Road—Tripped: A Romantic Comedy (Ad Agency Series Book 1) by Nicole Archer
Callie Murphy a copywriter, takes a job at her childhood friend Skip’s Ad Agency. She hates it, all everyone seems to do is goof off, drink every afternoon and just plain do nothing they should be. She can’t wait for the minutes to tick down so she can go home – or rather to her hotel room. Then her boss & best friend asks her to take on their biggest campaign, driving across the U.S. And blogging about it for two months. She refuses, especially because her travel companion is none other than super sexy, every woman in office is sleeping with Walker- or manwhore as she calls him. But she caves and agrees when her friend tells her he hired her so she could help him save the company. He needs her to do this.
Walker Rhodes hates his job, lost his creative drive, and is tired of all the women throwing themselves at him. He needs to make a change, to get the creative juices flowing again. He couldn’t wait another week for the blog tour to start, where he’d get to take pictures and video’s again. He’s repeatedly tried to be nice to Callie, she has cut him down and been quite rude towards him, and he has no idea why. Walker was scheduled to go on the traveling blog tour with his best friend Avery, until she found out she was pregnant and can’t travel now. So instead of putting up with the ice queen as he’s referred to Callie as, he quits his job. Their boss asked Avery to convince him to go on the trip, otherwise everyone will lose their jobs. Avery needs this job now that she’s pregnant. Walker feels horrible for making Avery upset, when she has so much more to lose than he does if he doesn’t go on the job. All because he couldn’t handle a tiny blue-eyed road bump on the way to finding himself.(*direct book quote).
Can Murphy and Walker get along and save the company during their cross country trip, or will they end up killing each other and the company? Are their assumptions of each other correct, or do they have each other all wrong? This has been a funny romantic comedy from the get go. The sexual tension between these two is so tight, it’s gonna snap. But which side will they fall on, together or at each other’s throats? You’ll have to read ROAD—TRIPPED to find out, but you’ll enjoy it!! I laughed, I cried, I said WTH are they thinking, smiled- or smirked as my husband said, I all out I LOVED it!!!

What’s worse than losing everything? Try driving a phallic-shaped RV across the country with a vile womanizing coworker.
Copywriter Callie Murphy has a bad attitude, a vicious tongue, and a serious aversion to Shimura Advertising’s resident manwhore, Walker Rhodes. Know where he can stick his good looks and Southern charm? She can think of a few creative places. Avoiding him wouldn’t be a problem, except her boss threatens to fire her if she doesn’t go along with him on their RV client’s cross-country tour.
Burnt-out art director, Walker, is sick of his job, tired of women, and in a big old creative rut. The upcoming client road trip is just what he needs to shake things up and rediscover his lost passion. But his plans go south when his partner drops out at the last minute, and Callie, the foul-mouthed tiny terror, takes her place. Unless he can find a way to thaw his icy coworker, he’s looking at two month’s of pure hell.
On the road, they experience one hilarious misadventure after another and soon find themselves on a life-changing journey. But when their paths veer off in different directions, will they hit a dead end?
