Synopsis from Goodreads:

For Lacey Callihan, things couldn’t get much worse. She’s working a dead-end job, living with a dead-end boyfriend and stuck in a dead-end town. When Lacey’s boyfriend steals her life savings and hits her for questioning him, it’s the last straw. She skips town in her rust-heap of a car – which she can only pray will get her as far as Texas. And it does. Spluttering to a final stop just as she crosses the border. But when two ultra-hot cowboys pull up in their convertible red Mustang and offer her a ride, Lacey has a feeling her luck is about to change …

My Review:

This novella is well and thoughtfully written. Jones’ tone makes the story feel personal on many levels. She invites you into the story as if you were there with the main character. She creates an amazingly hot story that is also believable. Jones tells the story of these three individuals while allowing your imagination to run wild with the possibilities. I did, however, feel a bit disjointed in the epilogue. Don’t get me wrong, it was a brilliant wrap up to this fantastic tale, but the tone of the story changed drastically. It was enough to make me stop and do a double take.

The main characters in this novel were quite well developed for a novella. Jones lets you know them in the past and in the present. You can also see who these people see themselves as being, and how they see each other. This all melds together to give you a cohesive picture of these individuals. You also understand how they came together as a group. The supporting cast was minimal, but also not necessary to the plot. The characters that Jones developed suited their purpose perfectly.

Overall, this is definitely a story that lives up to its name. It is, without a doubt, a wild ride. I’d thoroughly recommend it to any who enjoy a quick, hot read.
