Book Summary for All Revved Up

There’s nothing Andi Manning doesn’t know about cars. Working at Kasen’s Kustom Automotive is a dream job, and it’s even more fun now that they’ve turned the garage into Revved Up, a reality television show for overhauling classic cars. Watching drop-dead gorgeous Dean Kasen work his magic on those sweet rides is no hardship, either. She’s lusted after him, but never had the courage to act on her scorching hot fantasies.

The network offers Dean the chance for the local show to go national as long as a sexy bombshell helps host it. Andi is perfect for the role—if she’s willing to discard her coveralls and bend over engines in tight shorts, tank top and heels. Now that she’s gone from cute coworker to sexpot, Dean can’t keep his hands off of her. But Dean feels guilty for sleeping with an employee and Andi has to wonder…the only time they spend together is for sex, so is it her he wants, or just the revved up goddess of the show?

Book Summary for All Tangled Up

Jesse Kasen has been working for years to turn Kasen’s Kustom Automotive into a force to be reckoned with. The show Revved Up was the first step in making them a national sensation. Classic car owners from all over the world are now flocking to their garage to have them work their magic in customizing those beauties. It took some strong-arming to get his cousin and business partner, Dean, on board, but Jesse is pretty damn proud of what they’ve accomplished.

The only fly in his ointment is Lola Adams, the new executive producer the network has foisted off on them. The little Georgia peach is a blonde bombshell that has “high maintenance” written all over her. From the look of her, she slept her way into this job, and he has no time to babysit someone who doesn’t know one end of a wrench from the other. She’s a distraction he doesn’t need, and it’s a damn shame that all he can think about when she’s around is what she’d look like all tangled up in his sheets.
Lola might use her sexuality to get what she wants, but if she has to have men falling at her feet and drooling all over her shoes, she might as well get something out of it, right? But don’t let her girlie clothes and slow southern drawl fool you, she’s as savvy as they come, and she convinced the network to get her hands on Revved Up because her uncle used to race in NASCAR and taught her everything there was to know about cars. She has the experience to work with the Kasen cousins, but they assume her sexy exterior covers an empty interior. She should be used to it, but with Jesse, it gets to her in a way it hasn’t in years. Damn him, and damn her attraction for him.

Jesse sees only one solution to their problem–burn off this frustrating attraction in the sack and get on with business. Lola agrees because she has to know what it’s like to touch him, just once, but she wants it discreet. The last thing she needs is for the guys in the garage to leer at her any more than they already do. Jesse suggests meeting at his cabin in the mountains and making good use of a long weekend off. He’s going to pull out all the stops, and bring every naughty toy in his arsenal, to really make the most of the experience.
Only problem is, when all’s said and done, they find out they have a lot more in common than just scorching chemistry, and they actually like each other. Maybe even more than just like. Jesse doesn’t want to give Lola up, but a lifetime of fighting to be taken seriously leaves her leery of agreeing to an open, permanent relationship with someone on a show she produces. Hell, until a few days before, Jesse didn’t take her seriously. He has his work cut out for him if he’s going to convince her what they have is too good to walk away from, because now that he’s had her, he can’t imagine a life without her.

Book Summary for All Fired Up

Firefighter Taylor Vance knows all about being a woman in a man’s world. It’s one of the reasons she’s been best friends with Andi Manning for years–they totally get each other. But now Andi’s gone over to the dark side and is getting married. Even worse, she wants Taylor as her maid of honor and stuffs her into a dress. She hasn’t shown this much skin in public since…ever. Oh, hell. The only comfort she has is that she can’t possibly know that many people at the party besides Andi and her groom, Dean Kasen. No one she knows will see her this way.

Of course, she had no idea fellow firefighter Shane Roarke would be a guest at the wedding. It turns out he’s a big fan of Dean’s reality show Revved Up, and his classic Camaro was one of the first cars they overhauled on national TV. He’s been hitting on her since the first time he subbed in at her firehouse, despite her no-shagging-other-firefighters rule. Thank God they don’t actually work together, but she can only imagine what he’s going to tell her co-workers about seeing her tarted up for the wedding. If he shows them pictures, she’s never going to live this one down–they’ll be teasing her until the end of time.

Shane’s been trying to get Taylor’s attention for damn near forever. He hasn’t had to work this hard in his entire life, and sadly, that’s part of the attraction. Taylor’s different than any other woman he’s ever met. She has him all fired up over her, and he wants to get his hands on her smokin’ hot body. He sees his opportunity at his buddy Dean’s wedding, and he takes it. If Taylor agrees to date him for a full month, he won’t tell a soul about her painted-on dress, and he sure as hell won’t share photos with anyone. No, he wants her all for himself.

Taylor doesn’t have a choice but to break her rule for Shane, but a month of orgasms on tap have her rethinking why she’d refused him in the first place. Dating a guy who understands her so well, who knows why her work is so important to her, can’t be such a bad thing, can it? But when lust turns to love, she finds out just how serious Shane is. This is a fire that’s going to burn for the rest of their lives.
