TRUCKER by Jamie Schlosser
A Standalone Novel
Genre: New Adult Romance

Series: The Good Guys Book 1
I know what you’re whispering in the car as you pass me by.

When you see me walking along the side of the road with my thumb out, you’ll probably keep driving without giving me a second glance. You probably think I’m foolish. Naïve.

You might assume I’ve made some bad decisions.

You might think I’m too young to be on my own.

You might be right.


I love my job, but driving an eighteen-wheeler comes with a certain stereotype. When you hear I’m a trucker, a specific image might come to mind. Uneducated. Dirty. Perverted. Rough around the edges and a little bit dangerous.

You might be right.

But the truth is, I’m not any of those things. In fact, I’m pretty far from it.

You might be right.

You’d be surprised to find out I’m one of the good guys.

You might be right.

I’d only been driving for about a mile when I saw someone walking along the side of the road in the distance.

As I got closer I saw the backpack and blonde hair. She turned toward my semi before sticking her thumb out.

“Shit,” I whispered, recognizing her right away. Even from a distance, I could see the hopeful expression on her face, and I felt something twist in my chest.

What the hell did she think she was doing? Hitchhiking was dangerous.

For a split second, I thought about not stopping. I could just keep on driving and forget I ever saw her.

But just as fast, all the possible scenarios played out in my mind. All the things that could happen to her. All the sick, depraved people who could be the ones to pull over and lure her into their vehicle with the promise of a safe ride.

I’d never picked up a hitchhiker before.
Had never planned on it.
But there was no way I could leave this girl out there on her own.


Trucker is not like you would imagine. I personally think of truckers how they’re described in the book; large, smelly, pervy men. Travis is not like that at all. He’s a good guy. Tall, muscular and attractive. 

Angel is a runaway. She has packed up and left a foster home with the intent to be on the run until she turns 18 and is no longer a ward of the state. She is running low on funds so she tries hitchhiking. VERY luckily for her, nice guy Travis is the one to stop for her. 

Travis can’t just leave this innocent, pretty girl hitchhiking on the side of the road for who knows what to happen to her. So he steps up and decides to help her out. And is soon wrapped up in Angel just as Angel is with Travis.

4 stars!
