Most Helpful Customer Reviews
Very sweet and witty story. Loved it.
I loved this book, it made me return from my lunch break later than I should have for a couple of days. It was inspiring to watch Mary Kate leave her abusive husband and figure things out for herself alongside Smoothie, the hot, younger Southern guy she picks up on the side of the road. Sure picking up a hitchhiker is a bad idea, but this is fiction and not an advice column for women. There was some great chemistry between the two main characters that kept the storyline fun and steamy. I am definitely going to read some of Jenny's other books and highly recommend this one!
