A Book Review
Luke is a love ‘em and leave ‘em kind of guy. He has a girl in every “port” or stop, they know the drill, have a little fun until it’s time to say good bye. He’s a truck driver, a wanderer, he has no time for relationships.
Aimee Jo has a dream of becoming a singer. She is on her way to California for an audition, well, she was, until someone stole her car and everything she owns. Stuck in a truck stop with no one to call, no money and no hope, she is determined not to give up.
Luke doesn’t know why he offers to help the beautiful young girl. It goes against his character, his motto. He realizes this girl isn’t his usually kind of girl, but something about her won’t allow him to leave her stranded at the truck stop.
This road trip adventure romance is a great foil for this couple to get to know each other and fall in love.
Two stubborn hearts won’t tell the other how they feel. What will it take for one of them to take a chance and risk their heart?
I loved this story and felt as if I could hear country music flowing through every page. The characters were strong and believable. Their relationship growth felt real and organic. The changes in the characters as they grew together felt natural. This is one of the best books I’ve read, part of it was because of my own childhood dream of being a truck driver, my love of country music. I related to Aimee Jo, she was a good girl who’d didn’t know her own worth.
If you’re looking for a different kind of hero and a heroine who is both fragile and strong, I think you’ll love Asphalt Cowboy’s Girl.
