Katherine Gates has been in love with Cash Greer since the moment he saved her life from a runaway goat. According to Cash, she’s the little sister he never had, the greatest roommate in the world and his favorite coworker. They’re friends—best friends.
In the dark days of her youth, it was her friendships that kept her alive and made life in a junkyard worth living. So she’s learned to shove her feelings for Cash down deep, even if that means ignoring eyes that shine brighter than the Montana summer sun and the smile that illuminates the snowiest winter day.
Except with every passing year, the denial takes its toll on her wounded heart until one day Katherine decides to take an impulsive road trip to the Oregon coast. Alone. That is, until Cash cons his way into the passenger seat.
The farther they travel, the harder it is to pretend. And when she confesses her feelings, she learns that Cash has some secrets of his own. Secrets that will either bond them together.
Or rip them apart.

I am loving this series. The idea of a road trip cross country with a hand-off from old friend to old friend is pure genius.
This one started out slow for me. I kept going though. I had a feeling it would pick up, and it sure did. Once things started to get good, the story flew by.
Kat got on my nerves a little. And if I'm honest, so did Cash. But I was determined to see their story through. Their lack of communication and self-doubt was a bit annoying, however, that was the focal point of why they remained friends for so many years. I enjoyed seeing the light bulb go off in both of their heads that life the way it was between them needed to move forward.
I enjoyed this leg of the road trip. I am looking forward to the next leg. And I'm curious how all of the characters will end up by the very end.
