    hard chrome

    I read this book as part of an arc program. This is the enemies to lovers story between Tanner and Duke. Tanner returned to town after her father died and she is going to run his garage along with her family. Tanner had lived in Chicago the last few years where she owned a spa, but she is now bankrupt, but didn't tell her family. Duke is a mechanic at the garage and was like another son to Tanner's father. Duke doesn't like the new rules Tanner put in place and think she is going to leave soon anyway, so why bother listening to her. Duke and Tanner clash from the beginning, but there is also an attraction there. When Tanner starts to crack under the pressure, Duke is there to comfort her and soon they are together, only no one knows. Duke runs into family troubles of his own and Tanner helps him. I liked this story. I like how Tanner saw Duke as more than he thought he was. I think Duke was a good man who needed someone to believe in him. I love how Duke supported Tanner and wanted the best for her. Good one.

    Excellent book

    For my first read by this author I can say this book was awesome. We have MC's who have big trust issues and a lot of presumptions about each other. I was enjoying myself tremendously while getting to know both of them and discovering how they thick. The banter was funny, family ties strong and the slow birth of love was just perfect. Excellent book and I'm looking forward to seeing what happens next in the series. ***Review copy requested and reviewed on behalf of OMGReads Blog***

    Welcome To American Heavy Metal

    Hard Chrome by Vanessa North is the first book in the American Heavy Metal series. This is a contemporary MF romance that deals with a lot of emotions and the theme of family and love. This series is starting out amazingly and I cant wait for more. Tanner and Duke seem like they would be opposites but their attraction is off the charts and they find common ground. Together they are not only hot and steamy but sweet and protective. They offer each other so much. And the characters that surround them are amazing, interesting and entertaining... I need their stories. The story has a hood amount of drama - a secondary character's teenage pregnancy, history of domestic violence and other criminal activities. And the pain of loss. The story also delivers on sweet moments, sexy intimacy and the highs and lows of family dynamics. Well written and attention holding story for sure.

    Good read

    Thank you netgalley for providing this ARC in exchange for an honest review. Decent romance. Tanner inherits her father's mechanic shop and clashes with Duke, a mechanic. Although they fight, sexual attraction forces them to meet each other half way. Tanner helps Duke cope with a troubled family and Duke helps Tanner work through the loss of her father. Nothing Earth shattering but pleasant.

    A good start to a new series.

    Hard Chrome is the first book in a new series, American Heavy Metal, and the first book I've read by Vanessa North. I don't read a lot of M/F stories these days but I wanted to give her writing a try and I know she also writes M/M books. Tanner Ellis (a female) left her home and family 10 years ago but has returned to help run the family business, American Heavy Metal, after her father's death. She has secrets and things left things behind in Chicago that she doesn't want to tell her family about. Duke Wilson had a difficult life growing up. When he went to work for American Heavy Metal the Ellis family welcomed him into their fold and became the family he wished he'd had when he was young. When Tanner returns to run the family business he feels threatened and doesn't want to lose what he has; he doesn't see how a dressed-up, sharp-tongued princess has any business running American Heavy Metal. Hard Chrome has kind of an enemies-to-lovers vibe. Tanner and Duke strike sparks off of each other as soon as they meet and not in a good way. Tanner's making changes that Duke doesn't like. Eventually the verbal sparring between the two sets off a different kind of fire and they become involved with each other. There are a lot of really hot sexy scenes in this story but there are also a lot of very poignant family moments. Duke has younger twin half-sisters that he doesn't see enough of because of his broken relationship with his mother. Tanner feels a lot of guilt for leaving her family to follow a relationship that ended up being a disaster. This book was a pretty easy read; a nice medium length that I was able to finish in one evening. I know there is at least one more book coming in this series and the scene seemed to be set for it to be a M/M story (I hope). There were a few queer characters in Hard Chrome so I'm hoping for a series with lots of variety. An advanced copy of this book was provided to me but my review was voluntary and not influenced by the author. ***Reviewed for Xtreme-Delusions dot com***
