New York Times and USA Today bestselling author Lauren Dane delivers Book #1 in her Ink & Chrome erotic romance series.
The men of the Twisted Steel custom hot rod and 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?
Lauren Dane is bold. She writes really confident, take-no-prisoners women, and that makes for a fun heroine we can look up to, comfortable in her own skin but vulnerable enough to have layers. That’s what we have in PJ, a smart, gorgeous pin-up type with mad skills in custom painting. Asa, owner of a custom cars and bike shop, is a bearded hunk of a guy who grew up rough then served in the Army, and the result is one sexy, over-protective hero who’s on the dominant side when it comes to sex. They’re in each other’s world so there’s already a shared link there, and from the beginning, PJ and Asa are just natural. Instant attraction leads to trading sexual innuendos right away, and it. is. hot. There are curves and muscles, piercings and tattoos, and it. is. hot. He’s older, she’s younger, and it. is. hot.
