Devon's Pair

Powertools, Book 4

Devon Giles is a petite woman with short blonde hair. She's getting ready to join another construction crew after she had to quit the last one due to a supervisor wanting more than he was getting. Still, a friend recommended these guys and Dev hopes she'll fit in and learn a lot.

Neil is waiting for the new guy who is suppose to join the crew. That doesn't mean he isn't going to appreciate the beautiful woman who pulled up in front of the newest project. He's shocked when she comes straight over and introduces herself. How is going to work when he think he's fallen in love at first sight?

James, Neil's partner both on the job and off, comes over to greet Dev before she's scared away by the scowl on Neil's face. Dev gets the picture that James and Neil are partners fairly quickly and hopes that the accepting nature that this construction crew has will extend to her.

Dev soon begins to feel like one of the crew though working around 5 buff guys who tend to take off their shirts does have her looking at more than her work. When she accidently walks in on James and Neil pounding more than nails, a crew meeting is held which leads to more than anyone expected.

Dev is about to have some fantasies fulfilled, IF, jealousy doesn't come into play. James knows Neil is attracted to Dev but he doesn't normally do females. Can he share or will he need to walk?

This is the fourth book in Ms Rylon's Power Tool series. The rest of the crew is definitely in this book as are their fianc‚es or girl friends. However, as enjoyable as the previous books are, they do not need to be read to enjoy this one though some of the background details would be clearer if you have read them.

This story is fairly short being around 100 pages. However, there is a lot of story in those 100 pages. The story pace is very fast and it seems like the story is over before you know it.

There are three main characters in this story: Dev, James and Neil. Each has their own quirks and style. They work and react independently from each other, one on one, together and in a larger group. In each case, their personalities emerge a bit more giving you a picture of a real person. There are no stereotypes or cardboard figures here.

Warning: Don't read this book if you don't like a lot of wild and crazy sex. There is a lot of it and there are a lot of ways that the characters have sex. There is everything from one on one to what resembles an orgy. While most of the characters are heterosexual, a couple are bi which does interesting things to some of the pairings. The sex scenes are explicit and graphic so you are warned.

With all that sex also comes a bit of tenderness and a lot of feelings. This emotional pull will pull you into their story. The care and love that are expressed feel real.

Along with that warning about the sex should be one about don't read this story while at work or in a public place. It is hot and will make you that way.

I enjoyed visiting with the crew again. I'm thrilled that James and Neil were able to find someone to share. Though I wasn't sure about all the sex scenes they were interesting, lots of arms and legs and other things to keep track of! Still, the fun, off beat style comes through this story making it fun to read.
