The Mother Road by Meghan Quinn ~~~~ 5 STARS! HILARIOUS!
“Never in a million years would I have pictured myself as an axe-wielding, dragon lady, chopping up multi-colored flannel shirts into my very own plaid mulch. But here I am, chopping away my frustrations.
It all started when my brother, Paul, convinced me to go on one last family road trip across the Mother Road with him and my dad… Just like old times, right? Wrong. What Paul fails to mention is his best man, Porter, will be joining us, who just so happens to be my childhood crush and the man who broke my heart four years ago.
What is supposed to be a fun, family bonding experience across Route 66 turns into a war of pranks, awkward moments and bathrooms full of dirty flannel shirts and day old beard clippings. Paul’s know-it-all attitude and Porter’s devilish charm brings me to the brink of my sanity on my seven day trek across the United States with three bearded men in a small 1980’s RV.”
*** OMG! This book is freaking hilarious. Meghan outdone herself on comedy. I have not laugh this hard in forever. Literally peed my pant, tears raining down from my face, clutching my stomach from pain kind of laugh.
“Nice bra, by the way. I didn’t know you could still fit in a training bra.”
– Ooooohh … burn! 🙂
Paul is getting married so he wanted to take one last road trip with his sister Marley and father Bernie. One little secret he forgot to mention is that he invited his best friend Porter to join the family fun. Did I mention Porter broke Marley’s heart 4 years before? Well, he did! Imagine going on a road trip with the boy who shattered your heart and ruined you for all men. Well, it makes for a very interesting journey especially in close quarters Can she survived?
“You know what? You are right. We should really do some catching up. Tell me, how many women have you banged since you left me naked and alone?”
This whole book surrounding 4 main characters travelling in an RV across the country one last road trip as a family. I don’t know how Meghan did it but she made a whole full length novel out of it and let me tell you it’s freaking funny and wicked … you cannot stop reading it. This book is a love story between Porter and Marley of course, but it is also a sweet story about family’s time, how they all love each other, and how they keep their mother’s memory alive. It was definitely heart-warming to see the deep bond between Paul, Marley and their father. They love Porter dearly because he has been part of their family for so long – he is just like a second son to Bernie. A lot of time I only like one or two characters in a book and then some one eventually annoyed me. Not this book, I really fall in love with all characters. Paul is kind, sweet, a little feminine at time (you will see the tricks they play on each other ). Marley is beautiful, successful blogger, a spitfire. Porter is packing a hot body probably from all the time working on Bernie’s farm… swoon. He wants Marley badly but it’s the forbidden love with your best friend’s sister that stop his track. Bernie is sweet, caring and super fun – you can’t help but want him to find love again. You just have to read this book – all the tricks, the teasing, and the banters make me laugh so hard the whole time. Don’t worry since this is a romance – there will be plenty of angst, sexual tension and yummy scenes… wink wink wink! Also, I got a little emotional at the end reading the letters but not too bad… it’s an important of the story.
“Marley, I would have jumped at the chance of being with you back then but I knew I had to let you go so you could grow into the intelligently beautiful woman you are today.”
Meghan’s romance comedy book is brilliant. I freaking LOVED IT!!!
It was a very nice break from all the heavy, ugly cry book I usually read . If you are looking for a feel good, hilarious comedy, sweet, sexy, heart-warming story – this is definitely a book for you.
