The Wanderer by Shawn Kirsten Maravel

Blurb from Goodreads:

After getting out of the Army, Landon Bradley packs up his motorcycle and heads North West in hopes of closing up old battle wounds and maybe even settling down. Not accustomed to staying in one spot for too long, he's not certain that he'll ever find a place that he can truly call home.

When he finds himself stranded in a small Wyoming town, Landon meets Maxine Abrams, more affectionately known as Max. Her blunt honesty and humble generosity make him feel closer to home then he ever has before. But when his feelings for her grow too strong, the reality that, like everyone else, he could easily lose her too, Landon feels the ever present urge to leave again. And Landon must decide which call to heed. His heart or the open road.

My Thoughts:

After getting out of the Army, Landon hops on his bike and heads to Oregon. He grew up in foster care and honestly believed that he was destined to live alone, no family and definitely no love. When he crashes his bike the last thing he expects to find at the mechanic shop is a woman that total gets him. Maxine (Max) offers him a place to stay until he can get back on the road but these two have more in common that either of them expected.

I loved the story. The Landon and Max were written in a way that they felt like real people to me. I'm a big sucker for a man in uniform so this book appealed to me on many levels. This is definitely a book to read if you're looking for a good romance.
