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. 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 month’s of pure hell. On the road, they experience one hilarious misadventure after another and soon find themselves on a life-changing journey. But when their paths veer off in different directions, will they hit a dead end? Road-Tripped is a stand-alone novel and the first book in the Ad Agency Series.

Rating/Review: ☕☕☕☕☕ (5 cups!) of hilarious entertainment and a most unlikely romantic couple ever! If you love road trips, snarky heroines, clueless heroes and a killer playlist then Road-Tripped is your book!
Road-Tripped is the trippiest romantic comedy for the year for me. Callie and Walker and their veritable snarky dialogues while on a road trip in an old fashioned RV across the country will have you in stitches. Callie is in one word a bitch, while Walker is definitely playing the token good looking co-worker who appears to be sleeping with anyone in skirts. But alas first impressions are definitely misleading and the road trip to hell for these two suddenly turns into one trip that turns life around for them. And before you think its all sweetness and light and uplifting romance think again, for its still trippy, Callie is still bitchy and Walker is still being clueless while the attraction sizzles. A definite must read!
