Road Trip Rules: No bad music. No detours. No falling in love.
Hazel Elliot never looks back. If a door closes, she burns the whole house down. But when she’s summoned home for her father’s wedding, she’s forced to return to Lockett Prairie, Texas, for the first time since she fled for college.
Ash Campbell has been in love with Hazel since she dated his best friend in high school. Now, Ash and Hazel’s relationship is limited to playful feuding over the best chair in their favorite coffee shop, and his attraction to the prickly girl from home has only grown stronger.
When Ash’s car breaks down just as family obligations pull him home, only one person can get him there on time. But Hazel has a condition: Everything between them must stay the same. And if it doesn’t? She gets the coffee shop. So the frenemies endure bad music, inclement weather, and B&Bs with only one bed—and that’s just the drive across Texas. When they finally arrive, Hazel must face that, in a small town, there’s nowhere to run . . . and maybe, for the first time, there's a reason to stay.
