This book can be downloaded and read in Apple Books on your Mac or iOS device.
From the #1 New York Times Bestselling author of FULL PACKAGE and BIG ROCK, comes a hot & hilarious new standalone romantic comedy…
Let’s be honest, ladies. A good man is a lot like the perfect car. You want a hot body, an engine that purrs, and superior performance under the hood...for the best joy ride of your life.
I’m at your service. Ready to go all night long.
But then a wildly sexy brunette appears in my life and throws a wrench in all my plans. She’s fiery, she’s talented, she’s gorgeous, and I’d really like to know what makes her engine hum.
Henley also happens to be my biggest rival, and now we’re forced to work together every day on the most important custom car build of my career. The trouble is I can’t quite figure out if she wants to kick me in the lug nuts or beg me to give her a good, hard fuel injection. Until one night that question is answered on the hood of a sports car when she calls out my name three times. And we can’t seem to put on the brakes.
If sleeping with the enemy is a bad idea, how much more dangerous would it be to fall in love with her?
Lauren Blakey has done it again. Made me fall for Max, laugh out loud in parts and still have some really hot love scenes. These two people are so gone for each other and yet it takes them years to get together. Neither one had been in love before so it is really a journey they go through. Also love how Lauren weaves characters from her other books into this story. It's like visiting old friends. You will also go crazy for the cars too. I hate when these stories end!

Joy Ride is the latest addition to the long list of Lauren Blakely masterpieces. Amazing characters, witty and sexy banter, car themed innuendos and a monkey what more can you ask for? I had so much fun reading this book. I laughed. I swooned. I developed major crushes on both characters. You know, the typical reaction to a Blakely book. Gah! I am simply amazed how Lauren Blakely can rock our world time and time again. I am so addicted to her books!!
Max Summers, the king of custom cars, partaker of one night stands, enjoyer of baths, is dedicated to being the best at what he does and doesn’t want anything to distract him. When his former apprentice - the smart, gorgeous, sassy Henley Marlowe - returns, Max discovers she has taken all her talents and fire to his biggest rival and is now competing for the same clients. An incredible opportunity arises when the producers of a new television show want to commission a customized Lamborghini Miura. The only thing is they want Max and Henley both to work on it. Forced to work together, their undeniable attraction towards each other is too hard to ignore. Their verbal sparing leading to some of the hottest moments ever! Oh my God! The sexy times in this book are fan yourself hot!! Their sexual chemistry is spectacularly sizzling!! These characters are everything!!
Lauren Blakely has provided us with another fantastic, strong willed and talented heroine. I love that she never writes a weak woman. Henley is the marvelous blend of quirky, smart, and fun with a wealth of car knowledge. She’s thrives in a field dominated by men and does it in heels while listening to pop music and drinking hot chocolate. She’s the best! Max gave me a different vibe from his brother, Chase, or the other heroes in the male POV series - Spencer, Nick, and Wyatt. Still a good guy, fun and playful, yes, but with a serious and alpha side to him. It was really hot. I liked it A LOT!! The poor guy, he tried to fight his attraction to Henley but his urge to have her was too strong. These two worked so well together, professionally and outside of work. *sigh* I heart them.
I can not state this enough. I love love love these male POV books by Lauren Blakely. LOVE!! If you want a light hearted, sexy, rivals to lovers romantic comedy with incredible characters and a fabulous plot line, Joy Ride is for you. I guarantee you'll fall in love with it just as much as I did.
5 Roaring Stars!
Lauren Blakely should have been a man! I LOVE her male POV books so hard and Joy Ride is certainly no different. I love a great muscle car and this book made me drool over the cars as much as I did Max. Max and Henley positively sizzle. Great characters, great read.
