Asphalt Cowboy – a man (country boy) who works on the road. he is always gone, traveling to different states due to his line of work.
an asphalt cowboy could be considered a truck driver, iron worker, etc.
I was provided an ARC of Asphalt Cowboy’s Girl for an honest review.
In this steamy contemporary romance by Marie Savage, we meet Luke McIntyre and Aimee Jo Elliott. Luke a loner, travelling the highways with his rig, living life by his terms, finding temporary lovers along the way. Aimee Jo, a young, trusting, naïve woman, fleeing her life in Georgia, hopeful of a new start in California. Unfortunate circumstances have the two crossing path at a truck stop in Mobile Alabama. What should have been an easy 4 days together turned out to be anything but.
This was my first read by Marie Savage. I really enjoyed the overall plot line of the novel. The book was a very easy read and easily devoured in one sitting. The story line flowed seamlessly throughout the entire novel. I also really liked that Miss Savage chose to write the novel from a dual point of view. One of my favourite things about any romance novel is reading it through the males eyes.
While I generally like my lead females to be strong and fierce, I found that Marie Savage wrote Aimee Jo’s character to perfection. Her skilled words brought Aimee Jo to life, as she saw her, on each and every page.
The steaminess really builds in Asphalt Cowboy’s Girl until it was thick with sexual tension. Add in a unexpected threat from a dangerous ex and you having the makings a of a well rounded book.
Overall I rate Asphalt Cowboy’s Girl 4 Stars. I’m looking forward to reading what Marie Savage will produce in the future as she grows as an author.
And don’t forget to add it to your Goodreads TBR list.
