Never in a million years would I have pictured myself as an axe-wielding, dragon lady, chopping up multi-colored flannel shirts into my very own plaid mulch. But here I am, chopping away my frustrations.

It all started when my brother, Paul, convinced me to go on one last family road trip across the Mother Road with him and my dad.. Just like old times, right? Wrong. What Paul fails to mention is his best man, Porter, will be joining us, who just so happens to be my childhood crush and the man who broke my heart four years ago.

What is supposed to be a fun, family bonding experience across Route 66 turns into a war of pranks, awkward moments and bathrooms full of dirty flannel shirts and day old beard clippings. Paul’s know-it-all attitude and Porter’s devilish charm brings me to the brink of my sanity on my seven day trek across the United States with three bearded men in a small 1980’s RV.

First off, I’m just going to come out and say it… I loved this book! It had a great story line, characters that I clicked with and it was a hilarious read! Some of the situations that Marley got herself into or created were laugh-out-loud funny! I highlighted so many lines in this book; there were great one liners, funny situations and plenty of swoon moments.

Secondly, I loved the reason why Marley, Paul and their father Bernie decided to go on the trip; it was the trip that their mother planned out before she died, and Paul decided it was time to do it before he got married. It was great to see them together again despite the way Marley and Paul bicker. But when they pick up an unexpected guest, Porter – Paul’s best friend, Marley’s trip becomes interesting. Not only was he her childhood crush, but the guy who broke her heart before she went to college.

Thirdly, I loved the easy relationship Marley had with her father Bernie and brother Paul. They know each other so well and push each other’s buttons, but you can see they love each other deeply. Then there is Porter, he has been there since they were children and still lives and works on Bernie’s goat farm. The guys are all close, but I could see that both Marley and Porter still have feelings for one another, but they are both hesitant to act on those feelings.

And finally, I loved the storyline. I enjoyed experiencing the trip with them, seeing Marley work on her blog, finding out what Porter has been doing in his spare time. Paul is such a girlie guy and would crack me up with his feminine ways!! But throughout everything, they are a family, despite the distance between them.

To wrap it up, I want to encourage you to read this story! Meghan Quinn did a remarkable job at piecing this story together and she hooked me in from the Prologue. The characters aren’t perfect, they make mistakes but you can see the close connection that they have that they support each other through everything. They were entertaining to read about and Meghan has a way of making you fall in love with each and every one of them!

This was a sweet moment between Marley and Porter when he got a 

My eyes meet his and sincerity runs through him. The ache in my chest is heavy and the urge to wrap myself around him is overwhelming, but I don’t show it, it wouldn’t be appropriate. Rather, I hold the key chain to my heart and say, “Thank you, Porter. This means a lot to me.”
He shrugs and gets up from the dining table. “Hey, anything for my Marbles.”
If ovaries could burst, mine just did. Right there on the spot. The combination of his rugged smile, that small dimple that peeks just past his beard, those almost black eyes smiling back at me, and his nickname for me all do me in. I want to lick the ground he walks on, and I would have no shame in doing so.

Born in New York and raised in Southern California, Meghan has grown into a sassy, peanut butter eating, blonde haired swearing, animal hoarding lady. She is known to bust out and dance if “It’s Raining Men” starts beating through the air and heaven forbid you get a margarita in her, protect your legs because they may be humped.

Once she started commuting for an hour and twenty minutes every day to work for three years, she began to have conversations play in her head, real life, deep male voices and dainty lady coos kind of conversations. Perturbed and confused, she decided to either see a therapist about the hot and steamy voices running through her head or start writing them down. She decided to go with the cheaper option and started writing… enter her first novel, Caught Looking.

Now you can find the spicy, most definitely on the border of lunacy, kind of crazy lady residing in Colorado with the love of her life and her five, furry four legged children, hiking a trail or hiding behind shelves at grocery stores, wondering what kind of lube the nervous stranger will bring home to his wife. Oh and she loves a good boob squeeze!
