Xanthe's Review: Riding the Hammer Lane by Cassie DeckerIt’s long-haul trucker Eddie’s first Christmas away from home, and he picks up the CB radio in search of friendly voice. He doesn’t expect to reconnect with his old instructor—and brief but passionate fling—Colton. Eddie realizes the scarf he’s been knitting symbolizes the love and longing he’s been trying to deny. When fate brings them back together on a lonely, snowy stretch of Iowa highway, will they grab hold of their second chance and acknowledge the love woven tightly between them?

4✨s by Xanthe
This is a second chance romance for two truck drivers who haven’t seen each other in a year or two since Eddie passed his driving qualification, taught by Colton. The two men had a whirlwind fling and Colton has been on Eddie’s mind ever since, but especially this Christmas as it’s his first away from his family. He’s full of melancholy and thoughts of past love. Unexpectedly they connect on the road over the CB radio and meet up.

Though a short story, there’s a strong connection for the two men and heat definitely sparks sparks between them. I really felt their emotions, especially during a bit of drama where Eddie is forced to rescue someone. It was scary for a moment but Colton is soon there to calm Eddie and offer support. I loved the two men together and how the author built up the story for them. Definitely and enjoyable read in this series.

About the Cassie Decker
Cassie Decker started writing love stories once she read her first romance novel in high school and instantly fell in love with falling in love. She believes everyone deserves a happily ever after, whether the men in her stories rope cattle in the rodeo, live in a tropical paradise, or are just trying to survive in a post-apocalyptic world.

When she’s not writing romance, she’s reading it. And if there’s time between that, you can find Cassie getting her geek on with cosplay costumes, comic-cons, and video game binges. Besides being a total nerd, she likes to knit naughty rainbow key-chain charms for her friends, home-brew her own beer, and practice her ukulele. Cassie also loves playing in the Colorado Wilderness with her husband and her corgi pup, Murphy, when she’s not busy obsessing over the fictional men plotting their steamy love stories in her head, that is.
