Left behind by everyone he’s ever loved, Alonzo Grover lives as if there’s no future. The discovery of a letter from his deceased boyfriend breaks him out of his rut and spurs him to right an old wrong, but the local stick-in-the-mud sheriff’s lieutenant seems determined to ruin all his plans.
Lieutenant Sebastian Haas despises tangling with his small town’s most promiscuous party kid. Alonzo’s youth and recklessness drive him crazy in more ways than one… As does the uncomfortable secret they share. But when Haas’s estranged family arrives in town to throw a wedding he wants no part of, he ends up jumping into Alonzo’s car to avoid everyone.
Together, they wind up on an unexpected road trip. When they hit one setback after another, it looks like they might kill each other before they make it back home. Unless they find something better to do than fight.
Most Helpful Customer Reviews
Elisabeth Staab has this wonderful ability to bring opposites together, but she blew me away with this one. Right from the start, I was wondering how she was going to make it work between Haas and Alonzo. I don't think those two could have been any more different, which made for a lot of interesting issues between them. When you add in their individual troubles, one can only wonder how the heck these two could ever make it work. There was drama, passion, heartbreak and one of the creepiest villains ever, but there was no denying the strong chemistry between Alonzo and Sebastian. I felt really bad that they had so much going against them, but it made for a hell of a story. If you are looking for a book to take your emotions on a crazy roller coaster ride, pick this one.
