Kyla O'Grady hit the gas and drove her Mustang out of Rock River, Pennsylvania with one goal in mind: find somewhere to start over. Her life had gone sideways back home and Kyla needs something new, something fresh, and she needs to find the music again. But on a stretch of road off the coast of Maine, her car has other ideas. Broken down just inside the town limits of Ashten Falls, Maine, Kyla is stranded.
Cooper Moretto has a problem. In fact, the whole town of Ashten Falls has a problem in the form of a corrupt town official. Cooper had enough on his plate to last a lifetime, but on a stretch of highway heading into the town he spots a '67 Mustang Coupe and does what any decent mechanic would do: stop to help. But getting this car back on the road is the last thing on his mind when he sees its owner, singing as if she weren’t in the middle of nowhere.
Kyla is speeding away from her past, unsure how to move forward. Cooper has been on cruise control, just hoping to get through every day without being arrested or harassed. Can the two slow down long enough to see that maybe the answers to both their problems lie in each other? And can they survive when enemies that are lurking in the shadows try to destroy them both?
ARC Slow Ride begins when Kyla's precious mustang breaks down in the middle of nowhere... Well not really, it breaks down in a very small town that has a whole lot of crazy stuff going on with the local police chief. But when a sexy man comes to help her, Kyla's ready to tell him to hit the road until he says he's the only mechanic in town. Now she has to figure out how to come up with the money to take care of her car, and figure out with to do about the mechanic Cooper.
Cooper sees Kyla and instantly knows there is something about her that gets under his skin. So now he wants her to stay in town as long as possible to try to explore what he knows they have between them. He offers Kyla a job to help pay off the repairs for her car, and she accepts. These two then share a beautiful romance, that gets interrupted by outsiders who do not want them to be together.
This book was very good! I really enjoyed the story line. And the characters were awesome as well. I only have a few complaints and one is there were a few instances when something was explained and it happened a certain way to the character, but then a little bit further in the book that was explained again but completely different this time around. This happened a few times, not often but a few. And then the other thing was it felt like a lot of conversations were repeated, especially in the beginning. And that was just frustrating. It felt like Cooper said the same thing to Kyla quite a few times in the book. But other wise the book was awesome! And I thoroughly enjoyed it.
