I’m Haley Whitfield, and I recently had the ingenious idea to enlist my mother, Allison, as my kick*ss sidekick and set out on a road trip.

This road trip wasn’t to be just any road trip, but a very special one indeed. An adventure with an acutely specific purpose-- to find our other halves. The peanut butter to our jelly. The i to our Phone. The stripper to our pole.

If our romantic desires were a personal ad, they would read something like this.

** Two sassy women (Ages twenty-seven and forty-nine respectively--Ouch. Okay, ages twenty-seven and thirty--with nineteen years experience-- respectively) seeking Alpha Males to love us with zeal and kiss us with skill. Gorgeous face and sexy, tattooed, hard body a must. If you aren’t a dangerous bad*ss with the x-rated skills and virility to match, don’t bother. Must be willing to protect us from danger, value our quirkiness, and keep your mouth shut when said quirkiness is what leads to said danger. Momma’s boys named Dan Smith need not apply.**

I know. It’s a bit wordy. In fact, it would probably cost a fortune. Luckily, we’re not ready for the personal ad. We’re not that desperate...yet.

This is my story.

Warning: Some explicit language and sexual content.

My Review

One star or five? Okay, three.

This is one of those books I love and hate. It’s a fine line, isn’t it? The heroine and her mother are both TSTL, and the title of this book might be Ode to Kristen Ashley. I LOVE the ending. Good thing I didn’t give up halfway like I was tempted. If you are a Kristen Ashley fan like me, you might also be partly disappointed. Like me. I swear some of the phrases feel like they are taken directly from a KA (which is an overused acronym in the book) bestseller. Overall, I do like the storyline, outrageous and unbelievable as it is. I had a few good belly laughs and will never look at a motorcycle the same way again.

So. Three stars. There are many things to love about this book that grates on my nerves. I will definitely read this author again. I think maybe from another series, though. I’d like to see the author writing as herself without the KA twist on it.
