Blurb: The road trip was definitely a bad idea. Having already flambéed her culinary career beyond recognition, Rita Clarkson is now stranded in God-Knows-Where, New Mexico, with a busted-ass car and her three temperamental siblings, who she hasn’t seen in years. When rescue shows up—six-feet-plus of hot, charming sex on a motorcycle—Rita’s pretty certain she’s gone from the frying pan right into the fire . . .
Review: Definitely a book for fans of Shannon Stacey’s Kowalski family series, this dysfunctional family starts on an eternally damned road trip across the United States to make a deadline for New Years. They’re planning to replicate an insane idea from their deceased mother’s past. Why? Because they’re reeling with grief and they’re just crazy enough to fall in line with their sister Peggy’s plans.
Stranded in New Mexico while their vehicle’s being fixed, Rita meets her match in Jasper Ellis. Jasper is trying to overcome his hound dog reputation in town. Unfortunately, his attraction for Rita is too strong for him to resist her. Can he convince her that he’s worth a long shot?
