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!?


Warning: This book contains some dark humor, a lot of witty banter, and two characters making more bad decisions than good ones. Also contains adult themes, language, and graphic sexual activity.





5 of 5 stars

If your looking for a fun book with crazy characters and a zany story-line, then you will love this book.
Right from the start I could tell I as going to like everything about it, the two main characters are a little of the wall but you like them. 
After a fun night out Jodi finds a dead body in the boot of her car and this is the start of a ridiculously funny book filled with over the top situations, dark humor and witty banter between two best friends. Archer was her older brothers friends but over the years Jodi and Archer became close so much so that now she is his best friend. I really enjoyed the two of them together, Jodi is quirky and Archer is the king of the one liners even at the most inappropriate times. They decide to retrace Jodi's movements from the night before to try and get answers about who the man is and how he ended up in there. There are secrets revealed along the way and along the way they give in to the chemistry between them. 
There is a unexpected twist to the story that I never saw coming but it only adds to this fun romantic story. Give it a read you won't regret it.

Is it fair to say that only in Stylo's mind this would be the way to start a romantic comedy? Just a Little Junk is a whole lot of fun. Filled with wildly entertaining and ridiculous situations, it is the start of something beautiful...or just insane.
What do you do when there's a body in your trunk? In Jodi's case, there was no question- you grab your best friend for help. And so begins a unique journey...
I wanted to read this book because the blurb is my kind of quirky...who knew I was so weird. I loved it and couldn't help smirking most of the way through it. Just a Little Junk is perfect for taking the edge off. Enjoy it!

Author Bio

Crazy woman living in an undisclosed location in Alaska (where the need for a creative mind is a necessity!), I have been writing since ... forever? Yeah, that sounds about right. I have been told that I remind people of Lucille Ball - I also see shades of Jennifer Saunders, and Denis Leary. So basically, I laugh a lot, I'm clumsy a lot, and I say the F-word A LOT.

I like dogs more than I like most people, and I don't trust anyone who doesn't drink. No, I do not live in an igloo, and no, the sun does not set for six months out of the year, there's your Alaska lesson for the day. I have mermaid hair - both a curse and a blessing - and most of the time I talk so fast, even I can't understand me.

Yeah. I think that about sums me up.

TROUBLE.
That’s all she is and all she’ll ever be.
What in the hell was I thinking getting involved with her?
Everyone knows her reputation precedes her.
But I’ll be damned if I don’t like it.
Hurricane Ava crashes to shore wreaking havoc, the beautiful disaster she is.
And I love it.
What’s worse, she does too.
So, why am I in love with her? Because, she loves me.
She just doesn’t know it yet.



I just want to say WOW. Just WOW. I seriously hated Ava. No redeeming qualities whatsoever in Changing Lanes and now she is one of my favorite people and i was rooting for her. I DID NOT see that U-turn (brillliant). I love your writing. And i love how when I read your books I get to know all characters. Not just one or two. Bravo!!! Great great job!! 
This book! Goodness woman! Your characters are so real. You managed to make me hate Ava in Changing Lanes and love her...even at her worst...in U-Turn. And Riley! There were times I wanted to rip his heart out. Thank you for giving me this privilege! You are one damn good storyteller!
I find myself halfway home when I do a U-turn. I hit the gas, speeding toward Myrtle Beach. My tears fall once again as I think of him leaving and I’m not the last person he sees. I need to be the last thing he sees. The fissure my heart has suffered begins to quake as I pray I make it back to him. 
I park at the airport entrance, racing through every checkpoint I can before actually yelling, “He’s leaving. I have to tell him I love him.” The airport officials have mercy on me when I explain he’s a soldier and I’m crazy for him. “He may not make it back, he’s deploying.” 
Pointed in the right direction, I sprint to his departure gate. His family standing close by the window, I know then he’s already boarded. I push past several onlookers to the wide expanse of glass standing between us. 
I search, switching between his family and the plane, to gauge where he will be. My chest constricts as I get a glimpse of him for the first time in fatigues. He’s breathtaking. As my pride swells, I lay my hand on the window, reaching for him. 
I begin to lose hope when his eyes suddenly dart to me. A smile growing on his face as I fight to dry mine. The plane begins to roll, and I follow it, never moving my hand from the clear barrier. When Riley raises his hand, pressing it against the glass, I fall to my knees. 
My eyes never leave his face nor does my hand break our connection. I stay there as he taxi’s down the runway and lifts off. Leaving me. I push against the glass with both hands, hoping beyond all things I could break it and run after him. 
I sit against the window, clutching my chest as if my heart has fallen from it until Walker picks me up from the floor. He carries me from the building, my life in ashes. Walker sits with me until I regain some semblance of composure. I’m not ever far from plummeting over the edge again.

Leaona, also known as Lea, lives with her husband, cat and two dogs near Myrtle Beach. She was born and raised in WV by her parents whom she adores before attending Marshall University. A small business owner and mother of three, she enjoys Carolina Panthers and Marshall University Football, reading, writing, gardening, crafts, NASCAR, TWD, hot rods, and surf fishing.
Leaona was inspired to write while she raised her family, never dreaming one day, she would be published. While loving all genres of books, Lea writes contemporary romance stories that are not your everyday love stories. Gritty and true to life, she draws from her life and loves to create her characters. 
Leaona's debut novel will release June 7, 2016. Cherry Grove is the first in The Cove Series. She’s your everyday girl and lives to connect with her fans via social media. Leaona also doesn't mind dishing about her favorite authors and their books. Beach, life, and love.
