Synopsis

What’s worse than driving a phallic-shaped RV across the country with a coworker you hate? Falling in love with them. 

Copywriter Callie Murphy has a bad attitude, a vicious tongue, and a serious aversion to Shimura Advertising’s resident manwhore, Walker Rhodes. Know where he can stick his good looks and Southern charm? She can think of a few creative places. Avoiding him wouldn’t be a problem, except her boss threatens to fire her if she doesn’t go along with him on their RV client’s cross-country tour. 

Burnt-out art director, Walker, is sick of his job, tired of women, and in a big old creative rut. The upcoming client road trip is just what he needs to shake things up and rediscover his lost passion. But his plans go south when his partner drops out at the last minute, and Callie, the foul-mouthed tiny terror, takes her place. Unless he can find a way to thaw his icy coworker, he’s looking at two months of pure hell. 

Road-Tripped is a stand-alone novel and the first book in the Ad Agency Series. 

*Not for readers under 18. Erotic sex, adult language, and drug use.

Grace Review

I love a good road trip book.
Capturing new parts of the US.
The hijinks between the travelers.
The battle of personalities in a confined space.
The unique characters met along the way.
And this book has it all.

Adding to the wild nature of the book is that the two travelers featured, come from a joke of a business, Shimura Ad Agency, and due to some false impressions, don’t get off on a good start. Yes, Callie “Bluebell” Murphy and Walker Rhodes lack the maturity of a normal adult, but as a Rom Com it is best to just go with it and enjoy the laughs. And a lot of those laughs came care of Walker’s cock.

From the billowing steam, his erection jutted out like a flesh-colored obelisk rising above the clouds. It was magnificent. She wanted to worship it, put a shrine around it . . . take a field trip to it.

A rumbling sound came from somewhere above The Most Beautiful Cock in the World (trademark pending).

My favorite parts of this story were when the couple let go and enjoyed each crazy adventure to the fullest. And there are plenty of LOL moments.
The alligator piss.
The nudist colony – because a road trip book isn’t complete without one.
Pot with the grandma.
The hurricane and Leonard Nimoy.

I also liked how Walker built Callie’s confidence back up, which was previously destroyed by her jackhole boyfriend, Daniel. And once she gets that confidence, she provided a lot of the laughs with her zaniness.

My least favorite part of the story was when the couple refused to communicate, which ended up making things worse. And a lot of this was Walker’s fault. For as sweet as he could be to Callie when alone, he seemed to revert back to a jackass when surrounded by his co-workers, and it was surprising how clueless he was about the damage he was causing.

It became obvious to me that this couple would work long term, they just needed to communicate and sort out their shit. Eventually this happens, but it does take time. Although I thought the epilogue was sweet, one thing I would of loved would have been some closure with Daniel. A big Look-How-Well-Callie-Did-Without-You moment. That would have been the icing on the cake.

This was a fun ride and I’m looking forward to reading more from this series.
