Coming Back (Ink & Chrome, #3)

Coming Back (Ink & Chrome, #3)
By Lauren Dane

SUMMARY

Mick Roberts, the newest partner at Twisted Steel's custom hotrod and motorcycle shop, looks like a man with everything. But secretly he still craves the connection he lost when his best friend Adam and the love of his life Jessilynn walked out. Then, he wasn't ready for the pleasure they promised. Now, things have changed.

Rich, powerful, and insatiable, Adam Gulati is used to getting what he wants. And there's nothing he wants more than Mick and Jessi. He hasn't seen either in over a year, but the second he sets eyes on them again his memories-and his desires-can't be denied.

After trying to live without them, Jessi Franklin realized no one else can satisfy her like Adam and Mick. The three of them need one another-in more ways than one. It's time to stop pretending and submit to the hunger they all share. But once they go down this road, there's no turning back. As deeply devoted as they are, no one knows what great bliss their forbidden fantasy will find-or the price they may pay.


REVIEW

More like 3 1/2 stars

Alright read, but a good finish to the series.

Again the issue of dragging it out. The same things get hashed out over and over in the chapters.  I did skip some just to get to the ending.

The sex is hot it got like way kinky and I am not truly into pain not my thing.

Parent issues were abundant again at least some one had good parents...Jessi.

Adam was intense and it seemed more his story the Mick's.  I felt Mick was kinda left out in some ways.  Kinda disappointed.

Not sure if this one is worth the price.

Falling Under (Ink & Chrome, #2)

Falling Under (Ink & Chrome, #2)
By Lauren Dane

SUMMARY

Duke Bradshaw, co-owner of the custom motorcycle shop Twisted Steel, is great with his hands and not afraid to get dirty . . . especially in his fantasies about his redheaded neighbor Carmella Rossi.

Carmella has been secretly lusting after her hot, tattooed neighbor for the last three years. His gravelly voice combined with the throaty purr of his custom bike never fails to send thrills down her spine. When Duke asks her to join him at the shop, she can't say no. Soon their days together spill over into nights that bring her pleasure beyond anything she imagined. But Carmella grew up with bikers, and knows how bad a bad boy can be. Can she put herself at risk for someone who has heart-breaker written all over him?
 

REVIEW
Good  read again. I would give 5, but it dragged again in spots like the first. I just wanted to get to the point.

I have to say the characters have terrible parents! Each one has parents that didn't understand them. So they were both closed off and didn't communicate well at times. Everyone has daddy or mommy issues.

Duke and Carm had great chemistry and the sex was hot. It is nice to read a story about adults and not young adults in their twenties that don't have a clue about life. The characters have lived and have lots of experiences to draw upon and aren't wild, crazy or stupid.

A good read, but a tad expensive.

Opening Up (Ink & Chrome #1)

Opening Up (Ink &Chrome, #1)
By Lauren Dane

SUMMARY
The men of the Twisted Steel custom motorcycle shop are great with their hands... and they're not afraid to get dirty.

PJ is exactly the kind of woman Twisted Steel owner Asa Barrons doesn't need. The last thing he wants to do is mix business with pleasure, and PJ has some of the best custom detailing he's ever seen. But the chemistry between them won't be denied, and soon he's introducing her to a whole new world in the bedroom, pushing her far beyond anything she's ever experienced. PJ finds she can't get enough, but how far is too far before he consumes her completely


REVIEW
Enjoyed this book!  I really like PJ and Asa.  Their chemistry was hot and the sex even hotter!  But there was a good story around the hotness.

I really felt sorry for PJ.   Her family was terrible to her and I am glad she had the guts to just go her own way.  The book talked about how women are seen as weak even though they are more knowledgable, more savvy, and have more talent.  I thought we were out of the dark ages, but apparently there are way too many ignorant men out there!

I would have gave it 5 stars but it seemed to drag out the "I am too old for you" theme.  Hey if you are happy and that person makes you happy it shouldn't matter.  I liked the other characters they seemed interesting and I can't wait to read more!

Great read, a tad expensive for a spend thrifty girl, but I am glad I did spend it!

Taking it Off

Taling it Off
By Claire Kent

SUMMARY
Can't get enough Magic Mike? Let bestselling author Claire Kent introduce you to Matt Stokes, the sexy-as-sin male stripper and club owner who knows what it really means to bare everything.

Preschool teacher Elizabeth Marks isn't exactly thrilled to be attending a college friend's bachelorette party at a male strip joint. The sights—screaming women, half-naked hunks—are just as sleazy as she expected, with one exception: the man standing at the back, radiating sensual heat despite being fully clothed. When Elizabeth takes refuge outside, he chases her down and dares her to stay. It turns out that her mystery man is the owner—and, as tonight's headliner, the one guy Elizabeth wouldn't mind seeing naked.

Matt Stokes lives his life one day, one dance at a time. But as he challenges Elizabeth to get in touch with the passionate, impulsive woman behind her prim fa├žade, she brings out another side of him as well. This girl isn't just another pretty face—or paying customer—and Matt can't help wanting more. Onstage, he's used to exposing his body. Now Matt will have to expose his heart. Because when it comes to real love, that's the one striptease that matters

REVIEW
I am unsure not a solid 4 but not a 3 either...I guess 3 1/2.

I really didn't like Elizabeth at first she was such a superficial witch. I hate when people think they are better then others, God made everyone equal. She was so fake. I am glad she grew as a character, but I just couldn't love her. Matt at times was just as bad, but I related to him more.

The sex was hot darn they about did it everywhere except a bed. I swear they never got naked either.

It was a good read, enjoy.
