I have never read anything from this author prior to signing up for audibles Romance package. But getting a Romance package there are a lot of authors that I would not normally gravitate towards. This is one of those authors. This is a quick 26-minute novella. It is just about a girl who just wants to go home to see her family for spring break that ends up hitchhiking and that ends up having sex with a random stranger. That's basically the story.
The only thing that I kept thinking about was doesn't Dina know that people kill people hitchhiking. Like has she never watch Investigation Discovery, Lifetime, WeTV, or any crime shows. In my mind I kept thinking this was a very very very bad idea of hitchhiking two thousand miles to go see your family. Then the fact that she chooses to have unprotected sex with Ethan,the driver, is just too much for me. Like what if he has a disease or what if she got pregnant. I understand that this is a story and there are no consequences within the story but as a woman and as someone who watches a lot of crime shows all I can see is her mangled disfigured violated body on the side of the road or in the woods somewhere.
For what the story is and it is straight erotica I would give this story a 3 rating. However the consequences and all the bad things that could have happened to her just made me feel as though I don't want to listen to anything so short and to the point again.
I also had the issue about the Exotic. The white guy who never has had sex with a black girl and that is his ultimate fantasy. That is one of my issues that I have with interracial relationships. It doesn't matter if it's in real life or within a book. Guys who only want to be with a black girl because she is a black girl and not for who she is just pisses me off. I know that I'm overanalyzing this story but it just hits on all the major points about being an interracial relationship. All of the negative aspects are brought forth in this 26 minute story. I understand that it is a quick read, however the main reason why Ethan was so interested in Dina because she was black just annoys me to no end.

Things could have gone a lot differently for Dina...hitchhiking like that. Not that she met the guy of her dreams or a happily ever after. It just seemed a little incomplete for a fan of HEA.
