This is my 14th installment in my Man Crush Monday meme. Since I read mostly romance, I thought I’d share some of my “book crushes” with you, and possibly introduce you to some new reading material.
My Man Crush Monday for this week is Porter Smith from The Mother Road by Meghan Quinn.
Synopsis from goodreads.com: Never in a million years would I have pictured myself as an axe-wielding, dragon lady, chopping up multi-colored flannel shirts into my very own plaid mulch. But here I am, chopping away my frustrations.
It all started when my brother, Paul, convinced me to go on one last family road trip across the Mother Road with him and my dad.. Just like old times, right? Wrong. What Paul fails to mention is his best man, Porter, will be joining us, who just so happens to be my childhood crush and the man who broke my heart four years ago.
What is supposed to be a fun, family bonding experience across Route 66 turns into a war of pranks, awkward moments and bathrooms full of dirty flannel shirts and day old beard clippings. Paul’s know-it-all attitude and Porter’s devilish charm brings me to the brink of my sanity on my seven day trek across the United States with three bearded men in a small 1980’s RV.
Porter Smith is Paul’s best friend, and been secretly pining for his sister, Marley, for years. Porter broke Marley’s heart four years earlier – but Paul doesn’t know that. Porter is a total sweetheart. I loved him. He was absolutely hilarious – playing pranks of both Marley and Paul, but at the same time, just being sweet and hilarious. This book was really funny, and I would highly recommend it.
