Date de parution (VO) : 28 février 2019

Genre : comédie romantique



Trame (VO): 

What happens when a high-heeled diva goes camping with her sister’s dog?

Avery Montgomery, fashionista and preacher’s daughter, needs a ride from Milwaukee to Los Angeles.

“Make my death quick, and please don’t tie me up. I’m claustrophobic.”

Jake Matthews, diva-hater, agrees to let her tag along on his annual but primitive trek to the West Coast.

“Okay, Princess, I’ll take you to L.A., but your crown won’t make it there in one piece.”

She’s desperate and out of options.
He’s ruthless and out of patience.

Don’t miss this sexy, hilarious, and heart-warming journey of self-discovery and raw … naked love.



MA NOTE : 5/5

Un ancien boxeur devenu restaurateur végan, une blonde bimbo, un grand chien, les trois sont à bord d’un pick-up, sur le point d’entamer un road trip alors qu’ils se connaissent à peine…

Que pourrait-il se passer ?

Oui, ça sent la comédie romantique déjantée à plein nez, mais ne vous y fiez pas, il s’agit de Jewel E. Ann, après tout !

Si vous avez déjà lu ses livres, alors vous n’êtes pas sans savoir que cette auteure prend un malin plaisir à jouer avec notre petit cœur sensible de lecteur.

Et cette RomCom n’échappe pas à la règle.

Oui, les fous rires sont garantis, tout comme les moments de passion, mais ne perdons pas de vue que ces personnages, si diamétralement opposés, ont chacun un passé. Et chaque passé apporte avec soi son propre lot de vicissitudes, de mauvaises décisions, de tragédies parfois, de démons…

Il y aura donc des moments plus dramatiques et déchirants entre Avery et Jake.

Autre « plus » très agréable, des caméos avec les personnages d’autres livres, ce qui fait toujours très, très, très plaisir.

J’ai lu ce livre en deux jours, relu les derniers chapitres, et je ne peux jamais résister à une bonne RomCom avec un zest de drame, des personnes parfaitement imparfaits, mais avec le véritable amour : l’amour à nu…

Encore une super lecture de Jewel E. Ann !

“Psst …”

I nudge Jake. He groans.


He rolls away from me.

“Jake! I need the truck keys,” I whisper-yell.

Another groan.

My eyes flit between his bared torso turned away from me and his partially unzipped duffel bag at his feet. Jake has nice feet. I’m not sure I’ve ever thought this about a guy before. But—I move my phone’s flashlight an inch closer—yes indeed, he has nice feet. Not a single nasty callous, and his toenails are perfect.

Not fair. What the heck, God? Why would you give a guy such perfect feet? Jackass Jake must use an expensive foot cream.

I roll my eyes at myself. What is this? The beginning of a foot fetish? Therapy of some sort might be in my future. After one last inspection of his flawless feet, and maybe a nanosecond glance back up his bare torso—because why the hell not?—I inspect the contents of his bag.

It has five outer pockets, but I come up empty. No truck keys. Unzipping the main part feels a little too snoopy. Biting the corner of my lip, I sweep the beam of my phone’s light across his still body. If I’m completely honest, his feet are attached to some other really nice body parts, but why start being honest now?

The light goes out. “Shit.” I frown at the dead screen. What happened to my final three percent?


I need the key. I need to charge my phone.

“Jakey Jakey, wakey wakey,” I whisper, knowing he’s nothing more than a dead log on top of a sleeping bag. A dead log with sexy feet and a drool-worthy trunk I could climb—


I must NEVER think of the Devil as sexy. Did I learn nothing about temptation from Eve and the complete debacle in Eden? A questionably flawed story if you ask me. Still—religion permanently haunts one’s conscience, and I’m no exception.

Don’t snoop.

Wait until he wakes up.

It’s not like it’s an emergency.

It’s just my phone—my connection to the rest of the world, a way to see in the dark, keeper of time, contact list, social media notifications, my savior in an emergency … MY LIFE!

Muzzling my conscience, I dive into the main compartment of Jake’s duffle bag, the way a police officer would break open a door after a 9-1-1 call. It’s filled with clothes, but within ten seconds I have all aforementioned clothes strewn all around me.

No keys.

A jingle startles me, and my head whips back, but it’s just Swarley. “Don’t!” I warn in my sternest whisper as he abandons his spot in the corner and plops down on my sleeping bag. “Get. Off!”

He shakes his head once. I realize how crazy that sounds, but it’s true. Swarley is not your average dog, he’s a demon—much like Jake—out to destroy me. He can do things like nod and shake his head as well as rip my poor hand apart when he sees something worth chasing, much like Anthony ripped my heart apart when he discovered that chocolate does in fact taste amazing.


Before my herbivorous travel buddy wakes up, I start shoving his clothes back into his bag, taking a deep inhale. What’s that smell? It’s good. Really good.

Herbaceous? Woodsy? Maybe piney, but we’re not amidst that many pine trees here. Bringing one of Jake’s shirts to my nose, I take a whiff.

Oh … that’s nice. Son of a bitch! Sexy—uh—I mean, soft feet and amazing detergent.

Eat the shiny red apple, Eve …

I’m not going to eat his shirt, but I indulge in one more sniff before—

“Why are you smelling my underwear?”

“Shit!” I jump, tucking the shirt behind my back.


Je vous conseille vivement ce livre!
