Publisher's Summary

For Francesca Day, it's not the end of her world, but close to it. She's London-bred, wealthy, and sophisticated, but fate leaves her flat broke and stranded on a back road in Texas. Now she's got to deal with reality without her rich girl props. How can she do it? In Dallas Beaudine, gritty and handsome, lies the answer. He stops his car to help Francesca, whose life needs a tune-up, as well as her car. Stopping could lead to the biggest mistake, or best time, ever.

Fantastic

Wow is all I can say. Not only was the story great but the narrator is the best I have ever experienced. Phillips is a great writer the story hooks you and takes in from the beginning. The narrator does such a great job with voices unlike any I have purchased on Audible. Well worth the price. I loved it so much that I purchased the follow up Lady Be Good too.

No redeemable qualities.

Spoiled, vain, narcissistic, rich girl falls in love with an emotionally detached, sexist, hound dog that has no qualms about slapping her around.
The book focuses on everyone's relationships EXCEPT the main characters. I would be surprised if 20% of the whole book was dedicated to the main subjects and it spent a great deal of that time showing only their bad qualities.
I have read all of SEP other books and can honestly say this one has no redeemable qualities unlike her other books.
