This is what it is, and I'm sorry but books like this can't really be more than 2's the great nature of a small piece of rubbish to read when you don't want to pay attention to anything great, but it still does a good job of making you feel better. This 'novel' is about a woman with a shite partner who picks up a handsome hitchhiker and rogers him senseless in a motel one night. I don't think that's really spoiling it, because if, after the first two pages, you didn't think that was g ...more

Okay so this was a short book...with a plot that I couldn't really buy. One issue I had was with the end. (view spoiler)
The reason I killed four stars is because of the damn female protagonist. I won't spoil it but she annoys me so

More 2.5 than 3.

First, I am not a reader of erotica normally but I do have moments where I want something different.
I have read romantic novels with definitely more graphic sex scenes which made me blush than this short story. It is trying to be a nice little hot piece, but I do not think it quite succeeded. There is not enough to titillate one's senses and not enough to tease. the sex scenes are funny with a lot of ' oh baby'. To be honest, this one made me smile rather than making me hot, beca
I'm not generally a big fan of super short stories, but I really enjoyed this one! It was a sweet story that I wished was quite a bit longer!

Quick short read with likeable characters and nice build up of sexual tension. Lost two stars for a few reasons, firstly the editing which needs tightening up, spelling errors and punctuation in totally the wrong places. Also the author could have put in a little more effort and made this into a short story, rather than the extra short story that it was. The idea behind the plot was good, but the last few scenes in particular felt rushed and I couldn't fathom why Rose was still with her boyfrien ...more

A cute romantic short story about a woman who picks up a hitchhiker and has the night of her life. I am adding this author to my list of 'authors to look for'!

The heroine in this story drives me crazy with her lack of strength. Her lazy, neglectful, self-centered boyfriend expects her to pay for EVERYTHING and she chooses to hang onto the loser because it would upset both of their parents if she tosses him. During their chance encounter, the hero shows her she can be strong, she's beautiful and worthwhile. They come to a point where they must part ways, he to be with a daughter in another state and she to think things over about the boyfriend. What do ...more

I got this short from Amazon as a free e-book.

For a free erotic short story this isn’t bad at all. It is written well, I quite liked the characters and there was some development and not just sex. It would have actually made a great full length novel.

My main problem with it is something that is beginning to bug me a lot about these types of book. I do not understand why female authors feel the need to constantly write about female characters that are unable to stand up to a bullying partner. ‘My

If you're looking for a short story that will catch you from the first sentence, this story is for you. A story that takes us on a journey that you want to see happen. A hot and sexy story of passion, love, lust and much more. This is a must read for anyone that enjoys a "sexy" read.

Brilliant short read didn't want the book to end!!
Would be a brilliant full novel.

Would love to have read more about Heath and Roses past and their futures, I felt this certain short could of had a bit more details about the main characters

This was an Amazon freebie.

It actually could have been really good. The plot is original and the characters had great chemistry that could have made this book a lot longer than 25 pages. If you added a little better writing and some character to it.

Like I said, the plot was a great idea. The delivery not so much. The only thing that worked was the sex. The rest was really rushed and it was like the author started out with a great idea and slowly lost her momentum once they reached the hotel.

A frustrated young woman who couldn't stand her arrogant boyfriend picked up a stranger during her drive. This passenger happened to be a sexy guy and he was just divorced. Unable to resist the sexual temptation, they stayed in a motel and had incredible sex all night long. Some time later, this stranger's phone call changed the woman's life, rescuing her from an upcoming miserable marriage.

The concept wasn't bad, but the execution didn't turn out well. It seemed that the author wanted the reade

For a free short story I was surprised at how easily likeable the characters were. So much so that I was disappointed when it finished. Kevay could easily expand this into a full book and I'd buy it.

The story was great for being so short. But you dont "make love" after knowing a guy for 5 hours. And when sex ends and you had known the guy for one day, you dont say I love you.
Rosa is cliche and so is Heath. And the end si sooooo Disney.

Good book

What a good book made me cry at the end would love to read more from this author. Would recommend to anyone

I liked this story, I didn't even care that there was got sex (ish) in it. Now for me to say that means that there was great character development and a good plot. The original thought of picking up a hitchhiker was challenging for my over-aware sense of safety, but the interactions between the male and female leads made me forget that he was a hitchhiker. It actually made me believe that sleep mates actually exist (yea, call me a pessimist or a realist). The story was very cute and hot

This short story was not that bad though it contained a lot of unrealistic element for me.

I mean come on, if 2 people meet and they feel that deep lust toward each other they won't start out with a dildo, they just rip each other's clothes apart and booom...

Also talking about batteries during petting made me laugh out loud...

This book was free, and took me 1 hour to read, so I guess I got what I paid for :)

Shelves: 2012, kindle, erotica
I was dared into reading some erotica, and thought I'd dip my toe in to the wold of free Kindle reads.

This didn't do much for me to be honest, the sex seemed perfunctory and almost an aside to the, admittedly well, characterised story.

But it's only my first attempt, I'm sure there must be "hotter" stuff out there...

I did enjoy this short story but I have a hard time with main characters that just aren't that intelligent sometimes. I'm sure there may have been a reason the main character went back to a terrible boyfriend but the author didn't describe it well enough and that would be needed to enhance my enjoyment in this story.

Another Amazon freebie, quite hot but I didn't find it very believable & I really didn't like the side story with her abusive boyfriend. Why would she have stayed with him? I also felt the relationship between Rose & Heath moved far too quickly.

Not bad if you're happy to suspend belief while you're reading

Five Stars for a short read.
This was a pretty damn good short story.
There is so much that could have been in a novel but I felt like I got everything I needed from this short hot ride.
So many emotions but if I ever pick up a hitchhiker in my next life I hope it is a ride like this!
Aug 17, 2013 Dianne rated it really liked it
This was such a sweet story...very unrealistic but still very sweet. It was so much more than porn and filled with such a great back story. Like most short stories I've read, I really wish that this was longer. Nonetheless, it is a great, short, romantic story that I highly recommend.
Quick short story! Amazing what can happen when you least expect it? Picking up a hitchhiker may not be on everyone's top list, but in this case she did. After a few hundred miles and a night to remember this driver and passenger sealed the fate of a lifetime!
