Hard Ride by Trixie Pierce - Blog Tour + Review


Trixie Pierce
Released June 29

Nothing is sexier than a determined woman, qualities Katie Parker has in spades. Despite her father's lack of support, or maybe because of it, Katie manages just fine with Hard Ride, a mechanic shop where she is free to do the one thing that sets off her spark plugs: work on classic cars. What could be better than classic cars and a sexy mechanic? 
Houston Moore ran as far as possible from his life as a Naval Intelligence Officer, right into a simpler life as a mechanic at Hard Ride. Having spent the last two years harboring a crush on his boss Katie, he can't believe his luck when she makes him an offer he can't refuse. 

While 'friends with benefits' is a comfortable position for Katie, Houston believes more is possible and knows how to get what he wants. But when Katie realizes someone's embezzling from the shop, things get dangerous. With Katie's life on the line, can Houston save her, and convince her there's more to him than just great sex, or will the sparks sizzle as the danger passes?

Houston watched Katie pet the engine, her smile small, erotic. She made a small humming noise in the back of her throat, fingers lightly tracing the outline.
“Damn, Edelbrock sent a beauty, didn’t they?” she whispered.
Houston adjusted his stance.
“All that rumbling power, just ready for the right person to handle gently, and rock hard on the roads.” She raised her eyes to meet his, and he jerked at the brightness of the jade green. “Ready for someone who knows how to handle her, when to go slow and easy through the turns, when to slam on the accelerator and let her run.”
His instincts kicked in, body going tense, muscles tight. She turned, keeping her eyes on his, licking bright red lips, rolling her hips more than usual as she walked to get the rolling toolbox. He didn’t dare speak. He wasn’t sure he’d be able to keep from begging her to let him have his way.
Katie was the only woman he’d ever known that could make working on a car so hot he was about to cum in his pants.

Review/Personal Opinion

Houston is a total Alpha male when it comes to protecting Katie.  Unfortunately Katie is very independent and has a hard time admitting her feelings for Houston and accepting his help.  The opening scene is hot and sets the tone for their encounters.  My only complaint is that I would have like the story to be longer to allow for more history of both the characters and what led them to be where they are now.  Overall a good love story - looking forward to more from the author.

Although she hates writing bio's in third person, Trixie does love fast cars, fast men, and an enduring fascination with internal combustion engines. Living in the Rockies, she's traveled enough to know the mountains are home. When not working, she can be found with her head under the hood, or buried in the pages of her next novel.

Debut author Trixie Pierce offers us HARD RIDE, available for 99c!
