Natalie Bourne thinks she has the perfect night planned for her twenty-first birthday. But when her car breaks down and her boyfriend bails on her, she's left stranded in an auto shop dealing with a way too cocky, way too hot mechanic, who seems to be intent on pushing every button she has.
Monroe Hawkins knows he shouldn't be messing with a girl from the uppity private college. Especially when he can tell she sees him as the help. But he's having trouble resisting the redhead with the smart mouth and the killer legs. So when Natalie's night goes from bad to worse, there's no way he's letting her spend her birthday alone. He makes her a deal--he'll take her home but not until the sun comes up.
Ten hours, one motorcycle, and the city of Austin at their fingertips...things are about to take a major detour. And soon, there may be no U-turn in sight.
I love Roni Loren’s Loving on the Edge series. Well, the few I read so far, anyway. So even though Nice Girls Don’t Ride is a standalone novella, I was excited to read it. It’s a super quick read, but has that Loren magic that makes it oh so sexy.
When Natalie’s birthday turns out to be the worst day, Monroe offers to make the rest of the night a fun one. After everything she’s been through, the girl deserves to have a good time.
I loved the chemistry between them from the moment they met. They just have this easy way about them that made it so sweet, which was made even better by their fun teasing and banter. They are a couple I could easily get lost in.
Like I said, this is a novella, but damn, this could have been turned into a fantastic full novel. I would’ve loved to get more of what happened between the end and the epilogue View Spoiler »I love road trips in books! « Hide Spoiler. Despite the length, it’s still full of wonderful feels.
I just want to say something regarding the beginning of the book: being cautious and verifying who you’re getting in a vehicle with should never be wrote off as being paranoid or ridiculous. Just because they have a company logo or even flash a badge doesn’t automatically mean they’re safe. No matter how hot the guy is.
Nice Girls Don’t Ride was fun, sexy and sweet. Definitely worth the read.
