Publisher's Summary

The men of Twisted Steel are great with their hands.

And they're not afraid to get dirty.

Asa Barrons is never lonely for long. Co-owner of the Twisted Steel custom motorcycle shop, he works hard and plays harder. But he never allows his after-hours affairs to interfere with business - until he meets racing royalty PJ Colman. While the blue-eyed blonde is all princess on the outside, on the inside, Asa can see that this woman is ready to take a walk on the wild side.

PJ knows trouble when she sees it, and Asa is the complete package: fast bike, killer ink, and a sinfully sexy smile that has her imagining things nice girls never do. She talks her way onto the Twisted Steel team to prove her painting skill, and soon learns that Asa is eager to show off some skills of his own.

With the help of Asa's expert touch, PJ is initiated into a world of wicked desire. No limits. No inhibitions. No turning back. But as perfect as their passion seems, a new challenge awaits, forcing them to ask just how far they are willing to go....

    I love being swept away by a new romance and thankfully Audible's ever growing Library means I get to indulge myself over and over again

    "I LOVED, LOVED, LOVED THIS LISTEN"

    PJ was quirky, feisty, very talented, confident and was so into the sexy, pierced, inked Asa who was Co-Owner of Twisted Steel a Custom Bodyshop and, because she was a very talented Custom Spray Artist, she regularly saw Asa. She made it quite plain that she was interested but, although Asa showed all the signs of being equally attracted, he backed off every time which made for funny, witty, snappy and highly charged dialogue between the two. Asa's problem was the age gap between PJ and himself and he thought she was going to be spoilt and silly but when she opened her mouth and was quick witted, clever, sexy, suggestive and had the same passion for motors and their restoration as him he was captivated..... but there was still the age difference. PJ eventually had to change tactics and when she did it brought out the beast in him.

    There was a secondary plot regarding the family business where PJ and her other siblings all worked but it was run by her very miserable and disapproving Father and her equally annoying Uncle. A lot of angst, frustration and drama ensues as PJ tries to please her Father but there's only heartache and tears. Lots of great supportive and likeable secondary characters both on her side and Asa's.

    The main strong romance flowed really well as it took a little time for them to get together but when they did there was a lot of passion, dirty talk, sex and Asa introduces PJ to his kinky Alpha side. They are very supportive and understanding of each other, there was a little angst once but they handled it in an adult way and it was really nice not to have a couple with heartbreaking secrets waiting in the wings ready to destroy their relationship. Dual POV's and a narrator who breathed life into all the characters and added just the right amount of emotion when needed.

    Worth a credit? Totally addictive, really enjoyable, a Hero and Heroine with likeable personalities and very very creditworthy.

    "IT HAD SO MUCH POTENTIAL BUT FELL SHORT"
    Any additional comments?

    I just couldn't get into the hot dude he was so hot but he gave in too easily considering the age difference. The Nukie scenes are really really hot which is what kept my interest as long as it did it was just not what it could have been.

    "Lauren Dane did it again!!!!"

    I loved this book! The characters are real, flawed, and emotional. I want my very own good bad boy like Asa! He was hot, sweet, smart & protective.....everything I love in a male lead! PJ was strong, snarky and knew what she wanted. I loved her snark in the beginning so much! The sex was SUPER HOT and it had a great ending too! The narration on the audiobook was awesome, Sasha Dunbrooke really did Asa well too! If you love the Brown Siblings Series, I highly recommend this one too!
