Opening Up by Lauren Dane


From Forever Romance (Grand Central):

The men of Twisted Steel are great with their hands.

And they're not afraid to get dirty.

Asa Barrons is never lonely for long.  Co-owner of the Twisted Steel custom motorcycle shop, he works hard and plays harder.  But he never allows his after-hours affairs to interfere with business - until he meets racing royalty PJ Colman.  While the blue-eyed blonde is all princess on the outside, on the inside Asa can see that this woman is ready to take a walk on the wild side.  

PJ knows trouble when she sees it, and Asa is the complete package: fast bike, killer ink, and a sinfully sexy smile that has her imagining things nice girls never do.  She talks her way onto the Twisted Steel team to prove her painting skill, and soon learns that Asa is eager to show off some skills of his own.

With the help of Asa's expert touch, PJ is initiated into a world of desire.  No limits.  No inhibitions.  No turning back.  But as perfect as their passion seems, a new challenge awaits, forcing them to ask just how far they are willing to go...

PJ is a strong, shining example of a modern woman.  Despite having douche-bag parents she is strong, confident and completely aware of her self-worth.  While I sometimes enjoy the awkward heroines, I loved reading about PJ.  She also doesn't put up with any of Asa's macho crap.  

Asa is a hot-head dominant who is terrified of falling in love.  He had a horrible childhood and didn't feel he had a future to offer anyone.  Silly boy.  PJ refuses to be pushed away or treated like crap (Yay PJ!) and well, you know what happens from there, HEA abounds!

The Colman parents are worthless.  I do enjoy the Colman siblings.  If Dane's foreshadowing is anything to go by, we will be enjoying the Colman siblings in future installments.  However, Falling Under, book 2 in the series, features Duke (Asa's business partner) and his lovely neighbor.  Check out this cover:
