Four Stars From Romantic Times
Teri Campbell is a 16-year-old runaway who ends up on a bus traveling through Rock Springs, Wyoming. When offered a place to stay and a job as a waitress, she jumps at the chance. Truck stop owners Marsha and Joe treat Teri like family and offer her a room in their home. And although Mike Angel, a handsome trucker, is kind, he still treats Teri like a little sister.
One night their relationship undergoes a transformation and Mike sees her as a young woman. Circumstances soon force Teri to move on as the threat of discovery by her father, Sam, looms closer. Mike is faced with the daunting task of protecting all he holds dear from Sam's evil clutches.
Ms. McCormack has penned a unique romance simply because the characters are not typically found in the romance genre. Teri and Mike lack the power and extreme wealth endemic to many heroes and heroines, adding a genuine feel to this read. Because they are able to overcome abusive backgrounds, their romance is even more poignant.

The Word On Romance
TRUCK STOP is a heart touching look into the life of a runaway girl, her fears, her hopes and her determination to make a life for herself. Teri stands up for herself when the truckers attempt to flirt with her proving she has a strong will. Mike is the only one who can truly relate to all that Teri has been through. He is straight-forward and respected by everyone who knows him. Teri and Mike click instantly. Teri evolves into a confident young woman by the end of the story. The secondary characters of Joe and Marsha add depth and dimension to the story. The twists and turns the story takes will keep you on the edge of your seat..
Ms. McCormack has penned an entertaining novel of coming of age and standing up for yourself and the courage that takes. I heartily recommend TRUCK STOP!

Romancing the Web - Four Stars!
Truck Stop is a sweet, romantic story. One that will leave a smile lingering on your face for the
innocence of the young love the hero and heroine feel for each other, and a catch in your heart
when they face their greatest trial, and their greatest danger.
The story was well written, and brings to mind the intensity of passion, and fierce determinations
of youth. It takes the reader back to those wonderful years of a woman teetering on adulthood,
innocent, yet wise in the ways of love as she confronts the man she knows she's destined for.
Four stars to Allie McCormack for a wonderfully endearing romance and characters very true to

|Reviewed by Phyllis Fletcher
|Truck Stop's young heroine captured my heart as she tries frantically to escape her abusive father and finds love in the unlikeliest of places. Ms. McCormack has penned a well-written, can't-put-it-down story. I loved it. You will, too. (Hope she has other books in the chute!)|

|Read it. Loved it. And I'm not a fan of the romance genre. This is a novel that gets to the heart of a young woman and her courage and tells it well. I found I just couldn't put it down and I was sorry when it ended. Lets see some more from this author.|
