Blurb: For the free-spirited Park Williams, leaving the relative safety of the Willow Springs Ranch for a remote cabin near Flagstaff to spend some quality alone time with his new boyfriend seems like a no-brainer. They can get to know each other while hiding away from the bad guys who may or may not be looking to kill his lover. At least it seems like a good idea right up until the minute he is standing on the front porch, with a man he’s known less than three weeks, and who spent two of those weeks in police custody. Oh, shit.
Tanner Triplett is having a bad month. After two attempts on his life, he’s helped put his father and brother behind bars, lost his beloved ranch, and oh yeah…stepped out of the closet in a big way. But it remains to be seen if he’s in bigger danger from the men he’s agreed to testify against, or the golden-haired, cosmic-quoting devil trying to kill him with soy-gurt.
Join Park, Tanner, and their dogs Scooby and Taco as they make the move east to the Mountain Shadows Resort to meet up with their new neighbors and join in the fun that is Pulp Friction 2014.

Review: When I started reading this book, I recognized Park and was curious. I have the Willow Springs Books and thought Park was familiar from the title of the last book. As I read on, I found out I was right and wondered if I would be totally lost reading this without having finished the WSC books. But, as I read the other books in this round of Pulp Friction, I was intrigued by the mention of Park. I will say that the book stood on it’s own, pretty well. Though, it did make me want to read the book Park is in from the other series. Just as each of these books entices you to read the rest.
I absolutely loved Park. He is a very intriguing feisty, colourful character with lots of heart. I loved that he is vegan and strict in his beliefs. Park and Tanner fit into this series seamlessly and I hope I get to see much more of them.
The story had an interesting plot, introduced the characters well and had enough backstory to fill you in and draw you in.
I recommend this if you like cowboys (yes Tanner is a cowboy), mystery, dogs, young love and interactive series this is for you.
