It was a great dreamwhile it lasted. At twenty-five, Amber Halliday thought life on the road with one of Nashville's hottest bands was her ultimate fantasy come true. Then in the blink of an eye she finds herself abandoned at a truck stop in Kentucky. No money, no family and nowhere to go.
Navy veteran Joy Shepard, passing through on a cross-country trip, simply can’t ignore a woman in distress even if common sense tells her to drive on. She has room in her truck for Amber and a temporary job caring for her wheelchair-bound father once they reach Oakland. In a moment of weakness, she offers both.
Though grateful for the opportunity, Amber finds herself on pins and needles over Joy's obsessive tidiness and stringent rules. Little wonder, since Joy finds her slovenly and undisciplined. No way will these two opposites attract--a romance this thorny can only be headed right back where it started: nowhere.

This is a typical KG MacGregor story - good characters and a strong story. Fine for entertaining reading.
I love KG MacGregor's books. However, this one left a lot to be desired. The story would have been great had she not tried to make it a romance. I have never read a book where the two main characters had so little chemistry. I have no idea what they even saw in each other. Honestly, I found Amber to be a petulant teen and Joy to be a 45 year old killjoy (no pun intended), despite the fact that they were both supposed to be in their twenties. Add in an annoying liar of a child and you've got a recipe for a very mixed up romance. My advice is to skip this one.
