Test Drive

Body Shop Bad Boys, #1

Johnny Devlin’s had his eye on scorching-hot bartender Lara Valley for ages so when she asks him on a no-strings-attached date, he’s not about to say no in this sexy and fun contemporary romance.

Johnny is a charmer with a checkered past and Lara is a nursing student who’s too busy for a personal life and the readers can’t help but get pulled into the sexy bad boy vibe that this romance sets off. The chemistry sizzles from every page, of course that’s not enough for Johnny and Lara as they make this relationship take a heck of a lot of work, one that’s full of emotional landmines but also humor and fun with some good natured ribbing and cutting up between all the characters. Which by the way all of them are strong and charismatic and have no trouble at all demanding reader’s attentions in this steady to fast paced and smooth flowing plot that keeps readers glued to the pages.

Family troubles adds quite a bit of tension and fun to the story as well as adding to the emotional turmoil with some adrenaline pumping excitement catching the readers by surprise when a douche bag insists on getting what he wants but most of the suspense in the story is caused by the relationship which needs quite a bit of special handling. The scenes are well written and full of great details that bring the story to life and make it easy for the reader to become engrossed in the story as well as able to relate to the characters.

I think I could go for some more of the Bad Boys of Webster’s Garage, in fact, I think I would like to have them around 24/7, I love the family like atmosphere among friends and all the fun they poke at each other adds spicy fun to the sexy and captivating, so I am definitely looking forward to the next book.

Book Blurb for Test Drive


Johnny, Foley, Sam, and Lou are the rough and tumble mechanics of Webster's Garage. These reformed bad boys are used to living fast, but it's the women in their lives who take them from zero to sixty in a heartbeat.


Johnny Devlin's a charmer with a checkered past. He has had his eye on scorching-hot bartender Lara Valley for ages, but she's rejected him more than once. That doesn't mean he won't come to her aid when some dirtbag mauls her. When she asks him on a date as a no-strings-attached thank you, he can't say no.  And then he's saying nothing but hell, yes.
