“[ROADSIDE ASSISTANCE] literally has all the things I love in a Contemporary Romance all wrapped up in one delicious package.”
~ Under the Covers
I don’t know how I’m going to be able to write thing review without gushing or jumping with excitement. As you probably know, Marie Harte has been an author whose work I’ve been loving recently. ROADSIDE ASSISTANCE is the second book of the Bad Boys Body Shop series and it’s probably one of my top books by her. Not only if the hero of the book, Foley Sanders, an absolute dream but this book is funny, charming, witty and downright hotter than hell too! It literally has all the things I love in a Contemporary Romance all wrapped up in one delicious package.
ROADSIDE ASSISTANCE is definitely more sexier than the first book of the series. I’m a huge fan of how Harte writes her sex scenes because not only are they borderline Erotic Romance, but they also have a lot of emotions as well. The heroine, Cynthia Nichols, is a curvy girl who is quite sensitive about her weight and looks because of other people’s constant negativity. Her body image and how she feels about herself is one of the conflicts that arise in this book and I loved how Harte was able to address this. Not only does Cyn take action, but she also brings on a sense of empowerment that I loved seeing in her character as well. So the sex definitely feels like so much more than a few intense scenes between the hero and heroine because of her insecurities.
As expected, you’ll see a lot more of the other guys at the garage, including Del and small bits of the McCauleys. However, we get a lot more of Foley’s brotherly relationship with Sam. Sam is such an important part of Foley’s life that it would be impossible to tell Foley’s story without having Sam play a major part in it. I suspect it will be the same when it comes to Sam’s story because these two are two peas in a pod. One can’t exist without the other. I’m told that Sam’s story might actually be the author’s favorite so I’m even more excited about it now.
If you’ve read the McCauley Brothers series and read this book, you may catch the glimpse that Harte puts in about the Donnigans. They are the McCauleys’ cousins and I can already tell these guys are going to be an interesting bunch. The only disappointing thing about it so far it that it sounds like it’s only going to be three books in the series. I’m hoping there’s more around the corner!
I’ll stop this review here before I go on and on about how excited I am about this series. But just do yourself a favor and pick up one of these books. Seriously, you won’t be disappointed. Marie Harte has quickly become one of my favorite authors and I think more readers need to discover her work.
What did you think of our review?
Let us know your thoughts in the comment box below!
When it comes to books I’m pretty adventurous. I read everything from Paranormal Romance to Urban Fantasy, to New Adult, BDSM, LGBT fiction and even YA. If it’s got the littlest trace of romance in it, I’ll probably read it. That being said, my all-time favorite authors are J.R. Ward and Karen Marie Moning.
When I’m not submerged in a good book, you can find me musing about makeup and fashion or dreaming about boys and beaches. My love for all things David Gandy is well documented on the Internet and we’ll be getting married shortly. I’ll be sure to send you an invite to the wedding! ;P Until then, check out my reviews and let’s talk books!
