Lathan has 17 days to be married or lose the rest of his money. Jack gets a call to tow a rich man's vehicle. He is instantly attracted to her. Lathan finds out Jack's father needs the best care possible, but money is a problem. Hmmmmmm.....maybe they could help each other. She marries him for a year and her father's care is taken care of. Will Jack agree? I loved this story. They weren't supposed to fall in love, but love doesn't always come when you look for it. I would definitely recommend th ...more

Roadside Assistance
By: Casey Hagen

This story was a nice light and heart warming read. The author takes you through how people have misconceptions based on appearance and finance. She also lets you feel the emotion of when you feel like you are living in the shadow of someone else. You get family, new friendships, love, forgiveness, sass and love all in one great story.

I loved Jack. She was awesome. What an amazing woman. The story flowed and was fast paced. The author weaves a great story with unlikely lovers who come from completely different worlds, only to learn in time that they are exactly what was missing from each others lives. Her characters are always well developed and easy to relate to.

A fun, feisty heroine and a handsome hero, and all's set for a sweet romance. When Lathan is turned down by his prospective finance, he didn't expect that the answer to his problems lay in a tow truck operator call Jack! Despite her diminutive size Jack is capable and has a good head on her shoulders, even though she is carrying the pain of a missing mother and a father in frail care. When Lathan puts his proposition to Jack, she accepts it, knowing that it is for a limited time only. What surpr ...more

I thought Roadside assistance was a cute novella. Lathan and Jack were complete opposites but the author made there differences work. The other characters in the book were equally charming. I loved her brother and wanted relearn more about him.
I know it's a novella but I think certain aspects of the book coup shave been expanded..

Lathan Kincaid needs a wife in 17 days in order to inherit the rest of his trust fund, some of which he promised for a school in Kenya, the Liam T. Kincaid School, in honor of his late brother. The girl he was hoping to be engaged to, Kim, just broke it off with him so Lathan decides to take his 2016 Porsche 918 Spyder for a ride through the Sierra Nevada Mountains at night. While driving, Lathan ends up running over debris on the road and has to call a tow service. Imagine his surprise when thi ...more

Everything in life happens for a reason. At the time we may not understand it, but gradually as time goes on the reasons come into sharper focus. Casey Hagen took that piece of wisdom and ran with it. A chance meeting, car trouble and a roadside tow leads to some life changing revelations for a totally mismatched pair. Who knew that from something so simple could come a story so profound. Jack is a beer drinking, straight shooting, tow truck driving pistol. She knows her cars, loves her family a ...more

What a lovely book. Really nice to see a couple of different backgrounds in the series.

I like that the book jumped right in. The story was cute and the characters were well written. I like that they were unusual literary heroes. Jack is an atypical heroine and the rich family was snobby but accepting. I had some issues with the writing and storyline in spots, but I wonder if that was just because it was a novella and not a full length novel. A few times it was hard to distinguish who was talking and I had to reread a couple pages. There were a couple of choppy parts that I had to ...more

I enjoyed this story. It's your basic story about making a mutually beneficial deal with a year long marriage. Lathan needs his trust fund to finish building a school in an impoverished area and Jack needs to find a way to pay for her father's care in a nursing home. Win-win, right. The chemistry between these two is hot right from the get-go. Love Jack's character. She can hang with the guys, yet still finds a way to win over the women in Lathan's family. Don't you want to find out what happens ...more

I cannot blame Jack, I would definitely give this hottie some road side assistance. This is a fun, quirky story with lots of colorful characters. I enjoyed reading it and hope for more like it.

I enjoyed this story despite feeling that the story line was predictable. I knew what was going to happen before I read it and still found it a very enjoyable quick read. The interaction between Lathan and "Jack" (yes that is a girl) was witty, steamy and totally believable.

I was given an ARC in exchange for an honest review.

This is my second book by Casey Hagen and she had me completely charmed with this sexy yet heartwarming story. I absolutely loved the "Opposite's Attract" plot of this story. It was witty, charming and the instant sexual attraction between Lathan and Jack just added that much more to their whirlwind romance!

Great characters who you empathize, relate and cheer on. Stellar writing kept you hooked into the fast-paced story. The dual POV of Lathan and Jack detailed just how far their attraction goes

They come from different worlds but are so very much alike. On the surface, Jack and Lathan shouldn't have anything in common but their hearts were made for each other. Lathan is the accidental CEO of a company his brother should be running, who's doing everything in his power to honor that brother's memory. His blue-collar ethic hides his vulnerable poet's soul. Jack's a straight-talking tow truck driver that's more at home being one of the guys. She doesn't believe in love and wouldn't trust i ...more

This is such a great story. Lathan and Jack are so good. They remind us that not only do opposites attract they work too. Lathan, the billionaire CEO and Jack, the tow truck business owner plan to marry to satisfy their personal obligations. He needs to marry to fulfill his trust fund obligation. She's willing because Lathan promises the financial support of her father's health care facility.

This was a nice, sweet story with no real surprises...once you got over the shock of the heroine being a tow truck driver with the name Jack!

Roadside Assistance is a quick read, with some really interesting characters. I wish the author would have shared a bit more about the school in Kenya, but that was okay. There are some twists and turns, but the outcomes were pretty apparent. (I voluntarily reviewed an advance reader copy of this book.)

Lathan needed a wife in a hurry, and he decided Jack was going to be the one. Marry me for a year, he says. He didn't bet on falling for her. Good story of fake marriage to true love. Lathan's family was amusing and kept the drama lively and engaging. I liked all the characters very much, and thought the plot was very well done. And the moments of sweetness paired up with the steamy moments were a good blend. I voluntarily reviewed an advance reader copy of this book. ...more
