The men of the Twisted Steel custom motorcycle shop are great with their hands... and they're not afraid to get dirty. PJ is exactly the kind of woman Twisted Steel owner Asa Barrons doesn't need. The last thing he wants to do is mix business with pleasure, and PJ has some of the best custom detailing he's ever seen. But the chemistry between them won't be denied, and soon he's introducing her to a whole new world in the bedroom, pushing her far beyond anything she's ever experienced. PJ finds she can't get enough, but how far is too far before he consumes her completely?
Review by Lissa
At first, I did not like Asa at all. I mean just because she's young, you're going to write her off. I mean come on! She's amazing. PJ is one tough woman. She knows she's beautiful and smart. She's not going to take crap from anyone. Not even her father.
PJ I really liked and had no reservation towards her. She's pretty kick ass and can hold her own. I think that's why Asa likes her so much. He probably hasn't had a woman, that was so young and strong. She's not shy in the bedroom either. Asa is also not shy at all! He's crazy. Not a bad crazy though.
Now there are good qualities to Asa. He's very protective and caring. Which is good. He's everything that PJ needs or ever wanted. He's dominating but I'm not sure if I was a fan of how dominating he was. However, PJ didn't mind it.
I really wanted to love this book. It was just good. The writing was good and everything else. I kind of felt the sex part of it was a tad repetitive. It felt like the same thing every time. I wanted to be surprised. It didn't have as much passion as I wanted. But it's a solid story.
