Hell on wheels meets hell in high heels.
Bad boy mechanic Josh Stone likes to get his hands dirty any way he can—the filthier, the better. Ever since his wife walked out on him and their young son, he’s only had room in his heart for two loves: the kid and cars.
Roped into playing his best buddy’s gay boyfriend during a romance writers convention, the player meets the girl who’s gonna rock his world. Leelee Songchild. Shy, bashful, beautiful Leelee who blushes at the drop of a hat yet writes hardcore smut to rival Josh’s backlist of Penthouse Forum.
The only problem is his hands are tied. Josh can’t stab his old friend/fake lover in the back even though all he wants to do is take luscious Leelee to bed, and maybe, love her. When the truth comes out, all hell breaks loose.
Too bad romance is just for books.
✯✯5 Insanely HOT Stars!!✯✯
This is my first book by Rie Warren and I am a huge fan!! It's been so long since I read a book that had me crying from laughing so hard. I loved everything about Stone. He lived for his son JJ. And, the things he did for his best friend Nick. I don't know any man who'd do the things Stone did for their friends. LOL.
Josh Stone owns, runs & operates his shop. He's a mechanic & a manly man. He's divorced and fully devoted to his son JJ. Stone refuses to date and except for his Friday night hook-ups that is. He sing's any Disney song his son requests to get him to fall asleep. He has never been away from his son. Who is his life and owns his heart. That is until this week.
When Josh's wife left him flat with a baby he didn't know what to do. His best friend Nick moved in and helped him at home with his son, helped him at the shop and never asked for anything. Until now.
Nick is a paranormal romance author. Is a #1 seller and has a huge fan base. It's so big that he started getting stalkers and things got bad. Nick did the only thing he thought he could do it stop it. He came out as gay. A few years have past and nobody has ever seen his long time partner. Stone gets talked into going to a 5 day book tour. This is where the story get funny!
The other women authors in Nick's author group are awesome!! They all are about the kinky stuff. They fall in love with Stone the minute they meet or I should say see him. Stone has never had so many women grope & grab him. Plus, having to act gay. Was even better.
Stone then comes face to face with the newest #1 indie author of the group LeeLee. He's instantly speechless. That for him never happens.
The group gets into a nice routine. They are also on a mission. There is this creepy publisher who nobody likes. He makes every woman uncomfortable. And, the woman he's after next is LeeLee. The group agrees that Stone will take her to her room and keep an extra eye on her. Nick reminds Stone to keep it in his pants for just 5 days!! He lets his best friend know he won't ruin him.
Every time LeeLee & Stone are in the same room together it gets harder and harder. They both can feel it. Both know there's something electric going on. Stone has never felt this with a woman before. Not even his ex-wife. But, there's one big issue.. He's supposed to be gay!
Well, LeeLee and Stone finally give into their feelings. And, OMG is it hot!! My kindle was on fire when these 2 were together. Stone want to tell her so bad. But, doesn't want to hurt Nick.
The nasty publisher still after LeeLee. The group of authors get Stone into the craziest of craziest things he's ever and will ever do. Trust me Stone is so hot you'll need to cool off while reading 1/2 this.
But, between people being blackmailed. LeeLee learning things. Will Stone ever get his happy ending? What about his best friend? Will he have a best friend and will Nick loose his career??
You must read this!! You will love it as much as I did. Rie did an excellent job at making you feel the love Stone had for his mom, Nick, the guys who worked for him at the shop. And, don't forget JJ. There were times when he was even talking on the phone with him or with him that I teared up. JJ was the reason why Josh Stone breathed, worked and lived for. The length's he went to for his best friend, to protect LeeLee and the things he did for the authors he met. That he now considers friends.If I were you one click this for you and your best friend!! I can not wait for Nick's book next.
“I figured you for more of Chili Peppers fan.” Her rosebud lips burst into a teasing smile.
“Chet Baker, old school all the way, babe.” I leaned in those last few inches, licking the crest of her mouth, snicking her with a gentle bite of teeth.
“That explains the fedora then.”
I tugged the brim lower before angling in for another short pull on her lips.
Heat, sex, need raced between us, speeded by the fuel of shared memories.
This is it. The feeling of being all alone, together. It raced up my spine and pounded through my body, slamming right into my heart. What my folks had, I’d only experienced with Leelee. The night of the tango, in a roomful of people, we’d been intent on each other. She was heaven in my arms and I wanted nothing more, no one else.
“You miss your dad,” she said.
I flipped my hat onto the bar. “All the damn time, darlin’. But I don’t want to miss you. Not tomorrow, not the next day.”
She moved closer to whisper, “And it explains the Dancing with the Stars moves. You really are a romantic.”
I never would’ve thought so before her. Guiding her off the stool and between my legs, I growled, “Only for you, babe.”
She shifted back a couple steps, offering her hand. “Dance with me.”
“I think that’s my line.” I brought her hand to my chest. Warm and soft, her hip filled my palm, her skirt rustling between us. Leaning down, I nipped her shoulder, drinking her body in.
“I’m re-writin’ it.” Her body aligned perfectly with mine.
“For All We Know” began. There was nothing but the song and the sway of our bodies around the emptied room. Bartenders watched, quieting their movements as they cleaned up around us.
Wrapped around each other, we danced. Her hand skimmed up my back, mine slipped to her neck. Our lips hovered but no kisses were taken.
Leelee’s cheek lay against mine—her soft to my rough. “Sing to me?”
No candles, no one else, my voice rumbled with the rich tones of old times. There was no fancy footwork, only feeling. And she felt so fucking good in my arms.
The music ended slowly. My hands snuck up her back, holding her against me, unwilling to let go.
Rie is the badass, sassafras author of Sugar Daddy and the Don’t Tell series–a breakthrough trilogy that crosses traditional publishing boundaries beginning with In His Command. Her latest endeavor, the Carolina Bad Boys series, is fun, hot, and southern-sexy.
A Yankee transplant who has traveled the world, Rie started out a writer—causing her college professor to blush over her erotic poetry without one ounce of shame. Not much has changed. She swapped pen for paintbrushes and followed her other love during her twenties. From art school to marriage to children and many a wild and wonderful journey in between, Rie has come home to her calling. Her work has been called edgy, daring, and some of the sexiest smut around.
