THE MOTHER ROAD by Meghan Quinn
NA Romantic Comedy
Release date: January 12, 2016
Cover Designed by: Meghan Quinn
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.

I don’t know about anyone else but I would love nothing more than to see this book up on the big screen! Hilarious does not even begin to describe this latest book from one of my favorite authors. She definitely does not disappoint….as usual!
Marley gets talked into going on “one more road trip” with her brother who is due to be married soon and her father. Did I mention this trip is in their old and decrepit RV? The trip is sort of a tribute to their late mother…and hot dogs – don’t ask! But what Marley does not count on is that her brothers best friend Porter will also be joining them.
Naturally, Porter is the friend who not only did Marley have a major crush on when she was younger but somehow Porter has scarred her for life and she is less then thrilled to see his face. Or is she?
While on this cross country drive in a dilapidated RV, the things that go on are straight out of a comedy. Clogged toilets, a mishap of urine and lots of hot dogs, the craziest games with a mix of love under the stars all rolled into one in this book! I had so many laugh out loud and quite a few cringe worthy moments and even an “awwwwe” moment. This book had everything! Think of the worst, most humiliating things that could happen in an RV and then multiply that by 1,000….I honestly don’t know how Marley deals with it but she does it and I loved every hilarious moment!
Definitely pick up this book and get started to find out if Marley makes it through this trip with her overly dramatic brother, nostalgic father and her nemesis/love of her life, brothers best friend. I would love to read more about these three!

Marley’s about to embark on a road trip with her Dad and brother Paul to honor their mother’s memory before Paul gets married. She didn’t expect Porter, her brother’s best friend and former crush, to tag along. On the Mother Road, Route 66, they stop at KOA campgrounds and tourist traps while Paul and Marley squabble like rabid squirrels and Porter looks too damn hot. Can this crush turn into something more or will Porter and Marley never work out?
“Marley crosses her arms over her mouth-watering chest. I stare, straight up stare at her boobs. I’ll admit it, I stare, and for longer than I should…I just can’t seem to peel my eyes off of her. She’s sexy, she’s sensual, she’s a tight little pocket of sassy and sweet. We’re supposed to be just friends, but if she ever gave me an inkling of anything more, I would hop on that train and ride her fucking caboose like I was the conductor. Choo, choo…um, actually, let’s forget I even said that. I can see you raising the douche card. I revoke my sound effects; please don’t hold it against me.”
I really enjoyed The Mother Road because it was hilarious, raunchy and at times had me setting my kindle down so I could get back in my comfort zone. No spoilers but sharting….SHARTING!!! I am still emotionally scarred. I loved the sexual tension between Porter and Marley. Those two were never going to be able to stay away from each other for very long. Even with Princess Paul’s needy tendencies that distracted them. Paul…if you were my brother…you would be very, very sore. Groomzillas are now my biggest fear. I laughed a lot and savored the tender family moments reading this story.
If you find humor in dick slogans and brothers who act like divas, you need to read The Mother Road. I’ve never camped in an RV or traveled on Route 66 but this book makes me want to try it. Maybe. Without the stinky boys.
About The Author
Born in New York and raised in Southern California, Meghan has grown into a sassy, peanut butter eating, blonde haired swearing, animal hoarding lady. She is known to bust out and dance if “It’s Raining Men” starts beating through the air and heaven forbid you get a margarita in her, protect your legs because they may be humped.
Once she started commuting for an hour and twenty minutes every day to work for three years, she began to have conversations play in her head, real life, deep male voices and dainty lady coos kind of conversations. Perturbed and confused, she decided to either see a therapist about the hot and steamy voices running through her head or start writing them down. She decided to go with the cheaper option and started writing… enter her first novel, Caught Looking.
Now you can find the spicy, most definitely on the border of lunacy, kind of crazy lady residing in Colorado with the love of her life and her five, furry four legged children, hiking a trail or hiding behind shelves at grocery stores, wondering what kind of lube the nervous stranger will bring home to his wife. Oh and she loves a good boob squeeze!
