Ink & Chrome #1
by Lauren Dane
The men of the Twisted Steel custom build bike and hot rod shop are great with their hands…and they’re not afraid to get dirty. PJ Colman is exactly the kind of complication Twisted Steel owner Asa Barrons doesn’t need. The last thing he wants to do is mix business with pleasure, and PJ does some of the best custom detailing he’s ever seen. But the chemistry between them won’t be denied, and one kind of complication turns into another as she awakens a possessive need inside him he’s unable to deny.
Racing royalty PJ Colman knew from the first moment she laid eyes on Asa that he would rock her world. But what started out as a fun romp in the bedroom soon becomes an all consuming passion. Soon he’s introducing her to a whole new world in the bedroom, pushing her far beyond anything she’s ever experienced.And he’s her sounding board, her refuge and her biggest annoyance as she has to learn how to manage an alpha male with protective instincts like the one she’s fallen for.
I am a huge fan of all books by Lauren Dane and until I started reading Opening Up, my most favorite was her Brown Family series. Looks like Ink & Chrome has moved up to the number one spot of my all time favorites!
Asa...Yummy! Asa is all male and as hard as the metal he works with in his shop Twisted Steel! PJ is so very different from her corporate family members and because she is so different, those running the family business don't believe in her or her skills. PJ and Asa make an immediate connection. Will that connection get in the way of business or will business get in the way of the connection.
I devoured this book in one sitting. Lauren's writing takes you right into the story-almost like you were an observer of what was happening-I love when a book sucks me right in! My ratings only go to 5 keys but for Opening Up I want to give it a 10!
The story goes like this: While on pregnancy bed rest, Lauren Dane had plenty of down time so her husband took her comments about “giving that writing thing a serious go” to heart and brought home a secondhand laptop. She wrote her first book on it before it gave up the ghost. Even better, she sold that book and never looked back.
