ANGEL
I know what you're whispering in the car as you pass me by.
Hitchhiker.
When you see me walking along the side of the road with my thumb out, you'll probably keep driving without giving me a second glance. You probably think I'm foolish. Naïve.
You might assume I've made some bad decisions.
You might think I'm too young to be on my own.
You might be right.

CAUTION UNPOPULAR OPINION AHEAD


Okay, now don't all get mad at me all at once here. But this book for me was very very vanilla.
It's safe as safe as it can be without condoms it was still safe! From cheating from ow/OM from sex (she was on the injection cause hey that's how runaway work) and the best was they were both virgins.
Yes, I should be doing a flucking happy dance here but sadly I can't because it was just a

So, I kept imagining that the hero looked like this: green/ hazel eyes with long eyelashes...

Skipped pretty much all the "normal" parts and got to the "good stuff." Writing was easy. Sex was good. Likeable characters for the most part. Nothing too deep or involved.

So this was me pretty much during this book.



Still cant believe how much i enjoyed it, and that it was authors first book.

This is story of Angel and Travis. Travis is trucker (lol, i know right? didnt read that one before) and they met when he sees Angel hitchhiking which is how it all begins.

What i loved about this book?

1. Travis...



He is PERFECT! I need my own! He is kind, sweet, possessive, caring, sexy and did i mention that Travis is my favourite name?! Yep, im in love big t

is it wrong that it bothers me that hero let his date from hell sleep at his place on his bed because she couldn't go home drunk and because he is such a sweet guy?lol hmmm I'm too damn picky.


3.75 stars. So after my complaint up there^^lol I ended up enjoying this. The hero Travis was the sweetest guy:) He was just a really good guy! Sweet, cute and a bit steamy read! Heroine I thought was cute. She made me laugh . She was a bit too naïve but I think it was understandable. That Beverly was hilar

Trucker was a sweet book with not much drama.

As much as I really liked Travis and Angel, I am not a huge fan of insta love.

With that being said, Travis makes the perfect boyfriend. He is sweet, sexy, protective and drives a big truck. Angel was sweet also but a bit naive maybe?!? She was very young though so... that's understandable.

Cute book if you want something fluffy and sweet to read.

I was looking for low angst and sweetness and this delivered! Travis and Angel were a great couple. Both were virgins. Slight OW drama from a girl that Travis had gone on a date with. She wanted to date him more, he wanted nothing to do with her. (view spoiler)

BOTM Low Angst Love Re-read and still a sweet read. One I think is a perfect palate cleanser to more intense reads or when you just want a nice story with little crazy angst or drama.

This was a sweet surprise. I am not a New Adult fan but this is going to be one of the few I really enjoyed.

This is the story of Angel who is a 17 year old runaway. She lost her Aunt and was now on her own. She begins hitchhiking to try to find her mother that abandoned her in California. While walking the hero name

This debut novel was fantastic, and took Jamie Schlosser directly to my 'auto-read-author' list! That's how good it was!
Yes, NA us not my fav genre, but this one was developed beautifully! I loved the couple, but Travis stole the show and my heart with it! Adored his confidence in himself and what he wanted, specially given he was a virgin, and most of all how he loved and never gave put on Angel!
Can't wait to read more from this author!!! <3

I went into this book with a serious book hangover. As you may know, it’s often difficult to find something that satisfies when in this condition. Trucker may have not felt like the best fit in the beginning but I never wanted to set it aside. Before I knew it I was totally invested in this couple, where they were going and how it would all end.

Angel has run away from her foster home and is headed for California to connect with her mother who she hasn’t seen in years. Her only form of affordable

This new-to-me author gave me a real feel good book. I loved it. If I didn’t already know that good guys exist (though they do seem to be rare, right?), this book would be enough to convince me. Travis was just so freaking sweet. He was honest, endearing, wasn’t afraid of being vulnerable, oh and bonus… he was a virgin. I think it worked well with the cute as all heck heroine, Angel, who was also a virgin. Her life wasn’t so easy and hitch hiking wasn’t the smartest decision she ever made, but i ...more

I am a fan actually with this series. I love Outcast and Dancer. Sadly, I am not a fan with Trucker. I can not really make connection with both Travis and Angel. They both cliche.

Hence the story feels flat for me. The closure between Angel and her mom is executed badly.

Just because I love this series, I tolerate it with 3 stars.

Definitely one of my favorites this year!

If you love sweet, caring, yet sexy heroes, bubbly heroines, and almost non-existent angst, then this book is perfect for you.

This was a low angst super sweet love story. Travis is a trucker on the road when he spots Angel at a truck stop. Angel is a runaway about to turn 18 heading to see her mom that disappeared from her life years ago. Angel decides that hitchhiking is a good way to get to California and is lucky that Travis was the one to pick her up.

Travis is so kind, possessive, and nurturing to Angel. All he wants is to see her happy even if in the long run he may end up unhappy. He took her in when she needed

Super duper sweet - YA to NA book. 3.5 stars

When I read a KU book, most of the time, I expect them to be pretty short and underdeveloped. This book was not that at all.

The heroine is 17 when they meet. They do not have sex until she is 18, which was only a couple of weeks away. I was not skeeved out at all. They were both virgins so it was not like either was taking advantage of the other. They also took time to get to know each other.

This book was sugary sweet. I really liked Travis and was on

Travis Hawkins, 21, is a truck driver. But park you trucker stereotypes and misconceptions at the door. He isn’t crude, rude, or a perv. He’s sweet, sexy, and a total book boyfriend.

“‘Sexy truckers like Pinterest, too.’”

Angel Thomas, 17/18, is basically an orphan, a runaway, and a hitchhiker. Oh, and definitely a bit naïve. But before she runs into any real trouble, fate intervenes causing these two to meet on a stretch of highway and everything that they’ve been missing in life become

A very good first time effort by author Jamie Schlosser. It's a simple, straightforward and moving story of finding your soul mate. Quite engaging, I could not put it down. There were a number of the usual tropes but everything flowed nicely and it all clicked.

Angel had some hard knocks growing up. In the system at graduation she decided to hitch to California to find her mother, who is in jail, and hopefully reconnect. It's a sad and all too real story.

This was a really sweet (like so sweet you're going to possibly get cavities) YA/NA romance. The hero, Travis, is truly book boyfriend hall of fame material! He was so considerate, kind, loyal, supportive, protective, and just like the series name - an all around good guy. Throw in the fact that he's a 21 year old virgin and I was SOLD! It's so rare to see that in romance books (a virgin hero) and I really wish more authors would con

This is exactly what it said it is, a story about a good guy who's a trucker lol. It was cute, these types of books are not usually my cuppa but kudos to the author for a well written tale.

Both virgins
OW drama from a woman the H went out with once and who he let sleep in his bed because she was drunk. He didn't kiss or touch her and wasn't interested in another date

I didn't really know how to rate this book. I was between 3 and 4 stars.

Angel didn't have anybody in her life, so at the age of 17 she decides to look for her mom, who was in prison, when she looses the only person who took care of her.
Travis is a trucker, not your "typical" trucker, who finds a girl hitchhiking, he stops and takes care of her.

This book had its' pros and cons. It wasn't actually perfect.
