    Blue collar romance!

    The Body Shop series focuses on the four ‘bad boys’ who work at Webster’s Garage – Johnny, Foley, Sam and Lou. They are all well built, handsome, hardworking men, some with more issues than others. Johnny got his happy ever after in Test Drive, and now it’s Foley’s turn in this one. He’s met his match in the fiery redhead Cyn who runs the café nearby the shop. This story is all about relationships. The family kind, the work kind, the romantic kind – they all get fairly equal page time. Cyn is a smart, university educated businesswoman, running a successful coffee shop. She is a six-foot-tall, voluptuous red-head whose fiery temper is matched by her no-nonsense attitude. She’s a prickly sort, a consequence of being raised in a volatile Italian family. She has a fractious relationship with her mother who always finds fault with her appearance. The men she’s dated have all wanted her to change for them too, and it’s left her decidedly wary of new relationships. Foley will have to convince her that he’s different if they are to have a chance at a long lasting relationship. Foley has a much more positive relationship with his mother who raised him as a single parent. He’s known among his friends as a guy they can count on, someone who will always be there to help them out. He takes his job seriously and prides himself in his work – it may not be brain surgery but he’s confident in his mechanical skills. There are several scenes involving the guys from the shop either at work, or socializing together. Their language is pretty much what one might expect from blue collar guys with badass reputations (deserved or not). Lots of swearing, lots of crude comments about sex, lots of joking around. It’s the type of conversation I expect and while it might not be to everyone’s tastes it feels true to their characters. Foley fits the part of the tough guy, in word and deed. He’s not above using his physical strength to protect someone, or make it clear that there will be consequences if someone he loves gets hurt. This applies to everyone in his life. The conflict in the story is minimal and comes mostly from the different interpersonal relationships and not from any external troubles. The story moves at a good pace with lots of dialogue and is really a snapshot into the daily lives of this interesting group of characters. With some sexy scenes and a couple who seem well matched, Roadside Assistance is an enjoyable and entertaining story.

    Loving this series of bad boys!

    4 1/2 STARS! Brawny, dirty talking bad boy meets sassy, give as good as she gets tough girl ... and mad chemistry ignites! Loving this series by Marie Harte. The guys in this garage are raunchy tough guys and I love it! Foley Sanders doesn't know what to think when sexy Cynthia Nichols comes in to Webster's Garage and tells him what for! He should be irritated that someone just copped such an attitude with him, but WOW, he just can't get over what a gorgeous spitfire she is! Cyn was having a bad day and that one more thing just pushed her over the top and she exploded. She really shouldn't have been so mean to Foley ... but he's just another man right? Foley can't put the enticing temptress out of his mind and decides he has to pursue her ... but she's not having it!

    Charming and refreshing characters

    4.5 Stars I enjoyed Test Drive a lot but Roadside Assistance is an absolute delight. It's funny, it's endearing, the characters are charming and refreshing and it's also very steamy. Foley Sanders is proof that you can't judge a book by its cover. A tatted grease monkey who is an absolute sweetheart and easygoing once you get to know him, Foley enjoys the little pleasures life offers, enjoys his friendship with his colleagues at his job and adores his mom. All it takes for him to want more is one encounter with Cynthia 'Cyn' Nichols and even though she has expressed a desire to only be friends, Foley is willing to hold out for more. Cyn has attained success in business but the same has eluded her in her personal life. A plus-sized beauty, Cyn has battled with self-image issues all her life and covers the hurt from criticisms about her body with a larger-than-life attitude, and after her last relationship went kaput she is not looking to dive back into the dating pool. Foley is a distraction she can't afford but everything she wants in a man, if only she can trust her own judgement. I adored Cyn and Foley. Foley is the sweetest guy and so very mellow about everything, very much the opposite of the fiery Cyn and he's just the guy to handle her intensity. I liked that in spite of her accomplishments, Cyn was very down to earth and did not see Foley and his crew as beneath her. Of course their friends and family add to the drama surrounding them but my favorite thing is that they were adults about their relationship and kept the communication lines open. There is a tenderness to this book that caught me off guard, in a good way and there was something about these characters that struck a chord within me. With Foley, it was his simplicity and the fact that he had his priorities in order. He enjoyed his family, friends and job and he wasn't trying to be the next big thing or make the next million. With Cyn, it's that she had success, but her life wasn't really full because of her issues with her mom. They weren't perfect but they were just right for each other. I have read a few of Ms. Harte's books and I can say with certainty that Roadside Assistance is my favorite. I'm looking forward to Sam and Lou's stories and hope they will be as good as this one.
