    H. Claire Taylor’s story is sensational! The reader will quickly relate to their tour guide, love advisor, and narrator, Natalie. Her endless struggle and memorable missteps in her search to find a suitable partner in the big wide world is engaging. And yes in this case the world is the big, wide, tall state of Texas, but you do not need to be a Texan to enjoy the book. Quite a few of Natalie’s situations and internal dialogue hit home for me; the level of authenticity Taylor created with this story is truly fantastic. Also there were so many times I found myself laughing out loud (even when in the company of others). The witticism and wicked scenarios were just too much to keep inside at points in the story. So if you have happened to have stumbled across this book while re/searching in hopes for your next novel, well the stars have aligned: this is the right book and the right time to read it is right now.

    This book was somewhat fun. The first pages kind of confuse me since it wasn't what I have picture it in my mind from the description of the book, I thought this was a girl having a road trip and in between said road trip meeting guys, which clearly wasn't the case. Natalie is a jaded city girl chasing tail through out Texas just to get laid, I mean she literally travel hours to get to the houses of this boys to get laid and most of time she doesn't get it, so sad. She is mental and not only for chasing tail, but because she is obsessed by having sex, so obsessed that she sees everything from that point of view. She goes crazy trying to think why one of these dudes doesn't make any moves on her.There are only snippets of these "almost relationships" in a 4 year period of time in the life of Natalie which is a bit confusing, jumping from one to the other without any actual conclusion, plus it left unfinished the most important "relationship" of the book, supposedly the one (which felt like a douche to me), as well as falling short for explaining Natalie's intimacy issues and her sleeping around with one-nighters.Well this book has some really fun parts and it was entertaining, so there is that.

    Living in a place the locals sometimes call "Texas north" because we have many of the same wide open spaces with farming, ranching, oilwells, and rednecks as down south, this book gave me a lot of laugh-out-loud moments that made me feel right at home. The writing is fantastic and the author has a clever way with tongue-in-cheek humor. I just never completely connected with Natalie, though. She is so young from my perspective that most of her interactions with people just irritated me. I understood the comedy that resulted from those interactions but I couldn't see the 'tragedy' in them until it was spelled out in the last chapter. To be brutally honest, I wasn't invested enough to care. I also wanted more out of the ending. It was wonderful that he showed up in the end, but I really wanted to know why he had behaved the way he did.

    This book, like most of life's road trips, had ups and downs for me. When Natalie was in the car going from town to town all over Texas, I found myself chuckling and her banter. But, when she reached her destinations with each guy, I found myself getting a little bored. This book is a quick read. It's cute and funny. Nothing too deep or thought provoking but I think that was part of the charm of Natalie's story.

    This is an odd book, but I enjoyed it.Natalie, our first-person protagonist, is not an especially engaging character... and yet, she grew on me as she navigated the ups and downs of her life.I have never been to Texas, but people who have praised this as capturing an essence of its various areas. I liked the way the atmosphere of the various parts of Texas were reflected in Natalie's relationships.I did like the complexity.

    AmusingI liked this book. It was unique in it's delivery. The places Nat travelled through, stopped at and talked about was interesting and funny. !y only gripe, hence why it only got 4 stars, was the crappy short ending, made worse because I am now racking my brains trying to remember who Brian was...

    Good ReadingI was quite surprised at how much I enjoyed this book! The main character is a hoot. And being born and bred Texan I could really related to the road trips. I am sitting here with a shit eating grin on my face thinking about some of my road trips for men! LOL

    I enjoyed this quite a bit, even if it brought back memories of less than clever decisions and a determination to be attracted to the wrong kind of guy. The book made me smile in a lot of places and snort loudly a few times.

    I gave this one star because I couldn't give it zero. It was a free offer from BookBub. Now I know why it was free.

    Made me laugh! That's hard being I'm in rehab for my second stroke at 42. Anyhow, it was the cutest story, and I can identify with the endless driving in Texas lol. Read it fast with a bum eye. Hope there's another story with Natalie.

    It starts off a little slow and I didn't get a feel for / like the main character till the second part. After that I loved her. She's so real. So funny. Her journey is kinda what I wanted for Emily but she seems stronger, sassier. This is a book I wish I wrote.

    Excellent tale of a single woman driving through Texas - with some adventures thrown in. A bit of humor - wry - but very nice. And a story of self discovery and dating and the problems therein. Very vivid scenes of what it is like to drive long distances on roads that are not over populated in the heat. Reminds me of some of the things I did while much younger. Also the doubts about being outside in the woods and critters that might be there reminds me of childhood - and later.A bit quirky but engrossing. Will read more by author.
