Summary: Asa Barrons is never lonely for long. Co-owner of the Twisted Steel custom motorcycle shop, he works hard and plays harder . But he never allows his after-hours affairs to interfere with business-until he meets racing royalty PJ Colman. While the blue-eyed blonde is all princess on the outside, on the inside Asa can see that this woman is ready to take a walk on the wild side.

PJ knows trouble when she sees it, and Asa is the complete package: fast bike, killer ink, and sinfully sexy smile that has her imagining things nice girls never do. She talks her way onto the Twisted Steel team to prove her painting skill, and soon learns that Asa is eager to show off some skills of his own.

With the help of Asa’s expert touch , PJ is initiated into a world of wicked desire. No limits. No inhibitions. No turning back. But as perfect as their passion seems , a new challenge awaits, forcing them to ask just how far they are willing to go…

*Sigh*….. That’s all I’ve got….

Just kidding.

Seriously though this book kicks ass.

“Opening Up” is the first book in the Ink and Chrome series. This story features  Penelope Jean Colman aka PJ and this chick  rocks, from her bad ass style, to her hair, tattoos and let’s not forget her kick ass attitude. She’s a strong independent woman and the depth of her character makes this book what it is. Now let’s switch to Asa Barrons, I can’t lie people this man makes my panties melt. He’s the bad guy you’ve always wanted, he’s strong, secure, protective and let’s not forget it’s a romance novel so he’s all about his woman and taking care of her. With his long hair, tattoos, piercings and dark looks he  compliments PJs style and epitomizes sex on 2 legs.

“Here’s the thing, I’m sure you’re thinking, What the hell, she should be grateful and do it the way I said. Maybe you’re right. But while I am grateful for the chance, this is creative for me. I have my own process and it doesn’t include you or anyone else but the owner of the car. I’m worth it.”

“That’s a bold claim.”

“I’m more than happy to show you.”

This story was hot, sexy, fulfilling, steamy etc. I could really keep going but I’m sure you get my point. This story flows beautifully and it hits on the backgrounds of each character without trying to one up the other. Penelope is that epitome of the saying, “Classy, Sassy and a bit Smart Assy, except she’s a huge smart ass and I love it. She really went for what she wanted and what she wanted was Asa. Asa is a man who can take everything that PJ throws at him and comes out on top every time.  Asa embraces PJ trying to make it in a mans world and really encourages her to push the limits and chase after the future she wants.

I love the feel of this “Ink and Chrome Novel”, and that’s why this girl right here is giving it 5 stars. Now don’t get me wrong this book didn’t change my life or make me ponder life’s ways, but it was definitey panty melting and kept me entertained to the last page. Very well done Ms.Dane!!
