Great first effort

I have listened to dozens of Audiobooks and have found many not to my personal taste, This book would normally fall into that category but I stumbled upon totally by accident and while I have not completed listening to the book it is a great first effort by a new author. Keep it up Allie!!!!

Loved It

I got this free copy via audiobook boom and this is my voluntary review. This was a well-written story with several plot twist. Every character was necessary for the story to be complete. Even the bus driver. All of the truckers who were regular customers added to the complex plot. I am so glad that The owners of the truck stop saw the potential in both the H/h. They were instrumental in doing what had to be done. I am also glad that Carl was not her Dad and that her real dad kept looking for her until he found her. This was a feel good story and the narrator brought everything to life.

Incredibly moving love story...............

Truck Stop is the story of two incredibly strong young people damaged by their pasts but not letting those tragedies define them. Teri is a young woman running away from her abusive father when she happens upon three of the most amazing people that will forever impact her life. She meets Joe and Martha, the owners of a truck stop in Wyoming, who take her into their home, give her a job, and make her a part of their family. At the same time, she meets Mike, a trucker who recognizes in Teri a kindred spirit as he also ran away from his abusive father at a young age. The story and action take off from this point as Teri truly comes into herself under the loving attention of the people of this small Wyoming town and begins to develop a loving friendship and eventually maybe something more with Mike. Of course, the road to them falling in love was full of obstacles, but these two people completed each other in every way, and I felt privileged to watch their journey unfold.

As much as I loved the drama, romance and intrigue of the story, it is truly the amazing characters that make this book so moving. I live in a small western town myself, and I thought the author did a terrific job of portraying just what I love about the people of my hometown. The acceptance, kindness and compassion of the people in Teri and Mike's life left me with such a feeling of happiness that I want to listen to the book all over again. Combine that with the beautifully written love story between Mike and Teri, and all they go through to triumph in the end, and I can't imagine any listener not enjoying this audiobook as much as I did. I will definitely be keeping my eyes open for more by this talented author on Audible in the future.

Jay Dyess is a new narrator for me, and I thought that he did an excellent job with the narration. He has an incredibly smooth and pleasurable tone of voice, and he makes a great storyteller. He handles the male and female roles equally well, and he uses several native dialects with ease. Overall, his performance added that special touch to an already incredible audiobook.

I received a copy of this audiobook at my request in exchange for this honest review.

Great story, with some surprises!

I really enjoyed this story.

I fell in love with the characters before chapter 2. The naration was great, bringing the story to life and giving each character a unique voice.

There were some love scenes in the book, but they were not pointless, there was a purpose to them.
The story kept me hooked from start to finish. I totally loved the ending and the surprises. I won’t say more, as i don’t want to spoil the book for anyone.

This will suck you in!

If you love a good story with some meat to it, look no further! Allie McCormick's Truck Stop is one you will want to listen to. Terri has runaway from an abusive situation to find home and a new family at a truck stop. She is young, but not too young to fall in love, and a constant driver that stops is one she has her eye on. Mike is a responsible man, product of a difficult childhood, but has a good head on his shoulders. When these two finally get together, will they find their happily ever after? I loved this story as it encompasses so many topics. Runaway teens, teen pregnancy and sexual abuse are topics many authors will not take on, but this story hits it right on the head. It's realistic and compassionate. It takes us through what a runaway teen may think and go through as well as the fear of being found. I loved the way this story unfolded, the warm and happy environment Terri found, and the suspense that came in the climax! It's a great listen and I hope to hear more from Allie!

This is my first listen by Jay Dyess, and I enjoyed him! He has a good pace, and his voices are distinguishable and pertinent to the character. I loved his voice for the dad, very charming and authoritative, couldn't have been more spot on! I will watch for more releases by him.

Great Story! Great Listen🎧 Amazing Twists & Drama!

Truck Stop
By: Allie McCormack
Narrated by: Jay Dyess

This is a great, enjoyable story. It is original, well written and well told. The storylines are interesting and realistic, they captivated me from start to end. The characters are complex and well developed. I admired Teri, her strength and courage to get away from a bad situation and determination to make it on her own. I loved ‘Truck Stop’, loved how friendly the owners, Marsha and Joe, were and their willingness to extend themselves to help others. I also loved the camaraderie amongst the truckers and how they looked out for each other as well as the people at the Truck Stop, like their very own tight knit community. Mike is a regular at the Truck Stop, Teri crushed on him but he treated her like a kid sister. Eventually he opens his eyes and sees her as the woman she is. There was great chemistry between the two and I thought they were great for each other. A lot goes on in this book, there is plenty of drama, some suspense and great twists as well as romance. I was very happy with the way everything worked out and that justice was served. Allie McCormack thank you for this great and entertaining story and the emotional rollercoaster ride.

I listened to the Audible edition, Jay Dyess is a terrific narrator and voice performer. He brings the characters to life, gives each their own voice and personality. You can hear the emotions of the characters in his performance. He is an entertaining storyteller and a pleasure to listen to. Thank you for this great listen🎧
