**NOTE: This is a short story I wrote up real quick. But it is actually part of a series that will continue.** Joey takes a hard blow to the heart when long-time boyfriend - Doug - suddenly dumps him during their anniversary vacation, leaving him stranded without money or a way to get home. Deciding he doesn't want to go home-ever-Joey takes to the highway where he is quickly picked up by the ruggedly handsome redneck, Owen-an older man who helps Joey forget about his heartache and pain, and helps Joey understand that he is strong enough to make it on his own, he doesn't need Doug to take care of him. Seeking to escape his own pain through intense sexual encounters, Joey takes to the road, always in search of his next "fix"-unaware of his true destiny that lies within.
