Review: JOY RIDE by Lauren Blakely

joy ride

Start your engines ladies, ’cause Max Summers is going to take you on a very memorable joy ride!

Wowza…this book was utterly fantastic! Smoking hot, with an over-abundance of sexual tension and sexy cars, Joy Ride is your enticing ticket to the fast lane!

Max and Henley have a very unique and complicated relationship. Once Max’s apprentice, Henley has now become his competition, in more ways than one. And when a once-in-a-lifetime job is presented to both of them, they have to set aside any hostility towards one another, and their raging libidos, to find a way to make working together possible.

First off, let me just say that I LOVE Lauren’s male-POV stories! I don’t know how she does it, but she captures her reader’s attention from page one, and takes them on an epic journey through the man’s mind. My guess would be she knows sorcery…but hey *shrugs* I’ve been known to be wrong a time or two.

Max….oh Max, Max, Max….you devilishly sexy grease monkey.! He is the ultimate man’s man. Tough, rugged, with so much sex appeal I’m surprised he doesn’t get bombarded with tons of fan mail containing women’s underwear. HAVE MERCY, what that man can do with his “tools”! But the character that really stole the show for me was Henley. Her spit-fire personality and confidence, along with her quirky fashion sense, really set her apart from Lauren’s previous female characters. I can totally see many women having girl-crushes on her, *cough* like me *cough*. Hey, the heart wants what the heart wants.

The undeniable chemistry between Max and Henley just radiates off the pages. Both are stubborn, both are strong-willed and competitive, and both have lost their hearts completely to the other even though they don’t realize it yet. And the passion they share is completely erotic and heart-poundingly delicious – not so much sweet, but oh so savory! Warning: get a fire extinguisher ready, ’cause you’re gonna need it!

This story will take you on a wild ride of emotions, laughter, and excitement! Joy Ride will make your heart race and your palms sweat. It’s a definite 5 star page turner, and one you absolutely cannot pass up!

5 Stars!

From the #1 New York Times Bestselling author of FULL PACKAGE and BIG ROCK, comes a hot & hilarious new standalone romantic comedy…

Let’s be honest, ladies. A good man is a lot like the perfect car. You want a hot body, an engine that purrs, and superior performance under the hood…for the best joy ride of your life.

I’m at your service. Ready to go all night long.

But then a wildly sexy brunette appears in my life and throws a wrench in all my plans. She’s fiery, she’s talented, she’s gorgeous, and I’d really like to know what makes her engine hum.

Henley also happens to be my biggest rival, and now we’re forced to work together every day on the most important custom car build of my career. The trouble is I can’t quite figure out if she wants to kick me in the lug nuts or beg me to give her a good, hard fuel injection. Until one night that question is answered on the hood of a sports car when she calls out my name three times. And we can’t seem to put on the brakes.

If sleeping with the enemy is a bad idea, how much more dangerous would it be to fall in love with her?
