He's driving her crazy...

Piper West is finally on her own, and it's time to get crazy. Except that her overprotective big bro has enlisted his ex-cop best friend to keep an eye on his baby sister. With every move monitored and reported back, Piper's life has gone from "going crazy" to "being driven crazy." But a searing-hot kiss with her sexy and scarred watchdog is just the game-changer she needs...

Cole Black owes Piper's brother big-time, but there's nothing easy about his new assignment. Piper is all feisty sexiness and curves meant to tempt a man beyond reason, and Cole can't stop himself. Now he's caught up in a hunger like nothing he's ever known, and he can't get enough...

Even if Piper's the one girl he's not allowed to have

To quote a famous line ~ "What we have here is a failure to communicate."
This is the perfect line for this story.

This is one of those stories that even if you haven't read the first two books, you can still follow what is happening with the characters.  You even gain insight into the other relationships between the friends and can follow along and all but catch up with what is taking place.  That in itself makes the story worth reading.

Now, for the characters, I liked the way that Sherilee writes Piper and her insecurities with herself.  Now, don't get me wrong, she is not insecure, but she feels as if she is not the prettiest woman, or that she is they type of woman that Cole would desire.  There has been some point with us all that we have felt that we don't look the "part or type."  Not, only that but she feels as if she is not appreciated as a mechanic and body repair person by her sister and her best friend.  These also cause somewhat of a conflict for her inner self.

Now as for Cole, he has his own demons to contend with.  He feels as if he doesn't deserve first to find happiness, love, and companionship.  Also, due to the accident, he has trouble facing the fact that someone would not only find him desirable, but would actually want to be with him, baggage and all.

Now, you are starting to see where my quote comes into play.  But, don't let that fool you to think that this book is about that, because, well, you would just be wrong.  The mystery that unfolds will have you going, nope, never saw that coming.  Trust me if you say other wise then you are just flat out lying.   Sherilee does a wonderful job of keeping the main part of the conflict a secret til the very end of the book.  So, yes, you will set up reading it until you get to the final page.

As you can tell, yes, I enjoyed reading this story very much.  Now, if I can find time I plan to read the first two books, just because I want to see how they all fell magically in love. Ya, know with it being February, the month of love and all.  And isn't that why we all read these hot and steamy romances anyway.  And yes, if you are wondering, the sex is off the charts in this book.  So I am going to let you read the story now, because I know I have your interest raised.  

Sherilee Gray writes sexy, edgy contemporary and paranormal romance. Stories full of heat and high emotion, following stubborn characters as they fight against the odds… and their happily ever after. She’s a kiwi girl and lives in beautiful NZ with her husband and their two children. When not writing or fueling her voracious book addiction, she can be found dreaming of far off places with a mug of tea in one hand and a bar of Cadburys Rocky Road chocolate in the other.

Synopsis: She swore never to trust him again...

Fiery mechanic Alexandra Franco should have known better. Years ago, her best friends' older brother took her virginity and broke her heart-or rather, doused it with gasoline, lit a match, and then walked away. And Alex definitely should not have indulged in another hot night with him after the fact. He's not the same boy she fell for, and she sure as hell doesn't want anything to do with the wealthy, ruthless man he's become.

Walking away from Alex was the biggest mistake of Deacon West's life. She belongs with him, and if getting her back means playing dirty, so be it. If she'll grant him a three-month, no-strings affair, he won't sell the building Alex and his sisters use for their auto repair business. Hell, he'll even sign it over to them. But will Alex ever entrust her heart to him again, or are they destined to crash and burn?

Synopsis: He'll rev her up and drive her to the edge...

Rusty West swore she was done with men. Instead, she channeled her passion into West Restoration, the car shop she runs with her sisters. But Rusty's aloof composure fades when the owner of the competition comes striding into her shop, over six feet of sexy, rough-edged confidence…hot enough to send Rusty's motor into overdrive.

Reid Parker worked his ass off to get what he wants—and what he wants is West Restoration and its crew. He never expected to find a shop of all-female mechanics…or the stunning redhead who ignites a lust that threatens his cool. But Reid plays carefully. He never, ever gets involved with a woman beyond one night.

And no matter how hot the sparks, Rusty will never compromise her business for a man…
