A Pleasure Trip To Remember. . .

Shying away from commitment of any kind, Jenna Fallon's rules in life are to have none. So when her car breaks down en route from California to Vancouver--and she's forced to hitch a ride with a sexy stranger--she's thrilled to discover they share the same no-holds-barred views. . .

As a globe-trotting marine biologist, Mark Chambers is used to changing locations--and women. Yet as he and Jenna make their way up the Pacific coast, camping, skinny dipping, and having scorching hot sex, Mark's not so sure he wants to say goodbye. But is Jenna brave enough to meet the challenge of a man who may be perfect for her?

The most exciting aspect of being open minded with your choice of a new book is the rewards that come when you find that just about perfect book. That is what happened to me with this particular choice. I admit that I have never read a Susan Fox book nor have I ever heard of her, so going blindly into this story was about the best experience I have had in reading in a very long time.

Jenna Fallon is a free spirit…letting life take her wherever the universe feels she needs to go. But her life is changed because she opened her heart and gave her all to a man who took both and destroyed them. Mark Chamber is a PHD, an environmentalist, a scientist, and a very set in his ways kind of man. Life revolves around work, work and work. The women in his life are colleagues, safe, distracted woman who could never tie him down.

Circumstances arrive that put these two ends of the spectrum together for a long journey of discovery, not only of the landscape but of each other and but more importantly of themselves. Jenna needs a ride to Vancouver but car trouble puts her in a diner at the same time Dr. Mark Chambers is taking lunch break from his long distance ride from California to Vancouver. From their first meeting the energy and sizzle is rampant so their next two days in a renovated camper should be very interesting. Jenna opens Mark's eyes to all the amazingly small moments of life that he has not noticed and Mark brings to Jenna a realization that maybe her heart isn’t closed to love after all.

The entire story is that wonderful journey into the beginning of a new relationship, the excitement of those first hours together, the passion and uncertainty of that first kiss, the thoughts of the futures, the “am I good enough for this person” pressure but most importantly will they except me for what I am or do they want to change me?

The dialogue, the emotion, the passion and the heartache are all real. You feel everything they feel, you experience everything they do and you relate to all that is going on in their minds. By the end of the book, I was wishing there was another 100 pages so the story could go on and on. As I mentioned I had never read a Susan Fox book, and the since this is book 3 in her Wild Ride to Love series, I have since rectified that situation and I am now all caught up.

This is that passionate beginning of love to the happily ever after story that we all love to be a part of. Don’t miss it!

Canterbury, thank you so much for this fabulous review. You've started my week on a high note! I'm so thrilled you enjoyed Jenna and Mark's journey. I had a blast writing about them, and also writing Jenna's sisters' stories in the other Wild Ride to Love books.
