Joy Ride by Lauren Blakely
My rating: 5 of 5 stars
Yet another great addition to this growing stack of RomComs. It was full of laughs, a well played story and of course sexy.
Max is good at two things, cars and one night. He prides himself on being the best of the best and his world revolves around his business. He doesn't let anything get in the way of his goals which is why he is good for just a night. He is a fun character, he's a bit brooding and all muscle and brawn but he is determined and goal-oriented. And of course a bit dirty. While things in his world are moving along just fine he teamed up with the one person he thought he would never see again.
Henley is a car junkie but in a man's world. She is spunky and can definitely hold her own with all of the testosterone. We only get her POV through her to-do lists it's enough to grow attached to her and her motivation, drive and "girlfriend" skills.
I have come to thoroughly enjoy these books, they are refreshing and the male POVs are really quite fun. While they can certainly be read as stand-alones, I really enjoy getting to see past characters interact in each book. It makes you feel like part of this growing family and the check-ins on where they are now are nice additions. I loved the little bit of mystery that surrounded Henley. I also loved the man who thought he was set in ways discovering things like monkey bread and salsa dancing. There was also a nice lead in to the next book which I can't wait for. Lauren Blakely has made me a fan of her brand of light, romantic, sexy and well rounded stories.
