From the #1 New York Times Bestselling author of FULL PACKAGE and BIG ROCK, comes a hot & hilarious new standalone romantic comedy...
Let's be honest, ladies. A good man is a lot like the perfect car. You want a hot body, an engine that purrs, and superior performance under the hood...for the best joy ride of your life.
I'm at your service. Ready to go all night long.
But then a wildly sexy brunette appears in my life and throws a wrench in all my plans. She's fiery, she's talented, she's gorgeous, and I'd really like to know what makes her engine hum.
Henley also happens to be my biggest rival, and now we're forced to work together every day on the most important custom car build of my career. The trouble is I can't quite figure out if she wants to kick me in the lug nuts or beg me to give her a good, hard fuel injection. Until one night that question is answered on the hood of a sports car when she calls out my name three times. And we can't seem to put on the brakes. If sleeping with the enemy is a bad idea, how much more dangerous would it be to fall in love with her?

What I liked about this novel....
This was a likable short Christmas story that will put a smile of your face. "The Christmas of Ride" was just that...as Joy puts a smile of many faces on her way to her new place in Phoenix. With Miranda who was a neighbor of Joy's...who knew that when she decided to travel with Joy would give her a Christmas like she had never known. What Joy will do on this trip will blow you mind...Now, to find out you must pick up this wonderful read to see how well the author will bring it all out to the reader. It will be a read that you will not forget of how a little thing can turn out to be a big thing for someone who feels they have been forgotten. I loved how this author was able to give the readers such a wonder joy ride on 'Route 66.' Definitely what happens during this trip will turn out to be quite a interesting one especially for Miranda. I found this novel to be a very inspirational as well aa uplifting and will definitely get you in the spirit of the holiday season. Would I recommend? YES!
I received a copy through NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.
