Publisher's Summary

The Blue-Collar Lover Series Meet the Carter brothers, five hard-working men with a lot to offer. They may not be wealthy but they're rich in integrity and loyalty--not to mention sex appeal. They just need the right women to share their world. . . At thirty, eldest brother Byron hasn't dated seriously in a while--not since he became a single dad to his beloved baby girl. Besides, he's found that most women can't see past his job as a bus driver, and he's not interested in that type of superficial foolishness. When he meets Cynthia Hall, her disinterest is obvious. Still, there's something about her. . . Cynthia has been successful in her career and unlucky in love. But those two worlds collide when Byron ends up in her office on business. It's a coincidence that casts him in a very different light than she's previously seen. Too bad he's not the upscale professional Cynthia had in mind. Yet given the chance, she might discover that while money can't buy happiness--a loving and passionate man can…

    Audio books are growing. I have listened to books for months now, But I prefer my books in paperback/hardback format.

    "Good Book"

    Lol, this book was actually good. I been having a debate with myself and wondering if Bryon is a big guy or not. But when he said muhfa and she started saying it had me dead weak. Lol glad she chosen Bryon in the end. Lord knows I couldn't stand Cynthia mom at all.

    "Enjoyable!"

    It was very enjoyable to listen to a story about a man sweeping a woman off her feet and not wealthy. Just making the right choices to make his woman happy without a balling out of control budget.

    "Don't judge a book by its cover - 2 snaps"

    Awesome read. 1st I love everything Zuri Day. I haven't read a bad book yet.

    Although home girl maybe a bit bougier (sp) than me, I can totally relate. Her and her crew are educated middle/upper and desire men of the same socio-econ status. I don't see anything wrong with that. Sometimes, God places people n your path for whatever reason. I think this book painted a picture stating no one is better than the next - we are all people. Buuuut, that mama though - way to0 much.

    There were very many developed & interesting parts. Very refreshing read.

    Enjoyed - I struggle w/Blue collared selections in men - who knows, I could be stifling my prospects.

    "Awesome"

    I enjoyed the story line because it give me hope that it is not to late to find love. I like the writing of this Author because when I read another one of her books she was real.

    I'm a huge fan of Audible. As a school librarian, I've found that it passes my days and nights.

    "Good story, Not her greatest work"

    This is the typical love story. However, I did enjoy it. I couldn't believe the audacity of her mother, and I was highly disappointed that it seemed that Crystal fought alone. I would recommend this book.

    Story
    "Money and privilege meets the average Joe!"

    I loved Cynthia and Byron's love Journey. It was touching and definitely drama filled. And my goodness it was so funny. ( mrs. Carter) this is the story of a well-to-do woman who meets the average Joe bus driver and they fall in love. But you know there's drama all through it. I love the story like a mofo LOL I'm pretty sure you'll love the story. I did. <3

    Story
    "Wonderfully believable, skillfully written"
    What was one of the most memorable moments of Driving Heat?

    The exchange between Byron and Cynthia on the bus...the conversation was real, I've heard it before and smiledn just as I did when listening to the book!


    What about Shari Peele’s performance did you like?

    She is excellent at distinguishing different characters so that I knew who was speaking before the script identified the person. She was perfect for this book; her intonation, timing, and ability to exude warmth in her voice was truly delightful! Her brilliant narration made the book come alive!


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

    Who knew riding a bus could be such a trip?


    Any additional comments?

    Zuri Day's writing is careful and it is real conversation, culturally realistic and wholly engaged in crafting a believable and heartfelt story. She is superb and I do hope that she continues with the Clark family, they make me smile and sigh :-)
