Book Review: Opening Up

Opening Up (Ink and Chrome, #1)Author: Lauren Dane
Publication Date: June 16, 2015
Publisher: Forever
Series: Ink and Chrome # 1

New York Times and USA Today bestselling author Lauren Dane delivers Book #1 in her Ink & Chrome erotic romance series.

The men of the Twisted Steel custom motorcycle shop are great with their hands... and they're not afraid to get dirty.

PJ is exactly the kind of woman Twisted Steel owner Asa Barrons doesn't need. The last thing he wants to do is mix business with pleasure, and PJ has some of the best custom detailing he's ever seen. But the chemistry between them won't be denied, and soon he's introducing her to a whole new world in the bedroom, pushing her far beyond anything she's ever experienced. PJ finds she can't get enough, but how far is too far before he consumes her completely?

And by the looks of it, Asa wasn’t the only one who found PJ Coleman rather delightful.

PJ took in the ridiculously badass alpha male across the room from where she and her sister had just been handed drinks at the bar.

She took note of the septum piercing and the tattoos on both arms visible from the elbows, where he had his shirtsleeves rolled up. It was necessary, for reasons of some sort, that she get a better look.
Lauren Dane serves up some steamy characters in her newest series. Her writing is as fabulous as always and her new characters and storyline will draw you in just like always. Our heroine, PJ, is strong, independent, sexy, and most of all smart and witty. PJ is how I picture any kick butt heroine and of course admire her sassy attitude and demeanor. Asa Barrons is the perfect hero to combat PJ’s sassiness! He is hot, bossy, and pierced! He is the co-owner of an elite motorcycle shop and is all that any girl like PJ could want or ask for in a man. These two amazing characters create some truly steamy scenes and add a lot of feisty dialogue into the mix. They had me laughing the whole way through. Both of them can be a bit sarcastic and all the witty banter they share is enough to prove it.

The Twisted Steel shop that Asa co-owns and works at was the perfect setting for this new series. Some books just allow a setting to really come to life and feel like home; that is what happened here. I cannot wait to revisit the shop in other books in the series. The crew that lives and works there feel like close personal friends and family. I loved being dropped right in the middle of their conversations whether they were heated and fiery or calm and relaxing. The book is full of conflict between so many of the characters and so many eventful things take place that it is hard to put this book down. I definitely cannot wait for more in this series.
