How do you fall out of love with a man who’s all in?

Isabelle Dixon never should have said yes to that first date, but she couldn’t resist Shane Kelley’s larger-than-life personality. Except now Shane seems determined to make their no-strings fling into something more.

If she thought dating Shane was hard work, breaking up is proving to be much harder. Especially since she’s planning on making some major life changes that don’t include staying out all night, Jell-O shots, and a sex toy shop punch card. She needs a restful cabin getaway—alone—to gather her thoughts. And the strength to finally end things for good.

Shane has always prided himself on being the good-time guy. Exactly Isabelle’s type…or so he thought. Yet ever since he suggested her moving in, she’s been pulling back. Thing is, Shane does everything with gusto—including falling in love.

He’s not about to let her get away that easily. Even if it means chasing her heart down a crazy road to prove that no matter what life throws at them, they make a damned good team.

Warning: Contains a strange road trip with several weird tourist stops, some hot sex in a car wash, and two people who are just crazy enough to be perfect for one another.


Isabelle and Shane embark on a road trip with the goal of trying to decide if they are ready to take the next step in their relationship. Shane wants Isabelle to move in with him. Shane is the happy party guy and he thinks Isabelle is the happy party girl. Isabelle is scared that if she is living with Shane he will see that she is not the happy party girl he thinks she is. Isabelle was recently diagnosed fibromyalgia and is scared that if she can’t keep up with Shane he won’t love her like he does now. Their road trip ends up being a soul searching trip with high emotions as Shane learns of Isabelle new diagnosis and needs to decide if he can be the man for her to lean on. Isabelle makes the road trip exciting with fun games and extra site-seeing stops. Shane and Isabelle can’t keep their hands off of each other and their road trip was made even more fun with the scorching sex in the most unexpected places. Isabelle and Shane started their relationship based on attraction and scorching hot sex, but will that be enough?

This book is part of a series, but can be read as a stand alone. It Takes Two is the second book in The Counting on Love Series.
