Asphalt Cowboy's Girl

Asphalt Cowboy's Girl
by Marie Savage

Never knowing what to expect from an author you haven’t read before I picked this up and started reading. What I found was a lovely story about lives its ups and downs as well as passion and finding what is truly important. In Luke’s eyes he has it all or pretty much all as he rides the roads having no real comment, no one telling him what to do and living life. He isn’t missing out on much with girls lining up for his attention. You do have to give it to him he is straight up with them, what you see is what you get with no strings attached. It is really hard not to like him with his playboy way, but he has heart, kindness and really is a gentleman. Just the kind of man every woman thinks she can change lol.

Aimee is the totally opposite her life hasn’t been easy, she doesn’t have anything she wants. On the run from an abusive ex searching for her dream it looks like life just throw in a few more bad punches. I can’t think of anything worse than being so far from home and the place you are going. You can’t turn back you have no one to call for help, all alone with places to go but no way to get there. In a lot of ways I can relate with her, been in the abusive relationship is hard even harder to get away. My car has never been stolen but it has been broken down with no one really to turn to for help. When you leave a relationship you have to leave your friends behind since most likely they are the abuser friends. It was very easy for me to relate to Aimee.

I thought this was well written, the plot was great, the characters very likable. The author did take me in giving me a believable story. It was easy to follow, short read that makes you smile and remember days long ago when life was harder, tougher, before you found the man who made life worth living. It was great to see both sides of the story from both Aimee and Luke. Seeing how they saw things and what they thought. There is a little drama and a lot of passion, very well blended pulling the reader in. I really enjoyed this and can't wait to read more of her work.

On the highway, bad things can happen …
Aimee Jo Elliot isn’t having a good day. Her long anticipated journey to California is cut short when her car is stolen. Stranded at a truck stop in Alabama, with no car, no money, and most of all, no hope, she’s desperate to get back on the road. California holds the answer to her dreams and an escape from the danger she’s left behind in Georgia. Accepting a ride from the sexy truck driver has its own set of risks, but she never considered it would be to her heart.

The life of an asphalt cowboy …
Luke McIntyre has life all figured out. He owns his own rig, makes his own rules, and only answers to himself. The solitude of life on the road suits him just fine. Not one for permanent relationships, he has no problems picking up temporary lovers. And he always makes sure they know the score—hot sex, respect, but no strings. His quiet life is shot to hell, however, when he offers the Georgia beauty a ride. He soon discovers that rules are made to be broken.

In for the long haul …
Luke and Aimee Jo soon realize their simple four-day journey is anything but simple. An instant attraction sidetracks their well-made plans and dreams. When they reach California, decisions must be made. Will they go their separate ways, or journey on together?
