Publisher's Summary

From the number-one New York Times best-selling author of Full Package and Big Rock comes a hot and hilarious new standalone romantic comedy.
Let's be honest, ladies. A good man is a lot like the perfect car. You want a hot body, an engine that purrs, and superior performance under the hood...for the best joy ride of your life.
I'm at your service. Ready to go all night long.
But then a wildly sexy brunette appears in my life and throws a wrench in all my plans. She's fiery, she's talented, she's gorgeous, and I'd really like to know what makes her engine hum.
Henley also happens to be my biggest rival, and now we're forced to work together every day on the most important custom car build of my career. The trouble is I can't quite figure out if she wants to kick me in the lug nuts or beg me to give her a good, hard fuel injection. Until one night that question is answered on the hood of a sports car when she calls out my name three times. And we can't seem to put on the brakes.
If sleeping with the enemy is a bad idea, how much more dangerous would it be to fall in love with her?

One click

Wow this author writes fun and witty stories. Keeps you smiling at the banter between the character. Mentions a few other characters in previous book and the voice of Sebastian York just finishes it off.

Great Ride indeed

Would you listen to Joy Ride again? Why?

I sure would.. b/c it was everything I wanted in a romance/comedy book.. romance... comedy.. good storyline.. strong characters... and a HEA ending..

What did you like best about this story?

I loved how characters from past books tied into the story...

Have you listened to any of Sebastian York’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

Oh HELL YES! Sebastian is a master of narration. I read one review that said that his voice isn't suited for all books... and the reviewer was right.. I've heard him in some stories where the characters just weren't strong enough for such a powerful voice.. but he was absolutely PERFECT for this.. I typically prefer dual narration... female narrators for the female parts and male for the male parts but Sebastian knocked this one out of the park

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

Yes but life just wouldn't let my listening be great..

When I saw a new rom/com book by Lauren Blakey had been released and it was performed by Sebastian York.. I one clicked this baby because it seemed like a match made in Heaven.. and sure enough it was.

Max is the talented King of custom built dream cars.. but he is also the passionate King of pleasure and the lusty King of one night stands - with a no strings no rings policy Max is loving his life. But then a lucrative and challenging offer comes in from the host of a reality show which has Max working with his ex Apprentice Henley to pimp a very specific ride for the show. They had fallen out over a cocked-up paint job so Henley's boss/mentor Max had unceremoniously sacked Henley five years previously. However, present day Henley has made a name for herself in the custom-build market and has become a strong competitor for Max's business, a slick feisty business woman, a talented rival, a very knowledgeable and skilled Mechanic, a sassy temptation and a distraction for any man.. including, and especially, Max. Because, no matter how hard he tries to ignore and quash his lusty filthy thoughts about Henley by disagreeing, arguing and bickering with her, it only fuels his desires, amps up the combustible chemistry and it turns Max into a possessive, passionate, jealous and single-minded alpha. He's determined to learn from his past mistakes, deliver the perfect pimped ride, keep Henley sexually satisfied and make her happy - by being a trusted best friend, a passionate lover, a shoulder to cry on and an encouraging rival.. but can it really be that simple?

Max and Henley have so much in common - they are both passionate about making their client's fantastical auto dreams come true, are excited by high horse power cars and have the expertise, experience and energy to bring dreams to life. They are both determined not to sleep with their enemy.. however, under this particular hood, focussing on the job isn't easy when tensions rise and their hot sexy thoughts soon become their hot sexy reality. Their intense sexual pull and flirty humorous innuendos turn into an agreed one night stand.. a two night stand.. a three night stand - and suddenly it's impossible to avoid Cupid's arrow. After a rocky emotional start, they finally confess their feelings, clear the air and bond over their mutual love for anything with a spark plug. Their sexual hunger for each other and their total respect for one another has them fitting together sexually, personally, emotionally and mentally.. but holding back on a new business venture and keeping secrets lead to a bit of angst, torn thoughts, tears and a change of plans. An enemies-to-lovers story certainly isn't a new concept but the characters, humor and conflicts in this refreshing story meant I was never bored. Told from Max's POV but there was a glimpse of Henley's thoughts through a few very short 'to do' lists that detail her needs, her wants and the actions she needs to take to get her heart's desire.

Worth a credit? IMO, a Lauren Blakely book is always worth a credit.. and to have it expertly told by the talented Sebastian York is a delicious recipe for a 5 star enjoyable, entertaining, compelling and humorous listen.

5 Faultless Stars

Yep well, got to say I can't fault this book, I love everything Lauren Blakely and that includes Joy Ride, a romantically sexy 5 stars for me. Following on from Full Package and Big Rock we have Lauren's next standalone sexy, fun read. I have a full on Max crush (if I remember rightly I had a full on Chase crush in Full Package), maybe I have a thing for brothers ; ) The chemistry between Max and Henley was palpable, I loved being in Max's mindset, his dirty thoughts had me giggling. We then get slight insights into Henley's mindset with short chapters containing her to-do list. I love how their thoughts are the same at each point throughout the whole story. Friends to enemies to lovers, one of my favourites. Sebastian York, as usual, nails it. The perfect voice for Max.

Simply panties melting story and voice!

I have received a free code from the author.

Omg. Omg. Omg. This story is simply hot. Amazing. Sexy. Funny. I loved it.

In here we meet Max. An owner of car customisation shop. He is handsome, sexy and he knows it. He liked to have good time with ladies but is honest about it so no drama from crazy ex which I liked. He always said not to mix pleasure with business and never sleep with the enemy but when he former apprentice comes back to his life, his lust and desire for her comes back with double strength.

I loved Max's and Henley's banter. It was sexy, funny and definitely hot. I liked that Lauren didn't create a huge drama here but kept it rather light. It helped me survive my first day after returning to work after maternity.

Ps. Listening at work might not be a best idea as Sebastian's voice is simply yum.

5 stars and it's definitely not the last book
I picked up by Lauren and not the last audiobook narrated by Sebastian.
