Goodreads TBR:

Life might be a highway, but the last thing this grumpy silver fox expected was a road trip across the country with a ray of sunshine.


Tucker Ashford has forgotten who he was. The former rock star – Tucker Ashe – turned social media sensation knows exactly where life took a U-turn. Problem is, he’s convinced it’s too late to circle back. When he needs a ride from Chicago to California for his daughter’s wedding, an eight-state journey with a quirky woman is more than he bargained for, but quite possibly the chance he needs to rewind time.

Mae Fox is ready to discover who she is. After two decades of marriage (gone wrong), motherhood (still going), and a not-so-small business (going quite well), she’s looking for the adventure of a lifetime – alone. However, her well-planned escape of come-what-may down the Mother Road is slightly detoured when she’s asked to haul a grumpy silver fox across the country.

The highway is a melody of cheesy sight-seeing stops, nostalgic locations, and a playlist that rocks as two lonely hearts take a road trip down the path of second chances and the possibility of love over forty.

+ + +

Hint: Can be read as a standalone, but if you’ve read After Care, Midlife Crisis, and Second Chance, this is the elusive original band member who left them behind.

Trope: later in life romance; second chance romance; road trip romance; travel; dating after loss; dating after divorce

What to expect:

*Grumpy silver fox

*Ray of sunshine

*Cross country shenanigans

*Second chance

*Love over 40

My Review...

The queen of over 40 romance does it again! I was blown away by this new story and start of a new series!

This is the story of Tucker and Mae. This is a story of finding yourself even after the years have gone by. This is a story of reinventing yourself no matter what your age is! This is a story of finding your passion again, by way of self-discovery and love.

Mae is determined to find herself on the historic Route 66, she has hushed the naysayers and is going for herself. Even with the crappy hand life has given her up until now, she still has the courage to stay upbeat and find her glow again.

Tucker gave up his younger dreams to stand by his family and fulfill his legacy. He has had the weight of the world on his shoulders for so long, he doesn’t even realize how bitter he has become until a ray of sunshine shines on him and takes him on a road trip to find his passion and find the soul mate he didn’t know he was craving.

I absolutely fell in love with this couple, and while I haven’t traveled the whole of Route 66, I have experienced many of the stops along Tucker and Mae’s way. I was totally invested in them both and cheered hard for them to get their happy back.

I loved seeing past characters make their appearances known and I love how “small” Tucker and Mae’s world really was.

What a absolutely amazing story! I cannot wait to read more from this family!
