tire changed and Chance needed a ride because his motorcycle needed repair. The adventure that lasted eight days is absolutely hilarious including a fainting goat!! The chemistry between Aubrey and Chance is HOT!
I was Chance’s biggest cheerleader. I wanted him to be with Aubrey. I would love to have a real-life Chance!! This story will have you glued to your Kindle!!
Cocky Bastard is the nickname Aubrey gave Chance because the initials CB were on his motorcycle bag.
Fun and enjoyable!!
