“Truck Stop Tango” is a good story written by Krissy Daniels. I liked the cover a lot. It gave me the impression that one of the characters in the story was going to be someone who was very cool, sexy, and mysterious! The author was able to fill the story with plenty of moments where I was anxious to read the next page or even the next chapter. The story went back and forth between the past and present making the story a little rough to follow.
One of the main characters is named, “Slade”. Slade lives in her hometown among people she grew up with but has kept a humongous secret from them. She is the owner of the local diner who serves the community trying to mind her own business. It seems she was doing fine keeping her secret until things start changing in the community. Part of that change would be Tango coming back to town!!!!!!!
Tango is another important character for this story! He is someone who cared deeply for Slade when they were kids and maybe still does but “life” got in the way. It was interesting to see where the author was going with this character. I was especially anxious to see how long it was going to take him to figure out a big secret written into this story! It also sounded like he had his own demons to deal with from his hometown and back in NY where his was living for six years.
Slade and Tango were interesting together! There was the question whether they were going to rekindle their romance as adults. Maybe or maybe not.
There were some other characters that added some goodness to this story. I liked the character named, “Rocky”. He sounded too cute for words! A little man who was a big ball of energy with a big heart. I think he might have softened a couple of hearts as the story developed and finished.
The story is written full of deception, moments of mystery, suspense, and even some romance. I am giving this story 4 stars! The author wrote a good story!!! I would recommend this story for someone who may believe in fate.
Six years ago, I made the biggest mistake of my life.
I betrayed Slade Mason. Then disappeared.
I’m home now. And I want her back.
Trouble is, she’s lying. Keeping secrets. Pushing me away.
What she doesn’t know is that not even her deception could make me leave her again.
Five years ago, I made the toughest decision of my life.
I did the unthinkable. Then covered my crime.
Now, Tango Rossi is back. And I want him more than ever.
Problem is, he wants answers I can’t give.
What he doesn’t realize is that his betrayal is the very reason we can never be together.
