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?

We already met him in the previous book. He's Doc Chase's brother - from Full Package. And also Mia's brother - she'll be the heroine of the next book HARD WOOD - with Max's buddy neighbor Patrick!

Max is making his money by sprucing up super-exclusive cars for rich clients.
Five years ago he fired his apprentice Henley. The prettiest and most talented girl he ever met. And she loves cars just as much as he does. But he fired her - we don't yet know why.
But now she's back in NYC, making a name for herself. And she's gotten even more beautiful.
And now the one job he was so looking forward to ... the one where he has to built a car for a tv-show?? Yup, they want Henley and him to work together!
Let the sparkplug-flying begin!!! ☺

Another amazingly funny and adorable and sexy Lauren Blakely Male POV book!
I just love those. I want them to never end!!! I hope Lauren invents endless characters for this 'series'.

This one was just as great as the others. It's just too adorably funny when a guy is telling us his story. So different from all those girl-POV books!
Max is so ... cocky, funny, hot!
He loves cars and his family more than anything. And he loves his sisters' bath bombs....but he would never admit that out loud! ☺
And the sparks that are flying between Max and Henley - phewww!!!
They fell in love years ago, but never said anything and never did anything with it. And they didn't part in the friendliest of ways. But now it's their time and the reader has a few amazingly funny, sexy & adorable reading hours watching them fight for their private & professional Happily Ever Afters!

I so want Lauren's male POV books to become  a tv-show one day!

JOY RIDE was such a beautiful story! Sexy cars, a hot guy & an adorable girl ... Perfect #RomCom! Hollywood please come and make something out of this!! Readers, please run to your nearest amazon asap for your own MAX - this one is MINE (and that includes all his cars too!) !!!

♫ She said hello you fool I love you
C'mon and join the joy ride

I have been singing and whistling (well, trying to whistle) this song since Joy Ride turned up on my kindle.

And Joy Ride was every bit as enjoyable as I thought it would be.

If you have read the earlier books in this series, you will have met Max already - he is the brother of Chase from Full Package.

I loved everything about the growly, sometimes surly car customiser.  I mean really though, what is not to love?  Good with his hands? Check!  No problems with getting dirty? Check?  The hot cars just make him even more luscious!

And then when Henley is back in the picture - well, I just have to say I have bit of a girl crush on her.  Smart, sassy, sexy and pretty much hell on wheels as far as Max is concerned.  I think I fell in love with her as much as I did him!

Max and Henley are fiery, fun and completely irresistible - both to each other and the reader.

Ms Blakely really has a knack for writing in the male POV, and I hope she keep writing them well into the future.

Now I am impatiently awaiting what she gives us next.


If you haven't read BIG ROCK & MISTER O & WELL HUNG  & FULL PACKAGE yet - DO IT NOW!!
