Review: Opening Up by Lauren Dane

Opening Up:  Asa Barrons and PJ Coleman

Twisted Steel Book 1

Opening Up (Ink & Chrome, #1)


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?

This book was actually quite good. I didn't go into it with high hopes as I've never actually been able to make it through a Lauren Dane novel before. I've tried several novels in different series and I've always DNFed them but I never stopped trying, I guess I just needed to find the right series. I really liked PJ and Asa both together and apart. As individuals they were each interesting characters. PJ is trying to make a name for herself in the custom paint industry and she is quite the firecracker, sassy, smart and beautiful. No man is going to hold out against that for long and Asa is no exception even tho he tried, even after PJ made it clear she has her sights set on him. Asa is a total alpha male with a gentle heart of gold. He doesn't love many but those he does he'd protect with his life. He takes care of his momma and sisters and has a successful business. He looks like a menacing hard ass on the outside but on the inside he's the man that supports, protects and believes in PJ. The plotline was interesting and pulls you in from the very beginning taking you on an emotional rollercoaster. PJ’s dad is an epic asshole but the rest of her family and Asa stand by her even tho there are some bumps along the way. I really loved PJ’s sister and would love to see a book for her. The men of Twisted Steel also made quite an impression and I’ll look forward to their books as they come.
