.... if anyone asks, that's all that's in your trunk. Definitely don't say anything about the dead guy you just found back there!

Jodi Morgan is having a bad weekend.

After partying a little too hard, she wakes up with a monster hangover and almost no recollection of the night before. So imagine her surprise when she looks in her trunk and instead of finding a spare tire, she finds the last guy she'd danced with before blacking out.

Who is he? How did he get in there? How did he die? And oh dear lord, did she kill him!?

When her older brother's best friend offers to help, things start looking up. They've known each other since she was thirteen, and ten years later, he still treats her like a little kid - surely, committing felonies has to trigger some sort of spark. Together, they wind up going on an adventure that takes them all over Los Angeles. From raves to penthouses to strip clubs. All in the search for the answer to her question.

Who is the dead guy in my trunk!?


I'm not really excited when Stylo Fantome announced this book because I wish for another The Bad Ones or Kane Trilogy. A romantic suspense with comedy didn't really mix well in my mind. But surprisingly I finished the book and enjoyed it. Maybe I'm in the good mood, huh?

Let me ask you a question. What are you gonna do when found a dead guy in your trunk? Imagine how do Jodi Morgan feel after bad hangover and she barely remember anything. Fortunately, Archer Calhoun, her older-brother's-high-school-best-friend-slash-partner-in-crime-slash-the-dude-she-wanted-to-bang-so-hard-it-made-her-grind-her-teeth-at-night is ready to help. But how 'bizarre' is their journey from selling cokes into mind-blowing sex?

She was upset because for ten years, she had been fantasizing about kissing Archer Calhoun. Dreaming about it, wishing for it. He would kiss her under a full moon and realize she was everything he'd ever wanted in life, blah blah blah.
Never once had any of those fantasies involved a dead body, the police, or being on the 101 in broad daylight.

Whew.. Jodi aka Jojo is a wild girl. Maybe her motto is 'Work hard, play harder'. At first, there's not much to tell about Jojo beside her job as a waitress in strip club and beat up car. She's just crazily poor. Then, she asked for Archer whose strangely calm to start their mission. Who the hell is the dead guy?

The only thing I like and enjoy is the silly banter between them. Jojo and Archer has weird chemistry that really bind them together. They're just couldn't hands off each other. From their description, both of them are too-perfect-to-be-true; except for their (sometimes)annoying attitude. Still, they're really amused me until the end.

I don't expect much because the story somehow is very predictable. Still nicely written but I didn't like the twist. It makes everything seems coincidental. Overall, it was an easy and enjoyable read without makes me think too hard. I'd recommend this as a light suspense with sprinkles of mischievous.

You're one to talk. You had a crush on me for way longer, and never said a word.”
“I'm a delicate lay-dee, we don't just blurt things out like that.”
“Jo, there is literally nothing lady like about you.”
