Description

If you're looking for a sizzling romance as your next beach read, look no further! New York Times and USA Today bestselling author Marie Harte delivers intense chemistry and scorching heat in her Body Shop Bad Boys series, perfect for readers looking for:

  • muscled mechanics who live fast and love hard
  • fiery women who can go toe-to-toe with them all day
  • hilarious banter that'll leave you with a grin
  • undeniably hot romance that'll singe the pages
  • Johnny Devlin's a charmer with a checkered past. Stealing cars landed him in jail, but he's learned his lesson. Now he spends his days working in the body shop at Webster's Garage and his nights trying to stay out of trouble—mostly. He's had his eye on bartender Lara Valley for ages, but she's perfected the art of rejecting him at this point. Still, when some dirtbag attacks her in the parking lot, Johnny doesn't hesitate to come to her aid. And when Lara finally asks him on a date as a no-strings-attached thank you, he won't be doing anything but saying hell yes.

          July 4, 2016
          Harte (A Major Seduction, A Major Attraction) kicks off her Body Shop Bad Boys series with a smoking-hot match-up between a reformed tough guy and an equally tough bartender. Lara Valley's been hurt enough in her life. Does she really want to open the door to falling in love with mechanic Johnny Devlin, or is it best to keep on dodging the trouble that's been following her for her whole life? Johnny's had his eye on Lara for years, but she keeps deflecting his efforts to date her, no matter how explosive their chemistry is. At first, Lara believes her best course of action is to keep her eyes on the prize: her long-cherished dream of becoming a nurse. But just as she realizes that she's ready to take the risk of falling in love with Johnny, he comes to the conclusion that she may be too good for him. Will low self-esteem rip this romance apart before it even starts? Harte effortlessly draws readers into her eminently relatable, fast-moving story, and invites them to fall in love with two imperfect people simply longing for happiness. This is a sensual roller coaster ride with a sweet payoff. Harte scores again.
