Roadside Assistance (Body Shop Bad Boys, #2) by Marie Harte (Goodreads Author)

Roadside Assistance by Marie Harte

Underneath the axle grease and tats
He’s a gentleman
Foley Sanders figured he’ll always be content with a life of cars and casual hookups. Until a run-in with Cyn, a statuesque firecracker with a hate-on for men, leaves him bewitched and intrigued-much to her annoyance.

Maybe Cynthia Nichols was a little hard on Foley, that muscular, tattooed, super-hot mechanic next door. But she’s tired of feeling defensive about her size and has sworn off men. She’s got a new job, new life, perfect plan. Foley has trouble written all over him-no way is she going to fall for his charms.

Foley might look like a bad idea, but underneath, he’s all gentleman. Too bad Cyn’s not buying it. What’s a bad boy to do when the goddess of his dreams won’t give him the time of day?

Praise for Test Drive:
“High octane chemistry keeps the pages turning and your engine revving!”-Gina L. Maxwell, New York Times & USA Today bestselling author of the Fighting for Love series

According to me a Prologue or the 1st Chapter of a book is THE reflection – SO it must capture my attention from page 1 I will continue a few more chapters to give the Book a fair chance to change my mind!

Review! 3.5 stars


This book is very empowering especially for people having body issues!

Billy Joel – The Longest Time…


Chapter 1


The first few chapters did not wow me to be honest, it took me awhile to get into this book, but it was worth it – hot is a thought that comes to mind!

Type of Characters and my choices according to pictures :
Cynthia Nichols aka Cyn– temperamental, angry most of the time, beautiful, and when doing business NOBODY screws her over 😉


Foley Sanders – Grrr – look at the book cover – I could not find him on pinterest so I found a beautiful substituted
Heart of gold, real ladies’ man, flirt,


Relationship development


Cyn’s personal life has taken some knocks – but she kept telling herself she learned the lesson, she had many insecurities like her body size and looks. But on top of it all Cyn had strength and attitude, she owns her own coffee shop.

Foley Sanders is a giant mean-looking male specimen and a tattooed mechanic. Cyn Nichols coffee shop is right next door, to the garage where Foley works.

The foremost problem was Cyn’s problems with her body. Her mother kept belittling her and telling her to lose weight! So as you can imagine she has no self-image, she thinks of herself as ugly, so when Foley tries to whoo her she cannot believe such as sexy man will even look her way!

Then Cyn’s sister-in-law is just fantastic, she is funny and I just love her comebacks!

Chapter Development

“Cyn Nichols.”

He blinked. “You related to Matt?”

“Yes, is there a problem with that?” She didn’t pretend to be tired of that question. Matt was so handsome and in shape and popular.

What tree had they shaken her out of?

“Not at all. His grin broadened. “I just hadn’t realized Matt had such a hot sister”

She blinked “What?”

“Before I somehow piss you off again, I’m here to get the cars,” he said in a hurry

She felt herself blushing. “Oh. Sorry if I came on a little strong.” A Little?

Nina Cyn’s Sister in law excellent secondary character!

“Would you shush.” Cyn looked around to make sure not on stood close enough to hear them. “First of all, I’m off men”

Nina’s eyes grew to the size of quarters. “So you into girls now?”

“No, Ms. Nosy. It’s called celibacy. Well, that and cats” Though she never owned a cat before, they had a reputation for being independent.

Meghan Trainor – NO…

Foley grin and sex appeal: hmm got to love the man

his slow grin worked its way past her insecurities. “Nah. I keep remembering you coming and sucking the life out of me. That’s got me seriously excited to see you again.”

Foley sure knows how to woo a woman, “his slow grin worked its way past her insecurities.

“Nah. I keep remembering you coming and sucking the life out of me. That’s got me seriously excited to see you again.”

Foley is not a bashful man with some of his actions, “yeah, yeah.”

She shooed him away. “If you want cheesecake, stop distracting me.” He didn’t even bother to hide the fact that he adjusted himself.

Cyn and Foley are just explosive together, and the chemistry grrr HOT DAMN!

A few paragraphs I loved


Real women can be any size. Plump or stick thin, fat or slender, tall!

Because in the end it is your heart and personality and self-integrity that counts
