Great story. I had read a sample & decided not to read it because I wasn't impressed with the first little bit. But I read a review that encouraged me to keep reading, so I did! Glad I did. I connected well with the characters & thought the story line was pretty unique. There was enough going on that I stayed interested, & there was even a little mystery that actually surprised me. The best part was that a lot of the events were random, but they're on an unplanned roadtrip across the country, so it works. The whole "rough" sex part, in my opinion, seemed a little misplaced. It was like she was trying to reach out to the fifty shades crowd but it didn't fit well in this story.
