He never planned on falling for the enemy…
Indebted to a local crime boss thanks to their father’s gambling debts, mechanic Joe Colton and his brother have been forced to steal cars for three soul-killing years. But when Joe saves the man’s niece from police – the same deliciously hot-blooded woman sabotaging their efforts to clear the debt – it’s time to negotiate new terms. And discover why, that one night, she burned him with a kiss then ran…Darcey Connors will do anything to get her baby brother away from the criminals in her family – even screw up a good man’s life. Yet in the midst of tailing Joe, she somehow falls hard for the sexy tattooed car thief. Nothing can happen between them, but she owes him big time, and if he’s going it alone, she is going to help. As long as no one ever finds out – not Joe, her family, the police – or she could lose everything.
I voluntarily reviewed a complimentary copy of this book.
I freaking loved this book. This series just keeps getting better and better. I’m sorely tempted to go on a Sherilee Gray reading spree at the moment. Spin is a hot, sweet, emotive story I just couldn’t put down. I literally fell asleep with the kindle in my hands and conked myself in the forehead, it was painful but still worth it.
After enjoying the crap out of Swerve, I was most intrigued by Joe and the girl he saved. Now the story centers on Joe being the best kind of guy there is, by doing what he considers right by his brother and letting him have his HEA no matter the costs to himself. In comes Darcey, a girl under the same thumb as Joe and with her own set of problems.
She is barely making it through the day as it is, and following Joe has become the only respite from her ugly life. Even if she knows he hates her guts, and has more than justified reasons to, she just can’t help herself. There’s something about him that calls to her.
I really liked and connected to both Darcey and Joe, how they did whatever they had to, in order to protect those dear to them. Yes, at one point or another I thought there were other ways they could have played their situations, but hey! This was one hell of an entertaining book and I wouldn’t change a thing. Well, maybe Joe’s nickname for his dick…
“But now you’ve hurt The Beast’s feelings. He might need another night off after that insult.”
Her mouth dropped open. “You’re serious? You’re cutting me off because I hurt your penis’s feelings?”
While the resolution of both their issues was a bit too simple, this is not a suspense but a crazy effing hot romance, so with a simple “huh… that was way too easy” I ignored it and kept on reading.
“Where the fuck are you, woman? My dick’s hard. We’ve talked about this before. If I have a boner, it’s your job to get on it as fast as you can, remember? Why are you doing this to me? Why are you trying to hurt me this way?”
“My God, you’re a brat.”
“But my balls ache. Come make them better.”
Their banter and chemistry is what made this a total score for me, Joe’s goofiness was just the cherry on top.
“Um… what’s going on? Your message sounded urgent.”
“Okay, so why the restaurant?”
“Because I was super hungry.”
“That was the emergency?”
“Yep. I needed steak and this place has the best.”
I loved the story. I loved them both. I loved their families. And that epilogue? I just FLOVED the crap out of Spin.
