Synopsis (Goodreads):
His goal is to stand firm

As the middle child in a big family, Len Thompson has found it easy to slip under the radar. His relationships outside the family-run garage tend to run a mile wide but only an inch deep as he keeps his heart, body and soul protected. But when the one woman he’s always wanted makes it known she’ll soon be leaving town, he can’t resist letting her into his carefully constructed fortress.

Her gift is rocking his world

Chasing her best friend’s big brother has both entertained and frustrated Janey for years. She’s not sure what triggered his change of heart, but hell, yeah, she’ll accept it. All of it. Every kiss, every touch, every bit of body-shaking pleasure. Working to meet her renovation deadline is suddenly not nearly as interesting as the mind-blowing escapades she’s enjoying with the big sexy mechanic.

When old fears threaten, Len must finally choose—face his past or let their future crumble.
Thoughts on One Sexy Ride: Len is a total sweetheart. Gun shy about relationships and letting others get close, he's the quiet middle brother who hides behind his silence. And I adored him. The reasoning behind why he's chosen to stay away from Janey killed me.

Oh, Len. You poor thing.

Janey is fun. Relentless in her pursuit of Len over the years, she's nearly given up on believing she'll ever get him. He'd been her one great love growing up and she finally gets the chance to see that reality is even better than what she'd dreamed up. Even when she's trying desperately to hold it together after Len screws things up and hurts her in a BIG way, she can't quite turn her back on him. She sees the hurt he hides even though she doesn't know the cause of it. She has a big heart and a huge capacity for forgiving people. I liked that.

Love love love the family dynamics among the Thompsons and how they aren't afraid to point out how one of them screwed up. It's going to be fun watching those other boys fall. I can feel it.


  1. I haven't heard of this series before. Do all the books feature a hero who's a mechanic, or just this one? Definitely want to read this book. Thanks for your review!

    1. The series revolves around a family who owns a mechanic shop, so... lots of car fixin' and muscles. YUM!

    2. Then yeah, I definitely need to check out this series! Thanks for putting it on my radar.
