Book Review: Joy Ride by Lauren Blakely

✮✮✮ JOY RIDE is here! Grab your copy today! ✮✮✮

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?


What do you get when you mix two smoking hot mechanics, palpable chemistry, and undeniable attraction?

Definitely a Joy Ride!! It has great banter, interesting main characters, an entertaining storyline, and enough steam to fog up the windows of any Hot Ride.

Here’s the breakdown: Max runs into his former employee, Henley, at a car show. Their professional relationship ended on a sour note and harsh words were spoken. Following that incident, there is no love loss between these two. But there’s a lot more going on with these two rivals. Joy Ride takes us (and them) on a sexy trip to uncover their true feelings.

What I loved: The main characters. Max is fantastic! I loved him. He’s a super fun character – sweet, caring, charming, and funny. I laughed out loud several times!

Henley is also a great character. She’s strong, self-assured, tenacious, professional, and witty. I enjoyed her immensely.

The plot, writing, and execution were exceptional. The story flowed well. It’s interesting and engaging. All in all an excellent quick read!

Max and Henley are perfect together. This book is beyond entertaining! I highly recommend it to readers who enjoy fun, flirty banter, laugh out loud romance, and sexy main characters. It’s definitely a Sweet Ride worth taking.

I rate it: four-and-a-half-stars
