Lily loves traveling on her job since no one can do it better than her. Being out on the open road gives her plenty of time to reflect and avoid unwanted attention, but somehow it always finds her....
When she comes across Ryder, first at a grocery store, then at a rest stop, sexual desire sparks and she knew she had to have him. If only her ex hadn't shown up, igniting a fantasy she never thought possible.
Seeing Alex in a whole new light, Lily realizes second chances are in order, but will she have to choose between the two men? Or could she be happy with both?
Laci Paige has created a short story long on steamy fantasies as a woman who often travels the lonely roads gets to experience the dream of a lifetime and a dramatic change for her future. Lily has felt unfulfilled for a long time now and she thought breaking up with Alex would make things better, but it just intensified her feelings and when she meets Ryder on the road it increases her unsettled feelings and leads to a night with her old love and new.
Lily is very vocal about what she wants in the bedroom and it was refreshing seeing a female be so assertive and the most experienced of the characters. Alex is caring and comforting, if a bit set in his ways. Ryder's experienced loss but is ready to start his life over and fulfill all the fantasies he's ever had. Even though their personalities are different they come together beautifully with a lot of sexual tension leading to some steamy interludes.
Upon turning the final page I'm left with a satisfying story full of steamy sexual interludes leading to a quickly achieved conclusion that seems a bit too perfect. The characters have distinct personalities on a very basic level but manage to create a unified family and shows a story full of promise for Ms. Paige's writing future.
My rating for this is a C+
