He was someone who belonged in my wildest fantasies instead of a rest stop in the middle of Nebraska.

A sexy, cocky, Australian named Chance was the last person I expected to run into on my cross-country drive.

When my car broke down, we made a deal. Next thing I knew, we were traveling together, spending sexually-tense nights in hotels and taking unplanned detours.

My ordinary road trip turned into the adventure of a lifetime. It was all fun and games until things got intense.

I wanted him, but Chance wouldn’t make a move. I thought he wanted me too, but something was holding him back.

I wasn’t supposed to fall for the cocky bastard, especially when I knew we’d be going our separate ways.

All good things must come to an end, right?

Except our ending was one I didn’t see coming.

Review - 5 Stars
          Take a Chance (haha!) on this book! You won’t be disappointed! Penelope Ward and Vi Keeland are two authors I automatically 1-click. Putting these two together, created magic! I truly loved this book!
          One of the biggest compliments an author duo can get, is that their book seems to only have one voice. Penelope and Vi did an excellent job of created a seamless mix from their unique writing talents. The book is in split POV, however, not in the more traditional back and forth. Instead, the first half is from Aubrey’s POV and the second from Chance’s. They absolutely picked the perfect person to be the narrator in those specific sections, the reverse would not have been as captivating.
          I fell in love with both Aubrey and Chance. It’s hard NOT to adore Chance from the very beginning, but Aubrey has quite the stick up her ass in the very beginning. It only takes a chapter to start to enjoy her though, then more and more, I liked her as someone I would absolutely be friends with.
          There are some who would probably be negative about Aubrey’s actions when Chance returns to her life, but personally, I thought she was justified. I also appreciated her integrity, in refusing to cheat.
          Chance’s decision at the end of their road trip, definitely ticked me off. That didn’t make me dislike him, but I wasn’t happy with him. Then he makes up his mind to get Aubrey back and holy cow, be still my beating heart. That man is the supreme mixture of sweet, sexy, and all man.
          I was glued to the pages, desperate to see how it would all play out. There were some surprises that I didn’t see coming, keeping me on my toes! The characters are fabulously developed, the story well plotted, and the writing clean and smooth.
          The epilogue had me sighing and wishing there was a second book to keep reading about these two. I highly, highly recommend this book and I very much hope to see more from these two as a team in the future!

A knock at the door made me jump.
With a huff, I got out of bed and stood on my tiptoes to look out the peephole.  Why were those things always so high on the door anyway?  I was surprised to find no one standing on the other side.  Maybe I’d imagined it.
Another knock.
I flicked on the lights. The sound wasn’t coming from the entrance door.  It was coming from an interior door I hadn’t even noticed before.
Chance’s door.
I unfastened the top lock and cracked it open just enough so I could see what he wanted.  And there he stood.
Wearing only dark gray boxer briefs that hugged him like a second skin.
It took a minute to understand what he was doing there, even though he was holding up a toothbrush in question.
“I thought we had established I wasn’t a serial killer already.”
I opened the door wider.
He smiled.
Oh lord.  Stop that.  Right now.
“I must have left my toothpaste in my saddlebag in the car.”
I swallowed hard.  “Uh huh.”
He cocked his head to the side, and his brows dipped in.  “Can I borrow yours?”
“Oh.  Yeah, sure.”
He walked past me and let himself into my bathroom.  I waited at the door.
“You got an awful lot of girly crap in here for one night,” he said with a jumbled mouth full of toothpaste from the bathroom.  “Private Collection Tuberose Gardenia.”
He was reading my Estee Lauder perfume bottle.
I heard him rinse and spit.  Then there was a gargling sound.  He used my mouthwash, too.  Sure, help yourself.
He walked out and flicked off the bathroom light.  “Is tuberose a rose?”
I shook my head, still confused by the whole situation going on.
“That’s why,” he murmured.
“Why what?”
“I couldn’t figure out what you smelled like all day.  Not sure I ever smelled a Tuberose before.”  He shrugged and walked back into his room but not before turning back.  “Even those little black lacy underwear smell like tuberose.”
My eyes bulged.  I’d taken off my bra and panties and left them on the bathroom counter.
“Relax.  I’m teasing.  Do I look like an underwear sniffer to you?”
“Night, Aubrey.” He graced me with a dimple and disappeared.
AH-BREE.  Damn him.
I locked the door and checked it twice, unclear if it was for my safety or his.  His voice saying my name was on audio replay inside my head, getting softer and softer like a soothing lullaby with each breath as I drifted off to dreamland.

Until the knock came again.
