Rodeo cowboy, Dakota Scott, has a problem. His truck has broken down and he's stranded in small town New Mexico. To complicate matters he's picked up another stray, this time a woman who needs his help.
Robyn Sparrow is a washed-up celebrity, famous in the 90's for being the youngest of three sisters who had their own TV show. Now she's reached rock bottom. When she meets Dakota, she's desperate enough to promise him anything simply to get a ride back to the West Coast.
While Dakota struggles to understand Robyn, he comes to care for her and unwittingly leads her back toward the spotlight that almost killed her. But can she resist the lure of Hollywood and can Dakota really believe she'd give it all up for love?
A metaphor for Robyn and a reality for Dakota’s truck.
She’s a hot mess, a Hollywood has been. He’s rodeo.

I received a complimentary copy of this book and I am voluntarily reviewing it.
I didn't finish the book. I had to force myself and finally gave up at 15% of the way in. I typically love Ms. Pearce's work but the female protagonist is just awful in my opinion. I personally would have slapped her silly and left her on the side of the road myself.
I will continue to try and finish this over time. I don't tolerate people like this in real life so I certainly don't want to read about one.
This is an entertaining story about two people as different as day and night. Dakota and Robin mix like oil and water and yet it is a beautifully written love story. The story describes all of the good and bad that occurs during their unplanned courtship. Their characters are strong and well developed and compliment each other, even when they are at each others throats. I loved the story, sometimes I laughed and sometimes I wanted to cry. This is a great story that is worth reading.
