Fast Ride

Congratulations to "Jonetta A.", the winner in Michelle's giveaway. Thank you to all who participated!

I'm so excited for people to read FAST RIDE.  I used to drive by a roadside motel every night on my commute home from work.  One night I almost rear-ended a bright red Porsche and I thought, "Hmmm. What if ...?" 

FAST RIDE begins with two people meeting via fender bender and deciding to escape from their real lives for a hot one night stand.  I liked this beginning because no one imagines meeting the love of their life this way -- but that's exactly what happens for Jen and Garrett.

    Can't wait to hear what you think!

FAST RIDE is a spicy, surprisingly emotional, contemporary romance, the first in a brand-new series by Michelle Dayton. Find out what happens when Jen Appleton says yes to a one-night stand in a roadside motel with the hot, hot, hot Garrett Tracy. Fans of NO MORE MR. NICE GUY by Amy Andrews and BEAUTIFUL SECRET by Christina Lauren will devour this friends-with-benefits, fake relationship romance.


Jen Appleton is the woman who always says yes. To her boss. To her employees. To charity. To everyone except herself. But when she rear-ends a red Porsche on her way home from a nasty day at work, and the man driving the midlife-crisis cliché turns out to be hot, hot, hot, Jen decides tonight’s the night to say yes to things she’s never said yes to before.

Yes, to a one-night stand in a motel.

Yes, to the hottest night on record.

Yes, to anything Garrett Tracy wants to do to her body.

Garrett knows the chemistry between them can only be described as extreme. But it’s just one night. And then he can get back to work convincing his ex-girlfriend to give him another shot.

When Jen approaches Garrett as the only person in Chicago who might solve her massive work problem, he agrees to help—on the condition that Jen will coach him in winning back his ex. As they work on their projects, Jen and Garrett can’t resist the incredible attraction sparking between them. It’s the perfect friends-with-benefits situation. Until Jen’s heart finally forces her to start saying no
