Publisher's Summary

A short story from the NYT best-selling author of the Shacking Up series about a road trip that started with a broken-down car and ended with a questionable motel, an indoor campout, and a set of Kama Sutra sheets.

Nevah

I thought I was helping a damsel in distress. 

Turns out my damsel was actually a hot guy with rock solid forearms, blue eyes reminiscent of an oasis in a desert, and some seriously bad luck. 

Lawson

My day started with a bang. 

The kind that left me stranded at the side of the road in the middle of the desert.

At least until a knight in shining armor shows up in a rusted-out convertible and saves the day. Said knight also happens to be a car savvy woman with legs for days, and a penchant for adventure.

Super cute!

This super quickie has all the elements of a longer book, but compacted it in a sweet and sexy way! No steps are missed in this HFN that could be the beginning of more? It was perfect and made me happy

Too short. I want more.

Story and narration was great.
Rose and Jacob were fantastic. Two of my favorites.
I really hope this is just a teaser and their story is told.
Story short and so is my review is also short.

Sweet & Quick Novella

This novella absolutely left me wanting to hear more of Nevah & Lawson’s story!! A sweet, charming, and funny romp.

Such high hopes

The narration was amazing and as usual it didn’t take long for Helena to have me super invested. But it doesn’t state this is a spin off or attached to another of her series till you are in it and they are name dropping a bunch of people from her one series I haven’t actually read yet. It’s a pain and a shame but I couldn’t enjoy what I know was supposed to be all these great name drops. It made me sad. But I do still wanna go back and read that series now.

Wish it had been longer

I loved these siblings from the Shacking Up series & would love for Nevah & Lawson to have their own full book.

Formulaic. boring.

Insanely hot rich dude gets stranded by classic car bought on impulse ( because rich)
Insanely hot rich girl with mechanical skills stops to help.
Said mechanical skills are not even used, she calls a tow for him, and the car is not mentioned again, having served it's purpose in the plot.
She offers him a ride, and they ended up boning in a disgusting motel room.
There, I've saved you a couple of hours .

They kinda tried to flip the usual gender roles formula for the genre, but a simple flip without anything else is not much to add interest.

Thank you

Loved this book and had been waiting on a story with Lawson in it, great way to tie in Nev also.

Give me more!

This was a cute story and the narration by Rose Dioro and Jacob Morgan was terrific. If you're looking for a fun little quickie, look no further! I'd love to see more of Nevah and Lawson, but I think this was great as-is.

Short but cute story

I really liked this. It’s definitely a short story but it didn’t disappoint. These are 2 of my favorite narrators which was a huge bonus.

Fun but too short!

I was so excited to see that Nev got her own story. Unfortunately, it was waaay too short - like, just stopped in the middle, short.
Really wish HH would finish this one, it has real potential.
