NEW RELEASE & REVIEW: Joy Ride by Lauren Blakely

Joy Ride

Joy Ride by Lauren Blakely

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?

Caroline's Review ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐

God! This story! I loved it HARD!

“She’s five years older and twenty-five times hotter. Yes, her hotness has squared with the years.”

Max Summers and Henley Marlowe parted on bad terms, five years ago. And, now she’s back. She’s in his city, in his business, and in his life. She’s one of the most talented people he’s ever worked with, and also the most beautiful temptation of his life.

When they’re forced to work together, all the sizzling love-hate chemistry between them combusts into something fiery and undeniable. However, they find it difficult to keep business and pleasure separate, especially when they start wondering if this thing between them is just a one-time thing, or actually the REAL thing. 

“That woman gets under my skin. Henley’s not just a thorn. She’s the thorniest thorn in the entire history of thorns.”

The author took off roaring with this story. Max is sexy as hell! Hot man, hot cars, hot mouth, hot everything! He fights so hard to keep things professional between Henley and him but she’s just so freakin’ irresistible, especially when she seems to find him equally irresistible. And, Henley? A womanly woman in a man’s world. She’s tough when she needs to be, but pretty darn girlie when she’s away from the garage. The unique way that the author shows us what she’s thinking was pretty charming and super cute.

“She makes me lose focus. She makes me want to be with her. She makes me f*cking feel. And that’s the problem. I feel something for her. But I want her more than I don’t want all the f*cking complications.”

I loved their connection, and their sexy scenes were scorchio! So HOT! I loved Max’s angst about their relationship, but I liked that he didn’t spend too much time in denial about his feelings, even though he didn’t always like how he felt about Henley. I loved his fierce jealousy and possessiveness over her. He just wanted her SO MUCH.

This story was full of funny, clever banter and dialogue between Max and Henley, as well as between Max and his siblings and friends. 

Gah! Just ADORED it! Thoroughly, thoroughly recommend!
