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?

Excerpt:

I point to the guy behind the glass. “You want Peter’s number?”

 

“I don’t know. Do you think he likes piňa coladas and making love in the rain?”

 

For a flash second, a burst of wildfire curls through my veins. It feels like white-hot jealousy. Which is ridiculous since she’s not making love to Peter.

 

Or me, for that matter, obviously.

 

I fight off the envy with a full dose of sarcasm. “Have you ever noticed you never have a good pair of headphones when you need them?”

 

She huffs. “Message received. I’ll just shut up and read a book.” She reaches for her phone on the seat, but accidentally knocks it to the floor of the car. I lean down to pick it up, and when I hand it to her I see her playlist.

 

Nena’s “99 Luftballoons.”

 

The Go-Go’s “Vacation.”

 

Madonna’s “Like a Virgin.”

 

I smirk. That’s too fucking adorable. “You like bubblegum pop?”

 

Her cheeks go red. “There’s nothing wrong with bubblegum pop,” she says as she tries to grab her phone from my hand.

 

I. Can’t. Resist.

 

I don’t know what comes over me, but I’m pretty damn sure it’s the way this girl needles me. It’s her French maid routine. It’s her pushing all my buttons. It’s the way she detests me.

 

I hold her phone behind my head.

 

“Max,” she says, in a perfect plea. God, it’s hot. I can hear her saying it in bed.

 

I feign surprise. “Oh, did you want your phone back, tiger?”

 

Her eyes widen when I use that word. Frankly, I’m surprised I said it. But she is a tiger, especially right now as she leans across the seat, reaching for it.

 

Damn, I’m an asshole. And yet, I can’t seem to stop playing keep-away with her phone, jamming it far behind me so that it hits the side of the car. She lunges for it, thrusting her arm out, but only hitting my forearm.

 

She swats me. “Give it to me.”

 

My brain short-circuits. She would sound hot saying that bent over the bed.

 

Then in a flurry, she unbuckles her seat belt and lunges at me.

 

Foul play indeed.

 

She’s on me. She’s fucking on me. She climbs, stretching high, her tits near my motherfucking face, so help me God. They are saggy, drooping, ugly breasts.

 

Except they’re not.

 

They’re perfect. Lush, ripe.

 

Like her sweet perfume scent. Like her cinnamon breath that flutters across my cheek as she rises higher. As she reaches, her T-shirt rides up, revealing a sliver of her stomach.

 

I’ve never seen anything so sexy in my life.

 

I don’t move. I don’t breathe.

 

I simply try not to grow more aroused. But then she wraps one hand around my wrist and pries the phone with the other as her breasts smash against my eyes.

 

Man down.

 

 

 

 

 

 

“If I was going to place a bet on an author to consistently deliver a FANTASTIC romance time and time again, I would put all my money on Lauren Blakely. She always writes amazing comedic romances—they are sexy, entertaining and always original. Consider me a fangirl.”

~Mary, Harlequin Junkie

 

“At some points during my read, I would have to remind myself to breathe. I was so utterly consumed with what I was reading, with the compelling chemistry between Henley and Max . . . The S. E. X. Was. Soooooo HOTT. I’d argue it was Blakely’s best writing by far.”

~Jess at joandisalovebooks

 

 

 

 

“The dynamic between Max and Henley is addictive, and the story line in Joy Ride was down right juicy! I can’t wait for you to read it.”

~Angie, Angie & Jessica’s Dreamy Reads

Synopsis:

The highly anticipated standalone novella from the International Bestselling TROLL series!

FANTASTICAL & ADDICTING

At the age of seventeen, Cordelia Connor’s teenage life is not what it seems…. By day, she attends high school and pretends to be normal. But by night, she and a select group of other teens, called the Knights, spend their time training and sparring. They are preparing to fight the most magically seductive and wicked creatures of all, the trolls.

Cordelia yearns for her classroom life to end so she can help hunt underground. But time seems to be going by ever so slowly, especially while she watches other high schoolers date and have fun. To Cordelia, non-knight boys are off limits. Something that’s not a disappointment until the new kid, Daemon Banks, shows up.

Daemon is nothing like the knight boys or high school males she has known. He’s taller, stronger, faster, and up to something in Cordelia’s little beach side town. Because he’s a normal human, whatever his motives are… they should be off limits. But when a possible troll sighting sends the knights to a débaucheras party that Daemon is attending. Suddenly, his and Cordelia’s worlds get scrambled, and she’ll have to decide if she should let Daemon in.

Who to trust becomes alarming as troll sightings and mischief turn into a grave battle. Because of a traitor among the knights, the perilous treat only seems to be multiplying in Cordelia’s world.

Excerpt

Cordelia awoke from her bed to a human’s scream. Was that my mom’s?! It couldn’t be.

The sound made her jump up, immediately her heart racing as she squirmed to the door. She wanted to be fearless and strong like her parents as she ran outside to find. . . Creatures that made her pause, like they’d turned her to ice. Suddenly, unlike her brave mother, she couldn’t even scream.

Holy God!

There were so many of them. They were unnaturally tall, some reaching the Texas’s home’s ceiling. Others even taller than that, having to bend their marble-like bodies over. Cordelia’s eyes went from one stone body to another, each monster with skin that looked so hard and unreal it shouldn’t have been able to move and breath. Yet, each creature was fully alive and mobile as they moved and barreled through her house; a home that was grand and considered, to most of their neighbors, the nicest. It had been in Cordelia’s family for many generations. She watched part of its walls crumble… Each demon-like giant flaring their fist into the foundation. More were coming that were well over nine feet tall, hunching just to get in and fit inside. These were all trolls, and there had to be over forty of them!

“Oh my God!” she gasped, overwhelmed.

Her parents had never let her see what real trolls really looked like. They’d said she wasn’t ready. As scary as these trolls were, not all but some of them, the younger looking ones, were also strangely beautiful. Like works of arts. No wonder some false legends lied claiming trolls were the decedents of entrapped titians. They did kind of look like a giant race of false gods. Gods that could tear Cordelia apart for fun.
